    OFF DUE TO HURRICANE SANDY

    Wednesday: 10/31/12
    Halloween

    Chest/Bi's
    Incline Bench: Warmup, 225x8, 275x8, 315x8, 405 (PR, Filmed)
    Flat Bench: Warmup, 225x10, 275x10, 315x8, 405x3, 405x2
    CGB w/ Chains: 135x10, 225x10, 275x8, 315x2
    BB Curls (Curl Bar); 100lbs, 8x8

    So no sleep due to 9month old not wanting to and barely able to peel myself off the floor I decided to go to the gym anyway. I left work early due to me jsut not being rested enough to sit there and do nothing. In the middle of a transition, relocating.

    If anyone followed any previous logs they will see the history of my lifting vs sleep battle with my son. He does not like to sleep. For intance, last night I was woken up @ 1:30am. I left the bedroom to settle down because i was at my wits end of not sleeping. I then went back to bed only to be woken up again at 4AM. I give the monster a bottle and he falls asleep. I went back to the living room and sprawled on the couch, and woke up at 7:45, LATE FOR WORK, Dammit.

    Back to yesterday, I was drained, yet determined to do a lift I was thinking about over the last weekend. Oh yeah, couple this with the fact that I spent last Saturday evening in the ER becuase my son was hot as fire. Come to find out he had a 102.4 temp. Sunday it lifted off him, 24hrs. I'm serious. He was pressed against me and I thought he had peed on me. That's how hot he was. Guess what they did, 3 hrs later, they give him tylenol and say he's fine, WTF? Luckily he came off it the following day.

    So now I'm under the weather becuase he passed it on to wifey and I. Here I am wanting to go to the gym anyway. I get there and my buddy is locked and loaded and ready to get started. I warmup and it seemed for that moment, the tiredness and sickness left. I hit 315 and said let's do it. I loaded the bar and strecthed. I went for it. Came down easy and touched my chest, and sprung back up. Once I got near lockout I stalled. The final 2 inches, was hellacious. I just reracked it. Some will count it, others will call bull****. I say, godwilling i'll try it again another day.

    One might ask, what the hell does this have do with a joint formula. If youread on what I did following that lift and compound it with what I performed last week, one can only put two and two together. It's the shiz. I feel awesome. No soreness has followed whatsoever.

  3. No doubt, Pack and Mack 11. I'm feeling good even though I've been battling lack of sleep and flu like symptoms since last Thursday. I'm taking a deload this week to prep for St Jude's Bench/Dead competition November 10 @ Mercer Mall. I posted that incline on YouTube. I'll link it when I get home from house hunting in Pa. It's listed under HokiePride 405 incline.
    Cool thing is the virus I picked up from my son came right when I should have taken time off to prep for the comp. I usually take a week off and do nothing unless its cardio until the Wednesday before. This is ok because it doesn't interfere with my timing. Go figure.

    Thursaday 11/1 Delts, Traps

    Friday 11/2 Off/Flu

    Saturday 11/3 Off/flu

    Sunday 11/4 Off/really weak

    Monday 11/5 House Hunting in Pa/ getting stronger

    Good stuff. And at least the timing of the sickness worked out for you. I had something wicked about a month ago, but thank god it was bacterial so some antibiotics did wonders.

    Not eating for a week and a half made me lose about 15lbs though.

    Cant wait for your meet.

    Yeah, I beat it. It was by chance. It fell in line with the comp. I don;t know how I got over it. it lifted off my wife and son as well. We all healed together. I'm determined to hit the weights and not lose strength no matter the circumstances. I'm also selling my house in VA and purchasing one in PA in the midst of running this. I'm running back and forth between VA/PA for appraisals, home inspections and closing on both homes, while getting very little sleep bewtween my almost 10 month old, wife, 2 dogs and 2 cats. I'm on fire homie and love the challnege to get to the gym and smash PR's.

    Filmed a PR last night which is posted above. On another note we are having our first showing of our home in VA today. I pray this person loves it ad makes an offer. It seems too good to be true. We thought no one would put an offer in due to the price. We shall see how it goes. Boss is off today, so I guess it will be a more relaxed day for myself
