I’ve meant to start this thread for a while, and with many of us on a semi-hiatus from training, I reckon a bit of reflection is in order.
The idea is simple - post about a couple-few exercise accomplishments you’ve had that you’re especially pleased with, proud of, or downright enjoyed. I’ll start.
cleaning and push pressing a 100-pound dumbbell with each arm (consecutive, not simultaneous.) One of my crew at a gym I worked at had this as his goal, so I figured, why not?
slooooowly jogging 5K without walking. My lower right leg and foot were crushed by a 600-pound boulder while hiking, and I nearly lost my leg. I couldn’t run for 10 years. When I finally limp-jogged those 3.1 miles, I was elated.
The first time I deadlifted 315 pounds. After the leg injury, I never thought I’d deadlift, much less more than before.
deadlifting 375 last summer. Progress towards my lifetime goal of 405.
