3 weeks post #carpaltunnelsurgery & continuing with my #GPP block. Hands are feeling much better & hope to get back to some pressing movements next week. Worked up to 405x8 at #rpe 8.5-9 plus a couple of drop sets at 385x8. #barbellmedicine #usapl #deadlift #powerlifting
#whiskywednesday been searching for this @elijahcraig #barrelproof #bourbon for a while & finally found it while out of town on business. Now to get this home safely & enjoy it! #bourbonporn #bourbonwhiskey #bourbonhunting #bourbongram #bourbonenthusiast #bourboncollection
2 weeks post #carpaltunnelsurgery & back into my next training block. Hands are still a little sore but grip is getting better each day. Anyway, what am I gonna do, not train?
🔹
#GPP block in effect so that means high reps & extra volume to lay the foundation for this training block.
🔹
Worked up to 385x8@8.5-9, then 355x8 for 2 sets. Tunes provides by #wutangclan #enterthe36chambers

7 days post #carpaltunnelsurgery & getting back into my training courtesy of the #barbellmedicine team. Not able to do any #benchpress or other #strictpress movements yet but managed to get some #deadlifting in (with straps). Worked up to 345x8 before some additional sets at 315. Usually don’t do #touchngo reps but hex plates are the worst! #powerlifting #apemanstrong #unite #usapl
Taking a couple new additions to the #bourboncollection for a spin tonight. A 3 year old @willettdistillery #ryewhiskey & a 125 proof @1792bourbon #fullproof bourbon.  Just what the doctored ordered after surgery the other day. #norlanglass #barbellmedicine #bourbon #bourbonporn #bourbongram
#carpaltunnelsurgery was a success yesterday. Doc said both hands were very tight so I should significant relief once healed. Now to recover ASAP & get back to training. #barbellmedicine #usapl #carpaltunnel #powerlifting
Well, yesterday’s #usapl didn’t quite go as planned for me yesterday. The meet was well run, ran smoothly & judging was tough all day. Shout out to the spotters, judges & volunteers for a great meet!
🔹
In short, went 4/9, missing all 3 of my #benchpress attempts along with my 3rd attempts on my #squat & #deadlift. 🔹
All I can do is learn from this & continue improving my strength & technique. On to the next one! Big thanks to my wife & parents for coming out & cheering me on all day! You rock!

My Reebok lifters have finally been retired (straps ripped) after 3 years of heavy use (4 sessions/week...around 600 sessions). Trying to decide which pair of @adidas lifting shoes to replace them with #powerlift3 aka darth vadars or #powerperfect2 aka stormtroopers. 🤔 #decisionsdecisions #firstworldproblems #barbellmedicine #powerlifting #usapl #adidas #adidasweightlifting #undertrained

🔹 Mountain Goat 🐐 🔹 Wolverine
🔹 Bighorn Sheep 🐑 🔹 Grizzly Bear 🐻

Hard to believe a week has gone by already since our last hike in @glaciernps. Celebrated our last hike with a little bourbon & vodka. Already missing the views but looking forward to getting home to my wife & dogs. #flashbackfriday #loganpass #hikemoreworryless #bourbon #jimbeam #wildgooseisland #stmarylake
Great start to the week here in Cali... ▪️Inspirational quote at my hotel ▪️Caught up on work with some nitro cold brew coffee by channeling my inner @jordan_barbellmedicine ▪️Didn’t die squatting after a week of hiking up at Glacier National Park. Somehow managed to hit 435@8-8.5 (1st vid is of 425, forgot to record 435), 405x4@9, then 3 sets of 375x4. ▪️After working with Barbell Medicine for the past 2.5 years I was finally able to train along side @leah_barbellmedicine and pick her brain on all things training, programming, etc. The content the Barbell Medicine is putting out lately has been phenomenal & only expect it to get better. If you’re in need of coaching, programming, nutrition, etc I’d check them out. They are the best in the biz IMO. ▪️Crushed some serious Poke bowls afterwards.

Too tired for a long post so here are some more #waterfalls in #glaciernationalpark with my better half from today. We also saw a moose from half mile away (last pic). Thankfully it didn’t go all #MooseMode on us & attack us for no reason. #Whew
🔹
As much as I love hiking I miss #squatting #benching & #deadlifting. This cardio nonsense is overrated.

Day 4 = Prepare for the unexpected or as my Mom once said “hope for the best but prepare for the worst.” Weather in @glaciernps can often be sporadic & unpredictable so it’s important to prepare for those moments #justincase the worst happens. 🔹
Today’s hike up Grinnell Glacier Trail was a perfect example of that. Sunny & high 50s to start the hike; half way - overcast skies, low 50s; Trail end - dark skies, temperature plunged to high 30s & we were hit with snow & sleet which eventually turned to rain for the remainder of our hike.
🔹
Many folks along the trail had no water, no waterproof gear, cold weather gear, etc. which really makes you question their life choices. Don’t be one of those people that gets caught unprepared then the rangers & first responders have to come & save your dumbass for not taking the hike seriously. #rantover 🔹
Grinnell Glacier Trail
▪️Distance - 11.4 miles
▪️Elevation gain - Approx 2000ft (high point 5,500 ft)
▪️Hiking time - 5.5-6 hrs
🔹
Wildlife sightings included grizzly & black bears, mule deer, friendly chipmunks & a big ass moose that we apparently missed earlier in the day. 🔹

Day 2 = Great success! Drove over to Two Medicine Lake area to do the Rockwell Falls Trail. TLC once said #dontgochasingwaterfalls but they obviously haven’t been to #GNP before. 🔹
▪️Distance - 6.8 miles
▪️Elevation gain - Approx 400 ft (high point 5,500 ft)
▪️Hiking time - Approx 4 hours
🔹
No major wildlife seen today but the views along the trail were unreal. Enjoy!

Post hike rehydration stop with the family including all the whiskeys & vodkas. The spirits were fantastic & the staff very knowledgeable & friendly. The #BadRock Cask Strength was my favorite. Worth a stop if you’re in the area! #drinkglacier #glacierdistilling #allthedrinks #hydrationstation #bourbonporn #whiskeyporn #whiskeybar #wildturkeys
Solid first day in @glaciernps despite the forest fires still keeping part of the park near Lake McDonald closed for safety reasons. You can see the fires in a couple of the pics from the Lookout. 
Apgar Lookout Trail
🔹 Distance - 7.2 miles
🔹 Elevation gain - 1,856 ft (high point 5,236 ft)
🔹 Hiking time - 4 hrs & about 40 min

A little more challenging of a hike than we wanted to do the first day, but what were we gonna do, not hike? Even managed to spot a deer on the trail which was kinda cool. 
Very proud of my wife, @kjerszy23, for taking on today head on despite NEVER doing anything like this before.
