    Nice press work! I think the fact that you have to basically do a front squat with the weight is kind of funny too. Them extra core benefits of having a low ceiling
    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.

    Thanks my man! Seriously, great call on suggesting the split squats. No hernia irritation and it’s a perfect mountain climbing lift.
    Hope you’re staying safe out there

    Thanks dude! Once I got rolling it felt good to hit up a full hour.

    Just a small trek, sub 10 miles. Need to get in a few training ones before anything longer since I haven’t been since late June.

    Friday 9.4.2020- Mt Starr King & Mt Waumbek Hike

    7.2 mile round trip
    approx 2500' elevation gain
    4:38 total time (15 min rest on 2nd summit)
    carried full winter pack (heavy!)

    Decent trek! Pretty mild which was good considering it's been 2 months since my last outing. No crazy steep sections, just a steady uphill the whole way.
    Legs and back felt strong the entire time, limiting factor was cardio. Shows that the weight training is working but my slacking off on running / cardio hindered me. Need to get back to running 2x a week.
    both summits were in the clouds so no good pictures.

    That’s great you feel like you can crush 225!!!

    That’s a decent hike with a full pack. Have you thought about trail running? I’m thinking it might be better then just road running. You know the views and all are better.

    Thanks dude! Gonna be ripping 200+ soon

    I knew the forecast called for summit clouds so I picked peaks that were on my list but had wooded summits / restricted views so I wouldn’t miss anything.
    Next nice weather chance I get I’ll score you some open ridge above treeline shots

    Thanks dude! Anxious to get back to somewhat of my former stats. I’m not expecting to ever do my old squat / DL nimbers, but bench is moving nicely.

    I bought some trail runners and have used them around here when I run (half street, half on little walking paths). Someday I’ll try to on mountains but that incline would be brutal haha

    That’s why I’m interested in trail running. The brutality of incline and rocks makes it much more worth while.


    The double day. Good job that seated ohp is great going to really help that bench number.

    Maybe I’ll do a double today....

    You are doing the split squat version where you have a foot up on the bench, yes? That is some fairly solid work for a split squat. And the seated presses with the giant sets after it would leave a weaker man unable to use his arms

    Yessir, one foot on the bench. Thanks guy, those fukkers are brutal. Makes my butt cheeks sore for two days.

    That shoulder shocker giant set is such a killer even with super light weights. Always a worthy finisher after pressing.

    Sometimes shooting a gun is a better time especially if school for the kids is stressing you out. I know I’d choose it over lifting.

    Nice session none the less and getting the work done! Nice dB rows strong weight to have a pause at the bottom

    Okay now I have to try shooting one of those things. Bruises on hands? WTF LOL

    Reps for life on the consistency with split squats. Nobody has a damn clue how beneficial they are until they try them it seems.

    Yeah I am gonna need to try to shoot one of those as well . This is definitely a journal full of dudes lol.

    OP:"shooting this gun caused a contusion"

    Thread followers:"fuk yeah I need to fire a weapon that can damage me as I am firing it too!"


    Good job getting upper back work in anyway. Benching with a bruised up hand is a unique experience. I would not recommend it if you can avoid it
    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.

    Split squats are awesome! First did them years ago for pt then showed off at the gym when they programmed them. Everyone else sucked 😏


    Damn that’s a big load

    Tuesday 9.15.2020- Bench & Squat

    Forced myself up at 4am and smashed a double before work! Palm is still bruised but I was able to bench ok. Threw in split squats after, so I'm back on track for the week.

    Bench
    45 x 10
    45 x 10
    95 x 5
    135 x 3
    165 x 1
    180 x 5
    180 x 5
    180 x 5
    not as quick as the 175 last week but no issues. sore hand definitely stole some focus from the lift

    DB Bench
    62.5s x 8

    superset w/

    DB Flies
    17.5s x 15

    Split Squats
    45 x 5
    80 x 5
    80 x 5
    80 x 5
    straight punishment. going upstairs after was a nice burnout

    Calf raises
    185 x 20 >>drop set>> BW x 20
    185 x 20 >>drop set>> BW x 20

    Haha blasting is great when I get the chance! just gotta go easy on that 500 before pressing days.
    Love to dead hang the DB when doing the rows, such a killer stretch

    Reps for life on the consistency with split squats. Nobody has a damn clue how beneficial they are until they try them it seems.
    Haha the regular rounds aren't too bad but those bear loads are insane.
    Thanks fella, those splits are the sh!t! Legs are prime for some steep climbing

    OP:"shooting this gun caused a contusion"

    Thread followers:"fuk yeah I need to fire a weapon that can damage me as I am firing it too!"


    Good job getting upper back work in anyway. Benching with a bruised up hand is a unique experience. I would not recommend it if you can avoid it
    Thanks apeman!
    Haha definitely shoot one if you get the chance. Such a variety of ammo for it- some are pretty normal to shoot and some are straight up painful to fire.

    Hand is still bruised today but I benched ok. yesterday would have been tough

    Big double. Split squats and benchpress are a nice way to ensure there isnt an unsore muscle left And with the bruised hand! Think I will ask around my area and see if any of my buddies got one I put a few rounds through. Right now looking for something smaller than my wife's XDS. She wants something that is more easily concealed while also still being accurate to fire.
    I am looking to take over the XDS as my EDC. It is a comfortable, accurate pistol. The SW 500, on the other hand, does not look easily concealed or comfortable

    Thursday 9.17.2020- Back & Shoulders

    45 x 10
    65 x 5
    90 x 5

    Seated DB Lateral Raise 17.5s x 10

    the adjustable handles weight 2.5 empty hence the oddball weight callouts. (although I do have 1.25 plates for them kicking around)

    Thanks dude! DOMs weren't too bad yesterday. Usually the day after split squats is painful.

    Check out the walther CCP. sweet little 9 that's easily concealed. Shoots good, easy to handle.

    Nice shoulder work and hopefully this time the dumb clouds are not everywhere

    I can imagine the looks you get walking past someone wearing that monster. I feel you on the day after split squats being painful. That is an exercise that hits you out of nowhere. Brb only used 55 pounds for easy sets, next day walking around like beat with a stick..... a very large stick

    Saturday 9.19.2020: Mt Garfield Climb
    4500' Elevation
    10.0 miles
    4:58 total time, 4:28 moving time



    The mountain gods bestowed a favorable forecast for Saturday, so I hit the trails for a climb. Views did not disappoint, clear skies went on forever.

    Couldn't be more pleased with my performance. 2:14 to summit, 30 on top then 2:14 back down. (the descent would have been quicker but there were a ton of people headed up at that point, so stopping to let people pass in narrow spots, plus chatting took some time)

    It was a chilly start just after 6AM, but I warmed up fairly quickly once I got moving. Despite being 5 miles one way with 3000+ elevation gain, it was a pretty easy trail. Footing was decent, although the last 1/3 got a tad rocky. The final .2 was a steep little scramble, but nothing crazy. Legs felt great the whole way. I carried my boots in my pack and started in my trail runners. I ended up wearing them the entire trek. They have great traction: very grippy on the rocks, and much lighter and more nimble than boots. I jogged a bit for the first 2 miles before the terrain got rougher.

    Legs were tired yesterday, but not crazy sore like they used to get after a long outing.
