Nice work Joe especially on the flask! 185lb. x 5 reps for 2 sets is super

Thanks Mike, but keep in mind, I don’t know how much different it makes it, but mine is hooked with a carabeener rather then with a pin through the loading pin for ease of use. I can’t stand removing the pin all the time to add plates with my sciatica, believe it or not.🤣

400 on that would be epic.  Would definitely be in some rare company!

Good lifting. I know the weight is probably light for your body but you might try deadlifting in socks since your feet are a bit unstable on some of the lifts your heels seem to want to leave the grou

@Joseph Sullivan 400 with that would be a monster lift, I think you should go for it. Perfect candidate

Sciatica is brutal! Well-done big guy

Strong work Joe!  Carabiner helps a little, but not a ton.  You can't get much tilt when the weight gets up there anyway.  That's big weight.

Thanks Mike, I was wondering that myself.

Today was supposed to me 2 inch axle day, but I felt more like using the 2 3/8 inch. I went with my gut and scored some PRs. I actually prefer the 2 3/8 version

210x10 

260x8

270x6

280x5

320 for timed hold (NEW PR)

330 (just missed)

arm assassin thumb blaster

140x10

185x10

195x6

70 pound kettle bell swings for some strength/cardio

70x25

70x25

70x25

70x25

320 timed hold 

miss at 330. Think I would have had it had I not done so many heavy high rep  sets previously

Good stuff Joe!

I like to work up to my heavy single or PR attempt first and then drop down for my rep work and/or holds.  That way I get all the work in, but it doesn't affect my max attempts.

Thanks for the tip big Guy! This was an impromptu attempt at the end. Just got a little crazy and went with it. 🤡

Good stuff Joe.  With all the 2 3/8 work lately, you should be getting some good lifts with that nasty hard Inch.
