This weekend I’m going to be very, very busy. This morning Lisa and I are grocery shopping and house cleaning, and I’ve also got a couple of meetings lined up. Aside from those tasks I’ve got a ton of work to on JSF BodyShop™ as we continue to prepare for the closed beta. If you missed yesterday’s update, be sure to check it out; there’s some brand new BodyShop news posted there.

Something most unexpected happened yesterday. Lisa was contacted by a friend who knows someone with a 2 year-old female bulldog/shar pei mix that needs a home. Her name is “LuLu”. If her current owner can’t place her this weekend, she’ll be going to the pound where she’ll likely be put to sleep within a week. Ever since Turtle died last March Loki seems to be enjoying life as the sole object of our affection, so Lisa and I agreed that we would not take in any new dogs. Of course once we learned of LuLu’s plight (and saw her pictures), logic went right out of the window. It doesn’t help that LuLu looks like she could be Turtle’s sister. With everything going on in our lives right now and the possibility that I might lose my job at some point during this year, this is about the worst time for us to take on a new pet. So of course LuLu is coming over for a visit this afternoon to meet us and Loki. We’ll see how it goes.

OK, I need to get going, but here was yesterday’s low volume, but very heavy, “core” back and biceps workout:

BACK
3 x 6 Deadlifts (+ 5 warmup/acclimation sets: 1×12, 1×8, 1×6, 1×2, 1×1)
3 x 6 Weighted wide-grip pull-ups

Biceps
3 x 6 DB curls
