All Out Attack


#1722

I heard our smoke from the Northwest is on it’s way to New York. I blame several factors. One is the lack of logging, which thinned the forest. When I was a kid you would see log trucks on the road all day long. We had two major saw mills in the area. Now there are no mills or logging. Therefore the forest is getting overgrown. The logging companies, back in the day, would replant what they cut, thus creating a new forest for years to come.

Just my theory anyway.

It’s been a while since I had a chance to do a strong man day. I normally mix in farmers’ walk, but not today. I have been doing them at night, so I laid off.

I stalled out about half way up at 405. No excuses, but I have lost 17 pounds, I am sure that has a little to do with it.

8/19/18

Rack Pulls:
330 x 5, 420 x 3, 470 x 2, 530 x 1, 405 x 11

Leg Curls:
4 sets x 10 reps x 125

I slept like crap, so I was slightly pleased with the way things went. I am taking the zerchers off the rack at belt level. I’m pretty sure 345 was the most I have ever attempted, but I’m not sure.


#1726

admiring that 345 zercher!!! well done youngman


#1727

405 x 11 ain’t bad either.


#1728

I was just happy with the 8 handstand push-ups. I’m not up to your level with 10 yet.


#1729

You certainly have the strength to be doing multi sets of 10 handstand pushups, just stay with it.

I know you deadlift much heavier than 405. I couldn’t move a 365 rack pull more than 1 inch this morning.

I think handstand pushups make great evening exercises especially for someone in your age group.

It was pretty packed today for 0500. I was force to venture off my normal routine. I think (I’m not sure) 9 might be the most I have ever handstand-pushed.

I started my job #2 last night at the university. The new semester started, and I have a full class of students. The first couple of weeks is always a feeling out for both sides. It’s a lot fun, however.


#1734

Handstand pushups in your shoulder workout will really help OHP, not to mention the feeling they produce.
