Hello, Currently I'm Unironically reading [i]Infinite Jest[/i]. I'm about 70 pages in (including its infamous footnotes) [Kindle version - I"m not carrying around a fucking thousand page book. Actually I'm reading it on my ipad, it's super useful because i can also carry all of my music on it and my teaching materials as well, so that i can just pull up whatever i feel like working on with a student wherever i am and print it out so they can have a copy without forcing them to buy a book or needing to remember to print out a bunch of shit 20 minutes before a lesson and end up getting there to the studio late and then i'm scramblin' to teach them some new BS before the next student shows up and i have to cut their time short as well-- you have to be on time with these soccer moms and shit. So anyway I'm reading the footnote compliation of the Incandenza father's filmography (James iirc - my ipad is charging and i don't feel like looking at it rn). I had to put it down because I had to pee, and decided that a pee break was a good time to start a thread about books and workouts. But anyway yeah really good book. I used to hate reading. I think that's turning around. Short blurb - also been listening to Nietzsche on Audible, currently plodding through The Gay Science. It's alright. If you've read/listened to it i don't really need to talk about it. I like the narrorator's voice. (The guy who narrated Kierkegaard's [i]The Concept of Anxiety[/i] sucked ass, couldn't finish listening to it) Current workout reoutine: I'm on a full week rotation rn: Arms, core, legs, Arms, core, legs, Rest day. Repeat. I will switch it up occasionally and I try to vary my actual exercises. For example I won't do leg press 3 leg day's in a row, i'll instead vary whatever I'm doing. It keeps it interesting. For example this week I'm trying farm carries for the first time instead of shoulder shrugs, but will also work on my grip strength, (which is already rock solid as i'm an upright bass player). It's kind of hard because my local Planet Fitness gets chock full of highschool students bumbling around because it's down the street from the local HS, and for some reason they're still there 3 hours later at 530 when i come after work. Like wtf kids don't you have homework? get lost. Honestly though I have no idea what i'm doing haha. But i'm not as disgusting as I was a year ago. Feel me? I skipped today however, Sunday is normally my rest day but I think i'm going to do a combined core-leg day because i've been eating a lot this week. I'm not on any specific diet, no protein shakes, no BCAAs etc etc. No creatine. Honestly this is just more about being in shape in general, not bulking or building, yeah? ANy suggestions about workout routines? What books are you reading (or listening via your Amazon®️ Audible™ app)?
