So, the title of the log is more in reference to the music I prefer as opposed to how much weight I lift. A little history about me...worked out for about 10 years, had a torn ACL near the end there, but lost my edge and had some personal things go a little awry. Took 3 years completely off before starting again which was about a year ago, but I've actually been serious about it for about 6 months now. I only workout twice a week, due to life circumstances, yet I've made great progress with it while losing 30lb over the past 6 months. This past week's workouts are as follows:
Log Clean and Strict Press 6x135, 6x145, 6x155
One Arm DB Snatch 5x5x70
Standing 1-arm DB Press 3x5x70
Upright Row 3x10x65
Close Grip Pushup 4x10
Olympic Deadlift 3x5x275
Traditional Deadlift 3x315, 3x365, 2x385, 1x395
"Farmer" Deadlift 5x8x290
Pullups 12 singles
I workout out in my backyard with equipment I bought when I was getting into Strongman training before the ACL injury.
I'm weighing in around 238-242 and still losing. I'll probably go for another 20lb to lose before starting a clean bulk.

Looks like you and I have pretty much the same body, eh? Lol I'm at around that weight too and I'm going to go down to 210 and then clean bulk to 225.
Fricken love strongman, and you better believe I'm subbed for that.
What kind of heavy metal? I'm into Norse Heavy Metal right now, or Pagan Death Metal (specifically amon amarth), but from there I'm pretty much 100% okay with anything heavy metal. Hardcore too. Hatebreed it up on dem OHP's, bRah.

Right on man.
I like all types of metal really, but mostly various forms of death and black, such as Old Man's Child, A Hill To Die Upon, Cannibal Corpse, Wintersun, Stormlord...but I also enjoy sludge like Eyehategod and Crowbar. But never hardcore

Monday's workout was nothing to note due to getting sick.
Power Clean and Strict Press 4x6x135
Barbell Deadlift 5x3x365
Hang Clean Pull 4x5x275
Farmer Deadlifts 3x8x270
Pendlay Row 4x6x135
Felt like a decent workout, but weights are still suffering a little from that bug I had. First time trying Pendlay rows today and liked it. Need to master the form before going up too much in weight though. Also haven't done barbell overhead press in years which was nice. I'll be sticking with that for a while instead of the log press.

Thanks man. Yeah, I like the stuff that taxes everything; it's just so much more fun too.
