    Ben: yep I'm more motivated in my training already. All my previous goals haven't had the same importance.

    Samoan: yeh I wish there was more coverage of strength sports in general but then again that is why we are here and not watching TV.

    ^^ Hey Jono, the hammys are getting better. They seem fine on hip extension and those exercises are getting close to what they were before. But the knee flexion is still well off where it was, although it is improving rapidly. I am noticing that I'm not pulling with my hammys like I should be on snatches and cleans.


    Tonight was nicer than this arvo, which was hot and humid. The thunderstorm and rain cleared that up nicely, but did mean it was raining when I was training. I'm going to have to work on max singles for the snatch and C&J starting soon. Not 100% how I'll integrate that and whether I should do max sets on accessories.

    ^^^ Hmmmmm this may be why the 80kg felt so heavy. I haven't done that complex for awhile, I normally finish the snatches and then do OH squats.

    Skeptic: videos would be nice, if my god-damned camera would stay charged :crymeariver:

    Samoan:

    PV: I'd suggest starting with just a bar to get the balance and feel for them, maybe even just a broomstick. Then probably want to get the bar on the shoulder and press it into position with a medium to wide grip (I grab the rings with my index finger). Remember to keep your back in a lordic or neutral brace and weight on your heels and have plenty of clear space to drop the bar and jump out of the way.

    Well I went to tape last nights session and the camera died as I was setting it up. Stupid batteries. It will work tonight though.

    Nice work on the cleans, SLDLs and split squats. All good weight.

    I hope your missus doesn't think you're lacking in hip thrust too...

    Great session timbo, Was the low reps intentional?

    El Freako: The missus thinks that my hip thrust is fine, but then again she doesn't weigh 110kg (thank christ!).

    Samoan: Overextending was the reason for the low reps. See what I can comfortably lift for a single on the C&J and snatch. That way I know how I'm progressing.

    Ok I've done something to my right wrist. I can't figure out what exactly as it felt fine after weights the other night and it didn't have any repetitive strain that evening...... I can only think that the sitting at the computer typing + C&J has flared it up. Either way I had to cut the snatches short and be carefull on the bench and rows.

    Samoan: Interestingly my friend's son is a big Iron Maiden fan and he goes around humming Fear of the Dark. He's 8 or 9yrs old and goes to a catholic school, so it is really funny.

    Natureboy: Good to sse you back I'm getting bit more explosive, but a long way to go yet.

    Lionheart: Lulz! I do a variation on the leg extension called a weighted step up! I do actually occassionally do leg ext as a warmup for the knee and VMO activation. But that is with really light weight and more about moving the joint than exercising.

    Ok got a few details about joining the weightlifting world from one of the clubs. Basically it will cost me $50pa to join a club with $4 per visit. Then I also have to be a member of the W.A. Weightlifting Inc (State body) in order to compete. That is $90pa. And apparently there is a sports store that does stock weightlifting shoes, but apparently not cheaply.

    So I think the shoes are what is going to be the expensive bit. Although I'm not sure how often I'll get to use the club facilities and coaching as I'm not in the city that often. Thoughts guys?
