Interesting day…

I knew it would be a different sort of day (no workout)

Topics: Democrats are dreadful at politics. I think this says it well:


What I seem to see from the left is that they think calling some policy “racist”, “sexist”, “misogynistic’ etc. is enough to sink said policy with voters, and saying a policy is “anti-racist”, “pro-woman”, “trans-friendly” is enough to seal the deal.

I suppose that might work on a college campus, and perhaps, to a lesser degree with HR. But it doesn’t work with voters.

1 December: not so flying start

Well, the piriformis is injured..not badly so it is back to square 1, with lots of stretching, hip hikes, etc.

I designed this..tingles started in first mile and became mile pain at about 2.5-2.6 miles; never bad. So I rolled, hip hikes, etc.

I am helping someone out tomorrow so I worked extra today:

I do love the walk home in this weather right after the sun goes down; beautiful sky. That mask is from the company that made my new steel weight plates. I sure wish I were strong enough to warrant buying more new plates. But I am not.

Bradley Men are playing Judson, a NAIA team. 10 players have seen the court, most for significant minutes.

I think Bradley will win; huge difference in size, speed, quickness, etc.

This year, you pretty much take what you can get in terms of games; this is an in state school.

Out of break

And we still have a week of classes; I am taking advantage.

Weights: pull ups: 50 reps; included 2-3 sets of 10, 5’s, singles (COLD)

Did rotator cuff and hip hikes too.

bench: 10 x 134, 2 x 184, 3 sets of 5 x 169 (all with pauses)
trap bar squats: 10 x 134, 10 x 134 deficit, 10 x 167 deficit

trap bar rows: 3 sets of 10 x 134

shoulder presses: 3 sets of 10 x 44 seated, supported, 10 x 88 barbell (same)

push ups 40, 30, 10

head stand: flipped then did it ok..not quite steady enough.

Workout: 80 minutes or so.
Me: during the pull up portion (cold), bench press/trap bar squat portion, and after push ups…this was a predawn to morning workout.
