Got my croc worked on today. Its a cool Indian glarial tattoo. It has taken me a long time to feel like I wanted to add color, its just so cool as an outline! I have high hope for it. Not ready for pictures yet but I think its going to be my favorite.

Those front squat numbers look strong, I wouldn't be surprised if you aren't setting some big PR's soon

:D!!!!! Thanks SCOTTO!

I have kinda come full circle on my lifting thoughts. I am not very hungry for PR's here the last few months- though of course would not mind!- but aiming for longevity. I seriously feel grateful to acquire the hard lesson being an injured fool gave me. Live to lift another day no matter what weight it is!

A broomstick? GREAT! A loaded bar, freaking fantastic!! Its so much better then nothing by hundreds and hundreds of percentages!!! Lifting is an achievement in and of itself, no good better best, its all always fabulous!!

My injury scared me enough that I don't even really doubt that this feeling of grateful triumph will ever need reminding of. I am lucky! Its come to that. I hope everyone has a bit of this feeling. The fact that we lift is THAT cool. It totally is.

how are you coming with the "derrick"? is it a worthwhile piece of equipment or an expensive tony little "gazelle"?

Hey Silverbood! I used it again on saturday and it was cool--supersetted it with some back extensions and regular ghrs. I say its a bit..well I dunno. I'd rather they got another ghr but no one uses the ghr as it is so its fine! Let the gym owner send some dough I guess! I'll use it again too, and try less and less wt! Not a waste of time though as a bw accessory--and I still could be doing it incorrectly.

Only complaint now is its loosing its padding on the ankles already so its SUPER tight fit, but hey, its ok. Not my money spent on it!
