    Leg day... Funny anecdote that most who have been lifting a while can relate to:

    I set up my weights for a lift. Get under knowing I'm gonna hit 8 reps. Do doubt... I mean, got it last time for 8 so really shooting for more. Get to 6 and I'm thinking WTF is wrong with me, shit shouldn't be this tough! Alright you (insert negative motivational self talk here) MAN THE F UP!.... So just barely Eek out 8. Get up all pissed off. Hell if I'm getting weaker I may as well be sitting on my couch eating bon bons! Huff puff and general feeling like crap.... then you start to take the weights of. WELL!!! WOOOPS! Apparently addition not my strong suit cause I put on 20lb more weight than I thought. New PR! The clouds part, sun comes out.... I'm freaking He-Man. Damn I'm strong! Ah, the emotional rollercoaster of being a complete numb nutz.

    5/3/1 OHP day:
    5x37.5kg
    3x42.5kg
    7x47.5kg
    1x50kg
    1x52.5kg with a pause in the top position for as long as I could hold it
    11x37.5kg

    Paused bench
    10x45
    10x45
    10x45
    10x45
    15x45

    Pendlay Rows:
    10x40
    10x40
    10x40
    10x40
    14x40


    Was definitely a good day! I like that I've set my training max a bit low for the OHP, because I feel reasonably sure it'll allow me to go on for longer before I stall again. Will increase the weights in the accesory work next time around, shouldn't have energy to go above the rep-goal in the last set.

    That's awesome mate! I've done that before! Last week I did the opposite, that sucked a bit.

    Well, congrats on the new PR. Not so much on having to re-learn basic addition skills...

    Looking for Playground Workout Ideas

    So I've got the primal eating figured out now and also the move slowly. I'm ready to work on the lift heavy things and LGN. There's a city's park near my work place with a great kids playground that is rarely used. Does anyone have ideas for a primal playground workout? I need inspiration because I've tried a few times on my lunch break but never made it past about ten minutes. I'd like to go for 30 to 45 minutes.

    Ten minutes means you're doing it right! Chin-ups, swinging around like a monkey, dips, clapping dips, clapping chin-ups, etc., ten minutes is plenty! I mean, you can rest about three minutes and go back for more only so many times before your muscles start cramping or just won't work anymore, right? Same for sprinting, ten or fifteen minutes is plenty. Save time, keep it intense.
