Entry #477

I began in the afternoon with hitting the heavy bag. I've still no access to my camera. My legs are sore enough that I had difficulty getting good traction, so my hooks didn't have quite as much power leaned into them as usual. The bag stand didn't even tip over today. I'll get him next time.

Clean and jerk:
6 X 3     135 lbs.
> Do not let the back waver under pressure. Keep tight. More from laxity than any actual fatigue.

4 X 8     50 lb. dumbbells
> Mild tendonitis feeling on the first set. Warm-up more.

5 X 8    

Dumbbell shrugs:
1 X 10   95 lb. dumbbells
1 X 12   115 lb. dumbbells
1 X 12   95 lb. dumbbells
> A girl and her dad came right in front of me and started doing endless sets of lat raises while chatting. They were blocking the big 115's, and I was about to leave anyways, so I just went back to the 95's, rather than ask them to move and then attemp to stomp past and through the tiny space back to my spot with 115 lbs. in each hand. Neither weight posed much challenge.


  1. That was very generous of you to let them live.  Are you feeling ok?

  2. Whoa, not so fast. Resistance training and maiming should be separated by at least six hours to avoid catabolism, and I didn't write what happened later on.

  3. One should practice violence with some moderation. Be careful you don't overdo it, now.
