    Fact.


    I've seen snow here once, and it wasn't even enough to put a light coat on the grass and they still let schools out early.

    Nope.

  7. Deadlift

    Warmup - rolled and mashed everything w the stick. Stretched, more rolling and mashing

    Bar x 1k
    135x6x3
    185x2x5
    225x2x3

    Work
    245x3
    275x3
    315x3
    Singles 335, 350, 360

    Assistance
    Snatch grip deads (index finger on the rings)
    225x5x3

    Pendlay's
    165x5x3

    Thoughts
    First day at db, got there there was one other dude there and it was like 30 degrees inside. Fcking cold, like hard to get loose cold. Sure enough, by the time I finished it warmed up. Others dude showed up and were floor pressing w chains, and another crew deadlifted when I finished.

    Introduced myself to everyone, JJ brought his dog, wife and 4 yr old. Achilles felt ok as long as I kept it stretched out. I think that'll be the norm going forward. Going tomorrow and do some light squatting. I guess there will be a crew doing back.

    Just trying to get to know everyone at this point. Oh yeah, there's a kegerator against the wall...

  8. Im impressed with the weight u are moving with your injury. hows it been feeling?

    Solid session man. Deads and rows always for the win. Is this a 5/3/1 setup with joker sets?

  10. A kegerator and deadlifts. I'm jealous.

    Thanks, I do a 351, it's one of wendlers variations. I just tossed some singles on at the end to test the Achilles. I've always done pendlay's for assistance, and judging by how my traps feel, the snatch grips are going to stay too.

    Txs bro keeping it stretched is going to be the key. It still pulls some times but that's scar tissue that I have to break up...

    To the left of that dude are the 3 benches, to the right is a platform w band attachments and there's another platform against the far wall under the board. It's pretty small.

    My goal is to somehow get on the board...

    Because pink weights are easier to lift. Gotcha.

  19. Nice! That is a nice size place too. I'm happy for you brother.

    Good lord I'm joking boys.... Can't believe everyone took me for serious Susan

  21. Ugh, pendlay's and snatch grips = upper back annihilation.

    I'm hoping I don't have to poop this morning, I don't think I could reach around to wipe.

    Carry on...

    Man, if you've never used a bidet, you're missing out, for real (no homo). It's a shower dedicated to your ass. Pretty sweet deal.

  25. I just use flushable moist wipes. It's like a unicorn licking your butt clean. No way I'm going to use government ordered single ply after having a mystical creature wipe your ass.

  26. Yeah, I don't think I'd be comfortable (said in my wife's accent: comFORTable) w ANYTHING squirting in that general area...

  27. Squats

    Warmup
    Stretch, mash, roll

    Bar 5x10

    95x5x5

    135x5x5

    185x3x3

    That was it, then rolled and mashed some more.

    Thoughts (other than I feel like the new kid in gym class)

    Well, it's over, and I was nervous. Got through it w/o any issues other than I'm weak as fck. Kept the Achilles stretched before and after each set. Had no intention going any heavier, I'll prolly back off to sets of 135 for a couple weeks. It was a balmy 45 in db today.

    Oh yeah, used a buffalo bar for the first time...

  28. Thoughts on the buffalo bar?

    Tbh, I only had 185 on it, didn't feel much different than a straight bar.

    I'm going to attempt to rebuild my squat from the ground up. Kept a narrowish stance and dropped pretty fast to get some bounce. Polar opposite of how I've always squatted. Don't foresee getting into the suit until I'm repping 315 again...

    Squats are the main thing bro. Gym looks badass, but no way I could get loose and train in 45 degrees
