    I usually do 5 x 5 with heavy weights but sometimes I drop the weights a bit and do more reps to get the advantages of that lower weight/higher reps effect. I did, although, want to give my body a good shock with a heavy deadlift in the end. Wednesday will be back to 5 x 5 with heavier weights for me.

      Thanks! We were really lucky with the weather this weekend - not being outside the whole time seemed out of the question. I would like to go back now, please!

        Yeah I'd like to pull off a planche too...


        ...but yet I can't hold a freakin' frog stand for more than two seconds. Need to work on that.
        Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

            I did do cleans, but only 3x3 135. I didn't bother listing it because it was pretty shitty.

            The unexpected was because I had stalled on the press at 115 lbs for many weeks, and today suddenly it went up to 125.

                        • Gini, you were in Maine!?!? Aww.. What area? Who do you go with?
                          Velocity, is it a balance issue on the frog stand? I'm sure your strength is there..
                          Noctural, that's not you in your avatar...Is it? ;-P 30 weighted pull-ups??? God damn....
                          Macphee, congrats on your PR :-)


                          Hmm.. I like the flatness of Florida. Makes for easy, fast biking. ;-) Plus you can see FOREVER! The sky always looks massive. I love it.

                          • Jess - Yeah! I go up there a lot. My mom has a bed & breakfast in the White Mountains. We were in: Evans Notch/North Conway/White Mountains area, Belgrade Lakes, and Baxter State Park. I was there for 10 days with my man. Last time I was there was Independence Weekend with a boatload of friends. Where were you in Maine?

                            Velocity - that looks like crow in yoga. I find that what really secured the stand for me was to pop my head out and look forward with my eyes. Fixed my balance, finally.
