    Essessen and Rageking; it's always a pleasure

    Ok no log action for a week because I took a week off from training. I was taking longer than I sould have to recover from sessions and I was probably pushing myself a bit too hard when I needed to back off. So rather than a back off week I just did nothing (well aside ride to work and the like).

    Anyway tonight was good, about where I was before I took a week off strength wise. I was able to bring down my rest intervals by 1/3 or so without puffing too much, I'm going to try and get the intervals down further to help shape up for summer.

    ^^ Nah triples. I just don't write it in because that doesn't change, just the number of sets. The only time my reps change is on accessories, hence the rep numbers for those.

    Lionheart: Thanks dude, I'll try to make note of how many reps I use at the top of the exercises
    Hypo: I've added a few reps to my curls so it may be time to add some weight. Pretty happy with this. But I still get out curled by the bench-and-bis-wimps at the gym :crymeariver:
    Princevegta: I'll try and do stories a bit more often then
    Big_guns_lance: Thanks dude, thats x2 for more stories.

    Last night it was time to train deadlifts and other leg stuff. I think that I was lacking a bit of energy and I slept for the best part of 10hrs last night. So I'm guessing that is why I will be repeating this workout next week. :angrydude:

    Lower

    Hang C&J x3
    60kg
    80kg
    85kg
    85kg
    85kg (these felt heavy, especially on the jerk, so obviously a little off)

    Deadlift x1 (singles)
    140kg
    175kg
    195kg
    195kg
    195kg
    175kg (didn't get all my sets so will have to repeat this later)

    Split Squat x8
    85kg
    85kg

    DB Calf Raise x8
    53kg
    53kg

    Standing Calf Raise x10
    85kg toes in followed by
    85kg toes out

    85kg toes out followed by
    85kg toes in

    Hammy curl x8
    23kg
    23kg

    Soundtrack: This song has been stuck in my head for days.

    El Freako: And you're looking huge in your avi!

    Lionheart: Don't worry I'm not that strong, I'm actually a 15 year old Taiwanese hooker who makes everything up for kicks I'm still shy of my PB of 211kg which I did just prior to doing my knee 3 years ago. So I have two deadlift cycles planned to give me a new PB of ~220-230kg before my (31st) birthday.

    tkD: I'm not actually sure how much a belt would add to my lifting. From what I've read it can add between 1-5% depending on your limitations. But then again we've all just seen the weightlifting at the olympics and half the lifters didn't wear one on C&J (guys my weight C&Jing what I deadlift), most didn't on the snatch. So if they can put that sort of weight overhead without a belt then maybe the benefits on my deadlift would be minimal :wutyousay:

    Reeves: thanks for stopping by and enjoying the tunes.

    Princevegeta: thanks, I'll try to make those deads even better for you.

    El Freako:

    Yesterday at work we had our annual physical assessments, you know maintain a happy and healthy workforce, not have them walk off with decades of research and go private. Anyway I thought I would write up my improvements (or degenesis into mediocrity) for this past year. My current stats are listed with last years in brackets.

    Height: 182cm (182cm :methman
    Weight: 90.1kg (86kg) I believe this to be 3-3.5kg of muscle.
    BMI: 27 (26)
    Blood pressure: 130/70 (130/80) This is high for the systolic, the stress must be getting to me.
    Flexibility: 37.5cm (35cm) This is ranked as superior flexibility.
    Waist: 87.5cm (86cm) :crymeariver:
    Stress/Depression: apparently I am both.
    I also did a cardio test that involved stepping up on a box for 3 minutes and then measuring heart rate to calculate my VO2 max. Didn't get an actual number but I was ranked on the border between good and very good. Not bad considering when I last did any cardio.

    Others done last night by me (all cold):
    Chest: 111cm (108cm)
    Arm: 43.5cm (42cm)
    Upper thigh: 69cm (66cm)
    Lower thigh: 46cm (43cm)
    Calf: 40.5cm (40.5cm)
    Didn't measure my forearms but I've added a centimetre to them (measured previously, just can't remember what the measrue was).

    So clearly I need to lean down a bit and bring up my calves a lot.
