day 1976 – eleiko platform

i’m pleasantly shocked when i walked into city square steve nash to find two new sparking platforms with sets of bumper plates neatly lined up. i only wish brentwood would also replace some of their broken bumper plates. it’s unacceptable to not even have one full set of bumper plates in the whole gym. i stayed pretty patient for five months waiting for my shoulder to heal and now i’m itching to get back into olympic lifting. when not in motion, the ligament doesn’t bother me, but got to be extra careful and not go ham too quickly. i’ve wanted to refine my techniques and this might be the year to do it

day 1875 – treadmill intervals

spent my off day from flipping for a rare cardio moment because i simply can’t find a way to appreciate it. i don’t think i’ve been on a treadmill for more than five minutes since i last did the sunrun. by the end of it, i was dropping with sweat. my lower body is so taxed from my regular activities i need not to do more leg work even more on my off days. the rest of the time was for core, stretching and rolling

day 1854 – treadmill trek

walking through the woods and running through the city while watching federer play the game he knows best. a rare day in the gym without doing squats or any barbell related exercises. i don’t usually do cardio at the gym aside from warmup, but i had to try out their new treadmills with these cool features. i didn’t do any compound movements, but it was enough to know that my shoulder is still nowhere near normal functions. all i wanted to do was insert myself back into some activities

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 1807 – camper

i was on the fence of doing bootcamp today but got peer pressured into it since multiple coworkers tried to call me out for skipping. i didn’t want it to interfere with the new workout schedule i had planned to start. luckily i didn’t get lazy after the bootcamp; i stuck with my original plan and went to the gym after. it worked out because i spent that time at the gym while knight bridge was experiencing huge delays from a truck collision. though i didn’t completely escape from the backed up traffic of a flipped truck, i got my pulling exercises in

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 1732 – grippy socks

sporting the new free socks won from the nash challenge. came with two high quality grippy socks that feels really comfortable for running. this comes timely since it seems i’ve lost some socks lately and need to restock some socks. played another game on second line but no other word to describe than just plain awkward seeing the ex i don’t want to see. chilling with friends after civil war was enticing, but opting to go home was probably the better option so i can wake up for the sunday morning game
