Can Human Trafficking Be Prevented At This Year’s Super Bowl?

This past Saturday marked Human Trafficking Awareness day, and few places could value awareness of this tragic industry like New Jersey.
The Super Bowl being held in New Jersey will be one of the largest televised events this year, and is highly anticipated by many for very different reasons.
The annual event is known for its economic opportunity; advertisers, service providers, and local businesses of all kinds prepare for the added demand from visitors interested in either the football game or the accompanying entertainment.
In that sense human traffickers are no different. Ads have already begun surfacing on the internet, and this year’s law enforcement response will involve more than just police officers and awareness groups.

Failed at setting a new PR for my Squat

Spectacularly failed to even reach 350 with my Squat Max, while I intended to break into the 400s today. Come from every lost battle with a strategy for victory. I’ve already begun reassessing technique and contemplating program modifications to help. My problem is getting that damn weight out of the hole. And having the balls to go into the hole quickly in the first place. Gotta work on those.

I’m getting #1 and #2 next week. Hopefully this will help my grip problems on the Deadlift movement!

Broke my old bench PR

I never thought I’d ever really get past 300 lbs on the Bench Press, and even barely that. I actually was able to breakthrough 325lbs. Going back and doing some research really helped. I gotta do that frequently.

Going to try for a new PR in the Bench Press today

My goal will be to at least break 300lbs with a little spotter guidance (at this stage I’m not competing yet, just training for the sake of it, so I can deal with some spotter help). Hope I can find a spotter though, I’m usually too shy to ask (especially since I’ve actually gotten deaded before on getting a spot. o_O I didn’t know that could even happened.)

you need to come running with a skinny nigga, get them lungs working better and your grip will be like a crab on a dogs tail.

Lmao! Crab on a dog’s tail! I’m gonna try to cop these since I have money now and I should have been training with them for a while to be honest.

Fucked up on my PR for my Deadlift

Nothing’s more frustrating than struggling with a weight you were gaining control of a few months ago.

Fucking lost the grip on my 500lb Deadlift attempt today. Clearly I need more grip strength so I can stop plateauing at this weight (I’ve been here for nearly 4 years…)

I guess now that I have a job it’s time to get some grip training clamps. Hopefully it’ll update my outdated and limited grip training (week in, and week out of plate pinchers…)
