JayRoc's Log


#1

The site where I usually log seems to be currently knackered.
Whether this is a permanent state of affairs remains to be seen but it'll do me no harm to keep a journal that's a bit less likely to disappear.

Not even a big weight, 120kg / 265lbs, just lost balance on the second rep and had to dump it into the monolift over my head. Other than losing a little skin off the top off my upper back I managed to escape injury-free though :slightly_smiling:
Got back on the horse and banged out a quick ten with 100kg just to avoid finishing on a sour note.
