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 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.

Choosing to build muscles may have you thinking you will be spending a lot of hard working hours in the gym. However, you don’t just need to workout to get muscle growth. A large portion of muscle building is learning how it works, enabling you to pick effective techniques that can get results in a minimal amount of time. Continue reading to learn some great ideas for building muscle.

If you are going to train to be in a marathon or other event, don’t try to increase muscles as well. Cardio is important in achieving good fitness, but a lot of it could impede your attempts to bulk up through muscle building. If building up muscle is your focus, spend most of your effort on a strength-training routine.

Don’t just depend on supplements. Many – not all – muscle-building workout routines can be helped by dietary supplements. However, they are not intended as a substitute for good nutrition. Just as the name says, they are designed to supplement a good diet. Try to keep your supplements to a minimum.

Take pictures of yourself naked every two days or so. Seeing your reflection in the mirror ever day can mask your progress. Pictures will help you see how much you have accomplished throughout your program.

Remember to included stretches after performing your muscle-building exercises. There are two primary benefits to stretching before you work out. Stretching means you can prevent a lot of the soreness that develops which keeps you away from the gym. Stretching exercises improve the range of motion, and increase the effectiveness of the muscle building exercise.

Resist the urge to quickly power through sets! You will get better results from slowly performing each exercise movement, even when using lighter weights. A general guide to strive for is to expend a total of 20 seconds on each rep.

Set realistic short-term goals. While you may hope to squat 300 pounds just a month after you start working out, this is not a feasible goal, and it’s one that could cause you to injure yourself. After finding your baseline strength, attempt to modestly improve every routine. In many cases, you will find yourself stronger each day, surpassing your short-term goals. This can act as encouragement, helping you to remain positive about your future rate of success.

When you encounter pain during a workout, stop! Muscles and tendons are fragile, and you should never overextend them just to add muscle. If you feel sore, rest for a day in order to gain your strength back.

Eliminate alcohol to increase the effectiveness of your muscle building routines. A single glass of wine or beer every so often is not a deal breaker, but that’s about all. Excess alcohol in not good for the body and it doesn’t help build muscle.

Beginning your workout with warm-up exercises is crucial. This way you will get your blood moving and prepare your muscles for a more intense workout. Taking just a few minutes to warm up can save you weeks of recuperation from injury.

Make sure that you eat some food before and after every workout. A snack that is high in protein and low in sugars or fats will keep your body properly fueled. As you get further into muscle building, you may find it useful to plan your meals even more to optimize your muscle building abilities.

You had probably committed to starting a rigorous bodybuilding routine before you read this article. We hope that you have a much better idea on the things that you could do in order to build muscles as efficient and as quickly as possible. Use these tips to succeed with your goals of muscle building.
