Default VBlog #14 Thick bar and SSB

This workout put a hurting on me. I listed it in my log, but figured a lot of people won't bother looking there because they don't like me very much.

It was. This was the workout I'd been waiting for all week.

It's a lot harder to rack the Axle, due to the thickness of the bar and because it's non-revolving. Plus I'm lazy and have suboptimal PC form.

Not as cute as my son, but I do enjoy the Vblog. Always good lifts to see.

dude its harder to rack because you aren't getting your elbows out in front of the bar. perhaps you mean that but I can't see why. you've got a good scoop looks like fun.

don't mind me I like giving unsolicited advice

You're right, Lucky Pierre, about the elbows. With the non-revolving bar and the weight relatively light, and my ability to catch the clean in that half-assed rack, it's laziness and not drilling it that's not making me rack it right.

One of many things I have to work on.
