I've been trying to pull myself together as well after:

1 broken toe
2 broken collar bones
1 appendicitis
1 sliced/diced ankle requiring stitches/antibiotics

All in the last 1.5 years or so....

Nice numbers though. *Great* squat. I'm glad to see you're back to raw.

ME Squat Day

I had a real good day today, I used 2 chains and the straight bar and worked up to 165kg of bar weight. A good strong lift too, I then backed off and did doubles with 120-125kg and worked back up to 155kg bar weight. Good strong squatting today, I got lots of quality sets in. I finished with heavy flags and RDLs.

This was strong and I think it’s a good movement for me. I then did chins and upper back stuff. I did an exercise called batwings I saw in a Dan John article, whoa my rhomboids were blown up!

Sweet PR! That's a great squat.

Does your kid ever distract you while you're lifting or are you too focused to notice?

so are these sets of 1 failure or are they just heavy singles? and could you explain to me what flags are.

Hey Dub

The kids are usually so well behaved, and will wait for me to do a set, sometimes they get a bit tired of being in the gym tho. But they do have a great "fenced" off play area and a tv/dvd player too, pretty cosy little area really.

HM911- these are heavy singles, the top sets tho would not be possible for doubles tho, yet. Flags are an ab exercise, easier to search dragon flags on youtube (I cant do it , at work right now). BTW I only clustered the sets at 150kg not all sets!!

Deadlift Day

I didn’t feel like pulling defecits today cos well, I hate em! So I pulled from the floor, wanted to see roughly where my pull is at. I hit a tough 207.5kg, I then backed off and clustered 8 reps with 180kg with 25-30 secs between reps. I need to get used to pulling heavy without contrast I think, so I’ll be doing that.ALOT. Finished with Banded GMs I was smoked!

Deadlift Day 21/10/11

Sumo Deadlift

1x1 170kg
1x1 190kg
1x1 207.5kg
8x1 180kg Clustered

Black and Red Band GMs

2x16
