Thanks Peter. Yes i trained tonight and did what Chris always advised - hang from pull up bar at end of workout. As mine is outdoors, i was able to gaze up at the beautiful sky and think of him. Hard to take in, feels like a bad dream. Today started a split routine, reluctantly accepting im not 20yrs old anymore.....
Yes still on my singing journey, still determined!
Thanks,Colin.

Tuesday
Another less than stellar workout on pinch. Hmm. Yet the leg workout from hell yesterday was that brutal my hips ached in the evening. It started out with a super easy warm up and then I hit the wall on the heavy stuff. The only other difference to my routine was a short early-ish visit to town to the bank for some work I'm getting done on the house.

Two Hand Pinch
to 90.2-kilos x 20 total reps - needs to be BETTER!

In other news I'm now repping for a UK based grip company GodsofGrip - hit me up for a 10% off code if you need to

Yesterday i was away for the day so got the chance to visit a gym, about 45 mins from home. I was very pleased with its facilities. Everything there that a muscleman or powerlifter could ever want. No wonky incline benches, no dodgy dumbbells, and well maintained machines. Plenty of plates. One thing missing was comradery though. I said hello to a few users and smiled, but no-one replied. Others had headphones on. Others were mucking about on their mobile phones. When i was growing up in my gym, we truly were a pseudo family!
Anyway did some chest and lats, then stepping machine. Just going light these days. Thanks,Colin.

to 105-kilos x 5 reps

Hammer DB Curls
to 90-kilos x 13 reps - so damned hard

OHTE

I think the higher reps on rows wore me out for today
