haha its all in the name of romance ;)

Friday 23/11/12

deadlifts
40 Kg x 5
60 Kg x 5
80 Kg x 5
100 Kg x 3
110 Kg x 1 and hold
110 Kg x 2 but... it was with mixed grip still good, then hold
60 Kg x 12 I held the bar for 10 seconds every 4 reps

seated row machine 3 sets
lat pull down 1 set for warm up

chin ups x 7 waaaaah :( couldn't beat my 8 ahha
pull ups x 4
pull ups x 1 and hold
x 1 and hold
x 1 and hold

Challenge time! this time with sit ups, I haven't done a sit up for like a year so this was truly awful.
I went first and managed 25.
my buddy casey went after and did 30. it's currently 2-1 to him :(

after watching worlds strongest man last night I was full of motivation and inspiration so I really enjoyed today
I've been neglecting squats and shoulder work so that'll be my priority on Monday! I wanna see if I can still squat 115Kg as I haven't squatted heavy in ages

just one dude, 5 reps at 105 Kg 8 reps at 95 Kg, but I don't feel like a go low enough, I'm hoping that the deadlifting will help with the squats and getting them proper ass to grass

Deadlifts have a carry over to your squatting, just be careful going really heavy if you haven't squatted in a while mate.

Strongman and watching WSM sure does fire you up! There's a guy on YouTube that has most of the competitions uploaded from each year, most of them are about 50mins long and awesome to watch so check them out! I've started to try and figure out how to do some of that stuff in the gym, I'll regularly do 80-100m 'Farmers Walks' using dumbbells (bloody tough)! Plus 1 x arm dumbbell shoulder presses are great if you do a continual set with 3 or 4 dumbbells pyramidding up in weight. BRUTAL!

Was just about to say about those guys too, especially veggiesasquatch,
I dont know what happened to chewy but he's stopped posting in veganfitness.net too so it isn't just us he's left :P last I saw was that he had a lot of strong man comps going on plus he had a new girlfriend and job so I suppose he's just to busy to post :/
