  1. I can play this week. But we might also need to table the game until next week. I sort of expect RG to shut down the forum, or limit who can post on Thursday and Friday (due to the exams), and that tends to carry into Monday morning of the following week too. So maybe we wait until next week to play, maybe try to recruit some of the noobs that start showing up? @Dothracki won't be the FNG in a week

  9. I recently resumed volunteering at the local animal shelter after they started reopening following covid lockdown! I began weightlifting in June 2020 and I think I'm slowly getting okay at it (I think...?) My best friend finally bit the bullet and instead of waiting for their 'official' wedding day, went to town hall and got married after I kept badgering her and her wedding date got moved three times. Slowly understanding more of this new government job and have already proved myself to being awesome. Undergraded, but going to use that to my advantage and attempt some lower-g

  14. Yay! We did push presses last night! A very weird rep set (8, 8, 6, 4, 4, 2, 2) every 2 min. Accidentally did a strict press halfway through my set of 6 for bar + 35lbs and thoroughly confused myself. Was chasing Lindsey the whole time (we had to share a rack and I was getting frustrated I had to keep rearranging the weights. Finally got to 95lbs push press! The weight management was horrible (we had 3x10lb on each side with mini weights). I think this is a PR, but I'm super happy I was able to hit it for the 2 rep. Def think I could have done a couple more...but then we had to do rowi

  17. Hey, I did an AMRAP workout today! I set the time to 30 min, and did the following circuit with 1 min. rest in between circuits: 30 sec elbow plank, 10 sets of right hip dips, 10 sets of left hip dips, 10 spiderman jumps/each side, 10 hands to forearms planks, and forearm plank to max (I typically ramped up from 1:15 to 2 min). But it was at home? It was a pretty good workout, but whatever I did yesterday tired me out more.

  18. I emailed NCEES about this and just got a response. They were already planning on two rooms, and have opened up a third room. They're trying to get some people to cancel because they're a few people over the allowance. They're hoping to get a few people to cancel and said it's unlikely that they'll have to cancel registrations involuntarily.

  20. *cries all alone in the thread because everyone else triggered chatt* Last night was front squat! I'm slowly starting to like the movement, not that I've done it more than twice and I've figured out where to put my hands. Didn't match weights with the other girl, but I did get to around 45kg total weight front squat. Again, slow and steady. I did want to die on the goblet squat work we were doing. Not sure, but I think I was just doing them too fast, which was unnecessary. A new trainer started last night, and he has a B-name too. Bryce. Blake. Bruce. Whhhhyyyyyy? I am hop

  23. I was actually collecting names to try and run something when I read this. I'm cool with waiting. Not sure if we should run my crazy idea with new people though. I'd say that we keep it simple.

  24. Did Friday and Saturday workout (yay) and planning on not missing and MWFSat workouts until the end of the month, because I paid for them! Friday was Zercher squats, which I'd never done before. Got to around 10kg each side (so total of 35kg lift, I think)? I believe I could have gone heavier, but it was also my first time doing the movement, so I wanted to err on the side of caution. My inner elbow did hurt a bunch right after, but I think that's just because of how this squat is. Saturday was more bench press, but we were doing not normal reps. I know there is a specific term

  32. The PA board told me that a few years ago, I hope it’s true. I will follow up with them to confirm. looking at the reciprocity rules, it seems like you could be right. That would suck for me.

  33. i call bs on the south central IL area listing of 3 inches. it would take the threat of 6+ inches. A part of the school is major rural and the township responsible for plowing only has 1 guy 1 truck. If they can't get the farmer kids in safely they cancel for everyone, even if in town is plowed and driveable. But really I don't see there ever being another snow day ever now with remote learning options in place.

  34. we had an entire wall in the kitchen that had layers of wallpaper...people obsessed with ivy vines and/or fruit. I think we counted 4-5 different types.

  35. I hated the front squat when we first were introdcued to them, but now I dig them - on a heavy one a few weeks ago I was able to learn the importance of elbows up, as the weight slowly, then quickly rolled down my arms and too the floor Hope they do add some extra spots for you general gym related : we changed gyms and the programming is just a tad different, im either going too heavy or too light on stuff, be glad when I can get it dialed back in...
