New Hampshire Lifter II


CL, I love it all. Lifting the stones. Carrying the triangle thing. Jumping around. Hard to say which is my favorite. Now to get better at all of them. Hopefully by the end of the summer.


I did too.


That’s an awesome set up you have there. I wish I had that.


My neighbor caught on fire in my fire pit a few years ago. I told him using gasoline to start the fire was risky.

Crip, it would be great to have you and everyone over to lift the stones and flip the tires.

  2. Slingshot bench 405x7
  3. Inclines 135,225x10 275x5

Then I got outside to weed and weed whack. Now we’re grilling pork chops.

Worked up a sweat and now enjoying a diet Moxie. I think Moxie is a northern New England drink. My kids and wife hate it.


Had to look that Moxie drink up. Sounds like the Gentian Root they use in it’s good for lots of stomach issues among other stuff.


I’m pretty sure diet Moxie is NH code for Jack & Coke !


He puts diet coke in his whiskey. Sad but true.




Jim Beam and diet ginger ale last night after hill sprints.

Paul, you must have tried moxie. They have a Moxie festival every year in Maine.


I confess I have tried it…but I’m like the rest of your family!!! Have a good weekend!


Paul, its an acquired taste. I’m going to get one after I post this workout.


  1. Deadlift 135x5 185x5 225x5 275x3 315x3 365x3 405x1 455x1

  3. Trap bar shrug/ trap bar deadlift combo 325x3x10-15 (5-10 shrug+5 deads)
  4. Tire flips x 50 feet 2 trips with larger tire, 2 with smaller tire

Feelin’ good. Kept the belt on the shelf because nothing felt too heavy.

1b. Band pull aparts
2. 1 arm clean and press 75x5x3 each side
3. 3 sets curls and pushdowns

I either need to start taking more days off or having a light workout after a hard one. I think I was still tired from Saturday’s workout.
Bench was moving slow so dropped back down after the first set with 315.

    Sldl 135x2x10 225x3 315x5x3

I need to do more stone carries.

    Got outside
  3. A bunch of stone lifts x singles

I did the block pulls with my oldest. So it was a good workout.



  1. Bench+micro mini bands barx20 95x5 135x5 185x5 225x5 275x3 315x1 / Slingshot bench 365x3 405x3 / bench 225x10
  2. Several sets of biceps curls

I think the bands add around 30 lbs at the top of the bench. I threw the slingshot on for a couple sets.


Prowler push/pull
Hill sprints

Pulled the prowler out. It’s been collecting too much dust.


Nice. 405 x 3 is very adequate.
