Yeah I know it’s been a while again, but I’ve been busy. I promise to keep up a little more from now on even if it’s just to touch base a little. There’s not much new to report. Since I’ve ended my fat-burning extravaganza I’ve gone back to my more standard workouts. I’ve been trying to put back a little weight, but it seems to be staying right around where it was. I’m trying to up my calories a little bit at a time so as not to gain back the fat I lost. I haven’t lost any weight in my lifts so I know I’m doing pretty well. Also, since we last spoke I set a PR in the clean with a 195 lb. pull. I almost jerked it, too but I just couldn’t finish it up. I really need to be doing these with bumper plates. If I didn’t have to worry about putting it down or have already tired myself out by putting the weight down I feel confident I could get a 200 lb. Clean & Jerk easy right now. Lowering a heavy clean or snatch to the ground takes a lot more out of you then you’d think. If you don’t believe me, try doing a set of 4 or 5 snatches at a decent weight, lowering it to the ground each time. Of course, the problem with bumper plates is that no one has them except specialty gyms.
Anyway, stay tuned for more updates and keep root for the greatest no-limit hold’em player in the world, Phil Hellmuth, at the World Series Main Event. He’s a little low right now with about 710,000 chips, but he knows what to do with them and he can put a run together. There’s only 79 players left out of about 6800. It seems like he’s had a tough couple of days, but due to his superior skill he’s still in it. He’s due for some good things today. Talk to you soon.
