    Miami: not likely to have been a nerve thing. Plus it is better now.

    Philo: It is mostly better. Definitely a minor strain, just one of those strains you really notice because you can't sit or sleep comfortably (same as cracked ribs).

    I actually have felt like training the last couple of days but have had to rein myself in so that I don't do something stupid (mmmmmm deadlifts). I've tried doing a few slow sets of pullups and they feel fine. I'll give it another day and I'll get back into things. Probably do upper body so that I don't load up the spine straight away. Then I might do some single leg stuff for a week.

    I've also been contemplating doing either 20 rep squats or perhaps adding in a couple of sets of higher rep (15-20) stuff after the main exercises.

    Good to hear its nothing major.

    20 rep squats are insane. I would go for option 2 but that would be because it isnt that heavy as a 20 rep SQ

    ^^ Last time I tried for a 20 rep squat I got to 15 before my legs were jelly and I collapsed seeing stars. Didn't throw up though, came close, but no crazy moment. G&D only goes so far sometimes.

    Thank god for safety pins in power racks

    PV: Well it seems like the back is 100% now. Probably not, but this evenings session felt fine even though I woke up stiff this morning.

    Lionheart: Thanks. It felt good and the ME with the working sets between 80% and 95% seemed to work better than a whole heap at the same weight.

    Tonight was pretty decent with squat ME and hammy DE.

    PV: They felt better doing them this way. Really popped them. Going to keep doing the 5 sets above 80% but not all at the same weight.

    Miami: 140kg is the goal for sometime soon. I'm guessing it will take about 4 weeks, maybe 6.

    Tonight I did speed work on upper body. I think I got the floor presses too light and the chins about right. I was afraid the chins were too heavy so I went a bit lighter on the presses. Oh well, first time I've ever done floor presses.

    Snatch - always fast
    20kg x5
    40kg x5
    60kg x2
    65kg x1

    Snatch Jerks - always fast
    65kg x2 8 sets

    Chins - fast as possible
    30kg x2 8 sets

    Floor Presses - fast but felt a little slow and light
    75kg x2 8 sets

    Thick bar DB rows
    30kg x15
    30kg x15

    Pushups
    20kg x15
    20kg x12

    DB curls
    15kg x12
    15kg x12

    Plate tricep OH ext
    20kg x15
    20kg x12

    DB lateral raise
    15kg x8
    15kg x8

    Thick bar hangs
    60 sec
    30 sec

    Soundtrack:



    I was listening to the longer version of course.

    If your speed press feels a bit slow then it isn't too light. Keep on hammering away til you're creating enough force to make it a speed press.

    ^^ I'm not sure I explained clearly.

    The felt slow in comparison to my chins and jerks. I think that it was the short ROM so you are catching/stopping at the top almost at the same moment as starting. So it didn't feel like they had long enough to really get moving.

    Next time I'll go through a range of weights and just see, may video it (although it has been too dark to do that lately) to check speed or each.

    On a different note; woke up this morning and my ribs are sore and my knee hurts again. Spent the day on the road and slept on a really hard hotel mattress. Almost feel back to where I was last week.

    I also dropped by my old hardcore gym last night. :crymeariver: It has become a "Fitness Centre"!!!! :crymeariver: They still have some of the squat racks and big DB's but that has been marginalised a bit. The new owner is a former BBer and PLer so he has got a section for that, but the rest is pure chrome and fern.

    Aaaah the pussyfication goes on! Not much hardcore gyms keft these days. Sad to hear your sore again. Might be a good plan to take a week off and do some walking/bike or something else as long as it is not to intense so you can get a propper "active" rest so your injury's may heal better.
