Notice the low squat position, with proper lumber extension.

Oscar, you could get one of those of your own. They're heaps of fun. Most of the time.

we don't have the yard for a boxer and my significant other prefers the pugs.
So, eventually we'll work something out.
Thanks for the optimism!

Sure. They're not as cute as dogs, but you can teach them to do more complicated tricks. Eventually (oh, maybe 20-30 years) you can even teach some of them to communicate with you. But then (and this should really seal the deal) many times they will eventually present you with GRANDCHILDREN, which are the best invention yet.

These kids seem to have a bit of talent, if I do say so myself:

Saw this on Matt Kroc's log over at elitefts and thought it was too ridiculous not to share.

Squats - 5 sets of 20 reps @ 415lbs.

The f... @ 5 x 20 x 415 lbs.

Anyway.. so, today is the day. I'm pulling 200 kg. For some reason, the smooth, even number is scaring me. It is daunting. I even slept badly and I'm pretty sure I dreamt of deadlifting and it went bad or something. I don't remember the details of the dream, but I'm sure I had it. I'm sure you guys know the feeling.

Meh. To hell with it. I'm a motherloving viking and I will destroy it.

EDIT:

I read KPj's "Thoughts on personal training" and read that he had had a hamstring tear, something related with deadlifts. If someone like KPj tore a hamstring pulling weights around the same weight I'm about to pull, it makes it that more daunting. But I know that if I let this affect me, I will have a mental barrier that will possibly be harder to get over than a physical.

ate like a king this weekend:
Friday night: Country style rips, fajitas, dinsaur ribs (beef ribs with tons of meat on it)
Saturday: Breakfast tacos of sausage, pepper bacon, onions and jalepenos, brunch caldo, lunch chicken and sausage. Mid day snack, we cooked a whole pig. Ate on it until dinner - rib-eyes, sausage, potatos and cabbage. No plates were used. Everything was eaten on a tortilla except the caldo.

Everything was cooked on an open fire. I still smell like mesquite smoke.
