    Time for my favorite poem again....

    DO NOT GO GENTLE INTO THAT GOOD NIGHT

    Do not go gentle into that good night,
    Old age should burn and rage at close of day;
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
    Because their words had forked no lightning they
    Do not go gentle into that good night.

    Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
    Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
    And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
    Do not go gentle into that good night.

    Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
    Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    And you, my father, there on the sad height,
    Curse, bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
    Do not go gentle into that good night.
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Very nice DW.

  2. Nice DW

    Also one of my favourites, as well as this one

    Cats by Arthur Seymour John Tessimond

    Cats no less liquid than their shadows
    Offer no angles to the wind.
    They slip, diminished, neat through loopholes
    Less than themselves; will not be pinned

    To rules or routes for journeys; counter
    Attack with non-resistance; twist
    Enticing through the curving fingers
    And leave an angered empty fist.

    They wait obsequious as darkness
    Quick to retire, quick to return;
    Admit no aim or ethics; flatter
    With reservations; will not learn

    To answer to their names; are seldom
    Truly owned till shot or skinned.
    Cats no less liquid than their shadows
    Offer no angles to the wind

  3. I moved on Saturday got a chance to get my 45 minutes fasted cardio in. I was so toasted after the move that I seriously thought about taking Sunday morning workout off.

    I decided to go through the motions. It's a 50-55 minute walk to the gym now so I can despense with cardio cuz work is the same distance. I figure a total of 12 trips a week and I won't have to do any cardio. To and from work is 10 and 3 times to the gym is 6 so a possibility of 16 trips per week.

    I got to the gym and got my belt and knee wraps and decided to give it a shot. Now were going to see what I am made of...

    The first warmup for front squats was really stiff I decided to slow them down and really stretch it out the second was 140 and a bit looser so I decided I'd go for it...

    Front squats 230 X 10 X 2 very solid reps, I slowed it down and took what I could get it was close to perfect... alright complete victory
    Db incline press (30 degrees) 70 X 10 X 2 was not too difficult first day on 10's
    Lat pulldown 145X 10 X 2 not that difficult
    Deads 295 X 10 X 2 I was most worried about these cuz I have been pushing these up very aggresively and my glutes and hams are toasted (sumo) I crushed them and only had to regrip for the last rep of the second set..
    Push Press 120 X 10 X 2 These are going well I expect some pr's on this lift..
    Decline Tri Extension 90 X 10 X 2 not too bad..
    Obar curl 100 X 10 X 2 Owned it
    Calf raise 115 X 10 X 2

    Wow I guess I'm tougher than I thought... not a bad workout. I am so trashed today though, glutes and hammies are screaming!!

    I finished off with bar of death and a full ab workout and walked home. Battered but victorious, never missed one rep!!

    I was in a position where I was just trying to let my body tell me how far to push it. Once I loosened up I was ok to just make it by.

  12. Well again I was not at my best, the alarm rang at 3:30 am and I couldn't get back to sleep so I was running tired and recovery was not what it should have been, again I just played it by feel and got it done.

    Front squats 240 X 10 X 2 Just a little tougth on the last rep
    Db incline press (30 degrees) 75 X 10 X 2 was not too difficult
    Lat pulldown 150X 10 X 2 not that difficult
    Deads 305 X 10 X 2 Used a different bar and the grip sucked so I went to my old bar and had no problem on the second set. Just about time to get some chalk going. I have been saving that as a psychological boost.
    Push Press 125 X 10 X 2 Surpised now easy this was.
    Decline Tri Extension 95 X 10 X 2 went well..
    Obar curl 100 X 10 X 2 Turns out that I did 100 last time as well when I was supposed to do 95
    Calf raise 120 X 10 X 2

    I made it and I am not as winded as I was previously, I was so tired Sunday and before that I was doing 15's. Only problem I am encountering is recovery is pretty difficult when pushing this hard. When you're 52 that is always an issue.

    I have done approx. 370 minutes fast paced walking so far this week 230 more and I do not have to add any cardio. I will have that done by tommorow.

    Diet got bad on the weekend and monday as moving it's hard to get decent meals in. It was much better yesterday.

  13. Oh forgot to mention I said a little prayer before I squatted and then before deads, I asked God for the strength to get through it or the good sense not to injure myself. I got the strength to finish. Yah when I feel battered I go to his playbook.

    Even as an agnostic I still call on my higher power from time to time for the same things; seems to keep the good sense in my head instead of my ego at the very least. Great workout as always DW. I got up at 3:30 as well, the difference for me was I went back to sleep for another 3 hours after my early morning drain!
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

  16. Even though that wasnt at your best...dam it was a good work out! You are making phenomenal progress DW!

    Yah problem is when you get older it gets harder to go back to sleep, plus my legs are in constant doms so that makes it hard to get comfortable.

    Thanks, I just want to get a workout in where I am well rested.

  19. May buddies web site is looking good now, and the new gym is in full swing...

    http://www.marshallshouse.com/index.html

    I a got a pretty good sleep last night, I got off the HghPro to conserve supply but I got an extra bottle recently and added it again to get some much needed recovery. Deads are hard to do in HST and I will probably opt for tbar or bent over rows next time.

    DW I just spent 10 minutes checking out Marshall's gym website and I have to say I want to be a member there. If you are able to make something similar to that in Montreal there will be a lot of very happy people I am sure. Considering what you get for the price, I feel it is truly a steal compared to what I pay for mine.

    The basic idea is a trainer can be available for more than one person at a time, and the time a person needs a personal trainer with them is dependant on experience. After the initial learning curve it's just extra advice and correcting form.

    Yah you need 100 lbs plates for the big lifts... Marsh is old school, he has as sled pull too. No smith machine though, he opted for a second cage... he is not big on machines. Family type atmosphere where everybody helps each other is promoted. If you want to get these kinds of advantages for a reasonable price people need to work together.
