Holy fucking shitballs on a pogo stick!!!

 

Now you know exactly how I felt when 467# went up like the barbell was made of spaghetti noodles.

 

That moment when you absolutely fucking KNOW that next weight is going up!  Crushed it.

While the 475# is awesome, the real treat is seeing your forum enthusiasm return.

Holy moley and I was proud of hitting 123lbs on the bentover row! Talk about tearing it up! 

 

Achievements are achievements, mate, and yours are no less significant than mine.  Good work!

Forgot to mention/answer this part. I'm getting my happy ass back in the gym!  It's been too damn long since I've picked shit up and put shit down.  So that's happening.  

 

I don't know about crushing anything, but stopping the suckage counts too, right? :P 

 

Glad to hear it, buddy.  I'll be popping over shortly to follow along!

Congratulations on that sweet, sweet PR 😊 shoot for the moon.

Those checkboxes look great. Wonder where you got that brilliant idea from ;-)

I'm slightly embarrassed how long it took me to figure out who you were, buddy!  Didn't even figure it out until just now when I scrutinized your avatar closer!

 

Welcome to the forums, and the Rangers!  Glad to have you along for the ride.

475lb deadlift...I guess that deserves a follow.

 

Kidding...that's an awesome milestone PR. Excited to see what else you bring to the table this challenge!

 

Well, a 315# Bench Press would be lovely but that's a lot of PR to ask for in 5 weeks. :P

Thanks!  I thought I was shooting for the moon when I picked up 460.  Thought John was crazy when he and Greg suggested I try John's bar at 467, all covered in elastic bands to keep the itty bitty 2.5# donut weights on.  Then I really shot for the moon when I dumped those 2.5# duds and put on 5# weights on each side for another big pull. 

 

Damn, I'm still riding that high!

 

They are real swell checkboxes, aren't they?  Found them in the Wing Dings font on Microsoft Word.  ;)

Dude I'm jealous over that PR, that bar bending is the sweetest part. 

 

I wish!  Stupid Oly bar hardly bends at all.  I need to talk my coach into picking up some powerlifting bars and iron weights for the gym now that we're expanding next month!

Ya.  Gratz on the 475 pound deadlift.  How did it feel?  Was it as grindy as my first 475 pound pull?

Could definitely feel my back rounding but I honestly believe 475 went up easier than 467 did.  Actually, I think 455 was my worst pull of the day!

I would love to see that welcome back speech, but #MomoaMonday is actually a #MomoaEveryday mentality.  I just try to share the love with my other inspirations/eye candy like #WeidaWednesday and #SackhoffSunday.  Might need to brainstorm a few others.  ;)

 

The time went with the Warriors was indeed time well spent.  Thanks!

 

Did not know Jason Momoa had an Insta! Definitely following along!

 

My current fitness crush is Annie Thorisdottir. So suggesting #ThorisdottirThursday.

Challenge Journal:  Week 0, Day 2.

#Tuesday is too boring on it's own... in keeping with the comments below, allow me to introduce #ToqueLucTuesday!

Today's WOD...

 

CONDITIONING

AMRAP in 40:00 of:

25 calorie AirDyne

10 Muscle-ups Dips (weighted with 25# kettlebell)

5 3 Rope Climbs

04:00 rest between rounds.

* My callouses and grip were having nothing to do with the rings or bar today!  Stuck it out with my friend Melissa to finish our final round even though 40:00 came up within seconds of sitting down back on the bike.  Total time around 46:00.
