Great workout there Tim. Those squats are looking great. i cant wait to see the vid too
Rageking: Well it is under cover so not directly getting rained on, just that wind driven misty spray and the wetness on the ground. But the cold is getting to me. I bought athletic compressive pants and top that are meant to keep the muscles and connective tissues warm so that you have less injury problems in winter training, they work but they don't cover your hands and head.
El Freako: I don't know that there is anything you can't do in a home gym, within reason of course. Barbell, adjustable bench and power rack and you can do most things that any other gym has.
Tunen: This should have been the video post :angrydude: For some reason my work internet connection doesn't like uploading to Youtube. I've got the video all set to upload but it will have to wait until this evening to be put up.
tkD: Meh, I'm not overly impressed with my front squats. Don't get me wrong I've come a long way in the past couple of years: from not being able to bend my knee to ATG squats with this sort of weight; but it still feels as though I could/should be better.
Big_guns_lance: I'm hoping to have a 140kg front squat soonish, sooner than my work connection will allow a video posting at least.
Achilles: Great to be back!
Ok watch this space. I should be able to use the internet connection at home to upload the video, unlike this stupid work one (who'd have thought they only want it used for work?!). Should have just done it last night while I was making it.
yeah nice video man, those chins looked great, and front squats too, awesome form on those front squats and with some heavy ass weight too
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
El Freako: The setup is rather bulky but it is better than training in a gym where they don't like weightlifting, deadlifts and hard work!
Lance: I like the vids just to see where I'm at form wise but they are a real hassle to make, especially in winter.
Bulkboy: You would be surprised at how much I was struggling to keep my squat form together! But I have to strengthen and grow my hammys so it'll keep being an issue. At least I'm fixing those weak points so my squat will improve long term.
tkD: Glad you liked it. The first version I lost as windows movie maker crashed as I was saving!
Rageking: Pfft! I'm getting a training dress as we speak! Seriously though I hate training aids that are designed to make things easier; like gloves, straps, wraps, belts, etc.
Skeptic: Thanks dude. I think as long as you work on adding weight and doing some sort of double progression that it won't take to long to achieve!
Well I've trained a couple of times since I last posted here; and they all sucked. Just to give you an idea I'll post last nights suckiest of sucky workouts that ever sucked.
80kg fail (remember that last week I did this for reps for multi sets and was going to add 5kg this week)
80kg (fucked the jerk big time)
At this point I just thought fuck it I'll do some squats.
Shitty workout! It was a good day for it too, best day for training in 2 weeks, and likely to be the last decent training day for another week!
