  1. That was close to my other suggestion, which was 'go get a job in a lumberyard'.
  2. Big-ass sandbag. I like the one from Mountain Athlete as it is bombproof. Get used to picking it up & walking it in a bear hug. Add sand over the months until it's at or over your fiancé's weight. The bag will be WAY harder to manage than your fiancé, which will help a ton. When I was carrying a 150# sandbag around my house as a finisher I could pretty easily cary people who were 200# +.
  3. It's a funny thing, really. I learned from a few RKC folks, but when I did the Crossfit KB cert with former RKC Jeff Martone, he was clearly pleased that my snatches were as close as is reasonable with a non-competition bell to GS style. They are much, much easier on the body. That said, the AKC, at least when I took their course in about 2007, had some aspects of what they taught that just seemed outright 'incorrect' for anything other than sport training. I love the tension techniques that come from Pavel, it's something to counter all of the whack stuff that the ACSM and such groups teach (or at least used to teach, I've been out of the loop for ages on that stuff)- like not holding your breath during maximal lifts!
  4. Yeah, right?! I was reading s bunch of stuff from Jason Ferruggia, and decided to join his paid site, which is really dead-on perfect for me. Nice mix of strength work, in a lot of ranges I tend to avoid, with programmed mobility & sprint work. All the shit I avoid, all in one place.
  5. It is! The designer is MUCH better at this than I am, and it's a very supportive group. I'll still pop in to other threads I expect, but it doesn't make sense to post his stuff in public as it is his intellectual property.
  6. Justa note that I am killing my log here. I have decided to outsource my programming to someone else and will be doing all my tracking on their internal site. I'll still come & see what y'all are doing from time to time! all the best- Vector
  7. When I was about 15, a woman I know demanded that when I received a compliment, I was to respond 'thank you for noticing'! I didn't say it, but THINKING it helped!
  8. This whole journal is the most beautiful thing I have read in a long, long while. Thank you.
  9. Yeah, I use them downstream only to keep some dirt from washing down the hill. I've got cedar logs from trees I took down for the stuff that is actually anywhere near anything we eat! Heavy bastards, indeed!
  10. I love the IT hoodlum pic!
  11. Sept. 17 2014 Deload (fail!) Today I tore apart an 18 foot long planter left here by the previous homeowners. Made of railroad cross ties. Relocated the ties, half nearby, the other half down the hill and into the garden. Fuckers are heavy, but other than one jammed finger and a few scrapes, I won. Hell of a workout!
  12. Twilight- exactly! In time the pets learn to stay clear, or you get new ones!
  13. This is a fantastic read! Thank you for journaling it for us. Sleep well, little Catspaw.
