2)
explosive pressup
powerclean and push press

    knighty, i do/still play rugby ,,,however, i am not good enough to play it at a high level. more of a social thing.

    i have not been strictly interested in powerlifting, as i hate benching, but more about lifting heavy weights. That will continue to be a major interest. However, i have alot more time to devote to that .... ie up to the 30-35 age range. i think that i should try something different and beneficial when i have the time ( im at uni and i get loads spare) and thai boxing is something i always wanted to try.

    also, thai boxing offers excellent coniditioning benefits!

    rest assured lifting will play a big part .... i still want to lift big, but will obviously have to keep the bodyweight in check and the frequency of lifting low.

    i definetly can see myself deadlifting 225kg and powercleaning and push pressing 125kg in the next few years if i get my act together. ALSO want to take on that BWx15 overhead squat challenge.
