340 and 370 felt really smooth. For whatever reason 335 was my hardest set. I needed some help on the last rep.

It was 100 degrees in the garage tonight. I flirted with the idea of going to the gym after work just for the AC. I decided not to be a wuss.

Can’t bet a/c, but it’s more animal like working out without it.

It was even hotter today. I turned the fan on this time.

I’m trying to zero in on a max effort day next week. I then want to back off and build toward November and the Worlds.

Sandbag Shoulder Carries: 1500 steps x 200

Sandbag Suitcase Carries: 100 steps x 200

I moved Weighted Walk Monday to Sandbag Sunday.

You’re getting too comfortable with the 200 bag. Maybe a sign to move up a little?

No. 200 is still a beast.

That’s all I had time for today. My daughter’s sorority sister is staying with us a couple of days. Plus people kept calling me.

Bench (one board): 3/275, 1/345, 1/435

I did board presses today. I was amped up on coffee and Bang. 435 was pretty strong. I am going to strip off a bunch of weight next week and build back up.

This is you on “drugs”?

Well as close as I come to using drugs.

Sandbag Shoulder Carries: 1600 steps x 200
Sandbag Suitcase Carries: 100 steps x 200

1600 steps with 200 pounds is a new personal best. The first two sets were 400 steps, which were also personal bests with 200 pounds. I keep the bag on the floor of my garage and place it on the tailgate of my truck. It is about 50 steps to the truck. Thus the 100 steps. I figure it all counts.

There was a huge downpour when I got home from work (not like they have in biker’s neck of the woods). I waited until after dinner. Therefore it was a new challenge with a full gut.

Usual great work with the sandbag carries. Doing them after dinner adds additional weight to them.

I like the truck idea. Trucks really come in handy here with our 6" rains in 6 hours.
