before you see the lights

Ok so Coach Dan John said it best, "Just Show Up". Seriously we can all sit here and blame the environment, available food choices, all that other fucking bullshit we like to pass off as excuses for being obese, out of shape, blah blah blah, no, Wake The Fuck Up, America. The reason you're out of shape is because you don't fucking show up. Here's the deal, if you don't want to train, you're not going to. All the support and admonition from your training partner isn't going to make a damn bit of difference if it's not in you to just show up.

I dunno, training and nutrition are very similar in that it's a little work to find something you like and works for you, but there are so many programs, websites, articles, etc out there now, find something you like AND works for you. Yeah it's a bit of work to figure out what works for you, but even beginner programs, find one you like that you know you'll stick to. That's the thing right, sure, there's alot of bullshit out there, but it's not hard to get opinions on things, the curse of the internet, right? Hell, go do P90X or Crossfit with some friends or something, and let that be your stepping stone. I dunno man, i don't get paid for this shit, so i don't know what to tell people:
  • Deadlift: 5x5 245
  • Good Morning: 5x5 185
  • Wukong: 5x5
  • Bentover: 4x8 165
  • Seated Row: 4x20 LaF 50
  • Kneeling Neutral: 4x0 LaF 87.5

Meant to only do kneelings, but i couldn't get the attachment so I worked in seated rows (only so i could steal the attachment when we were done, hehe). Ah well it worked. Now to continue eating copious amounts of food, it being sunday and all. Workout track o'the morn: Architecture Of Aggression - Megadeth.
