Recon, that sounds like some cool training (reffering to the bar walk, reminds of walking lunges from football, everybody would lunge across the gym a bunch of times carrying 45lb plates,,,the next day you'd see a bunch of us lineman walking around school rubbing our sore asses) I went to South Africa too Tabletop mountain = the shit, I love that country. and also I'm double majoring at Warren Wilson College one of those majors being Outdoor Leadership (a lot of outward bounds stuff) some people from the program go into what sounds like the kind of program you work in. Anyways, I saw you said you work with a foam roller 30 minutes. I've always seen those things and been interested in them but assumed they were for sexy female pilates instructors. anyways, what does it do and how do you learn to use em. I once did this thing were you step on and roll your foot over a tennis or lacrosse ball for 30 seconds and it was part of a stratching routine....kinda sounds similar

foam rolling is very similar to that, but instead of just your foot you can do most of your body, youtube it. i work at a program right outside of asheville. might be the same place i work

ha no way, I think my friend Alex Segal (big tall, short black hair, linebacker) went to your "camp" or whatever. He's doin good now, I think goin to Hocking College. come to think of it he said he just woke up one day with an ex-marine standing over him, haha sounds like you!? I think my old neighbor Deric Rivera (asian kid) went to the same one...havn't seen him in years though

Been in South America (all over) for about two weeks now. I am currently in Argentina. This place is awesome. I've gotten in about 6 solid gym sessions, playing more footy than i thought possible, and lots of drinking with classes in between.

PRs lately

RDL-405x5

OH Squat-235x3 -slightly over BW, been a goal for a while

Bench-225x10x10 volume PR, was challenged, couldn't not take it. That was 7 days ago, my chest is still destroyed, sticking with low reps...

DL, did 455 2x a minute for 15 minutes

My conditioning is much better from all the footy and hiking I have been doing. Surprised I have been able to lift as often as I have, but the beef down here is so good it makes me lift more!

Even with more conditioning I still am an abominable footballer.

Hit a rep PR on oly squats today, 315x12. Pretty brutal set, last 4 reps were real grinders. There is a novice strongman show in the town I will be staying in two weeks. Going to get in touch with the gym running it and see what the deal is. Would be cool to compete.

Weight is right around 215, has been sitting there for a while. With hiking/soccer and lifting I am staying very active. Only problem has been sleeping, there is so much stuff to do down here that sleep is last on my priorities.

Weighted dips- 2x10 with 135 lbs

Chins- 2x5 + 70 lbs and three singles with 90 lbs

Hit 255x1 OH squat as well as a 330 (i think, mightve been 325, the KG plates mess my numbers up) clean

top sets as of late

bench-315x2x6 rep pr

350x2 - rep pr

ass to grass squats-395x3x8 - absolutely brutal, my leg started to really hurt and swell after the 2nd set, barely got the last few on the third, skipped the 4th, leg is still hurting, guess i need to keep it easy on squats
