Back today.

Depending on how I'm feeling, I may try to 1 rep up my whole olympic set (300 lbs) on the deadlift.

It will determine if I need to buy more weight soon. Mwahahahaha

(May end up in hospital)

Pulled it up twice with no worries. Time to buy more plates. Hammies are feeling good today....

Goal is 2.5x my bodyweight. So assuming I get back down to 160 soon, that would be 400 even.

Chest and Shoulders today. The best.

Nice dude, I'm working to pull 300 by the end of the year.

My work out today consisted of chopping 1/2 cord of fire wood. I will do the same thing once a week for the next 6 weeks. Not sure how that will relate to my golf swing, but I don't think it will cause too much harm. The beer afterwards is the best part. :beer:

Is that dangerous for the back with that much weight, going so heavy with few reps?

Not as long as the form is good. I was just testing my 1 rep max, not something I would do every week...but there's nothing wrong with it as long as you have a lot of experience with the specific exercise.

Nice.  Get a video of the 400 lb pull.

Due to a recent bout of injuries from being so out of shape, I think I'll start doing pull-ups and push-ups. I have a Yaniro board from my rock climbing days, and some metolius rings to do some pull-ups. I doubt I'll ever do front levers again, but at least I need to get in some semblance of shape. No more cerveza workouts any more. :-X

Rolled my shoulder with a tennis ball. The muscle right in the armpit felt extremely painful from overworking it. The rolling made it feel good enough to make some swings. Switched to using my old Burner 1.0 irons so it does not put as much stress on this muscle.

Planning on doing pullups once possible without pain.

Worked on my deadlift form today. I tend to have my hips too high at the start and the back can get rounded. So focused on the following cues.

- Start with my shins about 1 inch away from the bar

- Drop my knees forward and out until the shins touch the bar. This gets my tailbone down.

- Pack my lats. This gets my chest up, back flattish.

- Then push the ground away from me keeping the bar in contact with my legs.

Anyone else feel or work on pieces like this? It feels like more of the weight is towards my heels and like I'm "falling back". Definitely felt it more in my glutes.

5x5 145 lbs

5x5 Sumo 145

5x3 205

3 pull ups or chin ups between each set.

I've fortunately never had a problem with deadlift form. Squats on the other hand...

Yes, I have been working on this too.  I can tell by how sore my back is the next day if I rounded my back during the lifts.  Yes, feeling the glutes tighten is my indicator that I have good form.

Just like golf, we all have our own priorities. Never had to worry much with squat form, sometime right right knee likes to cave in as I'm coming up but always been good with starting my squat with my hips.

Thanks. Did some more form work this morning and it felt pretty good. The cues to pack my lats and feeling the bar ride up my shins seems to really help.

    • Well, what I’m referring to are the gaps in yardage. I’m suggesting it’s just as difficult to hit a longer iron than needed to the right distance as it is to hit the appropriate iron and hope you make a good strike. 🤷‍♂️
    • Meaningless. Pretty easy to add that up to get 100% and understand what that is.  Again, meaningless. What percent of the White race has been vaccinated?, What percent of the African Americans have been vaccinated?  etc.
    • Before we begin, let me be clear: this is not the case here: You own a business with another partner. You keep your money in a bank account, and split everything 50/50. Income, expenses… all 50/50. When the business receives a payment, it goes into the bank account and half of the money is yours. When the business "pays yourselves," you both take equal sized withdrawals. So if someone pays the business $1k, you eventually both get $500. When the business buys some physical goods, or purchases services, the payment comes out of the bank account and you thus each effectively pay half. Here's the question: There is a service for which a person I'll call "Contractor" charges $10/hour. You decide to do this service yourself so you don't have to pay the Contractor. How much do you pay yourself? In other words, if your shared business account has $10,000 in it, and you do 100 hours of work (which would pay the same $10/hour), how much do you pay yourself, considering that half of what you are paying out was "yours" to begin with already? P.S. It's a bit of a twisty one, but we know the answer. It's just a bit "fun" to think about.
    • I'd say hitting a 4i consistently both 200 yards and 185 yards is harder than hitting a 4i 200 yards and 5i 185 consistently!
    • Hi Paul, I've just bought a stand bag that holds 7-9 clubs, so I'm thinking odd then even number clubs on different days. I don't care what I shoot just want to walk 18 holes at least once a week, I have a electric scooter for the following day if needed lol...   Cheers Colin
