Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride

This past week I lifted on Monday and Wednesday but just some easy work on squats, bench, and some accessories. My only grip work was the blockweight feats which was more than enough. 

Fortunately I was able to make it to the Last Gripmas yesterday. Although I arrived late and wasn’t able to compete, it was really good to be there.

Training related Gripmas details

Andrew’s Axle - up to 302x1, 308 x Fail - training is working but there is lots of work to do.

Inch dumbbell medley - 150 x fail (repeatedly) - walked upstairs and lifted Gracie(146) easily multiple times - I need more accurate training here. I got a bunch of tips from Mr. Pantke and was informed on the the details of the “Fat Bastardized Thickbar Program”*.

I also missed multiple attempts on the Heller blob and the Mannanuff, although  I hadn’t done any specific preparation to attempt either.

Merry Gripmas everyone!!!

So I would like to do a series of grip equipment review videos. Since I am not an elite grip athlete and no one is going to learn anything about grip by watching me lift, this might be my best way to

My kids immediately took off with my half-2 blob and I don't know where it is.  Probably behind the couch or under someones bed, or they fed it to the dog.  Such a cool and thoughtful grip item.

Deadlifts look smooth and speedy! Won't be long before you're setting new lifetime PRs!

Tues.

i spent the day in the car or sitting on a couch. These are like the worst possible things for me to do health wise. Happy Holidays everyone!

Thurs.

sq 240x10, dead 355x5, Bp 190x10

my hands were fresh(read less beat down) so I endeavored at a few blockweight feats. I snagged two. I have one more to get but need to be outside to do so. Fingers crossed for Sunday.

In the bent steel from Brent were several horseshoes bent to various degrees including some SCF UL. I have set these aside so that I can help them complete their journey.

Anytime I send out a package, I almost always include a note. It’s important and as the year draws to an end, I can think of no better closing then to write a few notes. I can only hope that the new year starts well for those who will receive them.

Unfortunately bad days happen. I try to keep upbeat about it as illustrated below.

For clarification, I use that quote all the time at work but I didnt know it was from Elvis. Me: “He really is everywhere!”

If you count the plates in the video, it’s not 140. I think my barbell is bent or bending making the FG deads much easier than they should be.

Regroup.

So I missed a couple log updates but that doesn’t matter now. I will be rehabbing a lower body issue for the near future and will be grip training by feel til it gets all sorted out. It’s nothing serious. Just another set back.

Hadn't seen that video since it first came out!  I saw those guys perform in Washington, D.C. in 1990.  Hole in the wall bar.  Very fun and entertaining!

Just a Anvil Stub lift for the BSS leaderboards. I am hoping to catch the bottom of the list.

So there has been a total lack of workouts for the most part. I feel so limited in what I can do I didn’t do anything at all. I did force myself into the gym one night.

Thurs. 

Deads 135 - 365x2 20 lb. jumps 

        strangely with my laundry list of current ailments, this lift is unaffected...

Bench 135-245x2 20lb. jumps

stublife.

 

I just realized that in a little over a year I will be Masters age. I gotta work on my 40by40 list. Any suggestions?

 

Also I need to get my body weight sorted out for Living Legends so I will be posting my food lists for a good and bad day. Hopefully posting this will help me see a few things. And maybe someone else will notice something I am not.

 

thanks for reading my log and I always appreciate your responses/comments!

Right now I weigh in at 215. However that might be water weight from the hours spent driving. I also anticipate losing several lbs once the weather allows for conditioning again.

 

From looking it over, I can tell right away that I need an afternoon snack added in there.

And before anyone says anything about my caffeine consumption... don’t.

I'll look over this in more detail tomorrow, but a few questions:

1. How much does this represent a typical day? I'm wondering if has station Carmel corn is a regular item Haha.

2. Are the up days training days? Are you intentionally cycling calories?

3. I seem to recall you are gluten free and this log would confirm that. Do you have any other food restrictions?

4. Related to question one, do you meal prep and/or make the same few dishes  over and over?

5. That's a lot of coffee, I hope you have a local roaster you like ;)
