So I'm on day 5 of forced vacation.
I'm a government contractor and so of course, since the government is shut down I am not working. I am not getting paid either, while the feds do. Nevermind that where I work, the contractors do the great majority of the work.
I could whine and bitch, and I do a little because it's normal to be pissed off that you're sitting home out of work while a bunch of crooked politicians argue over shit that has little to do with your life at the moment. Maybe it will down the road, I don't know. But I know if I lose my house because this goes on for too long, then it certainly has effected me.
I does make me reconsider doing World's or not because traveling is expensive. I am my own label, my own "brand". I don't have a sponsor to pay for my hotel or room and board, etc. I do powerlifting because I do enjoy it, however I don't compete much because it's not a cheap endeavor.
So obviously it fucks with my quality of life in that regard. Mainly because I also love competing with my daughter. If it were just myself, no biggie. But I hate to take that away from her because of something I have no control of.
Hopefully this will get resolved soon and I can get back to work.
Let me also say that anyone who voted for Obama for a second term should lose their voting rights for fucking life. You are mentally incompetent.
Training for worlds -
My sub max work ended more than a week ago, and so I will actually add some weight to the bar now. Feels good though, as my sets with 500 felt possibly the lightest they ever have.
The only problem now, outside of the fact that I may not go to worlds, is that there is a bug running through the house. My youngest is at home with me. Three kids in school is the kiss of death for staying healthy year around.
For those interested in my split, this is what I am doing.
Monday - Bench
Bench or Incline - programmed work
Tit Machine - 2x10-12
Triceps and Biceps
Wednesday - Squat and Pull
Squats - programmed work
Deads - programmed work
Leg Press - 3x10-20
Saturday - Back
Barbell Rows - 4x8
Hammer Pulldowns - 3x8
Hammer Shrugs - 5x10
That's generally it. Basic, to the point.
I don't have a lot to write. Sleep is in the shitter again and when that happens I tend to lose a bit of the "creative process" involved in writing.
Hope everyone is having a great Monday.
