    Hi friend Jerry. Yes, going into winter. Hardly any rain, which the Climate Scientists predicted was going to happen. I know the former guy said that climate change is a hoax, but no one out of America believes a word he says.

    Nice work. How to you like the trap bar DL. I've used it and do find you can use more legs if you want to.

    How to you like the trap bar DL.
    Hi Jerry. I quite like it. You can grip the bar without alternating grip, which is bad for you, or fiddling with straps. It's good to not have to guide the bar around knees. And, as you say, it's easy to set your back angle how you like, to emphasize legs or back. I am setting myself to get both involved.

    Sorry to hear about the wrist, but glad you were able to get your workout in. I hope it's just a minor strain.
