I’m mobbing as I type this.

Did the best shoulder mob ever, rolled on external rotators around the humerus again (right side was sore, feels a lot better today), hip flexor stretch, and hip flexion stretch.

Pre-workout food was an 8oz steak, green beans, and Maruchan instant noodles. I’m sure that’s real fucking funny to some of you, get fucked. 12oz water and a java chip frappucino.

Snatched 200lbs+ for 5 singles, 200lbs, 200lbs, 205lbs, 205lbs, and 210lbs. Controlling the weight to the hang was a lot of fun. Felt pretty easy here, I think whenever I’m at the globo gym I’ll hit multiple singles at a medium weight for volume as opposed to pushing for a heavy single, this is probably a little more reasonable.

C+jed up to 265lbs. Pull felt heavy, even at 245lbs.

Front squat 330lbs x 2. I got the point today and called it done here. I’ll throttle back on the low-bar back squat next week and continue pushing the front squat hard.

Deadlifted 375lbs x 3 to the knee, paused, then completed the pull. Two of the reps I pulled double overhand hook, had to alternate grip the third. Repeated attempt at 355lbs x 3, 5 would have been nice but grip was too spent and the back was already tired. Right now the limiting factor for the hook grip is pain, this is the first time I’ve hook gripped challenging deadlifts in a long while. Hopefully I can work on these on lighter pulling days and build a decent hook grip.

Chris and Mike were in town, so I stopped here to meet up with them for Chipotle (burrito with rice, no beans, peppers and onions, chicken), then finished up the rest of my workout at another gym of the same chain, which was:

Rounded-back weighted back extensions, chest supported machine rows, and barbell curls. There was a really pretty girl at the gym with a dude wearing camo shorts – which were not even gym shorts – and he looked like he played a lot of CoD MW2 and posted actively on 4chan. Definitely wanted to kill myself.

I spent most of the night watching YouTubes of Dead Space 1 and 2, this and training were the highlights of my Saturday off, I’m a pretty fucking useless person.
