Ex contacted me on Saturday, asking if I wanted to have lunch. I probably wasn't clear enough in the letter I left with the house key, but I reiterated that I had to go zero contact for a while, which she seemed to be fine with. We'd also been using the same Netflix Instant account, which I didn't have an issue with until recently when I found out about the guy. She's into a show right now, and since she's a creature of habit, you can bank on her watching at least a couple each night. So in a way, it was unavoidable for me to go on Netflix and not be aware of whether or not she was watching. I went to watch something online Saturday and noticed there was like seven straight episodes of SNL that had been "watched" Friday night and into Saturday, which likely means she just had the guy over and they just let that shit run until it turned off. So I mentioned she should probably just get her own account for now, so I don't see that stuff. She told me "fair enough," but then I noticed she continued on with her show that night and last night. Earlier today, I just selected the option to log the account out of all devices, since she doesn't have the PW.
I didn't think much of it, since it wasn't an ill-intent move. Got a text from her a bit ago saying something along the lines of, "Don't worry, I'm enjoying the first free month of my own account." So I'm assuming she thinks I'm just trying to be a dick, even though I asked her to get her own a few days ago. Anyway, I didn't respond, and deleted the message right away.
I got some food poisoning or some shit Saturday night. Been a gawd awful mess since, laying in bed with a super high fever and shitting\vomitting every hour. I'm like so depleted of water and muscle tone that I hardly look like I lift. Hopefully kick this in a few days and get back to getting asthetic.
Most people take a bit longer than 6 months to get to a 250lb bench.
Most people don't care about 1rm either, and they shouldn't.
Ah, maybe for people who were athletic throughout highschool and continues to lift weights through college. Then 1,000lb total is obtainable within 6 months of focusing on strength. But for the general public who just decides to lift, or maybe who has tried and failed at lifting for years, that total is going to be some work.
Having a background in sports from a young age makes a huge difference in terms of how fast you'll develop your strength. Those who are athletic almost always have a much easier time learning good technique, coordination and have can utilize all their power (is it called firing of motor units?).
But yeah, if you have a solid background or are blessed in some way, you can def reach 1000 lbs within half a year.
There's one guy at my gym who's like 17 y/o, weight maybe 160 lbs @ 5'10 or so, and he squats 225 for 5 and deadlifts close to 350 after 3 months. He squatted 200 after 3 weeks.
