Pat G's battle log. Hammer Bros workout.

Recommended Posts

Dude , you are like a super hero .

Haha, thanks but unfortunately not true. completely human, and a tired one at that.

long weekend with the little one unwell enough to camp out in the living room and only sleep bits and pieces.

BONUS: got to play bass twice at church on sun, beautiful.

that and yesterday's sun made up for it.

Sneaky pushups on sunday accomplished.

Today MON 21 MAY

SQUAT:

@50kg: 10

@60kg: 10

@95kg: 5, 5, 3, 1, 0

woopsie daisies

Bench:

@60kg: 10

@82.5kg: 5, 5, 3, 2, 0

woopsie daisies again

Cleans:

@30kg: 10

@35kg: 5

@40kg: 5, 5, 5

I'll attribute the woopsie daisies to general tiredness and lack of rest time. Also, I think i may have to ask a doctor about these headspins during training sessions, they aren't exactly going away, nor are they only appearing when i do the Valsalva hold breath thing.

What's up with all these bum knees on your continent....

I can't remember, have you incorporated running/sprinting this often before, or is this totally new? You're super consistent, that's pretty awesome.

Have a good workday!

This is the first time i've consistently sprint trained since i stopped playing rugby 4+ years ago, not as consistent as i wanted to be, twice a week. Workday so far is pleasant, thanks.

Nice work on those squats :) OHP is a cruel mistress, loves putting mortals in their place! After doing those cleans, you get a pass on DLs.

You make me feel like a lazy slob every time you post your 100+ pushup counts!

Don't feel lazy, you aren't chasing a 3.61% gap between the weight lifted of the shuttle atlantis. I'll stop this madness once the challenge is over.

Yeah nah. That was the gap between the two squads trying to get to the full weight. Each squad is at around 60% of the total 2,030 tons and only 8 days left.

@102.5: 5, 5, 4

Rows

damn these make my shoulders hurt, have to switch to underhand grip to even finish.

@40kg: 10

@60kg: 5, 5, 5, 5, 5

Cleans:

working on snapping elbows up + explosive hips, seems to be ok, but too tired to get any full working sets in.

@40kg: 10

@60kg: 5

Rows hurt shoulders? Are you doing pendlay? I don't think I even feel my shoulders doing these, back and biceps is where I feel it, and my chest where the bar hits :P Actually, lately with my weight I've been feeling my hams, glutes and core too, because to hold relatively still they need to be locked. Where are you pulling the bar to? I hit my chest around nipple height.

Respect on the cleans! I'm pretty sure I cheated when I did mine the other day. I was doing a row to curl. And after all that work, I'd be damn tired too!

Why're you still pushing 60KG on OHP? You've been at that for a while now, right? Don't wait for me to catch up, I'll be a while!

Aha! This friday, was the first time I finished out strong on the OHP. I'll be going up next time.

I trained at a different gym, and I got a form tip on my squat from a passing bro, apparently, my feet weren't evenly pointed out when I wasn't paying attention to them.

EDIT:

PUshups yesterday 3x30

Also, the barbell rows make sore, the back of my shoulder directly above my armpit and then moving above my shoulder blades. Rotator cuffs glancing at a Wiki.
