One week done and so far I've managed 11% and 12km of my swimming challenge.
I did 3,950m in 1h20m today so not bad at all.
I should be able to smash the average for the 108km challenge of 133 days.

Over the weekend I decided I'm going to try and not cut corners in the gym. Less machines and more barbell (mostly for rows and shoulder exercises), try and go more in the morning instead of late in the evenings, try to make sure I eat better and all that (I don't eat badly, but could do better) etc.

So obviously this morning I turned off my alarm and slept in instead of going to the gym and I'm having burgers this evening...

Solid stuff.

Pulled a 250kg deadlift today. Very pleased. Still sitting at 95kg too so haven't eaten my way to it.

So after almost breaking my right Big toe last week, i almost broke my left big toe last night just to keep things symmetrical. strawberry floats sake. Hobbling around like an old man again today. :fp: I love BJJ but i do wonder if this wear and tear on your body is really worth it.

I was told to take six weeks out after surgery. It's been 11 days... when do we think I can get back on the bike in the gym? :shifty: - serious withdrawal symptoms...

Youll be grand, get in a quick workout :lol:
One of my favourite things to watch on YT is watching bullshit martial arts get exposed. Some of this stuff is ridiculous, grown men thinking they can use the force to fend off attackers :lol:





the final fail in this video is incredible :lol:

I love in the video where one guy charges full tilt boogie into a 40yr old woman and strawberry floating flattens her, hears her sobbing, realizes "oh gooseberry fool I strawberry floated her up", and then starts thrashing around on the ground like he's pretending her chi energy just had a delayed reaction on him :lol:

gooseberry fool so after getting strawberry floating rekt non stop at BJJ for ages, I got my hands on a newbie tonight and took out months of frustration :lol: I feel bad, I told him "don't worry, well roll nice and light". About 10 seconds later I was choking the life out of him :lol: well, I don't feel that bad...

So I've started doing StrongLift again... can someone help me with the bent over barbell row? I think my technique is okay but I do feel my lower back a bit afterwards - normal?

I dislike bent over rows, they don't feel normal to me. Maybe replace with pull ups or weighted pull ups if you can do those?

Because of the stress on the back caused by totally free weights, rowing is something I am not against doing on cable machines.

Could try chest supported rows but the set up can be a nuisance.

doing the bent row properly will give your lower back a work out isometrically but yeah if its sore and affecting your SQ & DL then switch to chest supported or cable rows

Finally finished my first sprint triathlon yesterday, after failing one in September. Completed it in 1:46, which I'm pretty happy with. Fell off my bike on one of the last corners, it was very sharp and I didn't realise it was a turn until quite late. The ground was wet and my breaks locked, I felt myself begin to fall so tired to readjust my weight but over compensated too much so fell the other way, but at least I was able to leap from my bike and roll. Hurt like hell, but I've only got a grazed elbow and got sore shoulder. Might do another at some point.
