    Ugh cant find a decent gym in the area besides where I'm at (No AC, sucks in summer). I don't think I could lift at the YMCA or some place like that, old YMCAs are cool but this one is a swanky christian re-build. Then theres stuff like rapid fitness, but everyone I've been to has something wrong with it like no pullup bars. Guess I will stay at this place and just cut my volume on very hot days.

    Wish my job was more stable or I'd move into a place with a garage and just go that rout. Plus I would have an area to work on a Nova.

    Fuck my weak wrists, couldn't even do DB rows today the pain is so bad. Every so often they get "tweaked" and then feel weak and painful for a few days to a week, never know exactly what caused it just seems to happen. Managed to get through a back workout by strapping it up and doing some lighter higher volume stuff. Chest tomorrow, gonna have to come up with a high volume low wrist stress routine totally different to my usual one.

    i went to a different gym in town after my topless flexing bro experience the other day. pretty standard stuff except they had a dungy-looking back room filled with bars, plates, racks, chains, and rings, so that was pretty cool. i was the only one in there when 3 dudes came in, started foam/pvc/lacrosse ball rolling, doing banded shoulder dislocations and rotator cuff warmups. i was stunned; i thought these things only existed on the internet.

    Never eaten meat. Grew up with it cause of my folks, and now I just like the lifestyle more. I don't feel like I'm missing anything, meat's never looked or tasted appetizing when I've tried it, so I only eat it when there's nothing else available. As a result, I also clean bulk. I've filled out without gaining too much weight (like 5lbs maybe), which is awesome.

    I always warm up my rotator cuffs on press day. Is that not a thing?

    I know a crossfit woman who is probably the most aesthetic female I've seen in years. She's absolutely stunning. Often wears very fitted clothing (i.e., sleeveless dresses, sleeveless tops and skirts), and looks amazing in them. She's very well cut, yet, looks very feminine.

    just scored one of those york home multigym thingies for free on kijiji. i dont care for the fly portion or the seat, so i'm thinking of cannibalizing the cable stack for a lat pulldown/tricep station and maybe see if i can make a high/low cable setup out of it. will probably use the arms/handles for some kind of t-bar row if i can.

    i wish there was an ikea hackers for gym equipment... surely i can come up with something good here

    "performing movements most guys can't do "

    fucking LOL

    standard crossfit superiority complex


    this venture, while noble, is completely pointless due to the odds of success being infinitesimally small.

    Having some pain on the inside of my hips near my glute. Need to get a baseball and roll on it. Going to try high bar atg squats today, being asian I have dat der mobility so they should be fine. Expecting to use 100ish kg.


    edit: went surprisingly well, worked up to 120kg for a double in a belt then did like 20 sets of 2 with 100kg no belt and a pause to work on technique. Could probably get 120ish without a belt and maybe 140 with one now. Sets got easier as I did more. Ended up doing 5x100kg with a 3 second pause at the bottom of each rep. Dat feel when your glutes hit your ankles, feels good man.
