Not a whole lot of juice in the legs tonight. I am still feeling yesterday’s deadlifts.

On the bright side my mentor, Les, is coming to do walks with me next week. He’s a former co-worker, who is now retired. He’s been powerlifting since the mid 80s. He convinced me to go to my first show 10 years ago. This will be our second annual Weighted Walk Monday at my house. We did it last year too. Les is 70 and super strong.

We want video!

700 steps @ 200 lbs day after deadlifts. Tell Les I’ll be praying for him.

Maybe he’ll motivate me to resume sandbag work.

Ha. Thanks guys. We’ll take some pictures for sure. Les and I were texting last night. He’s pretty fired up. He said he can’t lift the sandbags, so he’s bringing his own gear.

Ask Les about his workout frequency and what he thinks of consecutive full body workouts.
My friends at that age don’t lift anymore.

I will. I know he also teaches martial arts as well.

I paid my entry fee and made hotel reservations for the meet in November. The wife and I are heading out of town to Las Vegas next week for our 26th Anniversary. It’ll be time to zero in when we get back.

Saving yourself with a 605 rack pull.

Well normally I throw in some zerchers, and more reps. I have to put off walk day for one day anyway. Les and I both have issues. Tuesday night it is.
