Doing primarily sandbag work is humbling, but effective.  I'm also getting better at it, so there's that.

Still in it with strongman training and running a lot.  No idea when I'll return to a commercial gym.

Still haven't seen the inside of a regular weight room, but strongman training is keeping me busy.  I'm very close to being able to do farmers carries with body weight in each hand, though in my case that's not too impressive.

It is to be noted that farmers handles make a decent approximation of a trap bar for dead lifts in a pinch.

It is also to be noted that tabata push ups are awful in every way.

Still doing strongman training and running, and I'm still making progress.  I haven't thrown an implement in anger in many months, so it would be good to spend some time on that to keep my sanity.

Hope everyone is staying as safe and healthy out there as they can.

One month check in -
  • Sled work is the devil
  • Sandbags fight back
  • I'm good at pull ups
  • Single side farmers carries rule
  • I have the flexibility of a rusty lawn chair

That is all,

Tom

Semi-regular check in -
  • Still doing only strongman work but no longer losing weight, which is good.  I'm moving great though.
  • I have managed to throw a little and am having to learn new leverages now that I'm 30 pounds lighter. 
  • Working on a speed game instead, but it's uphill without the extra mass and strength I used to have.

Can I borrow that 30lbs that you so frivolously threw away? 30lbs doesn't just grow on trees, ya know!? Must be f'n nice. For real though congrats on your hard work paying off. Ya done good.

It wasn't intentional, per se.  It is a mix of diet changes, stress, and old age.  I'm down to 172 now, but I sure can do pull ups.  HWFD is back to being comical.
