A Visit to USC Headquarters

As if swinging and snatching kettlebells all day long in NYC wasn't enough for me, stopped off to see Zach on the way home. Finally!

As we walked in the door, it screamed Zach! And I had to start playing with stuff immeadiately. It's like being a kid at a new playground, even if the equipment is similar, it's still different.

I was hoping his stone was a weight I could attempt, but with my last attempt at a 120lb stone only getting to my lap, I knew I shouldn't even touch the 250lb beast, that was staring at me. I was intrigued by the old school dumbbells. That 150lb one-arm deadlift was crazy, it wanted to roll right into my fingers tips as soon as it left the floor!

Next time I'll give the tire flipping a shot!

Sweet! I love that old DB! I've been looking around for that kind of stuff and it's hard to come by. Z's gym looks cool. It's not to far away from you is it?

It's a little over an hour and a hlaf, so certainly not an everyday trip.

He gets some crazy stuff in the oddest of places, but it's usually all really cool.
