Martins BBQ is the place we like in Nashville. Went to two different locations there. They opened one in Louisville a few months ago too!! :yum:


#42

Dead lifts!


#43

Any of you gym rats have a hex bar? Seems like a space economical thing for the home gym.


#44

nope
but i’ve wanted to get one for a while.

to answer you question on the dip station and pull up bar

do it.

i bought this one:


#45

That looks fairly sweet, Balvert. I was thinking of getting these. Lebert Equalizers. Fairly versatile.


#46

jesus h. christ.


#47

I’d probably just be doing dips on that thing, tho. The occasional Romanian pull up. Maybe work my way up to that legless Hindu pushup (probably not).

Unrelated to upper body, I did do a pistol squat holding a 35lb kettle bell, but then noticed some lower back pain.

Gotta keep moving…


#48

i like to do sumo squats…good straight posture and all that …and i tweaked my back

i try to do 60 lbs and i do one rep for each pound bar i grab…i over did it to say the least…just stooopid

will be sticking to 45 from here on out and then do heavier sumo squats and less rep

I am currently running 30-40 miles a week. Best I have felt in a long time physically and mentally. It is a wonderful thing for me and love being outside in all weather.


#50

That’s around the mileage my husband does. Do you have any plans to run a half or full marathon?


#51

I ran a half on September 2nd in Nashville Tennessee, and have another in November. I am trying to run one half marathoon every other month to keep a goal on the horizon. I have a couple of running buddies that are keeping me anchored into a routine which helps keep my miles consistent.


#52

That is excellent! Sounds like you have a great routine. I’m signing up my husband for the Seattle Marathon in October.


#53

I fucking hate running!!!


#54

Sounds like you shouldn’t run then.


#55

I do admire hose that can run

I hike :slight_smile:


#56

I love a good hike. :slight_smile:


#57

Sumo squats seem like the perfect “gimme a hernia pose.”

I’m not saying they aren’t effective.

I know I sound unfun and utilitarian, but running always seems like too much of a time investment. If you want the results of a lower resting heart rate, larger VO capacity, etc, there are much quicker, efficient ways to do it.

I completely understand the meditative, nature-merging aspect of running and why it’s appealing tho.

What is your resting heart rate, Grim?


#58

check out the amazing game of squash.

being serious!


#59

I thought it was called The Wild World of Squash?


#60

If I were to go ultra-Honky with a sport, I’d probably go with ultimate frisbee. Seems like a cardio enhancer.
