re: Anybody here play chess?

Posted by SaintTiger80 on 6/12/24 at 1:48 pm
Interesting, I started playing chess recently. I decided to actually try to get better than average. Then, Michael Vick playing chess. Now, this thread. Starting to think we really are living in a simulation and this is part of the algorithm. —- Books I’m reading/plan to read based on...

Did a highly modified version of this at 10 o’clock last night. After building a fence in the morning, taking the kids swimming twice I definitely wanted to just call it for the day. But I figured I could do something. I ran 200yards followed by 5 pull-ups. 8 rounds. So a mile and 40 pull-ups in ...

[quote]How do you know your percentages?[/quote] Either test your squat, bench and deadlift to find your 1 rep max. Aaron Asmus recommends using 90percent of your true max as your training max. Or just guess what would be a challenging weight and use that as your estimated max. ...

re: Weight/ Fitness Scale

Posted by SaintTiger80 on 3/28/24 at 11:41 am
Just get a cheap one off Amazon. If you are using the same scale every morning it should be close enough to track if your weight is going up or down week over week. Unless you are needing to track weight for some competition. Then you might want to get a nicer more calibrated scale....

I usually train Jiu jitsu at the 6am class during the week. After getting the kids in bed, I’m working out in the garage gym at about 830-9pm. Can be tempting sometimes to skip a workout at the end of the day and push the program back a day. But, it feels really good when you’ve been looking f...

re: Dividend Growth Investing

Posted by SaintTiger80 on 3/13/24 at 10:19 am
I focused on dividend investing for a while.. advice I would give: 1) you are still buying pieces of a company. Make sure you believe in the value and growth potential for that company even if your focus is dividends. Companies that have good/great dividends but whose business model is dying will...

Posted by SaintTiger80 on 2/28/24 at 8:13 pm
Diet is the biggest factor. No liquid calories. Only water and maybe a protein shake. Start planning meals so you are consistently eating good foods with consistent portions sizes. You need to be in a deficit to lose weight so figure out what you normally eat during a day and reduce that by ...
