Daily updated training info + stuff #AKtraining

26 January 2017

Sometimes fate steps in when you’re training, and today on the way to the gym I remembered I’d not brought any shorts. The reason for this is maybe due to being ‘on it Andy’ as I’ve become to be known here abouts, training, working, climbing, kind of ‘getting after it’. Of course I’m not on it at all, I’m just doing too much, and most days I forget something, a towel, my computer, my wallet. I was also probably a bit distracted as the piece I wrote for UKC seems have created quite a lot of friction, both on the forum (mainly the same people) and through emails. As is often the case on forum’s you get a lot of pushback, will those who agree with you prefer to use email (you can judge for yourself why that is). I’m a person full of doubts and notions, and so having what I wrote (maybe I should have taken a month to write it, not an hour!) scrutinised and questioned makes me question fundamental thoughts about myself. This of course is a very healthy thing, I guess the same way I’m going to the gym to stress my body to make a better physical me, I’m trying to do that with my own views on everything. I have no interest in making other people train by writing this, it’s just a tool to increase my discipline, and the same goes with what write - it’s personal. Anyway I guess this has made me even more distracted. Or maybe I’m just forgetful at 7am!
So I trained in my jeans, which meant I had to nix the 10km today.

The Day's Training

  • Bench:
  • 5x5x70kg =1750kg
  • 5x5x60kg =1500kg
  • 5x5x50kg =1250kg
  • 5x5x40kg = 1000kg
  • 10x5x30kg =750kg
  • total= 6250kg
  • Bench wide 5x5x50kg = 1250kg
  • Pull down 10x5x50kg = 2500kg
  • Clean and Press 5x5x40kg = 1000kg
  • Military press 5x5x30kg = 750kg

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

Notes

I guess even though I ended up shifting a ton of weight (11750kg) I felt that today was a bit of a rest day, and maybe a real man would have done it in his pants!
