Daily updated training info + stuff #AKtraining

18 January 2017

Was really feeling it this morning when the alarm went off. Went to bed around 12pm, and having been down to the wall too, well it added up to a creaky body. Yet again my brain and body was asking for a rest day, but my will would not have it!

The Day's Training

  • Cross trainer 10km
  • Bench 5x5x60kg
  • Military press 5x5x40kg
  • Low Squat 5x5x60kg
  • One arm pull down 10x1x20kg
  • Pull down 20x1x40kg

Note:These numbers don't include warm up, which tend to be done at 25%, 50% and 75% of final weigh.

Notes

Not to hard a day, and always find the cross trainer an easy 10km, with the run or row hard in different ways. Weights were good, and did the military press by cleaning the bar from my waist instead of shoulder height, which I’ll build into a heavier compound exercise as I built up the weight from 40kg to 50kg, lifting from the ground (deadlift), then cleaning to the shoulder, then a military press, down behind the shoulder, back up again, the clean down to the ground. It’s a real gut buster (and heart buster) and I can only do it with a lightish weight at the moment if I’m to do a 5x5 set, mainly as I find the strain it creates on my system (heart and lungs) to painfull, but once mastered it’s a great exercise the body hard in a single exercise.
