Been to Bone Breaker Barbell a couple times since I last posted here.

I pulled 269 x 2 this past weekend (which was 7th set of the day)

I haven't posted this here yet but my wife and I split up 3 months ago. Motivation to workout is about 1/10th of what it used to be. I was undereating for a while (2500-3000 cals/day vs. usual 3500-3600) and lost some weight. I was down to 155 at my skinniest, now back up to 158. I am slowly building back my exercise habit. It's been tough. I have been 100% 80/10/10 for 129 days now. At day 150 I'm going to take a break, have some rice, maybe some gluten-free/soy-free vegan pizza, who knows. I really want to have some of those foods again. However, I have a feeling that after 5 months raw, my body is going to rebel. So I may be back on 100% raw again pretty quickly. It will be a fun experiment :)

Hey Ben,

cool video! sorry to hear about the split, but glad you're eating again! yeah..my body had a fit when we started eating cooked again. everything tastes so different once you've been raw. i didn't go back to raw fully, but have kept up with tons of fruits/veg in the diet and my energy levels are actually higher than they've ever been

Have fun with the ATX crew!

Toe is f'd up but I'm managing. Ain't nothin' but a little peanut!

Runnin' fool this week. Ran 4 miles Tuesday, HIIT run yesterday, then 3 miles today. Thrown some pull ups, dips and pushups in there too.

Bonebreaker is blowing up! I was promoting the hell out of it at Vegan Drinks last night. I think we may even get KATE to workout there some time soon.

What's up, dogg?

You're deadlifting 300+lbs now?

Wow! Awesome stuff!

Keep after it. See you when I get back.

Thanks for posting the Big Bald Mike interview as well. I've been sharing it around online and will get it on our main site soon.

Awesome. Yes, I deadlifted 3 plates on each side this past Sunday, 315!! My back is getting strong!

I'm applying to chiropractic schools right now. Wherever I go, probably LA, Dallas or Atlanta, I will make sure you get the hook up on some work on your back.

Awesome man!

Wow, I am really impressed with your strength!

I only got up to 321 at Bonebreaker on the deadlift before taking a break from lifting. 337 is my all-time best.

Say hi to everyone for me.

All the best with your school applications!

See you when I get back.
