  1. I honestly laugh that this is still a discussion and there are actually people still debating that it's Jack. This isn't LeBron vs. MJ, this is MJ vs. Bill Russell. The "Jack faced tougher competition" argument is laughable. No sporting competition ever gets easier. People get stronger, faster, tougher...etc., in sports decade after decade. And beaten down middle-aged Tiger just beat the best field of golfers we've ever seen. In history. If there was anyone teetering on the edge of this debate, there's a 0% chance they haven't cemented their opinion after this weekend.
  2. Dealing with a knee sprain since New Years Eve, but finally almost 100%. Back to a 5x5 type program for now until softball/golf season starts, then I'll lay off the super heavy lifting for a while.
  3. I know that feeling lol I have a little electric snowblower. And a 3 car wide, long driveway. Needless to say the snowblower wasn't having it haha
  4. Glad to see this thread back on track! Diet has been off the rails, but still hitting the gym regularly. Push day yesterday, off today, pull day tomorrow. No legs for a couple weeks...tweaked my knee playing basketball...hopefully nothing too serious.
  5. Crushed the goal this week. Upped bench to 260, and deadlift to 410. So 410, 330, 260. Hit 1K exactly!
  6. Hit 400 on deadlift. So updated maxes are: Bench: 250 Squat: 330 Deadlift: 400 Putting me only 20 lbs away!
  7. 30s in Cleveland and dark by 4:30. Bah Humbug...
  8. Lazy back day today just to hit the gym. New goal is to hit the 1,000 lb club by the end of the year. Current maxes are 250 on bench, 330 on squat, and 365 on deadlift, but I think I can improve all of them in 2 months.
  9. Golfed Saturday and Sunday. 90 on Saturday with a garbage front 9 (48). Sunk some solid putts and struck some good shots for a 42 on the back. Sunday...I don't wanna talk about it 😂😂
  10. Push day yesterday. 3 sets flat bench, 3 sets leverage incline press, 3 sets leverage decline press, 3 sets machine shoulder press, 3 sets front dumbbell raises, 3 sets dumbbell flyes, 3 sets tricep rope pulldowns. Lot of volume. Bench is starting to get stagnant...need to eat more lol
  11. Sounds like a good day! I always say I'm gonna go to bed early. Then 2 AM rolls around, I call myself an idiot...and then roll into bed. Lather rinse repeat lol
  12. Nice. I'm normally in for an hour or so as well. I almost never hit arms...just maybe an additional exercise on chest and back day, but my genetics blessed me with arms that grow faster than everything else (not always a good thing)...so I don't need to lol. I did have to start hitting shoulders twice a week tho for a while to try to get them to catch up.
  13. I've never seen someone devote an entire day to biceps before lol How long do you normally spend in the gym?
  14. Not bad! You might pass me up soon lol After a long lifting hiatus, I'm back. But no strength gains, because I had too much fat to lose. Did get 225 up for a relatively easy rep today. But probably wouldn't have gotten a 2nd one up haha
  15. Those numbers look awesome! Great progress over the past couple/few years. Are those 1RM numbers or for reps?
  16. Never stopped, just played through the pain lol It's sort of a lifetime injury deal. It is what it is...right now I'm feeling pretty good.
  17. 42. Pretty average for me this year. Could have been better, missed 3 par putts on 1, 2, and 3.
  18. Just read through a lot more of this... IMO, Jack's majors are equivalent to Bill Russel's 11 rings. Never going to be surpassed, because it gets harder and harder to win as time goes on. Bill Russell didn't have to beat anyone. Jordan's 6 rings are far more impressive than Bill's 11. To say Jack would have won more during Tiger's era is hilarious.
  19. I'd love to. Unfortunately, every weekend in August is out for me. I'll still be following this closely...just in case.
  20. Yeah, that's really inconsiderate. I try to be considerate about everything I do on the course. I like my cigars, but if I'm with someone who's not a fan, I'll keep them in the bag for the round. Should be the same for music or any other non-golf related "activity" on the course.
  21. I'm sure it was mentioned already, but technically it's against the rules to play music during a round. My buddy does it in his Thursday league when I join. I'm not really a huge fan of music while I play, but it doesn't distract me or hamper my game in any way, so I let it go. It's never a serious round anyway, and he's nice enough to invite me to his league...so I'm cool with it. He's also one of the courteous ones that turns it pretty much all the way down when we're within 30 yards of another group.
  22. Friday I'm playing with a couple neighbors... We get to a 340 yard Par 4. I push my drive right into the trees. Find my ball in the rough, and I have enough of an opening to hit a normal shot from 90 yards out. Grab my 56, but change my mind and go to the 52 instead. Hit a picture perfect shot that bounces once and lands in the cup for my first Eagle!
  23. Played 27 on Friday, but we had money on the last 18, so I'll count that lol Shot an 85 and only lost $5 to a couple of single digit handicappers, so I'll take it!
  24. My immediate thought was that Hue wanted him and the FO botched it on purpose. Dysfunction fo sho
