$20,000 on Calling Cards

And I’m speaking Spanish like Don Omar

Yesterday:
Bench: 280 x 3 x 5
Nice and smooth, could have been a bit faster, but no complaints.
W/Slanger: 290 x 11
Real slow lockout on that last one, didn’t have a spotter because everyone in the gym looked like an idiot so I didn’t want to talk to any of them.

Press: 180 x 3 x 5
Would have liked these to be a lot faster. Gonna go for a single at 250 some time soon.

Chins: +90 x 5, 5, 9
Was really fast, mis-gripped the bar on the last set, I might have been able to get 10 if my palms weren’t being pinched.

Neck Curls: 16kg x 3 x 15
Mm.

Today:
Squats: 410 x 3 x 5
These were a fucking prison. They were fast and smooth, but oh my fuck they were hard because I hadn’t ate for 5.5 hours. In fact I’m just sitting down to eat now, 8.5 hours after my last meal. I had to lie down, as my 3rd selfie of the day (Fuck with me doe) displayed.

SLDL + Shrug: 315 x 3 x 5
These were pretty easy I guess, I was paying more attention to the girl with the coke bottle frame speaking Portugese.

Row: 280 x 3 x 5
Kinda tough, whatever.

Put ya Brains on a Contract

Mind ya business

Deadlift: 500 x 0, 1
Bar came way out of the groove on the first attempt, so I tried again, but I just didn’t have it. Stroup is suggesting 5 timed singles, which I think I like, so I’m gonna use that.

Missing a lift kind of crushes me emotionally. It’s pretty fucking awful and I usually feel it until I lift the weight I missed or something better.

Squat: 275 x 6 x 2
Real fast, did a 5 second pause on the last one for shits and gigs

Back Extension: 100 x 3 x 5
Feels so good

Pinch Grip DLs: 155 x 3 x 5
So tough

Won’t Take Your Chick to Dinner

But I’ll eat that bitch for breakfast.

Bench: 327.5 x 2, 337.5 x 2, 347.5 x 2
First set was decent, second one I came like 2” out of the groove on the first rep, so that was slow. Third set was also slower than I wanted it to be.

Press: 225 x 5
First 3 were fast, 4th was kinda slow, and the last was a big grind.

Bench: 280 x 8
SOCLOSE on the 9th. Fack.

Skull Crushers: 110 x 12, 11

DB Curls: 60 x 2 x 8
Couldn’t find the 55s, so I just used 60 instead. Cool

You Fuck-Niggas Playing Games Hope to God

I don’t send the Coke Boys on the Job

Yesterday:
Bench: 280 x 3 x 5
Such fast. Very smooth. Press press.

W/Slingshot: 290 x 11
I don’t even know where that came from, but I’m cool with it

Press: 180 x 3 x 5
Felt good, could have rested more between sets, but I have work in 40 minutes, sooooooo…*Hand motions*

Chin Ups: +90 x 5, 5, 9
All swag

Neck Curls: 12kg x 3 x 20
NECK PICKLE

Today:

Squat: 410 x 3 x 5
Smooth and easy, but my stomach felt terrible because I was drinking coffee right before lifting because I’m stupid.

SLDL+ Shrug: 315 x 3 x 5
Papa Patty said these should be heavier, I kind of agreed. Felt good.

Rows: 275 x 3 x 5
Nice and smooth, all three sets. Mm.

Out in Front of Ya Crib like Lawn Gnomes

Squat: 540 x 1
Was not very confident about doing this, but I got it reasonably easy. Depth looks a bit sketchy from this angle but SquattingForApples assures me the crease of my hip was below the top of my knee. 

Cool

Speed Deadlift 315 x 10 x 1
Pretty damn fast, gonna trow another 10lb on there, I think.

Back Extension: 100 x 3 x 5
For the first time ever I felt comfortable on the GHR Bench

Pinch Grip DLs: 155 x 3 x 8
Second and third set were way easier than the first, for some reason.

When a Nigga Die, we don’t Blink Away the Pain

Add another link to the chain,
Scribe a nigga name in ya flesh

Bench: 325 x 2, 335 x 2, 345 x 2
Had like, no faith that I was gonna hit this because I slept like doo-doo. Second set was a bit too slow, but the first and third were smooooooooooooth.

Press: 225 x 4
Kinda close on the fifth, should get it next week.

Bench: 280 x 8
Should have got the 9th, but I was out of the groove. Had the PHATTEST pec pump afterwards

Skull Crushers: 110 x 12, 10

DB Curls: 55 x 2 x 10
Needs moar biceps

A Week From now You’ll be Getting that Reverend Love

Like, “Here lies ‘what’s his name’.”
Shotty in ya baby momma mouth
“Bitch, what’s his name?”

Guys, it’s flannel season! Yay!

Now that I have a tumblr I don’t really have much to say. I think I’ll just leave this as numbers/lifting stuff for the time being so I have it for easy reference if I need it.

If you want to put up with my bullshit: http://www.teambeararms.tumblr.com

Yesterday:
Bench: 280 x 3 x 5
Almost dropped the bar in the middle of the set. That was a bit scary. Hella smooth aside from that.
W/Slingshot: 290 x 9
Nice slow lockout on that last rep.

Press: 180 x 3 x 5
Could have been a bit faster, but still pretty good.

Chin ups: +90 x 3 x 5
Didn’t chalk up for the first set. That was a mistake.

Neck curls: 12kg x 15, 20, 20
NECK GAINZZZZZZZZZ.

 

Today:
Squat: 410 x 3 x 5
Smooth and fast, but exhausting. I was hella tired.

SLDL: 300 x 3 x 5
Felt easier than ever. Working on that yoke game.

Rows: 275 x 3 x 5
Same ol’ I probably wouldn’t even do these if having a giant back wasn’t the coolest thing ever.

I’m Standing in a Field Full of Landmines

Doing the moonwalk, hoping I blow up in time.

So basically Bell has said that they’re refusing to reconnect the cut lines in front of my house until the 19th of September. They are also refusing to put up a temporary line. They also decided they didn’t need to notify us OR our Service Provider of this. They ALSO took 4 hours to tell this bullshit to my mother on the phone today. Luckily my neighbors are fantastic people and are letting us use their network until ours it back up.

~6 hours sleep, felt bloated when my belt was on from eating too close to lifting. I have 5 hours of class before I lift now, so I think breakfast before I leave home, and then 1 PB sangwich between classes should be the correct formula.

Deadlift: 495 x 3
Last one was a grinder, first was too slow. I need to make my last warm up heavier. Probably 440 for both pulls and squats. Either way, I could hypothetically set a new 1 rep PR now, but I won’t until I hit 510 x 3

Speed Squats: 275 x 6 x 2
Some guy in the official Crossfit shoes told me that was a lot of weight to be squatting so low with. I didn’t have the heart to tell him it’s just over 50%. They were all real fast, anyways.

Back Extension: 100 x 3 x 5
Felt good. Pausing at the top is pretty nice.

Pinch Grip DLs: 155 x 8, 6, 6
Was wondering why these were going worse than last week until I remembered that I just pulled heavy. Cya.

The Buck 50 Sharp

It’ll give ya scars where your hickeys are.

Didn’t have internet in my house last night because some fucking idiots requested that a sidewalk be put in knowing it would be months of construction AND raise our property taxes, then when the workers filled in the ditches they used Rough Fill instead of clean fill because they’re cheap assholes, so when they dumped it in something cut our phone lines (second time they’ve done this). I’m basically refusing to be friendly with the people on the street (legit one house) who requested the sidewalk because they’re selfish cunts that are not only massively inconveniencing us for what’s been over 2 months so far and they aren’t even close to done, but also costing everyone on the street money, just so they can have a side walk on a street that has almost no traffic whatsoever.

Fucking assholes.

Anyways.

Slept like doo doo. ~6.5h total. Had pretty low expectations for yesterday.

Bench: 322.5 x 2, 332.5 x 2, 342.5 x 2
All of them were pretty smooth, second rep at 342.5 could have been a bit faster. Yay PRs!

Press: 225 x 4
Missed the fifth, wasn’t that close.

Bench: 280 x 8
Almost didn’t lock it out on the last rep, but I was only expecting 7, so that’s good.

Skull Crushers: 110 x 11, 10

DB Curls: 55 x 2 x 9
Did some mirror posing afterwards because I like to be obnoxious.

Some girl that I would hella hold hands with was doing legit low bar squats to depth. Didn’t talk to her because I’m a jelly dick.

The Whole Team Sentenced

Start to look like a paragraph

School’s dece so far. Profs seem reasonable. 0810h classes are a fucking prison because ALL the college kids start at 0810h so getting into the parking lots is a fucking nightmare.

People fucking suck.

I have a really cool project where I get to redesign the front end of a ’68 Mustang to accommodate a Forrd Crate engine. I’m legit excited to get started on this, because I get to weld and shit. Engineering boner.

Yesterday:
Bench: 280 x 3 x 5
First set felt like 225, third felt like 315. Pretty sure my CNS is fried from Friday
W/Slanger: 290 x 7

Press: 180 x 3 x 5
Smooth

Chin ups: +90 x 5, 5, 8

Neck Curls: 25lb x 15, 15, 20
I’ma need my shit to be looking like an elephant’s knee

Today:

Squat: 405 x 3 x 5
First two sets were hella smooth, like a box cutter through hot butter. Third one was dece, but I ended up taking 15+ minutes talking to some guy who wants to get strong then get involved in strongman, so I got a bit cold.

SLDL + Shrug: 300 x 3 x 5
Some cute girl with a french accent was on the hack squat machine while I was doing these. I may or may not have been drooling.

Rows: 275 x 3 x 5
Felt good, especially the third set.
