    Of course, I can scarcely hit an L-sit for 10 seconds, and would likely fall off the Rings and crotch myself on a balance beam.

    They just weren't used to pushing themselves as hard as I pushed them. As one of them put it later: "Before, I used to think I was working out hard when I'd feel a good pump going and had a good sweat. Now I know that I really worked a set hard when I'm laying on the floor gasping for air." The workout itself involved 20-rep squats, loading my 175lb keg onto and off of the back of a pickup tailgate, sandbag cleans, sandbag shoulders, pushing my car, and overhead lunges with kettlebells for distance.

    That, my friend, sounds like an awesome workout. Ouch. :)

    It sucked, but it was fun. I was doing it right alongside them and it was brutally tough.

    So KOTO -- you're a strongman competitor. I'm curious as to what you like to do (in addition to your keg/sandbag workouts) for training?

    And when can I see you in one of those "World's Strongest Man Competitions" on ESPN2? :)

    I'm creating a new routine today as we speak, I'll probably share it later on. This has my old one: http://www.bullshido.net/forums/show...light=dinosaur

    This basically gives me an idea of what I want to do. I often mix things up though, doing workouts similar to the one above or just switching things up (doing Zercher deadlifts instead of regular deadlifts, Jefferson lift squats instead of regular squats, etc.). I've actually strayed a lot from that routine, adding in and removing a bunch of other things. I edited some of it today but it's still a lot different now.

I remember this kid with spinobifida who was confined to a wheelchair in the 6th grade who busted out about 20 chin ups for the fitness test we had one day when the rest of us sixth graders were lucky if we could even do one.

    But you have said in the past that you were bottom heavy so....I am skeptical of this claim.
    175 and don't be jealous =-)

    Hoping to get my cushioning up to 220 over the next two years. I'll have to sacrifice having a noticeable neck as well as being able to walk though most doorways, but as they say... no pain, no gain.
