Look like I will finally get my hands on some weights, so I figured I would start a log (I am also keeping this log at Vegan Fitness).

Currently I am skating (roller derby practice) three times a week, 2 hrs per practice.

I haven't worked out since Feb 07! I just can't make a gym membership work here in London, due to time and money. But we are about to move into a new place and the landlord is selling on his weight set to me. It is far from ideal. It's just a standard barbell with some plates and a bench-press setup. So no cage, which means no squats. :( Still, I'll be able to do something with it, which makes me very happy.

I'm trying to think of all the things I can do with a barbell and no cage. I will have my partner there to spot.
Deadlift
Overhead presses
Rows
Front squats*
Bench press
Hang cleans

(*Would have to use light enough weight to avoid failure because I can't drop the weight. But I figure light weight is better than nothing.)

What else?

Off the top of my head: bicep curls, tricep extentions (aka skull crushers), tricep pullovers, deadrows, clean and press, lunges, thats all I can think of for the moment.

Been sick, so didn't skate on Tues or Thurs as we had a bout coming up and I wanted to do all I could to recover by then.

Saturday: Roller derby bout. Two half-hour periods, but in some jams and out others. So less time skating than at practice, but more intense when skating. We took on Glasgow Roller Girls and won, 163 to 31!!

Congrats on the victory, your team definitely dominated the floor!

I have never watched them in action but there are alot of squads here in the u.s. and they all call themselves 'roller girls'. I never got into skating but I have rollerbladed alot over the years and played some street hockey...

Anyway, go Liz!

Tuesday and Thursday: Derby practice, but assessing other skaters the whole time, but very light on my own skating.

Saturday: Regular 2-hr practice, but with a focus on scrimmaging.

Livening things up with a photo--here's me from our bout last week. Photo by "Steve Kitten". Steve is his real first name, but don't know his real last name to credit properly! (He is the husband of Kamikaze Kitten, hence our name for him.)

Monday
Front squat
Stiff-legged deadlift
Bench press
Overhead press
Barbell row
Lat pulldown

Thursday
Deadlift
Dumbbell bench
Dumbell military press

Tuesday, 12 Aug
Roller derby practice, 2 hrs

Wednesday, 13 Aug
Cycled to work (the from part to come in a few hours), 15mi/24km

Am completely exhausted! Up until a couple of weeks ago I was doing only roller derby practice, and just added the cycle commute and weights. Haven't had many rest days and I think it is taking its toll! I'm sure I will get used to this schedule, but right now it is hard! I am supposed to lift weights tonight but might skip it as my legs are feeling pretty tired.
