Monday 21st May

Hmm, I somehow managed to tweak something in my lower back while bending down to get something out of the bottom tray of my fridge there on Saturday. F*ck sake like. I must be getting old or something. I can feel it on the bottom of my right spinal erector and am restricted when i get to parallel in a squat.

It wasn't too bad though after I warmed up but I still wasn't going to do anything serious. It's not major so I won't be getting it looked at. I picked up some anti-inflammatories and am knocking them back as well as applying heat and doing a spot of stretching with anything that targets the area.

All going to plan a medium session on Wednesday, a relatively heavy session on Friday and back to new program on Monday.

Split Squats
5x5@40kg

RDL
2x6@40kg
3x6@50kg

Press
2x5@40kg
3x5@50kg

Pendlay row
6@40kg
3x6@50kg

I wouldn't have been able for a proper session anyway. The sweat was pumping out of me from hoochin' at the weekend.

Ugh woke up this morning after 10 hours sleep with full blown muthaf*ckin' aids. Felt like death. I wasn't going to go training until Ste calling me yella and the good weather changed my mind. I'm happy I did in the end though. Felt good to sweat it out of me. Which I did because ECB was a godamn sauna this evening. On the plus side my back is fine now. Was only a niggle really in the end.

Power Snatch
2x3@40kg
2x3@50kg
2x3@60kg
2x2@65kg
2x1@70kg

Back Squat
2x5@60kg
2x5@70kg
2x5@80kg
2x5@90kg

Bench
5@40kg
3@60kg
3@70kg
3x2@80kg
Max reps @ 60kg, 15 reps

Not too weak from lack of training lately. Should be good to go Monday.

The split clean was v.weird at first I tried a few deep catches but that's just not gonna work. I can't maintain my upper back position if I do that. They were alright when I power splitted. I'll be able to lift more than I powerclean alright but not by any huge amount. I'll see how it goes anyway from next week when I get some instruction on them.


F*ck that sh*t they were savage tonight. I think it was just the first time doing them they felt awful. The split snatch was the same. I was catching them around parallel or just above tonight and no loss of upper back. Was godamn hard standing up with them though so I'm back to my original problem of my legs being too godamn weak. I didn't even have to think about the pull it was so easy getting it to the required height to get under it.

Pause front squats because of Klokov and that fact I won't be doing them in new program. There is no real point since they are as assistance exercise for lifts that I don't do anymore. Back squats for general strength and split squats for specificity.

Finished up with a little superset. I think I may have set a world record. I was going to set some more but I was tired and went home.

New program from Monday.

About 6 hours of football, hurling, bouncey castle, trampolining and eating absolute rubbish at my nephews birthday. Those little bastards do this every other week and I roll in busting heads with no specific training. I'm so godamn Elite.
