It's been a while...

Since I've posted anything here. Been training, not regularly unfortunately, but I'm determined to get better about tracking my training here.

The year has started out pretty well. Been working a lot, but have also been planning on competing in some strongman competitions (training plan compliments of my lovely wife). Considered doing this meet:

But it's the weekend after GDC, and the weights are a bit intimidating. We found this one, but it's in York, PA, in June:

The travel might be a bit much, but we may turn it into a "visit friends and family" trip the week after. Anyhow, I have something to train for. Training has been sporadic, but here's a few videos from the past few weeks before jumping into tonight's training:

First Stone training session of 2012. Was supposed to be 12 reps (4 x 3) but my bicep got blowed up on set 3 (Set 1 not video'd):


First training session with the new Swiss bar! I'm using it for a Simulated Log Press. It's a bit difficult to get used to:
