    Oh yeah, your from Cali...

    Well over in IA we got this stuff called "corn", it's tall, itchy, and hot. The female corns have tassles that need to be yanked or 'detassled'... hence, "detassling". They get crews of 20-60 people to go through field the size of 15-100+ acres and pull the tassles. I've been getting paid $13/hr for the past week because IA just got hit by a land-locked tsunami so the fields are total hell.

    Pretty nice workout today even though I barely did anything, my legs are completely demolished...

    Squat : 45x10, 135x5, 135x5, 185x10, 195x10, 205x4 (had to stop on account of cramping), 205x6

    Weighted Calf Raises : 3x failure

    Standing Calf Raises : 3x failure

    Haven't squatted forever, wasn't suprised about the low weights and cramps. 174 lb today... ate some McD's afterwords.

    Gage hit a deadlift PR of 400 today @ BW of 150. That's 2.7 x his BW! Congrads to him, he's competeing RAW in the IA state fair, hope he does good.

    Hopefully once I get thru the first few weeks of hellish conditioning for football my legs will be in better shape and I'll be able to squat without cramping. Only 3 more days till camp, then summers over for me

    Got my physical today. Results :

    Asthma is worse than ever.

    Elbow could be tendonitis. He gave me a note so I could get physical therapy whenever.

    Said both my thumbs have very loose joints, wich is why they get dislocated in football like once a week...

    Highest weight of the year was 189.6, lowest weight was 169.2, current weight is 172.2 (man I really blew it)

    Seasonal anti-inflammatories are in the mail! Yippee!

    Blood pressure is *perfect*... yes, that's with all the salt I eat.

    No new diseases or allergies.

    Eyesight must be good enough, she didn't say it was bad. I must say though, after the 'rust incident', my right eye has gone blurrier than before. So has my left, wich makes no sense.
