Thanksgiving Eve

November 26, 2016

We had a good Thanksgiving dinner. I had the guys make farolitos and we made a fire, so it was cozy. I love candles and had 50+ strewn about the living room. They highlighted my mythology table, dragonology table and wizard corner. I made some cute center pieces that were easy to make. We all contributed food, but I made an orange and honey glazed ham, bacon corn, honey glazed carrots, sweet potatoes with candied pecans, Jim Beam honey bourbon apple cider with cinnamon sticks, a smoked oyster and cheese platter, and toasted pistachio pudding. I think the pudding was a big hit. I had Mike torch it so the marshmellows, sliced almonds and turbinado sugar got toasted up. That was good!

Pumped n Layed Up

September 5, 2016

On the weekend intended to commemorate the American labor movement by celebrating, relaxing and taking off from work, I put in a whole hell of a lot of work! I loved every moment of it too, ‘cept that one particular second when my body said you have to stop with the heavy today! Now I’m layed up and tuckered out for tonight.

•○● In my car mirror ●○•

Today was deadz at 205 for my last two sets and done! Naw… just kidding… my body said stop, but I just moved on to accesories. That’s basically rest. Time to recoop for the new week. I had a good three days of training and I’m beat. I was so pround of the pump my arms got yesterday. The seated, one-armed, cable, hammer curls to the side had my forearms like woahhh!

Iron 5150: So Vilify Me

July 6, 2016

The 4th had me super excited about moving up even though I was on the floor at my sister’s (dead ass tired) for most of the night. My grip strength is increasing. I mean you can’t lift heavy if your grip strength lags right? I’m really strong on sumos, but I’ve been focusing on bringing my conventional deadlift up with a double overhand grip before resorting to a split grip. I feel like it’s the best plan and approach to bringing that lift up. You know? I’m training my weakest mental and physical links.

On Monday, I hit 185 conventional for 6 and so far had only done that using a sumo pull with a split grip. That has me excited because that means I may be able to attempt two plates and two 35s or a 205 deadlift this month! Come on!! At least for 1RM right? If I can get that, I’m on my way to 4 plates or a 225 dead within 2016! Looking back, I shutter to think of the day when I was too scared to even touch an Olympic bar. Thank God for the courage to change!!

Rob Siltanen once said…

•♦• Deadlift dat iron mallet baby!! •♦•

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

4th’s Meat Treat 

July 6, 2016

•••| After deadlifting, I need to eat meat! I cooked up some basil and cherry tomato pork to take to my sista’s place. The concoction was well recieved! |•••
