Angry Squats

Not my day today, in a mood as dreary and gloomy as the clouds that are taking over NYC this afternoon. Today was a Squat day, very hesitant to start at first, looked for every excuse in the book. Then I realized it – lifting heave things makes me feel better, my mood will lift with the weight as I rise out of the bottom of each squat! I will lift the whole damn gym . . . I hope they have enough plates down there!

I was off to a good start this morning, reduced sugar everywhere, I just downed a cup of flavorful coffee with half and half . . . well, it really wasn’t all that flavorful, but it makes me feel better to say that! The caffeine hadn’t yet kicked in as I went to the basement and started warming up, still pissed at the world, but going through my mobility drills and a light BB Complex just to get the blood running. Finally Im set in the rack excited and antsy because I cannot wait to get to my top end sets, these next few warm up sets of squats as I work to a 5RM are going to be torture damn it!!!

Then someone taps my shoulder, it is another guy with his chest all puffed out, “Hey Joey, can I work in?”

Joey: “Uugh, you SQUAT?”

Mr. I Don’t Do Legs: “No, I dont do Legs, but I can work in!”

Joey: “FML.”

So in the mood I was in, I didnt care, he seemed like he could get a decent amount of work in with some guidance, it was probably a great distraction before I overdid it and popped a blood vessel in my eye by the 4th or 5th set. Let’s GO!

From the corner of the gym, a grown man sits shivering in a heap on the floor repeating in a little voice . . .  “I dont do legs . . .  I dont do legs . . . “
