It’s fine.

“Hey Brent, how was your Thanksgiving?”

Let me just say that my dad isn’t opposed to eating at the same restaurant for BOTH lunch and dinner in the same day. Let me also say that he has no problem with asking the waiter to take multiple family pictures on BOTH occasions. Or asking the yogurt servers in the place next door for MORE family pictures. It was fine though.

Over the past couple of days I’ve:

– back squat 415lbs x 3
– snatched up to 235lbs
– c+jed 265lbs, cleaned 275lbs
– snatch-grip DL 355lbs x 5
– benched 270lbs x 3
– back squat 390lbs x 5
– weighted ring dips with +85lbs x 2

Benching 270lbs x 3 would be a lifetime PR. Another 5lbs and I’ll be benching high school football team warm up sets. It’s fine. The ring dips were pretty hard at +85lbs. Going to 85lbs was pretty lame, I used a 35lbs bumper and two 25lbs plates to get to it as every other permutation was not that great. It will be nice to get to an even 90lbs since I can just use the two 45lbs for that.

Rolled glutes and high hamstrings with a lacrosse ball, squatting feels pretty good the past couple days. Thom noted that I could have done a better job with knees out though.

wait Brent you had a gf before? Just seemed like you made it out to be you were single and lonely all your life. Looks like you’re doing a lot better than many guys out there…

I’ve had a couple gfs/relationships before. It’s hard to consider that they are relevant though. BRB high school doesn’t count. BRB one girl messed around with me and was emotionally dependent and whatnot but made it a point to clarify I was not her BF (for the entirety of the six months we were involved). BRB last gf was long-distance i.e. it may as well have been fucking imaginary. Hey Brent how did you spend time with your long-distance girlfriend when you weren’t visiting each other oh just awkward phone sex and conversations about how our day went. It’s fine.

i love that you friend zoned me before i had the chance to friend zone you. so you got to see what it’s like being on the other side of the equation. how does it feel to be the zone creator? how does it feel to interact with me, as a lady, and not get your tighty whities all in a bunch? how does it feel to not have to worry that you’ll spend the rest of your day walking around with crust in your shorts cuz you got nervous and accidentally squirted?

Honestly? Honestly? HONESTLY? – I feel like a fucking human being for once. BRB don’t have to worry about feelings BRB can talk to a girl without huge spikes in cortisol BRB not going home and staring at the wall wondering why she doesn’t like me trying not to cry while listening to Radiohead. Thanks for being my friend Becky.

  1. So um,
    Did you send your long distance girlfriends pics of needle-laden containers?

    How much did they affect your pea intake?

  2. whoa whoa whoa am i taking on some sort of role as a whore on your blog, brent?

  3. so what exactly happened that led to your father eating at the same restaurant twice in one day? i’m intrigued.

    • nothing happened? we ate at Omi grill in Carrollton for lunch, drove all over The Colony, Frisco, Plano, back to Carrollton, they went grocery shopping at H-Mart, then we had dinner at Omi grill. there is one other Korean grill and several Korean restaurants in the same plaza. it’s fine.

  4. Are you going to post the pictures?

  5. DUDE please post one pic. Hahahahahahahah

  6. Saul’s pretty jacked. Seems like becky is punching above her weight class. It usually doesn’t happen that way.

  7. really lonely guy

    wow BRENT I did not know your love life was so colorful. I guess I’ll dig a hole and cry in it by myself now.

  8. wtf is going on in this thread?

  9. Mildly amused that this entire blog basically consists of males insulting each other in a jokey form of banter, then one guy makes a fairly innocent comment about a girl and suddenly THAT turns nasty. Ah well…

    Brent, how does it feel to regularly get more comments than the main page now? I love Justin’s page, but you do seem to attract some entertaining assholes to your comments section.

  10. Dear Brent,

    I’m waiting at ICN airport again. My flight isn’t for a good while, I’m thinking about asking random Koreans what their APM is. This one body builder korean bro, just sat down in front of me and his shirt is TIGHT. I don’t think tight shirts are comfortable, let alone for a long flight? I wonder if this bro is gonna go shirtless the entire flight? I dunno I’m rambling at this point so I’m just gonna hit submit and report back later.

    Yours Truly,


  11. 5 star thread.
    will print out and read to grandchildren.

  12. Being a broadcast professional, I know my standards for visual media are usually higher than most, but holy fuck rotate the video if you’re going to post it.
    I mean, we live in an age where the sum of all human information is at your fingertips, so even if Youtube didn’t have a BUILT IN video editor, you could, within seconds, figure out how to rotate the video.

    lol umad?

  13. I agree with JC that this blog sure has a lot of grade A organic assholes commenting on it. on the other hand, those squats look pretty good. HIGH BAR/LOW BAR hybrid? sure looked like it brent. put another 100 pounds on your squat triple and gain about 6-10 pounds of muscle on your lower body and you might just bring some hope for the USA weighlifting team in the 77 kg class

  14. Brent, why you no share shirtless pic with us?
    You share shirtless pic with
    ❓ ❓ ❓ ❓ ❓

  15. Do you normally squat without a belt? Or were you trying to show off abdoms through the Misc shirt?
