Men & Women from Planet Iron

Here’re two shots of my first wife and the bike I rode for years.  (It was a rocket!)  I’ve smudged her face for privacy. Summer ’91.IMG_0598 (2)On man or woman, there’s nothing better than chiseled abs.  Her best lifts with no special training or periodization were bench 200 (in a T-shirt, no bench shirt, of course!), squat 315X5, dead 330.  She had talent.IMG_0599 (2)Yeah, a long time ago. Now I’m handicapped and old… but still fighting.  Today doing twisting hanging leg raises for the first time on this segment of the mesocycle – in the past I’ve done 25X20.IMG_0581crop
