So it turns out I’m not the sharpest Crayon in the super duper box of Crayolas.
You all know you had these in elementary…with the sharpener in the back. Quick survey- how do you pronounce the word, “Crayon”??? We have many variations floating around in my office. I’m pretty much dead set on the Kindergarten method- “Cran”. Others say “CraYON”. Just doesn’t sound right to me.
Anyway, I know we kind covered my lack of intelligence yesterday, but I just wanted to remind you. See…every once and while, I get this crazy idea that I can actually think for myself….all on my own. Um, no. Bad idea. So….no isolation moves for me. My sad shoulders will have to stay sad for a while longer. Apparently my bench will go directly in the toilet if I start doing shoulder isolation moves. And spending time in the toilet is no good….so I hear.
I did more speed benching this morning. 9 sets of 3 at 95 pounds. It was a bit lighter than what I did last week so I was super fast!!!
Then I did some close grip bench, dips (which are totally fun now that I can do them), dumbbell rows, and shoulder presses. I got a bit cocky and thought I could do the shoulder presses with 30# dumbbells, since I did them with 25’s last time. I had to put a big check in the no box on that one. It was pathetic. This is where the 27.5 pound dumbbells from Conti’s gym would have come in handy. Oh well, I’ll just have to toughen up a bit before I try that one again.
Oh, and I found something fun thing to share with you guys. Anyone have that special someone in your life that may be going through a rough patch or have a bit of an anger problem? There’s now a solution! It’s called “How to Exercise: Workouts for Angry Lunatics” Check it out at:
