Yes, I still walk around the gym dressed like Superman when no one sees me…
A1. Power Cleans, 5-5-5-5-5-5
61kg/5, 70/5, 79/5, 84/5, 89/5, 93kg/5 PB! (+4kg)
A2. HSPU with + Rom, Wave Training 2*7-5-3:
0cm/7, 10cm/5, 15cm/3, 10cm/7, 15cm/5, 30cm/3
B. HSPU Max Xtra Rom:
40cm/1, 50cm/F?, 50cm/F? *Can’t physically get down there, 1-2 cm lacking.
So what do we do when we are unhappy with a relationship not working out perfectly? I took it like any man would and drank my self to sleep for 3 consecutive days. Friday just one bottle of wine, Saturday closer to two, and yesterday there was some moron bringing a ”Paleo Tequila” bottle to Meggs 30th’s party. Moron obviously being me and moron obviously had a great time until late in the night and more like passed out on top of the cover to his bed than fell asleep.
Yup, felt like a prince today obviously.
Power Cleans was actually easy. Broadening of the feet at heavy weights is mandatory, (and unwanted for ofc), but think I can easily get around 100kg for 5!
While struggling to find motivation for my training after the Games, I actually looked through some old training note books and came over an old favourite programming of mine, the Wave Loading!
Idea is to neurologically prepare the muscles with one lighter wave, still needs to be challenging, and then by that make the heavier sets of the second round harder. This can be done in different rep schemes, 3-2-1 for pure strength for example, and I chose this version since I want my repetitive strength to increase. Might be working a little too much towards hypertrophy with these numbers, but that’s ok..
HSPU with this version was fun. I have never tried higher than 20cm before, that I can remember anyway, and was surprised how easy the +50 felt. More flexibility and I could do more. Now I agree with my friends saying this is kind of an stupid exercise without a real purpose, but sometimes a man should be allowed to just do things for fun as well!
Meant to do some conditioning after the strength, but considering how nauseous I got by just doing 5’s of PC’s, I guess I was lucky to be out of time…
