Daily updated training info + stuff #AKtraining

23 March 2017

Nice day today which makes up for a dreadful yesterday. Seem to have lost site of when this period of training has been going on for, but today started to feel that I’m getting fitter. Need to increase my speed on the runner, and working on running 1km at 11kph then 12km for another km, them back to 11kph, finishing on 13kph for last 500 metres.

The Day's Training

  • Run 5km 26min
  • Bench 75kg 5x3
  • Bench wide 60kg 5x5
  • Squat low 80kg 5x5
  • Press 60kg 5x5
  • Forward Row 60kg 5x5
  • Deadlift 120kg 5x5

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

Notes

Piled on the weights a bit today, and deadlift of 120kg was the most I’ve deadlifted for a very long time, which felt cool. It reminded me how I used to do 100x100kg, which was doing a 100kg deadlift 100 times, which was cool and gave me wicked grip strength… right up until I got killer tendonitis!
