9/17

Press: 100 x 5, 115 x 5, 130 x 5

I've avoided the gym since my wrist has been hurting so bad the last few days, I couldn't do my job correctly because of it, which is why carpal tunnel sucks.

Just doing assembly line work from before and now doing all the stuff at my current job has worn on my wrist. Every few months it flares up, it's just not serious enough for surgery yet.

9/23

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

Conditioning
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.

SLDL: 155 x 10, 160 x 10, 165 x 10

Steady State: 30 min

Can a company deny a reference like that?

Corrections will be interesting. A buddy of mine from college scared the crap out of his girlfriend when he told her that as a Sheriff's deputy he would have to start in county. She thought he was going to be on the set of Scared Straight or something.
