    After watching the clip Urban post, I was really motivated to get up and do another workout after a took a quick nap. I did my normal weightlifting routine, but was just amazed by that clip, and REALLY wanted to give the dumbbell shot put a try. I set up a mini circuit, swithing every station after a new song came on (using a ZST soundtrack I made :p) Did Jump Rope,Dumbbell Shot Put,Combo on Heavy Bag,Shadow boxing, for the stations. It went very well, and I enjoyed it alot, but staying on topic...it was the dumbbell shot put I enjoyed the most! It was just so fun hurling a dumbbell across the yard, even though I was veyr tired. Just watching it fly through the air was motivating enough for me to pick up another one, lol. I used a set of 10's, 12's and one 40 pounder. Didnt get the 40 pounder too far, but man it was fun trying! What I want to know is, what is this working? I think I am going to use this as just something fun too do, while getting a decent workout.

    NO faygot, that was a fairly advanced athlete, and you have no business doing it.

    You probably shouldn't be working on it especially if you don't know what it is helping you with.

    It was a PR, though, so I have mixed feelings. Shame and pride.

    Hey thanks! Now we're even for your endorsement of repping to failure. I cried for two days.

    A PR on weight, obviously. I think pretty much everyone sets their PR for cats-killed with sledgehammer conditioning. I know I do.

    How do you make a cat sound like a dog? Soak it in lighter fluid, throw a lit match at it and...

    "WOOOOF"!!!

    Recipe for disaster.
