Oh damn, I have a conference call in a couple minutes where I'm telling people how to use this bloody tool I made like two years ago. I tried to make it user friendly. And... that went well, they seem a bit brighter than the last people to handle it.
Experimenting with high bar squats. Did 315# for a few easy triples. They stress me in a much different way from low bar squats. I only did triples (instead of 5s) because I'm still getting accustomed to them and it feels like the thing holding me back is maintaining tightness, just like front squats, so triples are better than higher rep sets. I think I'll be acclimated by next workout, though, so I'll do 315 for 3 sets of 5 and then add poundage accordingly in the coming days. No elbow pain. That's still a disappointingly low weight. Then the bench sets just rocketed up after the squats. Huzzah.
Whether supplements are worth it. It's interactive! I forget whether I stole this from somebody's diary here or facebook or what. Not surprisingly, vitamin D and fish oil are high up there. Also not surprising: vitamin C supplementation is not really worth it unless you have scurvy. Mildly suprised by probiotics, they seemed like hyped-up hippie nonsense. Noticed: they didn't have anything about bone health in there, ie calcium and vitamin D. They'd be right up there at the top, especially for women. But, anyway, this thing isn't perfect, it's not the definitive word on what's good and what's wack, but there is some value a lay person can take away (I say that as a layman).
Hmm. My credit card rewards account says I have 25,000 more points than I should have. Like a pinch on the neck of Mr. Spock (SPOCK!). If it sticks around, I'm redeeming it. Hmm. It shows up in print on my statement. I think that means it's mine...
Have you got any angel food? Maybe... a cake?
It's time for lunch.
