> Not too difficult. Biggest issue was shakiness and lack of stability. Also, I should find a way to hang the weights behind me so I'm not pulled forward so much. I did a good job of resisting it and keeping somewhat straight but I want to avoid what happened years ago with my sternum from dips.

God, I needed that.

I'm weighing 210 lbs. with no food in me. Work has been killer. I've been training consistently - even when I was away in San Luis Obispo I went out to the woods behind our inn and did TFS - but diet has been sporadic.

I'd probably tout the fact that I'm the strongest pound-for-pound that I've ever been if I cared about relativism. As it stands..."The universe don't give a shit what you weigh. What matters is whether you pick up this heavy ass weight or not."
