All Out Attack


#1561

That weight starts about where I ended up this am.


#1562

Thanks. I’m doing deadlift only. I’m just a little afraid I might not be in the shape I need to be in. Work has been crazy.


#1563

Wow!

I got a pretty good pump. It was not for having to head out for work, I would have stayed at it. It felt good.

In and out in 40 minutes. I have another crazy week ahead. This is the last week at school, so I give out the final Tuesday. I can then forget about job number two until the fall. My daughter has a lot of tennis this week. A match tonight and tomorrow. This is followed by a huge tournament out of town this weekend. We leave Thursday night.

My daughter and her partner are probably the best team in their league when they bring it mentally. Its something I am preaching to them. They were intense Friday and played the defending state champs. They lost, but gave them all they can handle. I told them how proud I was. The problem is they are not always that intense.

#1574

If high rep, heavy leg press is a nice way to start the day then I don’t want to know what a bad way to start the day is for you.


#1575

Probably hurting myself.


#1576

“…hurting yourself”. Jeez. You=still unbreakable.


#1577

Oh, I’m not sure about that. Things to hurt easier and longer than when I was younger.


#1578

Well, you’re not “over the hill”. Remember, handstand pushups.

We spent Friday and Saturday out of town for a tennis tournament for our daughter. She and her partner made it to the quarter finals, but probably should have done better. I don’t want to be the guy to say my daughter carried the team, but my daughter carried the team. I think she wants to play singles next season. She is very frustrated with her partner, who is also her best friend. So it’s tough.

As for the work out I got jammed up at the bottom of 415, and needed a little help off the chest. The hand off was crap, so It was bad the entire lift. I’ll repeat the weights on my next 1/1/1 day.
