Re: WhenDanSaysJump : The Journal Of Joy.

Foul mood continued yesterday with another disheartening gym excursion. Push press 6, 6-8 62.5kg x 6, 62.5kg x 5 Chins 4 x 6 DB incline bench 6, 6-8 36kg x 0, 36kg x 0, 36kg x 0. WHAAAAAAAAAAAAT?

Re: WhenDanSaysJump : The Journal Of Joy.

Went for a new 1rm squat of 142.5kg yesterday. Did not succeed. Set a new 3RM of 125kg on my way, but that hasn't lifted my foul mood at all. :evil:

Snatch 1-1-1-1-1 50kg x 1, 50kg x 1, 50kg x 1, 50kg x 1, 50kg x 1. I was looking for five solid reps and I got them. Which is nice. Clean & jerk 1-1-1 70kg x 1, 75kg x 1, 80kg x 1. Lovely. Some clap pushups and some chins : then vainglorious arm isos. Finished off with some retch-inducing treadm...

Re: Do you include olympic lifts into your routine?

Every fourth workout, I'll drill the olympic lifts. Only ever singles.

Re: WhenDanSaysJump : The Journal Of Joy.

Nope, just a tiny incline.

24 sets of Viking Warrior Conditioning completed. Heart rate somewhere in the upper mesosphere.

Re: WhenDanSaysJump : The Journal Of Joy.

June is here and today was a good day. Snatch 1-1-1 50kg x 1, 55kg x 1, 60kg... FAIL. But I was so close. So close. So I added an extra attempt and got the 60kg snatch. I know that's not an impressive weight in any way, shape or form, but I'd been striving for that for some time now and I'm stoked a...

Belated congratulations on the StrengthShop job. :D

It's an awesome website. If they can start offering 36 month finance packages, I'm all over a set of bumpers and squat stands!

Re: WhenDanSaysJump : The Journal Of Joy.

I have just arrived home from a thoroughly pleasing gym adventure. Lower body today... Back squat 6-6-6-6 Kept it nice and easy ahead of deadlifts, so 100kg x 6 across all four sets. Deadlift 3-2-1 140kg x 3, 150kg x 2, 160kg x 1 I was shocked at how easily I ripped 160kg off the ground. No joke, it...

Re: WhenDanSaysJump : The Journal Of Joy.

Well, I probably shouldn't have decided to get drunk as a response to bad news. My gym performance was... somewhat lacking. Decided that for the next little while I'd switch up my rep scheme a little for my upper body excursions. Today : Push press 6, 6-8 60kg x 6, 60kg x 8 Chins 4x6 All was going w...

Re: Missyle's Derby Improvement Log 2012

Yesterday I felt absolutely hideous. I had the worst headache I've had for a very long time. I'm not sure exactly what caused this. Could be withdrawal from caffeine. I tend to find that the first couple of days of me taking a caffeine break are roughly equivalent to hell on Earth. Or at the very l...

Re: WhenDanSaysJump : The Journal Of Joy.

Today was meant to have included an upper body workout. A combination of 6 hours driving, illness, Monday-induced sulking and, to top it all off, news of a bereavement, have all conspired to render me as beyond unmotivated. I'd love to say that I'm being badass and lifting the pain away, but instead...

Re: WhenDanSaysJump : The Journal Of Joy.

Funnily enough, I've been looking at the various permutations of 5/3/1 on http://www.strstd.com/. Once I have the time available to devote four days each week to the gym, I'm seriously considering devoting a couple of cycles to 5/3/1.
