    Nicely done! Your first huge platform and you got to write about soft-core porn!

    How did this come about? (the gig, not the porn)

    thanks everyone!

    should be a once a day thing for the near future and maybe more after that, who knows. and I'm getting paid. haven't gotten paid to write in a year.

    on a fitness note, did the movement prep and the prehab from the preliminary workout of core performance today and walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes because it's my rest week and I wanted to listen to my ipod.

    weighed in at 221. no fucking clue where that weight came from. given that I was a fairly lean 188 two summers ago--and that's where I want to be again bf% wise--there's no way in bloody hell that I've got 33 lbs to lose. none. I don't even know if I've got 20 to lose. I guess this means that I actually have gained some muscle.

    thanks

    and to answer Michael's question, it came out of nowhere. I didn't apply for anything or even knew that they were looking for writers. got an email last week and went "oh wow..."

    today I did the movement prep, prehab and physioball routine from the intermediate prep phase.

    same as yesterday minus the physioball work

    I'll probably show up to the gym tomorrow to dick around and do some movement prep or something

    there was a 20something girl today--who I've seen before--who came into the weight room to lift after she got off the treadmill. ok, whatever, she usually does ab work or something. not this time. she puts five or ten pounders on each end of the smith machine.

    then she fiddles with the height. ok, whatever. I'm doing my stuff in the area in front of the smith--the weight room is tiny--so I move out of the way because I don't want to be collateral damage because it's obvious she's up to something.

    she goes and gets the aerobic step and then the platforms that you use to make it higher. um... ok, this is getting good. gets up on the step and attempts to RDL. nope, too short, need more platforms. gets more platforms, decides that she's at the right height and continues, all while I'm mesmerized at her dumbassery.

    then without changing the weights or the height of the step, gets off the step, and then gets back on to do a bastardized bent over row.

    I would love to hear her rationale for this. probably in this month's issue of Woman's World or something.

    I dunno where she got that, but it sounds very creative. I always give extra points for creativity in the gym

    Since you're asking questions anyway - can you explain the bros who come in and spot each other's bench press - in the Smith machine!?!? Isn't the Smith built to be self-spotting?

    I'm (Not) An American Badass

    Monday February 8

    First day of core performance

    Movement Prep

    Shoulder Prehab

    T, W, L
    all @ 1x8

    Physioball pushups
    1x8

    PB reach roll and lift
    1x8

    Hip Prehab

    Weighted Glute Bridge
    1x8 @ 185

    Side Lying Ad/Abduction
    1x8


    Core Prehab

    Plank
    1x20 seconds

    Side Plank
    1x15 seconds

    Bike

    12 min on resistance 10 = 3.6 miles

    had to use the bike instead of the treadmill because all the treadmills were taken (go away already, new year's resolutioners) but I didn't mind it as much as I thought I would.

    still gotta foam roll. I'll be watching basketball for three more hours, so I've got plenty of time

    and I left cp at the gym for the second time in less than a year on Friday. figured it was gone again, but thankfully one of the trainers saw it and started reading it. so... she learned about core performance and I got my book back. win win

    hey, technically it's two new jobs

    I have a feeling that this spring is going to be the busiest one ever. not that I'm complaining too much, but I may actually need to keep a calendar
