Nope, just a tiny incline.

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

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 treadmill pushes. Home now, protein shake in my mighty fist. Good times!

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:

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? Wailing and gnashing of teeth ensued. Then I tried :

BB bench 6, 6-8

70kg x 6, 70kg x 8. To try and bring a modicum of cheer to proceedings, I decided to attempt a 1RM. 90kg x 1, 90kg x 1. Better, but painful. My pecs are sore this morning.

DB row 6, 6-8

50kg x 6/6, 50kg x 6/5,1

...to top it off, when replacing the 50kg DB in the rack, it wasn't as securely placed as I'd hoped and I managed to trap my right hand beneath it. Grr.

Treadmill pushes to finish, went home to pout. Maybe today will be a better session.

Hey Dan, are you still training? Haven't seen you post for a long time. Or did you start another journal here and I've just missed it?
