Oh shit, can we be best buddies? I'll bring the booze and ban any 3 people you want!!! 🙏🙏
4 bans and you have to kidnap @nissan11 so we can compel him to compete in a real powerlifting federation and it’s a deal. When are you coming?

Went on a cool hike this evening with the fam. 3 miles roundtrip with a 500+ft change in elevation. Not difficult as heart rate stayed about 125. Views were awesome and there were some cool ancient hieroglyphs at the end of the trail. This is also near the area of the Lost Dutchman mine that has been, well, lost since it’s owner died in 1891. Supposed to have an 18 inch thick vein of gold running through it. People have been looking for it for over 100 years and it still remains hidden.

And as icing on the cake Soulfly just released a bad ass new song called Superstition which was written about the Superstition Mountains where we went hiking. Heard him on SiriusXM liquid metal talking about it. Cool shit

Bench continues to come back nicely. I’m back to about 90% of where I was before tweaking the shoulder.

pin press at chest level
365 x 1

reverse grip bench
315 x 2 - should have done one warm up set to get the groove for these. If the groove is not perfect it won’t go up
275 x 8 better
315 x 3
goal will be 315 x 3 x 5 in a couple weeks. Love how these hammer the tris. The elbows are pinned to the side of the body and you literally cannot flare the elbows.

chest supported barbell row
225 x 9, 8, 7

low incline Williams extensions
50 x 11, 10, 9

shoulder giant set
rear Delt raise, side laterals, front raise
20s x 10 reps each position for 2 sets

hammer curls
drop set
50,40,30,20 x 10 reps

jump in pool.
