Yes I know I'm pale, always have been, always will be.
what can i say about your session, looks great like always and you look good man, like an olympic lifter champ :D
keep up the good work tim
El Freako: I like tight tights They are the most comfy thing I have squatted in. Plus they keep the muscles warm and stop the lactate build up.
Essensen: I just make sure I warmup enough when I'm training on colder days. Plus those "tights" are actually good for promoting muscle warmth while wicking sweat. I know the cold does have an effect but it is about training long term.
BGL: I try not to shit on my legs Seriously though I lost the photos off my camera (battery went flat and lost a whole heap of stuff, including Dad's 60th photos). I can take some more at some stage, there are more on my Facebook.
tkD: :coolguy: I'm probably about 100kg off the pace of an Olympic lifter in each of the lifts. Hell the little Chinese girls out lift me. I'm hoping to get just a bit leaner by summer and figure out my water/salt intake so that I stop retaining water on some days.
^^ Yeh we had a work function for two guys, one had been with the dept for 40 years, so had to celebrate. I did a light session last night which I hadn't planned on doing, mainly because the weather was so nice outside.
Pullups (did these because I was standing around waiting for the dog to bring the ball back while playing fetch)
Military press (did these to free up the shoulders a bit)
BB row (did these to get the contraction in the middle and lower traps and hold it)
Some shoulder mobility work, and later on I did some massage on myself with a tennis ball.
^^ thanks big fella. Massages are good and I need to have them more often.
Just finished training. Reasonably happy with the session, managed a PB on the chinups. Did a fair bit of warmups for the shoulders to make sure everything is okay, as they have been sore again.

Skeptic: I think you just notice it more in a female fronted band because the girl has to have a different look, being a girl. The guitarist has that "pissed off don't mess with me" rock attitude while the lyrics are about respect for nature.
SamoanZ: Hope it has a happy ending
Ok rack deadlifts again today. Took them down 2" but wasn't able to keep the weight up to last weeks mark. Bit disappointed even though I anihilated my previous best at this pin height. Oh and added 5kg to my snatch grip dead PB.

SamoanZ: Yeh I wasn't feeling as fresh this week and I've got aching muscles today, unlike last time. Also getting a spot on squats and deads =
Skeptic: I'm sorry but you are trying to say those lyrics are more cheesy than the "hardcore" world of death metal? Lyrics about cannibalisation, etc, is pretty lame; it's all about the shock value. Anyway any cheese that Epica has is negated by how hot Simone Simons is!
