Thank you sir. lifting like a runner and running like a lifter and being content and consistent with it.Proof that you can be crazy strong, and plenty endurant. Strong work, sir.
I never peaked to a top lift so I am not much afraid to 'loose' a lift.How do you maintain your top weight lifts ?
40kg get up is a fairly heavy weight for your bodyweight.Indeed, a while ago, I daily practice S&S, and reached 40kg GU. However, if I do not train it, I lose it quite fast (even if I keep training my strength). Currently, I am not even sure I would be able to do it with the 32kg bell.
Currently not. For some months now I have a bread and butter strength routine of zercher squats (around 10 total reps, +-5) and barbell press (around 20 toral reps, +-10) almost daily a quick no brainer. So it is a kind of GTG: frequent sub maximal lifting on two opposed lifts.Do you practice some kind of GTG here and there or something ?
the good old three meals a day. I have 2-4 liter of home made kefir from raw organic whole milk a day. Often I mix this with cheap muesli/oats. Or just one or two liter of it in the morning. Lunch meat, fish, potatoes, vegetables. In the evening whole grain bread, eggs, cheese kefir with muesli.Out of curiosity, what's your diet look like to keep you that strong and athletic ?
Hello @Harald Motz
I thank you so much!
Indeed I am fairly light (58-59kg for 1,83m). I am trying to gain some weight because I'll need some strength for various OCRs next year. Nonetheless I do not want to give up my "conditioning training".
Do you think heavy one arm swings (44kg), done A+A style (so about 30 reps a day) may be a sweet spot for both conditioning, muscle building and strength ?
I forgot to ask :
As you are quite experienced in AA training, what would happen if one combines AA and a diet with a slight calorie surplus ?
I introduced heavy swings (48kg) because this is a move I really like. I perform them with 2 hands. Do you think that, on a daily basis, 10 sets of 5, with plenty of rest in between my be interesting as an AA protocol ?
Thanks again !
