About to Turn 40, Time to Improve My Dadbod


#121

I was thinking of taking a dremmell to them, that looks much better!


#122

A dremmell with a stone bit would work but may be a little quick or too abrasive. I have a mate who uses an angle grinder for nearly every job. Thank god he doesn’t have calluses!!

Legs this morning
Squats 90kg 6x4 then 95kg x 3 then 100kg x 2

Squatting felt much better but still got some rubbing on top of spine. Have to really concentrate on pulling shoulders together and lock bar with arms.
