PR: Jerk

On Monday, I set a personal record on the jerk: 175 lb. And I was this close to putting up 185, too. This was back, split jerk, by the way.

Also, although I don't usually post PRs for sets of more than a single rep, I feel that I should mention the record I set for 5 reps of overhead squat---155 lb---since I did it in the same workout.

Manodactyl vs Chupaconda

Ever wonder how the SyFy channel comes up the the ideas for all its craptacular monster movies? I think they simply slapped the columns of this chart on a pair of 15-sided dice and started rollin'. Once they begin advertising Sharkshark, we'll know they are truly out of ideas.

Hot and Cold

Me: "God, it's hot." Alison: "I'm cold."

This could be a deal-breaker.

On Monday, I surpassed my previous 1-rep maximum of overhead squat by doing 150 lb. And I did it for 3 reps. And I did several sets of 3 at that weight. I'm Brian with the overhead projector about that result.
