    I had a rather wonderful experience today. I've been focussing on my chest and arms, and today I burst a shirt. Not in a Hulk way, but still, the seams burst. I measured, and my chest has gained three inches with no increase on my waist. Go me!

    Isn't it a great feeling?

    I remember when I first discovered that all non-tailored dress shirts look terrible on me (because the taper from my chest/shoulders to my waist is so great), and I was like "Wow, that's awesome... it's gonna be expensive... but it's awesome!" LOL

    Hey Colm great news! I agree that it is one of the best feelings knowing that all that working out is paying off. I thought it was cool the first time my pecs bounced going up the stairs, odd, I know.

    Are you sure you just didn't dry it too hot and it shrunk? Kidding!

    Congratulations!

    My chest routine is really basic. I do body weight on my non-weight days, and machines on my weight days. I do 3 sets of 60 regular pushups, 30 irregular pushups and 20 diamond pushups on my body days, and then I work in sets of 20 reps with the heaviest weight I can lift comfortably to 5 on my weights days. I don't know what the weightsy exercises are called, but there's the one where you sort of squeeze the things that look like a thigh master, the one where you pull the two little pole things forward, and then good old fashioned bench presses.

    Any time. My methods seem to be rather ill-advised from what I'm being told, but they work for me

    Here's another feel good topic! Yay!

    I never wear suits, so the other day when I had to put one on, I was VERY excited to find that I'll need to have it tailored...AGAIN!...because my waist is a bit smaller and my chest and shoulders are a bit bigger icon_smile.gif

    Nothing beats the taste of progress!
