Anvil or Hammer


Two new bloggers

Posted in Technical Update by Mike on June 9, 2007

Wahoo is about all I can thing to say. I posted about this over at trainingsyndicate but I wanted to put it here too cause I think it’s easy to get lost in the volume of post we have flowing over there.

It is always interesting when you meet two people, almost simultaneously, and they could be further apart. Meet our two new bloggers

Jen will be blogging at SlidingSideways, a blog about training around life and living around training. Jen get props for not only training hard but for having the best thought out, hardest researched theme I have personally seen.

Neal meets us with the LeftHook, a blog training to fight and fighting to train. Neal’s a busy guy as you can see from his first post but he made time during fight week to give us an idea of what life is like for an active, competing boxer.

Overworked and not paid

Posted in Gym Strength by Mike on June 9, 2007

I believe I have overworked the posterior chain. Shouldn’t surprise me with what I do.

Clean Squats – I was really focused on the squat in these. Each rep was clean, jerk, back squat (full pause at the bottom), back squat (another full pause), back jerk. I would do this twice
60K
70K
80K
100K
attempted 110 K but I was just getting greedy
100K
90K

Olympic squat 110K X 20

It was at this point (fortunately after I was done) that my hamstring decided it didn’t want to play any more. It’s been kinda cramping on and off since. I’m drnking my water, gotta use the roller and so on. I had hoped to hit a workout this weekend but I think this is a warning.

I’ve got big plans for Monday, hitish workout follow by something else….
Just gonna prepare.
