Protein powder in a misty locker
Tired today with sore triceps to boot. The speed bench went quite well and felt fast, but the triceps dropped their payload on the stability ball benches resulting in non-explosive repping. Last week I did rope pulls (aka face pulls) seated, today standing in front of a lat pulldown. Had to brace myself with one foot on the seat to get enough staying power, lest I pull my face to the floor instead of the rope to the face… Apparently I need more fat around my waist so I can go heavy on these. Better start a 7000 kcal/day eating binge. “Hey, why are you suddenly so fat?”, people will ask me. “Why, because I need to pull heavy weights on the standing rope pull”. I think I will start with eating a grapefruit.
Got myself a locker at gym after getting tired of constantly forgetting my shampoo at home. Not only is my hair guaranteed to be shiny stepping out of the gym, but I also have a nice supply of protein powder, maltodextrin and a shaker to cover post-workout nutrition. Add in the grippers and the training shoes, and one cannot but roll one’s eyes in amazement over why I would slug all this equipment around four times a week via work. Well, I won’t anymore. Defiant to the core… as long as I can remember to bring clean underwear every day.
