DOH the 305x3 easy. Man, its the same story every week. The first rep feels like a huge grind and I think that this set might not happen, but by rep 3 things are feeling easier and I know I have it. Wierd.

Stone Lifting

I moved to a new house on april 1st (last month). In the backyard is a rock garden complete with some sizeable rocks. I tried my hand at them today and found that 2 were within my ability to lift, while the biggest 2 only came a few inches of the ground. My guess is that it weighs, considering the smallest was a surprising 150#, at least two hundred thirty pounds. Today I lapped and stood up with the second biggest I could do twice (probably around 200 pounds), walked around with the smallest (150# scale weigt), tried and failed to shoulder it (technique issue). Tried and failed with the condora stone multiple times, failed with the second smallest I'm dubbing "Condora Junior", and generally made a mess of my yard. Every joint in my body felt pretty good after the stones, except my wrist which felt a little damaged. Could this be common?
