      I have, but I absolutely despise the new Chargers. They just look hideous to me. As of now I'm waffling back and forth between the Mustang and an Accord Coupe. Don't laugh, it has 270 bhp and ALL the cool-kids features.

          I'm gonna pretend you didn't say that.

          This is the car I'd love to have:

            • Aaaaand I tore my left lat. Felt it rip HARD on a set of Romanian DLs with 455.

              I think I'm gonna have to start following Dante's advice for old people and raise all sets to a minimum of 10-12 reps.

                  Just a partial tear, no scans or surgery necessary. But I'm fucking PISSED because I was making good progress.

                  I think I'm gonna stick to the Fortitude Training schedule, do what upper body stuff I can (if any), and do cardio instead of the upper body stuff I can't do.

                  • Strangely my lat felt TONS better today. The amount of improvement from yesterday is phenomenal. Still no bruising, but last time I tore a lat it took almost a week to show up.
                    I'm gonna train legs again on Friday (muscle round day) and see where I'm at. If it feels OK, I might try for some light upper body work on Saturday, which would be upper muscle rounds day.

                    • My lat has healed up.

                      Yesterday I squatted seriously for the first time in a LOOOOOOOONG time. I did an easy 12x275 with close stance, and it felt great. I held back from going heavier to protect my lower back. Then I proceeded to blow out my lower back doing fucking SEATED LEG CURLS. I swear to God if my my body doesn't start to work with me I'm going to devote the rest of my scientific career to figuring out how to upload my consciousness to a computer so I don't have to put up with this shit.

                            Heh, I forgot about that. Feels like forever ago. I ended up going with the fiscally conservative choice of a Honda Civic. I've been wonderfully pleased with it. My lease will be up this November and I'll almost certainly get another Honda.
