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.

Workouts are looking good man. Your single arm rows are well decent! That's some heavy weight!
» Original post deleted (Go to post)15-01-2010 @ 14:08 
Well done on your two new pbs over the last two sessions.
Your progress is constant. Can't get better than that!

Carl said:PMSL!!!

i just think its hypocritical to criticise others for using the NHS when we all lift stuff no doctor would reccomend (apart from sam and kenders) and some of us have used the NHS as a direct result of strongman/powerlifting, thing/JC/myself all spring to mind

I agree with this point.

The heavy guy obviously has some problems. I doubt I could even get to that weight in the first place. I eat as hard as I can all day every day and it's taken me about 4 years of doing this (3 sedentary years at that) to get to between 14 and 15 stone from 12 1/2 stone.
