    Fri., 4/12. 226#.

    Front Squat: 45x..., 135x5, 185x4, 225x2, 245x2, 265x2, 285x2, 305x2. Well, that was awesome. I had no business doing the second rep (back rounded), but I was using straps around the bar for grip, so it worked.

    OHP: 45x..., Density block, 10 min: 135x3,3,2,3,3,3,(5min)3,2,2,2,2,(1min)1,1,1,1. that's 32.


    venison peanut stew.


    Sat., 4/13.
    Stones: 125x2, 200x0,0,0, 150x1,0,1. Yeah, I was probably tired from the front squats, that's the ticket.


    smoked beef brisket, pork rib tips.


    Sun., 4/14. pork links & eggs for breakfast.

    Bench: 45x..., ..., 135x5, 155x5, 175x3, 195x3, 215x1, 235x1.

    DB Rows: 50x5,5, 75x5, 85x5, 95x5, 105x5. Fit my straps under my wrist wraps for: 125x5. Wanted to take it further, but ran out of time.

    Should've done some sandbag squats, but the pork burps are an effective barrier to any conditioning.
    CoC: #1 x 1R, 0.975L. Sooo close. Tx5,5.


    More of that lovely brisket, plus some meatballs.

    Thur., 4/18. 225.6#. Well, that was a bad week. Finally caught The Cold. Normally, I'd just take a day or so, then push through it, but this one got in my sinuses, hard. Blech.

    Cable Low Rows: 160x5,5,5,5,5. Just waiting for a rack, I don't actually know what I'm going to do.

    OHP: 45x..., 95x8, 135x5, 150x2, 160x3,3,3. Hey, these felt great! sub-4 minute rests.

    I still don't feel like squatting, though.

    Stairbastard: 15 minutes, 37 Floors, 0.76 miles. Breathed through my nose the whole time, while sweat dripped from my elbows. Smelled like sweet victory.

    Roast pork shoulder over roast sweet potatoes, covered in my new chimmichurri.

    Default Chimmichurri

    Wife said I had to write it down this time:

    5 serranos
    5 jalapenos
    2 bunches cilantro
    2 bunches green onion
    1 bunch mint
    1/4C lime juice
    1 T salt

    Chop all the stuff coarsely and liquefy it in the Cuisinart. Yes, keep the pepper seeds. This made 1 1/2 pints. The mint really makes it special.

    Tues., 4/23. 225#.

    Log Press, in the rack: 90x12, 12, 115x3.
    Log C&P, on the platform: 135x1, 155x1, 175x2, 90 x 8, 10, 8, 10, 8.

    Seated Rows: 165x5,5, 180x5,5,5,5.

    Finally made my own sandbag. Found six sturdy cylindrical satchels on sale, each holds about 25# of play sand. The duffell I have fits 3 of them. It works okay for now. Gonna need a bigger bag.

    Ham and taters.

    Wed., 4/24. I have a new toy! Made it myself. Yeah, it's the sandbag, and I already told you about it, but today I get to play with it!

    floor to shoulder - did a bunch of those.
    lap to chest (using handles) - did some of those.
    floor to chest (stone style) - did some of those.

    Well, I'm out of breath, and the nylon is chafing my arms. Success!


    Pulled chicken sandwiches - chimmichurri, blue cheese dip, 1000 island dressing, cucumbers. Oven-roasted potatoes with sour cream.

    Thurs., 4/25. 226.6#

    F Squat: 45x..., 135x5-paused, 2xEMOM: 185x2,2,2,2,2,2.

    Power Clean: 45 x whoah - too light, doesn't work that way.
    111 (silly 15 kilo plates)x3,3-that's better.
    131 x 2,2-banged my chin - good thing my mouth was shut.
    141 x 2 - what's that I'm feeling? is that... confidence?
    151 x 2,2,2,2,2-that's more like it. Getting the bar to bounce off my throat onto my delts. Real power move. I make funny noises when I do the jump.

    Sandbag: The big one. Picks to lap in 60 sec: 10. Lap to chest: 10 in 36 seconds before I give out. I'm also counting the pick and front carry to and from the Fortress of Solitude.


    The sick, weak, old dog we come home to is a welcome distraction from the bruises on my clavicles.

    Pizza, eggs, whey shake, peanut butter sandwich.

    Sat., 4/27 - finally finished the wood trim in the kitchen. Now, on to plaster work...

    Sun., 4/28. 226.6#. Just messing around today.

    Stones: 175x1,1,1, 225x0,0.

    Log: 115x5,5,5,5,5.

    DL lockout holds, 2" ROM: 405x1,1-hook grip, 455x1,1,1,1,1 alternating hook and straps. These are more trap stretches than anything else. Feels good.


    Super beefy mac. later: popcorn, chicken crust pizza.

    Tues., 5/07. 226#. I give up. There's no way I'm ready for comp. Damn dog. Yes, I'm blaming the dog.

    OHP: 45x..., ..., 95 x 8, 135 x 3, 155 x 3, 175 x 1,0,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1. Played with rest times; 3 minutes seems perfect.
    Alpha Trainer saw me do rep #7, said I was getting really strong at pressing. I hemmed, blurting "well, I used to be stronger, I finally hit 200 this winter, blah, blah, blah..." when I should have JUsT TAkEN TEh fUCKInG COMpLIMeNT. Jeez Louise.

    Anyway, strip the bar down to 110 and set a timer for ten minutes: 110x10,10,4,4,4,4,3,2,1,1. that's 43 reps, 28 in the first 5 minutes, 4 in the last minute. The 4 rep sets were all the same - first 3 reps were golden, the 4th struggled to lockout. Maybe if I do this again, I'll just do sets of 4 across.


    Chicken cheese zucchini casserole. Nomz.
