Great deads and bench work Timbo, and one other thing...
^^ Hmmm don't know about that. Can't have people getting penis envy.
Don't know how much weight I'll be lifting tomorrow, been drinking since lunch time. AFL grand final today and friends birthday party. We had alcoholic slushies and beer :linedrunk::linedrunk::linedrunk:
Without your sexiness I am nothing :DOriginally Posted by Pickle
Yeh I've got to start doing some cardio, get rid of some of the stress (it's leading to the depression) and look at cleaning up my diet a bit. But given diastolic is fine it really is down to lifestyle factors, that and the gram a day coke habit
Pickle: Don't worry dude, I'd never touch anything illegal.
Skeptic: Sex, drugs, lead guitar!!!! I rewrote that to Sex, weights, lead guitar.
PrinceVegeta: Hangover didn't last as long as the lethargy, but I got it done today.
Ok so after I put my fist through my computer in frustration with the paper I'm writing I decided it was time to lift some weights. It was either that or go Michael Douglas in Falling Down.
I Want Breakfast
Donkey calf raise single leg
55kg x10 +10 with both legs
55kg x10 +10 with both legs
100kg x2 (after power clean to shoulder)
130kg x5 (had 8 but lacked intenstinal fortitude)
130kg x5 (ditto)
130kg x5 (this was on the limit)
Standing calf raise
130kg x8 toes in x8 toes out
130kg x8 toes out x8 toes in
Happy with the squats aside from the lack of intenstinal fortitude to finish the sets off. Hang snatches are now approaching what I previously snatched from the floor.
Soundtrack: Stabbing Westward - Save Yourself
Pickle: I know, I'm a pussy :crymeariver:
Skeptic: Not another book idea I'll add it to my list.
Ok was a bit time poor yesterday evening and I had a friends dog that wanted to see what I was doing everytime I started an exercise. So didn't do everything I would normally.
40kg (all easy and equal PB of weightxreps)
OH Tricep ext
BB bicep curl
Philo: yep I'm only a week or two away from a PB and tying half BW around my waist for reps.
Pickle: they aren't the typical lateral raises. I do them in the scapular plane (from the leg instead of from the front) and only go half to 2/3 of the way up. That way it minimises the traps involvement and doesn't put too much stress on the joint. Of course I'm only doing it to fix up an imbalance.
Hypo: thanks dude, and yes the Pumpkins do rock!
Big_guns_lance: thanks dude. I was surprised I could curl anything after the chins!
Ok last nights workout was the Usain Bolt PB workout.
Last night I did rack deadlifts from just above the knee for the first time in over 3 years. The last time I did them my knee was au naturelle' and I was ~83kg and had been training them for 12 weeks. Last night at 88kg I blitzed my previous best by 46kg without training for it.
Snatch grip deadlift from the floor (first time I have ever done these)
150kg x2 PB (this doesn't mean much as a PB but still felt easy)
207.5kg x2 (easy as so went to....)
257.5kg x1 PB
I possible could have had a second rep. I was actually running out of plates as I had been using a loading pin on each side from 177.5kg upwards. I don't know if I could actually add more weight to the bar without extra loading pins or more olympic sized plates.
DB Calf raise
Standing calf raise (held contraction)
95kg x 15
