    thanks d00d. i was going to ask you about single ply briefs. my birthday's coming up soon, and i'm thinking about asking for an ipod shuffle, and some single ply breifs. what do you suggest for my first pair? i don't want to make the mistake of getting something that isn't quality.

    Single ply briefs....hmmm, I would say metal, but they're double ply. if you're not goin' gangsta, then just get a metal single ply suit. No real need for single ply breifs.

    so lately i've been doing quite a bit of foam roller work. i love that thing, totally worth getting. feels great on the legs and back. i'm going to start over this week, with ME bench tonight. i got some vanilla protein powder and orange gatorade powder, i'm going to make a cream sicle carb/protein drink. i start back working tomorrow, it'll be nice to have a schedule again. another update later tonight.

    done. i hadn't done the DB overhead presses in forever, i always hated them, but i felt like doing them for some reason. pretty good workout, i got an ipod finally, and listening to some heavy jams definetely helped me out...a lot better than the music they play at the 24 hour gym. friday night me and a couple friends are going to try to net/wrestle a 5 foot catfish out of the water for my friend's birthday. my birthday is sunday too. i'll let you know how it goes.

    just the jump stretch ones anchored by heavy DB's, the same ones HB uses in his vids. there's only one pair of bands at my gym, and they are really flemsy. i can add a pretty good amount of resistance with the jump stretch bands, though they aren't real bands. probably should invest in some.

    so it's my birthday. already got an ipod, and my friend made me an atlas stone. we were talking about making one before, because i was sure as hell i couldn't do it alone, this guy is a real renaissance man, and it took him a good while. he used this recipe:

    http://www.tc.umn.edu/~keen0018/makeastone.htm

    it's probably around 265 lbs, it was pretty hard lifting it in the back of my truck. i was the only one that could lift it, my friend who can deadlift more than i can, but is probably about 4 inches taller couldn't lift it. my friend also yanked a keg from a gas station for me to toss around, i'm not sure if i'm going to be able to add weight with sand or water in it, but i'll try to figure it out. i'm going to start strongman training saturdays. if things went the way i'd like, i'd have 3 stones at different weights, a farmers walk, a log press, a sled, and maybe a big tire. thats just to start out with. anyway, here are pics of the stone and the keg.

    for now i'm just gonna toss it overhead, until i can figure out how to get some sand or water in it, then it'd be perfect for cleans and presses. thanks for the compliment man.
