Saturday & Sunday at Moggy's;
Concept 2 rower, 5000m in 20.47
Also a couple of sprint rows, seeing how long I could maintain a 2.00/500m average speed. Not very long.
Thought I'd give overhead squat a go for a change. Started with a light weight to get the movement, but found it unbelievably difficult to keep my balance;
Monday & Tuesday;
Nothing much, not even cycling as I have had to carry stuff to work and used the Land Rover.
Time for some PB attempts after a few weeks of almost regular training to see if there's been any improvement.
145F (Current PB)
Clean & push press;
My short term goal is 1.5xbodyweight deadlift, bodyweight squat and .75xbodyweight bench press. I'm 97kg so I'm getting there. Longer term it's .75xbodyweight overhead by any means. I've got a bit further to go with that one.
I tried bench pressing with the bench set up inside the power rack so the safety bars would save me if I dropped the bar. I banged my elbows on the way down and gave up. I need a wider rack and 7' bar for that.
I changed a clutch on a lorry at work yesterday. After taking the gearbox out, I was warned that this type of lorry has a twin plate clutch which is too heavy to lift by hand so I should use the crane.
Sounds like a challenge to me.
A few minutes later the foreman and another fitter walked past, saw the clutch on the floor next to the lorry, saw the crane still rigged on the gearbox and said "Did you just lift that out ?
They are already amazed at the way I cycle 12km home at 11pm, then, at break time they started asking about the food I eat, as they had noticed it's not the same as the McDonalds and Coke that they have, so I told them I'm vegan.
