Real shit!

 

My sticking point is sleep. Why? because I dont want to sleep. There is no time for it. Its a waist of fucking time and a cruel joke by the gods. Those fuckers only give us a short time on this rock as it is, and then say, "Hey bitch, 1/3 of that time needs to be sleepy time, bitch!" Well, they will win in the end but until then, they can go fuck themselves!

 

I never get more than 6 hrs of sleep, and now, even if I do manage to to get to bed early, I still wake up in 6hrs. So, I'll say fuck the gods and I'll just fuck this pie the way it is. THEN, as I move towards the gym, I look around at the 101 unfinished projects around my house  I bum myself out even more. THEN, I take a breath and shut my stupid mind and listen..............nothing. Nothing but the sound of the breeze thru the trees and the occasional jet above. I look at the trees across the street that used to be a field. I look at carvings in the poplar tree that my son Mike carved. I look at my dog Munchy getting old now, and at the yard where a few other beloved dogs lie. I think to myself, "paradise", then apologize to the gods, lol. Then I'll pick something up and put it back down with less than 6hrs of sleep behind me, or I wont.

 

I no longer fear a slump. I'll embrace the next one. I fuck the slump, the slump don't fuck me!

 

We wont talk about aches and pains, lol.

Sorry..

10 swings, brief rest, then 20 swings x 7 rounds.

Totals out to about 210 swings.

I've got to start timing it in SOME function because my mind simply drifts off and I think it's taking me longer than it should.

What's the reasoning for breaking up the swings like that?

Yeah, good question and I'm not gonna pretend to understand the science behind it.

Here's the link to the outline of the program:

Thanks Pops.

I keep thinking of different ways to run the Kettlebell complex I'm running. I think I may need to invest in a 24/52# Kb and run it single handed until such time as I can get 2 ;)

Nice. Those squats might sting, but you are a beast with squats, so......

 

Your OHP is mighty and your rows are fleet!

 

Russian twists are under investigation.... :) :) :)

So, life took a bit of a detour last night.

Father in law suffered a rather severe 'cardiac event' last night.

Needless to say, the 430 alarm got snuffed and Friday's training went by the wayside.

The youngest has a Nike basketball tourney this weekend but I'm gonna take the old KB just in case i get some down time in the hotel room.

Still, it was a promising week of training.

Happy Memorial Day weekend to you all!

I hope everything's okay up there pops. A cardiac event doesn't sound too good.

Have a great weekend. Tip one up to those that never made it home.
