Bim said:Great work jt, I know how you felt today, I would not have liked to have done 2 more Grin

Thanks, I think realistically to do the 10 I would need to drop the pace half a split or so,,,,, maybe I will find out in 8 months.

I can only imagine the awfulness of only 45's rest.

My HR was still in the 150's with 60's.

Thats going to be a tough session to improve on.

I seem to have tweaked my left side/lower back (yesterdays contortions painting dormers) which has given me aggro all day, not too bad on the erg But todays 10x45 was a massive mental battle I managed 8 in one go which all things considered I am pretty happy to have done.
5mins 1157m
5mins 1243m

8x45s AN 1MR
1991m 1.30.4 36 up 2M in 2 weeks!!!!!
250 1.30.0 40 174

I did 2 more 10minutes later
251m 1.29.6 37 161
251m 1.29.6 37 169

I would say I survived rather than failed the session

Super smashing sunday session elevates elderly english ergers (h)eart rate. Today UT2 I have been ducking it of late and was really struggling to get any motivation to do it. I split it into 20 minute chunks to make it more palatable.

I think, on both counts, the difference is that you've been training while I've been fiddling around.

Do you rank as FRA or a SWIZ?

Bim said:Cheers jt, do you think it is better on the TR work to go faster with more rest or stick to the intervals and let pace suffer a little?

I don't have any science to quote but purely from my own viewpoint when they get to 6x4 and beyond I would rather take longer rest and keep the pace nearer to TR than UT1.

4x2 4x3 4x4 worth trying to keep the intervals equal.

Lovely session today, now you know what pace to do your 10k at later this seasonHappy

SO you got 5kg more on deadlift

Almost got a Recent pb on Bench

Squat was a few kg down on last time would you of got 190? I still think not too bad a day.

My own training has taught me trying to get it back is difficult, when I was squatting and deadlifting regularly 2 years ago some days I could hardly squat off the bog or pull the skin off a rice pudding.

Programme or not, if you are feeling good on any particular day put the weight on and crack on thats my filosaphay.

» Right lads, I'm finally gonna get strong. PL 'federation' advice please. (Go to post)03-05-2021 @ 17:39 
unit94 said:Whilst I would recommend British Powerlifting if you're wanting to be competitive the other feds seem much more fun. I've done one PL comp which was BP and one ref was a right t**t with me, apparently for daring to enter their prestigious federation as a dirty dirty strongman. She shouted at me in the warm up room for not pulling my socks up whilst warming up and then said they weren't long enough so I'll have to cut them to pull them high enough. Now them being SBD deadlift socks made me think she was being a c**t on purpose. Wanting me to ruin my stuff to appease her was also really f**king weird. Me and my uncut socks eventually got on the platform and lifted. Afterwards she said to a friend that she thought I was going to be a t**t and a diva but I actually had a really good attitude. Nice to be treated like a dickhead because it was assumed I'd be acting like one. After that I decided I couldn't be bothered doing the British and probably won't ever do a comp with them again Tongue

I also liked being tested to try and get the dirty strongman rather than testing their top lifters hahaha

So yeah maybe just do BPU or something with atmosphere

A few of my favourites.

I have not failed, I have just found lots of ways which did not work.

A wrong decision is better than no decision.

If you don't know where you are going any road will lead you there.

Better to be a has been than a never was.

If you find yourself in the sea you've gone too far.

Get a map and f**k off.

Some people think rowing is a matter of life and death, Its not its more important than that. (sorry Cloughy)
