Been off the board, just since Gerard I have not felt like coming on.  I had the honor of being his friend, we spoke and texted often.  This past weekend I went to Dothan and competed.  Drove by the Holiday Inn that in Montgomery that we stayed in for a wild North South game.  The party after in the hotel was epic that I will never forget.  Then went through Troy, Gerard played football there.  I miss him.  Just going to leave it laying there.  I have so many questions still.

Last Saturday did Dothan game.  I was not so good.  Just blah.  But after the game, Durso, Terry Smith, Rhett Bobzein and Doug and Alex Ballard went out to eat.  Was an epic meal with Durso singing opera for the entire place to a rousing ovation.  Libations were flowing and so was the laughter.  Was really great.  Dothan games is a good one.

Monday went in and hit some shoulders.  Did a lot of overhead as usual.  Dumbells, 40, 50, 60, 70 and 80 x 6 and stopped there.  Had more, then did the 50's for 5 x 10.  Some high rep side laterals for a couple sets and out. 

Wednesday went in and pulled.  Lat is fine now and lower back feels decent.   Went up to 405 and hit 3 sets of triples.  5 x 10 bent over row and was kind of gassed, did some dumbell curls.

Friday chest, been doing russian and went to the 5's, 6 sets of 5 with 215 and did 6 last set, no lift or anything.  Then 5 x 10 w 75's laying on a flat bench, then 5 x 10 dips and then some french curls for 30 more reps, 160 reps total. 

Went out Saturday morning before the sore hit.  Don Stewart there.  Was best day throwing in a month.  Of course a week late.  Never remember being pissed at throwing good?  Threw first 5 events and stopped.  New guy with us, officer Danny, Tuscaloosa PD.  We did not hurt him.  So good.  Was great day.

Last monday went in to squat, worked up to 365 and could not keep balance to squat it.  Really frustrating, have to change something.  Went down and did 5 x 10 with 135 just doing ton of reps and then same with some leg extensions.  Trying to get some work and blood flow in there.

Wednesday got some good shoulder work.  Dumbell presses 40, 50, 60, 70, and 80's  had little hard time w the clean and did crappy.  So went 85's x 3 much better.  Then did 50's for 5 x 10, same with dips after 5 x 10, then some side laterals 2 sets of 20 and some seated french curls 3 x 10.  Nice pump.

Friday was back day, and felt toasted still from Monday squats.  I got so sore from all those reps and was still cashed.  Went to 365 for 5 and did 2 sets there.  Got nice and stiff from that right then.  Did 5 x 10 bent over row with 135 and then some standing curls up to 80'x 6 and some concentration curls  Good pump.

Next morning threw.  The new guy showed, the other two older new guys did not.  One of them gone since Dothan.  Might have done it for him.  Had good solid day of throwing.  Shoulders feeling pretty decent even.  Stone, light weight, light hammer and sheaf and wob.  Plenty.

Monday went in and got some incline.  This was the final week of russian, did 6 x 6 w 215.   Was decent and hard.  Then did 5 x 10 with flat dumbells 75's.  My elbows and joints are talking.  Only did a little french curl for triceps and kicked out.  Pleased.

Wednesday was different.  Since I can't keep my balance to squat tried some hatfield squats.  And it worked nice.  Went up to a triple at 370.  I did a lot of sets on the way up.  Had more and was pleased how this worked.  Then did regular squats for another 50 reps, 5 x 10 w 135.  Then some extensions in the range that does not hurt for another 50 reps. 

Tuesday and Thursday 20 sets of calves and stretching a bunch.  Legs are real numb of late.

Friday went in and felt cashed since I pressed a ton of sets and reps Monday.  But once again how you feel is a lie.  Got going and doing dumbell presses standing, did 40 x 12, 50 x 8, 60 x 5, 70 x 5, 80 x 8, just crushed the 80's for 8, felt real strong, then did the 5 x 10 with 50's.  Did a couple sets of side laterals real high rep and was done. 

Saturday got out and tossed some stone.  It was ok.  28 felt real good except the yam at the end.  Came along as we threw.  Then really wanted some hammer.  Made some ground last week and thought about it all week and was going to smash it.  Well I got real short armed and was dick.  I am still pissed about it.  Oh well. 

This week I am resting so to speak.  De load is the new term.  Resting is what it is.  Loving my protein action from AST, I think it is making difference for me as I have trouble eating enough.

OK I am back.  Did not train last week really to rest for Hattiesburg.  John Micka has a gym over there and it is very nice.  He puts on a game and he was a great host.  The game is just a couple years old and was in the field across from the gym.  I had a real nice day until the day dragged on and my body said nope at about 4 PM.  So sheaf and wob were no bueno.  Had nice sprint w the caber and really had fun.  My boy Pete won the A class and my newer boy Keith won the B class. 

Observations.  Why do we have to dumb down a strength sport for people with no strength?  All sports are not for everyone.  We need to do more minimal heights on events as they were hours long.  Hours.  Some of these heights we start at again show, if you don't have strength, why are you doing a strength sport? 

Got back in the gym last night.  Felt decent at best.  Pulled some deads and went up to 435 x 3 and it was ok.  Then 5 x 10 on bent over row and then some curls and out.  Worked to the 90's for a couple and was tired.  It was enough.

Even as a little guy myself, I have to agree with you Mule.  Of course, my formative games were under the Cummings umbrella and that was always the way of things, i.e. go get stronger.

That said, I have seen games with pure novice classes serve folks really well.  It just becomes a matter of if there is space and people to put on a novice class.

But always, there remained the discipline of steel.

Amen! There are tons of "sports" that require very little strength, i.e. darts, badminton etc. If you cannot get a 56 any higher than your arm extending over your head, then you are weak as a fart in the wind and need to go somewhere else. Plain and simple people who are too weak need to either train and fix it or go to another sport. They just make the day go long on height events. I would never enter a swim meet and annoy and insult real swimmers with my infantile swimming ability.

Ross rest in peace would have cleared that up very fast.  OK, my second bitch.  If your a new thrower, if your a B thrower and if your a new A thrower, do not give advice.  You are not good enough to give advice, you stink yourself.  We have a gal at the games, who is horrible, yet she feels compelled to coach people.  She will actually start giving advice.  She will also cheer on when others do total crap and tell them great?  This person I don't think has ever beaten anyone.  I am serious and gives advice.  Then comes in at 9 in the sheaf. 

I realize some people want to have a life event and say they did the games.  But the second time you better be practicing and ready to compete as this is a contest, not a frigging cocktail party some with your f ing jello shots seem to confuse it with. 

I had a fabulous day in the gym Wednesday, hit my incline, second week of the cycle and it was interupted by the game, yea I spelled it wrong.  Came back and hit 6 sets of 4 on the incline and smoked it.  Then 5 x 10 on flat dumbells w the 80's, then 50 dips same 5 x 10 and about 60 pushdowns with 3 sets.  Felt swole and good.

Because of my balance issues with the numb legs I have been doing my heavy stuff on the hatfield squats, and friday worked up to a 455 triple.  Was nice to have some poundage back on me.  I had more in the tank it felt like at the time.  Then did my 5 x 10 with regular squats and leg extensions.

Now I got up and out early Saturday morning after the squat sesh Friday night.  The legs were not just numb, but they were no bueno.  Just had nothing.  Stumbling bumbling around. 

Monday got some shoulders.  Press and more press really.  Overheads worked 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, super ugly clean and no balance on he first rep, but managed 6, then did 5 x 10 with the 50's and couple sets of side laterals for 20.  Felt good, short and sweet.

Was ready to pull Wednesday and my body said nope.  Worked up to 405 and stopped there.  Just felt heavy and should not.  Still did 5 x 10 bent over row and some curls.

Friday was my chest and tri day and just did not feel fresh, but what ever.
Inclined 6 sets of 5 with 225.  The very first set was hard, I did not have 6 and knew it.  But rested and knew if I got the second set the third and fourth sets are your best, so knew if I can get one set, I can get 4.  Logic.  And that was pretty true except I messed up a rep on that 4th set, now I got all 5 but it was a tough last rep.  Took long rest and did a 5th set with an eternal last rep, a rep that for a second or two was in doubt even as I was wide ass open pushing it with everything I could find.  So I figure forget the 6th set.  I mean I almost did not get the 5th one.  So I decide to cash in and stop.  Big Steve Ballard wanders by and we discuss and he looks at me with stopping not even on the option list.  So I think about it and figure doing 29 reps would be closer to the goal, so even if I got 4 reps this set it would be closer to the 30 total.  So I amp up and blast out the 5 reps without a spot or lift off and get the 30.  Destroyed me. 

I go in and do my flat dumbell anyway afterwards for the 5 x 10 and do them all with the 80's.  I am pretty cashed now, 80 total reps of pressing and the some brutal sets.  But big Steve wants to do tri work, so off to 5 x 10 on dips.  And I make the big man get up and down with them and won't take his partial crap.  We then matriculate to some standing french curls for 10's and then some push downs for a couple sets of 20.  I am toast. 

Now not only am I toast but my shoulders are pissed.  Not hurt, but hurting me, wow, both sides don't really want to work without a lot of pain.  So as usual I double my drugs and go forward. 

Joseph Williams is coming up from Florida for some tossing so we meet him on the field early with officer Webster and Pete, so we have a good group.  Shoulders not happy, but have a real nice day with the stone, and weights.  Hammer not so much.  Caber is too light now to tell, just is dried and fried.  Still good for picking and sprinting.  We had a good time and I took the boy to dream land after an told him bear bryant stories. 

Took him out for sheaf and wob the next day and I think the guy really picked up some things.  I bet he goes 10 feet further on his light weight from one weekend.  Good stuff.

Monday got in for some legs, did some hatfield squats and worked up to a 485 triple, then did regular squats for 5 x 10 with 135, then did some leg extensions for 3 x 20.  Gradually adding in more volume.  Felt much better than last time as did the recovery.

Went in last night and did some calves and stretched out.  Stretched real good after the squats.  Surprised how good I feel in fact.  Did about 15 sets of calves.  While there the famous peacock was strutting.  But today he took it up a notch.  While doing his overhead presses, a set every few minutes, not a fast pace or anything, he had an altitude mask on.  When I say he took it up a notch I did not mean his training.  I ment the disdain people have for this guy in the gym.  They hate him.  The guy has some natural ability to bring this out of people.  I feel it.  Never seen someone bastardize a movement better.  He could have his own video of craptastic movements.  Lucky he is pretty weak, but he is getting stronger and now has the ability to hurt himself.  I see an orthopedic doctor in the boys future.  Sometimes I can't hold myself when he is doing something just crazy and recently he was doing some one arm incline partial weird movement I had not seen before and told him that is FFFFFing ridiculous.  I guess he thought I was joking.
