Training Log: Kaizen June 29-July 5, 2020

Back in December, I sat down and worked out a plan for getting back in shape. That plan was pretty basic. Do a barbell movement daily, add an accessory movement, walk (alot), and mix in bodyweight movements for a bit of conditioning/hole filling. This was done daily. I kept it simple, because I wanted to build positive habits, that little bit of endorphin release as I checked off daily habits I knew would pay off in the long run. I could tell the weight loss was going well. I’m down 30 pounds since last fall. I’m down a few inches … Continue reading Training Log: Kaizen June 29-July 5, 2020

How To Make Me Want To Fight You

Anyone who follows me on social media knows I like to talk politics. I can do it all day. I was a history major for a while with a serious interest in political science before getting into the news industry. The old rule of thumb was you never discuss politics or religion in politics, public company. But, I can talk politics with people diametrically opposed to me and my blood pressure won’t often trickle up in the slightest. It happens on occasion, but not often. No, if you want to get my blood to boil, talk music with me. I … Continue reading How To Make Me Want To Fight You

Covid Center

I’ve decided to start collecting my Covid-related inputs, whether it be graphs I check, podcasts I listen to, articles I read. These will not be only things I agree with, or disagree with, or whatever. I just wanted a place to document my inputs. Some will be from the health angle, or fitness angle, or political angle. Some with be a conversation within a greater conversation. Basically, these are not endorsements, but inputs. Instead of multiple posts, I am just going to “collect” here. 7-day Rolling Average of Deaths Per MillionsDaily confirmed new cases (5-day moving average)538 Covid Projection Models … Continue reading Covid Center

Reads: The Development of Muscular Bulk And Power

I like to pretend I’m old school. I probably never truly was, but I get to be more convincing with the mentality as I become, well, old. Within the strength world, I was lucky in the fact I got in with an old school powerlifting team early in my training journey. I didn’t waste too much time plowing through poor programs in Muscle & Fiction and Flex. At least, not until college and even then I knew they were bullshit and was doing them with full awareness of what they were. The kind of stuff we did in high school … Continue reading Reads: The Development of Muscular Bulk And Power

Reads: Comics Log

Last year, I got into the habit of reading a comic a day. Then I got out of the habit. I’m going to try to continue that. I read mostly old Marvel and new Image. I am working my way through the Marvel Reading Order found here. Marvel has a new event coming out next week called Empyre I will probably try to read as it comes out. I’m also just getting started with Saga, an Image series I just started today. I’m still trying to figure out how I am going to do this, format wise. For now, I’m … Continue reading Reads: Comics Log
