  2. I just love getting unsolicited exercise advice from family members who have no idea what they're talking about... Why yes, actually, you can do squats past 90.

      Yup. He told me not to lift with a runny nose because 15 years ago in high school he did drum corps with a cold and got sick for months, and my poos, fragile body couldn't possible handle lifting with the sniffles.

      You can imagine the look I gave him. This didn't even happen in a gym, by the way - I don't think he's set foot in one for those same 15 years...............

      Dude got sicker because he didn't work his body, he let it get weak and brittle. I swear... I can't get past some people's idiocy.

      Whoooo! I just started my second whole30 today!

  4. It always seems to take me until my 4th or 5th set of deadlifts before I remember I'm only supposed to do one. Oops.

  5. New 1-rep max for squats! 150#, which is about 110% of my BW.. still got a long way to go, but it's an encouraging milestone! :D

  6. Arrived at the gym for my regular workout and there was a new trainer there offering a free session. Don't mind if I do! Spontenaeity FTW!

  7. What's that? None of my t-shirts fit anymore? Well, I guess that'll make it easier to clear out my wardrobe...

  9. Traveling for the next 2 weeks. The plan is to get as many free trials at gyms as possible. Challenge accepted!

      Bah, we wound up working out one day and going snowboarding the next... my body was so wrecked after that I didn't get any more gym time in. :( Once my muscles had recovered enough I came down with a horrible stomach bug that kept me in the bathroom. Now I'm recovering and can't wait to go lift....

    4. Why not?

      Why not?

      Sorry to hear that!

  10. There's a big football game on today, eh? Maybe that means the gym will be empty and I won't have to wait for the squat rack...

      I like that two states that have legal pot are getting together for the "Super Bowl..." It makes me giggle.

  11. Thinking it's time to up my game. Higher weight, fewer reps, perhaps?
