Good stuff GIM, all the best on the exam!

And don't forget summer is coming, which means more free time to lift heavy weights.

Plyometrics - I am furious as my session was cut short due to work. I was not able to complete everything i had set out to do.

NOTES ON THE DAY:

The two sessions that occurred today went well. The issue is the fact that I had to miss footy practice again today due to work.

The other thing is that I am gonna have to rethink my usual weight training session to be more 'user friendly' and challenging. Well as it is week one there is a lot of room for improvement for the weeks to come. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Well Friday, Saturday and Sunday were a wash. I managed to injure both my left knee and right ankle during the game on Saturday so I've had some issues with them the past couple of days.

Luckily this is a bi-week so I'll get enough time to rest up from my injuries and be ready for the Canada Day Long Weekend game in Ottawa.

Well here is yesterdays workouts.

DATE: July 18th 2007

TREADMILL
DURATION: 20min
DISTANCE: 2.03miles
LEVEL: 2min @ 4,5,6,7,8mph X 2
EXTRA: 20lb Weight Vest used

I was not able to complete a longer HIIT session as my knee and ankle are still tender.

<font color="blue">DAY 1</font> - 3:10PM

BENCH PRESS
5/135
5/155
5/185
5/205
5/225

POWER CLEANS

4/155

DIPS

ROPE PUSHDOWNS
10/80
10/85
10/90

Overall it was a okay session. It felt good to do some Power Cleans again, it been so long sense I've done them last.

Hopefully this momentum can be carried over for weeks to come.

Looking good mate..
I really didn't think Auusie Rules was that big in Canada?
How did you get involved in it?

Where I live in Australia though, Rugby League is definately a more popular game..

keep it up mate [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Hows is it going Catch a Fire?

Here in Ontario we got the largest and highest level Aussie Rules league outside of Australia. I got involved in the by chance, I stumbled on the league site and decided to contact a team and give it a go. I haven't retreated it sense, well minus the injuries. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

And mate I must say it is a fantastic game, but only the Aussies would have invented those funky hand balling rules. Punching the ball is something I've never heard of until I joined an Aussie Rules team.

And I am going to say that you are either from New South Wales or Queensland? I am wrong?

Hi ya boys and girls!

So this week I am feeling a lot better, I had an appointment with my AT this weekend and had some adjustments done. So far I am a walking disaster! My right ankle, left knee and lower back are all suffering injuries. But things are getting better, I had my hips re-adjusted as well as shoulders as they have been out of wack.

Any who here is the plan for this week in a FUN and EASY to understand CHART! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
