She'll probably be blasting out sets of 10 with 225 by the time this is over.

Not quite....but I could not believe her squat raw strength. Granted her form was not good. This was only like the 4th time she squatted in her life. I told her not to go over 85lbs...but like most kids, she did not listen!

She showed me the vid when I got home. I told her.....OK.....now back the weight down and lets start working on form! I also ordered her a pair of Adidas Power perfect shoes for stability.

This was her squat vid

Below that is a quick snap she shared with me. I wish I had her front squat mobility!

As we speak I am shopping for some bumper plates and will pick her up a good oly bar. I am going to get some ropes for the gym and ordering a landmine attachment. My amazon cart is going to be full by the time this virus stuff is over!

Quick back story: I’ve had a beard since the day I became a civilian again, as I had been a 2x/day shaver in the Army for years and it felt great to not have to shave anymore. It’s been 6 years since I’ve seen the skin on my chin, and I’ve promised at least a dozen people that I’d never be without a beard again.

Which brings me to my quarantine surprise. I was trimming my beard, which I’ve done a thousand times, and my lady friend bumped my elbow while trying to sneak between me and the bathroom door. It chopped through an important stretch of beard that left no saving. Long story short, here’s what I discovered after I got done cussing and finished the beard removal.

1.) I have a strong chin.
2.) I have a strong chin under that chin as well.
3.) My stubble is a lot grayer than I thought it would be.
4.) A fu-man-chu is awesome and if I didn’t have two fucking chins, I’d rock it.
5.) Genetics are a bitch. I’m not high body fat, (not low either, maybe 18%),but my throat/chin/under-my-tongue area is just prone to doubling up. I see it in my dad, and in my skinny brother. I see it in my nephews. Genetics. And some fat.

tl;dr
Beards are better.

Prior to Corona lock down, we did not often get a lot of sit down dinners with everyone there (besides holidays). Someone is always at something...and as a family of 4 with kids in activities, things are always on the go.

Anway...have gotten to enjoy 'family' dinner almost nightly now. My kids are always fans of steaks. So 6lbs of ribeyes for 4 people sounded about perfect!

We are a 'rare' family in more than one way ;)

Thinking "social distancing" is taken to extremes by your neighbors, CFM.
