okay so nothing for last three weeks because
1) kept leaving log at gym for two saturdays in a row so couldn't write up
summary of those two weeks
won't bother y'all with the full list of lifts
stuff going in right direction. Some PRs for 2/3? rep OHP and 5 rep deadlift. ORM of deadlift is moving up slowly closing in on the old 170kg. Think it was 162kg or so.
Anyway couldn't stay at home these last ten days (house swap) so went travelling with an American friend around Scotland in a car. Some highlights/thoughtsdiet
better again than last trip. Bought a ton of fresh veggies everytime we passed by a supermarket (hard veg so it lasts). Also brought protein powder and nuts and have been knocking those back regularly. Eating (and drinking) a lot of crap obviously (hob nobs, pringles, chips) but also a lot of the good stuff.
The overall aim is to get a bunch of calories (i undereat under stress), protein, veg and not worry about the other details.
getting bolder with asking for substitutions etc at restaurants. This resulted in a brilliant salad with portobello mushrooms, olives and dough balls (which i remember being vegan but this may be wishful thinking) at Pizza Express in Inverness.training
brought the heavy duty bands as always which guarantee a decent squat. Picked up a 12kg kettlebell in Aberdeen which would have been fun but my TFCC wrist injury flared up massively the further north we went (cold?). By the time we got to Orkney it was REALLY bad. Then we started going south again and it is almost back to normal. Will have a physio check it out when i get back. I can still deadlift with it thankfully. Bench is out for the moment though. The wrist allowed kettlebell swings so got a few sweet photos of that at various points in the highlands including some standing stones in orkney. Also got an Overhead press picture from the moor before the wrist went bad (wrist did not get injured because of that in case you are wondering).
Did some proper lifting in Aberdeen at the uni gym there which has good equipment. Had to wear my trainers though which made for a super awkward deadlift.
otherwise training was various types of push ups in hostels, squats with monster iron woody bands and kettlebell, some pull ups on beds etc Tried out planking which is a great bodyweight thing.
got to a really crappy gym in skye where did OHP and bulgarian split squats with standard weights. Realised can do partial deadlifts with a cable machine which is useful to know.
have to run to buy food for trip to strengthshop HQ tomorrow so more soon
JS - They think it will open the door to folk like LordMuppet campaigning for a threeway?
