    Better contact Mercury to verify the labmax results. Need someone straight from their factory to help you out

    Weight today was 228lbs :eek::eek::eek:

    Five minute cardio warm-up
    High bar high box squats 365 3x5
    Bench press 275 3x8
    Weighted chin ups +25 3x10
    Hammer curls 3x10
    Twenty minutes of stationary bicycle

    Everything is feeling good. Squat and bench felt fast and easy. The weighted chin ups were a little hard though. When I started my squats I realized one of my knee sleeves was missing. Luckily I asked some guys I knew and one of them had found it in the parking lot and had put it in his truck.

    I freaked when opened my bag and only found one. I squatted without them and was hoping they were in my other car. My bag was still a little disorganized, so I'm thinking it just fell out. Those guys I know that do strongman were out in the parking lot pulling their truck when I got there so I asked if they'd seen it and luckily they found it by the door and hung on to it.

    Yeah, bench and squat have been feeling great. Of course the weight is still pretty low, but still. Deadlift it's hard to say having just switched back to conventional. I'd have to dig up some old training logs to see where I was at my best with it. Same with strict press as I haven't done it much until recently. I expect to be able to progress quickly on both for awhile at least.

    Thats always a great feeling when you drop something out of your bag and get it back. Ive done it too many times to count.

    I left my belt a couple weeks ago, same guy found it and hung into it for me. I tend to leave my bag unzipped with everything all tossed about inside, I need to work on that.

    With the cost of gear it'd be rough to lose something for real.

    I did the same thing, got to the gym and my belt was nowhere to be found. Luckily for me my buddy works there, so when i told him i left my belt there the day before , he said " oh shit i found it and was gonna claim it as my own". What a relief.
    Lifts are looking good brother , and BTW you guys are right, when you drive your classic muscle car to the gym it most definantly increases your lifts by a minimum of 10% 69 camaro here!!

    I go to the only gym in town and I'd recognize my gear if anyone attempted that at least.

    Awesome car, too. I love the older Camaros. 63 Nova SS here.

    Not to turn this into a car thread, but my uncle has had an old 69 camaro in his drive way for damn near 10 years. Needs a lot of work and he's done none. Everytime I go home I try to get him to sell it to me, but no luck. Im not even a "car" guy, but I want that one.

    Yeah he figured if no one claimed it he'd keep it. We get a lot of tourists pass through so i think he was hoping one of them left it.
    63 Nova SS... NICE !!!!! I bet like me you cant even put gas without at least one person coming up to talk about your car. Its cool and all but overwhelming at times cause i am not a show off kinda guy, i just like the car.

    No rules here, feel free to talk about cars. Shame to just leave one like that sitting around though, although I've got several collecting rust myself. I don't currently have the time, money or knowledge to do much with them.

    Yeah, same for me. I don't drive it a whole lot, but it gets looks and people wanting to talk about it everywhere when I do. It's a blast to drive though.

    I learned a little from my dad. Wish I would've learned more when he was around, but I was busy being a stupid teenager and later a stupid twenty something. I can diagnose a lot of problems and swap parts, but complete restoration is beyond my current skill level for sure.

    My father's a mechanic so I've been working on cars with him all my life. He had me doing oil changes at 7yo lol. So many lessons learned and memories made underneath a car in my history.

    Mine was a welder, but cars were his hobby. I got a very fast gas powered go cart for Christmas when I was four. He welded on pedal extensions so I could actually reach them. Needless to say I could drive at a very young age. I just wish I'd learned more, he got a 70 El Camino when I was a teen and wanted me to fix it with him so I could drive it. We never did because I was too busy.

    Speaking of cars and getting gas, you guys with Kroger stores nearby taking full advantage of the fuel discount points?

    2016-01-31 16.40.07.png

    Tonight was the cheapest we'd ever gotten it. Full dollar off filled up both vehicles for $16. Should've brought the can as you're allowed 35 gallons on discount.

    With eating tons of food it's no problem hitting 1000 points regularly to get the full dollar off. Plus doing the surveys gives you points and gift cards are usually 2x or 4x fuel points. Good to stock up for Christmas or birthdays, I even get the eBay cards if I'm planning on buying something on there. Worthwhile to take advantage of for sure.
