Week 27: Run

Run
1km in 19min 53sec

Bodyweight: 95.6kg

I thought I’d take advantage of the nice weather and go for a run. Back to kettlebells tomorrow. I’m not sure why my weight has dropped, I don’t look leaner. Maybe dehydration.

Hi Furo,

Just checking in. Have you thought about maybe buying your own blood pressure equipment so you can monitor it closer?

I remember at university at one of my pracs that my blood pressure was measured a bit high, and I went off to the specialist who made me wear a 24 hour blood pressure measuring machine. At the end of it all, the specialist said that my blood pressure was on the higher end of normal but all good. Ive had it measured a few times post-uni and it has always been perfect… must of been all that beer and pizza I used to eat during my uni days.

As you probably know, torturous retinal vessels are not always an indication of hypertension, and are often congenital.

Looking forward to see how you with the new program and eating schedule.

Unlce Bird.

Deadlifts

Good heavy session today. I managed a 48kg get-up with my right hand and I got up with my left…but had to bail on the descent. Almost had a Mountain/Oberyn moment. I decided to finish with some beltless deadlifts, for the first time in just over a month - I thought they went quite well.

@theBird - Thanks for your comment! I actually did get a machine to use at home and took 12 measurements on consecutive days and calculated the mean, which was 125/74mmHg. So that was definitely reassuring. I plan to repeat that in a couple of months when I’m (hopefully) a bit fitter and leaner.

Single Handed Swings
40kg: 5x8
EMOM

Turkish Get-Ups
40kg: 5x1
E2MOM

Bodyweight: 97.0kg

Did this at home at 22:30, after a long day at work. The swings felt ok but the get-ups were an absolute war. I’m not sure why they were so hard, but the carpet and low ceiling didn’t help. I’ll go lighter (probably 32kg) tomorrow.

Week 27 - Summary

Bodyweight: 96.2kg

Training: 5x S&S, 1x run

Nutrition: mediocre

Good week - fairly heavy. It is reassuring that my deadlift strength seems to have maintained. Unlike last time I ran this I’m going to make an effort to cycle in other movements to keep everything ticking along.

Week 28: Simple and Sinister

Row
1km in 3min 35sec

Single Handed Swings
32kg: 5x10
EMOM

Turkish Get-Ups
32kg: 5x1
EMOM

Ring Pull-Ups
BW: 5x5

Bodyweight: 96.1kg

Very good session today, everything felt smooth. My limiting factor with the get-ups is interestingly my upper body strength - I sometimes struggle to stabilise the weight overhead. With the swings I think my hip power, grip strength and cardiovascular system are pretty evenly matched.

200kg: 1
Mixed Grip, Belted

Single Handed Swings
28kg: 5x10
EMOM

I did the deadlifts at the gym and the kettlebell stuff at home. 200kg moved fairly well. Heavy get-ups on carpet suck.

Run
5km in 33min 8sec

Bodyweight: 96.2kg

This was my first 5km run in quite a while. I thought I was pushing the pace but ended up with my usual time.

Another home session today. I didn’t fancy Turkish get-ups so cycled instead.


#214

Week 28 - Summary

Bodyweight: 96.5kg (up a bit)

Training: 1x run, 5x gym - Good

Nutrition: not so good

This week went pretty well. The highlight was probably the 200kg deadlift. I need to keep an eye on my bodyweight.

Single Handed Swings
32kg: 5x10
EMOM

Turkish Get-Ups
32kg: 5x1

The swings were tough today, I think because I pushed hard with the rowing and took minimal rest between them. Finished with a bunch of mobility work.

Solid session today, I finally got a 48kg get-up which felt good. The bodyweight stuff doesn’t seem to have deteriorated despite neglecting it, so that’s a big relief.
