Forgot my camera at home today, but the squats actually seemed deeper than usual. I feel like moving back to a low bar after using higher bar might actually make me stronger than I've been in the past. I'll find that out in a bit.
I'm pretty sure that I had one rep left in me for a small PR over last weeks on squat. But I felt like it'd be a pants-crapping rep, and I just wanted to save it. The rep, and my bowels.
SSB is still tough as hell, and definitely harder when paired with ab work.
I bought a new pair of running shoes today, mainly for my incline walks and standing around on my feet all day. My shins were having some cramping during the cardio, but perhaps I just need a few days to get used to the new shoes.
I've been making a big effort to try and get to bed earlier during the week. Earlier for me is 12-1AM rather than 2-4AM. This is key, no doubt.
The Fame bodybuilding federation also both a Fitness and Muscle Model division. I saw the video of the latter, and it just looked completely gay. Having been raised in a neighborhood with the gayest demographic in NYC, I'm far from homophobic, but this was just far from straight.
It looked like a bunch of guys who stopped dieting 8-12 weeks out from the bodybuilding show and just showed up to walk around and look cute. There's no flexing really, just pacing back and forth. Put a white tee shirt on me and soak me in beer.
I'll be sticking with the bodybuilding.
