Well from work at least. Two weeks at home, sleeping, eating, training.....
Talking of the latter, have had a good week. Despite the pain in my hip, I had a good squat session on Monday. As the pin height gets lower for the partials I can really feel it working in my hips and glutes.
Some niggling joint pain in my elbow on Tuesday night - well not so much pain as an aching feeling... George suggested I might be coming down with the flu or such. Or perhaps I need to supplement with zinc and magnesium. I am seriously going to have to get myself a supplement sponsor!! Any sponsor! Someone to chip in the airfare for the nationals... some new Inzer lifting suits.... ahhh dreaming again.
A couple of visits to Andrea (Chiro) have started to sort out my shoulder problem and I even managed a massive 20lb overhead press - whoo-hoo! LOL I'm happy to be making some progress with this. At least I am dumbell pressing much better than a month ago. Still sticking with the close grip bench press for now tho' I want to protect my shoulder a little longer.
Wed night - rest.
Thursday - at Doherty's. Bought a four month membership off a lady who was traveling to Europe for 6 months - bargain price. Trained back - bodybuilder style:
Lat pulldowns 8 reps @ 40,40,50,60,60,60.
chest supported row 8 reps @ 30, 40, 50 and 60.
Reverse grip pulldown machine 8 reps @ 20kg,40kg,60kg,70kg,75kg.
Dumbbell rows 8 reps @ 12.5kg, 17.5kg, 22.5kg, 22.5kg.
Then 10 mins or so on the treadmill waiting for Angela to show so we could sign her membership over.
Tonight - rest
Tomorrow - Deadlifting at D's with Leigh
Sunday - rest
Monday - squat......
and the cycle starts over....
Sent an email off to Steve at Southern Powerlifting, introducing myself and making some inquiries about joining their club and federation. I think this will be my last year with CAPO.
On a lighter note: I chucked a couple of 'pre-packaged' ceasar salad things in the shopping trolley at the weekend - always on the lookout for simple, healthy-ish lunch things. YUMMMM! These Mrs Crockets ceasar salads were DELISH!! Anyway - after googling them and finding their website, in the hope that they sell the dressing as a separate item (then I can make HUGE salads...) I left some feedback on their website saying how much I loved their ceasar salad and asking if the dressing was available for sale (I wouldn't normally do this - you can see how much I liked it....) So later in the afternoon I got a call from them (From Queensland!) - thanking me for the feedback... unfortunately they don't sell the dressing but the guy said he would pass my great comments on to their marketing dept. What a hoot, I didn't think anyone actually read those feedback things! Well anyway here's a plug for them MRS CROCKETS CEASAR SALAD ROCKS !!! Maybe they will sponsor me ?! LOL I think they will become a part of my 'diet' while I try to drop 5kgs over the next few months...
