You are invited to stay and browse through my stream. Here’s a quick index to my little corner of Flickr:

Automobile Photographs
: This is a very large collection of images whose primary, but not exclusive, focus is on American automotive classics. Images are organized by decade, by manufacturer, and by topics (such as convertibles, station wagons, muscle cars, etc.)

Central Illinois (except Springfield)
: Central Illinois (except Springfield): Photos relating to the middle section of the "Land of Lincoln" (except for the Capital City of Springfield) may be found in this collection. Every city and town I’ve photographed is contained within its own set, and rural (as in "countryside") photographs are grouped by county.

Springfield, Illinois
: All of my photographs of Springfield and the Abraham Lincoln Sites are in this collection. For the City of Springfield, there are separate sets for the Capitol Complex, Downtown (including the Old State Capitol), Neighborhoods, Parks, Illinois State Fairgrounds (and past State Fairs), and more. Photographs of Lincoln sites include the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, Lincoln Home National Historic Site, Lincoln Tomb, and so on. Also in the Lincoln "All About Abe" (Set) are a few Lincoln sites not located in Springfield.

The Illinois State Fair
: My collection of photographs of the Illinois State Fair. The fair offers something for everyone. Grab a corn dog and lemon shake-up, and come take a look!

Beyond Central Illinois
: Other locales in the United States and Canada including New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle.

In addition to my location-based sets, here are links to some "topical" collections and sets I’ve put together:

Barbers & Barber Shops
: Traditional barbers and barber shops are on the endangered species list. But there are still plenty to be found if you go looking for them.

Almost Everything Else. Check It Out!!!
: Included topics range from man’s first walk on the moon to small town schools and churches, and from Soft-Coated Wheaten Terriers (our favorite breed) to things that are abandoned, neglected, weathered, or rusty.

Are you ready to put the effort into building the muscles you want? You need the right knowledge in order to make it happen. Here are tips that will help you start building your muscle right away. In order to achieve the muscles that you want, continue reading.

Learn as much as possible about selecting the best routines for building muscle mass. There are many different exercises that work on varied parts of muscle building, including toning and conditioning. Use a variety of exercises and techniques to get the results you want for each of your muscle groups.

If you are trying to build large muscles, do not attempt it while doing any form of intense cardio training. Cardio exercises are excellent for overall fitness, but intense cardio workouts will interfere with efforts to bulk up your muscles through strength training. If adding muscle is your primary goal, focus on strength training and reduce the amount of cardio your perform.

Eating enough carbohydrates is crucial for building muscle. Carbohydrates give your body the fuel it needs to perform any exercises you want to do. Individuals that are doing intense exercise are usually advised to take in approximately three grams of high quality carbs per each pound of weight.

You workouts should last around 60 minutes, each. The body begins to produce more cortisol, a stress hormone, after sixty minutes of working out. Cortisol blocks testosterone and puts to waste any of your efforts to build muscle. If you keep your workouts under sixty minutes, you will reap the rewards of your efforts faster and enjoy the benefits of your hard work.

Protein is a necessity for adding muscle mass to your body. Protein is a major building block of muscle, so not eating enough of it may actually lead to your losing muscle, which defeats the whole purpose behind bulking up. You should eat one gram of protein for each pound you weigh.

Many people begin increasing their protein intake immediately upon beginning a program to build muscle which is a mistake. Unless there is enough exercise to burn off this increased caloric intake, the likely result is going to be fat production and the wrong sort of weight gain. Instead, you should gradually increase the amount of protein you consume. Every few days, increase the amount a few hundred calories. By doing this, your body will better be able to turn these extra calories into muscle rather than fat.

When you lift, it is OK to fudge a little. If you use more of your body to increase the amount of reps, you improve your workout’s effectiveness. Be careful not to do this to the extreme. Maintain a rep speed that is controlled. Do not compromise on your form when you are doing your reps.

Coming up with a beneficial muscle building workout routine will keep you strong and help to avoid injuries. Although a well-conditioned bodybuilder can handle three strenuous workouts in a week, the best practice for people who are just beginning their muscle building is to stick with two sessions per week.

One deterrent of successful muscle-building can be slow-growing muscle groups. Bodybuilders often use fill sets to correct this problem. A small set that uses the muscle group necessary two to three days after another group was worked will do the trick.

If you are serious about building your muscles, the right advice is priceless in your endeavor. Use all of the tips from this article and you can achieve the level of success you hope to achieve. Stay with it, and do not ever quit.
