Still deadlifting every weekday for the month. Last Friday was 5@70%,4@75%, 3@80, 2@85, and then as many as you can at 90%.

325 for 10. Think I blacked out somewhere around rep 7 and just kept pulling :lol:. Training max went up 20lbs because of that so my new training number is at 380(overall max is 410).

Back is feeling great and I have a feeling my squat total will go up as well.

We have also started incorporating a lot of strict pullups into our workouts. They are paying off huge. Last night's workout was 3 rounds: 5 thrusters @ 115, 10 burpees over the bar, 15 pullups, 200m run. Went unbroken on everything including pullups which would have been a huge stretch 2 months ago. They were the easiest part.

Went to the orthopedic doctor yesterday morning. Finally found out why my back was hurting constantly. Apparently I have spinal facet arthritis.. yay for me. I got three cortisone shots and a steroid pack...which has my stomach hurting pretty bad for some reason. Out of the frying pan and in to the fire. I think the plan is physical therapy and chiropractor. I feel like this is a rough way to start my 30s.

Had a good one today. Front squats at 5@65%, 3@75%, 1@85%, 1@90%(205, 235, 265, 285) Felt really good, didn't need to use a belt.

Try this workout if you have a rower at home...

4 Rounds: 250m row, 10 overhead walking lunge with 45lb plate, 10 floor press(135), 10 kbs. Sell out on the row(guys around 1:35 pace, ladies around 1:45-50 pace. 30 mins later I'm still feeling it.

Not sure if it’s good or bad for my health yet, but me, my son, and my brother built a 18” mini kicker ramp today. Got a good little work out trying it out. View attachment 334623

Im considering doing my first mtb race at uwharrie in February. I have no plan to be competitive but want to see if I can finish it. We rode super-tree and keyauwee counter clockwise wise today. Was little muddy and I had a nasty crash coming off a jump but I survived and had a great time doing it. That mini kicker may have gave me little to much confidence little to soon.

Tomorrow should be a good day for miles as I’m running in a 2 hour charity event.

I'm trying to get rid of what I'm guessing is tendinitis in my shoulder. After a workout a couple weeks ago I started getting sharp pain at the front of the shoulder (can't move arm kind of pain) that shows up intermittently. Tried resting for a week and jumped on the rower and the pain was back immediately after. Ugh.
