You should have told people Jason was available to drive people to the park, you would have had a better turnout! :)

That is a good plan Scott! Next time I will say that for sure :D

31 Aug 2014 - Sun
Bench and shoulder press day. Hips hurt so only did these. Didn't write down the amounts and now I don't remember.

Since then, it has been Lupus-pain September, which means more rest and long walks with dogs when I can. And sleep. I sleep so much when this stuff goes off.

13 Sept. 2014 - Saturday
Small Strongman Comp

Carry and Sled-Drag Medley: Carry 130 pound atlas stone 15 feet, Keg 30 feet, and 100 pound sled drag for 30 feet for time. Didn't get my time from the ref, but finished it pretty fast.

Dumbell and Stone Press Medley: 60, 70, 80 pound one-arm dumbell press and 42, 82 pound two-arm stone press for time. Did NOT finish, got all the stones, but couldn't get the 70 or 80 pound dumbells overhead with one arm!

Farmers and Tire Flip Medley: can't remember the farmer's weight, but it was with thick handles and not a bad weight. Ran with it for 30 feet and then flipped a 300 pound tire back 30 feet. Also went pretty fast.

Keg Toss: 3 attempts for distance. Never did this before and it was super fun!

14 Sept. 2014 - Sunday
Made a new axle bar to train with that was about 130 pounds, but it broke after a few rounds of deadlifts and attempts at cleans! Turns out I used some junky metal to attach the tires to the bar and it sort of shattered. Also did some bench pressing. Otherwise a pretty light day after yesterday's comp.

SLDL: 3 x 10 x 135 lbs

Overall, a good day :)

24 Sept 2014 - Wed

DL: warm ups, 10 x 135 lbs, 185 lbs, 8 x 225 lbs, 5 x 245 lbs, 1 x 265 lbs, 1 x 265 lbs

BB Bent Rows: 3 x 8 x 95 lbs - ugly, need to drop the weight and pause these.

One-arm DB Press: 5 x 35 lbs strict, 10 x 35 lbs push, couple x 45 lbs - so weak at these!

Last week ended with more pain. Haven't lifted in 6 days and was wearing all kinds of braces and things to my job just to get thru the days. But today is much better. Wearing my knee sleeves to deadlift though. Fatigue was kicking my butt as well, but if I feel good enough to lift then by god I am going to go lift come hell or high water. Nothing like being denied workouts to motivate me. :)

Thanks Scott :D

26 Sept 2014 -Fri

Bench: warm ups, 6 x 105 lbs, 6 x 115 lbs, 3 x 125 lbs, 3 x 125 lbs, 3 x 125 lbs :( , wanted more reps at that weight but such is life!

Dips: 10, 8, 8 x bw

Skull Crushers: 10 x 45 lbs, 10 x 50 lbs, 10 x 50 lbs

Fatigue sucks. It's like living in slow motion. EVERYTHING takes effort and I have to build myself up to do the most mundane things. Hopefully this passes soon. On the plus side, when it does go I feel so energetic in comparison! :)

Sqt: 10 x bar, 95 lbs, 135 lbs, 135 lbs, 135 lbs
DB Bench: 10 x 30s, 35s, 40s, 40s, 40s

Quick and light workout to get the blood flowing, but not so much as to leave my strength gains in the gym for this Saturday's compe :)

Yoga this morning. Probably shouldn't have done it really, lots of handstand type stuff and I was shaking from the effort! I do have a competition tomorrow!! Felt good otherwise though :)
