I don't follow the Outlaw Way (I would if I could), but I've done a few of the workouts when I can, and they're bone crushing. The bearded wizard is creating beasts.
So what kind of Godly feats are we talking? From the females, we're seeing things like 53 unbroken pull ups, an 838m row in 3 minutes, 290# 5RM deadlift. Amazeballs.
And, let's go ahead and follow that up with some of my
epic puny numbers.
60 min of spin
100 "Curtis P" for time at 55% body weight (40 min cap)
No dropping the bar above the waist
But I almost did.
60 min spin +
3x15 elevated dips
I had some make up Wendler work to do, so I doubled up my bench and my press. I would never recommend doing this. The two movements are both too similar, and they will take away from each other. But, for the sake of time and following training (and since these lifts are so weak sauce for me anyways), I didn't worry about it too much.
Warm up: 45x8
Work sets: 65x5, 75x5, 95x10
Warm up: 45x8
Work sets: 55x5, 65x5, 70x11
And then, for shits and giggles, I put 100 pounds on the bar and pressed it out twice. New PR!
Dips on a bench, feet elevated, 3 sets of 15.
Let's talk about how much fun I had last night in the food department!
Thanks to this awesome app on the iPhone called Scout Mod (a little like Groupon and Living Social), we got 50% off at Noodle and The Chocolate Bar last night.
Here's a few photos of the feasting.

The most mammoth slice of red velvet cake at The Chocolate Bar. Don't worry, the husband may have had a bite or too, I'm not that selfish. Maybe.
We scooped up a few of these nuggets to take home. Truffles may or may not be the key to my heart.
Got home just in time to catch the tail end of Day 1 of the Outlaw Open. In my polka dot pajamas. So hardcore.
Today I'm on the prowl today to find a dress to match these sassy little heels for our Christmas Ball this weekend. Yeah, procrastinate much?
Do you bring home leftovers? How do you use them?
I love putting them in wraps or in omelets.
Last night's Thai Beef salad, wrapped up in a low carb tortilla.
Do you prefer cake or pie?
I am so torn. If that pie has a lot of crust, I really like that. I am in love with doughy things, like cinnamon rolls made in the waffle iron.
Oh yes, that just happened.
