Southern Chinese Kung Fu.

Invented by Wing Chun herself.

Perfected by Yip Man.

Made famous by Bruce Lee.

Further made famous by Donnie Yen and Robert Downey Jr.



but speaking of bulking...eating so much gets old quick! I can only keep it up for like a week or two at a time. So I keep gaining and losing the same 6 pounds. It's harder than the lifting! :lol:

you're right. it totally is! I know the feeling. eat yourself sick, then lift yourself exhausted. it's a perfect system!

you just gotta eat like a champ and put it down. (or, DON'T put it down, if you mean the fork)

Came in to work today, and with no prior notice, we were told we'd be doing the PAT. So I'm logging it in as progress. Knocked 15 seconds off my time. Did it in October in 4 minutes 4 seconds. Today I did it in 3 minutes and 49 seconds.

Congrats! Looks like those injuries you had didn't keep you from improving your fitness over last October.

Thanks. As much as I'd like to be optimistic and agree with you, I can't underestimate the effect of course-familiarity. The last time I did this particular course was the first time. This time I knew where to go and what to do for each task. I think that played a large part.

Wow...had to do some SERIOUS de-loading today. I guess that's what happens when you don't lift for 2 weeks and stop eating as much as you should be.

Bench Press:
Warm up 135 x 5
170 x 3
165 x 1
155 x 3 x 4
135 x 6

Overhead Press:
85 x 5 x 5

Dips:
3 sets of 5

Dumbbell Flies:
30s x 10 x 3

Eliptical - as hard and fast as I could go for 5:17 (the max time of the PAT)

Shameful.

1 hour of Wing Chun
