Nope. :(

I'm toying with selling my oly set for a big kb, since I lift at the gym, and I could bring a kb to practice MUCH more easily.

Yeah, they are. I can get a 62 lber locally for $110. Not silly expensive, but still kind of a lot for one kettlebell.

Yesterday. Rugby practice. Not much challenging to note, but I was sick of seeing all the dropped passes, so I had everyone do 5 pushups for every dropped pass. We ended up doing 85 pushups.

thanks mary. I try to be nice, but i'm a fan of making people run or otherwise work.

on thursday (10/7/10. first day of IF) I was at 194 in the gym. (water weight gone, mostly.)

lat pulldowns (power rack was being used, couldn't start there. was hoping for a squat day.)
120 x 10, 10, 10, 8, 8

dumbell snatches (these are actually pretty fun!)
55lb x 5/side
65 x 5/side x2
75 x 15 singles per side. Considering I missed the 75 on tuesday with my left side I was pretty pleased, but to be fair, i had more time to try/focus.

Barbell Rows
135 x 9, 8, 8, 8, 8

Tried to do some back squat/push press (behind the neck)
135x5, but these kill my shoulders. not in a good way. I think I'm done trying. even if they are kinda rad.

Clean/front squat/push press
135x3. easier on my joints, but just didn't have it. ws getting gassed on power moves.

Deadlifts.
225 x 5
275 x triples for 4 sets
225 x 10, 8

shrugs
315 x 10 x 4
405 x6 x2

barbell curl superset w/ overhead tri extension (did these between shrug sets)
60lbs x 6 each x 4
70lbs x 6 each x 2

game today. fasted through warmups until noon. ate then, game at 1:30. No energy or strength issues, although I wasn't sure if i'd keep my veggie sushi down through the rest of warm ups. Went super well though.

Absolutely no complaints about IF through a game day.

I'm happy I overate by about a solid 700 calories yesterday, though. :)

Yesterday was a video practice, so no running. I went to the gym with a teammate instead.

Squats
135 x 2 x10 reps.
225 x 5
245 x 3
250 x 4 sets of triples.

Chins. 6 sets of triples.

That was about it.

Today marks day 6 of IF. Still no issues besides needing to eat a bit more, but that's nothing new. Still 195 with food in me. Still quite like it.

Thanks, chewy! Considering my one rep max was 275 last I checked, I'm quite happy about it. Might be time to retest soon.

Nice on the power cleans/presses. Everytime I try anything resembling a clean I do some form of damage to my left shoulder area. It's maybe a tendon or something because it's hard to pinpoint. A dullish pain from anywhere around the elbow/bicep/shoulder. I'm laying off even trying them now until I can get someone to teach me. I want to do them so bad though!

Progress is good, keep it up

I know the feeling. I get same thing when I do behind the neck push presses. I'm giving them up until my shoulders are stronger.
