Wow. Many thanks to Scott Bird who has featured my blog on his website Straighttothebar. This was totally unexpected and has generated more traffic to my blog - pretty cool. Its a great site with loads of links for power training as well as bodybuilding. I've put a permanent link on the sidebar.
Trained well last night - as expected the goodmorning squats really took it out of me - even with just a light weight (60kg) I struggled with the last couple of reps trying to get my breath. I should be able to up that to 70kg next week now that I've broken myself in again with them.
Here's a couple of pics of low box squat with bands:
Fell asleep in the recliner watching Criminal Intent after having done some yoga stretches on the floor - could easily take a nap this afternoon. I'm sore today around the obliques from the decline russian twists.
Bench with minibands @45% of 1rm from Tuesday 8x3reps (fast/min rest)
Elbows out lat face pull 3x10
Stiff arm pulldown 3x10
Benchers Extentions 3x10
No accessory work!
Tomorrow morning I have DARC (Donvale Adult Riders Club). Leigh thinks this is some kind of riding for the impaired, like a disabled riders club or something. I know I'm not an equestrian champion but....... anyway, he's never seen me riding. They're having an instructor that I don't like for the show jumping so I guess I'll give that a miss and just stick with dressage - practice my 'staying on' skills.
The weekend also brings with it the pager - uck! So I'll need to be done at ARC by 12.00 in case I get paged. In amongst all this I have to find time to clean the BBQ as Leigh has offered to cook some 'dead animals' for us on the barbie and bring a movie to watch - a romantic one he says - I think I'm being duped!
Mothers day Sunday and the girls are taking me out for brunch - that'd be because neither can get up early enough to make me breakfast in bed, I mean at 19 and 15 you'd think they'd have the 'making breakfast thing' down pat..... besides I don't fancy the girls coming up jumping all over the bed and discovering Leigh under the doona somewhere.......
No P1's next week - yay! New laptop expected to arrive Monday or Tuesday... must start thinking about ordering a deadlift suit..... Right now.... time to eat again.
