6 days rest - cautionary pause. last week thought I had aggravated the mesh over a repaired inguinal hernia. turns out it was just muscle strain in the area where the mesh just happened to be located. wife reports i'm losing some flab, which may indicate the visceral/subcutaneous stuff around that region is reducing. or not. wikipedia. a dr's worst friend.

return to gym activities

2.4kms run - 10m 15sec

circuit - pullup, dip, pushup, inverted row - 20-30 seconds rest between ex.
2 w/u sets
1st: 8,16,25,8 - a few minutes rest
2nd: 3,2,10,8 - a few minutes rest
3rd: 4,7,13,3 - a few minutes rest
4th: 3,3,7,3 - a few mins R
5th: 2,3,7,3

5x1 60kg push press - no idea why.

From Sat 9 Oct 10 - Thu 14 Oct 10

in hotel in Darwin, Northern Territory, Aus for work

did not take accurate records, and avoided computer after work was done.

swam twice a day for between 10 and 30 minutes. Darwin is hot and humid, and i'm not a very good swimmer. pool work was perfect for stress management (work related issues) and cooling down, as well as providing a challenge, as I found basics like 25m laps were difficult. i also did underwater swims for breathing exercises and treaded water for as long as I could, which wasn't very long.

these sessions were mostly unstructured, but was totally different from my regular exercises. by the end of my stay I did notice slight improvements in the distance i could cover underwater and I could swim more laps without stopping. i have now convinced myself you make the biggest gains from practicing your weakest activities.

Fri 15 Oct 10 to Sun 17 Oct 10

Lots of time in car, but did a bit of walking in kakadu national park over trails and into rock formations. not normally difficult, but in 35+ degrees celcius (95+ f) temperatures i found things a challenge.

Return to Gym - fighting demotivation and had additional days rest after deadlifting on 18 October.

weights are in kg, including bar

1.5kms jog to gym
Squats 10xbar,10x10,6x40,5x60,5x80,3x5x100 - weird rests
supersetted with mid lunges for first 3 sets
Benchpress 10xbar,10x30,8x40,5x60,2x5x80,1x4x80 - weird rests
BW circuit - pullups, dips, pushups, inverted row - not many reps each
1.2kms jog to beach - had a swim.
0.3 walk home

feels like i might be testing for weights to use as a starting point for another SS cycle.

Wednesday
PM in gym
B routine
all weight in kg inc bar

500m row warmup
squat
6x20
6x40
5x80
3x5x120

after my squat set one of the new junior trainers walked over and practiced his 'get a new client' speech ("hi, i'm blah, just noticed you doing x, is it ok to talk about ?, my suggestion is y, will avoid z and assist x, i'm a trainer"). and he was right, i do have a forward lean in my squat that i'm working to correct. attempting to correct a "good morning squat" - his suggestion was also right - deload to maintain form/avoid injury. and i told him so. didn't mention this SS cycle is my third after two long term deloads.

my wife tells me i often look like i'm about to tear someone's arms off (which i've never understood, i'm just not there to chat), and have never had anything said about my workouts (positive, negative or inquisitive) in three years. guy has a future.

shoulder press
6x27.5
5x37.5
5x57.5
3x57.5
2x55

well. failure to launch. i'd like to say it was because i was distracted, but it wasn't.
just. not. strong. enough.

deadlift
5x65
5x125
8x42.5

5xpullups
7,5,3,3,3

weird rests between sets
