1.25". I think I'll try to keep the working "hold" weights in the 0:30 range so I'll be going up on the axle and staying with the farmer's weight for he time being.

Is the ceiling too low in the basement for the pressing I'm guessing?  Its funny that was actually a factor when I was buying a house, not alot of basements work for that!

Going to try to do 500 calories worth of dedicated cardio a day. Here’s day 1.

That's a hell of a goal!  Are you looking to get the BW to a certain level??

Nah, just see what happens. I should’ve stated it’s just a October thing. Probably get scaled back reasonably after that.

Low back is still achey. Figure it’s from the elliptical and getting a bit of a twist that I’m not used to. Considering a 8-12 week bodybuilding block. 

 

Without doing the heavier push presses in awhile the heavier stuff isn’t great and I’ve lost my pp pop. 

 

Side note; these French presses are the shizzle!

Strict Press 175 x 3 x 3r, 185 x 3 x 1r
Jokers 195/205/215 x 1

BB French Press 140 x 3 x 6r

DB Incline Press 90e x 3 x 6r

Pulldowns 180 x 3 x 8r

I'm hoping it'll transfer to a better press eventually. I need to get used to holding heavier weights again.

Crap day

DO Axle Deads 298 x 1
AG Axle Deads 463 x 1, 413 x 5 x 1r

 

Did some 48kg kettlebell cleans and then the shizzle; decided to try a grade 8 reverse and nailed it! Haven’t done much if any bending in years and this is a pretty significant difficulty.
