[QUOTE=Danielle Benford;380063]Geeze, you're making 300# look easy! You may want to bug your gym about purchasing some more weights!![/QUOTE]

Yea, my ''gym'' is here at my work , it is 300lbs of weight 1 bar 1 pullup station, a forklift for dips and to put rings on, a rope we bradded ourself(talk about hand cramps)and a rack of dumnbell from 8lbs to 40 lbs, so I need to buy more weights. Oh we are thinking of expanding it though!!
I need to get off by lazy but and post some pics of out redneck setup, you guys would laugh at where I do ghd situps and back extensions!!

Good plan, Nik! Hard to follow though when the ego gets in the way (for me at least!!). Quality always pays off. Congrats on a great Angie time!

Thanks, you are right on the ego, I always try not to let ego or pride get in the way, but is seep in without my notice. So I am here to get fit, not make a great time,well yea a great time would be nice, but only if it comes naturally, not cutting corners.

Well, I'm running in the mornings so it is a little more bearable... mid-70's in the early morning and mid-90's for the highs!!! A HUGE difference!

yea, I need to do the same to get these runs in with some sort of strenth, the heat is just a killer for me. I just don't do well in it.

CFWU
Front Squat 10-10-10-10-10 reps

I really worked on getting my but down with really good form.

1. 65lbs
2. 95lbs
3. 135lbs
4. 155lbs
5. 165lbs

It felt good, with my refocus on form and work, I felt like i could have done more, but I'm happy, got body weight on the last set.

Nik Nichols 08-27-2008 11:01 AM

Re: Nik
 
CFWU
For time:
30 Handstand push-ups
40 Pull-ups
50 Kettlebell swings, 1.5 poods
60 Sit-ups
70 Burpees

ok, the hand stand pushups were done with my heels hooked on forklift forks, I can't do strict on the wall HSPU's so this was a variation.

Kettelbell swings with a 40lbs dumnbell (it is the heaviest we have)

Total time 18:17

I liked this one till the burpies, they were tough.
