Today, 8 cups of coffee, one bottle of apple juice (255 calories) and 375grams cooked chicken (approx 500 calories). Total for the day around 1200 calories, i'm just back from the poncy gym where I did 900 calories on the cross trainer, therefore i'm around 300 calories up for the day...

You'd have burnt more than that just sitting down/BMR. Nice OHS - you'll be looking at doing double what you started on, so you'd be Farm's lifter of the month Grin

You got any competitions lined up?

Sugden post: So I noticed the sky is blue.
Reply: No it isn't.
Reply: Yes it is
Reply: Ah but what do you mean by blue?
Reply: Keep it simple, it's basically blue
Reply: My friend looks at the sky at a high level and he says it's blue
Reply: Ah but has it passed a test to check it's blue?
Moderator: Locked.
Sugden: Putting people's heads in their hands since 2006.

The sky isn't blue - it's colourless. The sun's light gets scattered by the atmosphere, breaks down into all the colours from red to violet (plus infrared to ultraviolet, but we can't see them so we won't include them). Blue light is scattered more during the day, which is why we perceive the sky to be blue. During periods where the light is scattered less (sunrise/sunset), the light isn't scattered quite so much and is on the other end of the spectrum - reds, orange, yellow....

I thought an U90 would be able to compete in an open weight comp, but not in an OVER 105kg comp. There was a woman that wanted to do men's skiing but she's not a man. Surely a pedantic answer should be no to OVER 105s but yes to opens?
» Deadlift suits (Go to post)06-11-2012 @ 22:33 
Sumo or conv? Get working on your lockout as suits help a lot from the floor. I get around 40kg out of a Metal Pro Squatter and I deadlift sumo. They give you less when you go conv as sumo lifters tend to have better lockouts and miss lifts at the floor, which is where the suit helps.

Cool. If you're going to train at WHL then give me a PM on here. Out of work as of yesterday so would be good to do something back at the old gym. Do you see a little old man who smokes and swears at everyone? Dave Kaye.

I just notice anything and everything, and retain all the crap I see in my brain. Nothing useful, just what we have in the fridge, who's got Spiderman socks on, random telephone numbers and other general rubbish.
» The best belt for powerlifting? (Go to post)04-11-2012 @ 11:21 
I have an inzer lever belt - the 13mm version. Some think it's a little too thick and use the 10mm one, but I find that too flimsy for my liking. The lever DEFINITELY helps and it's adjustable, and VERY quick to do/undo. You can also get a lever tighter than a buckle. for cheap, or pullum sports for quick delivery

Paul - surprised you're not a bit tipsy celebrating with that Tequila....

» Good books on powerlifting (Go to post)03-11-2012 @ 18:35 
I wouldn't bother with Benni's cookbook - the macronutrients are WAY off, as are the kcals for the macronutrients. Good ideas, but the info isn't reliable.

Think that was Paul something... what weight is he?
From what I've seen on Facebook it sounds like a good day, stupid horse riding injury prevented me from doing it!!!

Yes, his name was Paul something. 140-150? 6ft3 or something.

Competition with very sore legs.


90kg x 2
130kg x 1
160kg x 1
180kg x 1
190kg x 1 - one white light out of one
200kg x 1 - good lift
205kg x 1 - good lift

40kg x 3 - very good technique
60kg x 3 - same as above
80kg x 1 - s**te technique starts here
85kg x 1 - got it
95kg x 0,0 - failed to even clean it. I've managed 102.5/105 lots of times before, but just couldn't get it on the day. Shoulders have ALWAYS been my weakest and I am working on it.

Warmups with 60/80/100 per hand for about 5m
110kg x 15 metres. Felt very heavy when I was picking it up, but grip was solid throughout and did the whole course with no drops.

Overall, 4th position and happy with that (especially as I was by far the smallest guy there) although I know I could've done better had I not messed up FTOH. Deadlift was the most i've done since having pneumonia in Jan. Deadlifts are slowly going up.
