Weapons

“Temper is a weapon we hold by the blade.” J.M. Barrie

Technically it’s a “Corinthian Helmet”. Is it a weapon if you wear it… on ย your face?

Our office has an FNG that flies off the handle about the stupidest shit. It’s very entertaining, but generates a lot of stress. He prides himself on taking karate classes and having self defense skills, but all I can think when I see him lose his shit is, there is nothing about this guy that’s an effective weapon.

Joe Rogan’s interview with Miesha Tateย touched on this – and lots of other great shit, as it’s nearly three hours long. It’s interesting the personality (or persona?) differences between Tateย and Rhonda Rousey. The latter always seems so angry and fired up, while Tate seems chill even to the point of seeming disinterested. I liked hearing her take on how that affects her performance in the cage, her thoughts on Rousey’s defeat and decision to take a year off rather than “getting the taste of loss outta her mouth”, and her high school wrestling stories. And I fully support Miesha’s stance on chocolate flavored things beingย bullshit.

Monday | The Zerchers sure wake up the booty.

Tuesday | Was listening to a podcast at work which inspired me to try the pike pulses, a move from Gymnastic Bodies, in my warm up.

Sweet baby Jesus, those are hard. Sat there just trying to get my feet off the floor for a while. Like a jedi virgin trying to use the force. Ended up sitting on a 15# plate which allowed me to actually get my feet off the ground. Hadn’t tried the SL candlesticks in a while and I was excited that I was able to do them this time. Had done Tuesday’s session using heavier weight on the sled pulls in the past, but I was feeling it in my flexors instead of my glutes, so I shed some lbs. Feeling pretty sore in the glutes, hammies, and quads. Still searching for my sleep groove.

Thursday | The O-lifting sesh went well. Amanda was my partner and kept me honest on taking full rest, spotting the wall, and breaking parallel on the squats. Again with the power of the grounding. Hollow body holds: the name confuses me, but the movement makes all the abs hurt so, okay! DJ rolled in at shift change with a piece for show and tell: a fancy new bow. Pretty fucking rad, and I can see how one could kill some meat with that.

Sat down and got all the math laid out for the carb cycling plan. Just need to get in the bod pod and find out how much of me is “lean body mass”.

Check out this chic carb-cycling (and turn on the volume):
