friday 3/08/07
operation blitz the legs has begun!

front squat just touching arse on box 11" high ( which for me is about 3" below paralell)

60k 5 65k 5 70k 5 75k 5 80k 5

paused box squat high bar narrow stance

80k 2 90k 2/2/2/2

found the front squats pretty hard ,breathing is difficult( especially for someone who only gave up smoking 4 days ago) and it was a bit of a battle keeping the bar from falling forward ,I guess this will improve with practice.

was planning the box squats as a speed workout but they where more of a grind ,never done box squats that deep before ,good session though really enjoyed it!

legs aching like a bas***d today! whats the score with this creatine Ive been taking it for 4 days now ,why am I not superman already !

they're alright mate pretty much a tricep only exercise , really only doing them because I'm limited to what I can do at the mo,still good to be training again after a short lay off and I think I actually enjoyed squatting on friday which is a first ! Your training's looking really good at the mo you must be pleased really strong on the bench and that sqauts just a tweak away from hitting depth ,pretty impressive considering your training at home woth no spotter and lifting kerbs all day!

06/08/07 squatting again today legs felt a bit stiff at first and I had trouble getting depth but after some stretching and lots of warm up reps they loosened up.

speed squats low bar wide stance 45 seconds rest between sets 60k/2 70k/2 80k/2 90k/2 100k/2 110k/2

to say the 100 and the 110 were speed squats is probably a bit of an exageration but the intent was there !

felt really good and strong at the end of these decided to go for a squat pbpsyched myself up loaded 140 on the bar squatted down really low and had the mother of all grinders getting back up ,must have taken a good 10to 15 seconds to get back up!
really pleased to get the 140 as I should have had it at the comp but bottled out of going for it!
unfortunately no video evidence but if you dont believe me you can kiss my skinny white arse!

good mornings 60k 10 65k 10 70k 10

weighted sit ups 10k 15/15/15

sit ups 30

made up about the squat pb I feel like a major mental hurdle has been crossed!

08/08/07

front squats 70kx5 75kx5 80kx4 85kx4 90kx3

paused box squats high bar narrow stance 90kx2 100k2/2/1 90kx2

sit ups 30/30/30

been on holiday for a week which meant late nights and s**tty diet but still felt pretty
good today the 90k is a front squat pb but only because this is the first time Ive tried that weight should have done 5 at 80k but my wife started shouting at me on rep no 3 and I lost concentration ! absolutely died on the box squats most of the second reps were semi grinders but if i find them difficult I think I should probably do more of them ,high bar position definitely makes them harder!
