In that case, you are probably neglecting your lower back. If you're just starting out, it shouldn't be too much of a problem but I would watch down the road, it may begin to hinder your progress.
Keep that water bottle handy!!

<font color="green">I may switch it up a bit after the end of week 3. The <font color="black">12 Week Fat Burining Workout</font> calls for me to replace the DB Rows with Seated Cable Rows, I may add in some Dead Lifts then. </font>

Rico, I read the first part of your journal and the last part and you've made some major improvement. One question - what's a reverse calf raise?

1 pkg instant plain Oatmeal

[/ QUOTE ]
[img]/forum/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img]

[/ QUOTE ]

Here are the ingredients:

Whole grain rolled oats (with oat bran), Calcium Carbonate, Salt, Guar Gum, Carmel Color, Reduced Iron, Niacinamide, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Vitamin A Palmitate, Riboflavin, Thiamin Mononitrate, Folic Acid.

Is there that much difference in this and plain "Quaker Oats"???

[/ QUOTE ]

As long as you're eating the plain instant, it's not too bad. It's pretty close to Quaker Old Fashioned Oats with the exception of sodium. There's none in a 1/2C (dry) serving of Old Fashioned Oats, yet 105mg of sodium in an equivalent plain instant serving. Another benefit to Old Fashioned is that it's 100% whole grain. Unprocessed, so nothing is stripped from it. But, if you compare fiber, sugar, protein, etc., they are pretty close to one another. I would always vote for regular oats over instant, but if for some reason you just have to use instant, then just be sure to steer clear of the flavored ones - they've usually got 12g or more of sugar in them!

BTW - your journal looks great! Keep it up! It's a great way to watch and measure your progress! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I just got a HUGE (2 1/2 lbs) container of Quick Oats, which only ingredient is 100% Rolled Oats. I just finished the last pack of Instant Oatmeal this morning.

Oh, Schless, I'd never get that "flavored" stuff. I know they have tons of sugar.
