i got a 78% bodyweight snatch and a 95% clean. The jerk isn't there yet. I am just trying to get better every day.

The following are not all time PRs but are definitely PRs from the last 2 years since i took up weightlifting and have now come back to a more general CF program.

Pullups old PR was 30 @ 82kg BW Current best 28 @ 97kg

Rowing - 2k old PR 7:10.2 Current best 7:12.4


Rowing - 5k last three efforts 20:22, 19:36.9, 19:23.2 (PR)

Expecting to get pretty good at rowing and upper body stuff since i can;t use my legs for heavy lifting at the moment

got my chin about 2-3 below the bar in a one-arm pullup attempt, after having 3 drinks, and my only warm-up being some serious reggae dancing.

i've been doing gymnastics training to prepare for climbing season (front lever progressions, weighted ring PUs) but i honestly think that the alcohol had something to do with it too. possibly the lowered inhibition. i don't really know how to explain it.

TGU with 105 lbs at 177bw on Saturday.

David-my one armed chin is still a year off if ever I am just to the point where I can control the first 3-5 inches of the negative portion, then I start accelerating down... Although maybe I'll try a couple of drink and dancing first, you never know

Great job Arden!

Did you possibly have people watching? I know any time I'm messing around with dunking, I get probably an inch and a half higher with an audience. Around three inches higher if there are attractive women in the group.

All those ax/chainsaw skills of his will actually be functional!

Ok you Primitive Screwheads, listen up! You see this? This... is my boomstick! The 12-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about $109.95. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?
