    ZenMonkey- yes it is man, training weaknesses make you stronger, im beginning to thicken up in my mid back and my booty is beginning to fill out my jeans and shorts even more, to the point to where i was doing RDL's once and this super hot milf walked over to me and asked me what exercises do i do for my butt because she was trying to build hers up...lol

    borracho- it is man if you have a place to flip one, store it and get one then its definitely worth it.


    brihead- yeah man thanks, I realize im stronger than most 245 pound guys but as compared to where I want to be for competition i still have a ways to go before I feel like im ready to go and compete. and yes I do various forms of squats as well as varying forms of all exercises, like I say im not so wrapped up in Exercises but its more about the movement and training that with different exercise for complete muscular and strength development

    Good easy one today, still got good work in

    Good Mornings
    275x3 2 sets
    315x3

    Dead Press
    315x3
    335x3 2 sets
    the weight was right at my chest, so it was a dead push from off the chest

    Pullups
    3x8

    Olympic Squats
    315x3 3 sets
    wanted to do front squats but the tire had my upper pecs and shoulders to sore to hold the weight so i opted for olympic squats instead

    good day overall

    Holy pressing batman! Dead pressing from the chest is brutal. Super strong!

    I hear ya on the ba-donk. If I get pants that fit me in the waist it looks like they were painted on my ass and quads.

    first off if i can get into pants that fit my waist its a miracle....lol, like i can wear a 36 in the waist but i have to buy 38 and in some cases, especially with dress pants, i have to get a 40 for them to go over my thighs and butt, so I always have to wear a belt to keep my pants on, its a necessary evil....lol

    Yea... I did the same. I got real into scotches and whiskies. Only like 100 calories per 1.5oz and no carbs... and I like it alot better than beer.. and one drink seems to last longer. Give Balvenie Double Wood a try sometime.

    sounds good man, this johnnie black is delicious and its lasting a while, but its kinda pricey, but so far so good, im felling good after only two glasses of it, when i get paid next i might begin to buy bigger bottle to last me all week, plus if i move to denver ill be drinking a lot more whiskey since its cooler.

    plus ive been trying to get off beer and drink more vodka, but i mix it with OJ so the sugars may backfire, but im going to try to get more into my whiskey, dont need much, cause im not drinking to get drunk, just a little buzz to relax my mind so i can do to sleep....lol

    naw the tire push is basically you stand it up and you and a friend stand on either side about 5 ft away from the tire and you push it over to each other back and forthkeep your feet square and try not to lean back and push as hard as you can, killer ab workout
