55 Gallon Oil Drum Bearhug Carries/Prowler Pushes Medleys
27 Minutes of Stretching
Comments: Woke up earlier than usual as stuff needed to be done. Had to pick up stones from Jenkins' place and then take them out to Lancaster to their new home. Kind of weird going to Jenkins' gym and seeing his stuff and him not there and with WSM happening, constant reminders the he is gone. Out at Ironmill so figured I'd do my workout there. Sumo pulls for triples. Similar to last time, just my grip was a bit better. It tricked me with how nice 455lbs felt in my hands that I had no reason to think 495lbs would be a bridge too far. Could only pull the one DOH and had to switch to alternated grip. Lost bits of fingernail on my underhand grip side. Only got a double with 530lbs. Maybe would have had another rep if I hadn't screwed up so bad the set before, missing a lift and then being out of position for the remaining pulls. Didn't realize there wasn't a sandbag or prowler there so I had to go home to finish up the workout. Felt like sleeping the whole drive back. Swept up the street of loose gravel and got ready for the suck Took out 50lbs from the oil drum and put some tape around it to help with the slip factor. Probably need to invest in a sandbag and a keg. Doing the medley once was bad enough, let alone five times. Going to sleep forever tonight haha.
