    For Whom the Bells Toll

    Being in possession of KBs is great, I don't have an excuse. Other than, damn. Really 3 months of no regular exercise and my HR shoots up and I'm exhausted for the rest of the day. 100 kb swings, 50 push-ups, and 50 curls. 15 minutes or whatever 3 songs was.

    07/03/20 OHP WEEK 4 OHP 95x8 115x6 135x5 165x5 <-- RPE 9.5 155x7,6 <-- "" 135x9 RPE 10 ** SMITH JM PRESS (3D machine, heavy barbell) 90x4x10 BO BB ROWS 225x12,12,10 NAUTILUS PULLOVER 210x10,10,9 CYBEX SEATED TRI PUSHDOWN 59.5x10,10,8 <-- 4 second eccentrics As I mentioned before I had an intense day on Wednesday, followed by a sleepless night, so yesterday was off the table for lifting. I was even having problems doing some basic tasks and lifting heavy but lightweight things in the lab, like a centrifuge bucket that's about 15-17lbs. I wanted something a little aggressive for the arms/triceps, but I was lazy, so I opted for eccentrics on the tricep extension machine. I'm still feeling it. I had a great workout, but something weird happened in that I developed a pain around the elbow after overhead pressing. I am not sure what that's about, if I did something wrong on OHP or if it's a sign of something else. It also affected me during the last set of barbell rows (not the reason I stopped) and the pullover at the very end range of motion (partially contributed to me stopping, but mostly because I was rounding my upper back). Nothing else to really report. Had a nice day and am planning on squatting tomorrow in the A.M. with a friend.

    Standing Desks Overrated

    Seems like a reach. I think people with good baseline cognitive performance are more likely to choose higher-paying desk jobs than manual labor jobs. As for standing desks: I found myself to be more alert when I was standing vs. sitting. Being in a chair makes it easier to relax. Being on your feet means you're at least minimally active, which seems to keep the brain awake.

    This stuff is good. I've actually been eating their "power cups" which are 10g heavier and consequently have a little more of everything. Makes a decent, quick hot breakfast. Remarkably, they have managed to put pea protein in something and not make it taste like peas...

    Normally I just respond back to these types of requests with an attachment and the link to sci-hub. Unfortunately, I can't locate this study. Tried using google image search, too, and nothing.

    I feel you. At the same time, I was having the same thoughts about even assembling an instagram (though again, the point was to allow me to view ig pages), but I figured it's mine, so I'll put up whatever I want. If people like it cool, if not, fair enough.

    Don't be looking for any real content from following me. I think it's been almost 2 years since I posted something original. I kind of miss having something to post, but alas...unless people want to watch a fat sweaty man do KB swings until death, there's not much to publish. Be careful out there, Rolly. Don't need to get dead for a thrill...

    lol I saw! I will hit you back soon if I didn't already. I almost died today hanging out at the river with some friends, lol. I had had a long day already with an intense squat workout with some dumb cardio thrown in the mix, but while at the river today I asked a friend to show me a rock you could climb to to then jump out into the river. Well, it was hard to get to, especially for a big guy, swimming upstream some rapids. I jumped once and that was great, but the second time I got pulled away and under by an eddie, tumbled over and through some boulders, and hit my head on one. I was able to catch myself on a different boulder to stop and recoup myself. But my knee feels like dog, and I bet my head will hurt tomorrow. Was a good learning experience at least. Also, it was a tremendous amount of fun. I do feel old now, but I do have to remind myself I had an intense squat workout and need to now consume an absolutely vast amount of calories.

    Last few days have been fun. I've been on PTO, and I've gone fishing, and seen some more of our beautiful county parks with my family. Didn't catch shit, but that's OK. Good, clean, budget-friendly fun. Worked out today. 17 total sets: S1-S9: 26 reps, 48 second rests S10-S14: 26R, 55-60 second rests S15-S16: 25R, 60 second rests S17: Bonus set! 16R 430 total reps in 17 sets. 25:45 total time. Just shy of 15K lbs swung. Avg HR 125, Max 156 My RHR for the last week has been from 58-63. My guess is that this is a beneficial side-effect of (mostly) lower insulin or inflammation or mass, or all three. Weighed 322 in the afternoon yesterday, and predictably after 2 days around my wife and kids with no structure (work), I've fallen off a bit and yesterday I had carbs all afternoon long. My fasting glucose was (predictably) higher than even before I went keto/fast as 136. I've only ever seen 130s a handful of times in a few months. I guess the system doesn't like swinging back and forth like that. lol I see my fat doc on Monday, so I'll need to rein it in for the next few days to get a good weight for her.

    My headlamp is still on it's way but a small red LED flashlight I purchased as well arrived today. It has a high and low power setting so I set it to low and held it several inches from each eye for three minutes while I watched a Youtube video with the other eye. It was not uncomfortable, and there was no acute effect on my vision except a purplish color shift at the center of my vision that persisted for about a minute after exposure to the light...I suspect some sort of negative afterimage effect due to the exhaustion of photopigments. Until the headlamp arrives, I'll just include this in my already weird morning ritual of a cup of coffee while my ear is connected to a TENS unit....lol

    I have no complaints about the total price-but they only go to 44, and I could duct-tape a cheap dumbbell to my current KB and get the same for much cheaper. I found a 50 at NY Barbell for $65 or 75...(site says $65 FREE FREIGHT, but it charged me a 9.50 freight charge...).

    20/07/01 DEADLIFT WEEK 4 HIP ABDUCTION something x 2x20 DEADLIFT 225x5 315x4 405x1 hook grip 455x1 straps 500x1 <-- RPE 9.5 500x1 <-- RPE 10 PIN SSB GM 225x3x8 GOBLET SQUAT 100x10,10,6 <-- back rounded hard on last one and a little sciatica in the piriformis, quit REVERSE HYPER 40x3x12 considering changing these to swinging next cycle AB WHEEL kneelingx3x12 So I put together an instagram. So far putting shit up slowly but I figure I might as well modernize myself. Also, it got real annoying to peep other people's instagrams without an account. I dont even think you can watch videos as effectively anymore, right? Onto lifting, deadlifts felt good up until 500. My hips shot up pretty hard on my first attempt. It was obvious on video so I attempted it again to see if I could fix it by focusing on it. It was worse. Way worse. So I didn't attempt a third lol. A couple of attractive girls were taking pics and filming themselves around my area. I started talking to them and had a fun conversation. One was sending some strong vibes my way. Got their names but no numbers - figured I wanted to move on with my workout and could leave some for later. Had a great workout session. I wouldn't worry too much about the sciatic pain during goblet squats. A couple of things happened in between to explain this to me, including a back stretch I shouldn't have done. I just wanted to play it safe so I ditched the weight when I started having rounding occurring. I'll be adding an extra workout day moving forward. Arms. I am just completely displeased by the disproportionate development of my pecs, back, and delts, but having such relatively small and ill defined arms. Outside of my back, my arms were the thing that took off the fastest when I started lifting, and tbh I know my arms were bigger during my first year of lifting than they are now. The one thing that sucked is I slept about 3 hours last night. I just couldn't go to bed. I even took out my most potent strains to smoke and was wide-eyed in bed. Ah well. The cost of doing business.

    I went camping with a colleague years ago and I had never seen him in glasses but I guess I knew he wore contacts. The first night, he took out his contacts and put on his glasses and his eyes looked like they were in the next county his glasses were so thick! When I commented he said these were the "new" type of lenses that were about 20% thinner and lighter than his old lenses...

    I just bought this and my plan is simple. At night, while I am brushing my teeth, turn off the bathroom light and use the mirror to shine the red light into my eyes for two minutes.

    I'm at a place on vacation where they have KBs. I've been doing my swings. Also, I just bought 4 different sizes (all the sizes that they have) Beware, shipping is very expensive. Goldens Cast Iron

    You're the only one doing the full 500 with the set/rep scheme in the program, but I'm still swinging, and still enjoying it, and honestly, reaping the rewards. My RHR has dropped from 70-73 to 58-63. So significant. I also went keto, lost 15 pounds since starting, and fast 16-18 hours per day, which probably influences it maybe more than the cardio, but still. It all started with swinging a kettlebell...
