* Bench press, 195lb/88kg 5/3/5/5/5. Getting to my limit here unless I start eating a lot more. If only there was a way to guarantee that 100% of excess calories would be converted to muscle and not fat.
* Pendlay row, 190lb/86kg 5x5.
* Dips, bodyweight + 25lb/11kg. 0/0/2. Triceps were smoked from the bench press.
* Lying triceps extensions, 91lb/41kg, 2x8. Working back up after a deload. Also approaching my limit here.
Total tonnage, including warmups, was 23,472lb/10.647kg. Not bad.
In the "opposite direction" department, I bought a Beeman QB78S, CO2 airgun for $60 . Walmart is selling CO2 cartridges for $16 for 40. The gun is lightweight, and in the shooting lingo, it's a tack driver. I put a spare scope on it that was from an old airsoft gun and shot about 150 rounds down in my basement. At 10 yards it shoots better than I do. So now I have a Gamo break barrel that is a combination air rifle and exercise machine that's accurate if you feed it right, and a magic wand that politely coughs and holes appear where you point.

Utah air guns is down the street from me and everything there costs $1,000. It's like what happened to bicycles. There's also a slingshot scene now where custom builds with exotic materials cost $400.

We haven't met in person, so I foolishly associate your avatar picture with your appearance. Anyway, that is an impressive amount of weight you are slinging around, about 50% more than what I lift. My focus is more working my core and staying toned so I can still fit in all my suits.
