What the Hell is Wrong with Me
Since beginning training with the pro I’ve discovered I suck at lunges. So yesterday I was training legs alone and decided to make it Lunge CruxifixionTM Sunday.
The pro likes to have me do 100 working reps on one exercise per leg session. So yesterday I elected to make it barbell lunges. Except I’m dumb and didn’t think about lunges being a unilateral exercise? So it really worked out to be 200 lunges, 100 for each leg.
I basically clawed and scraped my way out of them gym yesterday with my hands, because my legs were fucking jelly. Today I could swear my entire ass feels like it is one gigantic bruise of maximum tenderness. Forget stairs—just sitting down hurts like hell. And sitting down on the toilet? I think I’ve discovered the male equivalent of the pain women experience during childbirth.
And you know what? I don’t care. I fucking love it. Can’t wait to do 100 squats ass to grass this week.
I love this shit :-). What the fuck is wrong with me?
Have a kick-ass day in the gym everybody.
Airport Security Win
So I’m traveling this weekend, and had an unexpectedly funny and encouraging experience at airport security yesterday.
I handed the security officer my boarding pass and photo ID. He made some marks on the boarding pass. And then he stared at my ID, then my face, then back at my ID. For an awkwardly long time.
security dude: “Is this photo old?”
me: “uh. it was issued three years ago.”
"you look very different. what changed?"
"uh. I got fat?"
"no man." At this point, the security officer flexed his arms into a most muscular pose. "you got swole!"
Have a great weekend everybody. Kick ass in he gym today.
The Freak of BFN Connecticut
So I’m in rural CT visiting friends for the holiday weekend. One of my friends wanted to go to the gym and she invited me to come along. We drove several miles to her gym in a rural mall. She’s working with her trainer, and I’m training delts.
I am the biggest person here.
This is such a singularly unique experience for me. People are looking at me oddly. Giving me this wide empty space around where I’m working out.
I’m a freak apparently?
I kinda like it :-)
kick ass in the gym today, everybody.
Feels at Work
So one of the guys I work with has the same name as me (no relation). Today a person showed up looking for me but went to the other Dr. Wannabe first. His response: “are you looking for me or the Dr. Wannabe with bigger muscles?”
Unexpected Benefits of Olympia Season
I’m gradually becoming familiar with the lifestyle of an IFBB pro. After competing at the Arnold and a few international shows early this spring, the pro I train with took the past two months as offseason to recover. He was still working out, but less frequently and only the Big Three muscle groups (legs, back, and chest). Cardio was reduced and dietary restrictions were relaxed.
All that changed this month. He’s officially back in onseason now, starting the four-month prep for the Olympia coming up in September. Dietary restrictions are back, cardio is coming back, and training is becoming a lot more frequent.
It’s very interesting to watch and learn. And I’m finding I’m reaping some personal benefits as well.
The last three times I’ve trained with the pro, he’s trained with me. We discuss before getting to the gym what we’ll train that will fit both his split and mine. He always kicks my ass, but when we train together it’s a whole other level of ass-kicking. I like it.
It’s been both encouraging and discouraging to lift with him. I am moving a lot more weight than I once could although I definitely still don’t hold a candle to him. But it’s always fun to see how many sets I can “hang with” him as we pyramid up in weight or reps. I’ve set a few PRs recently which has been fun :-) …but then he blazes right past my PR, sometimes by a factor of 2 :-O haha
One final bitch: the last two times we have trained together we have trained legs. Mother. Fucker. That’s all I’ve got to say.
Hope all of you are doing well. Kick ass in the gym today everyone. And make sure you’re having fun in the process.
The VP is so pleased with how stuff is going that he just invited everyone to lunch on his dime and gave us the afternoon off.
That means legs training with the pro starts at 4pm instead of 6pm for me today. Today is legs day for him as well, so we’re just going to switch out between sets. Read: I’ll be puking tonight.
blondesquats asked: How do I achieve penis gains
Do 8 sets of 20 penis push-ups and you will see mad gains in a couple of weeks trust me
ok I’m trying to add some mass for the ladies
Is it true that if you don’t use it, you lose it?
I recommend sticking to the big three penis mass-building exercises: penis bench, penis deadlift, and penis squat. Keep your penis form tight, incrementally add weight, and massive penis gains will be yours.
