your weights look older then you. 29 bc? good session snatchy i like ur floor presses fuckin impressive
Natzo: Yes I do have a big butt, means I have no hammys as a result.
Anabolicus: I'm reasonably happy with the floor presses. Next week I'll start with pin presses from the bottom.
Kai: Thanks dude. I'm hoping that they have added some strength that will bust out a PR.
Pickle: They aren't that old those weights. They'd be 5yrs old, but they have a bit of mud on them from the last C&J session.
Jono: I sure do look sexy in my shitty old track pants.
Trained last night but was interrupted. I blame that for the fail.
ATG Back squat
Move new bed, new side board, and new TV stand. Lift and carry from front curb into house.
High box squat
180kg xfail - first time I've failed on a squat in many years.
Standing calf raise
nice session timbo. solid squatting there, too bad about the fail, but distractions like that have a tendency to ruin a session when ur in the groove:) nice GM's as well mate
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.
Kai: prepare for the strangest feeling of such a light weight making you tremble!!
Ben: yep. I did them the other night and didn't write it down here (I've been doing a justification for a promotion in my spare time, but have been shafted by the politics involved). I did the pin presses after pullups and worked up to two sets of singles at 125kg. They were hard and I agree that I noticed my shoulders that evening and the next day. If that is anything to go by then I should be good for a PB.
Bulky: it really does ruin the mood. But at least I have shiny new furniture and the look on the furniture guy's face when I had the matress held by one hand while I opened the door was priceless (he used two hands)!!!!
I had gastro yesterday and shouldn't have been at work. So I'm taking today off. I'll update with a leg workout in a few hours.
Ok didn't really have the energy today after the gastro yesterday. Still not bad in terms of workout weights.
Box squat low (30cm) - long pauses at the bottom
Natural glute ham raise - first time I've done these in this manner, legs weighted down by BB.
Stepup - low box
DB SL calf raise
Kai: I'm hoping that they will add some weight to the squat. The pause on the box definitely changes the squat completely. For a deeper depth (not by much) I was doing a double with 140kg as a warmup for high box squats. This was much harder.
co05: They sure are hard!!!! I've finally got an adequate setup to do them and they kicked my arse. I want to have a GHR bench so that I can work the calves and errectors at the same time.
DE upper body
Probably a bit light as set 8 was too easy.
Thick bar DB row
A bit light as well.
Triceps were fried
