    Lance and Jono: I'm thinking the C&J would be good for 110kg, hard to say as for the first time ever I'm getting a full squat clean easily enough and struggling with the jerk.

    Bench session this evening went ok. I'll probably dive right into week 3 tomorrow as they will be the last "cool" days this week (as in less than 40°C).

    To all climate change skeptics: I was in a meeting this afternoon with our organisation's climate scientists and presented some stats on this summer in my area, which can be summarised as the hottest average maxima for January and February ever (37°C) with zero rainfall (we usually average ~33°C and 15mm of rainfall each month). I was expecting a few surprised sounds, but instead was greeted with "well that means we are right on track with the predicted climate change for WA summers". It's happening people!!

    Anyway on to the workout.

    Bench
    60kg x5
    80kg x5

    92.5kg x3
    105kg x3
    117.5kg x6 - tried for 7th rep but only got it halfway up.

    Thick bar DB row
    45kg x20 3 sets - holy need-to-lay-down Batman!

    DB bench press - sick of inclines
    40kg x12 2 sets

    Wrist curls
    20kg x15 3 sets - supinated
    20kg x20 3 sets - pronated

    Plate OH tricep ext
    23kg x17 2 sets

    BB bicep curl
    40kg x8

    Soundtrack:

    someone was in good shape yesterday eh? nice session, strong bench, strong rows. very solid.


    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.

    Jono: I like my rows, they are like a light-weight version of Kroc Rows.

    Pickle: It was a phone meeting, golden shower would have been difficult to arrange.

    Bulky: The day felt good, but I think the main thing was that I had no pressure to cook, etc (the wife is away for a couple of days).

    It seemed a shame that a nice day be wasted without training, but I really didn't feel like doing any training. So I did some cardio.

    30mins of rowing. Didn't really push myself, but got sweaty and in need of carbs.

    man, how in the hell can you interpret shock over a phone?

    Cheers guys. Squats this evening. Mixed up a free pre-workout sample I got with my last supplement order. Black Powder, has creatine, bet-alanine and a caffeine of some sort in it. Tasted like orange flavour Staminaid, very drinkable. Unfortuneately I didn't realise it was eppervesent so it actually exploded as I was shaking it to mix. So only got to drink half of it, but I can say it was pretty decent stuff, I may actually buy some next order.

    Ahh gotcha now. I have a step that I use normally, but at the moment I've been able to use the step. I have a foot injury of some sort that is antagonised by doing the calf raise on the step. So instead I'm just doing them as raises on the ground.

    I've found in the past that just off the ground calf raises only seem to maintain calves and not really stimulate them to grow. It was the reason I built a step to use, as soon as I did my calves started growing for the first time in years.

    Thank you. I have a really hard time doing them off the floor with free weight (no Smith machine), with no step, I just can't keep my balance. I thought it was a good way to overload the calves, using a limited ROM and heavy weight.
    I made that analogy after seeing this pic:
    Tim's Journeyman Log

    But from my experience I found a dominant glycolytic type training more eficient to estimulate muscle growth.


    Long, long wait...
