Nice. That would explain the 'gun show' tickets your always handing out...As said above, that is quite a collection of gear you have.

Thanks for the vid, keep them coming.

PS--Did front squats/thought of you yesterday. I log as B.S...Brute Squats.

AHWORD!! :D!!

thanks guys!
Z!!! :D!!!! I'm honored!! :D!!!!

:D!!!

Mr T showed up yesterday! The UPS guy yelled out that I'd need to help him take it up the three flights of stairs, he yelled clearly "You have to help me!" Help you? I just grabbed it and hauled it up myself, hence the point of having a t bar., so thrilled was I to carry it over the threshold. :D!!!

But he I guess had hurt his back or had surgery or something he told me...He was grateful and i was too! I got it super fast in the mail! Also I didn't realize it was 85# instead of the usual 45 or 55! SCORE!!!! :D!!!!
Total cost was $141, free shipping and fat too. I am MOST pleased!!

No lifting was done this week until today. Mondya I just didn't feel like it. MOss is on the mend!!! No more limping!! :D!! But I am going to rest him another five days just to be sure. Its really something how much that affected my whole mind frame, the lack of dog walk time I had.

Its my favorite thing to do ever, so far in my life honestly, walking by his side and just getting out and opening up my thoughts with a beloved Handsome Big Beautiful Dog to protect and enjoy it with me. Besides feeling pent pup, I really got dumpy and fairly aggro.

I did deadlifts today
deads 45x8, 135, 205, 265, 300, 320, 340
315x2, 295x2, 285x3, 280x3, 275x4, 270x4, 265x5, 250x5, 225 x 10

Here's Moss meeting Mr T.

:D!!!! Alright Eric!!! I'm glad the fronties left some parting gifts for your legs !! :D!!!

Today I took out Mr T. Inaugural walks went well and I for sure felt heart pumpin action. Not real sure how to log these, just like I don't really have a good way to log the other carries. I did do them for time today and it was interesting, then I did distance and timed myself for speed I guess? Anyways, here's the wt I used and a rough idea of what I did.

t bar carries
175# x not sure how far x misc things
175# x time and distance, total of 5 trips of 160 feet, times varied from 40 to 50 seconds to go the distance of 160 feet
Then whatever time and stuff to get everything bar to the car, so maybe another 320 feet or so??
Whatever! I like this f%ckin bar!!! Not a lot of wt but its going to be different and so far its badass. Spent about 40 minutes out doing it so I think that's pretty cool, and for sure heart pumpin' action.

Today
Walked to the gym since my car is being worked on, I don't know why I don't do this more? Its a ten minute walk! Its the sun really that I avoid but I put all my hats and cover ups and shit so it was a nice lil walk.

fs 45x6, 135, 165, 195, 205, 215, 225
belted 235 , fail at 245
185x6..felt off, 175 x no..just felt like my back was off , same old spot that has always been trouble, so I stopped.
back extensions
clean grip lunges 95x5/leg, x8/leg, x10/leg, x12/leg
zercher lunges 95x5/leg, x8/leg, x10/leg, x12/leg
a bit of a change and a bit of a butt pump.
back extensions again to help keep my injury dormant

pull ups
8 sets of 8, a set of 6

HERE! Some videos.
My lunges today, I share. As stupid as it sounds lunges get me confused. I see I should push that rear leg back more, and as well heels down. Whatever, here they are!

Now THAT'S what I've been waiting for...New videos! Camera works great; even a little Ghost Horse ect. showing. Looks great.

I do like Bulg.split SQs with a DB in one hand, holding on with the other.. push through the heel; never lockout at the top, for constant tension in the quad (my goal). It's unpleasant at best.

I could not handle the barbell like you do, as usual.
Happy Lifting!

Well now you have me thinking Eric, HMMM!!!! No lock out ?? That might be something to try! I feel a bit like a rocking horse doing them they way I did em last.

I do feel just off doing lunges. Lunges are how I started my weight lifting hobby actually. I had a curl bar and would just clean it up and do lunges every day with whatever wt I had, maybe it was 70 or 80 pounds? I don't even know anymore and at the time I didn't know enough to know the significance.. Tons of lunges like a psycho--everyday. Now they feel odd.

But they did make my butt sore today I'll tell you that!!! :D!!! Haven't had doms in a long time and I got em today!! :D!!! Also upper back which just puts a pin on it. More of those lunges for sure next week.

They for sure make it pretty obvious I have a weaker left leg as the reps are far harder there and I tend to crumble a bit with my core. I see it in my front squats too since that is the leg/knee that tends to pull in on the assent up. I don't know, it also is on my deads too that pullin left knee.... overhead squats, all of them I've noticed that left leg just isn't symmetrically strong or has the same movement . Means I should train it more I know, but its also the side my back is cranky on. Its also my lift off leg since I am a stance unrack-er. MMM.


Today I did carries with the handles. first time in two weeks and it showed.
112# / arm x total of 320 feet...more stops than I'd like
zercher carries 112# X 320 feet no stops, then two trips of 160
overhead carries 72# x 160 feet no stop- then lowered it to a clean grip walk x 160 feet.

Felt nice today! A bit of a change up.
