Few steps backwards...

Confession...

Well i haven't really been training for a few months now[:I]

Too many other things been draging my attention away from my training. I have been in the gym sporadically but i have got noticably weaker and lighter!

I am down to 235 - 240 lbs again now, I have hardly squatted at all, last time i deadlifted i only went up to 210kg, it was comfortable though. I did rows with 120kg 3x3 and dipped with 25kg for 3x3 which is ok but my cleans and overhead are really cr#p[xx(] 80kg overhead press is hard - very hard[V]

Oh well, i hope to get back on this properly within the next couple of weeks and get back up where i was. I still want to compete again next year!

I feel better now i have owned up to all that.

thanks for listening to me whinge.

    i was wondering where you had been mate like i said in another post its all gone strange and westside apparently you have to squat using boxes now and you need elastic bands for your bench press.

    i know what you mean about other things though, the sooner this year is over the better i have had a house move injury after injury you name it and its amazing how much the training suffers

    of well you will get it back quick enough, its amazing how fast the body remembers

    I hear you there. Things have been really hectic around here lately and I'm just not in the gym 24/7 like I use to be. But the new year brings promising answers. I start my new job as a manager at the local gym and already have my old clients moving to the new gym for me to train. This should easly have me going every day again and eating like a cow.

    Its bad not being able to lift, but loving it so much and not being able to.

    Well i am comming back!

    Perhaps all the cr#p i have been through recently will spur me on in the gym to come back hard and break some pb's!

    Hope so! Feel weak as a kitten right now...

    I hear you mate! Injury has put some bad Demons in my head...I know I've got a long journey ahead and won't be able to lift properly for ages, so I'm getting voices saying "What's the point in training?!"...NOT good at all.

    Oh well, rehab ahoy! As long as I'm making steady progress in my fitness, and watch Rocky a couple of times, or my Ronnie video I should be ok. (I hope!)

    Furniture - very glamorous!

    Yes i can use it to my advantage, everything there is a heavy odd object. Nothing is a regular shape, i mainly carry sofas. A big wood and leather 3 seater must weigh between 60-120kg lugging them up and down stairs is good for the endurance! And my grip is getting better daily as you just have to grab the furniture where you can, there are no hand holds and rarely corners!

    I am loads stronger than everyone there but i don't seem it because i am just learning how to shift the things, they all have the knack down perfect. I can't show off at the mo, anyway there is not much call for power snatching a dining table!

    Cheers!

    I will, i am not that keen on the job but the people are generally nice and the work is actually forcing me to trim down and get fit! Can't be all bad!

    Cheers
