I finally got my workout in that was supposed to happen yesterday. I made sure the gym clerk knew I was upset about the previous day and got a sincere apology.
My workout really pumped me up as it always does when I lift heavy. I just love how I feel after a good session of real heavy lifting. I forget about the stress of life and everything else that goes on around me and just focus on the feel of the iron bar in my hands.
I found an interesting article that is about protein cycling. Apparently it is a method for helping the body soak up and use tons of proteiin when you go up to a higher protein intake. You can read the article by Chris Aceto here.

Surprise Guest for Podcast (coming soon):
Can you guess who my podcast guest is going to be? Sometime after January 21, 2008, I will be interviewing this person for my podcast. The graphic below is the first hint.
Make your guesses. I am not going to reveal who this person is until the actual podcast itself, but I thought it would be really fun to see if anyone could guess who it is.
Until tomorrow…GET BACK TO LIFTING…
