Friday 5-31-13 training and Uncle Steve to the rescue!

Today’s training was simple and tough all at the same time:

Front squat: Worked up to 180kgs which tied my all time PR and then I flew too close to the sun and tried 200kgs (440lbs). By the time I set the weight up it was choking me out and I dropped it. I'll get it though, it won't be long now.

Deadlifts with 150lbs in band tension: worked up to 315 for 8x2 with 45 seconds rest and then added weight for a few quick singles and ended up with 485x1

Shrugs with cambered bar: 375lbs x 5 sets of 20

Recently I received an email from one of my oldest and dearest friends, Tina. As a matter of fact she was my very first little girlfriend when we were kids and the first girl I ever kissed. I know what you’re thinking . . . "That Stevey P was always a big baller." We still talk on a weekly basis and have always been the best of friends. Tina was telling me about her concern about a kid that was going to be taking her daughter to the prom. She didn't really know the guy and since Tina is single and has no man in her life she asked me to stop by the house and "meet" this young fellow. Of course I jumped at the chance to scare this horny little bastard.

I dropped by their house yesterday and Tina's daughter looked like a little princess, she is so sweet and beautiful. Since I have known this kid since she was a baby and have two beautiful daughters of my own my daddy protective instincts immediately took over. I was thinking to myself, "this kid better impress the hell out of me when he shows up or I'm throwing him the hell out". The fact that he was late to the point of making her panic didn't score any points with Uncle Steve at all.

The prom date finally shows up, he had gotten driven there by some of his buddies. He finally approaches the house and is standing at the bottom of the front steps. He nervousely looked up at the glass front door and sees "Uncle Steve" standing inside the house completely filling up the doorway with muscles and awesomeness waiting for him. The next thing I notice is that he seems to be of unknown ethic origin, possibly Iranian. I later found out he is from Afghanistan . . . hmmmmm, ok Steve just keep an open mind here, maybe he’s one of the “good ones”. Yeah he better be!

He mustered up his courage and walked up the steps and I opened the door and just said "You're LATE!" He just kept looking back at the car which was full of his buddies that dropped him off as if to say "Yo guys, don't leave me here". They wanted no parts of Uncle Steve and just took off.

After staring this kid down for a while and taking a few pictures my job was done. I warned him to be a good little boy and to have fun and I went back to work.

So if anyone else out there needs my services just give me a call. I'll stop on over your house on prom night and look menacing on demand.

Here is me and Tina at age 14 in 1980 and again at 47 yesterday. I haven't changed much at all huh?


This is me cock-blocking a prom picture as only I can.
