When getting Back in the gym after time off from it, can’t really get into heavy lifting right away…

While it does feel real good to get back in a gym after time off from it due to pandemic, I really shouldn’t go crazy with the heavy lifting right away and I haven’t been. I’ve been going slightly lighter. It’s good to do that ’cause if you go wicked heavy right when you go in, you’re gonna feel so sore the next day you wouldn’t be able to walk around well… haha… knowing from my own experience. So I’m gonna take it easy for two weeks before I get back into serious lifting and strength training.

Yeah, I did lose a little bit of muscle probably but I can get it back. I’m back into powerlifting training on the big three: bench, deadlift and squat but like I said, taking it easy at first. Not gonna do any crazy heavy lifting just yet. I just gotta take some time to get used to the gym again, ya know?

When I do get back into serious strength training in powerlifting, I’m gonna really spend a lot of time trying to build up my pr numbers on the big three. Doing a lot of reading on powerlifting, I read that the secret to making quick progress is “never” missing a lift. You’re not gonna make progress by missing lifts all the time in powerlifting. I gotta stop missing lifts and maybe I’ll get somewhere soon.

If it wasn’t for this stupid pandemic, my powerlifting numbers would have had a major improvement but I’m gonna work on that for the rest of the year and all of next year. Focus on powerlifting. I’ll do still bodybuilding like always of course, I’ll never ignore hypertrophy training ’cause that’s important. I’m still gonna do those heavy sets and few reps on the big three.

I really want my pr numbers to go up and improve. I’m hoping to go over 300 lbs. on deadlift, hoping to get up to 200 lbs. on squat and bench too. Maybe a little more if I can.

I miss powerlifting training though and glad to get back into it finally. I really miss competing in powerlifting meets too as I didn’t get to do that this year. I wanted to compete for Albany Strength and wanted to compete for a USAPL meet since I registered for them but now all this pandemic shit happened. Someday I will compete in a powerlifting meet ’cause I love those. Maybe in 2021???? Cross fingers for now.

The future of Hollywood, will they ever go back to work? They are still shutdown…

Yeah, Hollywood is a mess right now… no doubt but many conservatives in America won’t publicly admit that they all watch movies and TV shows. Even through this pandemic while we are all on lockdown, that means Hollywood is on lockdown too. Many major movies and TV shows that were currently being made had to stop production. Movies that were already made before pandemic are being sent to streaming services and “on demand” releases ’cause many states in America don’t have movie theaters open. With no movie theaters open, that means there’s no where for Hollywood to release their films whether national or indie films. Future film releases go on streaming services or “On Demand” through TV like I said.

It’s harder to find new movies to watch ’cause with Hollywood out of work, that means directors, producers, screenwriters, actors, actresses are all stuck at home and they can’t give us any new entertainment as of this moment. Most of the movies getting released were made before the pandemic. Hollywood out of work, that means no film.

Believe it or not, Hollywood film people are all stuck at home like the rest of us. That’s why you’re seeing more movie stars online more often trying to entertain their fans in different ways: online q&a’s, live twitter chats, live stream, etc. Whatever.

Admittedly I do miss going to the movie theaters as I haven’t been in a movie theater in a couple of months. I still do try to catch new 2020 movie releases the best I can, though. I’m hoping movie theaters get back open this year and I’m sure they will come back. What will happen when movie theaters stay shut down through the Fall and Hollywood stays shut down? That means all the movies in the Fall will be pushed back even later and the new James Bond movie which is supposed to be the biggest movie of the year may not get released in theaters at all and might get an “on Demand” release. Same might happen with Spielberg’s remake of “West Side Story” and the Dune remake. We’ll have to see wait and see what happens.

You may think it or may not care but Hollywood is suffering through this pandemic. Yeah, Hollywood is in a lot of trouble right now with all this “pedo” stuff and the “Me too” movement but it’ll all calm down soon, I’m sure.

I still like to watch movies and you do too, admit it.

Why live wrestling shows with an actual crowd is important…

Yeah, even through this dumb covid-19 pandemic which is still going on, I still watch my wrestling. I try to keep up with RAW, NXT, Smackdown and the ppvs. In the beginning, the WWE started to have shows with no crowd at all. Now they brought back the live crowd but at a small capacity. The only problem with that, though, the live crowd with a small capacity are mostly wrestlers from NXT… and they are starting to bring back actual WWE fans too.

Even though the WWE are trying to bring back the fans, watching wrestling is still hard to watch and pretty boring. I just continue to watch wrestling ’cause there’s nothing better to do at night, ya know? Most of my TV watching is always at night. I never watch TV and streaming services during the day.

Anyhow, live wrestling in huge arenas full of fans is very important ’cause that’s what the wrestling business perform these shows for to begin with… they do these shows for the fans. That’s why these guys do what they do, perform for the fans. Fans in the crowd are important to wrestling shows ’cause it helps make the show feel a lot more lively, you get what I mean? It’s important for wrestlers to get over with the crowd whether they are heels or babyfaces. In wrestling terms, a heel means the badguy wrestler and babyfaces mean the good guy wrestler aka the hero. It’s important for wrestlers to perform for a live crowd so the crowd can boo the heels and cheer the babyfaces. Sometimes in wrestling it isn’t always like that, though… sometimes the crowd does cheer the heels whenever they like him and boo the baby faces. Examples of crowds cheering the heel wrestlers would be Triple H and Stone Cold Steve Austin when they started out as heels but fans started cheering for them… examples of fans booing the babyfaces would be John Cena for sure. Even though, John Cena was always a good guy, fans would boo him anyways. It’s fun to hear the crowd reactions ’cause it’s interesting to see them being honest on who they like and who don’t like. They also boo Roman Reigns even though he’s a babyface wrestler.

Listening to the crowd during wrestling shows, it’s the crowd that helps keep the matches exciting. There’s nothing like it when you see two wrestlers in the ring when they take a swing at each other with their arms and the audience goes “Oooooh”, “aaaaaah”, each time… and whenever a wrestler takes a nasty bump, they’ll chant “holy shit” or “this is awesome”.

Admittedly, I miss the live crowd during wrestling shows. When this covid-19 bullshit is all over and done with, I’m sure WWE will go back to doing shows at arenas and do their Wrestlemanias at stadiums. I miss all that myself but they’ll get back to all that. We just gotta wait longer, I guess.

I don’t know why non-wrestling fans criticize wrestling. I think it’s so much fun to watch, in my opinion. I’ve been a wrestling nerd my whole life, ever since I was a kid and still am a lover of wrestling today. Who are my favorite wrestlers you may ask???

Well… my all time favorites… I’ll have to go with Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Warrior, Owen Hart, CM Punk, Jericho, Randy Savage aka the Macho Man and Undertaker can get thrown in the list for sure. Also, Bret Hart.

As for today’s favorite wrestlers in today’s industry, I’m gonna go with AJ Styles, Bray Wyatt, Finn Balor and Aleister Black. I would also pick Asuka from the women’s division.

Sure, the WWE is not the best anymore like it used to be in the 80’s and 90’s but I just continue to watch ’cause I respect the industry.

Looks like I’m gonna be without a gym for a while longer thanks to douchebag Cuomo…

Everybody kept thinking that gyms were going re-open in NY ’cause of Phase 4 but Gov. Cuomo was never clear or not on if gyms were a part of phase 4 re-opening in NY state. Then Cuomo responds claiming that gyms are not part of Phase 4 which is bullshit since Phase 4 clearly falls under education, recreation, arts and entertainment. I mean, you would think that “gyms” would fall under “recreation”, right? Then Cuomo claims that’s not he what he meant, huh??? This also includes malls and movie theaters staying closed that would fall under “arts” and “entertainment” in Phase 4.

https://www.ny1.com/nyc/all-boroughs/news/2020/06/30/omitted-from-phase-four-reopening–gym-owners-gear-up-to-sue

I’m not gonna lie that NY being without gyms during this stupid lockdown is getting to me a little bit. I am going a little crazy, honestly ’cause if it weren’t for this stupid lockdown, I would have been going to the gym all summer continuing to get those bodybuilding gains and bringing up pr’s in powerlifting.

As you can see in the article I posted above, 100’s of gym owners are angry about it too and they’re suing the state to fight back… hoping to get the gym’s re-opened.

There’s no reason to keep gyms closed ’cause it’s all about control and power, in my opinion. Keeping gyms closed and forcing people to not get any exercise is not cool. A lot of us can’t have our own home gym ’cause of no space or can’t afford our own home gym.

This really sucks for weightlifters. Not being able to lift weights and lose all your progress and lose all of your years of hard work? Ugggggghhh… I’m not ready for that. It would suck that we had to go without gyms for the rest of the year but we can get gyms back open… we just gotta keep pressuring Cuomo so I’m glad all those NY gym owners filed lawsuit and fighting back.

I hope the gyms get back open this year ’cause as soon as it does, I’m going right back on the first day and I’ll be working harder than ever on the weightlifting. Yeah, I probably lost some muscle and strength but I’ll work really hard to get it all back.

There really is no reason to keep gyms closed as long as masks and social distancing works. Lefties can go out there and protest and destroy things but we can’t get in a good workout??? Yup, you can’t get covid-19 rioting and looting but you can get it going to the gym. Fucking unreal. Liberalism is getting more and more insane.

I miss the gym badly though ’cause it’s like my 2nd home really. My home away from home. It’s what I do to get away from everything. Weightlifting my passion.

More thoughts on the Coronavirus pandemic… it almost feels like the Walking Dead or those Mad Max movies… getting there…

Each time I go out in public, I almost feel like I’m in the Walking Dead or in those Mad Max movies… maybe Zombieland or “Contagion” or something like that… the George A. Romero flicks… blah blah blah…. the United States and the rest of the world starting to look like that.

Dead towns and dead cities with no one around at all but staying at home. There are people that still go out but only to go grocery shopping, get some supplies or get takeout food. That’s all you can do around here.

Even though most everything are closed, I still try to get out of the house somehow… just to go to the store or go for a ride with someone somewhere… just to get out ’cause this “stay at home” thing is really getting on my nerves now. Admittedly, I am mostly a homebody kind of guy but I only go out of the house to go to the gym, go for a walk or a bike ride or go shopping and see a movie in the theaters. Since I can no longer go to the gym, go shopping and go see a movie… I’m home a lot more. Yeah, admittedly I don’t work… have been unemployed for a long while but when the country opens back up, I’m gonna do my best to look for a job.

Anyhow, I find it scary that people are panicking over this virus. I’m not gonna panic and not gonna live in fear ’cause it’s not a good thing to do. People wearing masks and gloves everywhere out in public… that actually scares me more than the virus. People taking the news seriously. The news successfully got us to stay home and stay away from people… they’ve successfully killed the handshake and hugs, now they’re trying to get us to stay inside since the so-called death numbers are going up. If that isn’t more proof that the media creates panic then I don’t know what else it is.

They should be spreading positivity and calming people down instead of spreading panic. All this panic is all on the media. You turn on the news and all you do is see them trying to scare people to death. That’s more scary than the virus, in my opinion.

All the death numbers being thrown around are inaccurate at best and Dr. Fauci is a clown who isn’t to be trusted.

Whether or not the virus is real or fake, I don’t care either way, I’m not panicking. That’s not how I roll. I’ve always been the type of guy who isn’t afraid of anyone or anything. It’s understandable that people are scared for their lives but they really need to stop watching the news.

To keep myself busy during the shutdown, I just bought a bunch of albums from Itunes (about 12 albums) and 5 books for my Ipad ’cause I know you can’t go shopping out there at the time being. Buying a bunch of albums and books is something I won’t do again in a long time, just for this one time to keep myself occupied and help defeat boredom during this shutdown since you can’t go anywhere, ya know??? It sucks.

May as well shop digitally which I did. I’ve been trying to keep myself busy while stuck at home too…..

….. playing my guitar, working on music, playing video games, watching streaming services, doing some reading, doing some home workouts and I’m starting to go out for long walks since the warm weather is just about here.

This shutdown sucks and I hate it so much but we’ll get back to normal real soon.

Hope you all are doing well out there and stay strong.

I think the movie “Contagion” just came true… did the movie predict what may happen?

Everything going on right now in real life just happened in that movie “Contagion”… a movie directed by Steven Soderbergh and a film that has an all-star cast. A sci-fi thriller film that is about a virus outbreak and America goes to shutdown. It seems that in the movie they try to practice social distancing just like happening in real life right now.

I’ve seen “Contagion” several times before and they had this idea long before covid-19 and everything in that film is dead-on of what’s going on now. Crazy if you think about it but watch the old trailer and you’ll see what I mean.

I’m sure many of you have seen the movie too. haha…. Now I’m thinking that “Contagion” just predicted of what may happen in the future and we’re living in that right now.

How I’m doing in this time of the coronapacolypse… yes, it will be all over real fast…

Well NY State is in lockdown. It has been for a while now and will probably be on for a long while, hopefully not. I’m predicting this virus called the Corona Virus aka “covid-19” will disappear real quick and everything will get back to normal.

As for how I’m doing in this awful lockdown which is unnecessary and pointless, huge waste of time… I’m doing good but at the same time already getting sick of this boredom. I don’t believe in this “stay at home” campaign and not buying into this “social distancing” nonsense but since NY is in a lockdown may as well sit home and do nothing. A lot of businesses are closed out there in NY State and all gyms are closed. I can’t go shopping anywhere, can’t go to the movies, can’t go out to eat anywhere and can’t go to the gym. Fucking crazy and bullshit if you ask me. So here at home I stay, bored out of my mind.

I hear ya, though ’cause I’m sure everyone else is bored to death staying at home. That’s why internet traffic has skyrocketed lately. Everybody’s online now ’cause they’re bored. It’s why musicians are streaming live concerts at their homes and why celebrities are doing Q & A sessions with their fans via live streaming.

While everyone is stuck at home… we’re trying our best to find things to do to keep ourselves entertained and try our best to entertain others during these trying times. Even though this “covid19” virus is not serious at all, we’re getting massive drops everywhere in the world… yes, I’ll admit that times are tough but what you are all seeing is nothing but government control. Many people don’t think so but the government can control your lives easily… they can control every aspect of your life and they can keep you indoors whenever they wanted. This is what’s going on. If you don’t think they have that power, I wanna know what drugs you’re using? The government shutting down the country, shutting down the economy and shutting down our freedoms. It seems like we’re under house arrest by the government and that’s exactly what this is.

I try my best to tell everyone to calm down, chill and relax. I try my best to tell everyone that this virus is not that serious. There are more recoveries of covid19 than death. The death rates are so low and there are more recoveries. Look at all the stats for proof on that… but each time I show the stats and numbers, people refuse to believe them. They’ll never accept the truth that the death rate is so low everywhere.

They all want to believe that “covid19” is a death sentence when it isn’t. People have survived from it and recovering. Why aren’t the media talking about that? Instead they want to talk about the high number of cases instead of the recoveries and no mention of the low death numbers. They’re all getting brainwashed by Fake New Media like usual. They’re just doing whatever it takes to keep people in panic.

Whenever I show people the low death numbers, they get so mad. Why? Is it because they can’t take the truth that this virus isn’t that serious? They can’t take the truth that the media is lying to you?

Really this virus is not that serious at all… cases of covid19 is dropping massively in China and I think they stopped the tests so that’s a good sign to come. This thing will disappear real quickly and I predict things will get back to normal in the beginning of April… maybe a little later than that but hopefully not too late. This coronapacolypse won’t last throughout the summer that’s for sure.

I understand that people are scared but I’m not gonna live in fear of this. I’m gonna remain calm and strong but somehow that upsets people. When they see that I’m calm and strong, it seems they hate that so much. They would say whatever they can to get me all “panicky” and that’s what they try to do. Trying to get me take the virus more seriously. Well, I’m not going to ’cause living in fear is not good for the mind and soul. You’re just letting the media win by living in “panic” and I’m not going to let them manipulate me ’cause that’s what they’re paid to do.

There was no reason for this shut down of America. It wasn’t all because of the covid19 virus at all… I’m not buying the hype. It was all for political power and gain, nothing more. Just Democrats and Media using covid-19 as a way to bring down Trump and that’s all I see it as. They see it as another Trump take-down. Democrats also see it as a way to destroy the country’s economy.

And also, this is just the swamp going berserk because of all them powerful CEO’s stepping down. Why would all those CEO’s step down before all this started? Those CEO’s including Bill Gates stepping down? What are they hiding about the coronavirus? They are hiding something, that’s for sure.

This is scary stuff though and I’ve never seen anything like it. This is what Democrats destroying America looks like and if you don’t think they have the power to destroy America just like that, I wanna know what planet you’re on? Of course, all of this is political.

Sure, Trump maybe all for this “social distancing” and shutting down the country ’cause of covid-19 but that’s the president’s job. He have to take it seriously ’cause that’s what presidents do. Sooner or later, though, Trump will one day realize this virus isn’t that serious and soon he’ll start to request that America should get back open. Just watch, I know my prediction will be right. Once we get back to normal, our economy will be even stronger than ever before.

Hope you all are doing okay out there. I’m sure am. Yeah, times are tough right now, I’ll admit it but we’ll get back to normal real quick. I’m just doing whatever during these tough times to make the best of it. All I’ve been doing is playing my guitar, listening to podcasts, playing video games, read books and watch streaming services at night. That’s my way of trying to defeat boredom.

Anyhow, hope you enjoy my pic above. I’m trying out for a new look. Going for the mustache look and I’m digging it a lot so I’ll keep it. The mustache look reminds me of the Allman Brothers and Grateful Dead, lol. I’ll keep it I think ’cause the mustache look makes me look a lot older. I’m fine with that.

Hope you all are doing well for the most part. It’s all going to be okay.

Why live streaming with musicians is becoming a thing… I might do a live stream as well…

So a lot of bands & musicians whether local or national has been doing live streams like crazy on the internet. They’ve been doing live stream acoustic shows at their homes through FB, instagram, twitter, etc. Why has free live stream performances by bands and artists exploded all of a sudden?

Well for one, since a lot of tours and concerts have been cancelled, many musicians are stuck at home now. Yup, ’cause of covid-19 and being quarantined. Many taking part in social distancing and all that shit.

The thing is now that musicians are holed up at home, they got nothing to do and many of them are just bored to death and they want to keep making & playing music. Many bands & artists decided to start writing songs for their next record during this quarantine and many of them are doing their concerts live on the internet instead which is a good idea.

Another reason for the live streaming is that bands & music artists just want to play music for their fans as a way to help get them through covid-19. Music is a healer and they want to help get rid of “stress” through these difficult times we’re in. Since a lot of music fans are holed up at home and many of us are bored, bands & music artists just want to continue to entertain us via live on the internet.

I’m glad “live stream” is finally a thing, though and I’m gonna join the bandwagon real soon. I’d like to do a live stream show of me doing cover songs ’cause I don’t have a new batch of originals yet. So my live stream would be cover songs only. I’m planning on doing a live streaming for two nights, both shows being a 10 – 12 song set which would probably be about an hour or so.

I’ve written down a list of all the cover songs I wanna do and came up with some great ideas. I think it’s important that I should do a bunch of cover songs that people know well and love. I’m going to be doing everything from old stuff to new stuff. Mostly hit songs you hear on the radio and stuff. I’ll be doing everything from oldies to classic rock to metal. All of it on acoustic. I think it’ll be fun. People will be surprised of the cover songs I’m about to pick.

This could happen in a few weeks. I need time to rehearse songs and might learn a few more.

So gyms are closed… don’t worry about losing muscle and strength for a few weeks…

 

So a lot of gyms all across America are closing left & right and before you know it, all gyms will be closed. If your gym is closed, I’m sure you all are freakin’ out about it… you’re probably like, “Oh no, I’m going to lose all my muscle and strength. Lose all my hard work and gains!”.

Um, no you won’t. A lot of gyms out there are only going to be closed for a few weeks and you won’t lose muscle in a few weeks. If you’re not working out, yes, your muscle will start to atrophy but that’s not gonna happen right away.

Not too long ago when I took a month off to heal a leg injury, I came back from the gym and didn’t really lose any strength at all. I’ve noticed that. I didn’t lose my bench press, deadlift and squat numbers at all. I was still doing 40 lb. dumbbell arm curls too. So I would assume that it takes a few months for muscle to start to atrophy.

Years of hard work, you won’t lose even if you take a little break from it.

It’s funny, ya know. I took a little break from the gym not too long ago to heal a leg injury but looks like I’ve got to take a little break from working out again due to all the gym closures.

Anyhow, if you still feel the need to work out, you can do a bunch of body weight workouts at home like all the workouts Arnold just posted on his instagram for example. You just gotta be creative and think. Do bodyworkouts, do yoga and all kinds of stretching. Lots of possibilities. If you don’t have access to a gym, you can workout anywhere.

I’m not gonna lie that I’m pretty bummed about gym closings too but what are ya gonna do, ya know? It’s only for a few weeks, I hope. When gyms get back open, I’m gonna get back to training real hard all Summer long.

Also, think of as gyms closing down as an opportunity to rest and heal. Your body and cns probably needs a little break and if you have injuries, it’s a good opportunity to heal all injuries too ’cause I know you’re probably hiding a few minor injuries, lol.

You don’t always need a gym to workout in. If you need your cardio, forget all those cardio machines in the gym… you can go for a walk outside and ride your bike. Walking outside and riding bike is not cancelled so go for it.

Covid-19 aka the Chinese Virus thoughts… things will get back to normal real soon… just hang in there and don’t panic!!!

89740894_2832889236823645_8982914036475625472_o.jpg

I’ve never seen so much hysteria in my life. All of this is totally unreal but don’t worry, y’all. I’m not gonna live in fear and panic over a virus that started in China which only killed 70 people or more in the US. The China Virus aka the Corona Virus (Covid-19, is what they’re also calling it). This isn’t a serious virus at all but I find it pretty comedic how the world is acting like we’re on the brink of apocalypse and the world has become big time germophobes all of a sudden.

Grocery stores are pretty much empty and suddenly, the world is now obsessed with toilet paper? This is like fucking madness, yo. Why are people hoarding lots of food and toilet paper? Well, I think the obvious answer to that are Democrats in Congress. They told Americans to stock up on food and toilet paper ’cause you never know we could end up in an apocalypse sooner or later… either that or Americans empty grocery stores ’cause they are in fear of going broke.

When this all started, bands started cancelling & postponing their tours and the same has been happening to sporting events & games. Now some states are in a full lockdown like NY State is in right now. In NY State, Cuomo ordered that all gyms and movie theaters in NY to close down for a few weeks. Restaurants are still open but many are only allowing take-out, I believe some bars around NY are only allowing 50 capacity or lower. Correct me if I’m getting some of this wrong, haha.

Ever since this China Virus started, I have been going to the gym obsessively 4 days a week ’cause I’m just getting back into my 4 day a week routine and now my local gym is closed. haha… this fucking sucks.

I’m not taking the virus hype seriously at all. I’m not gonna live in panic and fear. Not gonna distance myself from people and not gonna isolate myself. I’m also not gonna self-quarantine. I’m just gonna continue to live my life the way I want to and not let any of this “fear” get to me.

Obviously, this virus was pushed out by the mainstream media and Democrats in Congress. Of course, most people in America are taking this virus way too serious ’cause they believe everything the news tell them still.

Times are crazy right now but hang in there, y’all. Everything will get back to normal real soon. “Social distancing” isn’t good for America at all and hopefully it won’t be a forever thing. This virus has costed the handshake so that’s pretty much gone forever, though.

Yeah, the gym maybe closed but I’m going to figure out ways to workout at home or I could find someone who has a home home gym ’cause I think I may know someone who does.

Chill. Relax, folks. We’re not gonna end up being like the Walking Dead or those Mad Max movies. Although it is fun to think like that. The president will figure out a way for us to get back to normal again.

I gotta say though, if you don’t think Democrats are using the China Virus as an opportunity to destroy the American economy, I wanna know what drugs you are using? This is gonna hurt a lot of jobs and businesses. This is what a Hillary or Bernie presidency would have looked like. This is why you gotta stop supporting and voting Democrats in office ’cause this is exactly what you see, a pretty good example.

Although Democrats are trying to destroy America with this virus as a weapon, they’ll once again fail ’cause the virus will do nothing but make the American economy even stronger. Just wait for it.

There is no need to shut down America over this ’cause that’s just silly. A virus that only caused 70 deaths and it is curable… we’ve dealt with much worse in the past like 9/11 for starters, we’ve gone through two World Wars, dealt with many terrorist attacks. America also has a problem with cancer, the flu which people has died from and people dying from drugs and becoming victims of crime… yet you’re all worried about a virus that’s not that serious? Wow. Unfucking-believable.

This is why you gotta stop trusting the national news media… they’re the enemy of the people, they don’t care about you. They’re the ones that started all this panic for political power. I’d say cancel the media forever. The world would be a better place without them.
