Up here in NH we don’t have any of those scary poisonous creatures. 6 months of winter kills all those things. Glad you’re starting to feel better.


#773

Thank you! We have enough venomous things here for everybody :rofl:

The Egyptian desert, about 40km outside of Cairo, early 1993. We’re establishing a staging area for deployment to Somalia. My squad gets the bright idea to set up our Temper Tent in a bombed out MIG hanger from the 6 day war. Out of the wind, sun, blowing sand. Transportation guys are moving our conex in and they bump the wall with a fork lift. The motar, stucko type facing crumbles and within 30 seconds the wall’s covered with very large pissed of black scorpions. We relocated post haste.


#775

Great nature stories here.


#776

Ewwww! That’s scary than my house! I bet it didn’t take long to get the hell out out of there! Yuck! Flamethrower might have come in handy. Just saying.

Chins
Rack pulls wut 235 just below the knees
Some other crap


#779

Looks like things aren’t all bad. Nice job.


#780

I figure if I can hit 215 feeling like shit, surely I can pull 225 when I get backnin track!


#781

Started doing some neutral grip db bench and they seem to hit me more on the upper pecs. Rack pulls w/235 from just below the knees are adequate.


#782

Wow! I got an adequate! Thank you!

As far as the other… if what you are doing ain’t working, try something else! Right?


#783

I like doing explosive floor presses with DB’s, I definitely think you can get a quality muscle contraction with DB’s, the only draw back is safety and not being able to use as much weight as BB.


#784

Don’t get cocky.

About halfway thru I started feeling somewhat human!

@oldergoat what grip width on the inclines? Same as flat? Narrower? Wide?


#786

CL- Primarily I do use the same grip which is fairly narrow. My pinky is 1 finger width inside the ring. Occasionally I will narrow it up and do some close grip work , but that is usually to compensate for pec/bicep tendon stiffness./soreness…and congrats on the adequate from Harry…


#787

Okay thanks! Narrower seems to hurt less :rofl: Thanks again! Adequates for me are few and far between!

So, when I got home yesterday I ask Jed if he wanted to go with me to get some sand to fill up a ball. He said yes!
We get down there, get the sand and I am looking for a rock in a non snake infested area…lol

I find one and load it up! OMG! He had a total frickkng meltdown! Why this was such a big deal I have no idea. I heard about it for hours. Ugh!

Anyway I got the rock best I can tell iit is about 67lbs. No problem loading this. When I go to get a bigger one he os staying home! :rofl::rofl::rofl:
