Day 14 - Boris In Chains



It's been years since I've dragged the chains out and put them on a barbell. One set of chains add about 40lbs at the top and, with the connector chain, de-load completely at the bottom. The nice thing about chains is that they force you to tighten up at the top (where a lot of people tend to be a little loose when using lighter weights) and, unlike bands, don't lock you into a particular groove.

I felt like I should add something for the chains, but I don't want anyone thinking I'm nickle and diming my way to a million. So, for calculating volume, I've decided to count it as 20lbs/set of chains.

14, 520lbs on the day. 152,455lbs so far.

Chains are a good look for you! Keep going strong my friend.

Very impressive and admirable effort! I'm pretty sure no one in Squat Rx Land would accuse you of nickle and diming your way to a million lbs. Stay strong, and take care of that low back.

Hungry yet??

Thanks Boris!

Thanks Sam. Will do - it'd be pretty silly to hurt myself and not be able to continue.

ddn,
Hungry? Well, I have actually gained some weight - I don't know if that's the squatting or all those Girl Scout cookies!!!
