    PrinceVegeta: Thanks dude. I'm happy with the sessions but my general energy is down a bit. I could actually get a bit more out of lifting if I was a bit fresher.

    El Freako: "Train for it and it will come" - yes that is paraphrased from Waynes World 2. Just keep at it and you'll get it. Though gotta be smart about it.

    SamoanZ: I agree. My bench and dips used to be very closely linked, but that has stopped in the last couple of years. Don't know why, maybe my triceps always limited me in the past and then stopped. Either way, triceps are my weakpoint now.

    tkD: Thanks dude. Nothing like some AC/DC!! Much better than the bands that try to rip it off now.

    Storm and PV: fatman pullups are an inverted pushup. Take a bar and place it on a rack just above arms length from the ground. THen lay under the bar so that you are in a reverse pushup position. Then pull yourself to the bar contracting with the traps and lats.




    Ok I started to train last night and gave it away. I did my warmup and then started in on snatch grip deadlifts. Instead of being able to do my normal 155kg with the overhand grip I battled with 140kg. The grip being down is a good indicator of overtraining, having an off day or whatever. So I jumped rope for 10-15mins and called it a night. I'll try again today but I didn't sleep well so may have to put it off again.

    ^^ I like a bit more volume on heavy stuff rather than going all out. Seems to save the joints a bit, and I ain't as young as I used to be.

    Finally got around to doing my deadlift day but it still sucked. The weather has been muggy and haven't been sleeping well, stupid thunderstorms!!! I was going to lift last night but it was still 30 degrees at 5.30pm (sunset) and humidty up in the 80's. Just would have dehydrated and felt crap. Anyway here is the details from the other evening.

    Snatch grip deadlift
    60kg x5
    100kg x5
    140kg x2
    150kg x1 (grip better but not 100%)

    Rack deadlift (lowest pin height plus 15lb plate under feet)
    177.5kg x2
    217.5kg x2
    227.5kg x2
    237.5kg x1 (battled to get this and lower back was the limiter)
    177.5kg x6

    Split squat
    60kg x5
    100kg x5
    100kg x5

    Seated calf raise
    80kg x15
    100kg x15
    120kg x15
    120kg x15

    Hammy curl
    25kg x6
    25kg x6

    Standing calf raise
    100kg x10
    100kg x26

    Soundtrack:

    tkD:

    El Freako: The snatch grip means you have to go deeper with the hips and you are slightly more bent over. The grip itself is not that easy as it is overhand all the way. I'm thinking I might try the hook grip with it at some stage. The pull itself you will notice more on the upper back and the hips due to the wider grip and deeper start position. It is not dissimilar to deadlifts from a deficit.

    I've been reading up on it and also on doing platform deads with a snatch grip for an epic ROM. I'm going to try WSB method for my training soon so I'm researching all the alternate exercise options they use. I need to find myself a low box now, my legs are too short to use a bench and get below parallel on box squats .

    El Freako: try and find a milk crate or two. If that is too big try and knock together a couple of bits of wood or find an old chair (rubbish day, student accomodation, etc) and cut the legs off to height.

    PriceVegeta: Split squat is what most people call a lunge. Lunges are when you stride with each rep, split squat you only stride on the first rep for each leg. They also tend to have a shorter foot placement than lunges to work the thigh more than the glutes and hammys. I've moved away from front striding lunges as it was aggrevating my knee. When I do lunges again I'll do a reverse lunge.

    Markoo: thanks.

    I'm going to take this week as a deload and do very little. Shoulder is acting up and I really need to just take a break. Hopefully I'll submit a couple of papers to the journals to publish this week, so that will be enough to deal with.

    I'm going to think about going to a split to give my shoulders less volume overall. Should suck monkey ballz but will be easier to finish quickly and get out of the heat. We've gone to daylight saving here, which is ridiculous as we are ~500kms west of the time meridian and as a result already receive a lot of daylight hours in summer. Just means that late afternoon training is actually middle of the day. Going to have to start having dinner prior to weights.

    Fine work on the deads - rack deads were most impressive. Hope that shoulder clears up and the deload does the trick.

    Milk crate, good thinking.

    My only problem will be convincing the gym to keep it somewhere safe for me. Its a Fitness First and they're a bunch of twats. :dunnodude:

    PrinceVegeta: Yeh, I'll go and see a physio some stage soon and see what is actually wrong with it. I may have some scar tissue or an ossicle in there that will always give me grief.

    Rocky: Yeh can't wait to be fresh and tackling those deads. The session a couple of weeks back I could've kept going I felt that good, now it's a battle. I reckon there is another 10-15kg in me when I feel fresh on deads.

    Big_guns_lance: Be interesting to pull it off the floor. 2.5xBW for a double off the floor would be nice.

    Driddrez: They were split squats, so think of a lunge that you don't stride every rep. So not as exhausting as you'd think and not as tough on the low back. And yeh hayfever is getting to me too!

    El Freako: Fitness First :egh: In which case they should actually provide equipment like steps and stuff. Try a fitness step with a few extra levels on it. They are bound to have those ones.
