Power Friday

Went to the new club this morning.  It actually used to belong to our old gym, but we didn't go there much because it didn't open until 7am.

Was pleasantly surprised to see they basically gutted the place and put in all brand new equipment.  It's very spacious, with nice high (30 ft?) ceilings and a crap ton of equipment and plates.

FOUR power cages.  :D :D :D :D

Took me 5 minutes flat to get there and almost 10 to get home.  Not bad.

I doubt I will be going back to the other club ever again.

Had a great DL session, and got my 515.  Tried 525 and it wasn't even close.  Got it about 3 inches off the floor and bailed. Still very happy.  Progression sets were rather beastly too.

Happy Friday, kids.  :D

Thanks guys.

I am really feeling fricking great these days.

Took some progress pics last night but I ain't gonna post them. Camera is broken so my stepson took them with my cell and they're kinda crappy.

Suffice it to say that I am looking thick, tight, solid.   ;D :D :)

Might step out of the office and go grab a new digital camera today and take some pics this weekend.

I shall photoshop the face of someone much more aesthetic, like KrohDaddy, over my own so as not to offend anyone with my grotesque facial features.

Chest & Biceps

Quick & Dirty Holiday workout.

Right shoulder was squawking a bit, but it didn't hold me back at all.  Left shoulder felt fine.  Had a great session, and even though I didn't hit any new ground on the incline bench press the working sets were the best they've been in a while.

I guess it helps that I had a hot chick spotting me on every set; seems to make me stronger.  ;)
