Deadlift Transmutation with VIDEO
Actually did this Tuesday. Been pretty busy with work, school, and being awesome, so Im just getting to it now, but that's how it goes sometimes. I squatted first, as I didn't get to the gym at all this past weekend. Normally that wouldn't happen, but I need to get some reps in the suit. Ill talk more about it after the training stuff.
Jumped on the scale. Bodyweight was 302.1

Ab Work 3x10
Seems like a ton of work, and it was, especially considering that it was 1130 or so at night before I got started. Was almost 2am when I got finished. Pretty sure that that fact was the issue with my squats, as I was shaking like Micheal J Fox on a meth bender. Once I broke my hips I was fine, but the unrack was just the opposite of how it should be. Soft and unstable. Im not sure I like the Jack briefs yet either. for them to fit in the hips and legs like I want them too they have to be smaller, and that smallness carries up through the top of the briefs. They're tight enough around my midsection and I have a hard time pushing out into my belt. My suit is the exact opposite. I am going to have to get it taken in a half inch or so on each side to get it to fit like I want. I absolutely love the suit though. The rebound is ridiculous. Interested to see how it turns out come meet time. Just over 8 weeks out now.
