    Great workout. Does your gym have all that stuff available for you to use or was this done somewhere else? You'll definitely be in good shape for football with that, good work.

    Thanks alot Dblock No, our school weightroom doesn't have anything really... if they were to have Tires and strongman stuff, if you used it people would either A) hurt themselves or B) laugh at you and say 'u look like homo'...

    I did it at my friends house, his dads gotta gym, his basement has a weightroom, and he's got a bench/squat and strongman set up outside

    Thanks stump and north!! Hehe we didn't catch any coons but there was about 4 roaming around all night.

    Stump, at 5'11 180 I will play offensive guard/tackle and defensive end I'm our our strongest lineman in bench clean and DL, and like 2nd in squat. The first strongest in squat is my exact height and weight too, we're both Juniors In Iowa 1A football, 190+ and athletic is very rare!! I'm hoping to get back up to atleast 188 or so before football starts, I'm like 182 now.

    Also, does anyone have tips on tire flipping on about how to not destroy your wrist muscles? Its like the muscles right around where the veins are where people slit their wrists, IDK if their muscles or what but they are aching like a mother!! Is it just because I've never tire flipped before and if I keep doing it they'll get more 'conditioned'? Thanks

    7:30 ran some plyos, was totally daed afterwards. Will do swim lessons then go lift @ Gages. Thinking heavy deads and back/hammies today.

    Hmm just did some rack pulls and pullups today, STILL wiped from tuesday

    Rack Pulls : 135x8, 225x3, 275x1, 295x3, 315x3, 325x3, 335x3... quite the killer.

    Pullups : 3x10... felt weird on pullups today.

    Coach L called me yesterday and wanted to make sure i'm doin good on liftin, and atleast he understands that I'm doing strongman stuff and lifting at Gages to make me better He says he cant wait to coach me this season.

    No doubt you're gonna be at the forefront on the team, really appear to be enthusiastic about it all.

    Thanks you two, your support throughout this is very much appreciated

    Bako - are you fast/coordinated/smart? With your strength you would be an amazing LB and a hard hitting DB I think!

    Big relief today, wrapped up my elbow with some knee wraps and did a whole bench workout without feeling elbow pain AT ALL!

    Bench w/ 40lb Chains : 135+40 x4, 155+40x4, 177+40x4

    Bodyweight Rows (lay on ground and grab bar above you and row): 3x10

    Bench w/ Elbow Wrap : 135x6, 155x5, 205x1, 225x1, 245x1, 255x1... 255x1 was pretty hard but I got it up decent enough, was a huge relief I'm getting my bench strength back already!!

    Felt no pain in elbow today doing rows, or heavy bench!!

    Was planning on doing tire flips and presses today, but started to downpour. Might to it tomorrow!!

    Nice benching dude! Tied ur old PR it looks like.

    Bako - are you fast/coordinated/smart? With your strength you would be an amazing LB and a hard hitting DB I think!
    Basically. I'm knowledgable to pretty much freakin coach the team, lol, at least in a few positions. I used to be really fast, at least top 5 on the team, but I haven't ran in a couple years so I'm sure I'm not that fast anymore. The only thing is, I can't think on my feet. And if you can't do that, you can't play .

    Ah, is your school big? Heck man, back in 7th grade when I thought football was the game with orange bouncing balls, I didn't know squat! I asked coach where halfbacks went, and he pointed me to the linemen and I didnt know the difference!! Now, 4 years later, I have become a decent football player by just playing and learning by myself, with some help from coaches/teammates. I say, if you love it, then play it and you will for sure get better man!

    Oh yeah, picked up a new elbow support tonight. It's a Mueller 'Neoprene Blend' Elbow Sleeve... It slips on nice and fits well, and adds support to my elbow. Will be great to use for football!! Only $11.
