New Deadlift Best

Well hello, hello!

Worked on some renovations at team llama bash gym today in my backyard. Started putting up a gate to the park next door for easy access to the black top. Last time I did yoke i loaded 800lbs of weights onto a golf cart and drove 1/4 miles to to the park and then all the way back. I mean its awesome doing all that, but I decided it would be nicer to only have to walk 30 feet instead. First time doing Yoke in about 6 months. First time Matt and Greg ever tried the Yoke. Needless to say everyone's backs were feeling like got trampled by water buffalos in the Serengeti (are there water buffalos there? Did I spell that right?) Awesome day though, I'm planning on making myself a new dragging sled and filling up my kegs with sand and cement before the week is over.

Without further ado!

Ok, so I left my groceries at steph's so my diet is a little sub par. I'm working on it.
