Re: Ryan's "Hope to compete again in 2014" log

Been a while since I've updated anything! As per my other posting today, I took 2.5 months off of training post-injury and through the holidays, only to come back much weaker again. So, I'm almost 3 months back into things but progress is slow due to still having many long days at work and high stre...

Re: brian shaw ..1073 pounds!!!

Shaw is a monster. When he came to our gym this summer, he pulled 900 lbs. without much of a struggle. Considering you can probably count the number of 900+ lb. raw (no deadlift suit) on two hands and have fingers left over, he makes it look easy and bets are on that he'll likely be the first to do ...

Re: Taking a Time-Out

My first post in ages, and of course, it's because I can relate :) I dislocated a rib back in October, and just as I was about fully recovered 2 weeks later, I became so busy with holiday prep at work that I decided to take my longest lifting break ever - 10 full weeks of zero training. Even when I ...

Re: Ryan's "Hope to compete again in 2014" log

Been out of commission this past few days. On Wednesday I was working in the warehouse for a bit and out of nowhere, boom, it felt like someone stabbed me in the side. Pain has been nagging for the past 3 days now, no idea what brought it on as I was just walking back to a packing station (admittedl...

Re: Ryan's "Hope to compete again in 2014" log

Changed gears with my upper back work last night, did some circuit stuff with shorter breaks to have fun and switch things up a bit - First circuit was 5 pull-ups, walk over to steel log and do 5 rows with 220 lbs., then walk to the stone loading platform and put the 190 lb. stone on the 4' tall pla...

Re: Ryan's "Hope to compete again in 2014" log

Hey, Robert! Would have been nice if I'd been able to make it to Expo, too bad I had to pull out at the last minute :( Didn't get to train for a week again, got in for some leg/chest work last night to try and pick up where I left off - Squats to parallel - 1x5 @ empty bar 1x5 @ 135 lbs. 1x3 @ 225 1...
