This wasn't good tonight. I believe the most likely cause was the fact that I was on holiday and didn't eat or move about as much as I should. Whether that is right or mere nonsense I will find out next week

I said:World on the street has it that Omega now have an outlet in the Trafford Centre as well as Breitling. That may be hard to resist. Just for a look obviously


Word on the street proved to be correct. The Omega is directly opposite the Breitling.

Breitling first then, I asked to see my watch of choice and they said they didn't have one, bit thay might be able to order one from Beitling.
"Might?" I queried
"Yes" they replied, "we don't sell these in the UK anymore"
"Please inform your seniors that they are fools and are looking touch with reality" I told them and left

The Omega shop was a different kettle of fish, they had the three watches I wished to view. One was way too chunky and thick, (circumference I can handle but chunky is another matter) one was gorgeous but only a soupcon more gorgeous than one considerably cheaper. The difference was due to materials and nothing else so that was that one out of the running. That left a very lovely thing that I could happily wear on my wrist for many years and be very comfortable with.

Currently I am of the opinion to stick with what I have. But the Omega's master chronometer status and 25200 beats per hour and it's advantages over the more traditional 28800 (giving it a ten year service interval) is a big draw.

The moral here gentle reader is just as you wouldn't buy a car without driving it first don't buy a watch before seeing it in the flesh so to speak.

Autumn equinox and Bilbo and Frodo Baggins' birthday.

Feel free to dance in the street

Monday, 20th September, start 15:00

Day one of the holiday, up late, watched a film, and then braved the Trafford Centre, the highlight if which was a very tasty burger form GBK. On leaving I decided that there was little point returning home for thirty or so minutes so I went directly to the gym. Fortunately on leaving in the morning I had the foresight to put the bag in the car.

Seated pulley rows, back to kilos now
35 x 10
40 x 10
45 x 10
50 x 10

As these were done on the new machine I had no point of reference of where to start and where to stop, but I have now. I should probably start around the fifty mark.


Not many down tonight, just handsome Jeff, me and young Brooke. She lifted rather well after a few weeks of not doing so, by her own admission she had "had a word with herself" over the weekend. Whatever she said it worked so I hope she continues to say it, but you will never see a finer example of the need of "getting your mind right" as Cool Hand Luke used to say.

Just watch a fascinating programe on the re-definition of the kilogram. Huge amount of work that no-one outside of the people actually doing it even noticed.

Their delight that in practical, everyday terms, no-one will even notice was a joy to behold. Good on 'em.

this made me laugh a lot , i also do not believe it


Splendid. Happy to hear it. It is very difficult to believe, even more difficult is trying to imagine something more difficult to believe. I'm going to leave that there for now as that could very easily get out of control.

That'll do it for me. Mack had to do a video comp tonight which was fun to watch and worth the entry money alone. I finish tonight for a week's holiday, so I plan to do three sessions at the gym and not much else.

The shoulder was much better but the hips and lower back gave some grief. On the plus side it did wear off as we progressed. This may be linked to Monday's exertions so I will consider opening this out to the workout after the workout after the next squat / deadlift session.

As is usual the conversation was wide and varied, but there was one amongst us who claimed that he has never had a skidmark in his grundies. Not one, not ever. I would like to believe that but I can't, I just can't.

Bodyweight tonight 134.1 kilos, so again about 21 stone 1lb

ChrisMcCarthy said:I noticed with some regret that across the pond Curtis Wainwright Jnr had passed away recently. 🙁


Thanks for that. I didn't know about him dying. He was my age, and a bit lighter. Pre-covid our lifts weren't that far apart. Obviously I didn't know the man, but I knew of him, and this may seem an odd thing to say about someone you don't know but I kinda liked him. I felt an affinity with him.

Aching today, and should be worse tomorrow. I am guessing that the reason for the sudden end to yesterday was that I was bolloxed. Hopefully I should get more used to this, especially with the extebded 9 / 10 day rest periods

I can't remember the last time I squatted and deadlifted in the same day. I did it in my last comp but that was five years ago. So with no clear idea of what will happen next - away we go,

Squat, sleeves and boots on
20 x 5
20 x 5
20 x 5
20 x 5
20 x 5
60 x 5
80 x 5
100 x 3
110 x 3
120 x 3
130 x 2
140 x 2
150 x 2
160 x 1
170 x 1
180 x 1

The 170 was in, but not as in as it should have been. Determined to get it right withthe next one I concentrated on depth, as a result is was almost a paused squat, no dig at all and there rather more difficult to stand up with than I would have liked. Jeff pronounced it the deepest of the night so that will do nicely

Deadlift, sleeves and boots remain
70 x 3
100 x 3
120 x 2
140 x 2
150 x 2 second one better than the first
160 x 2 second one better than the first
170 x 2 much better
180 x 1

Made rather a pig's ear of the last one, not sure why, bottle went ? Lost confidence ? Just got tired ? Who knows but we end it here now. At least I have something to work on now.

Samthepigman said:
I cant do both either


The intention is to do both on the same day, and those days to be ten days apart. So Monday next week, Wednesday the week after, Friday the week after that and miss the fourth week. How effective it will be remains to be seen, but I have hopes.

I had a conversation in the chippy earlier about the second price increase of the year. By all accounts pretty much everything has gone up, more than once and not by small amounts. The fish delivery guy is distraught over brexit and he voted for it. "I never thought it would be this bad" is pretty much all he has to say about it, and he voted leave with relish. Imports are all top dollar and exports are rotting at the docks, or at least they are in the fish world, so he says at least

Grim day at work today, got roped into some testing which took most of the morning then had to attend a meeting then call a couple of people back who had tried to get me earlier. I am not usually in such demand and ended up working through dinner so I finished early to make up for it. That time was spent chatting to Mack

I discovered a 25 lb weight, which actually has 11.338 kgs cast into it, but we have only the one. This should explain some of the curious jumps

Pulldown to chest, kilos again
40 x 10
40 x 10
45 x 10

The reason for the removal of deadlifts is that they will be done on Monday. Because of the difficulty of squatting and deadlifting in the same week a change has been brought about. I had the rough draft and Mack ironed out the creases. All should be revealed in the fullness of time

I had doubts before the last set so shouldn't really have bothered with it and sure enough there was foot movement on the second rep which is always a sign. Hips slightly better but only by a soupson, and maybe not a full one at that :-(
