Nothing new, just hanging with the boys and lifting a lot of weights. I built a squat rack in my shed so I get to do my favorite lift as much as my legs will handle. Soon I'll be limited by weight as I only have 150 pounds available. I have two truck tires that each weigh ~45# that I can throw on the bar... they're my beatin' tires for the sledge hammer. I am also messing around with a ~200# log that provides an amazingly difficult full body ass whoopin when you flip it end over end (power clean it up to my chest, then walk it upright with my hands and tip it over). I made 4 flips before nearly loosing my lunch and I feel it in my hamstrings and shoulders today. This is the kind of strength that I am after now, functional stuff and less of a gym based strength. The desire to run even a step hasn't crept in to me for quite a while now. Kind of scary but I feel this every year and it always comes back. Maybe in a few weeks once we get a good layer of snow on the ground I'll feel it. But for now I'll just let it be.
