dexter season 5. well, that was a "nice" twist at the end of season 4.

i really liked rita in the beginning; she was naive when it came to knowing anything about dexter, but she started to grow from a doormat into a person who didn't want to make the same mistakes again, so she put her foot down when it looked to her like dexter was headed down the same path as paul. i thought she was an excellent character.

but then came the giant boob job. sorry. that was the somewhat jarring, obvious change, but not really my biggest complaint. ;)

lately she had become very demanding, and everything had to be just so to please her, and i was getting pretty tired of her pushing dexter around and giving him the cold shoulder when he didn't jump immediately. also, hypocritical much about keeping secrets? yeah, dexter is a closed-off, unemotional guy, but he's always been like that, and not letting him have any space whatsoever wasn't gonna change him. i don't like the whole idea of marrying somebody with the implicit goal of changing them to better suit you. also, how about birth control? maybe just a little chat about what you're planning for the future, during which one might bring up having more kids? i expected better from her (well, better from the writers, really).


40 days: day 22 (week 4)

workout D: 10 "tonic" reps of a very light weight to rest after a day of heavier singles. well, that's what it was supposed to be, but i was feeling strong, and didn't want to waste it.

Warmup
4:00 min ATG squat

and again no warmup except for the ATG squat. well, the weights are warmup weight today anyway.

Standing Barbell Shoulder Press (OHP)
4x10 @ 45 lb
volume: 1800

super-tonic. ;) felt pretty good today, but am supposed to do only "tonic" weights. so, up went the empty bar, as explosively as i could, with minimum rest between sets.

Barbell Deadlift
4x10 @ 105 lb
volume: 4200

this really greases the groove.

Two-Arm Kettlebell Swing
2x10 @ 23 lb
volume: 460

two short sets of shwingy goodness.

One-Arm Dumbbell Row
4x10 @ 25 lb
volume: 1000

shorter sets here too, in order to keep the workout "tonic".

Rotational Kettlebell Deadlift
2x10 @ 43 lb
volume: 860

as usual. didn't cut this down because it isn't much to begin with.

Dumbbell Side Lateral Raise
2x10 @ 6 lb
volume: 120

and short sets as well, but one set feels like nothing, so i did two.


total volume: 8440 lb -- wow, that volume really adds up quick, even though this felt like a super-light workout.

As someone watching Dexter for the first time through (currently on Season 4), I'm carefully avoiding most of your writing about it!

I know there are a number of people who think Dexter went way downhill after season 4, but I think season 5 is the strongest. It's the only season that really made me hate the villains as much as Dexter hated them.
