EOW report:

Squat: 75kg x 5 x 3
Press: 30kg x 5 x 3 - Hopefully this reset will prevent another premature stall
Bench press: 45kg x 5 x 3
Deadlift: 105kg x 5
Power clean: 37.5kg x 3 x 5

  • Tried focussing on leg drive during the deadlifts today. It seemed to help a fair bit. It's my first time ever lifting something so heavy, so it's certainly an experience when picking it up off the floor.

I only got one barbell session in last week.
Squat: 75kg x 5 x 3 - Deloaded and reinforced technique
Press: 35kg x 5 x 1 - filmed this. I want to film myself doing broomstick overhead presses to tighten up my form
Bench press: 50kg x 5 x 3
Deadlift: 115kg x 5
Power clean: 42.5kg x 3 x 5

My 32kg kettlebell showed up out of the blue.... in not a great state.

No packaging, with just a waterlogged piece of paper taped to it. I'm not wrapped, no tracking and so late I thought it would never show up. I bought my 16kg and 32kg off this seller but they've really let themselves down.... won't be buying off them again unfortunately

At least I have a nice little collection now


So for wednesday I did instead:
Goblet squat: 32kg, 3 sets of 5
Press: 16kg, 3 sets of 5
Swing, 32kg, 1 set of 15

Friday:
Goblet squat: 32kg, 3 sets of 5
Press: 16kg, 1 set of 5
Swing, 32kg, 2 sets of 15

Just imitating SS's Squat - Press - Pull structure. Nice short sessions, I must try and find Easy Strength by Dan John and give it a read

  • I did the goblet squats in the warmup with a 24kg, as I remember reading in the past about squatting your swing weight. After learning more about squatting from doing barbells, I believe in the importance of squatting, but am not a tremendous fan of low bar back squats. Goblet squats seem great.

  • Air quality has been trash due to the fires. It's been hard to time exercise right.... i'm enjoying getting back into S&S though

  • I've started to do some curls during the prying squats. Doing about 6-10 curls during the warmup. I've never done curls before and I reckon it could help me feel stronger while carrying things with my arms bent. I will update with how it goes

  • After coming back to S&S i've been able to identify a few lacking areas from my previous time with it. Particularly around the use of the lats in a 1H swing, and telling myself to use my hips as a reference for movement (swing hinge and get up hinge) rather than some vague movement

  • I realised that I really missed the healthy feeling of practicing S&S 😢 Short, sweet and frequently is a really nice way to train
