Thank you! I hit 225 last year about this time and haven’t seen it since. I was hoping to get back there and was totally thrilled to surpass it! Even if it was only by five pounds. :joy:

#1158

That is awesome with the rings.
WOW!!


#1159

Lol! Thanks! Probably the best $20 I have spent on this journey.


#1160

I kept flippin my phone round trying to work out which way up you were!
Impressive!


#1161

WOW!!! Check it OUT! That is impressive!!!


#1162

Those are fun to do.


#1163

Class chicken. What’s it feel like to be a vampire? lol

Wish I was that flexible


#1164

Freakin’ sweet, CL!!

I agree, rings are the least expensive, best piece of upper body equipment a person can buy. Add a box to raise the feet level with the hands, and rings totally revolutionize pushups. The twist motion they enable makes pull-ups a tendon-friendly, full-back-and-biceps exercise. Add a box to raise the feet a bit above the hands, and ring rows, aka fat-man pull-ups, become a legitimate rowing exercise.


#1165

Thanks for talking me into getting them!


#1166

Just happy to bench pain free!


#1167

That would be bat! As in batshit crazy :rofl:


#1168

Whoa there! Let’s not get crazy!
I can do the inverted rows though.

Absolutely starving, can’t concentrate on lifting because all can think about is eating…lol
Maybe try again later.

Things I have figured out this go around

  1. I need to do more twisty things
  2. Need more single leg work
  3. Still have no lats :weary:
  4. Need to work on posterior chain my ass is not holding up its end of the bargain

#1170

Single leg glute bridges and Bulgarian split squats may very well address items 2 and 4. That’s exactly where I’m at - doing the low weight, single leg stuff to get my glutes and posterior chain pulling (ha literally) their own weight again.


#1171

That’s what I was thinking. Yuk!


#1172

Right?! I was “inspired” by @JMaier31 who started doing the Bulgarians and keeps feeling better and better.
