Hit up the HS track it’s close and it’s really nice
Knee felt ok I’m sure I’ll be icing it soon.
This felt so good.
To do something vaguely athletic
Googled the tire brand and size
I think it weighs about 250
So much fun


busy week of work = no training

some training 6.23.18

mobility pvc lx ball at home
more stuffs st gym banded walks lunges banded lunge
been having awful pain in both arms/elbows
worked on that allot- starts at what feels like shoulder impingement

A squat 65x95 135 x10 185 225 245 275 295 315 35 all x5
B hammer strenf RDL machine 4x10
C pull thru x face pull 4x10
D medley of machines 5 x many
seated ham x machine row x tricep push down x machine laterals

stiff and not a great session
been leaning on ‘machines’ more and more
for pump and ‘accessory work’ as they are joint friendly

I have a work buddy who is at least my age and strong and pretty jacked - he has never ever done any bench squat dead and infact
just uses machines-
he does a big medley- of maybe 6-8 different machines
and just adds rounds or sets instead of going heavy.

maybe there is something too that…


With the evolution of machines over the years from the Universal when I was young I’d say it’s very possible to get big an swole just using machine. I think since Arthur Jones and Nautilus that’s been true.


I love my barbell stuff.
But really machines are joint friendly.


NBA draft kept me away from training for like a week.


Mobility lunges dislocates more lunges

Activation B.B. comes
Row x rsl x clean
65 2x5 95 2x5 135 2 x3
A dead 135 -275 2x5 315 4x5
B1 walking lunge 16 kg kb 4x20
B2 air hump 225 4x8
C1 vgrip low pulley row 4x12
C2 seated face pull 4x15
D hammer curls 35 3/10
E ab wheel 4 x10

Pulls shaky leg and no pat strength
No surprise as I haven’t been training
Air jumps need work - I used to do 225 x20
Face pulls cable rows - easy on the elbows
curks - needed stuffs


Hope everyone had a good Fourth of July.
Or a happy Canda day but that was the first.

We watched some fireworks little man lit up some sparklers and I roasted a big piece of lamb.

knee was banged up and stiff going in to this-
needed allot of work to feel ok .
OH squat felt good - 135 could have hit 5 - but shoulders where revolting
however they felt great after. that and the hanging leg raises at the top of the session - I need to do both movements every time I train.

squats - 315 - wanted 4x5 or 5x5 but on set 2 I knew I had some stuff not going well. RDL - felt ok sled was good bike was not good.
back of knee feels like shit a few hours later- iced and heat.
