Use it freely. Glad you got a chuckle out of it. Just goes to show, people like you and me, we can turn it on, we can turn it off. We smash and smash and smash and stop when we feel like it.

Tuesday, 2/1/11

I found my flippin' notebook. It was right where I left it...at the gym. Funny thing is, I had someone look in the lost and found last Friday and it wasn't there. Tonight I walked past the towel desk on the way in, and there it was. Name and phone number is now on the outside front cover.

Squat
45x5
125x5
140x5
160x5x2

OHP
20x5
45x5
75x5x5

Deadlift
135x5
190x5
220x5
250x5 - had to switch to mixed grip on last 2 reps
285x5 - ***I'm 30 pounds away from my tested 1Rm of a year ago, and 50 pounds away from where I got derailed last June. Thngs are coming back.

***edit*** I realized I made an error. I meant to say that I was 30 pounds away from my tested 5RM, which I had since smashed. I'm still a ways away from my tested 1RM. Sorry for the error. Let the record stand corrected. -- big valsalva (2/2/11)

Treadmill - 19:49 -- 1.81 miles (ran 1.5 miles in 14.49) - realized that i probably shouldn't attempt to run on deadlift night. Myback was just killing me.

That's exceptional. You will knock out that 30 pounds in no time.

Now, what's going on with this Mr. Miyagi smash on, smash off thing?

Thank you, big_swede. I'm starting to feel it again. Soon you and I can sit down with a cup of grog and retell our feats of strength. Just like our ancestors after battle.

Thank you, Carl. I want it now, but there is no glory in shortcuts, only frustration. I will pay my dues and get back to where I belong.

Thank you, bigtim. Solid work to be sure, but it also is a heckuva lot a fun.

I appreciate it, gl. I made a horrible error in my journal entry form Tuesday, 2/1/11. I said that I was 30 pounds from my tested 1RM. I meant to say 30 pounds from my tested 5RM (which I smashed in both weight and reps last June). Nonetheless, I'm still 50 pounds away from where I was repping last summer. Your deads will come back. Oddly enough, they used to be my best lift, but now I get so fatigued. That last set is a bit of a drag. I might need to tinker with the set/rep scheme.
