Yesterday sucked. Because my company refused to give a work reference and history of employment to a Police Agency I was set to swear into within a couple weeks, my spot went to another candidate. I've been absolutely livid about it. I've been heavily contemplating resigning from my company since yesterday and moving on. My management killed a career opportunity for me. I have worked for over 3 years to gain the credentials and professional references to put me above the other competition and my work thanks me by denying a reference for a company I've been with for 4 years? pisses me off.

Power Clean: 95 x 5, 110 x 3, 130 x 3, 145 x 5
Deadlift: 205 x 5, 245 x 5, 285 x 3, 330 x 3, 370 x 5, 225 x 3 x 10
Press: 45 x 5, 70 x 5, 90 x 5, 105 x 3, 120 x 3, 135 x 5, 105 x 10, 95 x 8, 85 x 8
BB Rows: 140 x 10, 145 x 10, 150 x 10
Preacher Curls: sets of 12
Hanging Leg Raises: 2 x 15

Sprints: 15 rounds done at a moderate intensity at the park

On top of that, right when I was setting up for my last set on heavy deads with 370 trying to mentally prep for at least 8 reps, a guy comes over and taps me on the shoulder for a spot right when I was about to lift off, ruined my concentration completely.

Then there was the meathead who kept trying to tell me I would be better off using a mixed grip with straps at 330, wtf? I don't even use mix grip till my last 5/3/1 set ever in order to improve grip. He must have walked up to me 3 times.

Lets not even get into the girl problems for this week either, thankful for a Marine Buddy who's gonna help me get my mind off this crap tonight though when we hit downtown.
