    Overhead pressed 67.5kg for two reps today. Not bad as I weigh 64kg atm. Looking to get up to 70 by the summer.

    Very impressive a lot of people will never even OHP their own body weight let alone above their body weight for reps.

    Shoulders and legs I have always been pretty strong as even as a kid. I think its because I got a fat arse lol.

    My deadlift is fucking pathetic however.

    Evening workout went well.

    Dead/OHP
    F Squat/Skull
    Fly/Pullup

    That OHP is insane, 67.5kg that's a mega effort. I do sets of 12 supersetted with dead lifts and I manage 29k.

    I think I need to up my weights but I haven't got round to buying new plates yet.

    All the HR numbers are still insane though so I'm very happy atm.

    I can’t even imagine supersetting deadlifts. Whether I’m doing 3-5 heavy reps or 8-10 lighter ones, I’m absolutely fucked for at least 2 minutes after a set.

    Went to gym today for my weekly drop in.

    Lots of stretching, core work, some light upper body and light leg work.

    You got anstratching progr or just random stretches.

    I do yoga on a Wednesday but I'm at the mercy of what the instructor wants to stretch when I need to focus on my hips and shoulders which are aged at approx 83 years old :(

    My stretching is just mainly a series of yoga manouveres mainly focusing on lower body and core. Child, half pigeon, downward dog, bridging & some other who's names im not sure. Theres one where i just lie flat on my back that is surprisingly useful, i can feel my body weight just settling and pushing muscles the right way without doing anything.

    And then ur basic core exrecise, planking, side planks, elevating legs and alternating knee to chest (not sure of technical name).

    Nothing too strenuous, 45 mins on a mat and gives me a chance to check out the yoga pants walking around the gym.

    Training around footy is starting to fuck me off and because of the weather this year our games are backed up to fuck.
    Played Thursday then Saturday and 8 aside last night, admitted I should have fucked it off last night but i proper enjoy that one.
    Now I was supposed to be playing tonight but I’ve fucked it off to run but my legs are dead as fuck. Then another game Friday. It’s fucking relentless.

    Naw this is ridiculous man. It’s been a seriously shite winter and they are backed up well more than normal. I’m used to midweekers at the end of the year but not 2 games mid week then the weekend. That with this run it’s doing my head in

    It shags me dead, but it gets my HR going through the roof which I wanted.

    It's also different muscle group so I guess that helps.

    Workout wasn't great today, only got through 6 supersets instead of my usual 9 cos I was rushed for time. I remember now why I worked out the mornings as there was no nagging for me to hurry up.

    Sprints this morning usually do 200m but decided to mix things up and do 400m instead, OMG forgotten how brutal 400m sprints are. Kept going too fast at the start so was dying over the last 150m every time.

    Surely if it's HIIT you're doing you should be going 100% anyway though, rather than pacing yourself?
