IKNORITE!

For reference my own PRs are: Squat: 309, Bench: 198, Deadlift: 375.

My arms fell off an hour ago.

But I have decided that I am going to do this for the rest of my life, just so that I will leave an unreasonably heavy corpse for my descendents to deal with.

Hernias for the grandchildren.  Because they need to learn that life is hard.

Competing in a few weeks. Ramping up the intensity. Oh lord.

Went for 70 pounds/hand on dumbbell press yesterday (31.something KG):

Set 1:  12
Set 2:  4
Set 3:  3
Set 4:  POTATO

 :lulz:

Then worked down on 45 pounds for a while.  My arms are dead.  I am typing this with a rubber chicken.

Each set lists the number of repetitions I was able to do, lying flat on my back and shoving two 70 pound dumbbells in the air.

It's a personal best for me (before this I could manage a few reps of 60 pounds, which are now fairly easy.  It's amazing how much 20 extra pounds means).

I'm starting a weight training class at school today. It's been over a year since I've lifted anything other than my belly and the occasional pallet of paper.

I'm thinking shit-show for a bit.

Yep.  Even if your muscles can handle more, the connective tissue can't, so you take it slow.

"Maxing" is for people who don't need elbows or knees.  Al Gore, maybe.

Or people like me.

Waffles,
strained side flexor, with strict orders from a physiotherapist to work on hip mobility.

This is why I am a weight lifter, not a power lifter.  Everyone I know who competes gets fucking mangled.

Holy hell. I leave for only a few months and come back to find this?

There's treachery afoot.

Postscript: I'm training for my first marathon, and today I managed to still make my 5 mile with flatulence that would easily be mistaken as the 7 trumpets of Revelation. I thought I would get joy out of crop dusting the neighborhood, but soon found that thermals trap your fumes and cause blowback. I threw up.
If I had a million dollars, I'd put it all in a sensible mutual fund.

Reverse hypers are good for squeezing the farts out.

Turns out the class is only partly going to involve weight training. A lot of body weight/movement stuff instead. We are going to be working a lot of deadlift technique, which is one thing I'm looking forward to getting down.

I don't know anyone with serious injuries, actually. Lesser injuries like mine, however are a dime a dozen. lol

Worth it though.
