    Sorry to heat about the traps dude, I wish you a fast recovery.

    El Freako: :methman:

    Samoan: I hope you didn't put that in the personals section, guys may get the wrong idea. Unless that was what you were hoping for

    Dridz: Thanks dude. I did have a good one!!

    I trained hammys a bit differently to what I'd planned to do. I didn't want to load the traps so I did Good Mornings instead. They worked really well, but I had to be really careful since I don't usually do these and I'm not a fan of fucking my back up.

    Hammys:

    Good Mornings
    20kg x10
    60kg x10
    70kg x8
    80kg x8
    80kg x8
    80kg x8 (not really heavy but got a good stretch without losing form in the lower back)

    Donkey calf raise
    40kg x15
    single leg 60kg x8 superset with
    Double leg 60kg x15

    SL 60kg x8
    DL 60kg x12

    SL 60kg x8
    DL 60kg x12

    Soundtrack:
    starts at about 40sec mark

    Thanks everyone. I'm going to rep all my regular visitors after I've posted this.

    Just finished a chest session. Went ok. Everything felt heavy but that is probably down to how late I stayed up last night watching DVD's and how crap my paper writing has gone this afternoon (should have it done by now).

    Chest:

    Bench
    60kg x5
    80kg x5
    100kg x10
    100kg x8
    100kg x6 (taking it easy on the shoulders still but these felt heavy and moved slow)

    W holds
    2.5kg x5 (10secs per rep)
    2.5kg x5
    2.5kg x5

    Standing MP
    33kg x5
    53kg x5
    53kg x3 (these were shithouse. I'm going to include these more often. Clearly lacking shoulder strength)

    Incline Bicep curl
    18.5kg x10
    18.5kg x7

    Soundtrack:
    The wind in the trees. Didn't take my iPod out there today. But I did listen to this just before heading out.

    Nice one bud, take vids and watch them I do and it helps me observe and reconsider what I thought was hard cause some of the shit I do I think is hard until I look at the vids and im like wtf that was easy.


    and the music is "Knights of Cydonia" by Muse.

    Incase you were unaware of title I listen to them everytime i work out lol, them and avenged sevenfold.

    Samoan: I'm not a big Muse fan but I have some of their stuff. Oh and I do occassionally tape my workout or key lifts to see what I'm doing. Check back through the thread and you'll see a few.

    Skeptic: I think it is the stress and lack of a holiday that is catching up with me. I haven't had a couple of weeks off in 4yrs.

    Anyway:



    My books have arrived for Xmas. My wonderful girl bought me three books for Xmas: Weightlifters manual; Woodworking; and Woodworking tools. Flicking through the weightlifting book it struck me how much more weightlifters understand about training, and how people who don't speak english as a first language write like they don't as well (written by an Egyptian weightlifting coach).

    Oh and I did quads last night and nailed a PB. Didn't feel that great going into it and was considering not training, but I'm going to miss at least two days with travel this week. Had to man up and face the bar.

    Quads

    Squats
    60kg x5
    100kg x5
    120kg x3
    140kg x2
    160kg x1 PB (I had two in me for all but the last set. I was about to do the second rep but ripped my shorts.....)
    160kg x1
    160kg x1
    160kg x1

    Standing calf raise
    160kg x10
    160kg x10
    160kg x15 (5 half reps forces out)

    Step up (22" block)
    12kg x15
    12kg x15

    Soundtrack:

    El Freako: And this old timer was stiff and sore the next day!

    Samoan: It took me a long time to learn to squat properly. It wasn't until a year after I did my knee that I went to high bar ATG squatting. I swear that it was the best thing I ever did to chuck my ego out and learn to squat properly.

    Lionheart: My bench is ok considering the on-going shoulder issue. It should improve over the next little while. I'm hoping to get up to triples with 140kg once this shoulder is right. My calf raises will hopefully add the extra inch onto my calves that they lack. They are the only part of me that hasn't gotten bigger this past year. Pretty much I just haven't trained them right or heavy enough. Oh and the book is Essentials of Weightlifting and Strength Training. THe guy just gets what lifting is about, even if his writing is a little brocken.

    I'm not going to get a chance to train for the next two days so I combined a couple of things last night.

    C&J
    60kg x5
    80kg x5 (the last jerk had me seeing stars)
    90kg x2
    100kg x1
    110kg xfail
    I was disappointed with this, form is no good. I'll have to read my new book and figure out what I'm doing wrong and fix it.

    Deadhang chinups (paused for 2 secs at the bottom of each rep)
    12
    10
    8
    These were a lot harder than you'd think, especially after the C&J's.

    Man, the clean and jerk has always been iffy for me to do cause of the injury possiblity that comes with it. But if you got the perfect from down with it you're good. Nice work bud.

    Lionheart: They are definitely harder to do but I don't find them as effective as tying weight around me to do chins. But when I want to do reps with BW that is the way I do them. I don't do the same for pullups though due to the wider hand spacing and shoulder position.

    Samoan: Not to be a douche, but the chance of injury from the C&J and Snatch is actually no greater and statistically is far lower than any other weight training activity. This is partly due to the complexity of the lift and the need for correct form and coaching, but mainly due to the loads shifted relative to BW and the correct technique being needed for heavier loads.
