      I pulled 505 pound yesterday and without any warm up! Well, to be honest not in Deadlift but in Rack pull from the pins right below the knee cap… Some stupid jerks had left the bar in the power rack with 5 plates on each side and locks too, when I came to warm up with hanging leg raises from the pull up bar on the top of the power rack. Being in a lazy mood I decided to deadlift it to lock-out and walk it in so I could get enough space to do the leg raises. But hey - That was easy! I thought, when pulling the 505 bar to lock-out. So I put back the bar on the pins and repeated the pull for three more reps! It was not planned in my workout yesterday, but I pulled the bastard for two more set of four reps before starting on my routine. No, I know that I am not a strong lifter, and I don’t care much about how much I lift either, but it was a little fun pulling 505 for reps without any warm up… But those jerky power-lifters should remember to de-load the bar hereafter…

            De-load time! No weight training today, last week I started to eat less and I also hurt my left elbow, so I have decided to take a couple of days off from the gym and only do the morning cardio. My body composition and general conditioning has improved by doing a high volume routine for the last months, but I think it is time to make some adjustments to the routine, so I am heading for the thinking box right now…

              Listening to some of my favorite music, like the amazing Björk is not a bad idea...

                This is my favourite Björk tune. The video is just beautiful!

                "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

                In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

                  Time for a update again! After being on a high volume, high frequency six day a week routine, I started de-loading on volume last week only going to the gym for 3 days and lowered the morning cardio from 7 days to 5 days only. I felt a bit beaten up, maybe because of reducing food, but also probably because of a latent flu, since everybody around me got very sick from it, but obviously I kind of escaped a full blown illness. So, I have been thinking how to proceed from now, and my plan that I started yesterday, is to reduce a little on the volume; Monday I will now do pull and push movements that targets back, Chest and delts. Tuesday I will target biceps/triceps/forearms and legs. Then for Thursday and Saturday I will do a high volume full body work-out similar to the old school routines of Steve Reeves and the old-timers; around 60-70 sets, and 2 and a half hour. I plan to stay on this for the next four weeks, and after that do four more weeks with 3 days a week full-body workout routine only. The idea behind it is to cashing in latent strength and endurance gains from accumulated fatigue that have been build up through my 5 – 6 days gym workouts and morning cardio…

                    Glad you didn't get laid out by the flu. As we continue along this Primal path, we have noticed that we are escaping more and more of whatever bugs are flying around, or they just make us "blah" for a day, and we are good. It is nice.

                      I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

                        Yep, everybody here in the office got very sick from the flu, with fever and everything, so I am very happy that I escaped that mess! Before changing my eating habits colds and flus always hit me very hard, so what we put in our bodies matters, no doubt about that....

                          Hey, that's one of my many favorites from her Badgergirl! When the future generations fully discover Bjork's genius, she will be recognized as the greatest musican of our time, no doubt about that at all! Here is Bjorks interpretation of whats going on inside our bodies:

                            Last week I started a new 4 days a week combined split and full-body routine, doing a push-pull split that target delts, back and chest on Mondays and triceps, biceps, forearms, quadriceps, hamstrings and calves on Tuesdays. Thursdays and Saturdays I train “full-body” that takes around 2.5 hour to finish a session. The routine will hit bodyparts 3 times a week, same as the routine I did before that had an even higher volume than now. I continue with the morning cardio, stair running, hill sprinting and easy fartslek at the beach, with moderate to high intensity 5-6 days a week. It’s a very nice way to start the day, so I love getting up at 6.30 and doing this for an hour. My weight is now around 215 pound, and my body-composition, strength and endurance is better than ever, even better than in my twenties when I was a semi professional athlete! But instead of focusing on being a competing athlete I am now focusing on training myself for general fitness and general wellbeing, to stay fit and healthy for the rest of my temporary existence!

                            I found an interesting and funny interview of a Korean judo master on youtube that seems to do fairly well at the age of 64! His “secret” seems to be eating 10 anchovies and drink yogurt for breakfast, so maybe that’s something to try LOL;
