Thats just the way it is

Here is Agnes pulling 135×5. It’s painfully easy. One day she will be deadlifting well over 300. I just started to do bigger jumps for her because each week is definitely NOT challenge. I don’t want her to jump too high though because I want her to progress up at an even pace. She also has no concept of being aggressive during lifting so I want that to develop as well.

Burnt my fucking feet at the beach on Saturday. Real fucking cool. Thought I was a Tommy Tough Guy and tried to walk to the beach without shoes. Hot black pavement > my bare skin. Got some blistering. I’ll be killing myself if you need me. Shotgun to the dick (name that movie).

Press went exceedingly well today. Hit a PR of 255×3. I was just going for a double, but the rebound was so good and felt so easy I went for another. Honestly I could have gotten four. I didn’t video it. I had a song playing to amp me up over the loud speakers but I didn’t time it right. I was getting cold so I just put on my headphones and went after it.

In work news, the two bar staffs are in a picture battle as of yesterday. This was the one that started it. If you have any ideas please let me know. I want our bar to win. We are gonna print out the picture of the winning team.

Update: The link below is 540×2. Apparently I can’t embed anymore. I’ll have to look into that (Tell Justin).

Saw that last night. Had to take a picture.

Training is well. Benched 390×2 today. Much better bench day than two weeks ago. Still having issues with my shoulder. I realized since the left one is fudged up I tend to have lateral movement left to compensate. Trying to fix it during the warm-ups, but it shows during the work-sets.

I saw Lawless btw. It was real fucking sweet. Tom Hardy is becoming one of my favorite actors. I never put two and two together, but he was Shinzon in Star Trek: Nemesis. Didn’t realize it until I watched it again. Yes I grew up watching Star Trek: The Next Generation. My dad was real big into it. It’s weird how (my dad) someone can be a fucking badass and then watch nerdy shit like that.

Just cause . . .

Did have to work this past weekend, well not on Saturday, so I feel a bit more rested. It would be tight if all I had to do everyday was to lift and eat. Only if. I really want to get into Muay Thai (SP?) and back into Jiujitsu. I kinda crave more physicality out of my training and I want a thick neck. I think down the road when I leave Statesboro here in a bit I am going to find a place to do that. Here is my Press from today. Felt good. I am getting some consistent neck soreness on my left side. Gotta do some trap mashing, maybe that will clear it up.

Apparently I can’t fucking embed it. Every time I do then click update on the blog it just deletes the code. Here is the link to the video.

Today (9/11/12) felt good even though I had about 4 hours of sleep. Dipshit neighbors were riding their mini-bike around real late last night. Had to go out there ask them to stop. They were looking for trouble so I just called the cops. Kept me up. Surprisingly easy pull though today. Was consistent all throughout todays session.

Taking an applied sports physiology class and our chapter was supplements. Probably gonna start taking more shit here soon. Maybe some pre and post workout to try to enhance my lifting. My teacher is HUGE on creatine. She showed us a bunch of studies on it and it was pretty compelling. Might give it a shot here soon. Actually drank coffee before I lifted due to the effects of caffeine. It’s not the best way to get it because its not direct caffeine, but it pushed back my point of fatigue on volume day. It was nice. Might start doing that more often.

More work?

I had to work Friday, Saturday, and be the DD for the other bars employee party on Sunday. All three nights staying up past 4 AM. My body doesn’t know what to do right now. I slept well last night. So it’s all good for right now. O wait. I have to fucking work tonight too. FML. My bench was shit yesterday. Roughed out 395 for a single. Did a drop set with 365×3. That was easy, but I am still upset. Now that I am rotating my bench and press I am gonna have to wait til next week for redemption. If work keeps hindering my lifting like this I am gonna have to request less days or freakin quit. AND I’m getting a fucking hangnail. AND my neck has been bothering me for three days now. WTF. I won’t be posting that much this week so I am sorry for that. My days are just zooming by so I don’t have much time.

At least we got one cool pic out of Sunday
