axle press 160 5x strict
log 180 3x.

Set up the medley 100lb kettlebell, 150lb keg, 210 axle, 225 log.

Did two sets of this. First set was slow. 2nd set was solid. I flew thru everything fast and all pressing was done well. I had no trouble with the kb and the keg. was able to one time the log at the end.

I am gradually going to increase the axle and log to 250, 260 respectively. The medley at the badass is a stone but I am doing a keg press because we have no stones to press.

480 50ft, 680 50ft.

WSM yoke 880

First set got about 20 ft.
2nd set got it 30ft in three pickups. Had a good rhythm for about 20ft. This was a big lift for me. More progress to come in the future.

Frame 650lb 1 set of 50ft.

out. Felt like crap got a sinuse thing and I cant hear out of my right ear. I got the job done though...
