    Nice pics Timmy. Hardcore old school training!

    Last session was good too. Solid pull-ups and DB rows were immense.

    PV: It felt funny to do rows without benching

    Rocky: I really enjoyed that week of training. I'm going to get myself a keg and do it more often!!

    El Freako: At least I'm not as old as the women Tech feels

    I was pleased and annoyed with last nights training. The rack deads didn't want to budge, and I think it is because of the groove I'm in. Not pulling enough with the legs because of the postion. I'll lower the bar (after my makita drill takes care of the new settings) next week. Split squats on the other hand were an easy PB.

    Lower

    Snatch grip deadlift
    60kg
    100kg
    140kg x2
    150kg x1

    Rack deadlift
    177.5kg x2
    217.5kg x2
    227.5kg x2
    237.5kg fail
    237.5kg fail (really annoyed, just couldn't seem to pull correctly)
    177.5kg x8

    Split squat
    100kg x2
    100kg x8 PB (PB by 2 reps)
    100kg x5

    Seated calf raise
    90kg x10
    110kg x15
    130kg x15
    130kg x15

    Hammy curl
    25kg x7
    25kg x7

    Standing calf raise (hold at top and pause at bottom)
    100kg x15
    100kg x15

    Also I've lost 5cm (2") off my waist in the past 3.5 weeks. My dry morning weight seems to be around 87kg (190lb) at the moment so I've lost a couple % BF (~13%) and haven't had to really try that hard. Heading into summer nicely with about a 2-2.5kg gain in lean mass this year.

    Soundtrack:



    Just downloaded this album and it is heavy and enchanting. Great cover of David Bowie's Heroes with guest vocals by Till Lindemann in German.

    ^^ actually none seem to work (tried 3 versions now). I've noticed this before. Something to do with youtube.

    Either way it was Apocalyptia - I Don't Care. Not the best track on the album but those tracks don't have vocals and are really heavy.

    Still not inconsiderable weight on those racks sir. And the squats are rather pleasant indeed.

    Awesome rack deads Tim! And the calf raises are very impressive. Good job on the waist loss.

    PV: I love google search engines!! As long as it isn't porn then google will find it for you.

    DA: Thanks for posting! I use the snatch grip dead as a warmup. It's a progressive training technique where you use the lighter exercise to get you ready for the next. Another one I've used is snatches, into cleans, into deads, into rack deads. And because you only do a couple of sets of each but are performing at high loading (relative to the lift) using the same muscles it is a real challenge to grow stronger.

    Rocky: Yeh hopefully the next setting down will have a better groove. And I'm pretty pleased with the split squat. Next time I'm in a gym it will be more than most guys 1/4 squat.

    BGL: I'm kinda amazed at how much padding I've chucked on without really noticing. I haven't lost anything off any of my other girths and my waist wasn't noticeably pudgy, but I'm seeing definition in my chest, back and arms that makes me feel good.

    Last night was pretty staid and I didn't feel like training. We had Melbourne Cup celebrations at work (read everyone took a few hours off work to drink and gamble while still being on the job) and I was pretty tired when I got home. But we are travelling the rest of the week so I knew that if I wanted to do legs tonight I'd have to do a session last night. Turns out just doing something resulted in a PB!!

    Upper

    Chins
    BW x3
    20kg x3
    30kg x3
    40kg x3
    47.5kg x2 PB
    47.5kg x2 PB (this is a 2.5kg PB plus the 2 reps. Although the couple of kilos I've lost probably helped.....)
    20kg x8
    20kg x5

    Supersetted with

    Dips
    BW x3
    20kg x3
    30kg x3
    40kg x3
    47.5kg x3
    47.5kg x3 (this is still 7.5kg shy of my best)
    20kg x10
    20kg x10

    Bicep curl
    55kg x5
    50kg x5

    Supersetted with

    French press (normally I hate these due to the elbow pressure, but did a new version)
    40kg x8
    40kg x8

    Soundtrack: I didn't listen to anything while lifting but this song was stuck in my head

    Hmm... next week I'm going to try and beat your PB on chins. But I will have to tape a plate to a DB to do so.

    Things to do on Tuesday:
    1. clean house
    2. get haircut
    3. beat Tim
