No worries pal.  I live just outside of Detroit.  Only a four hour drive for me.  Plus, I happen to think Pittsburg is a pretty cool city on top of being able to support my getbig brother.

Garcia/Benavidez tonight bro.  {Sat.}

This is a good fight.  Benavidez has only lost to Crawford and Garcia just competes with everyone he fights.  I think 154 is gonna be too big for Danny to win the title but who knows.  I'm getting nervous that Crawford vs Spence is not going to get made.  If they don't fight each other next, I hope they both lose in their next fights.  Are you familiar with "Boots" Ennis?  He's the real deal and would probably be even money vs either Spence or Crawford.

Yup, it should be a good one Danny said he always busted ass to get to 147 the last few year and feels great at 154....Jose` has to look out for that "no look left hook" of Dannys.

Ennis......is in a word AWESOME.

Sick of hearing the Spence/Crawford BS....I know it`s business and it`ll be a multi-fight deal but as referee Mills Lane used to say..."Lets get t on"...Christ I`m sick of hearing about to the point that I`m almost losing interest in it.

It's shit like Crawford-Spence and Manny-Floyd taking so long and after guys are past their primes that makes me appreciate the UFC that much more.  That shit just doesn't happen.  1 belt per division and if you fight your way to the top, you get your shot.  You know, how boxing used to be. 

If Joshua loses to Usyk again, I'd still love to see Joshua and Wilder finally go at it.

REST DAY:

Was busy all day and actually did something I wanted to try anyway,though I know it`s not a great scenario I had literally no time to eat properly and no food pre-prepped which is a rarity.

5 shakes spaced out during the day,all containing 1 scoop of whey in water with 1 cup of dry oats mixed into shake

Also drank a ton of water and had a couple of bananas......back to strictly business as usual today.

Do you use the egg whites that come in the carton or do you separate the egg yolks yourself?

I seperate them,and give some yolks to my dogs for a healthy/shiny coat and also to my few outside casts who live in the barn.....the rest I throw away.

Last week a friends brother who raises chickens sold me 8 1/2 dozen eggs for a whopping 5 dollars.

Called him several times today for more but he was busy with the wife and kids.

He raises ducks also...............hmmmn nn....wonder if he grows any Walla Walla onions ???  ;D

Just got another 8+1/2 dozen eggs again for 5 bucks......gave him 25 dollars and told him when I`m done eating them I`ll pick up the next batch...it was cool cuz I was carrying a Luger while wearing a trench coat and a fedora as we made the deal.......also it had rained so it was a bit foggy.

Joined a sweet gym today......it`s only 9 months old.....ran by great people.....I couldn`t do justice to training legs at home though they were getting sore and slowly responding but for next years Masters Nats.....that wan`t gonna` cut it.

Only drawback is that it`s a 100 mile round trip so I joined by the month and will go there once weekly for high volume as my legs get used to the machines again.......right now,I can barely walk............got a key fob and you can train any time of day or night unsupervised.....talk about old school.


Quads,Hamstrings/Low Back,Calves:
Leg Press -
1 plate per side 20 - warmup
2 plates per side 15
3 plates per side 12
4 plates per side 12
5 plates per side 10
6 plates per side 8
All rock bottom slow and controlled.

Leg Extensions-4 X 15 with 85 pounds
Seated Leg Curls - 4 X 15 with 100 pounds
Hyperextensions - 3 x 20 no weight.....nice and slow
Seated Calf Raise - 5 X failure

Fucking great workout.....hope I can walk tomorrow.,

Oh I also have Covid as does my wife and mother in law......I`m recovering well.....them,not as fast.

TRAIN HARD
