  1. Idle ramblings and observations.

  2. 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.
