Architecture & Acronyms

“Architects are pretty much high-class whores. We can turn down projects the way they can turn down some clients, but we both have to say yes to someone to stay in business” – Phillip Johnson

Coming off of vacation like…

some chins

So, let’s pull up some Good Fucking Design Advice to light a fire…

Tuesday | I need to practice the reverse yump roping. Awkward. The band-assisted dead bugs are legit; I like that you have to work on breathing through them. I don’t think I was doing the band-assisted squats properly as I wasn’t feeling them anywhere. Though the rig and I had some special moments.

Wednesday | Really pumped for the nutrition challenge. The toughest part of Day 01 was drinking my body weight in ounces of water. Hmm. Sentence structure… Also, I’ve got to streamline the food logging process, though I am sure it will get easier as it becomes habit. As far as the workout went, the back squats didn’t feel great on the right glute/adductor region. Hip thrusts felt good though. And it had been a while since I’d attempted handstand walks. I felt really strong inverted for some reason. I’m gonna start just hanging out in my casa upside down.

Thursday | Loved the recovery session! The dead bug- bear crawl combo was fantastic.

The only thing left on my list for the 45DNC (acronyms are the best) are the “before” pics.

Maybe we’ll save the chaps for the “afters”

I really love how the 45DNC is set up. It’s not about perfection but about building better habits. And that there isn’t any partner penalty bullshit, other than if someone quits. It’s better to post a zero and move on that to say fuck it and DNF. Can’t wait to see what Day 45 brings for the group!

I am going to be able to take a fancy trip with all the money I’m gonna save drinking water instead of coffee
