Good day today…Johnno had his testing and got pretty much exactly what I predicted. I also know that he knows he has more in him. His next training cycle will very much focus on improving his technique as he falls behind his bench line far to easily and often…we’ll fix that. He doubled his pull ups and improved his push ups and inverted rows…he’s also put on some weight and lost some fat.
His fatness is an issue I’m not bothered with or concerned about at all at the moment…it’ll be at least one more training cycle before I will make a concerted push to get him leaner….you can expect to see a big jump in his pull ups, push ups and inverted rows then.
Johnny after testing pulling 280kgs or 617+lbs just for a laugh…EASY.
Damian did his row today and posted the following numbers:
200m – 34.1
400m – 1:15.7
600m – 2:01.8
800m – 2:47.7
1000m – 3:36.7
200m – 36.2
400m – 1:21.5
600m – 2:06.3
800m – 2:54.4
1000m – 3:44.1
800m – 2:52.3
600m – 2:07.0
400m – 1:18.7
200m – 33.0
It’ll take some beating…27mins48ses averaging 1:44/500 for the duration.
I’ve also just had some in person feedback on the blog…apparently I rant too much…I thought I was being pretty good on holding back on the ranting?
So….are you in favour of more or less ranting?
HH has made a mess of his shoulder playing. We were messing around this morning with single arm barbell snatching which I’ve never done before….and when I say messing around I mean HH was ‘schooling’ me…I sucked…as you can see below. The video contains language that should not be heard by children…or sensitive and easily offeneded adults…YOU WERE WARNED.
Single Arm Barbell Snatch…which I missed repeatedly…I’m such a baby.
I see in all those crossfit video’s that they like coaching the ‘stamp’…when doing oly lifting variations…I just prefer to do it after….consider it complex training….a beyond maximal lift followed immediately by plyometric work….don’t knock it till you try it.
