Pulled the metal shoes off a horse today. Took about 45 minutes, including being in the squat position for extended periods, hammering and prying. Not to mention picking up the hooves of a 1000+ lb. animal. This horse came back to me from someone I gave him too. We don't use metal shoes and I needed to get them off before putting back in with the other horses. The metal shoes are comparable to the CW shoes vs. five figures. We practice natural hoof care which mimics the horse’s hoof as it is in the wild.
Good workout yesterday. Warmed up with 5x5 squats with a low weight again 155 instead of 135 like earlier in the week.. Nailed the press and dead lifts today did 3 reps on the last set of presses and 5 for the dead lift. I may have been too conservative when transitioning from trap bar to Olympic bar dead lift. I'll add 20 pounds instead of 10 for the next cycle.
5/3/1 programmed main exercises (3/3/3 week):
• Overhead press 5x100# 3x115# 3x125#
• Dead lift 5x230# 3x260# 5x290#
Where did you get the rack from bro? Been searching around for a decent one.
Strength Training > Bodybuilding
$100 off of Craigslist. It has served me well but it is far from a decent one. You can see how much it shakes just from the wrist rollups in the video. I have dropped 300+lbs on it a few times and it worked fine. I am kind of in the market too. I guess you didn't go with that half-rack from Dicks? This forum Workout Equipment - Bodybuilding.com Forums has great reviews of all different kind of stuff. I am looking at this rack right now HD Titan Power Rack w/ 2"x3" Tubes
5x5 wall-facing squats w/ 20lb kettlebell to counterweight
3x15 leg lifts? (laid on floor, held onto husband's ankles at my shoulders, kept my legs straight and he would "throw" my feet towards the ground in different directions, I had to keep my legs straight & feet off the floor)
I shoveled yesterday (after a workout, which was probably stupid). I tried to watch out for my back, but it was half ice and half slush, so very heavy. My back is all sore today in a way I have not yet experienced while being this active. I think it will be fine by tomorrow, though.
Should I skip Crossfit tonight? It's backsquats and deadlifts (last week of the Russian Strength program, I am loathe to miss it). We're expecting 2' of snow tomorrow =\
