When you don’t pay attention – shit happens

Yesterday was a day with a bit of stress and ‘modern world’ despair (We forgot a laptop charger in Clon), but made it into the city: On the hunt for a tip adaptor & to keep up my weight sessions.

Once again life taught me to keep my focus while doing. Had my mind somewhere else for a brief moment, lost focus and grip slipped on what I was doing, and I squished my finger between the rack and a 20+ something db. Result: Blue striped sausage finger (that atleast doesn’t hurt, just being very unhandy). It’s a reminder to keep focus on what I’m doing, unfortunately it leaves me a little handicaped and keeping Muay Thai training off (again).

Anys training log down:

Monday:
Squat
10x 20kg warm up
2x 5x 30kg
2x 5x 40kg
2x 5x 45kg
2x 4x 50kg
– All ATG style. 50 felt better this week, I have a feeling if I keep at it, I be up on my 78kg (PR) soon enough. However not sure I can lift more this week with my finger, so might have yet another set back –
Goodmornings:
2x 5x 30kg
2x 5x 35kg
Deadlift
2x 5x 60kg
-Switched to a light deadlift, as could feel my lower back on the last Goodmorning. Kind of prefer Goodmornings thou, feel like they doing a better job on the hamstrings-
Pull Ups/ Chin Ups
3x 5
BoR
2x 5x 22.5Kg (that’s a guess)
-Accident happens when I was to put the DB back. Grip was so wide, so it slipped while I was awkwardly putting it back – thinking of something else. Result: Finger caught between rack and db. Could move my finger just after it happened, and it didn’t hurt overly much. Managed to go ahead for a 6kg MB for 20 deep Saxons afterwards. But later on and the day after finger swelled up and is now resembling a little bluestriped fat sausage + can’t bend it anymore due to swelling.

Sunday: Nothing
Saturday: 1 hour of Muay thai: 8 rounds on the bag, 4 rounds on pads.
discovered just how much difference there is being ‘fighter fit’ and being casually fit. Fighter fit= going 100% on the pads (and that’s not even all of it). Anyway died slowly on pads, but went for the 100%.

Give me muscles

Training to get the lost back! Been out and away from heavy weight training all summer. Am back now with a bad elbow and injured wrist. It’s not gonna keep me from finding my lost form, however – I’m being careful.

Tuesday: Birth of the FighterGirls Club (my big passion), followed by a class in Mayfield
Before FighterGirls, I walked around in the city handing out (strategically) flyers for the Club to the ladies of Cork. I truly hope some of the women I met, will jump at the chance and give it a go.
Last night was a great class because it was all me – I look forward for Tomorrow

Wednesday: Morning with very light strength training (or re-gaining my muscles slowly)
15 min skipping (warm up)

Warm up set:
10x 20kg DL
10x 20kg Good mornings

Weight set:
5x5x 50kg DL
1x 5x 20kg Goodmornings
4x 5x 25kg Goodmornings

BoR – DB
5x5x 17.5kg – Noticed: Didn’t feel it in my core, so arms are still packing a bit of power (Yay!)

Saxon Sidebends @6kg
5x 20x 6kg

Pull Ups/ Chin Ups
5, 3, 4

In the end a little fooling with the speed ball. Been ages since I’ve played with that one, so was pretty shit 😦  (haha)

In total: I’m pretty satisfied. Kept weights light and easy as to not irritate elbow and wrist, and still managed to work up a bit of a sweat. So hopefully this is the first step in claiming muscles back.

Olympic weightlifting tonight!

Friday’s strength day:
* 5 C&J (each hand)
* 5 Snatch (eh)
* 5 Pistols (each leg)

Happy summer day with Strength I

Last detox day

Monday and last day in the Blessed Herbs detox colon cleansing.

Feeling a little better today, probably because I went to the gym and worked out a bit.

* 20 min on treadmill (11kph)
* 1x 20x 25kg FCT
* 1x 20x 30kg FCT
* 1x 20x 32.5kg FCT

* 2x 10 Hamstrings
* 2x 10 Push ups
* 2x 10 Saxons w/ 5kg

Just got told off by my friend Anders Nedergaard (www.kropogblog.dk) about the detox. Told me I’m loosing muscles and it was good for nothing, which I guess is partly correct, cause I frankly feel weaker and the body would tend to go into a catabolic state without carbs and protein. My reason for doing the detox, was my previous experience where I felt, I could see the results of the internal cleanse on the outside, cause my skin looked much healthier. Also, I think it would be a fault to underestimate the sense of accomplishment, that comes with this kind of fasting. Food – which I love and take for granted, all of a sudden not available for five days and it does take a mental effort as well as physiological to keep at it.
Anyway, I look forward to eat again, whether it will be tonight or tomorrow morning. (It will depend on 2nd training today: KB and Boxercise classes at Womens Fitness in Cork.)

Challenge today: Swings with the 16kg KB in class.
