Missed Fridays training as we went camping for the weekend. I did the obligatory 100m farmers from the car to the camping spot with about 60Kg in each hand Grin Was walking for a few hours Sat and Sun, most of it with the youngster on my shoulders, small amount of Doms Monday.

180x3
180x2 - Wanted 3, messed my line up on the second rep and stopped there.

Really happy with benching tonight.

Junction Tonight
Tuesday 14/08/12

Log, all from the floor
35x10
35x10
70x18 - pb Grin
This was stupid to be honest, friendly comp between a few of us to see who got most in a minute (I won Happy). I managed to keep going pretty much full on for the duration, but it knackered me for the rest of the log session. I felt it on the heavier reps.
80x5
90x3
100x1
110x1
120xf - clean was easy, didn't dip enough for the press
120x1 - easy clean, fought a bit on the press
140x1 - Clean only pb, surprised I got it, well pleased.
115x2
110x2 wanted more :/

Yoke
15m runs

10m runs
240x2 9s/19s
240x2 8s/18s
240x2 8s/17s - starting to feel good on this on
240x2 10s/21s - terrible, think I was just tired out
Yoke felt hard tonight

Viking Press - Strict
Not sure on the weight of the empty bars. Also the weights are half way down the machine so they don't reflect the real weights added. I'll just list the weights I added.
40x10
60x8
80x5
100x3
100x2
100x3
100x2

The last ones did feel like about 100Kg strict press. Hopefully will be a bit of carry over to my log.

53Kg Dumbbell x10

Kettlebell swings 28Kg

Good session overall, done.

120xf Both were close but I was pissed at missing them. Looking back I don't think I should have gone from a strict 100 to a PP 110, I don't think my legs were warmed up enough by the 120.

120 - 48" - fail Tacky had become pretty much useless, lapped it fine, but I couldn't grip it well enough to lift it over the lip of the platform.

Had fun doing these, my forearms feel like they have had a cheese grater used on them and Doddy crushed his fingers against a platform on the way up with a stone. Would like to try and do them for the next few weeks.

Cheers!

Probably will go for the 145 on the stones next week, I have done it before but I was trying more for height tonight. I should get the 120 to 60" next week which I think is needed.

I started doing kettlebell swings a few weeks ago and have been doing them once or twice a week. I'm doing them to help my log cleans as I use my hips a lot on that, and to try strengthen my lockout on Deads which is my fail point. Not sure if they are working for either yet, but they only take about 5 minutes and I enjoy doing them so they are staying in for now.

Just make sure you have your form right on them, you shouldn't be using your arms to do any of the lifting, and keep you back arched.

132.5 f,f - both close
132.5 f,f - managed to lock my left arm out on the second rep, so close
132.5x1 - pb Grin knew it was there
I think i need to start doing more push press warmups instead of jumping into them after strict, legs take a while to get going.

Deads with bands, take about 50kg from the bottom.

I was away on Thursday and couldn't train so I tried to fit Thursday and Fridays session together, kind of worked, I just didn't have time for squats. Might make it over to the Junction tomorrow, but it will be after 1 if I do. Got family stuff on so I'll have to see how it goes, might see you there.

Haha! Thanks mate. I've just had a week off work which has been great, but my eating / sleeping / training have been messed up a bit. Been feeling good on everything but bench for a change. Got a pb on front squat tonight, but was poor on bench again.
