Time to get SWOL!

PS I realized I've been saying SWOL since 2001 when I learned the word living in AZ. I just read an old blog post from 2004 mentioning it too.....now get going and get SWOL! :)

PS you'll be happy to know I'm doing Power Cleans, Clean and Press and heavy compound lifts these days :)

Box Squats: 10 x bar, 10 x 135 lbs, 8 x 155 lbs, 6 x 165 lbs, 6 x 165 lbs, 4 x 175 lbs

And that was it! Ran out of time because a bunch of us activists get together on Wednesdays to write letters to some kids in jail on aledged mink-release charges and vegan801power heads the whole show up - can't be late! :D Was for the best, those squats were tough!

Sunday, 10 Jan 2010

DL: 10 x 135 lbs, 10 x 185 lbs, 4 x 225 lbs, 5 x 225 lbs, 2 x 245 lbs, 1 x 255 lbs

30 minutes cardio on eliptical

By myself today, did some back last Thursday, I don't remember the details, but it was back minus deadlifts because I had squatted the day before.

Monday, 11 Jan 2010

Incline Bench: 10 x bar, 10 x 75 lbs, 8 x 95 lbs, 7 x 95 lbs, 2 x 105 lbs, 3 x 105 lbs

Bench: 8 x 95 lbs, 10 x 95 lbs, 8 x 95 lbs

Push-Up Contest: to 14, super hard after benching!

Sit-Ups: 50

Back at the gym, and its still so busy! :( All the benches were occupied so started on incline, which isn't my norm, was totally weird going to flat bench afterwards, they felt like declines!

Cool!

Glad you got the activist crew together too.

Tell that thug friend of yours I say hi as well. :)

Yeah, I think of you when I train with power movements and I'm really enjoying it!

How is the farm?

I got a card from Faith a while back. That was very sweet. Slim chance I'll be in SLC soon....not sure, but I may even be there this month to work at the Sundance Film Festival for Vega :) Just got word of it today, don't know what the likelihood is, but I figured I'd mention it's possibility :)

Have a great one!

Nice weight on the Push Presses!

Way to jump in and work extra shifts out at the farm!

How is everyone out there doing?

One of our mutual friends on FB just wrote to me asking about vegan bodybuilding stuff, so that was cool. A girl from SLC. So that was cool. Hopefully she'll join the forum.

Hey, we don't have you on our profiles section do we????? We should! You have great pics, great strength and that part of our main site gets tons of traffic so we can put your blog link there too with your profile feature, etc.

Have a great week!

Robert
