All over. Planet Hollywood this time. It’s pretty mid, but we are going for our niece’s 21st, and my sister-in-law only goes with what she knows. She went there once for work, so that’s where we are staying. It really doesn’t matter though, it’s still Vegas.

I feel like I am coming down with something, so I trained at home. I’m going take a bunch of supplements to kick it. Vegas is tomorrow.

It felt good to sweat out all the toxins I put into my body while in Las Vegas. It’s always a good time, and we’re heading back in two months.

Today I notice three young guys all training together. They appeared to be linemen from of the local high school football teams. They were benching and incline benching some very impressive weight. I made a point of stopping them and telling them how impressed I was. They were very polite and thanked me.

Working on my gunz for Independence Day.

At my wife’s suggestion, I signed up for a meet on August 10th. I normally take three to four months to get ready, and not five weeks. I’ll still give it a shot and have some fun.

I have been having pressure and ringing in my right ear ever since I got back from Las Vegas last week. I finally went to the urgent care place Sunday, and it turns out I have an ear infection. I don’t know how one situation leads to the other, but I’ll partially blame a lack of power on my ear. I have nothing else.

I thought about mowing the yard after work, but it was 108 degrees. Maybe tomorrow. It’s only supposed to be 97. It was still 105 when I left the gym.

I haven’t done pull-ups in years. I think I will stay with them, because I know how much they build strength.

I want to say my ear is getting better. I’m feeling less pressure, but it’s ringing really loudly. Hopefully the medication will start to get ahead of it in a day or two.

Glad to see you doing pullups. At 4 x l0 reps you’re at point where you should consider doing weighted ones. Likely handle multiple 45s in no time.

Maybe down the road. I’m pretty bad at them currently.
