    Thurs., 7/25. Went paddleboarding with friends, ended up racing myself across the lake twice, then laying on the board and drifting back. Got some cramps in the lats & feet, then went for pizza and salad. Very sore today. Feels good.

    Mon., 7/29. 228#. No time today.

    Cleaned presses: 45x..., 75x5, 5, 95x5, 115x5, 135x5,5,5.

    Power Cleans: 135x2.


    Roto chix and veggies.


    Wed., 7/31. 226#. A littel more tiem today.

    OHP: 45x..., 95x8, 135x5, 160x3, 180x1, 190x-, 145x5,5,5.

    Dips: 5,5, +20x3, +40x3, +25x5,5,5. ewgh. too hard. gotta keep the freq. up.

    Hammer Curlz: 20x10, 25x10, 30x8, 25x8, 20x10. no rest.


    pork links with eggs poached in broth.


    Thurs., 8/01. 225.4#.

    Front Sqt (cleaned): 45x..., 135x 5,5.

    DL: 225x5, 315x3, 365x1, 385x1, 405x1, 425x1. fuckyeah. pretty sure that's a training PR. it was ugly, to be sure - L end of the bar was lower, the R traps started burning, and my R buttock 'activated' with extreme prejudice.

    Rows: 225x3,3,3,3,3,8. first five sets were all one breath, with the plates barely touching the floor at bottom, last set was rest-pause.

    Face Pulls: all the rope grips were being used, so I found the fat grip V-bar and put it on the low row - 30x10, 50x10,10,10,10,10,10,10. chasing that bicep pump.


    Wacky Pork, in honor of my now-defunct favorite noodle place.

    Default Wacky Pork

    you will need:

    1. a roasted pork shoulder, just to the point where it's ready to be shredded for carnitas. rip it into bite sized hunks and add about 12 oz. of orange juice per four pounds of pork, and some kind of spicy jelly (peach habanero beer jelly). bring to a simmer.

    2. get some noodles. Wife likes bean thread noodles. Very easy, just pour hot water over them and soak for a few minutes, strain.

    3. fry up some veggies. a mix of broccoli and greens works very well.

    put your noodles in the bowl
    and you add some olive ol
    get the veggies in nex
    and the pork makes the res
    stab it with a fork
    and you call it Wacky Pork

    word.

    Sat., 8/03. 224.4#. Dog depression hit pretty hard today. Dehydrated, too. Went to the gym anyway:

    SQ: 45..., 135x8, 225x5, 285x5,5,5,5,5.
    -supersetted-
    Dips: 8, +25x5, +35x3, +50x5,5,5. these got ugly, but so what?

    wife is finishing up, so I see the standing calf raise machine is already loaded -

    Standing Calf Raises: 100x5,5,5,5,5. Start stretched out at the bottom, explode up, slow eccentric. Just enough to make me sore, but not enough to cripple myself.


    country style pork ribs, boiled with onions, peppercorns & bay leaves, then dry-rubbed with brown sugar, paprika, garlic, and broiled (it was raining). potato salad, Mexican-style corn on the cob, slaw, watermelon salad. Good friends, good drinks, good times.

    Tues., 8/06. 225#.

    OHP: 45x..., 95x5, 135x5, 155x3, 170x5,5,5,5,5.
    set 1 - all good.
    set 2 - called myself for bending knees on rep 4.
    set 3 - shaking like a leaf, so increased rest time to 10 min.
    set 4 - all good.
    set 5 - just a little knee bend on rep 5.
    So, obviously deload to 135 and work on form.

    -superset-
    Cable Rows: 150x5, 195x5,5,5,5, 210x5,5,12. it's like Doritos for my back.


    Leftover meat in leftover red sauce with broccoli and shiritaki noodles. OH, the fiber.
    Watched the first episode of The Boys. Pretty dark, and I love Commander Riker and the Adventurous Babysitter, so this might be good.

    Nice work Erok, the food sounds good too.
    Going to check out the boys this weekend.
    I did see Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and thought it was great.

    Thanks, Jerry. Yeah, that movie looks really good to me. We may or may not wait till it comes to the 'cheap seats' cinema.

    Hey, there's a block of wood on the floor next to those 45's. I'll hold one in each hand and try
    Farmer's Calf Raises: 45x3. yeah, that doesn't work very well.

    Cybex Calf Raises: 90x5,5,5. mostly just stretching.


    drinks, meat, general debauchery.


    Sat, 8/10. Wife is getting her hair did, so I've got some time to kill.

    Bench: 45x..., 95x10, 135x5, 160x5, 180x3,3,3,3,10. well, okay then, guess that's still a thing.
    -superset-
    Face Pulls: 30x15,15,15,15,15.

    LTE: 65x10, 10, 15
    Curls: 65x10, 10, 15. okay, so that wasn't very exciting.

    Scroll on my phone while plodding on the treadmill for 42 minutes. Don't get excited, I only went 0.83 miles at a incline of 7.

    Hair is did! I take her out to a nice dinner to show her off. Calamari, Beef Stroganoff.
    To save money, we finish The Boys at home. Holy damn, it's so dark. I love it.

    Tues., 8/13. 225#.

    GHR: 10, 10,
    Ab Wheel: 10, 10. Keep putting it in the logbook, and eventually, I'll do it.

    OHP: 45x..., 95x8, 135x5, 155x5, 175x5,5,4,4,4. Actually better than expected. Really using the stretch reflux on these, and getting some decent layback, and some not-so-decent layback. Knees were a little, shall we say, elastic at times?
    -superset-
    Cable Row: 165x5, 195x5,5,5, 210x5,5,5,10.


    Noodles with butter sauce & scrambled eggs.

    Thurs., 8/15. 223.6#.

    SQ: 45x..., 135x8, 225x5, 295x5,5,5,5,5. depth was good on all of these, not sure about my brain, though. Why am I doing this?
    -superset-
    Dips: 5, +25x5, +40x3, +55x5,5,5. Want to say I felt like a badass, but I was kinda dreading these. Had to get through it, though.


    Pickle juice, coconut water.

    Liver and Onions & Mushrooms. Used some leftover dry rub and a good dose of rum to make an awesome pan sauce. Barely escaped with both my eyebrows.

    Watermelon!
