Boy talk about a boring ass UFC card. I about fell asleep, for real, during the Rashad vs Jones fight. The only thing of note about the whole card was the Schaub knockout. Otherwise, a very forgettable card. Still not a fan of Jones, and my take on him that he has zero power was further cemented when after he hit Evans in the face with an elbow, he nailed him with a clean 1-2 right on the chin, and Rashad just looked at him. Glad to see Hendo is going to get a shot.
Watched the new Mission Impossible movie over the weekend. I enjoyed it, even though it did get a little "Die Hardish" on me, with the amount of abuse Cruise was able to take, and just get up and walk away like nothing had happened. These things kind of irk me a little bit in movies, as I really prefer a little more realism when it comes to shit like that. You can't go zip lining down a cable, fall onto a moving truck, then bounce off and land on concrete and get up and walk away, like you fell off of the neighbors trampoline.
Well the weekends are my big eating weekends for IF and I did some "cheating" yesterday. I ate a whole lemon cake, a whole pan of Enchiladas, rice, and 4 bowls of chocolate peanut butter ice cream. I repeated this throughout the day for the most part. I cut off eating at 8 and fell asleep at 9. I think I'm starting to get used to this. I was heavier this morning (247) after being down to 237 a couple of days ago, but that's to be expected. First week is in the books and I really like this way of eating.
We did the Chaos and Bang Your Ears podcast yesterday. Ran about an hour and a half. We didn't get around to all questions but I am going to try and go back through there and answer anything that we didn't go over. Also, the podcast had a few burps, so we had to start and stop a few times, so feel free to overlook that if you please.
My pec minor and shoulder are really not doing well, so I will be doing lots of flyes and cuff work the next few weeks to get that back in order. Because benching was going so well, I got kind of side tracked about what I needed to be doing to keep myself healthy, and ended up where I used to when I benched too much. Shoulder and pec killing me. It's the repping that generally gets me. With singles I tend to be ok, but if I start repping on the bench, it'll bite me down the line. With incline, I don't have this issue for the most part. So I am going to rearrange things to do inclines, bench for singles, and snatch grip PBN as my staple movements, rotating each pressing day. I plan on doing standing overheads after bench for reps, and seated db press after inclines. That's the plan anyway. We'll see how it goes starting this week.
This coming weekend I am going out to see my buddy Phil Stevens and we are going to have a deadlift for reps competition with 500. He has another guy joining us as well. Phil runs the Strength Guild and does Iron Radio and is an all around awesome guy. He's also a great deadlifter so I expect to get my ass handed to me, but I will give it my best.
Short one. It's Monday.
