I was so damn hungry when I was done I just started shoveling food in my face cause I had no yams/sweet potatoes made. I ended up eating oats and now I have heart burn. I really don't like eating grains, especially wheat.

Rest today. Went and picked up the rental car today, did some grocery shopping, and got some goodies for the home gym. 50lbs more of iron and an Olympic EZ curl bar rated to 310lbs. Woohoo!

8-17-13 1hr 5 min
EZ Deadlifts 201x4 183.5x7 163.5x10 > DB 203.5/ EZ 186/166
Chinups 98x3/72.5x6/57.5x10/35x14 > H/H/60/37.5
EZ Rows 151x7 136x10 > +166/151/136
EZ Curls 106x7 96x10 76x15 > H/H/81
EZ Shrugs 211x15x15 > X

Well I found a problem. My EZ bar can only fit a maximum of 211lbs with the combination of weight I have. For now I'll combine EZ/DB on deads (which is the whole reason I bought it and the two new 25s) but eventually I want to get 2x35s or 2x45s. It's too much of a pain to combo EZ and DB for the same exercise but I may do it on shrugs and calf raises.

Still, the forearm pump I got from the EZ is so gnarly. I am concerned with the thickness of the steel walls on EZ so I won't be using my screw-down collar clamps on it.

Must say I have never tried doing deadlifts with an EZ bar, sounds interesting !!

Keep up the good work. Just reading about the hotel and rental car, are you away from home at the moment? Hope you have had a good weekend bud MF.

It's very comfortable if you ask me. I use a narrower grip. My grip is as wide as my stance so my hands drag on my shins and stays tight to my body.

I don't have room for a 7ft or even 5ft olympic bar, so this will have to do.

I was just in San Diego for a doctors appointment and to take mom to the beach, back home now and getting ready to move.

Take care too man.

I didn't run yesterday or today. I have all sorts of excuses but mostly it boils down to me being too busy/stressed moving and I'd rather focus my efforts on weight training.

Just swapped two of my 25#ers for two 45#ers (Budget means I couldn't keep the 25#ers ):) I wanted the 45#ers because like I said I could only fit a maximum of 211lbs on the EZ bar when it is rated for 315lbs. The whole reason I bought it was for EZ deads and hack squats. Going with taller 45#ers means I can fit more weight on the EZ bar and that the bar now sits higher off the floor than with the 25#ers (which is a bit awkward IMO) About 2-3 inches to be exact. I should be able to fit 251 to 261 on the EZ bar, have to wait to get the 45s in the mail.

My equipment list is now:

2x oly DB handles 28.5lbs
1x oly EZ bar 21lbs
2x oly 45lb plates
4x oly 25lb plates
4x oly 10lb plates
4x oly 5lb plates
4x oly 2.5lb plates
13lbs of chain
Weight plate vest
Doorjam pullup/chinup bar
Home made suspension straps for aforementioned chinup bar for dips
Two step stools
Straps and wrist supports
Few extra screw-down collars (Not suitable for EZ bar)
Various floor protection

Doesn't sound like a lot but I have gotten by just fine without the 45s and EZ bar and now I have those to add to my arsenal!
