well, to warm up, just do maybe 5 minutes on a bike, and then i do 1-2 sets each of pulldowns, bench press, and squat, with about half of the weight i would use for a real set. then i do a few stretches in between sets while i'm catching my breath. stretching itself isn't the same as warming up. warming up is to prevent injuries, and stretching is what you do if your range of motion isn't sufficient.

for breathing, main thing is don't hold your breath (this can slightly increase amount you can lift, but also give you an aneurism...), breath in or in and out both on the part of the lift where the weight is going down (eccentric, or where muscle is lengthening), then when pushing breath out through the movement.

also, i think using nicotine patch/lozenge would be good, even if you don't do anything to try to quit. it would probably make it easier to reduce how many smokes you take each day, without doing anything to cause withdrawal.

also i don't think theres any reason that MAOIs and arbs/ACEi are not to be taken together. yes avapro is one. beta-blocker can cause soem people to be depressed. also probably cause more orthostatic hypotension problems.

yeah i think meditation work could help a lot with the kind of anxiety you notice. i don't really have any good links handy, i read a few books, which doesn't really help on the internet....

with the nutritionist, tell her you do well on protein diet, but try to figure out a version that is more sustainable. probably some lean meats/fish and nuts would be important, and some vegetables of course. probably with the surgery, getting grains or beans and fibre isn't really the best idea. and working out some meals so theres variety and something you can stick to easier, when you hit times like autumn .

you're a very affable guy
