Gotta love those box jumps! Good sessions Tim, I love this log because I always learn new exercises coolsanta
Prizefighter: Signup for the NSCA free newsletter. It occassionally has some new exercises or interesting stuff. Although read carefully in some of their articles. They have had a couple recently that are just plain wrong (mainly because the author is full of shit not the NSCA's fault).
Samoan: You cold start off with a low box or even just agility ladders. Although you are about equal to 2xMe so it might be a bit hard on your joints. It's one of the reasons why I don't want to be huge, all the BBers lose a heap of weight once they retire, they get that you can't be huge all of your life. Although you Samoan guys manage it!
Trained upper body last night and woke up this morning with a few aches and pains. An old shoulder seperation spot is a little tetchy again for some reason (didn't do anything to it). So I'll probably give the weights a miss tonight, which makes this the last session I'll do until after Xmas. Couple of weeks off and I should be rarring to go again in the new year.
Thanks to everyone who has stopped by this year and read about what I do. Hopefully you've picked something up, gotten a bit clued into my mindset, enjoyed some of the music, and that you've been encouraged to lift stronger and smarter. Hope everyone is still out there lifting with me in the new year!

PV: thanks dude but read the story below......
Samoan: Good luck with the squatting!!! I'm away from home so I won't be squatting, in fact read below, I may not be lifting for awhile longer than anticipated.
Well I'm on holidays and we were taking the dog for a walk this morning. We went to a park that had a sprint track marked out on it. So I felt the urge to do some sprints. The first one was a short 60m sprint and my pace was slow. The second one was going to be the full 100m and done flat out.......
That was until about 50-55m in where I tore my left hammy and then on the next pace tore the right. I can't really sit or stand properly now. Kinda lame. In hindsight I should have warmed up more, but hindsight is known for it's 20/20ness. So given the level of pain and general discomfort I'm guessing that I'll be ok for most activities in a week or two but my poundages will take a hammering and I'll need to be careful not to re-tear them by trying too hard too quickly.
And no Ben it was not because I'm old!!!
Well maybe a little.
^^ Tore as in tear (in the past tense).
I'd say a grade 1.2 hammy tear for the left, right is less but hard to say. Basically as I hit full speed I really felt as if I was running quickly (up until that point I felt like I was lumbering, not the powerfull gliding you get when you are at top speed) and then felt the twang in the muscle belly. So it is the muscle itself not the tendon sheath, nor the insertion or origin.
Either way I'm imagining about a week till I'll be moving freely, 2 weeks till activity can resume and probably a month till weights.
Samoan: Hmmm I need to do some reading about casein. Thanks bro!
El Freako: Old and stupid. You're a few years off of it.
Lionheart: They are getting better. I'm a way off from actually training hammys yet. Probably another week.

Well Guys, WELCOME TO THE NEW YEAR. A new year means new programs and better results than last year. Hope you all had a good break. I haven't lifted in 3 weeks and I'm raring to go on the first day of the year.
