God told Moses to send men to spy out the land of Canaan. He told him to send a man from each tribe. Twelve men were sent. They were to find out about the land and the people in the land. Moses said to find out if the people were strong or weak. Did they live in cities or in camps? He wanted to know what the fruit of the land was like, and if they had forests or not. He asked them to bring back some of the fruit that was ripe.

"Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled"

We are the Pilgrims, master; we shall go
Always a little further: it may be
Beyond the last blue mountain barred with snow,
Across that angry or that glimmering sea,
White on a throne or guarded in a cave
There lives a prophet who can understand
Why men were born: but surely we are brave,
Who make the Golden Journey to Samarkand.

"We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm." ---George Orwell on a BBC broadcast, April 4, 1942

"When the highest and strongest drives, breaking passionately out, carry the individual far above and beyond the average and lowlands of the herd conscience, the self-confidence of the community goes to pieces, its faith in itself, its spine as it were, is broken: consequently it is precisely these drives that are most branded and calumniated. Lofty spiritual independence, the will to stand alone, great intelligence even, are felt to be dangerous; everything that raises the individual above the herd and makes his neighbour quail is henceforth called evil."

Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil, 1886, 201

"Somewhere a True Believer is training to kill you. He is training with minimal food or water, in austere conditions, training day and night. The only thing clean on him is his weapon and he made his web gear. He doesn't worry about what workout to do - his ruck weighs what it weighs, his runs end when the enemy stops chasing him. This True Believer is not concerned about 'how hard it is;' he knows either he wins or dies. He doesn't go home at 17:00, he is home. He knows only The Cause. Still want to quit?"

My most recent VA interview

Posted on December 30, 2014 at 8:00am 0 Comments

I had a VA appointment about a month ago and they called for a “follow-up interview”. The follow-up went very much like the original interview and went something very much like this:

VA – When you close your eyes do you see dead, burning bodies or wake up screaming?

Me – No. I don’t sleep much.

VA – What do you do when you can’t sleep?

Me – I take pills and drink

VA – I see. What do you drink and how often?

Me – I usually drink beer, about 6 to 12.…


The President announced his immigration reform

Posted on November 21, 2014 at 6:41am 10 Comments

After 27 year in the military (19 years active duty plus reserve time) I retired. I make roughly $2,500 a month. $500 of that is tax free. Because of the 14 years I spent on jump status in the airborne, I have pain issues caused by severe arthritis and compression fractures. But since the VA does not compensate for pain issues I get no disability…..just a portion of my pension that is not taxed. For many reasons (cost of living among them) I have moved overseas (following the laws of the…


It Used to be Easier

Posted on November 11, 2014 at 7:24am 4 Comments

I have had these bouts before. It was never bad. My family was always away so I never worried about my kids and I worked. When I felt this way I threw myself into work. Now I am retired. Sure, I go to school online.........but it is pretty damn hard to throw yourself into required online reading when part of the problem is inability to focus, When it was both physical and mental it was easier. Now my family is here and I force the smiles and try to get the inflection of my voice right. I…

Ha ha, we'll see about that. Trying to bust out of a bench plateau, goings been slow, but 5 3 1 is excellent for that.

I like doing dumbbell presses one arm at a time, really throws balance into the mix and involves the core muscles more. The 5 3 1 keeps me in the gym for an hour tops, letting me focus all my up-front energy on the major lift. Then I can go, or have play time with assistance work. As you can tell, I almost never skip assistance work.

I've spotted a guy with similar, his doctor told him to just not come down all the way to his chest on the bench; seemed to work for him.

But if you can't bench that way, I'm in agreement that you'll progress out of that weight quickly with dumbbells. I've seen you do your hybrid deadlift/squats and that's incredible weight you have there. Maybe you are past what the 5 3 1 can offer you? All I know it's been working with me, but then again I am way behind you strength-wise.

At 6:20am on July 11, 2014, Carl Monster said…

Hmmm...I don't use dumbbells for my core movements, it's the Olympic bar. I use dumbbells for the assistance work, and that certainly does not need to include dumbbells, it can be anything. To me that's the "fun" part because the core movements do get boring.

When I do the conversion to pounds I get 83; that's a heavy dumbbell.

If you need more than those I'd say you are already one strong mofo!
