Not at all!

I use 30kg (66lb) 'bells for the deadlifts, and 20kg(44lb) 'bells for the renegade rows.

Remember this is not lift - pause- drop- reset - lift ....., this is lift - drop touch - lift.... So its important to maintain perfect technique at a smooth brisk tempo with absolutely no rest within the set, at top or bottom of the movement.

Same with renegade rows- you are looking to maintain as static a posture as possible, whilst alternating the rows smoothly at brisk, but controlled pace. You should feel the transfer of forces through your abs as you go.

All I can say is ouch. I ache alot. It was kind of like a CF workout in that respect though, just start and don't stop because if you do you won't want to start again.

Yep If you get the tempo right, and really shift your a$$ from exercise to exercise, you should have found the circuit to have taken 2.5 - 3 mins. I find that piggy backing the DL's with the rows is a particularly evil progression. Every time I do this workout I ask myself 'why am i not splitting these up with the push ups, but why make things easy when you can give yourself pain?

UPDATE:

Training going slow. Did start running with my wife at the indoor track on Tuesdays and Thursdays to supplement my weight lifting as had not been back to BJJ since January. However in April I started feeling some chest pains and because I have hereditary high blood pressure and because my grandfather had 2 heart attacks (1st valve, 2nd killed him) and my father had 3 (3rd triple by pass), I was not taking any risks.

Tuesday morning was Day #1 of stress test. This morning was Day #2 of stress test. I will now have to wait a minimum of 5 working days to find out the results. While I can do everything I still have a slight chest discomfort that I want to be sure what it is and what steps to take.

This puts a damper on things in my personal life. I had applied for the Auxiliary RCMP and went through the beginning stages of interviews, ride-a-longs an such and was selected as a candidate. Next Thursday I am scheduled for their PARE (fitness program) which I know I could do easily however because I need a medical clearance I may not be able to go. I have a Friday appointment with my doctor to see what he says. If a go then after the PARE on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 AM to 7:30 PM I go in for training; including weapons (handgun/shotgun) and being tazered and pepper sprayed. I hope I'm not sidelined.

Earlier in the year my basement flooded; twice. I had problems with my new truck and it was inoperable for 33 days. My garage door broke; twice. My fence in the back blew down. And with some other things my stress levels have been through the roof. This I think has only added to things because I eat healthy; rarely drink, don't smoke, exercise, don't add salt, and generally a health freak. This just sucks.

Been knocking down the stresses one at a time. Garage fixed. Truck fixed. Regarded property where water leak came in. In processes of regarding whole house. Need still to do fence. Pool Table company came yesterday to disassemble my table. Basement getting renovated today, tomorrow and possibly Friday ... slowly but surely.

Once renovations done I'm back to working out; of course with clearance from my Doctor; but I'm keeping positive. Just proves no matter how fit you are, your genes play a huge part.

I wouldnt want to second guess anything bro', but there are plenty of causes of chest pain, and stress related pain, that are not linked to heart disease.

Anxiety attacks brought on by the stress at the moment will cause chest tightness/pain.

It could also be psycho-sematic- you are stressed, you know your family cardiac history, and suddenly you are creating symptoms to fit the negative potential in your situation.

Wait and see Bro', could very likely be nothing at all to worry about

That is my hopes Cord. When I am working hard say doing my regrading of my house; or doing some exercise, I feel good and strong and no chest pains.

Part of the stress test was walking the tread mill. I first got on and my heart beat because nervous was around 93 bpm and my blood pressure was 160/100; not good. I started walking the first level and immediately I got into rhythm and got my heart rate to 67 bpm. Blood Pressure taken on start of second level where it is inclined and you must walk faster and I was at 200/100 (he said normal) and my heat rate went to entered the high 70's. Third level more incline and really walking. Heart rate now in the 90's and trying to get into a rhythm and control my heart rate; working well. On the third level they want you to make it to 85% of your rate (don't understand this) as this is when they inject you with the nuclear stuff so when they scan you later it shows up. I exceed the time it takes and I'm not at 85% in fact I start going down for for blood pressure to 140/90, my heart rate at 112 bpm and I was at 83% and it dropped to 81%. They waited and I just kept trying to calm myself and the doctor asked, "and why are you here?". I asked him if he wanted me to run and he said I may have to. Finally at 83% again he told the nurse to inject me; I didn't get to the 85% until this was done and they were slowing things down. And I felt I recovered very fast. They then send you to eat something (muffin and chocolate milk) and within 45 minutes you are stuck in the machine to scan your heart for 20 minutes.

Day 2 was nothing. Went in and they injected me with stuff that goes straight to the heart muscle. They then sent me to McDonald's to eat some fatty food. I had a Egg McMuffin, 2 Hashbrowns and an Orange Juice. 1 hour later I am on the machine for 20 minutes again. Results in 5 working days. While eating I could feel the stuff in my heart making it flitter and stuff; very weird.

Hope all turns out okay.
