First day back at the gym since a week in France and I was looking forward to it. However, after a s**tty day at the office with a 6 hour (2008 budgets), yes 6 hour meeting I am injured. How can I get injured by sitting on my arse for 6 hours? I have no idea but my right knee has swollen up and driving home was really painfull. So, am I the only person to get injured by sitting on my arse bored to tears for 6 hours?

Went to the gym anyhow and concentrated on benching. Reps up to 100 kilos then singles 110, 115 and 117.5 which failed about 3 inches off my chest. Then close grip reps at 90.

Tried some sumo dead's up to 150 but the pain got too much at heavier weights.

Squatting and bench on Friday. I wonder what will get injured before then.

Friday 10th.

Good Squat session tonight.
Full Squatting up to 170. Attempted a 180 PB but was way to high to call it a good lift. Tried some walk outs up to 220 kilos - felt heavy.

Crap Bench session tonight.
Was intending to have a go at a 122.5PB but I failed 115 three times!!!! I felt good but there was just nothing in the tank tonight.

I'll save it for next week.

Another crap session, training is all over the place at the moment, what with work, holidays etc. Still concentrating on Sumo dead's, lots of reps at 150 and trying to improve technique but failed to get 175 off the floor.

Benching with Kevin Jane, up to 112.5 it all felt very heavy tonight, two weeks ago 120 felt easy.

On top of all this my weight is starting to go up again, back to 117.65 kilos tonight.

Monday 20th.

Just a light work out tonight after spending the weekend in France.

I am currently in the middle of my annual rest period, I usually take 3-4 weeks out around this time when, if I go into the gym at all, I just do light reps and stretching. The general idea being to give the body time to recover from all the little niggling injuries. As I am not training towards a specific competition, this does not cause me any problems, I do however notice that after a few weeks out of training my lifts will all have dropped by around 15%.

Benching reps up to 100K and Sumo DL up to 130K concentrating on technique.

Wednesday 29th.
Weight steady at 117.8 kilos.
Tonight was the first session of 8 weeks heavy traing.
Looking to set Squat and Bench PB's at the end of it.
Pyramid benching up to 110 kilos, no problems.
Sumo dead lift up to 3 x 150 but cut it short due to stabbing pains in the side of my right knee.


Serious bad news - THE FARM POWERLIFTING CLUB is to close. We are being kicked out of the premises by the local council who want to make the room available to the local girl guides and scouts (the little bas****s). I have suggested we simply fight them for the room. We have to vacate by December 21st.

Does anybody want a gym? Furthermore does anybody know where around 20 powerlifters can go 2-3 times a week in Northampton.:( :( :( :( :( :( :(

Friday 31st August.
Weighed in at 117.4 kilos.
Squatting with Kevin. Benching with Kevin, Mark and Little Pete.

Squat
5 x 70
3 x 110
3 x 130
3 x 150
5 x 170 stand up from 6" below normal rack height
5 x 190 stand up as above
3 x 210 stand up as above
1 x 230 stand up as above
1 x 250 stand up as above
3 x 150
Felt like a good session, all the full squats were nice and deep and this was the first time I have ever took 250 out of the rack and stood with it on my back for 10 secs - Heaveeeeee.

Bench
3 x 10 x 35 wide / close / normal
10 x 60
5 x 80
3 x 100
1 x 110
1 x 115
5 x 100
5 x 90 close grip
8 x 80 close grip
3 x 10 x 60 wide / close / normal
Again, this felt like a good session, the 115 felt heavy when taking it out of the rack but it came down and went up okay.

Will be going up to the BWLA unequipped on Saturday to spectate, Kevin & Little Pete will be reffing. Kevin is undecided about competeing as his target is really the world masters in 5 weeks time, so he put in a heavy training session tonight on all three lifts.
