So this is my first day of assistance exercises. I normally only train 2 days a week, but because I'm coping with the pressure of training better now, I'm adding in the third and final day.

Squat Technique:

Felt better today. Bryans coaching is top notch as he analyses form very well. I still put my right foot too far forward when I take my stance and have to move it back a couple of inches, but my hips were much better today with my back keeping its arch quite well throughout the movement.

Stiff leg deadlifts: (for the stretch)

Barbell lunges technique:
Just getting the feel for these badboys again. Back knee was turning in too much. I must improve that.

Barbell seated shoulder press:

One arm dumbell rows:

Tricep kickbacks:
Kept it nice and light

Concentration Curls: (HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA)
1x10/12.5kg dumbell
1x6/17.5kg dumbell
I worked my biceps for a year when I was about 16, I got up to 8 strict reps with a 20kg bell back then lol.

Neck bridges:
Was much stronger at these when I wrestled. Used to do sets of 30 or 40+ with ease.

Decline crunches:
2x25 Holding at the peak of the crunch and exhaling.

I'm pretty tired after that session to tell the truth even though it was pansy exercises. I've eaten well though so it'll hopefully help.

Today was squat day.


Again I'm at this weight. They felt nearly exactly the same as last week. My form was a tiny bit better in that I sat back slightly more, but I still am lifting with my back more than I would like to be. Depth is good, but I'm still getting that slight tilt of my pelvis at the bottom position and very slight rounding of the back where it goes from an arch to flat.

Pause squats 10 seconds:

Speed squats:

70kg on bar.

Trained entry to the squat, hand position, bar position on back, walkouts, foot position and squat line.


Bench is still going up which is nice to end the session after another poor performance on squats.

I only gotta look at Tobys' squat progression over the last month. I think that it speaks volumes. He's getting stronger.

Cheers Allen. It IS the macky ds that's making me stronger!
Even though my squat numbers are the same as before I took ill, the depth is completely arse to ankles now so there fortunately is improvement.

I look forward to the 145x5 on deads with better speed next week. Enjoy your training this week.I sense that bigger deadlifts are on their way for you. The midicloreans have foretold!

I think that this would highly depend on which "Vitamins" you take.
» Resting Heart Rate (Go to post)17-01-2010 @ 13:39 
My heart rate at lunchtimes these days is around the mid 70s.
When I fellrun in the summer it drops to the mid 50s to 60 with a max heart rate of 205 which shouldn't be possible at my age. I put my max hr down to having wrestled and boxed for years.
» Foam Rollers (Go to post)17-01-2010 @ 12:15 
I use the foam rollers and do rate them. Sometimes if I'm stiff at training whilst warming up, I'll spend a little extra time on the foam roller and it loosens the muscle off that little bit more which is always good.

Post workout I use it on my lower back, glutes and hams which have always been problematic areas from me. Since using the rollers, my arch has become better and my hamstrings and glutes have become a little more flexible. I also don't feel as much pressure on my sacrum when lifting.
» Is it possible to love your sport too much? (Go to post)17-01-2010 @ 12:03 
I think that it can be good to be driven.

I don't really socially do much with my life in that I'm not interested in relationships, I don't really like drink or pubs and I spend a lot of time indoors. I used to be that party guy who would be at every party until work then next day, then party when work finished, but then when I took ill and lost my job etc. as a result, my lifestyle changed dramatically. Because I literally didn't have money, I lived more like I lived when I raised myself as a child in that I would go hunting, fishing and trapping for my food, build my shelter and generally just spend time in the woods on my own. This went on for a couple of years.

Now I'm in a "proper" house with enough money to go training twice a week and an internet connection. The internet seems to take up a lot of my time these days. I spend a lot of time outside the gym doing things based around powerlifting in that I deliberately rest for long periods, I eat very often and avoid parties or whatever as to heal better. Because I'm pretty frail nowadays and don't heal as fast as other people, I have to do these things as well as possible if I want to progress in this sport. I know that it's going to be a long and ongoing road but that's what gives me the love for this sport. It's the fact that I have an idea where I am and I can see what's ahead of me if I do the right things.

Powerlifting, even though I'm a beginner in the sport, gives me a sense of purpose and direction that I'd otherwise not have in my life. Because of this, I feel like I have a right to love it as much as I want.

Was goosed this morning and not looking forward to training.

3x5/145kg (I really felt it in the glutes and sacrum today. I was stiff as f**k)
The last 2 reps of the last set felt horrible and I'm sure they looked horrible too.

Speed Deadlift:

Speed bench:

Light dumbell shoulderpress (seated):
2x5/20kg bells
1x5/25kg bells

Speed barbell rows:


All in all a long session considering I was still tired from squats on Thursday.
Gonna do the same weight on deads next week but improve speed and form if I can.
