Re: walking

3 miles a day (as per lesson 8) = 1 hour of walking at average speed a day, or about 6,336 paces for pedometer.

! find Lesson block 1,8 and 9 interesting. I did it for 4 days and gained 0.25 inches on the biceps. But one would think that all that walking interferes with gains. Also 1,8,9 takes over an hour each session to perform. I walked 40-60 min in the morning, did the 1-8-9 lesson block (which takes a minimum of 1hour and 8 min to perform morning and evening if the exercises are staggered to save time)

If I did DIPS properly to begin with beforehand (instead of push-ups...in progress now) , I think my arms would be within an inch of its proper proportion at this point.

Ive been a student since 2000. I got serious with the course in year 2000 (dips only), 2009, and now. I went from 145 lbs to 170 lbs because of the DT course. I am 44 years old.

Neck: 15.5 in
Forearm: 10.5 in
Arm L: 13 in
Arm R: 13.25 in
Chest: 44 in
Chest (exp): 46 in
Waist: 36.75 in
Hips: 38.5 in
Thigh: 22.5 in
Knee: 14 in
Calf: 13.25 in
Height: 5'11 in
Weight: 170 lbs
Wrist: 6.75 in
Body Fat: 20 % (Charles Atlas was 14%.)

I gained 2 inches in height from Lesson 1 and have to adjust all my measurements. I use my 5'10 height (which I have been most of my adult life) to calculate my body fat, until my height measurements become stable.
