Re: Formica's log 2013-14

Last week was OK... one gym visit, one practice, and three cycles in to work. Not great, but not terrible.

Yesterday I had 4 hours of derby practice. And I was hung over. That felt like a pretty long practice.

Re: Formica's log 2013-14

Let's see... I went to the gym last Friday and to practice on Sunday. I cycled on Tuesday. That's about it for this week. The drain on our tub sprung a leak and it's not fixed yet, which means I haven't showered much lately. I'm also going to a training course for work. So my usual routine is a bit ...

Yeah, derby is lots of fun - you should definitely go to a bout! My league's A team is actually in Chicago right now, before heading on to Fort Wayne for Playoffs.

Re: Formica's log 2013-14

Thanks! I haven't been really consistent with weights for about six years, so I hope I can stick with it and see what happens. We'll see, though - I have a pretty busy schedule but I hope to make it work.

Re: Formica's log 2013-14

Wednesday I went to the gym and did squat, shoulder press, and pull-ups. I'll be going again in a moment and will do deadlift, bench press, and row.

Here's a picture of my back from a couple of days ago.

Re: Formica's log 2013-14

Had off-skates training last night. We did lower weight, higher rep stuff in weights -- squats, deadlifts, high pulls, shoulder presses and press ups.

Nothing today. I also have this week off of work, so I'm not cycling. It'll be only weights this week.

Re: Formica's log 2013-14

I'm getting more consistent with weights now. These are my current lifts for reps for the main lifts (can do about 3 reps of this weight). Squat: 75kg/165lbs Deadlift: 85kg/187lbs Bench: 45kg/99lbs I'm pretty pleased with bench as I've only just got back to doing it and that's around what I was lift...

Formica's log 2013-14

Here's another attempt at a log! My primary sport is roller derby, and everything else I do is pretty much in support of that, though I do enjoy cycling and lifting weights in their own right as well. My background is in my last log here: http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=24&...

Re: Thoughts on moving out of the USA

My thoughts are just that it's not easy. It can be really hard to get a visa to move to another country. If you don't have any links to a country your only chance is, as the previous poster said, to get a work visa or perhaps a skilled migrant visa. But neither one is easy, and most countries are te...

Re: Missyle's Derby Improvement Log 2012

Finally all better and the weather isn't too bad now. I've been cycling regularly for a few weeks and am feeling pretty good. I keep meaning to get some photos but haven't got around to it.

Re: Missyle's Derby Improvement Log 2012

I'm finally back to cycling. I took time off while I was ill, which was about a month in the end! I still have a lingering cough, but I at least feel OK. I still went to all my Monday off-skates sessions and missed only a few practices. I'm now going away this weekend and next, so I'll miss a bit of...

Re: Missyle's Derby Improvement Log 2012

Have you ever competed derby in the US? Against Rose City Rollers? I met a few of them and had a couple judge one of my comedy shows. There was even a mainstream documentary movie made about them. Crazy How popular Portland has gotten and how popular roller derby has gotten. -Dylan In the US, yes, ...
