Oh.....I was thinking in C (cause -4C isn't too bad!).


yah, that's why I was wondering. -4 C, not TOOOO bad. for ice climbing, mean, where you already assume 's gonna be cold. -4 F is decidedly really fucking cold though.

Yeah, -4F is about my limit for what I'll willingly go out at climb in during the day.

-4 C is not too bad. If it was sunny I would still boulder in those temps.

Winters where I grew up in NoUT would regularly get down to well below Zero F. Funny thing is that the stupid clammy, wet cold in Greyhio, which I don't think has ever gotten below the teens since I've live here, feels colder than stuff in Yewtaw.

The weather up in hyalite. It's been around or below zero for the past three days.

Gud day yesterday. Went over to our gym's v14 cockroach's garage, where he was all psyched that his gf had gotten him the Beastmaker 2000 for Christmas Hanukkah. I call it the Beastmaster instead, because THIS IS AWESOME.



Anyway, it's the Rolls Royce of hangboreds, definitely. The wood texture is super easy on the skin, and surprisingly high friction. I usually have to chalk every two reps, but I was able to do full seven rep sets on slimpers and slopers without every having to chalk, and this was on a day that was SUPER muggy for January. Our other fiernd did blow a flapper open, and the beastmaker owner banzed him from the board, he was so freaked out about ruining its texture with blood.

So, killer board sesh, was pleased to see how my Endurance was shaping up in relation to the cockroach's (I still can't touch him on pure strength, obviously, and don't really want to).

Went on to our friendly neighborhood bar for delayed burfday celebrations. It's literally 30 seconds form our back door, but we only make it there maybe twice a year, which is a good thing. We karaoked the night away, bunch of climbing and swingity swing fiernds showed up. We lit off fireworks in the parking lot on our way back home. Was pretty restrained actually.

that is awl.

Word. The WY/MT/ID borderlands have long been the coldest area in the lower 48.

I got my hands on the beastmaker 1000 a while ago but left it with Nathan in favor of the premounted old skool Nicros one he brought into the relationship (which I think is the same one that Manderson has in his rock prodigy workout).

No more star ratings, unfortunately. Someone (cough cough) exiled the thread into the Shitbox.

Even though we awl noes it's CI's fault, I blame it on that stupid green jacket that smells like lysol... and teh dislussions ov grandor that goes with it.

Course, I'm more upset by teh few moments I wasted won staring that are nau worthless and resulted in me being GU'd by teh dawg.

Don't worry, GU happens even to the best, and you aren't one.

Huh? Must have lost sunthin in teh translation.... Did ewe just call me fat?

If the glove fits.... when everything else doesn't... my clipbored says tis true.

I seem to be having trouble with teh google russian translator....

Did ewe just ask me to pull yore hair and bite yore ass?

You could try, but I don't think you are in good enough shape for the task.

Besides, I am still so upset about Troll dumping me, you could be in more danger than you realize. Everyone knows I am lethal when mad.

WOHOOO!!!!!1

I'm in.....

and knot to worry, I has teh experience with wimin, that wunts to kill me.

Yeah, but you'll probably ferget all about it by the next time you never come to visit the Red River rest area...

He came in at 15 or 30 in his group. Even taking both men's group at the same time he came in ~30 of 60. Considering he's never done a comp like this before he actually did not too bad IMO.

We are looking for Top 10 this leg.

already passed our hight for today, temps are just going to keep dropping.

So I signed up for this running clinic this weekend. The hope is to make running less hateful for me because it's an excellent way to keep off weight. Ran Thurs and Sat, tonight will be the first time out when it's actually kinda cold. I'm running 10min and walking 1min for 5km so we'll see how much more hateful the cold weather makes it for me.

Was talking about this the other day after teh dribble went and ran on the eliptical at the university. I have always really hated running, mostly because the jarring hurts my knees. A long time ago I liked hiking, would occasionally hike 35+ miles in a day, but I've never ran more than probably 2.5 miles at a time. Anyho, elipticals sound kind of cool for getting cardio without the jarring. Or, cycling. Yeah.

I've been considering checking out the campus gym's options for legless cardio machines.

Do i know this V14 cockroach? The board looks pretty awesome.

I am progressing well on hngbored, ithink. Not subtracting any waight on the one hold where I started with -20lb, and up to 15 lb added on all holds, except the mini-jug, on which I am up to 20lb.

There are a bunch of people who want to get hangbored with me, but on a sporadic basis, as in, once every couple weeks. I am happy that I have company, bc it is a bitch to do alone, and it works out so i have company for 2/3 hangbored workouts. But the difference is pretty clear. I am 20 lbs up from where I started, and they are still falling off the same holds they started on, with no weight.

I actually stooped to using CHALK now... yes, it is true... These last couple days were so warm and humid, and I could tell the difference on small crimpers for sure.

Can't wait until the gym finishes the remodeling and moves the hangboards and systems/campus walls up in a separate training corner, away from the pathway to the bathroom, where every visiting gumbie with greasy pizza fingers wants to come and crank a few pullups on jugs. I wouldn't mind THAT, bc I don't use the jugs, but then they admiringly touch every other hold on the hangbored and smear the pizza grease on them, too.

Cockroach is Aaron, a med student here. Not exactly a cockroach, since he's i his early 20s, but is most definitely a double-digit mutant. Super gneiss guy, too.

And yeah, the key to improving on the hangbored is just consistency, like you said. That's part of the reason that I feel even the folks that want to do like 1 brief 20 minute sesh once a week after climbing, just won't see that many gains.

On the chawk thingie, think of it like this: use of chalk in climbing can be a personal stylistic choice. But, the whole purpose of hangboreding is to build forearm and finger strength as quickly and efficiently as possible. So, if you are able to do 15 lbs without chalk, that probably means that you could do 20 lbs with chalk, thus making more gains. So, it is just silly not to use it. The end goal is ALWAYS to make yourself fall off from muscle failure, not from slipping.

Can't wait until the gym finishes the remodeling and moves the hangboards and systems/campus walls up in a separate training corner, away from the pathway to the bathroom, where every visiting gumbie with greasy pizza fingers wants to come and crank a few pullups on jugs. I wouldn't mind THAT, bc I don't use the jugs, but then they admiringly touch every other hold on the hangbored and smear the pizza grease on them, too.

Cockroach is Aaron, a med student here. Not exactly a cockroach, since he's i his early 20s, but is most definitely a double-digit mutant. Super gneiss guy, too.

And yeah, the key to improving on the hangbored is just consistency, like you said. That's part of the reason that I feel even the folks that want to do like 1 brief 20 minute sesh once a week after climbing, just won't see that many gains.

On the chawk thingie, think of it like this: use of chalk in climbing can be a personal stylistic choice. But, the whole purpose of hangboreding is to build forearm and finger strength as quickly and efficiently as possible. So, if you are able to do 15 lbs without chalk, that probably means that you could do 20 lbs with chalk, thus making more gains. So, it is just silly not to use it. The end goal is ALWAYS to make yourself fall off from muscle failure, not from slipping.

So here's a questoin: at what point does a guys stop being a cockroach? In your early 20s most guys are still ragging pretty okay with testosterone and while their healing powers aren't quite that of Wolverene anymore, they still seem to heal damn quick.

Gud day yesterday. Went over to our gym's v14 cockroach's garage, where he was all psyched that his gf had gotten him the Beastmaker 2000 for Christmas Hanukkah. I call it the Beastmaster instead, because THIS IS AWESOME.

[image]http://collider.com/wp-content/uploads/marc-singer-beastmaster.jpg[/image]

Anyway, it's the Rolls Royce of hangboreds, definitely. The wood texture is super easy on the skin, and surprisingly high friction. I usually have to chalk every two reps, but I was able to do full seven rep sets on slimpers and slopers without every having to chalk, and this was on a day that was SUPER muggy for January. Our other fiernd did blow a flapper open, and the beastmaker owner banzed him from the board, he was so freaked out about ruining its texture with blood.

So, killer board sesh, was pleased to see how my Endurance was shaping up in relation to the cockroach's (I still can't touch him on pure strength, obviously, and don't really want to).

Went on to our friendly neighborhood bar for delayed burfday celebrations. It's literally 30 seconds form our back door, but we only make it there maybe twice a year, which is a good thing. We karaoked the night away, bunch of climbing and swingity swing fiernds showed up. We lit off fireworks in the parking lot on our way back home. Was pretty restrained actually.

that is awl.

Do i know this V14 cockroach? The board looks pretty awesome.

I am progressing well on hngbored, ithink. Not subtracting any waight on the one hold where I started with -20lb, and up to 15 lb added on all holds, except the mini-jug, on which I am up to 20lb.

There are a bunch of people who want to get hangbored with me, but on a sporadic basis, as in, once every couple weeks. I am happy that I have company, bc it is a bitch to do alone, and it works out so i have company for 2/3 hangbored workouts. But the difference is pretty clear. I am 20 lbs up from where I started, and they are still falling off the same holds they started on, with no weight.

Pretty easy. They are cockroaches until Jack says they aren't.

Znupe! Those awesome Szechuan peanuts you got me have another cool use. There're always crumbs of the pepper bits in the bottom of the bag, and I've started using them as seasoning for other stuff. Pretty rad.

That is awl.

not that rad, actually.

sounds pretty rad.

already passed our hight for today, temps are just going to keep dropping.

So I signed up for this running clinic this weekend. The hope is to make running less hateful for me because it's an excellent way to keep off weight. Ran Thurs and Sat, tonight will be the first time out when it's actually kinda cold. I'm running 10min and walking 1min for 5km so we'll see how much more hateful the cold weather makes it for me.

Was talking about this the other day after teh dribble went and ran on the eliptical at the university. I have always really hated running, mostly because the jarring hurts my knees. A long time ago I liked hiking, would occasionally hike 35+ miles in a day, but I've never ran more than probably 2.5 miles at a time. Anyho, elipticals sound kind of cool for getting cardio without the jarring. Or, cycling. Yeah.

I've been considering checking out the campus gym's options for legless cardio machines.
I just purchased a feet-only elliptical, that has stretch bands for your arms and can slide under the couch. Should come today.

I really dislike ellipticals. The movement on them doesn't feel right.

I think this one is a stepper with some twisty motion? I'm taking advantage of my free month of amazon prime that I got with the new kindle fire, so it's free shipping both ways...I'll put it together, fall off of it a few times, and send it back if it's weird.

I agree, the full size ones are weird.
