I must be doing it wrong. Especially with it so hot outside, before I start lifting I do 5-10 min warmup, most of which is biking/jogging to the gym. Get the gym, do 1-3 minutes of warmup, start warming up for the big lift of the day -- either squat or deadlift. That's it.

Technically, all told that would be 22 sets. Then I stretched for about 20 minutes since my legs are still fucking sore. And this didn't even include my rehab/stability work...

I don't think anyone could do it seriously just for the...

You know you don't have to 100% cardio just to finish a tough mudder. I'm training for summer triathlons, and I've cut back the lifting but I'm not going cold turkey. ...
The Madison is a little boxy for me too. I was hoping to get a Fitz, but I have a pretty athletic build and the pants ended up being too tight around the thighs. A shame.

Quote: Originally Posted by pebblegrain I like the cage just fine, but how do you dump it if you are stuck at the bottom? wouldnt it fall in your lap? Am I just overthinking all this?

The only failsafe I can think of is if you have dumbbells, there is no you you can dump those without pushing them away from you Yeah, you're over...
I squat with rubber plates, not a cage. So when I have to dump I just release the bar backwards and jump/hop forward. Never had a problem with it.
