Re: Grace's Log
 
Grace,

What happened to your sandbag TGU avatar? I thought it was the quintessential CF avatar. Flat on your back under a heavy weight that you had to lift repeatedly. Not that there's anything wrong that Anthony & Jodi's t-shirt (I like it; I'd order one of those myself, if I thought I was worthy of it), but it's been done before.

And yes, I know I probably shouldn't be complaining about avatars, given my own (I lack a photographer to capture my feeble attempts at muscle ups), but I hadn't gotten around to complimenting you on the former one yet.

PS Good work on those deadlifts. That 2xBW benchmark is a good one and it's right around the corner.

[QUOTE=Elizabeth Terris;312354]Come visit ANY time! I've got a place for you to flop and a car for you to borrow so you can visit your niece.

AHHHH the sweet love hate relationship with Lady Fran. You did awesome especially cleaning the weight up.

Another tip, try HEAVY front squatting before you do Fran, makes the weight seem lighter.

Nice HSPUs![/QUOTE]

Thank you, ET. I had so much fun there! :)

Also, thanks for the sound advice. It makes a lot of sense on Heavy FS.

[B]Aaron, Ms. V, Camille[/B] - Thank you!

[B]Ms. V[/B], One day I'll have something in YouTube in my tank top, shorts and high socks pullin' the load. :D You look great, btw. Your competition is around the corner! Best of luck!

[B]Camille[/B], pistols require a lot of balancing and ankle dorsal flexion control. Try practicing 1 Leg on a chair first...then you'll be gunning those legs pretty soon.

Thanks for visiting, Patrick! [COLOR="Red"]Soon.....soon...I will bring back the sandbag TGU[/COLOR] or as the veterans (i.e. David Wood) call it, the BFR 2000. Your avatar is very cerebral! It's cool! I'm currently pumped on DL with white socks (props to Jodi Bainbridge)....ergo, the resurrection of this avatar.
