This thread inspires me :) Great goals.

 

I take zero responsibility for any silliness that results from this "inspiration"...

Week 1

Sun 12 Aug:

 

Due to a scheduling issue, I had to do my Monday workout today. We have a guy coming in tomorrow to insulate the roof of our gym (which will be amazing in summer, just inconvienient for my workout).

Training:

Max effort DL.

 

-Rack pull from knee: Top single of 195kg (only 5kg under my PR) - also didn't re-injure my ribs - much winning.

-Squats vs 10kg chains: top triple of 120kg with immaculate technique

-Squats with SSB: 5s with 80kg

-RDLs: 8s at 85kg

-2 different types of knee raises for abz

 

Conditioning:

-None today... it IS technically a rest day, but I'll be able to squeeze it in tomorrow.

 

All the other Stuff:

-All good with the supplements.

-Russian: Did a fair bit during the morning.

Ну, вы были так заняты! Жаль слышать, что ваша собака съела ваш hackysack... правильно, вам надо было дать ей сыр. :)

Week 2

Mon 13 Aug:

 

Gah! What a day! I did a shit load of... gasp...manual labour today. The bloke turned up to insulate out gym and it was a long day of work - I ended up having breakfast at about 4pm.

 

main-qimg-116199a0d903889016b3aabffe4300

 

Training:

None - see Sunday for the stuff I was supposed to do today. I will say this though... the rack pulls have given me some good back DOMs - to be fair, I haven't pulled anything over 130kg for quite a while now due to injuries, so 195kg was probably a bit of a stretch.

 

I did have 10 mins to fit in a little bench pressing (I've been doing this on my dedicated lower body day to increase the frequency and see of there is any difference). Triples at 90kg.

 

Conditioning:

- I did NOT get this done today so I'll do a double day tomorrow... the conditioning must be done!

 

All the other Stuff:

-All good with the supplements - even if they were all taken together in what was basically a meal.

-Russian: Nope.

Good grief... I actually know enough Russian to get the gist of this! The dog is my nemesis at the moment... anything I leave within gobbling distance gets gobbled.

Thanks. It's a good cartoon... a little crude but in a clever kind of way...

2 options. Hackysack with the dog (gently). Learn to do a backflip.

 

Kicking the dog may be an option... she's quite squishy...much like a good hackysack...

 

But let's not get crazy with flipping... Imma fat powerlifter... my personal gravity seems to be much more than the standard 9.8m/s^2...

Ура! Успехи! Don't know the Russian words, but: systematic exposure to a language is hella useful for reinforcement. Мне надо опять смотреть русские мултфильмы на Youtube. Они мне помогают привыкать слышать русский язык. 

 

Ah, the joys of dog ownership... What about handstands/ handstand pushups, if your personal gravity is wonky?

I did pick up quite a lot when we visited Moscow... but I was unprepared for how fast Russian is spoken. My tutor has been increasing her pace recently too and it exponentially increases the difficulty.

She is quite a challenge. Bassetts are well known for their stubborness.

 

Re: handstands... I wont bore you with all the details... but most of my joints are wonky/broken. My left shoulder has a nasty habit of dislocating when the arm is extended overhead. Its a good excuse to go easy on overhead pressing and oly lifting

Just stop being broken. Obviously.

HEY! congrats on that awesome bench PR!! no abdominal pain?

 

It's only painful with squatting now - just because of where the belt presses in on the bottom ribs (Dr Google has diagnosed an intercostal strain/tear... 3-6 weeks to heal and I'm currently at 3 weeks). With benching, I can wear the belt lower. Also... sneezing is no longer a traumatic experience...

Week 2

Thur 16 Aug:

 

Training:

Nope. Rest day.

 

Conditioning:

- 250 kettlebell swings in 17 mins. 20kg KB. Not a cracking pace, but I'm still sweating 60mins later. It's a brilliant exercise and there is anecdotal stories of Russian Oly lifters doing 500-1000 swings per day for GPP which allowed them to eat ALL THE FOODZ without putting on weight.

 

All the other Stuff:

-All good with the supplements (still have a few to take but I'm on track).

-Russian: Nope.

 

GOOD NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!  My new hacky sacks have arrived early, so now I can get schwifty again (starting tomorrow). I'll adjust the challenge goals with the remaining days.
