What is it about an accident that backs up traffic so long? I mean, all four lanes were open, they were just on the side of the road but traffic was literally at a standstill for an hour. People....scoot the fuck along.
Yes, I'm cranky, however I am staying at a Holiday Inn Express so I also feel smarter. For those of you who follow my blog that have no idea what I'm talking about, go look up the Holiday Inn Express commercials. Good stuff.
|Super happy about shit drivers|
I did train before I left. I did 150 reps of curls with 65 over 5 or 6 sets and a bunch of band pushdowns. I know, thrilling.
Ok so just a note to you guys who took cock biter at his word, he was called out by Brandon Cass, Dan Green, and Jamie Lewis. That's three world record holders. Cock biter can accuse me of name dropping all day long, but it doesn't mean shit because I know and talk to these guys. I will be training with Brandon in the upcoming weeks (he's in KC) and Dan and I chat frequently. Obviously, Wendler knows a little about me, and vice versa. So accusing me of name dropping is pretty fucking stupid. Calling me out on my lifts was pretty fucking stupid, and then there's the whole video taken down thing after it was obvious he used fake plates to try and "prove a point". Folks, if you ever see a guy doing shit like easily besting world records in his basement while he makes "no big deal" faces, it's bullshit. Jamie says he'll give cock biter $1000 if he can show up and out total him. A grand. Since cock biter was deadlifting "795" (he didn't even know how much it was in the description....seriously folks) and my and Jamie's goals are his warm ups, should be pretty easy to show up and grab a quick grand. However, he doesn't plan on competing until "he can break Pacifico's record". I won't be holding my breath on this happening, or cock biter competing any time soon.
However speaking of that whole incident, I'm fucking STOKED about the USPF nationals being back in Chicago, and once I get back to KC and get my MRI done to see what's going on with my leg/quad/hip, I will set my sights on that meet, and plan on smashing the living fuck out of 1800+ beltless. Yes, I've said that for a year and a half, and I think it would have been in the cards back in March before the leg started fucking with me. In fact, I'm not really concerned it's even there anymore. The bench and dead are more than good for it, so once the quad is fixed it should be a done deal. 465 close grip and 725 are the goals there. Hold me to my word, I'm fine with that.
The 365 manual is almost done and I'm kinda sad that the deadline is approaching because the more I write on it, the more I want to add to it. Some will be straight from the blog, like the LRB diet because I HATE writing about diets and shit so consider it just a revision. However the training bits in it are NEW and not recycled. It's some of the stuff that Jim and I have been talking about for some time. I'm not going to say it's innovative because there isn't anything new under the sun, and after reading it initially you may go "that's it?" but to advanced lifters like Jim and myself, it's really been interesting and fascinating as hell. For a lot of reasons.
Paperbacks are back in stock at Amazon, for those that keep asking. I will also have some new shirts in soon and it's going to be a much better quality shirt. I'm not just saying that. It will be tri-blend shirt and they feel amazing. I've been trying to duplicate the very original LRB death is winning...t-shirts I had from spreadshirt and I don't feel I've been able to do it justice for a while, but these are awesome.
Still doing carbnite. I feel fine. I'm really barely eating at this point and not too bad. Weight is kind of hanging around 244ish even though I was down one day to 239-240. I'm just rollin with it.
There's a pretty cool gym in the small town in Mississippi I am going to. If it's still open (who knows?) I will try to get some vids. I believe they have 200 pound dumbbells and shit.
I hope everyone is having an awesome early Holiday season.
