That's a hell of a drop mate! It's amazing what not eat obvious crap does.

Cheers mate, I expected to have DOMS today but I've got almost nothing. A bit in the VMO's but nothing else. Tbh I didn't realise how much the headaches were effecting me, now they are gone things are so much easier.

Chucked in a load of new mobility exercises here. They seemed to work very well as my squatting felt much better than last week. I need to experiment a bit more but this has convinced me that I need to put the effort into mobility. There will be extra KG's on the bar if I get this right.

Squat
70kg x 5 reps
120kg x 5 reps
160kg x 3 reps
190kg x 1 rep --Much better back angle than last weeks 200kg but still not perfect. This quite literally seems to be about the tipping point for me. I'll go a little heaver over the coming weeks but not crazy but it's about this sort of weight that I'm looking for the form breakdown.

--Reverse bands on
190kg x 10 reps
190kg x 5 reps --I intended all sets to be 10 reps but my cardio isn't what it was and that was the limiting factor.
190kg x 6 reps

Dip Crunches
x 5+ reps
x 5+ reps
x 5+ reps
x 5+ reps --Not really sure what to call these. I popped up onto the bars like I was about to start a set of dips but instead raised my hips up and back. These reps were surprisingly hard and my abs were shaking and on fire in no time. I did at least 5 reps each set but never more than 10.

Band Shrugs --1 second pause at top

Wayne_Cowdrey said:What is the requirement for the Dinnie Stones? A videoed 300kg lift? Is there a list of valid lifts? I imagine a 20" dead lift wouldn't be valid!


I've had some conflicting reports but basically a deadlift variant with at least 300kg with not grip assistance other than chalk. The premise is safety; you need to be able to demonstrate that your body can support 300kg. My guess is they need something like that for insurance and so they don't get sued. Also (warning cynical comment impending) they get to see you and thus can make a judgement about if they thing the stone will break you or not. Someone lifting with awful form through a 1" ROM and barely making the lift would seem an unsafe bet.

I'll probably make my video with the replica handles in the end, seems the best option available to me. If it comes to it I'll make a selection and they can pick one, lol.

Nice to see some band work going on mate. I find bands to be very joint friendly, you just need to be a bit inventive.

Do you follow Stefi Cohen on Insta? I recommend you do, she puts up awesome mobility drills. Lot's of odds and ends you can use as part of your warm up.

stephen9069 said:That's some strong pulling mate and by the sounds of it it doesn't seem like the 300kg is to far away if form is the issue.

Hate those Nordic curls lol


Thanks mate, it was certainly there, probably had around 320 tbh but I'd rather get good quality reps in rather than bull skulled ego lifts. That's where I've gone wrong in the past so I'm trying to learn. Lets see how that goes. I worked out it's because I've got a mobility problem, I suffer from APT due to all the sitting I do. This something I usually combat with stetches and lifting. However, with 2 weeks off and lots of just sitting around it's got a lot worse. Good news is I'm reversing it rapidly.

The nordics are part of the same issue, I need more ham and glute strength to balance my quads. But you're right, they're horrible.

My form was breaking down and it just didn't feel right in the back so I called it a day. I think this is a mobility issue so I will work on that. Given today's lesson I'm unsure how to proceed with deads at this point. I could get very specific and work purely with the Dinnie handles or I could be more general and just up my all round deadlift ability.

If I've learned anything mate, it's that the boring stuff is usually very effective. How can gains be boring?

stephen9069 said:looking very strong mate you haven't dropped anything at all.

Your going to give the dinnie stones a go ?

Might be looking strong but feels like a struggle at the moment. Actually I take that back, it's conditioning that has dropped which is why I can't hit all my sets right now. That will come back very soon I'm sure.

I've thought about the Dinnie stones loads and I now I've gone a few steps further; getting replica handles and making enquiries. Should be on track for an attempt in the summer. Gonna see if I can get work to sponsor me, it should get in some sort of press.

stephen9069 said:Hasnt sqautted in a month then pause squats 200kg lol ?


It did feel good. I was most nervous about squats as I get a lot of pressure in my head. So naturally I want for something that is really hard. If I was gonna bleed it would have been on that lift. Im sure theres logic in there somewhere lol. Next week should be business as usual although I do need to records a 300kg lift of some description so I can apply to lift the real Dinnie Stones.
