    BW - 192? (didn't weigh until after breakfast)

    Bread and butter.

    Squat:

    295 x 5, 315 x 5 x 3 @8, 7, 7

    Press:

    155 x 5 x 3 @8-8.5

    Deadlift:

    385 x 5 x 3 @8, 7, 7

    CGBP:

    135 x 6, 185 x 6, 225 x 6 x 3

    Notes:

    Felt pretty good. Going to take a smart(er) approach to get my squat back to PR territory, then transition into some kind of 8 week meet prep. Numbers are important (still want a 500 squat, 365 bench, 315 power clean, 275 press, and 600 deadlift) but I don't really know if I'll get them this year and, besides that, right now I need to focus on consistency.

    Indeed. The stairs to get out of my current place are narrow and steep. It's going to be a fun weekend! Followed by a few weeks of "where the fuck did I put that?!" And, "Why do we still have this?" I have to keep reminding myself that it is a MUCH better place, and I am genuinely looking forward to being there; it's just the GETTING there part that's...interesting. It's a great opportunity to practice my Stoicism.

    True for all sorts of unpleasant situations!

    I think a lot of stoicism can be broken down to:
    (1) stop complaining. (It's worse than useless. Much worse.)
    (2) take charge of the situation to the extent you can
    (3) accomplish your goal and learn from the experience
    (4) find the pleasure you can in the suffering
    (5) know that this moment is just a moment in your life, this moment is not your life.


    I meant to write one sentence that would be particular to your experience. Instead I rambled.

    Good luck with the move!

    I would categorise it as:

    It's a shitty job, but you gotta do it if you're moody or cheery, and the only control you have over it is your mind state that you bring?

    Alternatively

    Fucking shut up and get it over with, unless you want ms k to have to pick up your slack you fucking dirtbag. You'd better smile too, or she might feel guilty and try to help; you don't want that, do you Mr big boy pants?

    BW - 190

    Box-loaded calf raises x 1,000,000

    ~14,000 steps (shut up, math nerds)

    "Why yes, that does go on the 3rd floor. Boy, it sure looks heavy!"

    Good times.

    Prolly 80-90% of The Stuff has switched venues. Sleeping at the new place tonight in a new bed. Hopefully I don't wake up with a charlie horse, because I definitely did not drink much water today!

    PWO cardio - individual king sized bed carry out of the old apartment and down the stairs. Then some more loaded-box stair carries.
