Why I hate fitness mgazines

Posted by Picasa


Took a couple of days off - Thursday and Friday - but managed to get a workout in on Saturday afternoon ( when the rain stopped )

Found a track that had some large stones dumped beside it, so after a quick text to Barry Gibson , I had a go at this

AMRAP 20mins

10 stone clean and press
100m run
10 stone bent over rows

Have no idea how many rounds I got but that was a great workout, not done bent over rows for years so was interesting to add them into a workout.

After this I found a big rock and did a couple of weighted walks for as far as I could till I dropped it.

Came home on Sunday and after unpacking/eating/uploading photos/FaceBook/Twitter/etc I logged onto the Auvest site to get todays weighted wod

400m run
30 squat cleans 60kg
400m run

Tried a squat clean with my back pack on and nearly fell on my ass, plus my wrist was sore so changed to power clean followed by a front squat

My time for this was 14mins 29secs.

Weekend away

Spent Thusday to Sunday in Ecclefechan at my friends caravan with Jax, the kids and the dog. We had a fantastic time, apart from Friday when it seemed to rain all day. We had a movie day, went to Gretna Green, went to Powfoot which is on the Solway Firth and headed to Drumanrig Castle on the way home.

Really enjoyed the time away, will need to do it again soon - maybe at the September weekend.

Box Jump - FAIL

Box jump Fun at Maverick Strength and Conditioning (Fail) from Davie Easton on Vimeo.

Box Jump - WIN

Some box Jump fun at Maverick Strength and Conditioning from Davie Easton on Vimeo.

Auvest WOD

10 minutes max handstand pushups
5 minutes max air squats
2 minutes max pullups
1 minute max pushups

Do not rest between exercises

Did the HSPU without the vest, used it as a depth gauge making sure every rep touched it.

HSPU - 40 reps
Squats - 152 reps
Pull Ups - 24 reps
Push Ups - 19 reps

Then had a bit of a play around.

A few snatches with 30kg, 40kg and one with 50kg. Then some BFT jumps.

Now, the BFT is 3 tractor tyres stacked on top of each other - I have no idea what height it is ( will get it measured). I had a few attempts yesterday and got my fet up on top but couldn't stand up. Today I managed it but nearly fell off because the top tyre has very soft side walls...but I did it!

The next attempt though was a car crash - I jumped, landed too far into the tyre then fell back...onto concrete!

Tweeked my wrist a bit and will probably have a very bruised butt tomorrow but it could have been so much worse. Got both the good jump and the bad jump on video so will post it once I get a hold of it from my mate Russell

Also got 40kg OHS for 14 reps which is a PB

Auvest WOD

Clean and Jerk 3-2-1-1-1

Worked up to 90kg for a single, which may just be a PB. It did have a bit of a press out though

Havent weighted in this week, but going by last week that is a couple of kg over body weight!

Japanese Garden

Jackie took the kids up to this local Japanese garden yesterday while I was at work. I know the park it is in, been there runing loads of ties but not been up for ages so this garden came as a surprise. It is a redesign of the garden that used to be there in the 1920's

I wil be back to this garden a lot, want to see how it grows and transforms.

Tweeked my back a little bit, not sure if it was at Fife on Saturday but haven't trained since then. Going to rest it again today and see how it is tomorrow.

I did however get a Hobo lifting platform sorted for the Hobo gym - some marine plywood on top of the wood and rubber tat is already in the gym.
