Make your first attempts super easy so you at least get a score on the board and build some confidence...

 

That's the plan, I guess. But deadlift is always unpredictable and I'm not used to pausing heavier weights on bench.

a) Don't bomb.

 

I will try.

b ) Why choose?? One each ;-)

 

And switch them between attempts?

I don't have a problem with this... I switched crew/knee socks, not between attempts but between events!

My thoughts exactly

 

It's getting tempting, and it's not like they don't already know that I'm weird!

I'll have to do that anyway. Put on knee sleeves for squat, take them off for bench, and then change socks and shoes for deadlift.

Now there are two thoughts mostly on my mind:

1) I worry that I will bomb the competition (especially bench or deadlift).

2) I'm not sure if I should bomb it in Batman socks or rainbow socks.

 

1) Win this freaking thing!

2) Wear both. You'll look even more eccentric and awesome after you win!

 

Fun fact: Rainbow Batman is a real thing.

Time to practice paused bench? 

 

I'll practice the commands next week! :D 

It's the heavier weight that scares me.

I totally read this as "Rainbow Batman and Robin ARE a 'thing'" and my brain went there...can't undo it now.

LOL my spotify just did the weirdest thing ever...

Apparently, when a playlist ends it starts playing similar songs. But the song that started right after the end of the playlist (Elements by Tom Lehrer) has almost no connection to the playlist's style.

 

I listen to such obscure artists that sometimes Spotify's "suggested song" is nowhere near what I'm listening to and also nowhere near what I like.

It's a problem I find with many of these algorithms, they think "hey, if you liked this obscure song, just think how much you'll like this SUPER POPULAR ONE." Also, Spotify is trying to force me to listen to Ed Sheeran - IT'S NOT GONNA WORK, SPOTIFY!!!

I think it's also about money. "Wanna hear the song you want? Get Spotify premium." I've been using Amazon Music more since I have Prime.

Week 4 - Day 5

 

 

Goal 1: Lose the holiday and the illnesses' weight.  I ate like an asshole again.

 

Goal 2: No excuses. Rest day.

 

Goal 3: Sleep.  Did it.


Bonus Goal: Deutsch. Didn't.

 

Bonus (in general): Don't drop out.  Haven't yet! 

 

 

So, yesterday was a full day. Too busy at work, then I left in a hurry to go to some stores before closing time because I needed to buy a birthday present. Right after that, I met with a friend (and was late because it took me too long to decide what I'd buy). Then home for dinner and making last minute arrangements with the friend who visited today. (Today was a very busy day too. I'll probably write about it tomorrow, if there's time.) I'm calling today (Saturday) the last day of the challenge though.

 

Bad news is that deadlift sucked today. I sent a message to my coach asking if we could concentrate a bit more on it after the competition and he agreed. I could probably go heavier if I yolo'd my form and the coach kinda green-lighted yolo for the competition but I'm not sure I want to do it. I've been trying for so long to get the form right that I'm more worried about form regressing than the weight being lighter.

Good news is that bench didn't suck. I managed all 8 sets of 3 at 45kg (which I had failed about a month ago) and then did a single at 45kg to commands (training buddy decided to go for an evil pause) which looks like it'd get white-lighted. I'd very much like to go 45-50-52.5kg but I'm not sure if 50kg would go up after a pause.

Week 4 - Day 6

 

 

Goal 1: Lose the holiday and the illnesses' weight. Have no clue.

 

Goal 2: No excuses. Did as much as possible with the exception of accessories that I didn't do because I wanted to minimise time at the gym.

 

Goal 3: Sleep.  Did it.


Bonus Goal: Deutsch. Didn't.

 

Bonus (in general): Don't drop out.  Haven't yet! 

 

 

Not sure what to write. The weekend has been very busy. 

Since I haven't dropped out yet (despite considering it every time I'm at the gym) I'm considering this challenge to be successful! (Now I only need to not drop out for less than a week)
