invincible- that the true story about the regular guy who ended up quarterbacking the eagles right? I am looking forward to that, also the Gridiron Gang with the Rock. I love NFL, I played a little defensive line for the Colwyn Dragons back in the early 90's, tough game, definitely not 'Rugby with padding' like many British critics like to claim.

Regarding your hands, if you are serious about a 400lb deadlift (that is proper weight we are talking about- way out of my league for the forseeable future), i would strongly recommend ditching the gloves in favour of some chalk. The chalk will ease friction under pressure, gloves will 'grab' your skin and tear it away from you hands.
Good luck with what will be a very impressive achievement

Weekend
My last post regarding friday, I commented I was 'running on empty'- it was more than that. 1/2 an hour after making that post i came down with a nasty bug or virus that knocked me out till sunday night. made for a less than fun weekend off

Monday

Felt much better so off to the gym, though I didnt push too hard out of respect for my immune system.

Leg press 1x10 with 190kg, then 2x8 with 210kg
Smith chest press 10,8,9 with 95kg
Seated Row 11,9,8 with 200lbs
Dumbell shoulder press 12,8,6 with 25kg Dumbells
Shrugs 12,10,10 with 200lb

I was worried about overdoing things so eased off the weight a touch, dropped a set and worked hard on full range of movement and absolute concentration on every rep- what do you know, It was actually one of the nicest workouts so far!

tuesday

Alternated 3 mins heavy bag with 3 mins box step variations. 1 minute break inbetween each 3 min period, 4 sets of each, then 3x 200m sprints on the ergo rower.

This basic structure is fast becoming a favourite of mine. Finishing with a bit of HIIT on the rower leaves you absolutely wasted.

Correct on the movie but Vince Papale but was a wide receiver and on the specialties team (kick offs). Being a Rocky fan Cord, his team nicknamed him this though they never mentioned this in the movie, I read it in his bio.

Thanks for the advise on the chalk, I will certainly look into that.

Hope you are feeling better and glad you had a good workout when you recovered.

Wednesday

Now fully recovered, and taking the lessons learned on monday regarding rep focus ans ROM did the following, pausing 2 seconds at the bottom of every rep to negate stretch reflex and drive every rep from a 'dead' start.

Leg press 1x10 190kg 8,7,5 210kg
Smith Bench press 1x14 90kg 8,6,5 95kg
Shoulder Press 10,7,7,5 25kg dumbells
Seated Row 1x10 190lbs 8,8,6,5 200lbs
Shrugs 10,10,10,8 200lb
crunches 10,10,8,8 44lb plate held on forehead.

Best workout so far, really nailed the techniques, and the pause on each rep added a lot of intensity to each set.

Shock! as you know, I am not a big obsessor about bodyweight, but I for some reason decided to hop on the scales for the first time in many months. Last time I weighed myself I was 215lbs. I thought I had dropped more fat on account of dropping a trouser size again and getting more definition in my midsection, and was expecting to come in around 205-209. I came in at 198lbs

Skinny Cord. I put it down to all the skateboarding I am doing

Oh Cord you are a buggy whip now.

Tuesday, September 5, 2006

As Cord did I also weighed myself today and I'm at 191 lbs, though I will have to fight to keep this weight like no other. I've noticed I've been getting a little bigger as my dress shirts have been feeling tighter especially in the shoulder/arms (wear dress shirts to work).

Father came in from Ontario and is staying at my Grans (his mother's house). Stopped by prior to class for a quick visit and will stop by tomorrow with the family. Then off to class.

Class starts with a light jog around the gym and then we line up on the back walls for belt pulls. Across the gym and back while pumping the legs while your partner holds your belt to make it difficult. My partner is a big guy and he really works me and I do the same for him. It was almost just as much a workout holding this guy back. Then it is a conditioning drill where your partner uses palm strikes to your abs across the gym and you do it to him back. If it is light you say harder, if to hard you let them know. Being a "bloke" I really push it and on the last one I get one to the floating ribs that really makes me gasp for air. Then it is condition for the chest and we round house across the gym and then switch on the way back; again saying harder. I took a few hits that made me gasp for breath but I also gave a few stingers which he let me know about. Light stretching, some forms, one steps and then we did conditioning drills with leg kicks to the side of the knee/thigh area. You wanted to go hard enough but not enough to injure your partner. Then it was side kicks to the knees but this one was controlled. All the while if your partner dropped his hands while kicking you were to launch some shots at their jaw. Then class finished.

It was a good class for me and my kicking was bang on. Even in the round house drills I could have kicked head height and that is not very often. However that night my hamstring that connects to the glutious maximus was in pain so had to take some Extra Strength Ibuprofen.

Wednesday, September 6, 2006 - Week 412, Day 1089

Hurried home as I was to go out and meet with my buddy Mac for supper. He was already on his way to Gold's gym so there was no way I could catch up with him. He called and was lost so I Googled the location so he could get there.

Knew I had less then an hour to workout so really pushed things to get done so my warm up was short. 10 quick bench presses with 150 lbs and then some upper shoulder rotations and then hit the weights.

Barbell Bench Press = 237 lbs = 6/6/6/5/5
Barbell Seated Military Press = 150 lbs = 3
Barbell Seated Military Press = 145 lbs = 5/5/5/6
Barbell Upright Rows = 110 lbs = 4
Dumbbell Bent-Over Single-Arm Kickbacks = 79 lbs (per arm) = 10/10/10

Bench Press still not impressed but went up 3 reps over all. I was very explosive on these and it did feel good. I thought with the way things were going I'd be able to do more on the Military Press but I was wrong so had to drop it back down though on my last set I pumped out one more. The good thing was I stopped the momentum at 5 and usually it is hard to get going after that but I pushed things and got one more out of me ... and with good form and no cheating. Upright Rows however did not feel good in the shoulders so stopped it. I figured I had done enough with them so why push them anymore then I neeeded ... I listened to my body. Kick Backs ... the same as always however on the last set I should have stopped at 8 but I got them done but with less then perfect form.

Finished with a shower and headed into the big city to meet my buddy and we went for supper. We ate 20 wings each, I had a 9 ounce steak medium rare and he had a 16 ounce steak medium well done. Finished this off with some sweet chocolate, fudge ice cream and cake dessert, a couple of drinks and then called it a night. Supper was just over $100 for both of us and the waitress received a big tip as we seemed to get a lot of attention and extra service.

Class tomorrow should be Grappling so looking forward to this.

Now thats eating! I think your 191lbs is safe for a day or two at least

Thursday

shouldnt have trained today, but Den was due a workout so I did 'a little one' just to keep me warm in the air con'd room while she did her thing.

machine Leg press 1x15 320lbs 2x5 400lbs
Seated chest press machine 1x15 170lbs 8,5 with 210lbs
Seated row 1x10 190lbs 8,6 with 200lbs
Front raise 3x6 28kg

Nothing special, just did it for fun, and it was Den continues to improve which was the main focus of the session today. Heavy bag and rowing HIIT for me tomorrow.

As well I'm glad to hear that Deni is doing well. Look forward to further updates on her recovery plus your results from your sessions.

Any bad weight gained from eating well last night will be in the form of sweat tonight especially if we grapple.

Grappling day at school ... enough said. However I found class to be not long enough and nobody wanted to stay late to roll. Some new things to work on and can't wait till Wednesday of next week for another class.

Father came out from Mississauga, Ontario on Tuesday so Friday having him over for a BBQ so won't be able to work out. Saturday and Sunday I usually take off from working out to spend time with family and friends but who knows. Monday back to the grind.
