    Skeptic: Thanks Skippy.

    Glex: Don't worry, it wasn't that long ago that I remember squatting with piss-weak weights too. My current ATG front squat is better than my parallel back squat of a few years back.

    Miami: THe plan is to hit 130kg next squat session!

    El Freako: you just want pics of me nude :keke:

    Haven't trained the last few days as I've had a cold/flu. I'm feeling better but I don't want to have this thing linger any longer than it should. I plan to lift on the weekend, but I also have to travel next week. So may not be ideal training......

    Yo Tim, awesome log broseidon.
    I am wondering, how do I perform front squats ? I cannot keep my elbows as upwards as I can because it hurts my shoulders. Is there any other technique around ? One in which I don't have to force my arms/shoulder torque in such an awkward position ?

    ^^ Couple of ways to do them:

    1) Clean position. Requires the most mobility and flexability is also the best way. Best way is to work on mobility.

    2) Arms crossed. You'll have seen Ronnie doing them this way. Not as secure and does tend to encourage more back rounding, but better than nothing.

    3) Strap clean position. Get some lifting straps and tie them to the bar so that you can hang onto the bar in the clean position without the need for the flexability.

    4) Arms out. Basically hold your arms out in front, parallel to the ground as you squat. Not very secure but does encourage a great position when lifting.

    5) Manta ray (or stingray or something) front squat pad. Hooks the bar in position on the traps for the front squat. I've tried one of these out and found them to be pretty ordinary. Clearly not designed for me.

    6) DB front squat. Clean DB's to shoulders and hold on their ends on the shoulder. Squat. Hardest to do but make you look hardcore (if you use enough weight).

    Cheers guys. I've been feeling crap this weekend still, although I'll see how good I feel this arvo.

    Either way mid-week looks good and I might go to a gym while I'm travelling. In which case I might be able to get some footage of the squatting (too dark during the evening to film).

    Stupid cold and flu season! People with kids should know better than to catch a cold and then come to work and give it to the entire office. Stupid inconsiderate pricks.

    I tried out those front DB squats today because I hate doing front squats with the bar. I didn't look quite so hardcore with my 60 pounders, but that shit's tough! I like those and I think I'll continue doing them, thanks, Tim; as always your log is a treasure trove

    Glex: Pleasure to help

    El Freako: Quite possibly, I've been pigging out eating pretty crappy..... Although I have a habit of losing weight whenever I take time off so I made an effort to eat more this past week.

    Although I did train tonight, which felt good, I cut back on the number of DE sets just to be on the safe side.

    DE Upper

    Snatch
    20kg x5
    40kg x5
    60kg x2
    70kg x2

    Snatch Jerk
    75kg x2
    5 sets

    Standing OHP
    40kg x2
    60kg x2
    70kg x2
    50kg x8
    50kg x8

    Chinups
    BW x3
    20kg x3
    30kg x2 x5 sets

    Floor press
    75kg x2
    5 sets

    DB thickbar row
    30kg x18
    30kg x15

    Pushups
    20kg x15
    20kg x10

    DB Bicep curls
    15kg x12
    15kg x10 (surprisingly hard for how light this was)

    Plate tricep Oh ext
    20kg x15
    20kg x12

    I'm sure I've missed something on the list.... I'm going to start a spreadsheet soon to add all my workouts to. I really must transfer my handwritten log to an easier format.

    I'd say they'll be Thursday. Today will be DE squats and ME deads, then 2-3 days on the road.

    Also by Thursday I should feel a whole lot healthier.

    ^^ I was happy with the deadlift. Hammys finally didn't feel like the limiter so I should progress again pretty quickly.
