So for you trolls out there, you have to be registered before you can post a comment/troll now. Yes, it won't stop the trolling but it certainly will cut down on it. I mean, I allow the comments anyway but at least now you will at minimum have to attach some fake ass name to a comment. It's all fun and games for everyone, and then trolls start acting like retarded chimps and shit gets shut the fuck down.
So the pre-orders for books are closed and my guy will start printing on them. I also have the order in for the shirts, so as soon as all of that is done and it arrives, I will have it packed up and start shipping it out. My guy sent me the cover and layout for the book and it looks awesome. You will be pleased with it.
I have a trip to Columbus, Ohio scheduled for August. I will be there for 4 days. I am staying with my buddy Jason Pegg, and the itinerary includes breakfast or lunch one day with Wendler, possibly training out at elitefts, then going up to train at Kara Bohigian's place. Should be a very fun trip. If I don't post again, Pegg killed me in my sleep. Call the authorities.
I've needed the last week or so off. Sometimes you don't realize how run down you are until you do decide to take some time off to let everything recharge. I am upping the foam rolling, switching steady state conditioning to at night, and doing an ice bath every Thursday. Training will be on Wednesday and Saturday, with a small workout sometimes on Sunday; but it's optional. I may also limit workouts to 2 movements. 1 press, 1 pull, then front squat, squat, and deadlift on the other day. I am going to use fronts as part of the warm up for back squats. That way you're getting in both all the time.
I will not be out to see Dark Knight Rises opening weekend. I will wait at least a week to see it because I hate packed in movie theaters for the most part. People generally annoy me. So I'm sure we'll all get out to see it, but not until some of the initial excitement dies down.
More beer hate from me..........I've said this for some time.
As soon as Jamie gets home, which I have no idea when that is, we will get the podcast done. We have a backlog of questions to go through so I expect it to be a long one.
Well I have decided it is time for a new dog. I feel like I have mourned Dozer's passing long enough and gotten through it. So I will be searching for a new pup soon. I am still very partial to the bullmastiff however I may also look at a Presa or Cane Corso. I do not get dogs for status symbols. I get those kinds of dogs because I love molossers and because they are my co-protectors of my house and family.
My biceps are sore as fuck. I mean, aching sore.
I need a vacation. I haven't had a real vacation in a few years and I need some white sand, some umbrella drinks, and a place where there's always 7 to 54 hot ladies to look at.
I am ordering some extra paperbacks and shirts. I plan on selling the paperback through Amazon, and shirt wise the new Lion shirt will be replacing the old Skull shirt. I also have a new Trinity shirt that is being worked on that is going to look fucking awesome.
Phil and I are getting some hits on doing seminars. Once we get booked up it will be difficult to fit anyone in for a while, so again if you are a gym owner, strength coach, or would like for us to do a seminar at your gym contact me.
Now this is weird for me, but if you want me to autograph your copy of SLL let me know. I've gotten some e-mails about this and I will do so, but it still feels weird to me.
Also, Andy Bryniarski and I have been talking still. So he may still do the podcast in the future. So keep your fingers crossed for getting Lattimer on. That would be awesome. I also contacted Henry Rollins however I never heard back. I'm trying. Most famous people don't want to allocated a block of their "precious" time to a couple of dudes doing a podcast about Zombies and gunshots to the chest.
If you have any other people that you'd like for me to throw a line to, offer up a name. I'll ask anyone.
My leg still isn't 100% and in a way, I am putting off going to the doctor to get an MRI in hopes that it eventually just goes away. However the pain has been there now for a VERY long time. In a month if it still feels achy after squatting, I'm going to bite the bullet and go in. Fuck.
It's only Tuesday, so the week still kinda sucks.
