In the meantime.......
I've been watching True Blood since Game of Thrones is over, and well, let's just say there is no comparison. TB is pretty campy and can't be taken serious in any way, shape, or form. I FEEL like I'm watching a TV show, where with GOTs I feel immersed in what is going on. However, TB is interesting enough to keep me entertained so I'll finish it out.
So while I was taking some downtime from strep throat, I started plotting out my plans for the next few months, and picked out a meet.
I will be going back to the LRB Template for a little while. It is, without a doubt my fave/best overall "offseason" template because it covers so many things at once. Starting August first I will switch over to the new big-15 template with a LOT of perceived intensity work on big movements. That will continue up until September 15th, when I start training for the UPA meet in November. I have numbers in mind, but most importantly, I just need to show up.
Even with the release of the book, I'm going to be writing a series based on being a "lifer" and what I feel the code around being a lifer is about. From a lifting standpoint, to being a man. If you listened to the podcast or read 5 articles here, you'd know I think we are in a sad state of affairs when it comes to young men. When you have a cult following for a stripper and do nothing like Zyzz, we have gone wrong somewhere in what we are propping up for young men as what a MAN is. Wearing make up, doing your hair, hanging out in womens clothes......none of this is manly. Please save me the liberal mindset that everyone should be able to do what they want to do if they aren't hurting.....blah blah blah. I agree with that, however my concern here is that there are too many young men that look up to someone like Zyzz, who literally did NOTHING.
If you don't like my opinion pieces about it.....don't read em. You got the wholllle internets to yourself to avoid me.
So Wandy lost another fight. My heart sinks for him. It really does. But every athlete falls off the cliff at some point, and Wandy fought wars for years and years, and his time as just passed. I hope he retires soon.
I will be visiting Columbus, Ohio in a few weeks to stay with my buddy Jason Pegg. I am going to get Pegg on a podcast very soon as he's a god damn hoot and knows a fuck ton about training. Jason is a very smart technician as well, and is a tremendous resource to anyone who wants to know how to get better.
They are coming out with Taken 2! Fuck yes. I loved the first one as a "smart" action flick. I'm sure this one will be just as good. Big Liam Neeson fan here.......
Again, it's Monday so I don't have a ton to write. As soon as the book is ready it will be up.
Just to let you know, Wendler got an early copy of it and he texted me "it's one of the best things I've ever read. No bullshit."
I am going to have a video up tonight talking about low bar squatting and why so many guys end up with fucked up wrists, elbows, and biceps from it. It's because they do it wrong, and I will show you how to correct this.
Fuck your Monday!
