I swear I feel like garbage for a week or two when it turns cold in the garage and I go from sweating like a maniac to barely sweating at all.
    Thanks Trent. The drop sets are definitely some of the toughest part of this workout. Yeah, IDK what is up with my devices. My fitbit won't accurately track when I vary my pace and my Under Armour shoes can't track a circle track. So I purchased a garmin watch. Loving the sauna man, and it sounds like your garage is set up to be close to one in the heat.

    I'm jealous of the sauna...I miss having regular access to those. Something about that intense dry heat feels so good after a workout.
    Thanks Greg. I am feeling good. Saunas are awesome. I am going to link a podcast at the bottom of this reply to a Rogan and Patrick convo about it.

    Thanks CPW. I just started "running" 3 months ago. I am still very slow but running definitely keeps me more athletic than not doing it.

    Swapping this out for a standard Lat Pull next time.

    Had a lot happen yesterday. 1st I went to the chiropractor. A new chiropractor. I really like this practice. They took X Rays, had me stand on 2 scales at once, a foot on each to see my bodies balance and how I carry weight. I carry 10 extra pounds on my right leg. Makes since with old motorcycle injuries to my left leg. I also have a hip misalignment that is causing a little nerve issue. My kneecaps were off center but left knee cap was way off to the side of my knee hence the reason it was killing my knee to squat.

    Lots to fix and I go back on Tuesday to go over all the findings and come up with an action plan.

    She told me my workouts on my legs I should be focusing on my inner quads as my outer quads are overpowering and causing them to pull my knee caps to the outside off my knee. Makes sense when I think about how I squat.

    Going to add in some sumo deads and lateral lunges in somewhere a long with plenty of leg extensions.

    I will probably shelf squats for awhile until I get this imbalance fixed, though after she reset my knee cap I really want to squat because my knees feel awesome today.

    We will see if I can stay patient.

    I also picked up a bike to ride. More cardio stuff and this one should be really fun.

    Damn man lots of stuff happening in here. That's awesome about the findings at the chiropractor Shane. I always love something like that...when you find out reasons for the various pains you've been feeling, and can actually come up with a plan to fix it. It sounds like she found lots of things to help you with so that's great.

    I'm interested to follow along and see how the sumos work for you. I'm actually incorporating them now too with my new workout. At one point they were the only kind of Deads that I did...my back and hips seemed to really like them.

    Congrats on the new bike too. I saw the pic on IG and it looks like a sweet ride.

    Also, I enjoyed that video on YouTube you posted. I've got to find a way to get regular access to a sauna.
    If in doubt, squat and run hills. So you walk into the gym and don't know what to do? Then squat and run hills. Have a miserable day at work and want to break someone's neck but aren't sure who's? Then squat and run hills. - Wendler

    Thanks Greg. We will see how it all works out. Hopefully I can get some relief. I am really thinking about doing some Yoga as well to get me more flexible as my flexibility is garbage.

    Sumos will be kept light. I remember doing them back when Chris had me doing them and I remember not liking them but also remembering that they hit in a lot different way than the standard dead lift does.

    Bike is sweet. Feels really funny to be riding again though.

    Fwiw Shane, when I did it consistently yoga made a huge difference for me. I've never felt as healthy and loose as I did then. The problem for me is making the time to do it on a regular basis. I really need to do that now, to help with my hips and shoulders. I'll be curious to see what it does for you.

    Thanks Greg. I think you nailed it. Finding time to do it on a regular basis is the toughest part. Anyway, I found a guy on youtube who has 15 minute routines. I will probably give it a go 3 times a week at night before bed next week.

    Great looking workout there Shane. Way to go testing the waters with Sumo. They sure do hit the hammies...mine were sore all day.

    You look great in that pic man...super cut. Makes me wish I had a 6 pack like that instead of this keg.

    Thanks Greg. Getting a six pack and doing deadlift competitions are typically not thought of as going in the same direction. You will need your strength and foods to do well there. Once you decide to dial in your diet your keg will disappear easily I am sure.

    10 Miles on the EcoBIke at 28:30


    Sunday
    Morning 5K

    First 1.3 Miles at 9:35 Pace I had a stomach cramp. Walked it off for a lap and then went back to it.
    2 miles at 9:57 pace. Still dealing with some cramping but got it done.

    Ecobike 5 miles.

    That was it for the weekend.

    Falcons looked like garbage. UGA looked solid. Braves picked up the series win in Arizona with a hell of a 9th inning. 2 out of 3 isn't bad.

    6 x 245
    6 x 245

    Grip was limiting here. Which is crap to say, but the use of straps has really hurt my grip and I threw away my versas because of the funk.

    Assisted Pull ups
    6 x 180
    6 x 150
    6 x 120
    7 x 120
    Drop Set

    Better form this week

    EZ Curls

    6 x 35
    6 x 35
    Drop EZ Curl bars
    8 x 50
    10 x 40

    Sauna 12 minutes.

    That is it. Last week before I head out to the beach on Saturday. Hoping to hit maybe 226 by Saturday. I will miss my mark by 10 pounds, but honestly I really am not that upset about it. I feel like the way I am eating now is much more sustainable and easy to lose and maintain with. So I will be good when I get back to drop those final pounds and maintain once I get there.

    Sorry for my slackness in here Shane. It looks like you are not letting your foot off the gas. Some good looking sessions lately and I'm really digging the combinations of movements. Way to go on those decline push-ups the other day! Went nice and heavy on the RDLs too. Looking ripped in your progress photo too. Heading down to the beach this weekend? Man, I hope there is some beach left to go to. Nah, you guys should be fine but this storm is going to wreck the Carolina coast. Shoot, we're leaving our house in Raleigh tomorrow and heading to the mountains. They are calling for almost category 1 winds here and I'm just hoping I don't come home to trees laying all over the house...

    Great looking workout Shane. Way to get in there and rebuild your grip on the RDLs. It should build up pretty quickly.

    Good outlook on the diet too man. I like the fact that you find it easy to lose and more sustainable. I've been eating pretty low carb for the last several months and I love the way my body responds to it as well. Every once in a while I slip and have a high carb day, but I feel so much better when I go low carb that it is easy to get back on track.
    If in doubt, squat and run hills. So you walk into the gym and don't know what to do? Then squat and run hills. Have a miserable day at work and want to break someone's neck but aren't sure who's? Then squat and run hills. - Wendler

    Thanks Greg. Low carb is such an easy way to diet. It almost feels like cheating.

    No legs today. Yesterday I stepped off a curb wrong and really did something funky to my knee again. Fawk does that sound like an old guy problem or what.

    Went to the chiro again today. Got a massage and he did cupping on my back to loosen up my muscles in my back. I have an adjustment and a plan going forward. Chiro said my knee cap shifted again and that was probably where a lot of the pain was coming from. I am not so sure but it does feel a little better right now.

    I've been seeing the vacation pics on IG. Looks gorgeous where you are. I've been in FL all week too, only on the east coast. I'm trying to fly home right now but my flights keep getting screwed so back to the airport bar I go... Enjoy the rest of your trip and look forward to seeing you get back to it after you're home.

    Thanks Trent. Vacation was great but they are never long enough. Good to see you made it relatively unscathed by the hurricane.

    Back from vacation. It was beautiful down there. We had a red tide scare the first day but by day 2 it moved out. Panama City, which is 15 miles from where we were, did not fair so well so we we lucky.

    First day back and only 7 pounds difference then when I left. I will take that as a win considering I went off lchf diet and went back to a standard american diet with lots of carbs. I weighed in at 249 when I got home on Saturday night after eating some Chikfila and finishing off donuts and other foods that wouldn't travel well. Crazy how much weight my body can gain and shed in 24 hours.

    Awesome to see you back getting after it after your vacation. That is some big-time weight loss between Saturday night and today. It's amazing how those carbs can lead to so much water retention and weight gain.
    If in doubt, squat and run hills. So you walk into the gym and don't know what to do? Then squat and run hills. Have a miserable day at work and want to break someone's neck but aren't sure who's? Then squat and run hills. - Wendler

    Nice work on the weight loss.

    When I was leaning out a couple of months back I avoided weighing myself on many mondays it was crazy some of the fluctuations. The happy scale app smoothed the trend out though.

    What were your stats in your avi picture? How was that diet campaign and how long did it take?
