Rolling Thunder Lifts
Atlas Stone Loads to 65"
26 Minutes of Stretching
Comments: Still sick but better than yesterday. I eventually got up the gumption to do some events. Speed session on yoke with the drop calls at 6.9 seconds. Despite being sick, I improved on most things. I cut it close with 625lbs as it was just over 50'. I knew I had to be ready to get moving if I wanted to get 50' or more with 665lbs. I was moving and the cross bar hit me in the back of the head after I dropped it. Made it over 50' so happy about that. Took my new rolling thunder handle to Iron Mill to lift. Much harder than the older model I used out in Lancaster. After I reached my limit with both hands, I did something I'd like to think of as overloads. Lift it off the ground with both hands and then hold/control it back down with one hand. Very exhausting, hopefully I can get back to my old model numbers on this one. Then stones. I had the stuff all setup but it started to drizzle and then it became a downpour. Pulled everything inside. The 250lbs was wet and it was like trying to hug mud so I went with what I thought was the 290lbs stone and it was quite a bit tougher than I would have liked. Lucky for me, it was actually the 325lbs stone. Working on getting a good pop out of the lap. Worst rep had to be number six, with the best being perhaps number eight or nine. Cleaned up, stretched and back home to rest. Hoping I get over this cold soon.
