Reaver would've been a cooler name.

Carrying one I haven't in a while, the Reave.  It's a hybrid, sort of the best of both LM worlds so to speak :tu:  It's fairly light too, which is nice.


I need to get a second hand Wave and Rebar to break apart for a mod like this :tu: Couldn't bring myself to do that to some new ones :ahhh :ahhh :ahhh :D

Mine weren't new, but not heavily used either.  That Rebar I had since it first came out, but the Wave I'd only had a few months.  Either tool is great on its own, but after seeing another member do a hybrid mod, I got curious and had to do a couple.

A little off topic in relation to our tools, but this is my thread, so I will post in here about whatever I feel like ;p. That is as long as Mags and Poncho allow with their Mod powers ;)

Since we finally got into our house a couple months ago, I've been able to get back into working out.  My equipment had been in storage for almost two years, and I had seriously slacked off on it for a couple years or more before that. 

Ten years ago I got into it, and really enjoyed it.  I was dedicated to it for the next couple years, but then got married and gradually fell off the wagon.  Once we had a baby, it pretty much stopped, although it mostly had anyway.  It's a discouraging feeling to notice the results from that hard work gradually fading. 

I wasn't in great shape anyway as I could have been losing fat, but really mostly built muscle.  Well, I'd gotten north of 250lbs, which isn't too good for a guy at 5'6" even if I did have some muscle mass.  Well I've been at it for 6 or 7 weeks now, and have gone down to 241lbs, although I'm doing no cardiovascular (had to give our treadmill away as there was no room for it), nor have I really changed diet much.  We do eat less junk, but partially due to limited money now. 

It's encouraging though, and it is great to once again feel and see my muscles coming back, and I've already felt an increase in strength.  It's amazing how the body adapts, even as I approach middle age (38 in a week).  I just pray I can stick with it, as it can be difficult to want to bother at times, but I never regret a workout, and that soreness is a welcome feeling afterwards. 

Anyone else into working out?  I know there are a few members who do based on the workout thread.  Ok, sorry for the looking pist, but I felt like sharing ;)

Thanks for sharing. I was a runner all my younger years. Cross country, rec ball, but was never a gym guy. I've always had a high metabolism thanks to being active my whole life but after my first car, college, and now married with kids, the "dad bod" is here :rofl: I want to work out more but having a manual labor job makes it hard to find motivation after work. Glad to hear you've been cutting back a little. They say eating habits are 80℅ of the battle. The biggest thing beside weight is health. Some big guys I know are actually the most healthy.

I know what you all are talking about :cheers: I use to be in shape and now at 35 I am not so much :D I have for the last week or so been walking on our treadmill and outside some as well (over a mile a day) and trying to cut back on what I eat also cutting a lot of junk food out :tu: I have High Blood Pressure and have been on meds for a couple years now and a while back got down to 230 lbs. but I have slowly crept back up to almost 250 :ahhh I am gonna try and lose some weight myself and see if I can get back into some kind of shape :cheers: Hopefully in enough good shape to cut back on some BP meds :tu:

I hear you on the dad bod, although I've struggled with that all my adult life, even before kids, lol.  Running is tough for sure, so kudos on that :tu:  I'm not a cardio/athletic type at all, but I always did enjoy a good vigorous walk.  I used to do that as a warmup to my workouts.  I lost a lot of weight walking and dieting in my early 20's due to my doctor scaring me into it.  I worked at a takeout place and of course loved the fried food ;).  Cholesterol was high, and he told me I was a heart attack waiting to happen.  Surprisingly now I'm much healthier in that respect, even if I don't look like it.  I don't eat like that though either, so I'm sure that helps.  Dieting is definitely the major piece I need to get in check to complement the workouts. 

My metabolism has always sucked, which makes it even harder, but I know it boosts with more activity.  Of course age doesn't help either.  At least your job probably helps some.  My office joblimits me there, but it's also probably the most physical job at the bank.  Thankfully I'm not just sitting at a desk for 8 hours.  I get out frequently most days, carrying various supplies among the 3 buildings.  I'll also do some push-ups whenever I can when down in the basement in my building.  Just a quick 20 or so.  That's one way I can tell my strength's increasing.  Push-ups are hard for a heavy guy, lol. 

Thanks for sharing as well, and for the convo buddy :salute:

Hey Poncho :)  I've been fortunate in that my BP has usually been fine over the years, despite my shape.  I was also a full time smoker from age 20 up until 4 years ago.  I say full time because I still struggle with it off and on.  Summer months are hard because I can just go outside no problem, but I try to resist.  Like Demel said, sometimes the bigger guys can be just as healthy overall as guys who look to be in better shape.  Heck my sister has the high metabolism and struggles to gain weight, and I'm the opposite.  Yet she's had more health issues than me, including a collapsed lung on 2 occasions.  She's the frail one, and I'm the solid one I guess, even though to look at us, I would be expected to be the unhealthy one.  I'm thankful for that at least.  Good luck with your efforts to get in shape man :tu:

Good to hear you are enjoying working out again.   :tu:

I don't really workout but I walk everyday and my work has always been physical. I'm lucky that I have a pretty good metabolism. I'll turn 50 next year and I weight the same as I did in high school  5'10" 165 pounds. I do use barbells once in a while and should probably start doing that again regularly.

 :cheers:

My dad (whom is a lot smaller weightwise than me) had to go on BP meds at the same age as I did :ahhh So a lot of it is hereditary I guess :( I just know how it is to be in shape and it does feel better :D I am actually very active for someone my size though :tu: Thankfully it is just the BP as my cholesterol is pretty good :cheers:

Thanks Steve.  I do enjoy it, which helps.  Some don't enjoy exercise, which makes it even harder to get motivated, so I'm thankful I at least like it, once I get going that is.  Once I get a few minutes into it, I'm good to go until I choose to stop, which is usually around an hour.  You're blessed to weigh the same as you did in your youth.  I haven't weighed that low my entire adult life, although with extra muscle, that won't happen anyway.  Still, I need to burn some serious fat to get to an ideal weight and shape.

Tomorrow I'll be carrying what many consider to be the pinnacle of MT design-the Spirit.

For some reason I don't carry it much.  I think it's because it almost makes pairing it with a SAK unnecessary.  It's basically a Swisschamp in plier MT form, minus the magnifier.  A Compact is a good companion for it though, or my Swisscard.  I think I just prefer LMs as their tools are different than SAKs and so they pair well with one.  I can't allow the Spirit to make my precious MechaRogue unnecessary ;) :whistle:
