porkchop Posted November 24, 2005 Author Share Posted November 24, 2005 11/23/2005 Decided to do some light work yesterday just to keep my muscles working. I was trying to film a #3 close with making sure the set got on tape, but things didn't work out all that well.

Glad to close one of my two new #3's. I missed the other one by a sliver and might have gotten it instead of the 2nd single on the hard #3 but I didn't have enough for it after that. Maybe next workout. Good times. Just to clarify, I rate my three #3's easy, medium and hard against each other. That isn't necessarily how others might rate them when compared to the masses of #3's out there, but I don't have anything to compare them to other than my BBGM and they are all harder than it is. pc Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

So I loaded up on carbs and caffiene and well.. the workout went really, really well! I finally shut that stubborned #3 that's harder than my Elite and my BBE2 which is just about as hard! My extensors are yelling at me right now because I upped them from the single Red band to both the Blue and White bands overlapping. They'll feel real good tomorrow. Getting ready for the contest this weekend. With any luck, I won't finish dead last. MMG1 attempt coming up real soon too. Hoping for a good showing there as well.

Without having to deal with that pain, I posted quite a few new PRs. I also started a low carb diet about a week and a half ago (lost 15lbs) but my strength has been sapped. So I loaded up on carbs and caffiene and well.. the workout went really, really well! I finally shut that stubborned #3 that's harder than my Elite and my BBE2 which is just about as hard! My extensors are yelling at me right now because I upped them from the single Red band to both the Blue and White bands overlapping. They'll feel real good tomorrow. Getting ready for the contest this weekend. With any luck, I won't finish dead last. MMG1 attempt coming up real soon too. Hoping for a good showing there as well. That's about all to report. pc Great job, Porkchop. GL on the MMG1. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
