Oops, has it really been that long since my last post.....
"Blokes" night at Shaza's place on Sat night... joke... Shaza, Jo and me... Beer, pizza and shoot-em-up movies... :-) Bloody hot night - high 30's.
Sunday morning, went out for my first ride on Mojo in what must be at least six months. Rode down to the river and let him paddle his feet. I hadn't intended going out for that long but ended up being about 4 hours.... beautiful day for it, somewhat cooler than yesterday.
Inner thighs sore on Monday, still, off to Doherty's to squat with the boys.... and another newcomer, Cliff - big boy too, bodybuilding background, wants to do powerlifting for a year 'to grow' (like he needs it - LOL)
After warmups, squatted 3 sets of 5 at 80kg and 3 sets of 3 at 90kg. (no suit)
Doherty's have a new glute/hamstring raise - played around in that for a few sets of 12. DId I ever know about that the next day - hamstrings soooo sore!
Wed - appointment with Andrew Lock - Physio, for a nagging shoulder injury (Man, I am falling apart!!) Posterior impingement - or some such - anyway it's muscular and should be easy to treat with some massage and exercises (with a 1kg dumbell - do they make them that small?)
Benched that night - yes I was allowed so - so long as it was nothing that hurt.....
5 sets of 5 at 50kg and 3 sets of 3 at 60kg.
(if I do the big arch and bench low it doesn't hurt the shoulder.
Tbar row: 20, then 40kg - 4 sets of 8
Chest supp row: 60kg 6 sets of 8 (varied grip every 2 sets)
Tricep over head rope press: 100, then 120lb 4 sets of 8
Thursday (roasting hot day 40+ c) Leigh came over for dinner. I made my first chicken and pumpkin risotto - not bad. Late night - not a lot of sleep.... sooo hot!
Deadlift: 80, 100 (2 sets of 5) 120kg 5 sets of 3
Cable pull thru's: 100 4 sets of 10
Reverse Hypers: 20kg 4 sets of 15
Cable woodchops: 80 4 sets of 8
Weekend plans to go rockclimbing with Jo have been postponed...... never mind.
