Andy was back at the gym today. I like him and his gf now that he’s proven himself. Still am puzzled by how I’ve seen him lift 6 times and he is always going light (i.e i’ve never seen him lift more than 265 on any exercise). But am going to pick his brain for sumo advice since he pulls 575.
He was eating gummi bears in the locker room and told me that they were a perfect source of post-workout glycogen. I’m not sold because he has my body plus 20 lbs of gut. But I ate 4 of them. Red ones seemed especially potent.
New crossfitter at the gym this past week. Reasons to like: never tries to take the rack from me, has good form, trains daily, presses BW, seems to have some sort of purpose, hasn’t tried to talk to me. Reasons to dislike: wears Reebok gear and necklace, weighs 140? @ 5’8?, loves the bumper plates. Verdict: cautious optimism.

love this exercise
could stay at the gym forever. stay longer bc i know when i get home, my wife will nag. come home bc I don’t want the nagging to be too harsh. Fine line. Like going to the bar after work.
Last night was taking a shower and decided I needed Average bands bc my strongest pair is Light. Ordered them while naked. Hi Dave Tate. At least dried off first (and didn’t sit in chair.)
