Just taking a moment to thank Mr. “Hard”. I am not sure I have ever worked as hard as I did last evening and this morning. I just kept hearing the same quote over and over. “You’ll get cut”. Now regardless of who you are, I am certain of this; you are either a complete moron, or a brilliant strategist. either way I win, because of “Hard”, and other babling idiots (mostly friends) I am more focused than I have been throughout this whole process. And the best part of it all is that no matter what happens I can honestly say I gave it my best. If this does not work out at least I will have gotten back into shape, and lost over 20lbs. Im pushin 30 so taking off weight, and training is not as easy as it used to be (especially since I have not trained seriously since college, not even when I played for L.A.).
Now for the last couple of months I have not paid any attention to weight increases(on max outs), in fact I have been so busy trying to make my weight training another form of aerobic workout I have completely forgotten to test those things. A couple of days ago I was able to jump on the bench and the squat and test those two movements, and boy was I suprised. When I started I could only get 275lbs up once if I was really feeling good. On this day I was able to get 315lbs up four times, and it was after a power hour session (who knows how many times I can actually get that up if I am not so drained!)…squats were also much improved, from 350lbs 6 times to 450lbs 6 times, and I feel pretty good about both of these increases (since they came in a 2 and 1/2 month period).
In the meantime I will continue to work my ass off and I will be thinking of you Mr. “Hard”, in fact I will be putting the face of every person I want to beat down in my head as I hear the words “You’ll get cut”! Make sure to introduce yourself someday, I cant wait to meet you.
I am probably not going to post a blog for the next week, so I can clear my thoughts and focus on lacrosse. But I want to thank everyone who contributed to my blog and to this website. The men who started it have a great idea here and I hope it continues to grow. I will return with more posts as training camp continues. Wish me luck, unless of course you are “hard”, in his case just keep running your mouth, it is the only thing you do well (yeah, I know who you are, and you should be focusing on your job right now, not this website).
