    El Freako: Your list is missing the important ingredient; 4) After beating Tim he rises off the floor having learned his lesson in humility. He goes away and trains with renewed vigour to once again become the champ!!

    Skeptic: I guess there is nothing sexier than the way I get the rope and weight around my wasit to do chins and dips. The ass wiggle alone would make women quiver.

    Dridz: I stopped doing dips because of my shoulder, now it seems they don't aggrevate it. So they are back in. You really do need a decent setup to do them. It used to be so hard to get the DB between the toes and then get into position to dip or chin. Give them a go though

    I'm off to the physio soon. Hopefully will clear up what the issue is with this shoulder so I can fix it properly. Then I might go to the commercial gym near where we are staying. Always fun to squat there!!

    Freako this cripple still kicks ass!!

    Vegeta and everyone else; I've just got back from the physio. Nice guy, pretty helpfull and knew his stuff. I usually play a bit dumb around these guys to see whether they fill the blanks and test the answers they give. He passed. Anyway he thinks that given my shoulder strength and mobility that it is likely that I strain/inflame either the bicep or pec tendon in the shoulder. This is likely to be because I have a massively strong set of upper traps (his words) yet relatively weaker lower and mids traps. I kinda knew this already but he gave me a couple of exercises to do and it had me battling and sweating just to hold my arm in place.

    Also turns out my left shoulder is slightly weaker than my right. This would explain things a bit too. So I'll have to work on the few retractions as part of my warmup and also do progressive assistance work. While I didn't have impingement I have the weaknesses associated with it. So score one for Tim but I still have to be carefull about the way I train. As he put it my excellent lat and trap strength had offset the lack of mid and low trap strength to some extent but this occassionally would result in poor movement strength and thus injury.

    So I've gotta pull out the little plastic dumbbells and man-up and really fix my weakness.

    Very impressive chins and dips Tim. Glad you checked your shoulder out and know what is wrong so you can add exercises in to strengthen your weaknesses.

    Samoan: Like any imbalance it will take a fair while to fix. I'm guessing 6 months.

    Dridz: They weren't hot pink as the physio was a guy and I don't think he was gay. But they did weigh the same as those ones. But then again the rhomboids and middle/lower traps aren't huge muscles that can take huge loads at arms length.

    Lionheart: The injury is on the mend, I'll probably bench this week. The imbalance though will take a fair bit of time.

    Big_guns_lance: If I get it right I should end up stronger than previously. Fix your weaknesses improve your strengths.

    Ok this week is going to be hot. So I'm going to change to a split so I don't spend as long training. Thinking of something that will be 5-6 days a week, one major exercise and some accessories. Any thoughts.

    It was quite hot yesterday afternoon so I moved to my semi-planned (i.e. I was toying with the idea but hadn't really thought it through) summer workout regime. The basic idea is to have a body part split whereby I do one major exercise and a couple of accessories that will only take about half an hour to do. That way I don't wipe myself out on the hot days like I was doing last year.

    Program:
    Quads - squat, stepup standing calves
    Back - Chinup/DB row, tricep ext, wrist roller
    Power day - Snatch
    Hammys - Single leg SLDL, donkey calves, hammy curl
    Chest - Bench/dips, incline bicep curl, grippers
    Power day - Clean & Jerk/deadlift

    So last night I did:

    Squats:
    60kg x5
    100kg x5
    120kg x5
    140kg x5
    150kg x3
    150kg x3

    Stepup
    15
    5kg x15

    Standing calf raise
    150kg x15
    150kg x12
    150kg x12

    Soundtrack:

    Yeah but you could probably fit both Timbo and I in the same space you occupy .

    Skeptic: Thanks Kurto...... damn Aussie vernacular doesn't work on your name. Get a more Aussie name!!!

    El Freako: But my general awesomeness is a shining beacon that overshadows my average squat.

    Samoan: Nothing like being reminded that a 190lb guy isn't going to be as strong as a 320lb (??) guy in my own log.

    El Freako:

    Last night was cooler than the previous day so I may have started the summer routine a little early. Another PB on chins last night, although I battled to get the ROM unlike other sessions. So might have to stick to this weight for a bit first.

    Chinups
    BW x5 (or something)
    20kg x5
    30kg x5
    40kg x5
    50kg x2
    50kg x2
    20kg x10

    Prone Iso-raises (for the middle and lower traps)
    2kg x5 x10sec
    2kg x5 x10sec
    2kg x5 x10sec

    DB tricep ext
    17kg x15
    17kg x10

    Soundtrack:

    Just call Kurt "Skippy", if that ain't Aussie then I don't know what is.

    Huge chins again mate. Mine were rather piss-weak today .

    P.S. your video isn't working, again. You fail at life.
