Thanks all, It was so good to get back to nature......Im a country boy at heart although I enjoy most things in life.
I find I feel at peace in the wilderness, you can not get the same feeling in a big City.
I will try post some more pics since you enjoy them.
Leg work..............quad killers.

Done, short day today I skipped squats as my upperback neck is pretty crunched up.
Quads were in some serious pain, goal here is to build size and conditioning in the lower body using a safe movement you can really push.
Brutal superset there Nick.
Camping trip looks/sounds awesome. Where did you go?
My legs would of fell off from that man, nice variation
Cool pics and vids. Always wanted to box a wallaby lol.
Quad killer alright!! Your are crazy man, that must destroy the legs
Need to get on that quad killer routine of yours. Haha. Glad to see you still truckin along on your quest!
Those are some crazy leg presses. I bet your pretty sore right now, lol.
Strange Im not too bad.......need to push it more I guess lol.

New toy in the mail today.
1/4" thick yet nimble in hand. SR 101 steel.......razor sharp pry bar for any chore.
Haulin Steel................moving to next level.
8" blocks sumo-
Floor 145 x 5
Blocks 235 x 2
325 x 1
415 x 1
505 x 1
595 x 1 piss easy fucking joke
685 x 3 PR easy but bar was damp again so had to stop at 3
Straps down speed sets from floor-
325 x 2
375 x 2 x 7 sets nice and explosive
That is all, upperback tomorrow I was to hungry to continue.
8" blocks are pretty high I guess but I am happy to rep the weight fairly easy.
Consistently handling huge weights Nick!! What do you reckon your pull from the floor would be at now?
No joke, still taking it to new heights!

Heavy weights being moved that session! Love how 595 was piss easy for ya, haha!
Impressive pulls as usual.
Thanks heaps guys!!
Justin, the block pulls do not give me a direct carryover. They build my potential from the floor IMO so they are more of a long term builder and I am more than happy to spend year after year haulin steel.
To be honest I just love pulling big, its all the same to me. PR from floor, PR from blocks, better speed with 500 its all good :)
I even love heavy curls and leg presses ha ha............never going to make a dollar out of this.
Speaking of curls.....
45 x 5
95 x 5
115 x 5
135 x 5
155 x 4
165 x 4
95 x 21s x 2 sets
115 x 8 x 2 sets
5 sets of 20
Front barbell raises-
3 sets of 15
The bicep work is needed, feel its making my pulls better.
^^ You just want to get an arm pump on!! Lol. I actually do find they help my elbow pain to be honest!
Ha ha I weigh 223 and my arms only only 16"......they need it.
This year ill bring em up then from there just maintain.
Leg day coming up, think ill try squats in briefs.
Gotta get stronger.
Awesome pulls man. Where does 8" fall? if its still below the knee that should be fine. You think 16" at 220 is bad? try 16.5 at 246. FAIL.
