Awesome man.
Great you talked to her :slight_smile:
You’re such a decent person


#5031

Aw shucks :blush:

She’s the mother of one of the ladies who trains with one the good PLers at Elite. She’s just got a plain good attitude: she isn’t happy with just going through the motions. She learns, and she improves. Also has a wicked sense of humour.


#5032

I do make a point of helping out new people at the gym, especially older and younger. On occasion that’s a waste of time. Usually not.


#5033

Burgers: anabolic and anti-viral

When is your next meet, if you have one planned?


#5037

Woke at 219.8 lbs, looking similar yesterday and the previous days.

@antagonisticsavant thanks. Right until they didn’t, huh? I’ve still got a lot to learn. Like stopping when I should.

@Destrength July 15. I’ve got this block, a deload, another accumulation block, a deload and then peak.


#5038

I am looking forward to it.


#5039

So am I @Destrength, so am I. I’m looking to crack 1400 lbs


#5040

Woke at 218.7 lbs, looking the same as ‘usual’. I’m getting somewhat confused now, because I’ve been eating over budget most of the last 10 days.


#5041

You know what they say, when you are smiling all the time you’re burning cals!!!


#5042

Ok, and what would be happening to me then? I mean, I smile on occasion…


#5043

I cant get that one smile you posted out of my head, so now you’re always smiling to me lol


#5044

Yes Mark is the smiling giant :slight_smile:


#5045

You guys :blush:


#5046

Random information: last night I dreamt I benched four plates in my single ply shirt. @Destrength handed out to me.


#5047

It’s a sign. Go to the gym next time wearing your single ply shirt, slap 4 plates on the bench and push that thing off your chest. No safeties, no spot, no warmup, just all you!


#5048

You know what that means, buy me a plane ticket to Australia for a 4 plate bench.


#5049

To be honest I am not sure Mark could unrack it solo. I am pretty sure I couldn’t and my PR isn’t that far off (380).

Or maybe I just suck really bad at unracking.
