My trainer is only available at 1:00PM, which sits right in the middle of my weight lifting workout.


  • Right knee pain below the patella when preparing for fourth set. Didn't want to take any chances of getting injured so stopped.

Bench Press

  • First set hit left safety pin and did not touch my chest for some reason.
  • Failed on 4th try.

Muay Thai

  • Stamina is gradually getting better.
  • Right swing kicks feel more effortless, faster and powerful.
  • Felt a strange sensation on the bottom of my left foot during pads. I looked at it during the session and it didn't look like anything.
  • After pad training I sat on the floor and saw a flap of skin on near the balls of my foot ripped open. Painful when I walk on it.
  • Because of this I skipped deadlifts.

Ever since I started taking strength training seriously, I was bitten by the Iron Bug. Then it burrowed under my skin and laid eggs in my heart. Now those eggs are hatching and I... the feeling is indescribable.
