Entry #520

I'm owed an $85.00 refund from an incorrect payment charge by my school. With the money, I ordered:

War As I Knew It by General Patton
On Boxing by Joyce Carol Oates
Jack Dempsey: The Manassa Mauler by Randy Roberts
Science and Practice of Strength Training by Vladimir M. Zatsiorsky

Practical Programming for Strength Training by Mark Rippetoe and Lon Kilgore
Supertraining by Mel Siff

Brain food.

I abstained from training today, and tomorrow will likely follow suit. Monday must be met with full potential. Whether soreness is as much a factor this week as it was the last will be interesting to note. The reason for so much emphasis towards Monday is to ensure at least one day of the week consisting of maximum applied effort. Wednesday and Friday can coexist with cardiovascular and fight training endeavors to whatever degree in performance is sacrificed, with the goal being to diminish the effect of ongoing fatigue week by week while increasing lift numbers.


  1. You are set. My school library is running out of books on strength training and nutrition.

  2. In school? Everything, right now.

    I have a quick question (I thought it would be easier to address you on your blog).  There's a MAS convention I have to go to for the next weekend.  The thing is, they only serve at the crappy breakfast/lunch/dinner times.  I was wondering if I should make a whole bunch of homemade protein bars to take with me.  Would it be ok if I ate two a day?
    Thank god they have a gym.  I just pray they have a squat rack, or any free weights for that matter...

  4. That's good thinking. Shakes and bars will fill the gaps. Two a day in addition to the standard food times should be fine.
