225 x 2 OHP, Slow Cooker, Karwoski Wisdom, Prepare To Lift Heavy and Compression Straps

November 4, 2012 — Leave a comment

Squatting was pretty horrible this week, but I hit a 225lbs x 2 OHP! (video).

Maybe I'll try for 3 reps next week.

Also, figured out how to minimize cooking odors in the home by putting the slow cooker in the garage.

Anyways, check this out (especially the Karwoski video!):

Ever since I started taking strength training seriously, I was bitten by the Iron Bug. Then it burrowed under my skin and laid eggs in my heart. Now those eggs are hatching and I... the feeling is indescribable.
