#When you talk to a lady lifter you haven’t spoken to in a year and her voice is like 2 octaves deeper than you remember.

This is becoming a regular occurrence in my life in this industry….

You get one chance to flip that ace card, plan strategically.

The power I feel underneath my suit, from my own body, is a kind that I have never been able to generate or acquire from any other practice in my life. It is so systemic that it has circulated to the weaker branches of my being and I find myself stronger in things completely unrelated to barbells.

Your lifting less what's going on?

Yes and no. I’ve significantly cut down on the number of exercises I do, but things have been staying in the 80-90% 1rm range. With the lifestyle change that working a 9-5 career track job has brought about, my stamina in the gym is compromised. I try to stick to 2-4 exercises and give them all I’ve got. I’ve been averaging 3 training days per week. I’d like to get a 4th day in now and again because I have a meet coming up.

But yeah. Now that i have other things to do, I can’t just live to train. If I did, I’d be doing a serious disservice to my career and overall life development.

Inb4 some Canadian fitness chump tells all of Facebook how holy and good s/he’s been over the Thanksgiving weekend. Thank you for being so humble and courageous and for venturing into the land of abnormal psychology for those of us who are not worthy.

It’s dieting and nutrition, folks. Not fucking philanthropy. Get over yourselves.
