I like hot tubs but have not wanted to deal with the maintenance associated with them.
Would rather have a steam sauna than a hot tub, but then I don't get muscle knots (have to have muscle first I'm guessing  ;) ). It's mostly my joints that need something and I found a steam sauna works better than a hot tub when we belonged to fitness place that had both. Plus the steam sauna was nice when I'd get a cold; cleans out the sinus's nicely.

I have one and like it. Not sure how effective it is for recovery and stuff bit it is nice to relax in. It's getting to the time of year now where it won't get much use since it isn't comfortable when it's hot out. Ours came with the house and I'm  not sure I'd fork over money for a new one.

Anyone use a hot tub regularly?  I had one at my last house 15 or so years ago, and loved it.  I've resisted getting one the past few years, because I know my kids are going to be a pita with it.  We are putting a monstrosity of a deck on the back of the house this year, so it's time.  I picked out a Marquis spa, because they have more of the hydrotherapy crap than mos other brands.  I'm not sure how much it's going to help, but I need all the help I can get.  Just curious to see if anyone else has had any experience with them.

Stout looking training session Greg. I like the set up you have going.

I'm still barely digging into the Forever book lol.

Thanks Anthony.  Yeah I'm liking this program.  I was doing it  2 days on / 1 day off but my body is not recovering well enough from that so I'm switching to every other day off.  I'll try this for a while but might switch over to 1000% Awesome if I'm still feeling overtrained at the end of this cycle.

Thanks for helping with my questions on IG.

I really like the FSL set up so Im going to read more of that and see about using that for my leaders.

That might change seeing as there are so many templates in the book lol. I love It though.

Yeah like I mentioned on IG no worries on the questions.  The book has a lot of info but could be organized a little better.  An index would really help so you could look up things like 5x5/3/1 etc.  I've picked up a lot of explanations off of his private forum over the past couple of years so that helps some.

The main thing he was trying to do with that new book was teach people how to program for themselves using his philosophies.  He provides a lot of programs so people can get examples from them and adapt them for their own needs.

If you find something you like, like the FSL then I'd definitely include them in whatever you do.  In my mind if I find something that works I try to stick with it if possible.

Forgot to post but I did bench yesterday.  Blah.  Triples through 265, then some slingshot shenanigans to 325.  Then tricep pressdowns for 5 sets.

Deadlifts today and my lower back still feels fucked.  Triples through 405 and a bunch of singles at 455 and 475.
