Decent lower body volume session for me this morning.

Squats: 90x8, 5 sets
RDL: 100x8, 3 sets
Hip bridges: 50x12, 3 sets
Seated calf raises: 40x15, 3 sets
SL curls & extensions


Had a quiet few weeks with moving, weights are feeling good ramping back up over the last two weeks. I also have a 30 minute walk in to work/gym each morning, which is helping me, I think. Gives my body a chance to wake up and loosen up. :thumbup:

HR between 120 and 180 ish seems grand to me. I mean, you're working hard, that't the point. You don't want to take it easy. If it was hitting 220, then you might worry more. Obviously this is my completely unprofessional opinion.

You're 39/40, aren't you? As you age, "healthy" peak HR reduces. Thing is, you're in much better nick than your average white 40 year old, so those references should be a guideline, rather than a cause for concern. Granted, don't dismiss them.


My dad is 59 and is regularly running 10km and does lots of cycling. He's always been wiry and active, so had a good base to start from; but his general capacity for exercise is ridiculous for his age. I wouldn't worry too much.


What time of the day is training? I presume it's evening? Could be the reason you're wired for so long afterwards.


Cheers mate, appreciate that.

Yeah it's fairly late class in central Stockholm, and I live outside of the city in the countryside. By the time I get home it's usually 9:45pm. But I'm amped all night with a pounding heart rate and can't get to sleep until 1-2am.

Not so worried about my heart-rate during training, just the way that it goes bananas afterwards. Any minor effort for the next 12 hours and it spikes through the roof again.

Anyway, I'm 98% sure that it's just a matter of not being fit enough to roll for an hour+ yet, and I've got a doc's appointment on Monday that should hopefully cover the remaining 2% of doubt. :)

P.S. yes, recently 40.

Had a lot of leg volume on Thursday; squats, RDLs, glute bridges, calf raises, leg curls & extensions, all high reps. Hammies are fairly tasty with DOMS now. Was interesting limbering up for my run this morning. Didn't really affect the running, though, which is grand.

Pulled over 200kgs on the HexBar this morning for an easy double. First time I have picked over 200 up in many years. Happy enough for only my 9th lower body session of the year :lol:

Also tried out a pair of Addias Powerlift3.1. Did a few boxed squats in them and seated squat jumps, they feel great. The old Oly shoes will be kept exclusively for Front and Back Squats now.

Had my first regatta at the weekend, an interesting Saturday afternoon to say the least.

First race was against Vesta, we are neck and neck for the first 400m but we pull away and our 8 beats them by one and a half lengths over 1000m, not a bad result as our club have not beaten Vesta in years. All good, we are in the final, racing against Thames, which is a bit unnerving as they are basically one of the best clubs in the country and it begs the question what the hell are they doing entering a regatta of this (low) calibre. They had beaten Cygnet by 5 lengths in their heat and are clear favourites to win the final. But wait, it turns out that one of their crew was an illegal sub (your race day crew has to match the crew submitted in your race application) so are disqualified. Beaten Cygnet get reinstated into the final, but they have already de rigged and racked their boat on the trailer and cant be arsed to go back out so scratch the race handing us victory by default. A bit shit as we all wanted to have a crack at Thames and now we not racing anyone, but we still have to row out the final on our own to claim our 'pot'. So off we go in the final racing down the Thames as billy no mates on our own with victory assured until someone at bow catches a massive crab, and he cant recover it, turns out he is having a massive epileptic seizure , he is very lucky he did not fall out the boat. We stop the boat and the rescue launches are dispatched to aid our stricken man, while all this is going on we 'float' across the finish line, not that anyone gives a shit. Our bow man is taken away for treatment and what's left of the crew paddles back to the start line. After some deliberation from the marshals they finally agree to decide to give us the victory as we technically did cross the line and we still had everyone in the boat while we did so. A somewhat hollow victory but a win is a win!!

Hope your man is ok Danny.

Weird uppers session today. Couldn't get a pair of 34s onto my shoulders for seated Dbell press despite the 32s going up with ease. Though I can't remember ever doing more than 34s on the exercise. Oh well, there is always next session.

Get a spotter to help you. Set back into the bench and get them to push under your elbows or grab your wrists until you get them in the starting position.
Sometimes throwing up heavier DBs just feels wrong, so you can't do it, despite having the necessary strength.

Very common if you train late.

I get home from Martial Arts about that time and rarely get to sleep before 2.00am.

I can never sleep after my mountain bike night rides. Whereas if I do a weekend morning ride, I feel massively sleepy for the rest of the day. Drives me mad.

Pulled 5x3 of 200kg deadlifts two weeks ago - was absolutely wiped out for three days afterwards. My CNS was shattered. 240kg on the horizon though.......

I'd imagine he's fast asleep :lol: hope it went well, serious punishment.

After the crash last week got out on the bike again last night, hoping to get back on track for the 200km next month. Everything felt good except my hands, both covered in cuts and bruises which are sore on the handlebars. Thankfully ribs weren't at me either. Should come right in the next day or two.

Quick update if anyone gives a shit: went to see the doctor today, she measured my blood pressure, listened to my heart, and hooked me up to an EKG machine. Everything seems "better than normal" apparently, but I did a blood test too, and she's sending me to do a heart stress test this week "just to be sure".

So not quite been given the two thumbs up yet, but it's looking promising. :)

Always interested. :thumbup:
Besides, collective experience of injuries/ailments etc can help others sort issues faster if they have something up.


Is the stress test one of those ones where they stick you on a treadmill with a heart monitor and progressively increase the pace?

I’ve got planned to do 5x2 deadlifts tonight at 200kg so thanks for this :lol:

And it’s the first time I’ve deadlifted properly from the floor without a pause or deficit since beginning of March.

If you like her check out Swede Isabella Von Wesseinberg. She is nearly 20kg lighter than me yet can lift about 50-60kg more in Squats.

Yeah that's the one. Although she said on an exercise bike. Basically just another EKG scan under progressive load I believe.

I think I would actually break if I tried that, I am still doing trap lifts around 120ish.

Yeah, but you would annihilate most of us meatheads on the C2 (or any aerobic activity), and you're like 20 years older than me.

Double Ironman finished in 38:52:something

6th place finisher which means I got a trophy for top 6 placing - ok so there were only 6 who started but that is unimportant.

Brutal as fudge - NEVER AGAIN

My right foot is one fluid filled mess :lol:

About to go out for a jog - actually scratch that x(
