    The Rippetoe Quote of the Day for Ken…
    On bending the arms in the deadlift:
    Bent elbows just absolutely suck.

    World of Warcraft hut that allows you never to leave your seat again!
    http://www.boingboing.net/2009/05/07/wowpod-a-self-contai.html
    I can’t make this up. Here’s the best part of the article:
    “The WOW Pod is an immersive architectural solution for the advanced WOW (World of Warcraft) player that provides and anticipates all life needs.
    Inside, the gamer finds him/herself comfortable seated in front of the computer screen with easy-to-reach water, pre-packaged food, and a toilet conveniently placed underneath his/her custom-built throne.
    When hungry, the gamer selects a food item (‘Crunchy Spider Surprise’, ‘Beer Basted Ribs’, etc.) and a seasoning pack. By scanning in the food items, the video game physically adjusts a hot plate to cook the item for the correct amount of time. The virtual character then jubilantly announces the status of the meal to both the gamer and the other individuals playing online: “Vorcon’s meal is about to be done!” “Better eat the ribs while they’re hot!” etc.
    When the food is ready, the system automatically puts the character in AFK (‘Away From Keyboard’) mode to provide the gamer a moment to eat. When the player resumes playing, he/she might just discover his/her character’s behavior is affected by the food consumed in real life — sluggish from overeating or alternately exuberant and energetic.”
    Queen again
    I don’t want to go out on a limb here, but if you buy anything that allows you to poop 24/7 without moving, you’ve failed at life, and if that device’s primary goal is to allow you to play video games, then you should be expelled. From life. Meaning murdered. I love video games but this is going much too far. Anytime shitting your pants is the more dignified option, you know you’ve done something terribly wrong.

    A toilet mounted underneath the gamer’s throne. I wonder what inspired the creators to make place the toilet so strategically.

    Oh my…Ian looks quite mad/funny in that picture. Haha.
    I am very upset I am missing Grace…it is one of my favorite workouts and I have been needing to redo it for awhile. Definitely will have to make this one up when I come back.

    Queenie: you talk about pooping a lot. I’m just sayin’. What scares me most about this invention is that my brother might really like it. Think I am going to have that talk with my parents about getting him some help after all.

    Went to the doc today for a 1 month/post-jacksonville check up on the foot:
    Good news: I didn’t make it worse by running, jumping, lifting on it. Even better news: he sees some callusing which indicates it’s beginning to heal.
    He said it will probably not be healed for another two months and that I should continue to avoid high impact exercises. So, I asked “what can i do the next two months?” he responded “the stationary bike is good”. I think I’ll keep doing what I’m doing: crossfit without running, jumping rope, or box jumps.

    Great news!
    Probably should lay off the muscle ups too. Those are bad on the feet.

    In case anyone is wondering what Brent is talking about, him and I have a bet going about who will get their muscle up first: him or me.
    We have not set a wager, but I’m pretty sure it’s pride and bragging rights.
    If you care to place a bet, do it wisely.

    My money is on the chain snapping when Bethanie is 90% of the way through the muscle up and her falling to the floor in a hilarious manner.

    This is a lot like the South Park episode in which Cartman’s mother, who once graced the cover of “Crack Whore” magazine, performed all the functions of this new gaming chair while Cartman and his friends played WOW continuously for days.

    grace 40kg 16:54
    I tested my brain and 35kg was ok, then 40kg was sloppy. Vas convinced me to stick with the sloppy weight. It was good practice as I got better at falling to the proper split stance as the reps continued (vs resembling a push press)
