Squats - 1st training session in a while as I hurt my leg. Worked up to a 1rm then did 5 x 5 x 70%. Realised I have lost the ability to squat high and/or stop at a certain height and drive back up again. Oh well.

DB Rows - 2 x 20 x 50kg

Lat Pulldowns - 3 x 6
» No Games for Misha ? (Go to post)03-02-2012 @ 10:09 
Unfortunately, Sexy Mike Howarth (for it is he) speaks the correct in his multi-point post. Misha has always been on the outside in terms of training, supplementation and (unfortunately for any olympic sport) the most important aspect: towing the line.

Sucking up to the powers that be, even if you cannot stand them, is a great way to get your toe through the door. The problem with doing so, for an experienced athlete like Misha, is that he probably believed his training would suffer as a result which would make it a moot point.

Isn't bulls**t politics in sport a great thing? Unhappy

JimboJones said:Got to disagree.... 2Pac is one of the most overrated rappers ever.

Better rappers than 2Pac:

Big L
Andre 3000
Ice Cube

Jimbo Jones, in my humble opinion, is not quite right, but does speak quite a lot of sense.

Here is my definitive list of the best rappers of all time (in no particular order):
Big L
Eminem (Up to and including 8 Mile)
De La Soul
Eric Sermon
Inspecta Deck
Daniel Dumile
Sean Price

Tupac was slated mercilessly as a rapper when he was alive. He was a dancer for Digital Underground (hardly thug life!?!) and most of those people who love him were about 10 or less when he died. He was regarded as RnB-lite rap you could play and not piss your girlfriend off.
His rap is loved now, because it is just as generic, poorly conceived, heartless and radio friendly as all the lightweights who dominate the top 20.

As I said yesterday Loz (and I don't wanna get into a you said this I said that thing) I got the list of 4 guys like yourself and said nothing about the other guys (yourself included). I felt and still feel bringing up beating me in London when I did 1 event (and that was always gonna be the case) was poor form. Again as i said to you Saturday you're not gonna say no if you got invited before me and I wouldn't expect you to but as I said just feel the truth was embellished a little to add weight to your claim of a spot over me!

If you found yourself in the same position against Shaw or Big Z, would you not emphasise your strengths over any perceived weaknesses? I think he was just gilding the lily a bit in order to get an invite and there is nothing wrong with that. It'd be sad to think that you two have fallen out over this.

Let me tweak the question slightly.
Is it possible to maintain squat/dead strength without training them by using alternative exercises after initially building the strength?

I believe this is called the Westside method. I award myself 2 points for being a smart arse. Tongue

Squats are the king of the lifts - I found you can squat and rarely deadlift and your deadlift won't necessarly suffer, but vice versa does not work. But I am weak as piss, so what do I know?

Having said that I think the deadlift is the staple exercise in strongman as so much of it is about picking heavy stuff off the floor.

Strong beats technique; if you can be at 6s and 7s and still press it, you're doing something right.

Well done. Happy

Apparently he did a one legged deadlift to make sure he got the record.

Apparently he went on to try and grind out 804 when one of the spotters thought they would "help him out of the trouble he was in" and that was that.
