w1d2 – the colour and the shape

I bought foo fighters record ”the colour and the shape” back in 1997. some people were sad that nirvana broke up while I was not (although the suicide of kurt cobain was a horrible thing). the ff album really knocked my socks off. the whole grunge scene was probably more interesting if you were living in seattle at the time.

the video above is, in my not so humble opinion, a great one. surely this opinion is largely due to nostalgia, but I also feel that the use of a faceless and physically average guy is very appealing. this due to one identifying with the perceived hero and also because the tough gym brah gig is really tiresome. and it was already at that time (scooter, I’m looking at you!).

went lifting today. even looked at the correct spreadsheet. went to the other hospital since I needed to fix something here. a bit odd, but at the same time reassuring, to see that all the usual suspects were hanging in the gym (stinky, deadlifts-in-rack, the runners, wristcurl etc.).

body is sore today.

main lift

squat, 3 / 3 / 3+. after warmup:

  1. 3x 115 kg
  2. 3x 132.5 kg
  3. 7x 148.5 kg (3+)
  4. 3x 148.5 kg (joker)

I got tired even before the 3+ set. something began to hurt quite a bit in left hamstring. stopped after a single joker set to avoid aggravation of pain (and possibly injury).

assistance lifts

good mornings

  1. 10x 78.5 kg
  2. 10x 78.5 kg
  3. 10x 78.5 kg
  4. 10x 78.5 kg
  5. 10x 78.5 kg

felt stronk here. the hamstring did not trouble me.


  1. 60
  2. 60
  3. 60
  4. 60
  5. 60

standard pullaparts. upper back is getting noticeably stronger. sometimes I can see muscles beneath the fat and hair. 🙂

barbell calf raise

  1. 10x 78.5 kg
  2. 10x 78.5 kg
  3. 10x 78.5 kg
  4. 10x 78.5 kg
  5. 10x 78.5 kg

possibly a bit on the light side. worked on balance stuff.

suspended situps

  1. 15
  2. 15
  3. 15
  4. 15
  5. 15

    There’s a Stinky in my gym too. He doesn’t come in too often, but his visits are always memorable. The stench level is literally out of this world.

    FF def. good. I met Dave Grohl once when the band was playing in my city. We were eating at a local dive and while waiting for drinks I went to the bathroom. The urinal was just a big metal tub with a bunch of ice in it and the guy at the opposite end said, ”Ahhh, nothing like taking a piss on some ice.” Or something to that effect and I said something in response and looked over and it was Dave. Obviously, to avoid being thought of as a stalker, I waited until we were walking out and said something like, ”Great show last night.” ”Thanks man.”
