I can see the top from here

5x5B today: squats, OHP and deadlift. It was a tough workout today, and I suspect that I’m getting closer to the weights where I’ll start failing reps. I hate failing reps; I hate being close to failing. At that point … Continue reading

Run between the raindrops

This weather, wtf? It’s almost 70ºF out there. I’m certainly not complaining, just getting whiplash. Along with the warmth has come a lot of rain, and I was hoping to take advantage of a break to squeeze in a run … Continue reading

Breaking down my bench press

Yet another day of running around at work. I’ve been working at home in the evenings lately; I can’t get a chunk of time to focus on things in the office. I hate this. But the gym is my happy … Continue reading

Q: How do you eat an elephant?

A: One bite at a time. Not that I would eat an elephant, that’s awful. Anyway, right now life is feeling like I’ve just got too much going on. I can’t decide if I’m disorganized, am having poor time management, … Continue reading
