Major suck. Just found out I didn't get the perm job at work. Contract's up in one month and then it's Hasta La Vista, Baby. Really pissed about that - it's a good place to work. Don't know what to do now.
OK, check this out. Shoulder pain suddenly went away. No Advil, cocaine, nada. Other aches vanished. It happened right after lunch, munching on chicken wings. I like to gnaw on the bones. Hypothesis: the calcium and collegen were a badly needed nutrient for healing. Am I crazy, or has anyone else seen the same thing?
Another deload day. Lots of miscellaneous exercises, nothing too tough.
Been following a hardgainer's program the past few months, few exercises other than squat, deadlift and bench. Didn't seem to get much good out of it. Strange, I consider myself a hardgainer, yet the hardgainer programs have never seemed to do much for me. I'm going to start adding more assistance stuff, just to get the volume up. Steely D says he added a lot of arm exercises to his routine. My arms are pretty thin, sounds like a good idea. Stop me if I'm wrong, Steely.
Boy, do I work in a hardcore gym. Saw one guy, small but chilseled like crazy, doing stiff leg deads with 360 lbs, lots of reps. Meanwhile, my friend got another guy to hand him 100 lb dumbs so he could do overhead presses. After knocking off a half dozen reps, he drops the weights and is unhappy because he grimaced a bit at the end.
