I'm going to log my training on here again so I have a record of it. I'm much lighter now than I was back when I was logging on here regularly many years back, I'm down at around 67kg now, I was usually around 76-78kg back then. I went down the calisthenics path but have recently started doing 5/3/1 again as I got a bit bored just doing the calisthenics. My upper body strength is decent, but lower body is a bit of a joke, but I'm building it up very slowly on purpose.

I'd already gone down the calisthenics route rather than heavy lifting, but this did get me back to taking more vitamins regularly. I do still struggle with keeping my diet clean, but I manage to maintain my bodyweight even when eating a bit crap.

AMH_Power said:Haha thanks. I think it's genuinely because he doesn't know any different. The only other people he's seen lift beyond myself, is another lad I coach with an 800kg total and Luke Richardson and crew when I've taken him to the shed.

I'm trying to shield him from casuals as to not let it skew his perspective on what strong is; as if he starts to approach what he deems as strong then it gives from for complacency to breathe.

If he thinks he's weak but knows he has good genetics (he's actually gangly/skinny as s**t, but 5'11) then he's on the road to glory as far as he's concerned.

As rigid and structured as his training is, it's actually quite rounded and not too powerlifting specific (yet) in the nature of nurturing natural physiological changes without too much disruption that heavy loading can cause...

I say this, but got my 14 year old daughter to a 180kg deadlift.

The video of the full comp is going up at some point so will link as soon as it does.

Ps. Happy to share our prep programme for this event.

I'd love to see the prep you used. I don't have much interest in lifting myself anymore but still like to see how people program things.

Fear of injury was big for me as I approached 40. I decided to have a complete change and try calisthenics and I'm hitting PBs at 42 in things like weighted dips and handstand press ups, but I bet squats and deadlifts would be on the decline if I was still lifting heavy. I do miss lifting and might do a bit in the future, but the fun went once I started thinking too much about injuries when deadlifting.

donate to fight this bulls**t.

Donated. Thanks for posting this link as I'd of probably missed it as I'm not on any social media anymore. Good to see someone trying to fight this in some way.

It's an option if the economy crashes I suppose, although I have the flexibility of the tin man so I'd have some hard work ahead Wink

Here's a video of my 16 away from the wall. Goal is to get to 20, when I started I thought 10 was pushing my luck as a goal.
» Handstand press-ups (Go to post)29-06-2020 @ 08:52 
Thanks, but I'm pretty average in the grand scheme of things with calisthenics. Like most on here would I do pretty well with the ones that require decent strength. Flexibility holds me back quite a bit and I just don't put enough time into it.
» Handstand press-ups (Go to post)28-06-2020 @ 22:20 
Not really, a couple of people I've trained with have said about it, but I've been lucky I guess. Just like with everything build up slowly.

These have become a big part of my training these days, I mainly do calisthenics now and hardly do any lifting. My best is 28, I do have quite short arms though to be fair. I'm doing them freestanding too and have done 16 as my best. Good ways to build strength with them are pike press ups and raising your feet more as they get easier, doing just the negative/lowering part of the handstand press up (just kick up and lower yourself as slowly as you can), doing military press is obviously still a great way to build strength for it too of course, but if you don't have access to weights then just do bodyweight stuff.

Noticed these in the adidas mid season sale and thought they might be of interest to someone on here. There's an extra 20% off already reduced prices right now so some decent deals to be had.

My knee issues came from very poor hip mobility, as soon as I worked on my hip mobility my knee issues went away. They aren't 100% but I went from thinking I'd never squat again to been able to squat without pain and do pistols without issues.

Good to see you getting some consistent training in goats
