Listen, I’m continuing to screw with the movie software. It’s awesome I now lift weights for an hour a day and fool with making the videos for eight. Okay, that includes time where it is burning codecs or converting format or whatever it’s doing while a progress bar goes across the screen and I’m doing something else. Still, annoying. So I’ll just go back to the 21st century method and tell you what I’ve changed:
Squats – same, still doing rack squats, still making great progress
BTN – still doing these the same, still good, still making Jaysun proud.
Bench – I dunno I got stuck and keep missing when I do two rack heights. I should have bought a rack with 1 inch pin holes. Or maybe I’ll buy a 1″ mat bc clearly plates were not working. Hsilman – what should I do – buy another TSC mat and cut it? But right now I’m having fun doing floor press once again. I guess I should do regular bench once in a while too, so that I get some strength off my chest. I almost just went back to doing regular bench all the time but then I remembered that I don’t have a spotter.
Deadlift – changed my deadlift training for the millionth time in the last year. Now I’m doing rack pulls at 6 different heights + regular deadlifts. I know everyone hates on rack pulls. Speed deadlifts were hurting my knee. Maybe it’s just sumo. I’m pulling conventional for now as the rack isn’t wide enough to do sumo.
Overall stuff’s going pretty good. Bought a tarp for raking leaves onto, and a “lopper” to replace one that came with the house but had the handles attached with tape. Found a bigger tarp and another lopper in the shed where my inlaws hide things, so I’m returning the ones I bought. Feels like I just made $40. That place is a dangerous dark cave. You go in and you might find a shiny new tool that’s just what you need. You may find that your mother-in-law has borrowed some of your Sterilite containers. You may knock over a coffee can containing – I’m not making this up – books of matches, thumbtacks, and rusty nails – and do this in the dark, with only the light on your keychain – and you’re wearing flip-flops.
