Sunday workout: 84.4kg

Squats: EMOM: 11 minutes (was supposed to be 10) Triples @ 140kg (33 reps)

Accessory:

Leg extension, Cable row machine and low to high cable fly supersets.

Notes:
I accidentally did another set on squats because I can’t read a stopwatch.
Squats moved well and were all done belt-less because ease of use lol

Was a bit of a prick at the gym today.
There was one other guy in the power-lifting room, He was middle of a bench set while his friend was on loud speaker (phone) and he’d turned the radio off.
He finished his set and turned his phone off loud speaker but just sat chatting on the bench…
So I just turned the radio back on.
His mate also rocked up to the gym about 15 minutes later.
I don’t normally have an issue with phones in the gym but if you need to make a phone call at least go somewhere people aren’t expecting to lift.


#425

Well mate you weren’t the prick here.
I would have turned the radio right on and told him to go somewhere else.

That is great news man. Good luck with the medical :slight_smile:


#426

Some strong squatting here mate, great stuff.
How’s the new fourbie going? Are there any good tracks around Canberra? Nothing close here in Adelaide, need to travel at least a few hours


#427

What and no offer of dinner ? Or at least a thick shake if you couldnt chew !! :wink:


#428

Thanks @mortdk I didn’t even get to the medical, the gave me the rate of pay early and it was way too low. Like $10,000 a year lower.
No pont moving up if your pay goes backwards lol


#429

Ha I haven’t got it yet, weekly they keep telling me an accessory has been delayed (I think the first guy forgot that it had accessories to be fitted).
It should be ready next Tuesday but I’m not at all inclined to believe them at this point.


#430

As long as its strawberry flavored mate

Sounds good. Maybe next time you’re down here.

Notes:
Late to the gym again, I think I managed to run through the workout in almost 30 minutes.
Felt pretty flat before the gym but everything moved well and after the fact I was feeling pretty good.
Also have recently discovered stretch fit jeans, got to say I’m a fan.


#435

Hmmm…strech fit jeans? Like skinny jeans?


#436

Haha no necessarily, they’re like like normal jeans but give full range of motion so I could squat in them.

Edit: I did try some of the skinnier ones but it looked like I was wearing jeggings

I also need to dial back my enthusiasm for off road equipment (its becoming a problem).


#438

I’m getting that way with tools. I’m almost looking for stuff to do at home so I have an excuse to get more.

Surely everyone needs a good set of tools though lol might have to stop at the tool shop on the way home
