3 Mile Malibu Walks in the 70 degree weather! Much more fun for my girl since I am far more agreeable to Stop and Smells on our business walks when its not a so blazing hot. And Malibu is a BIG Stop and Smeller, kick the dirt kinda girl.

You’re just going to have to believe me on the 245! I didn’t film it but here it is on the platform!!! EYEAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

The 220 took a long time to get up because I inadvertently grabbed an old tacky towel that was basically dead and I had been meaning to toss. Once I found the right tacky towel that has some stick to it still I was able to load 220. After the 220 , 245 went up like fast! :D!!! I gave myself limit of 15 mins to do stones today and no joke the 245 went up on minute 14 and a half!

You’ll just have to believe that I didn’t get help getting it up there. I didn’t measure the height of the platform and I don’t really care. I’d say it was boob height. I’LL TAKE IT!!! EYEAHHHHHHHH!!!

Here’s some of the ssb fs.


Yeeeee Haweee! How friggin awesome is that 245! Congratulations!


Thank you!!! :smile:

3 Mile Malibu Walk - perfect outside!

I do like the arm over arm! As with all things strongman, I am slow and not at all explosive , however I really like this change of pace. I’ve been looking up stuff online and trying new things hear and there.

I will try the for time carries again and see how the ones I did today make me feel tomorrow- if they are worth it or not. I don’t think I’ll be sore or drained, I think they were more of a practice of being patient. Just like the f&cking stepmill. Not gasping for bretah or in agony hard, but unconformable enough to make you feel like you did something.

I got a furminator brush for Malibu and WOW does that thing work! She is my first personal dog with an undercoat so I have to learn how to take care of her hairdos.

She’s gotta have some kinda some sorta sheprardy mix in her because she is multi coated for sure. She got her first bath today with me and she did great! Post bath zoomies included with the Rub-A-Dub squeaky Clean Malibu Girl ;)!!!

3 Mile Malibu Walk

Kinda lost my thunder when my mp3 player suddenly died after one 220 stone load. It was eerily quiet in the turbo gym -since everyone else had their headphones on – which made the pretty awkward grunts and moaning from a guy doing something that required those kinda sounds to come out of a person to just totally make me embarrassed for any and all involved.

Then a guy came in and put Radiohead on the big stereo! Uhh??? I have NO idea what his frame of mind was to lift to Karma Police. GOD! I bounced!

I am pleased with the 191/hand farmer’s carries. Its been a while, I was slow of course but I got it from point A to B without a major ordeal.


My Weekend So Far :slight_smile: mmmHMMM!

Besides the guy downstairs who is someone’s douche bag boyfriend who slams the doors, screams at whoever it is he’s screaming at, and peels out of the parking spaces whenever he leaves. He’s “so f&ckin mad” at something all the time.

I however come home to this!

I DO have this to escape to with my girl. I keep saying it, its the truth! She makes me very very very content. HECK YEAH.


Looks beautiful where you are!
