I Got A Feeling


I did have a good Christmas - thank you .
I hope everyone here had a good holiday too.

some gratuitous food pics-
usually we do more this year I just made a big ass paella thats a 20" pan.

and an antipast platter of meats


12/27 training

movement and conditioning day
moblity allot- pvc at home
banded walks lunge progressions

bb complex
65 x5 95 3x8
row x rdl x front squat x good morning x squat

trap bar walks
330 10 trips they are short.

20 min assault bike ride

12/28/17 training

moblity lunges banded walks agile 8 type crap

bb complex 95 2x5
row X RDL x power snatch x good morning x squat

A squat
bar-185x10 band around knees 225x5 275x5 315 3x5
B dead 225x5 275x5 315x5 bleh- knee gave up
C barbell roll out - 2x12
D 2 circuits of machine crap

squats felt ok - wanted more voume then this but what ever.
pulls- these are still not feeling good might stick to just trap bar work

having issues with leg drive on the paper clip knee had more pain then I should have so I stopped.

I need to add in a shit ton of single leg work - but it seems to bother knee more- when I do - go figure.


That all looks delicious. Are you finding that as the holiday season winds on, you get tired of all the rich food? By the time we hit Christmas day, I was done.


Yes - the holiday food takes a toll

by round 5 of these you feel good round 10 you feel awesome - the last 5 meh
should have done more single leg work - just managed 2 sets for 1 leg db dead
knee def feeling it now sitting here with an ice pack on the knee now.

I am a dummy- somehow If I dont ‘feel it’ after training
had a physical last week- bp 100/70 EKG was great-
waiting on blood work - guessing my sugars are not great.
did this physical where I did PT - they have a walk in treat release type deal.
they where pretty pumped to see me .


That’s a lot of squats. I often do too many sets and pay for it later on. Why do you think your sugars will be bad? Are you diabetic?


Hey Steve- thanks It felt good- paying for it is part of the fun
As for sugars- just guessing in the dark- shitty schedule , sleeping habits
and often eating the wrong stuff, or on the longer days- just eating too many times a day.

Ive been having sensations of heat on my fukked leg.
like fake leg menopause
ice helps
tried box squats- to take some pressure off the knee-
these are awkward - but I figured out a groove and felt ok.
the slow ecccentric sucks
bss - makes me feel swole- should do these a 2nd day

thats it.


I am def feeling those box squats today.
booty is all sore.

  • eccentric reps are just really taxing.
    used a bunch of ice this morning- and post training today.

should have done more mobility stuffs and like trap bar carries

what ever bicep injury on the right side - is yup tied in to that shoulder
I think a SHIT TON of volume of these might actually work to push that along
dips - I want to get up to 5x20
just some reps and fluff
