    I finally figured out egg fried rice. Two pans: one for the rice and one for the eggs. This allows maximum ova.

    Mon., 2/10. The gym got three more squat racks! This means the Gregarious Ladies Of Lifting can take over their side of the gym, while my favorite rack stays open.

    OHP: 45x..., 95x8, 135x5, 155x3, 170x3,3,3,4. tried a 5minute rest with nearly disasterous results on the second set. 7 minutes did the trick.

    Fighting for Fives - OHP: set a timer for 10 minutes, do 5 reps every minute until you can't. Ready? Go! 135 x 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 3.5, 2, 2.5. I did every minute until the fifth set, then took 2 minutes. 32 full reps.

    The GLOLs are still draped over various playthings, which makes the Prowler inaccessible.

    Stairbastard: 5 minutes 13 Floors
    Treadmill: Max Incline, 10 minutes 0.28 miles. I now understand why people insist on cellphones and WiFi in the gym. This is the most boring thing imaginable. If it wasn't for the boxing practice going on, I literally. Would. Have. Died.


    Fish Curry! We got an Instant Pot, so everything we eat now has thick broth in it.

    starting strength coach development program
    Tues., 2/11. 216#. The tides have shifted, and everybody's using the old squat racks for rows(!?). Now is the time for the new racks. They're Sorinex XL Series Power Racks, very nice.

    SQ: 45x... - ooo, did I mention they got four brand-new Ohio Power Bars? Verrrry nice. 135x5, 225x5, 315x2, 355x2,2,2,2. These racks are narrower than I'm used to. Took a bit of skin off my pinky reracking the second set. Also, the J-Hook lining material causes the bar to bounce, which is wierd. Weird? Wierd.

    Verdict: not bad, just watch yourself.


    Wife made some kind of pasta with sausage cream artichoke sauce. Phenomonal.
