It’s easy to stay up late, but it’s hard to get up early.

Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you shall be the miracle.” – Phillips Brooks

High fructose corn syrup is not the same as cane sugar. When you start seeing commercials paid for by the corn growers lobby you should probably be suspicious of the product they’re pushing. Last time I checked the consensus in the scientific community was that high fructose corn syrup is pretty much poision. Unfortunately it’s in almost everything.

Once Brothers

Watched the Vlade Divac documentary on Yugoslavian basketball. Interesting that a couple of the former Yugoslav republics have produced great soccer and tennis players, but not really any great basketball since they won the world championship in 1990.

I was wrong about Ingrid Michaelson. I thought she was a poor mans piano player, but she’s produced a lot of good music.

The protocol

June 4, 2011

DL protocol from the 4hr body:

Dynamic warm-up
2-3reps @85-95% of 1rep max
Rest 5 min
Repeat 5-6 times

Allyson Felix was dead lifting 320lbs as a skinny hs student on this protocol. Works for me. The correlation between physical size, muscle mass, and limit strength is not what most people(esp women) think it is. In street clothes Felix doesn’t look like she could lift 100lbs let alone 300lbs.
