Entry #839

Currently I'm without internet access save for my phone (which is pretty bitching, fortunately) and the occasional late night ravaging at Starbucks and other wi-fi enabled locations with my laptop. Right now I'm posting this from my Droid X. Lifting is going great. I'm making fast gains on Madcow's 5x5 (full-body splits are a novelty to me) and recouping what I lost. Thoughts are going to be pretty scattered since I'm typing this in between sets at the gym.

Something I just decided two minutes ago: I can't keep ascending this much on bent-over rows and expect to remain injury-free. Just now I did 265 for 4 reps. I never attain muscle failure; rather, I noticed I was using too much lower back so I terminated the set short of 5. I feel smart about it. I plan on going slowly and steadily until I hit 275, ,)possibly 315 if I get a belt, for 5 before switching to safer weighted pull-ups.

Bench tonight was 275 for 4 (hard, barely got it) and squat was 315 for 5 (very easy, could have done more). I'm up to about 209 from 205 last week.


  1. So what do you do all day now that you don't have internet?

  2. Ah, been a while since I visited this planet. I see your power level has decreased significantly. I must say, I'm a bit disappointed, I expected more from a saiyan of your level.
