Tell a person you are a strongman competitor, they want you to move them.

Buy a pickup truck, you also buy a a none profit moving company and find out you have friends you never knew you had. Lol

Yeah, one day of not posting my workouts turned into months. :lol:

Debating right now about joining either a Crossfit or a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gym. Liking the look of the BJJ gym as they also offer judo and strength and conditioning classes. Crossfit works perfectly with my schedule, though. Tough call.

Ha, I hear you! I'm still going at it 4-5 times/wk. Good runs and implementing some more free weights, bench press etc lately. Kids are so involved in sports now that it's early morning practices, after school practices, games twice a week, and now my oldest has gone and made a Rep team. More practices and more games After school, on top of the AT school.

Ok, so I do enjoy it all but it's a challenge getting my time in, but I'm doing it.

Good to see everyone is still plugging away!

Foam rolling and stretching SHOULD help you. If needed before the POPAT, Costco has Kirkland muscle relaxants for 6 bucks, compared to 30 for the brand name.

Looks like the squats and deads and climbing nicely 26.2


Today's event training
Log Press 4,6X200 Felt good, no real pain on the shoulder.
Farmers walk: 220X160feet, 270X80 feet (weight is per hand)
Stones: 3X270
Truck push Kia SportageX 80 feet (hit 10k an hour on this), Dodge Ram 1500 X80 feet.

Thanks, I got greedy with 10lb jumps for squats. I'm thinking I'll be looking at a reset next week, then jumping in 5s.

Btw, saw some dudes yesterday with plates under their heels doing squats -- I wanted to ask wtf .... but I didn't.

Changes the angle of the body because the lack mobility.

Edit: mobility in the ankles. I have oly shoes that do the same thing, but they give a solid base to squat in.
