Battling Ropes of Death


Great workout tonight. Did some rowing, squatting, shrugging, etc. and finished with the battling ropes of death. I have gained back about 20 of the 48lbs that I lost and am feeling pretty good. The shoulder is coming along and I am happy at this weight. Gaining another 30 pounds on top of this is probably something that I won’t be doing. I’ll see how I feel as I progress but I feel very good being lighter. My natural adult weight is only about 165 at an even six feet tall and my wrists are only slightly bigger than six and a half inches. Carrying an extra 65 pounds around for all those years probably led to some additional wear and tear on my body and would continue to do so if I gained it all back. We’ll see what happens…

Anyway, here is a clip of the battling ropes from tonight. And also the aftermath.

And the aftermath… Unfortunately we didn’t capture the main blast on film, but the end was still entertaining.

    Haha. He loved it. And so did I. Brian hit the bowl and so did Kyles brother Jeff after you guys left. Good times.

    And I’m sure you appreciate the fact that NWA is playing in this clip.
