Dragged 100lb sled up and down street to neighbors amusement

I am always on the fence with the GM's as a ME Movement. When i am reading about them or thinking about implementing them it always seems like a great idea. But when i actually do them i dont feel i get much out of them or feel they will benefit me so much. Guess i will leave them in, this morning my lower back is a bit fried so something worked. I went with 315 which is sub-PR and i will PR this next time around (in 2 weeks). The SG DL's were actually easier than i had anticipated, i probably should have gone higher in the poundages but for intensity purposes i didnt. Definitely like the way these hit the upper back....well the rest was ho-hum, finally got the sled out, i have to start doing these at an earlier hour as the sound of this sucker going across the pavement is pretty hard on the ears.....On a side note, NERB was pretty awesome, some some strong guys, Brian Siders had a phenomenal day and posted a huge total followed closely by one of my favorite SHW's Donnie Thompson, from what i hear Thompson has been injured as of late so it was nice to see him still hit it and post huge, he came in second to Siders. We had some pretty sweet seats, we were in the front row center and literally 4-5 feet away from the action. We were so close that we smelled a fart that i suspect Ed Coan let fly but looked around to try and pass the blame....Good times, Good Times....

It had to have been Coan. That thing made it's rounds thru the first row and man was that rank ...You forgot to mention that we got spit upon by brian siders during his first squat attempt. I think he was aiming for Coan but overshot and landed that sucker right at our feet.

Come on Chris. He's a brother in iron. Plus, you damn-well know that his last Deadlift PR was done wearing those snakeskin cowboy boots.
