Mon 22nd Aug

Football practice 2.5 hours, not too brutal as no scrimmage at the end tonight and most of the contact stuff done against pads instead of people.

taz said:American football team in Morecambe, quality.

I remember you saying you wanted to have a go at playing it.

Offensive line, can see you playing there to be fair. Very valuable position, when I played running back it was always good when offensive line was good. If not trying to go through a non-existent is never nice Happy

Good sessions as well mate

Still need more players mate if you fancy a comeback!

Back to logging my training as I failed at keeping a paper-based log.

Never did quite do Crossfit but did get a bit fitter and down to 112kg.Currently 114-115kg and playing American Football for the recently founded Morecambe Bay Storm. Main position is on the line as an offensive guard (right-side), so my job is to protect the QB and block for the running backs and basically having multiple physical battles with the opposing defense.

This week...

Monday 8th August

Football practice 2.5 hours, hard intense session

Tuesday 9th August


Wednesday 10th August


Thursday 11th August

Football Practice, 2.5 hours, easy session

Friday 12th August

221kg x 2 x 5 sets

Push Press

Sat 13th August

Ring Pull-ups x 5 / Press-ups x 10 / Air squats x 15: 9 rounds in 20 mins

9kg Med ball throws (laying on back) into press-ups
