Well with the recent events in London it doesnâ€™t feel right chatting on about my insignificant day-to-day life! But thatâ€™s what these terrorists want â€” to disrupt our lives â€” so you had better try harder scumbags!
Most of my family lives up north of London. I only have a few friends who live in the central London area and I hope theyâ€™re ok. The sooner these extreme fractions of so-called Religious groups are wiped of the face of the earth the better! The only way mankind can improve and move forward is with a freemind and not with any of these fanatical religious regimes trying to control free thought and free will. They wonâ€™t meet on a battlefield with respect and honour. They skulk in the shadows and kill and mame innocent men, women and children.
Now thatâ€™s of my chest Iâ€™ll get on with my drivel of whatâ€™s been happening.
Squats, ha harr! Yep, Iâ€™ve been doing the stretches and exercises the Chiro gave me and on Wednesday I managed to train at Dee Why with the guyâ€™s and it was legs. I was looking forward to this session because Iâ€™ve been training solo for 3 months now and missed the competition. The session went a little like this:
First was 2 sets of leg curls just to warm up, stretching in between.
1st set leg press â€” The type that pivots as opposed to a sled â€” 160kgs
2nd set 280kgs 20 reps
3rd set 480kgs 10 repsâ€¦ yep she was loaded to the max.
4th set same as above.
Next I was going to do some hack squats but the boys were egging me on to do back squats! Remember, I havenâ€™t squatted for 4 weeks and I was a bit apprehensive. So I started in really light and kept my abs really tight. I have had to change my squatting technique from a power-lifting squat to more of a bodybuilding squat.
1st set 60kgs 20 reps
2nd set 100kgs 20 reps
3rd set 180kgs â€” I was a little worried at this point although everything was going ok! So I took the plunge and un-racked it! 10 good reps and a big smile after I had re-racked it!!!! And two days later everything still works, as it should.
Next were lying hamstring curls 1 warm up set of 30 reps and 3 sets in the 12 to 15-rep range. I did two sets of stiff legged deadlifts with a pair of 30lb dumbbells, aiming for the stretch-legs finished.
My training partner Matthu informed me that he had come across the psycho-bodybuilder who tried to bench press half the weights in the gym The guy had asked Matt for a spot on flat bench so Matt kindly obliged. After watching him struggle for 2 reps with 300lbs Matt thought exactly the same as I did when this guy asked me for a spot! That is, heâ€™s going to drop the weight and try again. But no!!!! Psycho-bodybuilder sticks another 20kgs on each side and asks for another spot.
Matthu isnâ€™t as forgiving as I am so when Psycho-BB lifts the bar what does Matt do? Matt puts his hands in his pockets, thatâ€™s what he does!! Oh and he shouts encouragement like â€˜come on get it up!â€™ At this point the bar is pinning Psycho-BB down and the only thing thatâ€™s rising is his blood pressure. So Matt leans over and helps him re-rack the bar and Psycho-BB says, â€œWhat happened I was going really well?â€ Matt just shakes his head and walks off. Where thereâ€™s no sense thereâ€™s no feeling is what I say.
Well guyâ€™s Iâ€™m on the night shift tonight (feeding the baby) so I had better go.
