Nope.

Despite getting 2.5 hrs of sleep, had a great gym sesh this morning. Squat is coming back up, making sure my form is on point this time. New gym is completely dead after like 8:30am, it's so nice.

Got some ON chocolate whey, shit's delish. Got some Xtend watermelon madness BCAA's so I can start on YC soon.

Heading down to Chi to check out Booth in a couple weeks, still gotta schedule my east coast visits, shit's gonna be fucking expensive - 4 days driving around Philly/NYC and up to Hanover.

Next week will match my 5RM of 605.

Hoping to hit 635-645 for a set of 5 at the end of my hybrid cycle, which in 6 weeks.

700 squat, here I come.

:wow:

UK deadlift record at my age class in the 105kg weight class in 260kg, tempted to try go up to 105 so I can try beat it. The 93 or whatever is below 105 is actually higher.

:lol:

no you don't you'll be there all night. i get friendly enough to speak to people between sets for 30 seconds and to ask for a spot. that's it.

at least a big set is done within a minute or two. running is unpleasant for an hour+.

Good point, I can get in and out in just over an hour now.

Yea, fair enough. I just feel like my knees and back are going to explode in the middle of high rep squat sets, also draining.

oh dont get me wrong, both are entirely different kinds of suck and equally unpleasant. i am just being bitter about running lol

Running does seem terrible. There's a guy here that has a 4:15 mile, squats 700, and pulls 800+. Not really sure how he manages that.

-never put something off if you can do it right this second instead
-schedule time for activities with friends instead of just "hanging out" and doing nothing. When I spend time with my gf it's at a set time and we know what we have planned so we don't waste time deciding
-maximize downtime. I RHET and misc on the metro or if I have nothing else to do at work. I don't bother with it during my actual free time. I also leisure read during down time.

This is good stuff.

Three more:
- write down your goals were you can see tem every day. Write it very specifically and in a short term tangible way. If you're goal is to lose weight, write "I will lose 5 pounds this month by a 500 daily calorie deficit", not "I will get shredded by summer".
- surround yourself with people that are far better than you in whatever you're pursuing. I think this is very overlooked. Not only does it make you work harder, but you will also learn a ton more than if you would be on you're own or with worse people and you can make great connections as these people are more succesful than you.
- limit the negative stuff in your life. This is not to be confused with occasionally doing boring work, but rather seeing people you don't like, activites you don't enjoy and generally exposing yourself to negativity.

Edit: jusy realized you wrote advice for time management while mine is more for reaching certain goals.

I ended my year long running hiatus yesterday by starting my workout with a 3-mile run. Started to enjoy it ever-so-slightly about halfway in. Still sucked overall, but it wasn't a struggle to accomplish, which made me happy.
