    We merged with the local Bartlett office in West Chester. I am running Preservation Tree as a division of Bartlett as of June 1st. Made the decision last Christmas with the family. Spending more time with my kids was a priority for me. Working seven days a week not so much. Really happy with how things have worked out.

    Did the heavy fran again today. Took me 14.30. Felt much better then the last time. Maybe because i dident climb that much today. Did some hedges... did extra toas to bar after the fran 15-12-9. Good to look at what i have done from here. Should get a diari for my training sessions again.

    Sorry for the delay in reply. When you were training for powerlifting and strongman you were much stronger than I am currently. You probably required a more diverse stimulus per lift in order to make progress. I myself am still at the point where a lot of volume on my main lifts with a few accessories thrown in is working well...

    And a TON of food!

    I'm trying to squat 330lbsx3 today as my peak set... Then bench, barbell rows, miscellaneous back work.

    What's cardio?

    What do most of you do for cardio? Mark plays hockey, that should do it (or do you do some extra?) What do the others do? Running, play ball, walk their dog?

    Sprints are the best cardio to me , especially on a airdyne wind type bike . I could ride a bike or jog for long time without getting much results . Do some flat out sprints and see how you feel afterward , its taxing .

    I think any of these workouts that guys post that are more of the metabolic conditioning should suffice
