    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Saw a ton of police cruisers on the freeway while driving yesterday. On expected heavy traffic days, they throw every extra officer onto road detail. Saw a couple people getting personal happy holidays notes from the 5-0.

    There really must have been nothing to do where you grew up, to want to go to Winnipeg.

    Only a coward uses his hockey stick in a fight. Real men drop the gloves and square off toe to toe.

    Shot a 144/150 (96%) on my requalification today on our c8 carbine (colt canada canadian version of the us m4/ar15 style platform) Have done better in the past, but overall, satisfied with the score. Still maintained my marksman ranking within the service.

    Takes time to heal. Emotional damage takes it's toll. Keep working through it and the diet/excercise will come back in due time. Right now focus on the healing, then build back the strength. You'll get there.

  11. Have thought about maybe looking at some ported options for them?
  12. The savard website recommends ported or bandpass. I would go with ported over bandpass myself. They're site suggests 5 cubic feet ported tuned to 34 hz for 4 of those tens. Says if you purchased through an authorized dealer they come with enclosure design assistance through the vendor... https://www.savardspeakersystems.com/rap-10

    As you get older, it gets harder to continue with lifting heavy. The wear and tear on the joints just isn't good. Backing off of the heavy weight, and focusing on form and longevity from a health standpoint becomes the more needed focus. Maintaining a healthy cardio regimen is a must at any age. Focusing on using lower impact excercises is much better long term as well. In this swimming and cycling have huge health benefits without the joint damage assoicating with avtivities like running. I have switched a lot of my focus as well, not aiming for max lifts, or worrying so much about the number on the weight.

    I go into my workouts with a general plan based on what muscle group I'm going to train. But once i start the workout, exactly which excercises i choose as well as total sets, heavy or light etc... is all based on how i feel. I have a basic weekly outline that i follow that is a 6 day/week routine with sunday being my rest day (however i will still do some cardio/ab training on a sunday occasionally)

    Definitely back to herself this morning. Came when called, right to me meowing and wanting a pet. So happy right now.
