Just a quick heads up, I haven't been updating much in here (on here in general) because we're getting our house ready to move out for 4 weeks. We're finally getting our earthquake damage fixed, so we pretty much have to clear the contents of it so it's ready for painting.

I'm still training but just don't have the time right now to update as I normally do. Hopefully by next week we should be settled in at the new place and I'll be a little less stressed !! MF


I find things here and there hombre. Good luck on the temp move, be well brother.

Hey MF, you may have mentioned this already, but what do you do for a living?

Thanks guys. All moved out today so we're in our new pad for four weeks now. Surprised the girls both went straight to sleep, the move must've tired them out.

Took Sunday off training as we spent all of the day shifting out of our house to get earthquake repairs done. So we now have a month staying at the in-laws rental property. It's not too bad, an older house but it has all the mod cons like Sky, broadband etc.

They've done a good job bringing it up to date, we're pretty lucky to have it available to us.

Anyhow, looking forward to hitting the gym tonight. Will bench and probably some OHP's as well, want to squat but legs are a little sore from the deadlifts so I'll leave them until tomorrow.

SATURDAY 24th AUGUST

PRE-WO:

Large espresso

DEADLIFT NIGHT
BW: 139
40mins

Deficit DL's, single reps (using 33lb plates)
1PPS x 10
2PPS x 5
3PPS x 5
3PPS x 5
4PPS (308) x 1
4PPS (308) x 1

Bar Hangs
2 arms ~ 45secs
Left arm ~ 30secs
Right arm ~ 30secs

Stretching & foam rolling ~ 5mins

** Not sure how I feel about this session, suppose it was okay. Feel disappointed with pulling 308, felt heavier than it should have. But then again I maxed out at a little over 400 on deficits at my strongest, and that was after a good couple of years of training. This is only my second or third session pulling so I should probably be content. I think I'll be back to pulling 5PPS again in a few months.

Cheers guys !! Hitting the gym today, will just do some general work for reps.

Haven't been able to have the time or focus to train this week just with all of the business stuff that I have going on right now. Wife is away with our youngest daughter for 5 days now, just droped them off at the airport.

So I got a call on Friday from the receptionist of the cardiologist I want to see, she thinks I will be able to get my tests done with him within the next few weeks. I could have seen anyone but this guy is the best in Christchurch ~ Dr. James Blake. He worked in the States for a while and is very well revered in his field, so I opted to wait until I can get in with him. I think I am getting a fitness/treadmill test, Holter test and a ECG done. Hopefully I get the all clear to get back to competing in PL'ing, that would make my year.

I've already got my mind set on it and I have been slowly dropping weight. I want to be at a NZ standard for the 130lb class when I compete, there's records there for the taking.

Got this photo sent to me earlier from my wife, our 4yr old daughter was so excited to be flying. I heard she got well treated in Business class 8)

Such a fantastic Fathers Day. Took Misa to Hanmer springs thermal resort for the day, we had a walk for about an hour up to the top of 'Conical Hill' and soaked up the sunshine...

Image

Then we headed back down into the village, had a bit of lunch and then spent a few hours in the hot pools. Drove back in the late afternoon, I can't remember a more idyllic weekend than this one. We both had a lovely day, she is starting to miss her sister a little bit now so it was really neat to watch them both on Skype tonight.
