Being as competitive as I am has pros and cons. Here are one of the cons. My adductor is still not 100% and I’m doing what I can to get healthy. I just can’t help but think that others are getting stronger while I have to rehab and essentially stay stagnant. However, I know that injuries and rehab are a part of the sport. I encourage anyone with an injury to take their time with the rehab process to fully get healthy and not attempt to rush back. Healing duration is different for everyone, but make sure you’re taking enough time to be 100% ready to go. #TheStrengthGuys#DeNovoNutrition#SBDApparel
It’s funny that people think I’m only shooting for 250 next week. And on the flip-side of that boastfulness, I’d like to take another opportunity to extend my immense gratitude to the whole @thestrengthedge crew, and specifically @kozy_time. This guy hasn’t been doing much traditional training because of some nagging injuries, but he makes the trip to the gym 1-2 times a week just to spot me, be a super cool guy who appreciates great music, and just generally be a great frickin dude and an amazing support for this whole prep. Thank you Ben, it honestly means the world to me.

The kiwi is an amazing fruit full of nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin K, Vitamin E, Folate, and potassium. It also has a lot of antioxidants, and is a good source of fiber.
In addition, kiwis are high in serotonin. A study conducted on 24 subjects tested the effectiveness of the fruit when consumed nightly an hour before bed for 4 weeks. After the time period, waking time after sleep onset, and sleep onset latency were significantly decreased, and total sleep time and sleep efficiency were significantly increased.
(Asia Pac J Clin Nutr. 2011;20(2):169-74.)
The precursor to melatonin is serotonin, a neurotransmitter that itself is derived from the amino acid tryptophan. Within the pineal gland,serotonin is acetylated and then methylated to yield melatonin.
Try eating a kiwi or two before bed to see whether or not your sleep quality ends up improving! 🥝

PR Alert 🚨
I’ve been under the weather the last few days and hurt my wrist so saying I’ve been taking it easy is an understatement. That said, I’ve been itching to get a workout in.
I hit two PR’s today. First being 315x5. I was feeling good so I went for a one rep max and got in 375! PR’s are never the prettiest but always working to clean it up.
On another note, still not sure how I feel about the GHD. Takes up a lot of footprint in my single car garage for the 2 exercises I do on it. Getting a lat pull down machine soon so this may be on its way out. Still making up my mind.
Winter is here in full force and it can be so easy to bail on the gym, cuddle up with a hot water bottle & lots of munchies 😍 But will that get you any closer to where you wanna be? NOOOOPE. So if you missed your session today, if you're off track with food, and taking the piss with your goals...
GET BACK ON IT. Reset. Refocus. And remember why you started! Tomorrow is a new day and those goals ain't gonna chase themselves homies! 😎______________________________

Top single of 245 kg (540lbs) on paused deadlift fallowed by 4 sets (or was it 3, no one really knows) of 2 reps with 235kg paused. Form is pretty shit, but not the worst I've had either. Was planning on doing doubles with 240-245kg, but felt like shit, just like the whole last week. But I lived to tell the story and thats all that matters, will get it next time. All of the stuff I did this day:
1. Paused deadlift 245kg X 1, 235kg 4 X 2
2. Touch and go bench 110kg 4 X 5 RPE 8
3. Incline DB press 45kg 2x5, 40kg 3 X 6
4. Lat pulldowns 4x12
5. Horizontal hyperextensions 3 X 12 with 75kg
6. Hammer curls with fat grip 25kg 3x10
7. Lateral raises 12.5kg 3 x 12

Yesterday didn’t really go according to plan but will have that changed next time on deads my legs were still sore from Friday due to the length of time I went without legday. Nonetheless, I will do deads again this week to reclaim yesterday’s work.
2x1 with 405 plus resistance which felt like 500 at the top. (Video shown)
