    hensleya I Pick Things Up and Put Them Down

    Donnie is the biggest pussy in strength sports. Blocked me a long time ago because he thought I made a post about sorinex center mass bells. I didn’t, so he changed his mind.

    He then went public that he was forgiving Sorinex and they were making amends.

    He started making weird comments. Making snide remarks about my thoughts on the Rep bench even though I claimed his pad was better than theirs.

    Then said he was just kidding and I should reach out to him next time I’m in Columbia.

    Then he found out I got a sorinex rack and blocked me again.

    Dude is a certified weirdo.

    As much as I pay Hani I can’t say shit about paying for programming and coaching. Keep us updated on how that AINprogram goes

    I know you and I have discussed it before, but he is the fucking wooooooorst. His whole “poppy power lifter” shit is cringe worthy. To be the first guy to total 3,000lbs he is the most sensitive person in the strength game. It’s utterly embarrassing.

    Any reason to spend more than $50 for an ez curl bar?

    Do you have a pic of the one you’re looking at?some have better angles that are more comfortable and effective.

    Was just checking Amazon for a cheap one. Cap has one on there for like $30 but the angles seem a bit aggressive. Titan has one under $50, figure they can't screw up a curl bar too bad...hopefully.

    I literally pushed the Ohio bar as soon as it turned then went to checkout and whole lot of nothing. Not mad at all, fully expected it to be a too good to be true deal.

    Thinking about getting an axle bar now

    I’m right there with you. I pushed the Bella bar (for wife) immediately and nothing happened. Definitely not pissed about it.

    Testing today.

    3 crossfitter guests have decided to descend upon my lovely non-CF gym and have taken up all 3 of the weightlifting platforms.

    It's been 35 minutes and they have done nothing except talk and stretch. Gonna be really pissed if I can't max out my weightlifting movements after I sqaut

    I'm going to have to in a second. Already tried to throw an Oly bar into a power rack.

    They are about to start a clock and do something super stupid I'm sure.

    I've got 15 minutes or so left squatting so trying to be patient

    I’m assuming since you put your squat in lbs then your Snatch & C&J are also in pounds

    Hear that, thankfully I threw my scale away so I really haven't gained any weight as long as I never weigh myself. That's the logic I'm using and I'm sticking to it.

    I've gotten fatter than I want to be. A little too casual eating a lot of bad stuff.

    Ill weigh myself next week and make a plan to get down to 89kgs/196 in about 12 weeks for my next meet.

    I’m not even sending my coach my weight this week because it’s going to be egregious. 12 weeks to lose ~7-9lbs then water cut 2-4lbs that week

    FYI - CWS said that if you sign up for the beta version of the AI training, you get locked in at that price and they are developing an app to go with it (which I assume will be much better than the excel sheets they are using for the beta).

    I'm only on my second week, but I will say that they have been super responsive to email questions. Emailed a list on Thanksgiving night and got a response first thing Friday morning.

    I've recently decided to say fuck the belt, especially with deadlifts.

    Will let you all know when I contract a serious injury

    I can go without it on everything except squats. Everything feels right in the world when I squat with a belt.

    Congrats on your awesome core.

    Haven’t used them yet, but I’m impressed with the shipping on the gangsta wraps. Ordered them Thursday and got a message on Sunday that they had been delivered. I assumed that was a mistake so didn’t even check. On my way out the door this AM I checked the mailbox just in case and sure enough they were in there. I didn’t even know Sunday delivery was a thing from the USPS.

    Thread is dead

    Had a good deadlift day after expecting the worst. 225 felt heavy but eventually built my way up to 365x5 and 405x2. Pretty happy for that on a day I wasn't feeling it at all. Have had some amazing soreness this week after taking 3-4 days off for thanksgiving.

    Deadlifts make 0 sense in when you’re going to hit a big number. Could be on a day you’re fresh, could be on a day after a ton of squat volume.

    any suggestions to lift with this. Bandaid won't stay, tape will cut off fingers a bit, I have no idea besides wearing gloves or sucking it up
