Shoulda done more curls today.

At the CrossFit gym I snatched up to 100k and c+jed 115k, missed a 122k jerk twice. Pulls all felt easy, I think with a better split I should be hitting some better jerks soon.

Then I went to a boba tea shoppe (while still wearing soffe shorts. I was out in public with the shorts from 11am to 9pm) and there was a too cute Vietnamese girl wearing glasses behind the counter. This is a haiku I wrote about our interaction:

She speaks softly. I
lean towards her just to be
closer, not to hear.

I went home and mobbed, then drove to Denton to train with Saul, but first I stopped by a Thai place in Denton – which was really fucking good – but it was kind of a semi-fancy place and so I looked like a real pile of shit sitting there in a sweaty hipster tee and soffe shorts.

I trained with Saul and banged out some high-bar squats at 340lbs for 10, 7, and 7, then finished up with 365lbs x 5. I also clean-and-pressed up to an intuitive triple, hit 160lbs dead-stop, then did barbell bent over rows and cheat curls. I was gonna go ring with Saul and blast my bis with some ring pull ups but it had gotten kinda late so I went home to cook and get to bed early for work.

I heard Saul laugh and I turned and he pointed out an obese guy struggling to do partial dips with all of the assistance on the assisted dip machine. I was laughing because Saul was like, legit laughing at this fucking guy, like 80s movie bad guy bully “look at this loser” laughing, but Saul said, “He’s an adult male who is too fat to be doing dips, and he got that fat in the first place,” and I couldn’t really argue with that. It reminded me of when Mariah was real upset one day because she was reading about the Fat Acceptance Movement and was reading some virgin’s blog about accepting that she was a fat fucking piece of shit and how she claimed to enjoy life as an obese fuck face. It was a pretty good blog, I’m surprised I didn’t bookmark it.

We also spent time making fun of these WABDL old fucks who weren’t very strong and squatting to a bench that was above parallel, and two guys who were clearly on anabolics of some kind.

I just want to add that Saul’s experimenting this week by doing the Herculean Weightlifting total every training day, and he trains every day. So that is working up to a 1rm (and occasionally doing more singles for volume) in the clean-and-press, deadlift, and cheat curl every day – if he had bumpers he’d be doing the snatch and c+j with those. You guys would like Saul.

Watching that video definitely gave me a bad case of yellow fever. Are all Asian girls trained from birth in the art of being fucking adorable?

They’re not being adorable, Jake, those are pathetically well-rehearsed mannerisms derived from societal cliches, if you think that’s cute you’re a jelly-dicked virgin Mormon.

we’re more or less tied bro. i’m at 230+280 – with clean miss jerk at 290. i know you’re good for more, and so am i.

I’ll be checking out a gym 20mins away with oly bars and bumpers and a wider range of hours than the CF gym so if we end up training there regularly I should hopefully have more opportunity to sn. and c+j and hopefully get real fucking jacked.

I left my fb logged in at Saul and Becky’s, look what Becky did:

That’s real fucking good, Becky. I should note that I haven’t spoken to two of the people who responded in a real long time, so their first interaction with me in a couple years is making suggestions for what kind of tramp stamp to get and asking if I was sticking my fucking dick in a penis pump. So that’s real fucking good, Becky.

  1. It actually was my first time curling this week.

    You should probably not call it a total though since the lifts aren’t added together. It’s more of a herculean product or more literally herculean geometric mean. Since I haven’t bothered to multiply my daily max press and deadlift I’m just going for 1rms.

    The clean and press + deadlift only variant is just known as “strength-lifting”. And the same semantics about total vs product apply.

  2. Which Thai place? My woman lives in Plano, we’ve been to a couple Thai spots in Denton.

  3. Some of those black-out marks look like dicks

  4. So is Saul taking over the BFFF(ffffff) spot in your heart where Lascek once resided?

  5. Yeah well you know what, societal clichés on women make my dick hard, so fuck you.

  6. laughing at fat ppl in the gym? come on bro thats kinda mean. lol

    • I laugh at fat people inside and outside of the gym.

      • uh…ok. did u get picked on by fat ppl a lot back in high school? still trying to snatch 135 pounds? lol

        • I don’t like fat people so that means I can’t snatch 135? A+ logic, bro.

          Most of the laughing I do at fat people is because they don’t fucking care to change, they’re rather just be a circus act out in public.

          When I see 350lb women buying frozen juice mix by the case BY THE FUCKING CASE, they fucking deserved to laughed at. Do they not know about water?

    • i agree, i was pretty neutral about it, it was saul genuinely laughing at this guy that made me lol

    • It was a fucking dip, girls can do them and he was using negative 200lbs of assistance. I do them with 200 added pounds of resistance AND I’m not a fat. I shouldn’t laugh?

      • lol my point is as “lifters” we shouldn’t laugh at other ppl’s problems etc etc i mean most fat ppl prob aren’t very happy about being fat. the same can go with REAL oly lifters laughing at you because your max deadlift is 450 at 185 pounds.

        • o my apologies ur max deadlift is 475 as stated below. good day.

          • And my bw is 177 lately. REAL oly lifters tend to bug the crap out of me. But if that’s what they think I’d agree I need a higher deadlift.

            And obese guy doing -200lb dips needs a paleo diet, not a machine that lets him write down on a sheet of paper he got three sets of ten on dips that day…

          • lol stop all this paleo diet shizz…i don’t know what is your definition of real weightlifters, but as far as I’m concerned american weightlifting is way too underdeveloped to even be in the discussion.

  7. Kill Becky with your traps.

  8. “some virgin’s blog about accepting that she was a fat fucking piece of shit and how she claimed to enjoy life as an obese fuck face. It was a pretty good blog, I’m surprised I didn’t bookmark it.”

    Holy fucking shit…

  9. Have you checked out Innervated Systems Gym in Carrollton? I just joined last week. They have a platform and bumpers and lots of fun stuff. Their website sucks and they don’t come up in searches for gyms so it took me forever to discover it.

    • We are going there tomorrow evening. My free week at Brickhouse Gym has ended. Pressing daily was a success I did up to 210 twice, 215 twice. With most of those toward the end of the 7 days. Deadlifting daily was less good, I did 425 twice, 415 three times. My all time bests are 216&475. In the HWL meet last week I did 216&440 on 3 weeks hiatus from lifting. I consider the every day deadlift maxing to be a failure as my best 5RM is 420 and I used to do 5rms every 10 days and this barely exceeded that frequency and intensity plus made squatting appreciable weight a real chore.

      • I haven’t been there in the evening, but there are several pretty strong people there in the morning in between all of the personal trainers doing nonsense with their clients and taking up the olympic lifting platform with KB swings. Also the price is awesome.

        • They should just do the KB swings on the fake red grass. That said a platform’s just for safety and the objectivity that you can’t count a snatch you had to run 10 feet after to save.

  10. hey brent do you plan on competing officially in olympic weightlifting? usa needs more guys in the lower weight classes (69’s, 77’s, )

  11. HEY BK. How much proteinz and cals is there in 1 Pound of Korean Kalbi short ribs (king cut)??? I bought 10 pounds pre marinated @ at the korean grocery store but it doesn’t say 😡 . They are really thin cut though and kinda long (like AC’s cawk no homo). And what is your name on the forums?????????????????????

  12. Hi there, I would prefer to subscribe for this website to obtain newest updates,accordingly where can i do it amuse help.
