That's a nonsensical conclusion to draw, actually.
The last time I will talk about health and fitness in this diary: I was wondering on the train to work about squatting. A couple times people who know me who train a little bit ask me how I made so much progress. I talk to them a little bit about my programming and how frequent squatting, usually 3x per week, is the cornerstone of it. That and massive amounts of food. They are typically shocked and say something like, "Man, I just couldn't squat 3x per week, that's madness." No, it's not. Squats are actually easy to recover from. You can get stupid amounts of volume with squats. They're big muscles. You can do even more if you're doing high bar squats. Once you're moving a lot of weight or are old (at least 40s), you can't do that, but the people I am talking to are not. They're mentally tough, though. And, yeah, you can't go to "failure", you have to do it intelligently, but, yes, you can and probably should squat often, as often as you can get away with. Which is more often than you think.
Attention Whole Foods Shoppers. I don't know if this was the article Teh Wife was wanting me to read. If it is, I have now read it. If it isn't, well, ATTN: Wifing Infidels, read this article.
I need to find some time to either go down to the old neighborhood and have drinks with friends still down there or just have drinks downtown with them. Downtown might work better, since there are some people who are no longer in the "'hood". Or I could just decide to go down there for Wings Night on some Monday. Crap, I have to make sure that Wings Night still exists as such.
This is quite relevant to my job: http://www.marriedtothesea.com/042810/the-problem-with-the-graph.gif The spike in Q3 is not a good thing.
