Now, with extra

At some point, I’m going to wise up to the fact that I can’t lift for shit when all I’ve had is two cups of coffee and a protein shake. Today was not that day, obviously, but that didn’t stop me from trying it anyway.

Of course, nothing good or impressive came of it, but it beat not doing anything, or spending an extra hour getting my ass summarily handed to me during the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 free multi-player demo Steam is offering this weekend (12GB? Seriously? Yes, it’s pretty in that “Yep, I’m crossing Fallujah off my to-visit list” kind of way, but jesus fuck).

The opener, a dozen turkish get-ups, were done on a dare/bet. I was hoping to make 20, but there was no goddamned way that was going to happen this morning. There’s video of those below the cut.

15/9/3+ – Bench Press, with interstitial deadlifts (since being sore all week from squats wasn’t sufficient disincentive last time around)
