Long time reader, first time poster who just moved to springfield, Illinois.
I am 37 and have read you for a long time.
I, since november, have been lifting in my garage. Got a 24kg kettlebell and really enjoy your articles.
I have just started your OLAD with a little twist:
Day 1: Push Press, (L-sit for time at the end)
Day 2: Deadlifts (maybe some ab wheel, maybe not)
Day 3: Dunno yet, maybe off
Day 4: OH Squats, maybe janda situps
Day 5: Some cleans and snatches, then some garage strongman stuff like sled drags and pulls, waiter walks and farmers walks and as many pushups with my 45# vest and some improvised stone carries (my oly dumbbell loaded to as much as possible -160#so far and carry it like an atlas stone) goal: be done in under 45 minutes.
I have ordered a sportkilt and have sent some e-mails and am going to try my hands at a highland games in the spring or summer. I used to wrestle in college, but haven't done anything since.
Today was good but tough, I finished 7 sets of 5 in 15:56 and did 135, 145, 155, 165, 175, 165, 175. Then I did 2 l-sits, 1 for 30 sec and the other for 20.
Bwt was 220.
I just wanted to let you know how inspiring you are. It's amazing how giving yourself a goal can motivate you.
Now my question: How did the Murray Institute of Lifelong Fitness get it's name and could we ever see some pictures?
