    Congratulations bro. All the best for the next step
  11. Idle ramblings and observations.

    Today. Smith machine bench (with bands) 8x3 80, 80, 80, 80, 85, 85, 85, 85 60 seconds rest between sets Unsupported neutral grip dumbell press 3x10 14, 14, 14 superset with around the world 3x12-15 10kg oly plate 90 seconds between sets Hang clean 4x10 55, 55, 55, 55 2 minutes rest between sets Incline external rotation 4x12 8kg superset with incline dumbell flyes 3x10 26kg 90 seconds rest between sets. Single cable pushdowns 100 reps each arm, no rest.
  12. Anyone know about Army/NZDF training?

    As for the 2.4km run, just get out there and run, like Bruizer said. Be aware that you will drop at least 20 seconds in Waiouru because of the high altitude. I ran a 8.30 on induction day in Hamilton, 8.54 for the EFL in Basic, and a 8.31 for my best RFL. The highest in the Coy. was 8.16, though this chick in the intake before us ran a 100s club (male time) which is godlike.
  13. Anyone know about Army/NZDF training?

    @Bruizer I marched out from AARC 393 last week, and about to start Combat Corps Training down in Burnham. I got seleted for that intake within a week from my interview, which was insane. (The NZDF is going through a recruiting shortage) Also, my wrist didnt give me any issues during the course, though lots of other dudes got discharged due to injuries. If you have any questions about Basic, I'd be more than happy to answer them. Cheers
  14. Idle ramblings and observations.

    Today. Box squat (paused) 10x2 100, 100, 110, 110, 120, 120, 120, 130, 130, 130 60 seconds rest between sets Deficit snatch grip deads 3x8-10 120, 130, 140 superset with swiss ball hamstring curl 3xamrap 90 seconds rest Smith machine hip thrust 4x10 100kg in plates on all sets, 2 minutes rest Standing leg curl 3x10 superset with dumbell RDL 3x10 28kg bells on all sets, 90 seconds rest between sets. Hex bar farmers carry (long ways) 4x 75kg, 75kg, 80kg, 80kg weight of plates only as I don't know how heavy the bar is. Approximately 20m there and back. 2 minutes rest between sets. Today was a day of firsts for me. I trained in knee sleeves for the first time ever! This was to see if I could combat the achy joints this cold/flu has inflicted on me. So far, so good. Felt good squatting. I used chalk for the first time ever to do the farmers carry. Because I'm using the bar long ways and not on the handles, it's slippery as. But not with liquid chalk, stuff was awesome and no mess on the floor. Also used a belt on squats and deads for the first time in as long as I can remember. Not a leather one but a shaped neoprene/nylon combo. A bit softer than my old leather one was, but i feel this let's me activate core for stability. I've been doing squats and deads for years without one so my lower back and core have had to work hard.
