Hey K-oz!
Nice to see you on the right track again!
IMO your goals are well chosen.
The gym looks good. When there are 60 people in there training it can be an extra-elbow-training for you while fighting for some room to train :wink:
The weights you lift are awsome! =D>
I hoe your ankle is not disturbing you anymore doing squats...

Keep it up,

David

Thanks man! 8)
My ankle is still hurting, but much better. I didn't do squats for two or three workout sessions, where I actually had them scheduled. But I just couldn't cut out the squats form training at all. I don't move my ankle so much while squatting and I found out that it's not that bad :)
Plus, it was just working too well with squtas lately to take them out for more than I did ;)

Thats good your restricting ankle movement since they should barely move at all anyway...just try sitting your butt back a bit more and it'll be easy to not bend your ankles so much

Yesterday I had a slightly different training than usually :)
I went to a Workshop and 4 hours of poi and staff spinning practice. It was fun, although we didn't do much more than the last time, since we had so many beginners.

So, I consider this my arm and also part of back training :D

The really cool part is, that I spun with fire the first time and it was awesome!
I practiced quite a bit for that - to not get tangled up with the poi while they're on fire :lol:
Now I am even more motivated to learn and practice more so I can do more things with fire the next time :blob6:

I have it on tape, but I don't know, how to share it, do I have to sign on at Youtube for that? Or how can I post a video?
And I also taped a little performance of a couple who have been in the workshop too and do fire spinning as performers. It looked so cool!

Hot greetings,
~ K-oz

Sharing videos on youtube is easy, just sign up (takes 2 minutes) and upload your stuff.

Ok, I have it. Here you go for the video . It is only a little more than 1 minute and a little darker than on my digital camera, but still nice :)
I like the video a lot :)

Thanks a bunch to Daywalker :thumbright: ! Without his idea I wouldn't even have taped it in the first place.

Thanks everyone.. I really liked doing the fire thing!

Ok, well today I honestly tortured myself!
I had an over 2 hour workout and for the first time my mind was stronger than my body. I forced myself to train harder than I ever did before.

I didn't eat anything today and barely ate anything yesterday. I guess this is why I got dizzy during the squat and deadlift workout, but I managed to not collapse, so that is good.

This is what I did:
Lat machine: ~23kg x15, ~33kg x10, 30kg x2 + 25kgx10, 30kg x 12
The bar is pretty heavy, about 7 kg or so, so I subtracted that from the actuall weight I had on. That what's written within the kommas is one set.

Squats: 25kg x20, 35kg x20, 40kg x12, 40kg x 12, 40kg x12

Deadlift: 30kg x12, 35kg x12, 35kg x12, 40kg x10, 40kg x8

Dumbell incline bench press: 12kg x10, 12kg x12, 12kg x10

Dumbell shoulder press: 8kg x10, 8kg x10, 8kg x9

Dumbell biceps curls: 8kg x8, 8kg x10, 9kg x10, 9kg x7

Triceps cable pushdowns: 15kg x15, 20kg x8 + 15kg x7, 20kg x6 + 15kg x4, 20kg x5

Shrugs: 14kg x10, 14kg x12, 16kg x10 (I held them as long as I could after ever set)

Cable rows: 25kg x15, 35kg x9, 30kg x10 (a different type of handle I usually use)

Abs and streching.


That was it.
In case I missed out on anything of my training on Tuesday I have made up for it I guess. Unfortunately I can't go to the gym on Saturday, I hope I have the time to go swimming or such. If not I'll train more on Tuesday.


This was the longest and most intense training I have ever done.
I hope I am sore everywhere tomorrow!

And i guess you appetite came back after that, too? Your body really needs good food now :)

Yes - it was a killer workout. Thanks :)
I am very proud of myself!
I am not as sore as I wanted to be though. I feel it in my back and my but (the second one is a pretty weird feeling, but I like it). But the soreness is not nearly as hard as it should be, since I did my best yesterday :( .

I can't wait to work out again!

Sometimes that would happen to me too. I'd have a terribly diffcult workout two days earlier(I don't mix upper body and lower on the same day) and I'd be sore the day after...and even more sore two days after when I was back on the same body parts and on numerous instances I'd max out in total or get a new rep record.

Yesterday I couldn't go to the gym, because I had a test to pass, which I did! :supz:
But I spontaneously helped a friend who was moving. I carried heavy boxes and other stuff back and forth and finally up three floors.
And the nice thing is, that I (my muscles) got tired faster than usual, so the workout from thursday shows effects :D
