Just visited my grandpa in the hospital. He’s not doing so well. Pneumonia in seniors is pretty serious. As he held my hand whispering his words because he was unable to breathe properly, he told me about his brother Vernon who was a Trinidadian powerlifting champ…. Can’t finish typing this because my feels are leaking.

Supposed to be a DL day

But I really didn’t have the energy for it. I pretty much resolved long ago that if I’m not going to train what I’ve planned to train, I will at least do some form of squat. So…

Front squat 8x2 @ 155lbs; 3x5 @ 135lbs
Leg ext 5x12 

Felt satisfied with my sets. Gave it my everything. So considering my lack of motivation to Deadlift, I trained well today.

These are my favourites.

Juliana Malacarne just does NOT have a weak pose. From every angle she captures you. That pose on Karin Hobbs looks fantastic; but in every other shot, she’s lacking in her upper body. Take note of Mindi O’Brien’s legs this year. HUGE! And Toni West has been a long time favourite of mine. I loved her as a natural bodybuilder and I love her as an IFBB pro bodybuilder. Her shape and proportions are very pleasing.

Bench day

Put in a wicked bench session after work.

Paused bench 185lbsx2; 185lbs 2x1
Bench 135lbsx12
Incl DB bench 3x8
Ohp 3x5
Cable fly 3x12
Pendlay row 4x8 @ 135lbs row PR!
Chest supported row 3x12 with a pause at the top

Curls and bent over fly

Sounds like a lot but I was only in there for an hour. Ive been ditching the wrist wraps for the past couple of weeks (mostly due to forgetting to put them in my bag. I’ve been able to crank out the same level of performance without them).

DL 1700lbs

DL 255lbs 3x2
Fronties 1x3; 2x1 @ 135lbs + 44lbs of chain; 4x4 @ 135lbs

I’ve never felt so accomplished after having done only two things in the gym today. It was more than enough.

Edit: oh crap. I have a barbell hickey. Better wear a turtleneck and a giant scarf tomorrow.
