Today I just missed a 305lbs squat to full depth by about an inch. For some reason I was having difficulty with my stance and dropping low enough. I noticed it during warm ups and it just refused to go away. More mobility work in my future.






This is, in fact, the most important post on the internet.

Every male should be required to read this.


I think about this post a lot. Is this seriously what most girls go through every single month? This is really concerning. 

thank you gentleman for acknowledging our pain. We sincerely appreciate it.

Remind me not to buy a creeky house

I think my family likes to do the tango in the morning. Every day this week, someone walking upstairs has woke me up. The footsteps sound urgent or like angry stomps and there is no hope of going back to sleep.



when I commit to a person, I FUCKING COMMIT. if their depression, anxiety or life comes knocking, you bet your ass i’m at the door with a double sided axe waiting for a good fight. 

you cant expect people, to always be happy, even if they are in love. because life doesn’t stop for anyone. But you can be there for the good fight. 

my god why can’t everyone be like this

Survival Game


I will keep fighting
Im strong enough for that
It won’t be an easy campaign
No glittering trophies along the way
Or an area map with a goal indicator
The enemy is inside my head
Whispering lies and spreading doubt
Stirring the proverbial pot
Brewing tension and discord
There is no walkthrough reference
Nor cheat codes for better armor
The enemy eats away my soul
Making each footstep heavier
But I keep plodding forward
Head held high in defiance
Pulling the cord, cutting the power
Was an option considered
But never taken, because
Rage quit is an unwanted permanent solution in this game I call life

Bog and plains trail run. All the fall colors. And some mud for fun.

Today was just a meh day in the gym. My shoulder was “clicking” with each rep. Not painful, but concerning. My ankle though is a different story. Tried to start running and got about ten steps before I called it quits. Time to start up joint rehab again.
