    Im around 212 at wake up lately. I think I might just go with 220 for this meet instead of cutting. Wish I knew you were pulling today. I wouldve came over and joined you. I thought everyone trained yesterday instead. Nice numbers today too,especially when not feeling 100%.

    Well with Chris' final and your work, the lifts didnt quite match up, but was good to see ya before the holidays big guy. Looked tired, no offense, but seemed like the stress and everything kinda caught up. Lifted hard, now get your rest.


    PS - I think you could do the cut to 198, and bring an extra bag of beef jerky to take care of any problems gaining your water weight back lol

    Your 475's and 500x5 were easy as hell today. You do look stressed to sh1t but you had a ton of strength in you today. Even the box squats looked strong. Impressive! You coming tomorrow for upper accessory?

    True I could have probably pulled more with better ankle support. No worries, we always have saturday Vizzy.

    Thanks Tone. They didn't feel easy that's for sure. Hopefully I'll get used to pulling full range in the next week or two and add some weight to those sets. Boxs squats felt like hell but easy... idk what's going on haha. I guess when you're weak, you're strong, and when you're strong, you're weak. Yup I'll be there going to do some floor press', tri accessory, hit my lats, and do some light shoulder work/rehab stuff.

    Yeah I'm alittle run down. The fact I haven't been able to sleep much isn't helping that's for sure. Once this up coming week is over I'll have a few days off to relax and get myself back together. I feel like I've been on auto-pilot the past couple days. I guess I'll see where my weight goes after the holidays and make my decision then. See you in a few weeks.

    Thanks Timmy. We'll see about the gear, my new suit comes any day now from Ken Anderson, that should fit fine and my briefs are still tight. My shirt felt alittle loose the other day, usually it's a fight to get in and this time I slipped in with little trouble.

    I hate cutting for meets but I can't justify not doing it for some reason. It's kinda instilled in my brain from B.J.J. a few years back. If you ever want to come train just give me a call and see if I'm around. I'm pretty sure I dropped my number to you in your log but if not let me know and I'll get it to you. Thanks man, can't wait to get some rest next week. I've got 2, 4day weekends coming up which are much needed.

    Good day. Not much more else to say. Hips and back are sore as ****. Hopefully I'll recover in time for saturday. Looks like I might push my meet back to Feb. 21st. There's a closer meet and it'll give me more time to break in my new suit.

    Felt like hell today. Joints are a mess, I've had no healthy fats in almost a week and been eating tons of cookies. No ones fault but my own. 3-5 hours tops the past few days, poor diet and lots of snow shoveling. I've got 2, 4 day weekends coming up and plan on catching up on some sleep and my diet. The guys did good today, Tim killed it with a raw 500x2 squat.

    It is so much fun to watch your strength grow daily Sammy. You're in a really good place growth and strength wise right now. That 500 looked easy as hell last night. I think 2010 is gonna be a huge year for you.

    Thanks Tone. I guess I have to be happy with my day yesterday but it wasn't what I wanted. I can't wait untill I'm feeling good and see what happens but like they say "when you're strong you're weak and when you're weak you're strong."

    Pretty damn strong for a day you weren't really feeling it. Enjoy those 4 day weekends kid, you've definitely put your dues in the last few months..time to relax and take a breath. Get everything in line again, and then go back at it.


    Edit: I have your singlet washed and folded here, in case you were wondering about it. Whens your next meet again??

    I think that was it for today. Might be leaving something out, I forgot to punch everything in my phone today. I was a little pre-occupied mentally today. Had fun with chris. He had a good day too, fixed his box squats today and he looked solid.

    I hope everyone has a Merry Chirstmas (or whatever you celebrate) and a happy new year. Eat like kings and don't forget to relax. Be safe, and watch out for the nuts driving on the roads. Hope Santa brings everyone bench shirts, squat suits, bands and chains. Oh and a mono lift would be nice ;-)
