In a change to the new normal, today was PT day… I have reverted to the long held habit of having PT on a Tuesday! It is only a temporary revert mind you… Today seemed to be legs again and some high reps, because Matt is mean! Ok no he isn’t he just knows me… Read More Project 44: Day 21 legs in defiance of covid-19
Actually…it wasn’t a yoke, it was a sort of odd shaped squat bar with dangly down bits on each side but it was the closest I was going to get… Mind you, before I yoked, I farmers walked! Well…I suppose it was more like a frame carry really, but anyway…I walked up and down carrying… Read More Project 44: day 20 it’s a yoke!
Yes, you guessed it…more sled drags…slightly lighter today as I wanted to work on speed. So 1 run (there and back) at 135kg, 1 at 150kg and 2 at 160kg! I even got mark dragging sleds 🙂 and he took a picture of me doing it…I am going to be “brave” and post the picture… Read More Project 44: day 19 dragging stuff about again…
Today on honour of leg day I decided to wear all of the colours! Look these were the legs and this was the top… This t shirt is definitely not lying either…I definitely have thick thighs!! Very Useful they are too… they helped me get to an new squat PB! 80kg for 3 reps 😁😁… Read More Project 44: Day 18 Leg day!
The gym at the weekend is odd! Well, no actually, the gym is exactly the same but it contains people I don’t know. Not even to nod to! Not even the staff!! However, I suspect if I continue to go in at roughly the same time at the weekend this might change! It’s still my… Read More Project 44: day 4 Leg day
Day two of project 44 involved personal training in which Matt the trainer decided that a sled-push / kettlebell swing / goblet squat followed by some more sled pushing and pulling would be exactly what I needed to wake up my morning! To some extent he wasn’t wrong…I did wake up. It was quite an… Read More Project 44: day 2 – pushing and swinging!
I am going to have to get to grips with the terminology of this sport…strongman(woman) is not going to cut it for much longer… I have started the training… I started, with the help of Matt, with shoulders. Shoulders are going to be my biggest weakness, so it seemed like a good place to start!… Read More Strongman(woman) training…progress report
So, after enthusiastically announcing that I was going to do kettlebells every day this month, I have unceremoniously abandoned it in favour of finally rehabbing my shoulder properly! I have had shoulder “issues” on and off for quite a long time, I have written about it on here before, probably 3 or 4 years ago… Read More The endless tales of changing plans…
I haven’t done nothing. I have done a lot of the normal activities that I do, some walking, some running, some dancing some gymming. It has just not been as dedicated as it normally is. Gym sessions have been somewhat minimal (apart from PT) and running has been less frequent than it should have been.… Read More Reboot Days 139-145: A nothing week
Well…time and otters have stolen some days from me and I am two weeks from my last post…again 😱 but last week I promised a new schedule of Mondays and Fridays for posts on here 🙂 Mondays will be a round up of the last week and Fridays will be about something exciting exercise related… Read More Reebot days 125-138: the last two weeks in pictures 🙂
