So, I’m on the road this week in Colorado. Had to fly from the east coast to Chicago. There was a guy, who, I swear could have (might have) been a pro BB. I didn’t get a chance to ask about his training, but estimating him to be about 5-9, 5-10, 220? Huge traps and calves and his arms were easily 20-plus inches (I’m probably being way to conservative). He had that ‘dry’ look to him, that pre/post/near competition look. He was up in first class and I honestly don’t think he’d have fit in coach, well, his shoulder girth anyway.
Anything going on in Chicago or Denver?
I’ve made some pretty good gains this year, certainly not even close to goal yet, but noticeable. So, I go to the local gym here in CO, a big commercial gym in a college town, and there are just some big guys.
I don’t have these kind of folks at my normal gym. It’s inspiring to be there, but ironically, it’s also kind of frustrating. I usually don’t pay attention to folks in the gym, but shit, when you have a bunch of folks who dwarf you, it’s tough not to notice.
Another cool thing is that when I come out here, I get to use the Hammer Strength machines. It’s like a shock once a month or two. Today, I just went down the line doing chest work. I got a pump in my chest like I’ve never had before.
OK, back to work…
