Forgot to post Smolov from yesterday.

Squats:
90 x 9 x 4

Cardio:
25 min

OHP:
55 x 9 x 4

Squats were killer. I have a 95 x 7 x 5 tomorrow. Looking forward to some serious DOMS after that. And to finally lifting over 100 for working sets on Thursday.

Note: need to improve warm ups. Gonna try taking all the weight off the bar and just going 45 for a 5 or 6, then light stretching. Legs didn’t feel tight at all, just fatigued in sets 3 and 4 yesterday. Gonna see if lightening the warmup load might help combat that.

The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.

"A new study shows that men are threatened by confident women taking pictures of themselves, and call these women stupid, socially inept, and ugly. In other news, the world is round, the sky is blue, and the patriarchy is still shitty."

blows my mind that women are considered shrill and whiny when all i have to do is insinuate that male feelings are not my #1 priority at all times and every indignant male in a 500 mile radius comes out of the woodwork to let me know how they feel

blackfemalepresident:

a underaged girl could be wearing lingerie and shaking her ass in a grown man’s face begging him to take her and guess whaaat

hes still trash for fucking her

hes the adult. he has enough control and willpower to say no. he knows that fucking kids is wrong.

stop sympathizing with men and protecting them for falling “victim” to “teenage temptresses”

if you cant trust yourself to not fuck kids, even if they “tempt you” the problem is you, NOT the kid

ask-an-mra-anything:

sure we’ve never had a woman president, the majority of politicians and CEOs are men, a woman needs a masters degree just to make the same money as a man with a BA doing the same job, rape cases are grossly under prosecuted, and we teach young girls that they’re “asking for” rape based on what they’re wearing

but let’s talk about the REAL issues like how some woman on the internet is selling a coffee mug with the words “male tears” printed on it

Squats make knees stronger. Squats make athletes better. Squats are good for kids, teenagers, adults, elderly people, and anybody else who can perform them correctly. Squats are a functional expression of human skeletal and muscular anatomy, and the human body is designed to do them. The squat is the way that tens of thousands of years of evolution has adapted the bipedal human body to lower itself to the ground. It is the position in which half the population of South Asia spends the afternoon. And when done weighted, it is the best exercise in existence for strength, power, coordination, joint integrity, bone density, confidence, discipline, intelligence, and charm.

The difference between period pains and getting kicked in the balls is that one is a compulsory monthly event and the other one is probably because you were being a dick.

Is it just me, or does the discourse in the powerlifting and bodybuilding community have the same effect on lifters’ perception of “strong” or “jacked” that photoshopping or airbrushing has on womens’ perception of beauty?

Here’s a newsflash: for the general public, a 225 bench and 315 squat are pretty darn strong for a male, and a 95 bench and 185 squat are pretty darn strong for a female.
Pick a commercial gym at random. You’ll find MAYBE 3-5 people who lift those weights out of hundreds of total members.
Sure, most of them aren’t training for pure strength, but I’d wager that if they were, most of them would still fall short of those standards.

-Greg Nuckols (via FB)

While I applaud the notion that strong and jacked in the popular vernacular are affected this way by the discourses in the PL and BB communities, I dislike the assertion that the difference between a strong male and a strong female is apparently 130 pounds.

Destroy the notion that your sex determines whether or not your lifts earn you the title “strong”.

And fuck the idea that for most women, training for pure strength would still not be enough for them to reach even half of what is apparently “pretty darn strong” for most men.
