I worked the weekend and UE was booked solid on Monday, so I did the following WOW at Clemson University’s Fike Gym.
Hammer Chest Press
Cable Chest Fly
Barbell Squat 135 x 50
This was a very enjoyable workout. I think it is important to occasionally have that “15 year old kid in the garage” type workout and this definitely fit the bill. The high rep squats brought me back to the day of doing high reps because I was limited by how much I could press over my head.
Speaking of memories, I wanted to let everyone know that Drew Baye has released his series of essays from the late 1990’s. While everyone else was worrying about Y2K, Drew was busy churning out the original “WOW”. After every workout, while still delirious, he would write an essay on whatever topic came to mind. The title of this Cyberpump series was “Post Workout Delirium-Induced Ramblings” or PWDIR. These proved to be some of the most interesting articles I ever read. I remember anxiously waiting for my modem to connect to the Cyberpump website so I could read what was on Drew’s mind.
Recently, Drew has made available as an e-book the full series of PWDIR. I cannot believe it has been over a decade since these were originally released. Interestingly, the articles seem even more relevant today than they did back then. I highly recommend that you consider giving them a look.

Post your WOW’s and your own PWDIR’s
