The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    I did a 5/3/1 deload squat session a couple of months ago that was the only time I can recall practically jumping with a bar on my shoulder... didn't do me any harm though I haven't ever damaged my knee (they just creak through old age! )
    I've noticed more aches and pains the past few years haha. I splintered the Cartilage in my Knee a few years back so I have problems sometimes when I train Legs.

    OUCH! I guess you've got to be very sensible with it. You know your own body but it sounds like the wraps are good for your personal circumstances.

    Front Squats!

    Another exercise I haven't done for years!

    I just don't seem to have the flexibility of having the bar resting on my shoulders as I squat.

    Me too mate! You can grind your triceps into a bar (be warned... it fucking hurts! ) and that will let you get your elbows up higher (I'm on my phone right now, not a computer, so searching for stuff isn't the easiest, but there are videos online). I gave it a go as per the video I watched a couple of years ago (1 arm at a time) and the difference was considerable!

    Strong pressing again Jamie. I need to have a go at those single arm snatches... they're in a finisher workout I read recently.

    Thanks bud. They're fun, seem like they'll be very beneficial to lockout strength!

    Got a letter telling me I've been accepted to start a Fitness Instructor level 2 Course at my local College on the 27'th of January. Can't wait to finally be busy doing something! Sick of being sat round waiting to find out what's happening with my Heart.

    On that note I've finally got my ECG tomorrow, find out how the tickers doing and what treatment they plan to do next.

    Any idea when he's going to do that and get back to you?

    Solid session there... how are you finding the new training programme?

    Last time I saw the specialist in July they said I'd be seeing them again 6 Months after so I'm thinking late January/early February.

    I'm enjoying the new routine so far, only on the second week though.

    Monday 23.12.13 - Nutriton

    4876 Cals
    205g Protein
    429g Carbs (168g Sugar)
    254g Fat
    48g Fibre

    The high fat intake was due to some Butter with Sea Salt on Crackers that my housemates Mum got us. It was disgracefully nice!
    Been asked to do a Strongman contest at my Gym in the Summer. I'll be the only first timer there and I also think the only natural competitor.
