Wow. Seems sort of redundant to brag about something then not have it out for use. Too bad. I was looking forward to your opinion of it.

I have a Texas Deadlift bar at home and I love it.  I would highly recommend one.  But only for deadlifts.  It's got a lot of whip and small diameter so would not be good at all for bench or squats.  If you're looking for one bar that does it all I'd get the Texas Power bar or maybe look into something from Rogue.  They have a massive selection of bars and they have ratings for knurling and whip on all of them to help you choose.

I have 3 bars already or I'd buy one from them myself.  :D

This morning I completed 531 Push/Pull/Legs (C31_2C) as follows:

Squats  5-135, 5-155, 5-175, 5-195, 5-225, 3x4 @ 250

Superset:
SSB Squats  5x10 @ 195
SLDL  8-179, 8-190, 8-223 (Off 4" Blocks)

Superset:
Calf Raises 3x10 @ 195
Back Raises 3x15

Bodyweight: 218.0 Pounds (Down 4.2 pounds from 222.2 on 7/9)

Workout Duration: 54:06.73 mm:ss (with 1:00 rest between sets)

Great workout this morning.  This was my first day back from a 5 day camping trip where I did no lifting.  I pushed it a little by introducing the BBB sets on SSB but it is something I've been wanting to implement for a while and plan to continue for several cycles so I figured there was no time like the present especially since it is a light week.

*******************

While I was camping I took the dogs for 2 trail runs.

On Tuesday we ran 3.7 miles in 55m:13s, climbed a total of 313 ft to a max elevation of 6695 ft and burned an estimated 615 kcal.

On Wednesday we ran 4.06 miles in 1h:03m:25s, climbed a total of 318 ft to a max elevation of 6721 ft and burned an estimated 655 kcal.

Both runs were tough and hot but the scenery was great and it is awesome to run and breathe in the mountain air so that was worth it.

Did you ever get to lift with the bar or is it just for show?

I've never seen it out on the gym floor to this day despite the big show they made on Facebook and Instagram about getting it. 

They got some shitty little foam "deadlift platform" a few weeks ago and posted about it on Instagram.  I posted and asked if they were going to get a proper deadlift bar to go with it and they deleted my post.  LMAO.

My other gym got two new power bars recently with good knurling (but no whip) so I deadlift there now.  I get there early enough that I can always get one of the two.  So far anyway.

Toby,

I know I am very late on this and you may not even log in anymore but I never come into the journal section any longer.
I just wanted to say I am so very sorry for your loss.

If there is ever anything I can do for you please don't hesitate to ask.

Eric
I just happened upon this today, man I am so sorry buddy. Too late and too little I know, but my heart is with you. Hope things are mending for you and you are doing ok
