Looking at my previous journal, I have pretty much met all my goals, and I think it is time for a new set, something a little more challenging than "be less emo"

General goal :

Be more of a strength athlete

Competitive aspirations :

Win the natty BSM 2013 Open weight comp, the only natty guy I am really aware of is Ben, but he is a u105er, so saying I'm going to try and win it may be unrealistic, but f**k it

Maintain or better my 5th place at SSM, now this will be tough, next year there could potentially be Cherri, Ken, John, Lee and new boy Hunter at this comp, who realistically are all a fair bit better than me (maybe A LOT better, haha). Not to mention Nick and a few other young guns! This is the only non-tested show I am planning on doing at the moment

Gym lifts I'm after :

140 log
160 FTO
300 raw dead
200 raw bench
240 raw squat

Other stuff :

I will be doing much more of the athletic stuff I have been doing recently, jumps, sprints, changing direction, events for speed. Really I still want to be a 90's strongman, and I think things like this will get me closer to that.
Also I have 4 KBs at home, so I will start using them, somehow

I managed to aggravate my hip injury, and felt like a bag of mashed up assholes in general from not taking time off after comps and dieting and blah, blah, blah, anyway took a week off the gym for the first time in a LONG time, and started eating like a 130kger again. Man do I feel better! I will be protecting the hip until it is 100%, so for the next wee while I will be hammering the pressing

Easing back in to things

Bench
140kg for 5 sets of 5 reps, nice and easy

Incline DBs
40kg for 8 reps
48kg for 6 reps
48kg for 6 reps

Couple of sets of curlz

Some neck harness when I got home
