Program Minimum Day 5: Steak.

I came up early from my seminar last night and started writing almost immediately.

Before I knew it, three hours had passed.

I kept going.

Then another hour passed.

I finally ate dinner at about 10:30pm.

I guess I really like writing.

Anyway, I had a nice big (and overly-priced by about $10) NY Strip. Always like those. One of my favorite cuts. Also had asparagus and twice-baked potatoes. Very nice!

I probably should’ve trained because I have been doing so much sitting and my hips and knees are getting a little sore. A workout would do them some good.

I will however be tossing around the kettlebells tonight.

I will most likely do some more half Get Ups and then hit some hard Swings for about 20 minutes or so.

I need to hit it hard and early because I’m getting up early to drive back home tomorrow. Six more hours of sitting. Fun!

    Heading to NYC for 4 days, taking 16 kg with me, so will explore what “greasing the groove” really means.

    Tweaked my left elbow pressing the Beast, actually poor form on the clean = my fault. Learned a lesson, will make a new mistake but will not repeat that one 🙂

    Greasing the groove with goblet squats added 150 pounds to my 10 rep leg press “max” in last 6 weeks, maybe I need to take the quality rep advice at a deeper level and apply this across the board. I wasn’t worried about setting a weightlifting record on this, didn’t hurt myself and gained strength. “The Party is always right.” Ok, drank the kool-aid. Some things you learn by doing I guess. Thanks Geoff.

    More perfect, safe reps…be patient, stick with the tried, true and battle tested rep schemes…don’t question it…just do it. I realized I don’t have to understand why it all works, just understand that it does work and keep going.

    1 year of kettlebells under my belt, learned this is a lifetime journey not something I’ll go from white belt to black belt in a year. Ok got it.

    Someone else asked me today “Where do you workout?”…well I have these gym memberships I actually don’t use that much anymore. This is all coming from kettlebell work. Good validation for me to stay the course.

    Still love it though.
