    I'm really envious of your improvement! Sometimes I feel like I'm not going anywhere fast with my workouts. Machines just really put me off, they're frustrating to adjust at my gym and I don't like the idea of isolating one muscle group.. I suppose I could practice the Body by Science concept with free weights? I also like the idea of 5x5 lifting, seems more effective and less boring than the typical 10-12 rep protocol.

    I like to throw, squat and pull heavy things for fun.

    My attitude is "this is a weight I'm going to lift". My goal is to move that weight in good functional reps for 50 - 70 seconds. Once I do that I go up to a new weight that has to be lifted. For me it is about setting my next goal and achieving it.


    That keeps the boredom out of it. I'm not working out once a week, I'm testing my strength once a week to see if I've achieved my objective.


    Sometimes a new weight will mean a good time but sloppy reps. As I get stronger the time comes down as I my reps go into the weaker area of the range of motion. The final step allows me to keep my form and get it over the 50 seconds.


    I'm not doing much isolation. Those 5 exercises are covering my core as well as my arms and legs.


    What is really weird is throwing in the occasional session of static holds.


    Leg Press


    Jan 4th 520 lbs for 63 seconds

    Jan 11 540 lbs for 64 seoonds

    Jan 18 560 lbs for 43 seconds

    Jan 25 560 lbs for 58 seconds.

    Feb 1 three static holds for 1 second each

    Bench press 425 lbs

    Dead lift 555 lbs

    Squat 575 lbs

    Feb 8th 590 lbs for 58 seconds.


    Since feb 15 I've been pounding away at 610 lbs.

    Wow, I feel like a wimp after reading the last few entries! Nice work everyone! I did a 22 mile bike ride on Saturday (it was in the 50s here) and at the end I managed to fall off of my bike into the driveway. Dismounting in clips is always a little tricky, when you're an idiot like I am. Anyway, I'm trying to not bruise myself any further.


    2 mile run

    2x:

    20 lunges

    60 second squat hold against the wall

    60 second plank

    15 push ups

    @ Jess it is a static hold. I only move it about 1" in the safety cage, and then only for 1 - 5 seconds.


    That is enough to trigger the sequential stimuli of the differnt muscle fibres to create failure before the fibres have a chance to recycle. Those one second lifts resulted in a 30 lb gain the following week.

    Haven't posted anything here lately, good to see it still going strong. Most of my workouts these days are on the rower or strength workouts geared toward improving strength for rowing.


    Today: 10k row, followed by 20 squats (135 lbs), 20 Elastic band seated rows. Repeat 5x for time (not the 10k row).
