have you tried using gloves intermittently for the callous problem?
I got the grip videos up right now...

Regarding gloves: no. It makes gripping the bar more difficult. And it still hurts my calluses lol...

^^^ have you ever used them? I used to have them in my old gym in Bombay. Arg...never again. My problem isn't my grip as much as the sensitivity of my delicate skin on my palm, bro. I hate that! And I used to do gardening and shit as a teenager and I still have soft hands. FML..

Deadlift Training
Mesocycle 18 - Week 4

Beginning Thoughts:
The world famous comedian had come to my University tonight for a show and I decided to attend it. It was hilarious!!!
Workout:
Deadlifts:
420 lbs x 2 reps
430 lbs x 2 reps
430 lbs x 5 reps
Several things to note here. First off: my grip failed. The 430x2 set involved me holding the bar right from the get go using just my fingers. My thumbs just deserted me. My form was naturally hideous. So basically, my grip was an over/under hook grip. WTF??? I was prepared for this on my last set and therefore I think my form was WAY better on the 430x5 set. It could've been better but my grip failed me. I know why this is though: sometimes when you do lots of grip training, your body needs time to adjust to it - like a lag period. So hopefully in the next few weeks my grip won't slip away from me.

Pistol Squats:
3 + 3 = 6 reps
I haven't done these in such a long time!!! I am gad I've been able to move my schedule around and fit them in. I will get better at them shortly. I want to hit 15 reps straight.

Swiss Ball Jack Pikes:
BW x 10 reps x 2 sets

Hand Extensions:
2 bands x 10 reps x 3 sets
Videos:
Deadlifts:

My boy Paul Roa hit a 405 Deadlift for 2 as well!!!
Overall Impression:
Gonna go see Valentine's Day tomorrow with the gf and then Shutter Island on Saturday. I also have a shitload of studying to do this weekend...With this being the last semester at school and the shitty condition of the job market I am becoming lesser and lesser motivated to excel at school. But, I know my hard work will pay off somewhere down the line. I hope.

Have a fun Friday everyone and thanks for dropping by!!!

Anuj wants to spend his days behind a desk. Of all the things I miss, a hard day's work out in the sun is always on the top 5.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.
