    Meatballs with peppers and onions. Going to pasta sauce it next time for some more flavor. But goddamn, was this good. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Love sausage an peppers so that sounds pretty good, might give it a try. Needs more peppers bro.


    What is foam rolling and why do I need to do it? Maybe because im still very young I don't really have mobility issues or knots in my muscles. 6th day of training this week more prowler and squats, getting shredded.



    Did yoke walk instead of squats today. That feel when your outside and its pissing it down and you squat up a 200kg yoke and random bishes outside miring. Feel bad for my gym bro, triple body weight deadlift, 2.5 body weight squat like 1.5 bw bench, genuinely does not look like he lifts, maybe 11" arms?

    lengthy lifting rant follows

    had a new lifter come in today, first thing she did was confidently tell my coach that she's proficient in the lifts, just looking to iron out some techique issues as she's a trainer herself or some shit. Coach then proceeds to give her a bar and some technique plates to warm up and as it turns out she

    cant snatch
    cant clean
    cant jerk
    OHSs like a fucking hawk
    does not know that the OLs don't involve jumping off the platform with the barbell

    now at this point I already had my doubts, but nonetheless inquired and sure enough she was a crossfitter. Coincidentally she had been on a 3 month oly course (yes, 3 whole months lol) at the local xfit box, paid her tits off for that and been told by the trainers that she had excellent technique. This was also the course I considered when I was starting out last september... thank fuck I did my homework and chose a place that actually produces national level lifters.

    first I thought this girl had some nerve telling people she's a good lifter, but then I realized that it's not her fault. It's the shitty fucking coaches who taught her the wrong things, then said they were the correct way to go about things.. it sucks, for one because learned bad technique is EXTREMELY hard to shake in oly.

    It's one thing to be involved in a niche sport, but it really sucks when it gets shat on like this.

    e. also my rehbands smell like death no matter how hard I wash them

    no she was cool and all, but it'll take a while to unlearn all those bad reps. Just hatin on the coaches for teaching stuff wrong.

    I drink a little bit of diet soda with my dinner and usually a can or two of the low-carb Monster. But I also usually drink a gallon of cold green tea throughout the day. I find that if nothing else, it has a huge impact on keeping things regular.
