was great to meet you man!
nice to see that you enjoyed playing with teh crazy strongman stuff too
I'll definitely be adding some elements into my training. That guy I asked you if you knew, Stephen Mullin (his username on Sudgen is simply "stephen" i think). He lives nearby and has some strongman gear. And buzz is only 45mins away.
My favorite JP line from the weekend was at the falafel place when he notices all the side salads are untouched on the plates
"You guys are not eating your vegetables. What the fuck is that about?"Mon 14th November 2011High bar Squat
1x5x125kg (no belt)
3x5x125kg (with belt)Bench
3x5x70kg (fighting over small plates, so I just went heavier lol)Weighted dips
30s each at 30kg, 40kg, 50kg
First set of Squats were horrid. I went from not leaning forward at all to excessive leaning forward on the 4th rep. So, time to get the belt on (my beltless 5RM is about 125 if I'm not wrong so this is a good indication i'm back on track, and take into consideration the switch to high bar). The sets really did get easier to the end as I started getting used to the belt again. No problems with bench, barbell rows were suprisingly easy, as were dips/planks. Just got stronger and stronger as the workout went on.
Monday/Wednesday's I lift at the powerlifting club with a bunch of lifters but I still have a training partener. He got run over at work on Thursday and has a sprained ankle/broken toes. Feel bad for him. As an experiment tonight (i.e. laziness) I skipped foam rolling and just stretched. Funnily enough, I felt way more flexible while stretching. Maybe my muscles get tired from holding foam rolling positions or some shit, but I might actually just start foam rolling on off days once or twice a week as necessary. See how it goes.
was there a time we weren't at war; when we knew what our hearts and hands were for?
