I established new personal bests in a few lifts that I do at Crossfit. My gains were big because I’m worried that I’ve been afraid to try to go heavier on my lifts. It’s been really invigorating for me to be able to lift these large amounts.
My new personal bests are:
- Back Squat: 335 lbs
- Front Squat: 260 lbs
- Power Clean: 175 lbs
- Deadlift: 365 lbs
Those are all one rep maxes, and I feel like I’ve still got quite a bit left in me. Here’s a short video of me killing a 260 lb front squat.
- I saw the Kids in the Hall in Raleigh, North Carolina. I don’t want to say that it was a dream come true or any of the other tired things that a person might summon for something like that, because I honestly only thought of the group as a TV show.
Instead, I laughed. A lot. I repeated my favorite lines to some of their classinc routines that they did. I enjoyed the new stuff. I cheered wildly for Buddy Cole, Gavin and all of the other awesome characters. It was a perfect night.
I managed to sneak in a Jon Spencer Blues Explosion concert. They’ve always impressed me with their energy and commitment to smash together the pure unadulterated fun of a funk jam and a punk rock concert. It was a beautiful thing to behold.
More to come!
