    Thank you sir. Now I feel compelled to enlighten the others on what the Summer of Chudd is all about. So everyone knows Mark Henry right? The only man to Squat and Deadlift over 900lbs in a drug tested Meet and literally one of the strongest humans ever. Well, its in his genes. And I like to use the Henry family as inspiration. From Wikipedia:

    Henry comes from a family in which almost all of the men are larger than average, especially his great uncle Chudd, who was 6 ft 7 in, weighed approximately 500 lb, never had a pair of manufactured shoes, and was known as the strongest man in the Piney Woods of East Texas.

    I just had ice cream. #Chudd

    We are the physical and intellectual heirs of Chudd. Just need to add several hundred pounds to each of our lifts, and bodyweight.

    5/6/16

    Squat: 275x5x2
    Press: 145x5x2

    Man what an awful workout. Lots of factors contributed to this which I do not feel like listing or boring anyone with. Did the absolute minimum and got the hell out. Should get some good rest this weekend, have a lighter work week next week, and begin Texas Method and the Summer of Chudd. That is all.

    5/9/16

    Squat: 275x5x3
    Bench: 195x5x3
    DL: 295x5

    Still not recovered from the Meet. I realized I probably should have started a little lighter in Squat. By the time DL rolled around I didn't have much in me. Oh well. Wednesday is recovery day so hopefully I'll finally be ready for a normal workout Friday. We'll see

    Squat: 325x5

    Bench: 225x5
    PC: 135x3

    Squats felt good. Strong and smooth.
    Bench was easy.
    PC also felt good. First time doing cleans in a long time. Hope the elbows hold up this time around. Would like to get my clean up over 200 this summer. My pathetic best was 167x3 a while back

    Volume Day is going to be rough. Made it through fine today but when things get a bit heavier it will get interesting for sure. I'm probably going to have to schedule in naps on Mondays
