I am frustrated with training. Last monday's training was barely even worth mentioning, were it not for a new Good Morning PR of 6 reps @ 200 kilos. I'm still not writing it up. And last weekend's session was lacklustre; everybody's injured, recovering, out of action from a year of competition. I did some decent volume work with the DB press but nothing else is worth talking about.

I am frustrated at work. Work unfortunately requires me to regularly communicate with some undesirable and unreliable individuals. This time of year, those individuals become more unreliable and unpleasant to deal with. I do my job and I try not to let it affect the rest of my life. But sometimes I fail at this.

I'm also frustrated with half-wits who think they know politics, and attempt to engage me in ad hominem and regurgitated rhetoric as a way of demonstrating intelligence (I can only assume). I don't have time for your bullshit. But I'll provide this for you, so you know at least what your bullshit is called:

ad hominem |ˈad ˈhämənəm|adverbadjective(of an argument or reaction) arising from or appealing to the emotions and not reason or logic.• attacking an opponent's motives or character rather than the policy or position they maintain: vicious ad hominem attacks.
So tonight was a good session; I actually super-setted the last few exercises to keep intensity up. The higher volume and more regular cardio work is resulting in a little less weight on the scale (been at 127 for a couple of weeks now) and I'm worried about exactly how much of that is muscle atrophy.

More Squats and Good Mornings tomorrow night.
