Skeptic: Yeh just had to pull up when I was ready for some heavy box squats. I think I've been sitting at my desk too much this week, just stiff in the lower back.
El Freako: I got those front squats ATG as well, so I'd max at about 1.5xBW. Nice going for a guy who couldn't walk this time 3 yrs ago.
Samoan: Here's some encouragement; I've added 50kg rack deadlift, 30kg to my deadlift and 20kg to my ATG squats from just working my hammys better.
Dan: I hope that I'll get this thesis done in the next few days and finally get some rest. THen I'll be fresh for once when I'm lifting.
Prizefighter: Thanks for stopping by. I don't have any other setup for farmers walks other than DB's. I've found though that a lot of the standard DB's in gyms suck to use, either they have no knurling on the grips (which make them borderline pointless in my book) they have rubber plates that grab on your clothes, or they are too wide so you have to hold them out from your body more than you need to. My home setup I've made two handles out of some 2.5" thick pipe that attach to my DB's such that they hang at knee height. This means my DB's don't clip my legs with each stride. Ideally I'll knock up something similar to the Ironmind farmers walk bars sometime in the future.
Either way I love farmers walks as a great GPP workout. Second only to sex.
Just finished training out in the backyard. It was a reasonable session except for the dog needing heaps of attention. So every set was interrupted by the dog wanting me to throw the ball. At least that will keep the dog lean.
