I Got A Feeling


#181

oh hell No…Someone had better got paid some good $$


#182

Yeah, and put it on health insurance.


#183

two things-

after 14 hours- you never see it.
worse- these are my hours pretty almost every day


#184

your not kidding…

actually I get insurance where I am now- but I do have to do those hours.


#185

12.8.17

I ‘officially’ got job
its the job Ive been doing for 7 months.

Its not full time so technically I dont have a job?
( voice got squeaky on the last part of the sentence)

but the days/hours/dollars/ equate to two full time jobs.
but I be getting that insurance 401k etc

doing the same shit I been doing.
but I cant train.
no time- when you do a 20 hour day 3-4 days a week
you cant really train.
and when you get that one day or day with a late start
Im all pumped to train -
but the next day - when Im doing that 20 hours day
the squats I did the day before - leave me fucked up.

make sense - why Im not tracking much training.
going to embark on a daily bw routine with one or two days a week for strenf

that all being said

I trained.

12/8/17
mobility yes- lunges
lunges banded lunges- the shit.
a bunch of shit like the agile 11.

dip x HLR - 3x10
shoulder mini db stuffs 4 rounds

A squat bar-85x 10
225 2x10 275 x10 315 3x5
B1 zpress 65 2x8 95 2x8
B2 bb row 135 4x10

thats it.

notes
I lost my belt at the gym - no idea when .
shit was an inzer 30$ two prong
but I did rock some wrist wraps and knee sleeves
and shoes.
squats tens felt really good.
315 felt heavy - cuz I am detrained.

zpress- right bicep is still jacked up
going to try to do some upper volume to get this sorted.
rows- cant load because of the lame bicep
knee felt good- but the cold/wet/humid stuff sucks

thanks for looking

Hey Kev- Congrats on the Job thing…enjoy the holidays!..if you have time


#187

Damn, well if that’s how it works, I haven’t had a job in 6 years!

Remember mate: work to live, don’t live to work.


#188

Thanks OG I am going to enjoy the holidays.

In fact I think I have thanksgiving food pics to put up here.

Yes the job is a thing-


#189

ahhh I have not had a ‘job’ since 1999-2002- I have been freelance ever since.
Basically I work at one venue- or facility - whenever there is an event or work - I am there and when there isnt a show - work or maintenance etc
Im not there.

#192

Been busy - I’ve been trying to do a body weight circuit in the morning

BW squat x BW push-up x v-up sit up
Gradually adding volume
Right now it’s so basic
25 squat 10 push-up 10 V-up
I might do 3-5 rounds
Surprisingly w win this little activity j feel good - loose and almost spry I should add a yoga type flow.


#193

I’m late on these but here you go

Turkey as a trophy then carved
That is a 23lb bird brined roasted glazed
Biggest I’ve done
Two day brine one day air dry
I use a high heat roast and foil to slow the breast cooking
Glaze is butter mirin and ground up fresh rosemary
Stuffing - chestnuts sausage herbs and brioche
Glazed sweet potatoes
Mashed potatoes and cranberry
Ther was also Brussels roasted with bacon
And peas and pancetta

Pics are out of order hard to manage that part
Ther is a pic of the table and a pic of the GIANT manhattan on ice I had while watching star wars with my kid


#194

Hey. I just made my way back over here. I’m glad to see you back again. The food looks amazing. What did you put on the sweet potatoes?

notes

bw was 180 in track pants
trap bar - all from low handle the 405 or 420 or what ever felt heavy as F
the temp RDL- these are super hard- but I need that posterior chain work
my left glute isnt working well- and the parts of the hamstring that are missing - are still weak.

the bw squat and pushup stuff-
has made a difference in body comp-
and just feeling spry-
however the pushups seem to aggrivate the blown up bicep
go figure


#197

Kev, I hope you, your wife and Ronan have a Merry Christmas. And not to be captain obvious but 420 trap bar feels heavy as F because it is heavy as F.


#198

Steve- thank you
Yes - we are gearing up to have a nice holiday
I wish you and your family a Happy Holiday as well

420 trap bar- heavy enough.
