awesome leg session man! that chinese girl is on some strong shit hahaha!
Thanks Tunen! I was reasonably happy with them but I felt I could have been doing 4-5 reps with it until I got into the hole. Need to do more back squats and some posterior chain work.
Prince vegeta: thanks dude. I'm sitting here watching the 58kg womens lifting and just being blown away by these girls. Their first attempts are my max!! I'd love to see what they squat! It would have to be better than triple bodyweight and would smoke most of us here.
^^ Nah no screaming. Bit of red face action. Went back to the same gym again this evening and the manager was commenting on how low and heavy I was squatting. Made me feel pretty good.
So upper body today.
DB Bench press
55kg (was the weight I was told but hard to tell as wasn't marked like the others)
140kg (too much really, the rollers weren't well oiled)
10x whatever weight the stack really represents
15kgx8 (well I think it was 15kg....)
tkD: I think it is one thing to have the comments, it is another thing to get them when you weren't expecting them. I think that it was a genuine comment that was meant to be a segue into what I do and the like.
Skeptic: I have seen some on SBS in the late evening. Apparently I missed the 56kg mens but caught the 58kg womens last night. I couldn't link in the youtube video of the Chinese girl that blitzed because the IOC has removed it from the site :angrydude:
^^ I can handle being beaten by a girl; as long as I get to shoot :carduindisguise
I forgot to mention that I weighed myself at the gym last night. I was 92kg, so actually 91kg in my barebones, meaning I'm over 200lbs. I looked at myself in the mirror last night and realised that I was retaining a lot of water for some strange reason. I think I need to start a mild cut to loose about 3% bodyfat. That should bring me back down to low teens were I look better but still can handle job/stress/travel etc.
Considering I haven't kept a food log in years I might do that just out of interest.
^^ LoL My partner hasn't really noticed a difference, but I have. I do seem to fluctuate in the water retention stuff for some reason which I can't see a cause for.
But being over 200lbs just doesn't feel right for me so I'll see if I can't drop a few % (winter weight :angrydude:) and then see how I go.
Training tonight so I feel the need to do snatches. Although I don't really want to disslocate my elbow (read: tear apart brutally) like that 77kg lifter!!
