Just got these off eBay - stunningly beautiful boots, but unfortunately I can't get them on. They are marked size 43. They are in excellent condition - no scuffs that I can see, and they were sold as having been worn 3-4 times. Ideally, I would love to trade these for any of the following: The same boot in a 44 or 45. White or light grey CCP Tornados in CCP 9. The Layer-O red ankle boots in 44. However, that is probably unlikely, so I'll also sell them for $1075 shipped...
Hey guys, Anyone happen to know where I might find these in a 44?: http://www.daad-dantone.com/online-shop/Layer-0-Shoes/Shoes-6213 Or, white CCP tornados in a CCP 9. Would be super jazzed by either.
On a somewhat related note, is there ever any chance of black on black 301s again? The 9301s (if that's the correct number) are my favorite black jeans ever, but I got too fat for my pair. Constantly saddened by the sight of them in my closet.
You're a monster man - crazy seeing all that #battleofthe220s stuff on IG. Total inspiration.On that note, I want to see my abs for the first time ever, and get as close as possible toSquat - 500Bench - 400Deadlift - 600Ideally, while weighing close enough to 198 to try competing there.
I've never done a real peak, but I think it takes some getting used to the heavier weights before you get whatever performance you have "in you". Earlier this summer, I was doing a ton of volume on bench, and was stuck at 340 for like six months, despite rep gains at lower percentages. Took a month or so and worked in more paused reps, and heavy doubles, and hit a fairly easy 365.
They're not really that rare - most sizes pop up fairly frequently if you check all the usual suspects (the two SFs, eBay, and most importantly, SZ). I've got two pairs, both of which I paid in the vicinity of $1k for, which I think is pretty fair. You'll see closer to $1500, but I'm fairly skeptical of that, unless they're pristine/a really nice example.
My family is moving to NYC for a year, so I'm watching the house with a few friends - this is the gym we set up in a two car garage. Squat rack, adjustable bench, ~500lbs of bumper plates, and a DIY platform. We also built a tremendously fun 9 foot tall pullup bar out of 4x4 cedar which is chilling in the backyard. Given my super-beta willpower and inability to cut, I decided to dreamer bulk to 225 first Currently like 215, and I overhead pressed 225 today, so I...
Haha, I own those, and I've always wondered if they actually made a full run of them, or I'd just ended up with a bizarre one off. That said, my non-fashion Dallas friends and family are quite amused by them.
Seriously - the CCP greys and whites are gorgeous, and there are about a billion pairs of black tornadoes out there. Just buy those, then buy a black pair later. I'd have bought those, but my black 8s are already a bit snug, and those apparently run tight.On a related note, if anyone wants to sell me grey or white tornadoes in 9, hit me up.
After being stuck at 195 on press for some embarrassing amount of time (like 18 months), I went 200, 205, 210 tonight (hitting a BW press finally at 205). Felt like a god. As for bench assistance work, I'm sure it's not the most efficient way to improve, but I've always wanted to do a planche, and so I've started doing a bunch of gymnastic style handstand work. Besides being a ton of fun, I'm definitely seeing carryover to my presses. In addition to my above PR, I also...
