    Starting Strength

    Squat 3x5x330 felt clean. Must mean that the next workout will suck extra bad.

    Bench 3x5x210

    DeadLift 395×3 Started the 4th pull and almost broke my back. Definitely a technique issue. Need to reset.

    Forgot to do chinups. Oops

    Dear Holly and Jessie,

    Please have Stephen document your equivalent positions. Undoubtedly, they will serve as motivation during the challenges ahead in 2011.

    My goal is simple – 2 photos capturing arms fully extended overhead, back to wall, no grimace (remember, suffer in silence people). With this seemingly simple accomplishment, overhead strength and mental toughness will be dramatically enriched!!!

    While age is always a variable for consideration, I do not believe it is a limiting factor at this point for this goal. I challenge all ages to adopt my goal for 2011. Some are already there (Stephen, you bastard!) others have work to do (you 14 year olds know who you are). Let’s have a gallery of photos on the new website extolling the functional flexibility of our members!!

    2011 is going to be an incredible year!!!!

    See you on the new site,
