dead lift 3x record

On Monday I had a workout and I broke my Dead lift 3x record by a lot.  With a thorn in my foot!  Over the weekend I stepped on something in the back yard and I have been dealing with this thorn for a couple of painful days.  It was just behind the ball of…

my new challenge. olympic lifting.

and why I suck at it. Lately my trainer and I have been working on lifting at studio 831.  This has been very difficult for me due to injuries that I sustained in an accident in the fall of 2007. Anyhow, I started cross fit training in part to address the injuries I sustained in…

Crosstraining today? man-eaters suck.

The prowler revisited.

Today I had more of a classical cross fit training session.  I am really starting to get over these injuries that have been plaguing me over the past couple of months… hell, it’s been since December 2011 when I pulled a muscle in my lower back.  It still bothers me, but some recent dead lifts…
