I might be about to do a stupid thing.
So apparently toby stephens is coming to GC nova, and I'm toying with the notion of finally putting together a romantic era outfit. It's been on the list for a while but like everything else, gets sidelined for medieval costuming.
The petticoats tho guys. I don't even have a concept of how much cording I'm going to need for it. 😵 future me is in for a lot of work.
You know it's bad when bench was the best part of your session.
Training is getting pretty intense as of now, sucks when you have a hip niggle and you just have to get through it. Bench felt astoundingly good; 140 should fly next week. Didn't wanna deadlift but I hadda so just got on with it. Luckily, my flow state is coming on well and i made it through most of the reps until my last single. Grip still needs work but 235 for 9 reps (and a half) is a huge total volume PR. Afterwards I just babied myself during accessories. Will do my mobility and heal up. The rest of this block will be lovely.
Also big shoutout to the chums at @uon_powerlifting for being cool peeps and bringing such a big turnout today. Here's to many more great sessions bois.
135x1x1 (match pr)

throwback to this picture i took 2-3 years ago, when this was literally the only halloween decoration/offering on our entire street. in case y'all are wondering why halloween ain't too big on my calendar.
Steven suitcase has had a tough life. He began degrading several years ago and has just lost his battle with deflatinisis. The photos above show his slow decline in health. He will be missed 😭 #ripinpieces
There's a stain on my ceiling from when I bait the shit out of a wasp with Harry Potter and the half blood prince when I was about 12. The ceiling allowed for a swift pincer movement between itself and the tome. #RIPinPieces#WaspBegone#HighFiveMrCeiling
