12/01/11

Box Squat
2 x 50kg
3-4 x 2 x 60kg
2 x 65kg
2 x 70kg
2 x 60kg + one set of chains
2 x 70kg + one set of chains
2 x 80kg + one set of chains
2 x 90kg + one set of chains
2 x 100kg + one set of chains

Doing proper box squats for the first time. For future reference: Feels like 60kg, 65kg, 70kg (plus chains) is the way to go for my first three week wave of dynamic work (if that ever happens).

Here's a video of some of the squats that I posted on EliteFTS, hoping for some critique.

Front Squat
8 x 0:20/0:10 x 30kg
-
10/10/10/10/8/8/8/8
-
72

Just read Dan John's book and wanted to give this a try. Not bad on the lungs, but my legs are WRECKED.

31/01/11 - 08/02/11

Rest.

I seriously fucked up my hamstrings doing those HE+GHRs. The next day wasn't bad, but for a couple of days after that I literally walked around like a retard because I couldn't extend my legs. I can extend my legs by now, but I'm having some ROM issues at the moment.

Can't get into a proper squat or deadlift position without my hamstrings lighting up. Did a some kettlebell swings today to get the blood flowing. Hoping to get back into the gym in a couple of days.

Also, I think I'm getting ready to slowly start easing into some shoulder stuff. The shoulder feels good, but I'm going to play it safe and give it a week or two.
