Mat pulls (8)
495 x 10
6 more than last week. My set-up was solid today. I have the weight orchestrated diagonally on the flattest patch of ground I could find and it doesn't roll off anymore. I also initially considered not lifting because my legs and rear are sore from that hike but if anything I felt BETTER able to engage my glutes.

SSB squats
337 x 5, 5, 5

Neck crunches (forward and reverse)

SSB holds
510 x 15, 15
Missed the right stand when reracking on the second set and had to feel my way into it. Terrifying.

25, 25, 25, 25

Crush gripper #1
10, 10, 10, 10, 10

Reverse crunches and bicycles


  1. That looks like one of the best lifting days you've had in a while for mat pulls. Awesome work. Glad you got a handle on things.

  2. Thanks, but shamefully, I have to ask you to hold that kind thought. I actually did 495 instead of 500.

    1. I like plate PRs too, haha. Since you're using non-calibrated plates, there is a good chance you're lifting much more than that anyway. One of these days, I'd be interested in weighing all my plates and finding out how much they actually weigh, but I know that knowledge would fuck with me for the rest of my training career.
