    ^^ I stand on them fully. Just trying to raise my height a bit so that the pins don't have to be lowered a full 2". Plus I'd have to drill more holes in my rack now.

    Lionheart: the bicep curls were low in reps because I thought I should have been able to get 7-8 reps and found I was exhausted and got 3. I probably should have dropped the weight off but I'm not trying to overdo my arms when they are already clearly worked hard. Low reps on the major exercises is because I'm not really aiming to get bigger and because I don't seem to like higher reps (I find it quite hard to do anything over 5-6 reps on squats). Having said that I am going to go in for some higher rep stuff at some stage soon.

    Hypo: yep a PB on rack deads of 257.5kg that was only limited by the lack of more plates feels good. But now I want that +225kg off the floor.

    I'm not training this week so here's what I did last night.

    Jumpe Rope
    3mins

    Dumbbell Farmers Walk (2.5" thick bar)
    35metres
    15m
    15m
    10m
    10m

    Got a couple of photos of it.

    Tonight I might play with the liquid gas bottle. 45kg empty 108kg full, so mine is somewhere in between. Should be fun!

    PV: I'll post a couple once I remember to bring me camera to work to download them. Got a couple more last night as well.

    El Freako: thanks but I would prefer to live :greddy:


    I did my gas bottle workout last night. Fair bit of fun and was surprisingly easy. After doing my 3mins of jumping rope I started off just carrying the bottle around the yard for distance. It was awkward but not super heavy (I've carried 250-300kg strainer posts in a similar fashion). Then then missus came out to take photos and suggested it would be more impressive for it to be overhead. So I contemplated how to get it overhead. After a couple of attempts with different methods it turned out the hang snatch was by far the easiest method. Due to its length it doesn't actually have to move as far as a barbell, plus you hold it with a neutral grip so you get more pull on the thing. I have no idea how much it weighed but it wasn't full so it wasn't 110kg, but it wasn't empty either so it was more than 50kg. I'd guess around 60kg but I may be surprised. I then went for walks around the yard with it overhead.

    I'll try and remember the camera tomorrow and post some pics.

    Looking at the expression on my face I'm guessing that the weight is pretty reasonable. I was so fresh when lifting and everything was so easy, I mashed my #2 gripper as well that day.

    Yo Tim, that gas bottle training is so barbaric I love it man. Where did you get the idea for this kind of training? It reminds me of like what someone in the mideval ages would do. Start throwing around heavy objects over there head and start walking around with it. I just want to lift something heavy now hahah.

    El Freako: but the missus finds me attractive :crymeariver: Keep working on the chins, I'll be ready for another big bought of them next week!!

    tkD: Growing up on a farm is a prerequisite for strongmen! I don't know that I have the thick neck and massive bone structure that will allow me to lift insane things around while running.

    PV: finally someone else who thinks I'm handsome!! I like this sort of stuff on the week off. Actually feel refreshed and ready for some weight training again.

    PistolPete: I got the idea for the gas bottle from the keg lifts that strongmen do. I've been meaning to get a keg for a while now. We have gas bottles instead of a gas line in our house so I just unattached one of them and started lifting. And it is good fun. I'm from a farm and this is the sort of stuff we had to do for work. Lump a wheat bag or a couple of cement bags onto your shoulder and carry for a couple 100m and you'll be left gasping for air!!

    I did some other stuff too this week;

    Wednesday
    Front squat 1x20 with 50kg
    Zercher squat 2x10 with 50kg

    Thursday
    Good mornings 2x10 with 50kg
    Calf raise with 50kg until the burn set in.

    ^^ Zerchers do bite into the arm a fair bit. But then again who said training with weights was meant to be comfortable? Oh that's right, the guys that were trying to convince me that wearing gloves to lift weights didn't make them less manly..... :greddy:

    Anyway back into it tonight. I tried out the shoulder with some pushups and concluded that I will go to the physio and lay off chest for another week.
