Ok. I like the idea of the single arm OH carry. I sometimes to do a plate. I may give that one a try.

Crippler if you want to make it interesting we sometime use exercise bands and tie a couple of light dumbbells on each end. The oscillation of the bands makes for an interesting feel in your shoulder.

Crip- we have also carried the trap bar overhead …not fun !

Sounds a little like when we used the Slosh pipe to do overhead carries. Never did them one handed though.

Harry it does have a bite of a slosh pipe feel to it just not quite as violent

I hate the mask thing but fun to be back in the gym…interesting to see how many kept up with some kind of workout and how many more did not…


I am planning on going to the gym next week. According to the rules they posted a mask is not required when exercising. I have kind of fell in love with my garage, but I miss the guys. I figure I’ll try it out. I don’t know if it will become a fulltime thing again.


Crippler-I’m thinking the same. Im not sure I’ll ever go back to strictly gym workouts…
