I've been feeling like shit. Throbbing headache, nausea and COMPLETE lack of appetite.

1 x 100kg
1 x 110kg
1 x 120kg

Fat Gripz Deadlift
9, 5, 4 x 55kg (60sec rest)

By now I was feeling dizzy and wanting to puke so these didn't go as expected. (Wanted 3 x 10.)

Travelling. Sickness. Barely eating eating at all. You know, the fun stuff.

I'm feeling better now but my sleep's all out of whack and I'm going to get that sorted before I continue training.

Rest.




08/05/11

Foam and lax rolled thoroughly before this workout. What a world of difference it makes.

DE Box Squat
Every 60sec:
10 x 2 x 92.5kg

Smooth and fast.

Box Squat (belt)
2 x 100kg
2 x 110kg
2 x 120kg
2 x 130kg

Easy.

DE Sumo Deadlift (belt)
Every 45sec:
8 x 1 x 110kg

I feel like I need more practice deadlifting with a belt, so I'm going to use one for my DE work.

GHD Glute Ham Raise

GHD Russian Twist
3 x 15 x 45lb (60sec rest)
