So many fun lifting implements available to play with at the beach. After the SLIPS I warmed up with a variety of rock throws to warm up my shoulders and hips. Performed some driftwood Sots press and overhead squats as well as some single arm log presses and twists. Then I did some log over-the-shoulder cleans. Though it had been raining when I left home, the sun was now out and Tower beach was the busiest I’ve ever seen it. I had to search around for a bit to find a log heavy enough for the 5 rep clean & jerk that no one was sitting on. Along the way I ran into Alison & Davin and their new baby. All three looking healthy and happy!
The log wasn’t especially heavy but was certainly enough to get my heart rate elevated for reps of five. A couple young guys passing by saw me lifting and wanted to test the weight. The log looked slender enough but after deadlifting it 6 inches from the beach, they determined it was heavy enough and went on their way.
Equipment: heavy to medium heavy implement to lift
