    Westside for skinny b******s repetition upper body day

    Flat bench 45kg x 20 x 3
    Close hand tricep pressups 4x5
    Chins 4x8
    Machine shoulder press 45, 55,65,75x 10
    Standing cable curl 25,35,50 x10
    Glute ham raise 20x4
    Roman chair sit ups 25 x 4

    Last week I had 1 boxing sparring session (5 x 3minute rounds against someone witha professional license eek!), 1 MMA class, 2 TKD classes and 3 visits to the gym. I have come to the conclusion that I am not recovering quickly enough,as I am knackered all the time, despite eating 6 times a day and being asleep by 10.30, so will be abandoning the sacred 7 day interval between repeating gym sessions and willl go onto a 9 day cycle instead. Essentially, I'll be doing 1 less gym visit a week. Any comments?

    Competition @ U of T Mississauga:

    Weights in kgs:

    Weighed in 78.5

    Snatch: 85 90 95miss
    Clean and Jerk: 110 117miss 117miss :(

    Almost had third snatch attempt (bad position at bottom).

    The second c & j attempt I cleaned the weight and blacked out for 5 seconds after standing up and missed the jerk (bar choked me). Third one got the clean again but too tired to get jerk.

    Finished up w/ glute/ham raise and some pull ups.

    I don't know how you could be successfull at westside doing that?
    The less I do the stronger I get.

    I hear you. The problem has always been - conditioning or skills training :rolleyes: as my recovery time is relatively limited. So, I've finally decided that skills training is more important and will reduce the frequency of my strength training - as you say, the less you do, etc. Ah, life! Choices, choices, choices...

    Bored while taking notes so I thought I'd toss down what I did today.

    04/08/07 EASTER WORKOUT:

    Warmed up with 5 minutes on the treadmill, fast walk with a slight incline. I then warmed up and did max reps in 60 seconds with 300# on a 2" thickbar (one of the events coming up for one of my contests) and got 15 reps. Next was log presses, doing some density training with 180 to try to maximize the amount of reps I can do. Tried my Atlas stone but it was too wet and muddy to grasp, frustrating to say the least. Did some cinderblock rows to help my crushing strength, and played around with a 35# Blob (one of the heads of a 35# dumbbell cut off, great for grip strength), tossing it back and forth between my hands for 48 seconds before a drop.

    I did some tabata bagwork today, since training wasn't on due to it being Easter
    Twenty seconds all-out, ten seconds rest, repeat eight times. I'm so glad I don't have work tomorrow, I just know I'm going to be sore
