    GF's "CS Goes Pubic" Log

    19/06/07 OHP OHP 95x5 115x5 135x5 165x1 195x4,4,4 <-- PR NG PULLUPS (BW@253) superset BAND FACEPULLS BWx6 +70x3,3,2,2 +45x5 DIPS (BW@253) +65x8,10,10 <-- cramp on first set DB HAMMER CURLS superset DB ROLLING EXTENSIONS 60x8,8,8 60x12,8,8 Pretty pumped about the workout and OHP PR. I am also positive that was a PR on dips, but I don't really track those since they're never a main movement thus hard to track in a reasonable manner. I really ran into a wall there with the pullups. I think that coincides with my heavier bodyweight, but I can't rule out the possibility I'm hitting a wall due to adaptation, diet, or some other such limit. I am feeling a bit more worn down after this workout than usual, but it's not a big deal right now. I still think I want to do one more full week of normal workouts before dropping into a deload, but we'll see how things turn out. Doc ok'ed me to return to squatting and deadlifting. I might dabble in squats since I was still able to do those while injured last time, and then maybe wait on deadlifts until I have my 1 month followup with my ortho. We shall see. Was gonna go out tonight, but I'm really wiped out from the week I had. I feel like retiring quietly and maybe giving it a shot tomorrow. I had been casually seeing this girl since March/April until recently. We always had a great time, and she was extremely beautiful, but I never really thought of her as a long-long term thing for reasons I dont feel like sharing in public. As it turns out, what I thought was the situation was somehow orders of magnitude worse. I just found out Sunday. Since then, I've broken things off with her and am back to being truly single. I'm pretty upset about the whole ordeal, and I'm questioning some of the choices I've made that led me to end up in the situation I was in. But I know situations like these can be part of the dating world, especially when you date outside of a school or work situation where you at least know a little something about the person and where they're coming from. I've just sort of avoided dating at work, but I think I've found an approach that will be reasonable, measured, and not untoward.

    Giving keto a try for FM purposes and while (on day 8 ) I am sleepy (as opposed to tired) and ravenous (as opposed to 'hungry'), I feel pretty good overall. Frequency is down a bit as I adjust, but managed my regular am giant sets and a max effort kb carry/max rep kb goblet squats this afternoon and hit PBs on both (200 lbsx150m; 100 lbs x 25 reps).

    Plenty! Stop me if I've told you this one before... It has actual heavy metal in it, not like that crypto-emo music you listen to https://youtu.be/414mrPgK5Yk

    Me too! Especially to see that secret radar base where they could detect and identify incoming missiles

    Short term mood boosting effects of partial sleep deprivation in the second half of the night? Sleeping less than four hours always gives me a short-term mood lift. Not repeatable or sustainable, but it's there.

    The Sleep Thread 😴

    Some day we'll have to meet up for a beer so I can hear about that ML startup. ResMed bought the Zeo IP. They didn't actually do anything with it, as far as I can tell. I had the original Zeo, but I never used the website. They were a hacker-friendly startup at the time, so they offered a custom firmware update that emitted the raw data out of a hidden serial port on the back of the device. I just logged that directly. I still have months of timestamped sleep waveforms from over a decade ago. Might be interesting to compare them against my current waveforms, but really I'd need some analysis software to make it work. As for the Zeo hardware: It would trivially easy to make a battery-powered, bluetooth EEG headband prototype these days. Could probably piece most of it together from reference designs on Texas Instruments' website, really. The real problem is lack of real-world utility. I could look at my Zeo score and think, "That looks about correct for how I feel". It didn't really provide any actionable info, though. I still enjoyed it.

    You know, I was remarkably not exhausted after getting just a few hours of sleep. Not sure exactly what to credit that to but I'll take it.

    Nothing pisses me off more than someone grabbing the bar when they shouldn't.

    The Sleep Thread 😴

    Regarding modafinil: F that stuff. It ruins sleep. I don't care what the study shows. Maybe being on modafinil allowed better sleep than being on coke, but being on neither is best. I got some RXed when i was switching shifts for work. Bad idea. It kept building up until it felt toxic even with smaller and smaller doses. Kinda like buprenorphine but in a different way. My jaw was constantly clenched and even when I had the opportunity to sleep 8hrs, that shit would cause me to not be able to sleep more than 4hrs. And it masks the fatigue, but my body started showing the signs. I lost more and more weight, had headaches, and felt shaky from fatigued nerves. My poor jaw was sore from being clenched all the time. Remember, my dosing was tapered down until i found that 25mg was even too much and decided to stop it. Studies don't show everything. If you're of a certain personality/behavior type, this stuff doesn't mesh. I'm kinda hyper already, move a lot, dominant personality. Modaf was a horrible combo for each of those traits.

    OK SO CAN I HAVE MY LOG BACK? lol but actually, upon reflection I've actually experienced bouts of acid reflux here or there, but usually very mild. I might need to be more vigilant, however, especially with my family's medical history with cancer. Just about everyone on both sides have had it, though my mom's side of the family have survived it and lived -almost excessively- long lives. 19/06/04 BENCH PAUSE BRO PRESS (legs elevated) 135x5 185x5 225x5 265x1 305x4,4,4 BRO CGBP 285x5,6 <-- got a Tom spot on this last set/rep BRO CG SPOTO PRESS 245x8,8 SEATED NAUTILUS ROW superset BAND PULLAPARTS x 20 3PPS+25x12,12,10,10,10 EZ PREACHER CURLS superset INCLINE EZ TRI EXT 90x10,9,8 90x12,12,12 Had a pretty good workout today although my gym was overrun by complete fools and idiots today. The kind of form and the type of exercises, or "exercises," I saw people doing looked like the shit that goes on those annual reddit /fitness cartoons that stopped being released recently. And then I get this guy to spot me on the bench for close grip, and as I'm grinding my last rep and, with very positive bar motion, and close to locking it out, he full grabs the bar less than 2" from lockout after I tell him to not touch the bar at all unless I give the command. This fucking motherfucker, I swear. I ended up pressing it out of the rack a few times to make up for it, because I definitely had the rep and am counting it in my log. I'm pretty pumped about trying 315 next week. I don't feel I'm hitting a wall, and my joints feel great, so I just dont feel the need to deload. I think it's just as simple as I can handle a lot more abuse on the bench without heavy squatting and deadlifting.
