I agree :)

Nice farmers and farmers holds - what's your PR for holding the 120s?

there is the old JP and the new JP, the all time PB must be a minute or so, who knows. Have held 160s for close to 30 seconds - grip used to be ok, but since the injury its all starting from a clean table mate. It is now weak, very weak...

I wish i could get back to this strength it would do as the first goal...

Whoa.

I must have ate some dodgy seitan if I log onto VF and read about JP whining about missing a Yoga class.

Damnit, no more wanky food for me after 6PM.

Wee bit of cardio, 17 mins on cross trainer, pressing (up to 3x3x60) and rehab/shoulder stuff.

now rest and feeding till sundays big session - cant wait!
