      Not at all. Necky was being cheeky, but if English isn't your first language it can be an obscure turn of phrase.

      Raising your flag (or flying your flag at full salute) is a metaphor for... well... think of a part of the male anatomy specifically that goes up like a flagpole. I think you'll get the idea.

      And pictures of a fit lady in workout gear tend to....

      Never mind. Just give us dem pictures

          • Did the first day of a Couch to 5K running program today. I can lift, I can sprint, but I cannot run longer distances.
            So, I figured it might be high time to rectify that.

              • Just some LISS today for about an hour mixing it between treadmill, bike and elliptical. I get bored REALLY easily so I can only stand doing any one of them for about 20 minutes at a time.

                    That is even better and more challenging. I'd always do so, although I didn't do any real liss for quite a long time. Just 20-25 min for recovery on off days.

                    • Madcow: End of Week 4

                      Liking barefoot training. My squats felt good.

                      Squats:

                      90 kg x 5
                      110 kg x 5
                      132.5 kg (291.5 lb) x 5
                      155 kg (341 lb) x 5
                      182.5 kg (401.5 lb) x 3 (Match 3 RM)
                      132.5 kg (291.5 lb) x 8

                      I noticed my right knee turning in at the sticking point on one of the 155 kg reps. Pissed me off. I've never had, or at least noticed, that form breakdown before. I'm going to watch the way my knees track when I drive out of the hole very carefully now.

                      Bench Press:

                      52.5 kg x 5
                      65 kg x 5
                      80 kg (176 lb) x 5
                      92.5 kg (203.5 lb)x 5
                      107.5 kg (236.5 lb) x 2 (f)
                      80 kg (176 lb) x 8

                      This bench stall is really F**king pissing me off right now. Thought I'd ironed out my form issues. I was gassed today, but I still won't accept that as an excuse. I've repped 5 out of not much less weight. I've fricking hit a more solid 1 RM rep on 115 kg (253 lb).

                      If this shit doesn't resolve itself I'm going to deload and hit 3x5 or some cluster style training.

                      F*********CCCKKKKKKKK.

                      Row:

                      60 kg @ 2 x 5
                      77.5 kg (170.5 lb) x 5
                      90 kg (198 lb)x 5
                      102.5 kg (225 lb) x 3
                      77.5 kg (170.5 lb) x 8

                      Happy with the rows. My form felt good.

                      Messed around with Ahnold Presses and Seated Machine Rear Delt Extensions (i.e. reverse pec dec), then limped home.

                        A lot of people find that the frequency of bench pressing needs to be increased to drive gains after a certain point. Also, it seems to be the most sensitive to fluctuations in bodyweight. I messed around with some light bench presses at the ladyfriend's house last Saturday (not a normal lifting day for me) and then hit a 1 and 2-rep PR Monday. I'll probably do the same this Saturday and see if it works again.

                          Post how it goes. My bench is pathetic.
                          In matters of style, swim with the current. In matters of principle, stand like a rock.

                            Well, I'm not gonna bring any plates to her house, so I'm likely stuck benching <200 on Saturdays. But it's just supposed to be some extra volume anyway, not really a huge intensity stimulus. Then again, I'm starting to work on my pre-meet recomp, so if I drop below 160 lbs, which I should, there will be negative bench press consequences. It will be hard to separate out the noise, but I'll gladly share the data.

                              I find your lack of commitment disturbing.
