Daily "Selfie":


My Pudzianowski Poland T-shirt.  POLISH POWER!!! Maruisz Pudzianowski is one of my favorite professional strongmen.  Nike elbow sleeves used to protect my shins during deadlifts. And, apparently at the time, no shoes.

Back felt terrible after 2nd set on Block Pulls.  I pushed my way through the rest of the workout, but I don't know if that was a good idea.  I will be hitting the chiropractor tomorrow and maybe a massage next week.
