I wish my shoulder would stop hurting so bad every time I squat.

So I think I broke my hand…

I need to stop going to hardcore shows.

921 notes "Straight Edge spoke to me because of my total hatred towards the drinking and “being stupid” environment I encountered in high school. I was never anti-sex or anti-booze. We were really anti-obsession because that’s all I saw from people around me-obsession with god, religion, money, drugs, alcohol. All this shit to me was meaningless. It’s what pissed me off the most. These people were nothing that I wanted to be about. My reaction was to use everything in my power to tell everyone what was up.
Back when I was a lot more violent, I had this thing: anytime anybody fucked with me when they were drunk, I would hit ‘em. I felt, “Just because you drink doesn’t give you license to be a fucking asshole.” Most people still think being drunk is an excuse, but, hey, you’re bringing that reality on me, and I’m not drunk, asshole. I’m not getting in your space, and I’m not interfering with your freedom or your path."

I know I’ve already posted a bunch of powerlifting stuff today, but I think you guys should read this article by Greg Nuckols in defense of smart accessory work and, essentially, powerbuilding.

“Big Paul Wrenn, an underrated yet all time great powerlifter was outstanding relative to his strength levels and achievements. His 975 squat at the 1981 Senior National Powerlifting Championships and 2342 Total were marks that others chased, the latter for many years. This photo from one of the Tennessee State Championships of the mid-1970’s demonstrates more that was typical of that era than not: lifters in wrestling singlets, plywood platforms, “home made” tire rim squat racks, and a lifter, in this case Paul himself, as a former Olympic lifter, turned Odd Lifter, and finally Powerlifter.” [Source]

I’ve been bad at updating this thing as of late, mostly due to finals happening right when my cycle ended, but this was the end of my 10 week cube cycle.  Ended with big PRs in all 3 lifts, I think partially due to my last time “maxing” was when I was injured.

545 squat, previous PR 470

305 bench, previous PR 275

515 deadlift, previous PR 463

I enjoyed focusing on weak points in accessory work, seeing as prior to this I had run Smolov and Sheiko, which tend to include less accessory work overall.  As of now, I plan on continuing the Cube and I want to compete in 2 USPA meets in the near future, one in Thousand Oaks, CA in late April and one in Santa Barbara, CA in June.
