Re: Personal Best Log

155kg/340lbs deadlift x1 160kg budged, but didn't break floor Holy $h1t, man. You're really skyrocketing. Congrats! Thanks man, I appreciate it. Especially from someone who can curl 30kg easily. 65kg/143lbs hang snatch x1 Meh, curls are pff. I'm just worried now that you'll leave me in a cloud of d...

Re: Minimalist Training

I would always put another hip/hamstring move in there. Maybe that just me. I try and hit my posterior chain with twice as much volume as I do quad stuff. Single leg stuff couldn't hurt but I have to admit I don't like it very much. If you're only doing two leg exercises, how long do your workouts ...

Re: Exercise and Productivity

IceDane said something in his log about not having the time to workout and it reminded me of advice I gave my son, that working out on a regular basis will improve his productivity. I know Richard Branson claims that a workout can add 4 productive hours to your day. He may be exagerating a little b...

Re: Sævar's log

God, I still suck at keeping this log up to date. On the bright side, I'm still going to the gym. So this last month or so has been .. eh. Well, in terms of workouts, it's been fine. I didn't quite hit my 200 kg deadlift, however, due to illness. And partying. A lot of partying. I went a bit crazy, ...

That's lazy? That's what I do. What else do you suggest I include? Some one-legged work, such as lunges?

Re: Goals for 2012

I haven't made any specific goals yet. But I guess I can join in. Since I will probably hit 1 x 200 kg on the deadlift in a couple of weeks(was to before christmas, but delayed by illness), I guess I'll say.. Deadlift 230 kg (180 kg) Squat 150 kg (Haven't done 1RM yet.. but I have *not* been good at...

Re: Cleans/power cleans -- lacking flexibility for proper gr

I've had this problem to with cleans and clean-grip front squats (cross-arm front squats aren't a problem). However, in my case I don't think it's a flexibility problem. My arms are short and thick with long muscle bellies, and this limits how far I can bend my elbows. ... Anyway, I've found that h...

Re: Personal Best Log

Deadlift
170 kg x 4 reps. Followed up by two more reps. Probably had a third rep in me, possibly even 4, but I felt I had done enough. I can see 200kg on the horizon.

Re: Cleans/power cleans -- lacking flexibility for proper gr

I just wrote half an article, but then I read your message again and I got the point that you have problems with the final stance holding the bar on your shoulders. Am I right? If it's a flexibility issue you're probably doing the clean wrong. That's my point of view. Can you do front squats? If no...

Re: Things you like and hate about your gym

I really like my gym for the most part. It's a small gym that I got a free month in when I moved here(new county, automatic pamphlet of coupons) and ended up staying 'cause it's pretty cool. Like: Even though the guys who work there aren't the most informed people, they are pretty cool guys. I've on...

25/11/11 It's been way too long since I posted here. I kept working out longer than the last post was(april last year), but eventually stopped after convincing myself that I was too busy, which is complete bull$h1t. I have never been busier than I am currently(My mondays start at 04:00 so I can work...
