day 2183 – smash nash

my friend joined me for workout because she wanted to check out this location. she also wanted to do what i do because she wanted my hops; that in itself is a big compliment. i needed to get back on track with my strength lifts and stay consistent. my cleans felt better than last time just by staying concentrated the moment the bar leaves the ground to the time my shoulders catch it. my squats felt good and stepped it up by five pounds as my program was written up. i recorded both those lifts so i could get them reviewed by my coach

day 1839 – gym socks

got on the highway and turned for home when i found out i left my gym socks at home. ended up hitting nash after dinner for a quick session of front squats, one of the few barbell exercises i can currently do. nothing like lifting some iron after many consecutive days of rough days at work. some days i question how sane i am to still be at this office. i really do miss this nash now that i don’t come as often due to work and commitments. but it’s here i find myself most comfortable and the place where i get in the best lifts

day 1797 – long weight 


this view of the cage has been scarce the past month or so. you know it’s long when the first personal trainer i saw pointed at me and said he hasn’t seen me, and then all other trainers also turned to look. i got the point of shame that i’ve been lazy with my gyming, but the fact i’m in means i want to change that. not much has changed at this nash with the exception of a few new trainers. i had to keep it lightweight, but at least it’s a squat and deadlift day in the books. i’ve lost the strength, so priority number one is to rebuild it and work my way back to match those numbers

day 1655 – leg heavy 

my compound movements felt surprisingly good even after a few off days that went awry. a few days away and trainers there came to ask where i’ve been. squatted the same weight as last time but with more ease, and even upped the deadlift cause i felt up to it. maybe lifting across from my kinesiologist helped pump me up and made sure i follow through. i’m going for something new in my routine. it’s time i switch things up because i have different wants and need to zone in to the specifics

day 1258 – at the cage

my legs are sore from yesterday’s workout, but also been a little too casual with the rolling and releases lately. my left knee is pretty banged up but onwards with my program regardless; hitting up a different location, but still hammering down on those same exercises. aside from the unusual tightness, i felt good and pushed through my routine with less difficulty
