I have had zero palpitations since starting barefoot intermittent fasting.

Missed that. A couple of times 10-15 years ago my dad had heart palpitations and went to hospital for tests. Nothing significant ever came of it. Seemingly atrial fibrillation is a thing that can just happen without any serious problems. He was in his 40s and quite fit.


Is he dead now? :uhoh:

Ran more than 1600 miles in 2014. Have been struggling with the motivation to repeat it.

I seem to be losing motivation year after year and I don't know how to get it back.. x(

No. He turns 60 in a few months and runs about 4 times a week and is planning on doing a half marathon.

Right chaps I’m getting back into BJJ tomorrow. I’ve been out for over 2 years I think so it’s going to be awful. Mog, I’m coming for you. :D

Haha. You could probably already kick my ass. I'm hopeless at it. Just not flexible enough, but it is fun. :)

Well ... it is disconcerting. But I've already seen a doctor after a similar thing happened after BJJ. I'll just rest more and won't do it after drinking beer the previous day.

Have been back in the gym doing a bit more cardio/HIIT workouts to try and help burn off the Xmas fat.

Unfortunately that leads to persistent ocular migraines afterwards. Seems to be related to dehydration but will sometimes manifest anyway. Don't get any pain, luckily, but the aura and inability to focus makes work a bit shit for the next 20 minutes or so. Bloody annoying but in the absence of any other symptoms not anything to worry about I've been told by doctors.

I've got them through a combo of dehydration, fatigue and what I presume to be low blood sugar or similar. Happens after tough morning sessions.

How hot was it? Heat will play a big factor.

Plus if you really want to not worry about it get a HRM strap, the wrist ones are ok but sometimes they drop in and out with sweat/dirt.

Really good pressing strength session this morning.
Bench: 95 x,2,2,2, 85 x4,4,4
Pendlay row: 70 x6,6,6,6
OHP: 60 x3,3,3
Incline DB row: 20 x10,10,10


Been working on shoulder mobility before these sessions and it's definitely helping. There the usual stuff like foam roller work on the lats to improve OH extension, but I've found that mashing the front of the shoulder really lets me brace with good form during lifts.
I lie face down with a KB on it's side and the handle pointing up directly into the front of my shoulder. Elevating my arm on a roller or step stretches it even more. Allows me to dig into all the tissues across the front of the shoulder capsule from the top of my pec, through the front delt and even a little bit down the arm. The improvement in movement is night and day afterwards.

Mog, a while back you were talking about some watches and recommended one that had some fancy functions. Can you recall what they were? I’m in the market for a new one.

Hit a 335 bench and 235 strict press last week. I was pretty happy about that as I’ve not been focused on strength for a few months. The strict press was particularly surprising as I’ve not pressed above 70% in those 2 months and I’m only a 5lbs of my pr.

How heavy are you these days, Flaps, out of curiosity?

Two plates OHP is fairly mental, I'd be interested to see how that compares to your bodyweight.

Good shout, while I am generally unnerved by some of the weights people are lifting on this thread it would be nice to see what people actually weigh.

Me: 84 kg

Me: 85kg yesterday morning. Was 83 before the break, so I'll be back at the by next week, I'd imagine.

Can bench 100 x( , OHP 70, squat 145, DL 180.

Half decent on the lower body lifts, fairly poor on the upper body stuff, considering my training age.

It's the Garmin Fenix 5 that I use and really love.

If you're interested, I'm sure you can stick that in the search function and get a few "reviews" that I wrote for it in other threads. :) Short summary is that it's more a fitness watch that smart watch, and it excels at that.

Is that all you did in your session
Is short blasts with heavier weight the way to go
I was in the gym for an hour I do about 10’or 11 different lifting exercises and a mile run
Not seeing many gains though and still have a gut and love handles

I reckon everybody who uses a gym should get some expert advice from a properly qualified and experienced exercise physiologist.

It is easy to do too much. I used to, and every few months or so, even shorter intervals, I would strain a muscle. Since I have had some expert guidance, I have had zero problems.

That was my heavy upper body session. Those lifts were all a significant percentage of my max lifts, aparr from the DB rows. That means a fairly long time limbering up to that weight in terms of stretching and warning up, with fairly significant rest periods throughout.

At a basic level, strength training is typically focused on heavy* weights for fewer reps, size building is slightly lighter for more volume. It depends what you want.

*Heavy for me is not heavy for Flaps or NPB, but might be significantly more than someone else could lift.


What weights exercises did you do? I don't even mean how heavy, just reps and sets.

Mog, there is a book/audiobook I have just DLed called Natural Born Heroes.

Quote:
ABOUT NATURAL BORN HEROES
Christopher McDougall’s journey begins with a story of remarkable athletic prowess: On the treacherous mountains of Crete, a motley band of World War II Resistance fighters—an artist, a shepherd, and a poet—abducted a German commander from the heart of the Axis occupation. To understand how, McDougall retraces their steps across the island that birthed Herakles and Odysseus, and discovers ancient techniques for endurance, sustenance, and natural movement that have been preserved in unique communities around the world.

His search takes us scrambling over rooftops with a Parkour crew in London, foraging for greens with a ballerina in Brooklyn, tossing heavy pieces of driftwood on a Brazilian beach with the creator of MovNat—and, finally, to our own backyards. Natural Born Heroes will inspire readers to unleash the extraordinary potential of the human body and climb, swim, skip, throw, and jump their way to heroic feats.

:lol:

It was a top end Filippi, nothing flimsy about it!

It was more the attitude in the boat that was the issue, for some reason the focus was not there, which is rare.

As for the cold I have had great outing in the past and returned to the boathouse with icicles on the riggers and ice on the loom of the blades.
