All right it is 7 am and all I can think about is BBQ! I am in Nashville for the next couple of weeks and will have to find a local BBQ joint.

I also found out that I am going to San Antonio in March for a week. I will have to figure out how far away all these things are and make some trips. Including Rips.

Awesome. I was in TN for 3 days and ate BBQ twice a day while I was there.

San Antonio is 5 hours away from Wichita Falls. But Wichita Falls is only a couple hours away from the Dallas airport. Let me know when your trip is and if you can make it through. I have an extra gi for you (and not one of those tight BJJ cheater gis ).

All this barbecue talk is making me hungry...

As a possibly legitimate voice in the conversation (Georgia boy), imagine my dismay upon learning that i have some sort of yeast problem in my gut and can't eat vinegar anymore. So I am now turning to yall for suggestions on potential sauces.

Help a brother out here

I've never been a vinegar fan myself, so I think you'll be pleased at what you find. Depending on how they've rubbed the meat, there are plenty of good mustard and tomato-based sauces out there. You can get everything from spicy, thin sauce to a thick, sweet sauce for your baby backs. Are you in GA right now?

*no fast and barely any sleep*

1) grip fighting and footwork for 30 minutes

2) DL singles
315, 365, 385
405x4x1

The first pull at 405 was crappy, so I stayed there. I haven't DLd in awhile, and I didn't want to aggravate anything.

3) reverse hypers
50#x3x8

4) 2000m row, moderate (>2:10/500) pace
8:34

Its just tough to find any bottled or restaurant sauces without...

Oh well, guess i'll just have to make some at home. Good excuse to smoke some meat. Yeah, Im in Athens right now, then back near Atlanta (Marietta) for a while in May.

Sam, keep reading into the program and look at some examples of heavy metcons. You should program it with reps or weights that are just beyond your reach...and reach them. Keep it quick, don't stop, and get it over with quickly.

Matthew, you almost have the perfect last name. Go the courthouse and have them remove that unruly "r" from your last name.

Yesterday- nothing. Worked 19 hours, including travel. Ate Hooter's, Mexican food, and drank beer.

Today
*no fast*

1) tuck FL
1 minute
Good. Go to adv. tuck FL.

2) HS, paralettes
1:10
Good again. Go to 3x45 sec. or whatever.

3) metcon
21-15-9, while wearing 22# weight vest
* 2-hand KB high pulls @ 24kg
* ring pushups
4:26
Courtesy of Jason Struck. This was no pleasant.

4) DH pullups
3x10

Kept it brief today because of judo tonight and heavy day tomorrow. It was a good session today. Must have been all the good food.

That metcon is a good one. Behold the power of the ring push up. Easier on the shoulders than a ring dip (though I still like 'em).

Things are looking good.

Good call on Hooter's. The food usually is below par, but who cares?
