Entry #749

ME upper

Overhead press:
5x5 95, 135, 165, 185, 200 lbs.
1x4 215 lbs.
> I probably could have hit the last rep, but I stopped short of straining too fiercely in consideration of my nape. Good improvement, nonetheless, but an even 5 is tantalizing.

Cable pressdowns:
4x12 Entire stack
> Extremely explosive. It's practically speed work.

Lateral raises:
3x8 50 lb. dumbbells

Bent-over barbell rows:
3x8 215 lbs.

Pull-ups and ab work at the track.

I'm not as strong as I could be right now because I'm doing a ton of conditioning and cardio, but it's honestly a sacrifice I'm embracing. I love to run, or I would if love wasn't for weaklings.

Entry #748

I've hardly been spending any time on the computer because of the heat. My laptop is eight years old, now, and any subtle rise in temperature is enough to send the fans into overdrive, slowing down the entire system. I've just been fed up with it. If need be, though, I can start posting from my Playstation 3.

I've been doing a lot of delt work, lately, to prepare for overhead pressing next week. I'm also starting up squats again. My nape is completely healed.

On Wednesday, after speed front squats, I tried glute-ham raises for the first time. I've found a new love in my life, or I would have if love wasn't for weaklings. Mere bodyweight was killer on my hamstrings.

No updates for awhile. I got pissed after this and haven't looked back: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIrl1ahu4ss

ME tomorrow. It's payback time.
