    Keep it up, mate!

    Yeh its all gone downhill. I've lost the inspiration to write due to the amount of work and PhD I have. Hard to get any sparks of creativity after that.

    THIS MARKS THE END OF TIM'S ESOTERIC LOG.
    Please stay tuned for regular updates on the boring banalities of numbers that he lifts week in week out, until such time as he feels inspired again. This is only likely to occur after submitting his PhD (whenever the hell that will happen) and when work stops being plauged with overtime.


    Tonights log of events. Well lets just say I had a phone conference that started when I was meant to head home, and resultant work after that. So I had a short window before sunset to workout (any later and I find it hard to relax enough to get to sleep early enough to get 8hrs).

    Workout:
    60kg
    70kg
    80kg

    Complex 1
    Clean>Front Squat>Hang Clean>Front Squat

    Complex 2
    Snatch>Back squat>BTN Jerk (snatch grip)

    Complex 3
    Clean>Jerk>Hang Clean>Push Press

    Each complex performed back to back at each weight. Rest was between weight changes.
    The squat video from the other night won't be going up this week. Its too big at the moment so I'll have to trim it down. I'll break it in half at any rate as it also got my follow on single leg SLDL which I can post seperately if anyone is interested.

    Yes they weren't!

    I didn't mention that for the first two the back squat was followed by a dynamic lunge. Didn't want to do that with 80kg though. My hand felt fine lifting again, but my snatch form sucked ballz, and my traps are sore this morning.

    Life changes, so it's just fine to see your log crack out of a new egg in response. Just keep dominating all your various facets of existence Tim, and let us know how it goes

    Natureboy: That was idea of the session. Just didn't have time to do the normal session, and this involved enough strength training, explosive moves, cardio, and still got done in about 15-20mins.

    Eric: No you are not a dork. We just belong to a higher level of education (lets be snooty!!).

    Just a bit of an update.

    Between work and work, I've managed to chew up a fair bit of my energy. As a result these 10x3 sessions have really started to mess with my body. My knee has started to be constantly swollen, and my shoulder is starting to get touchy again. I feel this is because of the "You must lift x-kg more this week!" mentality of the program. I've probably really overreached on some sessions when I should have taken it easy.

    As a result this coming week I am changing (6 weeks ain't too bad). I'll go to a wave loaded program and incorporate more accessories to get my shoulders and knees back to feeling better.

    I've missed loads in here. Went back and watched the vid - looks good.
    That's a areal pisser about your shoulder and knee giving you grief. Hopefully your new routine will help aid or at least minimise the aggravation from it. Stay healthy and strong buddy.

    Thanks Rocky!!

    I think in general that my shoulder has suffered from both too few assistance exercises, and too much "chasing the weight". My knee, just too much work. This was one of the issues I feared with a peridosied program, that it doesn't really allow for what my body reacts to.

    The Routine:
    Day 1&2 Main exercise pair done 3-8-3-8 with 5RM and 8RM respectively.
    Day 2&3 Main exercise pair done 10-4-10-4 with 11RM and 5RM (Possibly haven't thought about this too hard).
    Will undulate a 3 week buildup one week back, then resume week 3 buildup.........

    Day 1
    VMO activation
    Squat
    SLDL
    Standing Calf raises
    Dynamic Lunge
    Hammy curls

    Day 2
    Pec and scapular/lower lat/lower trap activation
    Bench
    Row
    Pushup
    Fatman pullup
    Tricep ext
    Bicep curl
    Wrist roller

    Day 3
    Activation work
    Snatch (warmup)
    Clean (warmup)
    Front squat
    Single leg SLDL
    Seated calf

    Day 4
    Activation work
    Overhead press
    Dip
    Pullup
    Dynamic pushup
    Rope pull
    Arm work still to be decided.
    Grippers

    A nice looking programme. But thenm I'd expect it to cover all the bases from you! lol at the fatman pull-up - that's an Evo exericse too - and not just cos he's fat!
    Hope this yields you the results. I'll be reading with interest.

    everyone seems to have problems with the knee...i my self am going for therapy for the problem i have with my right knee...well its more on the lateral side of the right knee when i really try to squat. they believe its a miniscus tear but before though it was IT band syndrome.

    Rocky: I'll have to tinker a bit to get it right as I didn't really think too hard about days 3&4. Main thing is that I'm noticing that my recruitment sucks. I tried 1arm pushups the other day for the first time in ages and couldn't get my usual 6 on each side. This tells me that I'm not getting the muscles around the shoulder working right.

    Imran: You have seen my post-knee-op photo right? I'll continue to have to be carefull about my knee for the rest of my life (if I want to avoid having a knee replacement). As for your meniscus tear, treat it with kids gloves. My meniscectomy was to the lateral posterior horn of the tibial bone. As a result I can expect a 70% higher chance of arthritis in the knee, 40% higher chance of that occurring before 40yrs of age. But with proper exercise I decrease that to the same chances a sedentry person has (which is lower than sports people but higher than active people).

    Natureboy: Um kinda. Remember I have a long history of injuries (I'm not exactly robust as I had hernia operations when I was 7&8), have a PhD to finish, and am running a full time job that has seen a fair bit of overtime (evening meetings), combined with a demanding routine. So right at this moment it is too much stress, but at a different time it may be different.

    Your drive and perseverance are most impressive Tim. Rehabbing from serious operation is impressive, Working full time can be a challenge to working out too, top that off with going for a phD, man its amazing. Keep up the good work. You're an inspiration man.


    Peace
