Entry #824

My overhead number is utterly abysmal. I pressed 210 for a single today. Compare that to 225 x 3 9 months ago:

At this rate I'm going to have to grow 50 mustaches just to be considered tough enough for a breast pump commercial. Progress, this is not.

Of course, I'm only 212 lbs. with much better cardio, so it's not like it's been a linear regression. If my present self were to fight my 240 juggernaut form I would win as is. In fact, I pound-for-pound I'm stronger than I was then, since I basically overhead pressed my bodyweight. And yet, as Mark Rippetoe once succinctly proverbed, "The universe don't give a shit what you weigh. All that counts is what you pick up from the ground."
