Pumpkin & Porn

First things first. Hello, October…

come at me fall
But no fucking pumpkin coffee. We’ve gone over this…

Secondly, I recognize that not everything requires my comment. However, this is my blog so I’m gonna do it anyway. Can we all just agree: one shall not hashtag one’s training/sport/lifting photos or videos with ‘beastmode’ if said content has shitty ass form? Actually, can we just establish to never hashtag ANYTHING ‘beastmode’ going forward? Yes. That’s better.

And onto the porn. On his latest episode, Robb Wolf of theย Paleo Solution Podcastย speaks with Gary Wilson, author of the new book, Your Brain on Porn. In a similar way that hyper-palatable food has lead to obesity, could internet porn be causing erectile dysfunction? Take a listen to this fascinating conversation for yourself. (And step away from “the machine”…)

Spent a good chunk of time on the foam roller to start today’s session in the gymnasium. According to the anatomy charts online, I am pretty sore in my adductor magnus, latissimus dorsi, teres major, and infraspinatus today. In layman’s terms, my butt and armpits hurt.

The wide grip bench felt good. Matty Ice gave me some good cues about keeping my shoulders down and that helped alot. How many times must one be told… shoulders down and back? Dumbell rows felt good, strong. Totally whiffed the devil’s bicycle in that first portion of the workout…

Thirty-thirty’s were painful and hard. I am feeling like I’ve got zero aerobic base. I’m sure some of that is getting back into the swing of things after a long weekend off and such (maybe that whole rehab thing), but I really want to work on that. I had forgotten what it feels like for such things to be really hard. I will be sore from this tomorrow.

I slept like crap last night; I went to bed way too late.
