Finally Trained

This morning I climbed out of bed and went to my gym for training.  The weights were the coldest I ever remember them being, but I did it. To ensure I would lift, I intentionally took it easy:

Goblet Squats: 5 x BW, 16k, 24k, 32k
Kettlebell Squats: 5 x 16k's, 16k's, 16k's, 16k's
Romanian Deadlifts: 5 x 95, 165, 165, 165
Turkish Get Ups: 1/1 x 16k, 16k, 16k, 16k
Renegade Rows: 5/5 x 16k's, 16k's, 16k's, 16k's
One Arm Press: 5/5 x 16k, 16k, 16k, 16k

I'll worry about adding weight and sets next time. For now I am happy to get back in a groove.


The GripFAQ.com updates are going very well. Since my last entry I have:

1. Converted the website to run on the .NET 2.0 framework
2. Standardized how lists are displayed across the website in all entries
3. Added pictures to all but 5 entries
4. Added around a half dozen new entries, mostly under supporting grip
5. Revised language and spacing in a few existing entries
6. Updated the admin tool to display nicely in Firefox and tested it as fully compatible
7. Sorted through the videos I took last weekend, paring them down to the ones that are worth posting

Now that I am back at work, progress will slow considerably, but I am happy with what was achieved over my vacation. The site has given me the momentum needed to get up to speed on .NET 2.0, which is something that has been in my queue for about a year.
