    Regular hours tonight? Needed extra rest this morning so I can kill it this afternoon. Going to sporting goods store to buy some tape.

    Another article about HgH…

    However, “a carbohydrate-rich, pre-workout meal squelches exercise-induced growth hormone secretion.” And, “Another disadvantage of a pre-workout meal rich in carbohydrate pertains to its effect on brain chemistry…. By elevating serotonin, a neurotransmitter with sedative properties, a carbohydrate-rich meal can adversely affect motivation and energy levels. A protein based pre-workout meal has the opposite effect” (Faigin, pp. 240, 241). So protein would be much better to consume pre-workout than carbohydrate.
    …..
    A high-glycemic carb drink will also blunt any growth hormone release that is occurring due to the exercise. It will also further increase cortisol levels, which would already be elevated from the exercise. But, “By contrast, a medium-sized protein or protein/ fat meal will not thwart post-workout exercise fat burning. Rather, it will perpetuate the fat-burning momentum generated by your workout” (Faigin, p.243).

    97 pull-ups in 6 sets today. Last time I did 96 pull-ups in 5 sets. I’m not really sure what to make of that. Anybody?

    Heat, heat, and heat.
    This happens every summer, all of a sudden peoples performances drop drastically or they stop PRing and many start panicking. Wait till fall, you will hit MASSIVE PRs when the temperature goes down.

    What’s a bench press without a rack? Did you do it with dumbells?

    Went to my brother’s high school gym. Wound up putting his wrestling team through a workout with me. Had to scale the exercises, so everyone could participate.
    20min AMPRAP
    5 95# thrusters
    7 burpees
    15 95# deadlifts
    9 rounds
    The wrestling coach’s eyes lit up seeing his team tired on the floor at the end. I gave my brother a list of workouts they can cylce through monthly.

    They used a barbell picked up off the ground. Not sure that I would recommend it for everyone.

    Brent is right, barbell, off the floor, then over your midsection to a bench position. It has no point, other than to make you try and do less sets because it takes longer to get the weight back to position.
