Entry 799

I'm still alive. I haven't been sitting around like a sedentary weakling, either. Conditioning has been way up, but I've been lifting about once a week at best. Consequently, my strength is way down and I've lost 15 lbs.

Pictures from Friday, doing martial arts in a parking lot:

I lifted today pathetically, doing OH press with 205x1. Jesus. There will be blood.

Entry #798

I've been feeling dreadful for some unknown reason. For the past few days my stomach has been in pain and I haven't been able to eat much, although I force what I can.

For Thanksgiving today and I went out for a run through downtown at night. I give thanks to my Viking ancestors for giving me tree-trunk legs.

Entry #797

I've began supplementing with Animal Flex, even though my wrist has been in no pain as of late. As I was reading the nutritional info, I couldn't help but notice:

"Other ingredients: shark cartilage"

Holy shit. Now I'm sure that's some filler additive that you don't want to find in your pills, but to hell with that. That rules. So with this as my inspiration I designed my own supplement ad in Microsoft Paint (this is 100% free hand, you propagandist dogs).

ME upper

> Holy suckage. I can't tell, though, whether I've lost strength from my extra two days off or if my coordination is out of sync. Next week should prove interesting.

I also did dips today for the supplementary movement, albeit without weight.

My wrist is feeling prime, but I'm still wrapping it and plan on taking Animal when it arrives. I should be able to do bag work by simply omitting left hooks and saving that hand for jabs.

Entry #795

Badass, I managed to do ME yesterday, albeit at what would normally be counted as sub-par, by my standards. Either I've lost some strength (definitely not a good thing at my heaviest body weight yet) or I wasn't able to take full advantage of my grip; either way, I pushed 335x2 for floor press. I think I did 330x3...six months ago, at the earliest. Or maybe I'm really strong on the bench press now and I just haven't been progressing on this lift, separately.

I'm looking at joint supplements to order and I've settled on Animal Flex. We'll see how this turns out.

I really want to hit the heavy bag but my wrist wasn't feeling very good after I did last Sunday, so I have no choice but to back off there.

I'm sore everywhere, so earlier I walked to the gym and spent about 30 minutes stretching and an additional 10 minutes using a foam roller for a self-administered massage. Except I don't do pussy massages. This hurt.

After the girlie stuff I did three rounds on the bag and then tried out the elliptical, which I couldn't do more than four minutes of because my quads were dead.
