I came across this at a dollar store the other day:

Fake Sriracha

It's a FAAAKE!!1!

It's a FAAAKE!

Actually, it's just a different brand piggybacking on the popularity of Sriracha hot sauce. The real Sriracha hot sauce has a green cap and a rooster as the logo, and it should look like this:


This bottle should last a few more weeks. I need to stock up soon.

Anyway, onto the PRs:

PR's This Past Week

Only managed 2:

Paused Front Squat: 370 lb x 1 (No Belt 1RM)

+30 lb PR and matches my no belt front squat 1RM, and paused FS 1RM!

Wasn't sure if I could get this because my previous warm up set (330 lb) felt hard, but decided to go for it anyway, because...why not?

Overhead Press: 200 lb x 8 (8RM)

Previous best with 200 lb was 7. Cleaned (more like 'dirtied') off the floor, and had a hook grip throughout the set.

OHP 200 lb x 10...you will be mine. Followed by bodyweight OHP x 10. All in good time.

Other Training

Switch Kicks and Right & Left Roundhouse Kicks

My goal is to destroy this heavy bag with my bare shins.

My next goal would be to find a near indestructible Kevlar punching bag for cheap.

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.
