  1. Idle ramblings and observations.

  2. Idle ramblings and observations.

    Haven't been posting in here for a while, with exception of a total break for the last 2 weeks I've only been getting 1-2 sessions in a week for the last few months. Today was this...... Deads 4x5 Front squat 3x10 Hip thrust 3x8 Single arm suitcase carry 3x each arm Weights were nothing special. Suitcase carries were about 15m each way.

    A little bit. Just haven't been updating on here, only getting one or two sessions in a week. Letting some niggles settle down. Busy with the silly season and trips away with the kids. 😁
  4. Ohjoshua's Intense city, lets ramp it up.

    Touch and go trying for some speed, bounce a little excessive. Like I said I'm no expert, but it almost looks like 2 movements. Hinging at the hips, hips going back slightly almost like an RDL going down. Looked like you were rounding your back slightly and losing tension at the bottom of the reps. Your glutes drop then you squeeze your shoulders back and glutes up. I've been told to build tension and brace at the start of the rep. I find touch and go reps keep me tight the entire rep. You could try doing a complete reset/pause at the bottom of each rep? Squat University and Dr John Rusin have some good info and clips on their pages.

    I also jarred right at the start which I've been told I shouldn't do, instead I was told to take the slack out and build tension. There's some good clips on testosterone nation on deadlifting.

    Mate I'm far from an expert in technique. It does look to me that you might be hinging at the hips a bit much. Someone like @beastbuilder would know if he still checks in here. Tried to upload a video of me doing touch and go deads, beltless @200kg, I'm probably rounding my back a bit much to be honest. VID_104250310_135612_927.mp4

    2/12/20 Deads and bench 120kg x5 160kg x5 160kg x5 3x3 @180kg 60kg x5 70kg x5 80kg x5 90kg 3x3 2nd set of deads was meant to be 140kg but I was too busy talking and not paying attention to my maths. All deads were beltless today

    Yeh pretty much. Just trying to get some volume at a low weight and focus on my form a bit. Struggling with finding a good groove with squats, have been for ages. Depth is not there, so doing pauses on the sets of 8. I'm planning on having a crack at my first ever powerlifting comp next year and my squat depth needs work. Kinda just making it up as I go along.

    26/11/20 Deads 120kg x5 140kg x5 160kg x5 3x3 @ 180kg Bench 60kg x5 70kg x5 80kg x5 3x3 @ 90kg Getting done what I can when I can, life is nuts at the moment
  10. Idle ramblings and observations.

    18/11/20 First foray in to the gym for the best part of 3 weeks. Did some Squats and bench, nothing too nutty. Squats 3x8 @100KG 3x3 @140kg Bench 3x5 @ 60kg, 70kg, 80kg 3x3 @ 90kg Everything felt ok. Right knee/hammy/calf still a bit niggly but not too bad.

    Still fucken crook! Struggling with the head cold from hell, but at least now my head no longer feels like it's going to explode and I'm not constantly sneezing. Plant to at least get a squat session in this week.

    Nice benching! Gotta be happy with that.
  13. Idle ramblings and observations.

    W12, D2 Bench 60kg x5 70kg x5 80kg x5 95kg 3x3 Seated flye machine 3x10 Incline Squeeze press 3x10 Low to high cable raise 3x10 followed by an AMRAP ladder set. Bench was good, bit sore after deads the day before though. Had a spotter for the last set of 3 but didn't need them, it actually went better than my first set lol.

    W12, D1 Deads 120kg x5 140kg x5 160kg x5 3x3 @ 190kg Dumbell row 3x10 Straight arm pulldowns 3x10 Incline Dumbell curl 3x12 Procrastination level = expert!! Took a lot of effort to drag my tired old arse to the gym after a couple of main days at work. First set of 190kg felt heavy as f*ck but the last set flew up. Not sure what was going on, took a bit of time to get my head space right. Hit my numbers though so definitely a win
