This rock was somewhere north of 300 pounds. I chuckled because I mentioned in passing what I thought the weight was to Carrie and she at first thought that I had said “it’s over 800 pounds.” LOL.
Even though I think my face looks relatively relaxed in this picture, the lift was not comfortable. Partly due to the weight of the rock, some of it due to the shape of the rock, but mostly due to the unstable footing I did the lift on. This is a case of the rock looking bigger up close than in a picture. It was pointed in the back section and jutted into my southy bits. But the grip was too good to pass up the way I held it, so I didn’t turn it around and lift it the other way.
I dusted off my official USAWA 2″ vbar yesterday and Josie got jealous watching me do a workout in the garage. So I put a tiny weight on her practice 2″ vbar (same 18″ length as the USAWA version) and she had fun “making fun of daddy” – which roughly means mimicking what I did in my workout.
