I had a sick workout on Saturday. I always thought when espn had those lumberjack comps that those guys where fit.
Since it was the first nice weather in a while, my wife and I decided to clean up the yard etc. It's a decent size project we have about 2.5 acres 1/2 of which is woods.
I thought great I'll sneak in a workout that a misses on my versaclimber. I threw on one of my 32lb weighted vests on from smartvest and went to it.
after about an hour, I had noticed serveral decent size pines that were rotted and needed to come down.
My wife wanted me to use a chain saw, I said I want a workout, I'm using an axe. I told her the insurance is paid up don't worry.
I had to take down 4 medium size pines about a foot to 2 feet in diameter while i wore 32lbs on uneven surface etc.
Man what a work out! I love chopping. the tree wereabout 30 to 40 ft tall and then they would get hung up on other trees and I had to deadlift off so they would drop.
I have a new found respect for manual laborers especially lumberjacks.
I knew a guy years ago that use it hit a truck tire with a 15 sledge hammer at different angles and he was just jacked.
What's old is new. I guess.
All the best. Dr. Evil
