I hope everything worked out Justin.  That's no fun.

I'm going to try to make Tartan Day South in April, if they have room for me.  Hope to see you there, brother.

Hey Tom, thank you and things are going well for her. Just the recovery road now. I will not be at Tartan Day - I'll be at Dunedin in Tampa, FL. My fiancé's brother lives down there, so we get to go to the beach, I go fishing, she visits with college friends and family, and this year we are planning on Busch Gardens. Just sucks that it's the same weekend as Tartan, which is like 1:15 from my house. But I enjoy the vacation haha

2/14 
13 miles of walking with a backpack sprayer for landscaping job. I was spent

2/15 Inaugural Asheville, NC Celtic Fest
Braemar - 32' yuck. needs work
Open Stone - 39'+, not terrible for me in these conditions
HWFD - 29'+, yuck. To make excuses, I was fatigued from yesterday and cautious of the footing.
16lb Sheaf - 30'. Went decent. Been working a different technique and didnt have enough for 32'. Bag did pick up some water as we went but who knows if it was significant.
WOB - 13', cleared 12 and 13' on 1st attempts, then couldnt touch 14'. ugh
Caber - 12:00, they weren't the biggest.
Overall - 2nd

This was a fun little games. First year, decent turnout for the festival. Too small of field for LWFD or Hammers. It was cold and the ground was quite soggy. Hats off to Thor, he threw great all day in the conditions. Definitely more work to do but ok with this for being February and all things considered.

2/16 - Quick Upper Pump sesh before All you can eat sushi

2/17 ME LOWER

Cambered Bar Box Squat 5x2
370 bar weight, 1,2,3,3,3 chains per side for the sets

Cambered Bar Suspended GMs 4x5
150 bar weight, 0,1,2,3 chains per side for the sets

Belt Squat 4x10 225 pretty quick
GHR 3x8
45-degree back extensions 3x20 - YES BACK PUMP

I hear you man.  If my trig is going to turn to slippery mud after a couple of throws, I just am not willing to risk blowing out a knee to save a practice.  I'll move on to WOB or try again another day.

it's not enough for fun, just enough for annoyance. and really it's just all the rain. It stays flooded on my throwing area behind the gym.

2/28 
HWFD 10 throws - went pretty damn good
WOB - 8 throws, meh. it's wob.
Light Upper stuff afterwards. And some reverse hyper.

2/29
Easy Upper
Snatch Grip Hi Hang Hi Pulls - few sets of 5
Reverse Hyper x some
-lots of rehab work
Threw Some Shot Puts. Was Average.

3/1
Back has been real tweaky lately. Today was the worst. Finally got things "back in line" and somewhat trained. Not sure if it's from reverse hyper 2 days in a row or if it was sleeping with my feet elevated. Feet elevated are helping my hip pain when sleeping/waking up. Trying to get it all figured out fast.

Belt Squat vs bands - 5's up to 455
Lots of stabilizing core work - planks, side planks, stir the pot, bodysaws, deadbugs
Power Cleans - up to 135kg. Got 2 singles, then hit 3 pulls as I started to get scared.

Well...2020 sucked didn't it? So here's an update on me for anyone that still gets on here beside THE Jeff Kaste. 

I joined the Charlotte Fire Department! My academy started October 12th, 2020 and due to 2 difference 2 week covid quarantines we are slated to get out May 21, 2021.

I threw 3 games in 2020, with very little training other than what led into the Arnold. The Arnold was weird and awesome all in one. Competed with a tough group and didnt have the best day but I'd do it all again in a heartbeat. Then threw 1 games in August just for fun and popped out a HUGE HWFD PR at 37' out of nowhere. I'll take it. 

Squatted a lifetime PR in September of 501lbs in sleeves only. Benched 402 in May for a raw PR. Thats all I can really remember.

In June, I started to run and did a lot of crossfit-esk type training to prepare for the Academy. Thier PT is kinda crappy for me...we don't lift heavy or explosive except for heavy bench. Lots of bw/sandbag type crossfit, circuit work, and running. 11 weeks left of the academy and I can get back after it.

I feel weak as hell right now. I was in hella good shape going into the academy and have gotten worse. I have tried to hold back doing anything extra as to not risk injury because if I get hurt outside the academy then Im out of a job. 

SO now starting to slowly add a little back in.

3/6/21
Speed Free Squats
Cambered Bar + 2 heavy chains/side 200lbs 8x2

Speed Deads vs monster minis 265bs 6x2 1 rep conventional 1 rep sumo
- paired with a 50lb sandbag toss after each rep

Reverse Hyper 3x15

- I'm hoping throwing that sandbag will translate to wob. It's more fun, easier to setup, easier on my hands/thumbs lol

3/7/21
Hi Hang Snatch 3's 40/50/60/70/75/80kg
1 Clean + 3 FSQ 60/70/80/90/100kg

Just feeling out the oly movements. Like I said previously, not trying to push anything too crazy yet and just trying to spend the next few months re-acclimating.

You're right. I am here still. 

Congrats on the new job man, that's awesome! 

I hope 2021 is a little better than 2020 but honestly, I am not holding my breath. Train like there will be some comps, though! And stay healthy! 

Glad to see more than just me and Andy Crowley on here.

I read this everyday.  I wouldn’t post my workouts because they are lame compared to the guys that still post here. Mainly kettle bell stuff, body weight, some bands, rowing, stationary bike.  At my age, just fighting rusting joints and trying to keep moving.

Congratulations on new job Justin.
