    To be honest.... that's about exactly right. Two chain-activated light bulbs, a ceiling lower than my head, cobwebs everywhere, and rusty weights! It's a great place

    And is 3x8 too much for tire flipping or what? Should it be like 3x3 with heavy-[butt] tire or what? It REALLY gets my heart and legs pumping.

    Oh hehe... well it's more like plyos or sprints... it hurts like hell when your doing it and shortly after, but then it doesn't hurt later. (I'm probly jinxing myself as we type.)

    Hehe yeah they do. You don't have a yard? All you need is enough room to flip the tire once comfortably then run around the other side and flip it again

    Went up to RB today for plyos and liftin.. plyos were pretty intense just did a bunch of stuff like bear crawl and sprint-touch a ton of cones...

    Full Clean : 135x3, 155x2, 175x3, 185x3 into Power Clean :190x3, 205x1, 225x1

    Pullups : 1x10

    Calf Raises : 1x100 (wowza, burn burn burn!)

    I know it was pretty wussy workout, but plyos wiped me out... that's why I hate them BEFORE weights wich makes no sense why the coaches make them like that but w/e I guess, I never lift with the team anymore anyways lol. 179 w/ shoes and clothes today... screw it... I'm just aiming to try to get stronger now, gaining weight is near impossible for me in the summer and I haven't the drive to do it anyways...

    ahh don't be a pansy!!!!!! lol j/k. I'm somewhat doing the same thing now because it's a pain to bulk even though its much easier for me to focus on it during the summer IMO. good workout man. why not just do the plyos after lifting

    Because it's a "team" thing that always happens 30 mins before weights tuesday and thurs, and everyone will get pissed if you do it yourself...

    Easy to bulk in the summer? Dang I wish that's how it was with me... it's been so hot lately, I've easily sweated this month as much as I have in the past 6 months... it's really pathetic. I sweat like a mad man, I sweat in bed with no blankets and a fan on full blast, sitting in the AC room with a fan on me... IDK I just never stop!

    Didn't lift yesterday but actually swam alot (for me). Good cardio indeed. (I'm a lifeguard BTW I get in free) I can't swim worth crap, and I'm in terrible shape but no way to get better than to practice Did like 3 down and backs with like a 20 yard span or w/e, did some dives, repeated twice more. WOWZA I'm out of shape!

    Heheheh IT SUCKS WAY BAD mcvein!! Well, if you don't have asthma + are in horrid shape then it's not that terrible I would assume! Well, I never had swimming lessons I just kinda learned on my own, that would explain why I'm not the best swimmer around :P

    OMG it was hell dude. We had to swim ATLEAST 300 meters every night for 3 weeks, and constantly go over every type of rescue there was. Had to watch pointless movies, take stupid tests and it sucked for me 'cause I was with a bunch of not-so-good-looking females I had to rescue every day!

    Haha, not a looker in the bunch huh?

    I did lifesaving every week for a few years a while back, but then i got out of swimming shape, Im a swimming teacher but thats all theory, no swimming involved really. I probably couldnt even sprint 1 length without dying now.

    Test isnt for a few weeks though, if i even go.

    Good workout today but short and low volume.

    Squat : 135x5, 225x4, 250x3, 260x3, 270x3, 295x1

    Leg Extensions... just did with heavy weight till failure then took some off and did till failure then took off and did till failure one last time.

    Would of done more with hammies but hamstrings were already crampin' up just doing squats so I layed off.
