So I'm pretty proud of myself tonight,
had a real good workout, and on the way there felt like doing some deads
I can't take credit for that beautiful lady above, that's not me
but every word written is true
I train hard, as hard as I can on the day for my energy level
and tonight as Metallica's 'When the bell tolls' was blasting out the speakers on full I deadlifted 100kg!
yay! ~ BIG smile ~
~ BIG song and dance~
though I was not dressed as lightly as the beautiful lady above, hell no - this is Scotland, this is winter, it was 6 degrees outside!
so I had on my T, trackie daks and warm sweatshirt. Just until I broke a sweat....
(my only witness to the feat was the mirror :)
I did a post on deadlifting a couple months ago, and I can now do reps easily on 90kg
oh okay, I can do 4 reps, then 4 more, then another 4 then 3 then yadda yadda... you get my drift,
and I'm happy with that. I like my progress, I like to take my time, go slow, at a pace that suits me
It's been so good to deadlift, totally THE best exercise I have ever done and it is such a powerful movement to do, feels incredible.
I really am in heaven when I'm doing it! ha ha!
(em... what's she on??! is she really talking about deadlifting...!!?)
and if I don't indulge too much in all the tasty xmas treats out now, then I may just stay lean enough to sport a nice pair of pins like Rachel, above
and I could be the proud owner of a tush to be admired... perhaps..
though tonight, as a lil' reward I treated myself to some chocolate slathered profiteroles, yuu hhhuu mmmmeee.
They only come in packs of 12 (sheesh! really?)
so, 9 down, 3 to go...
So I remember before, going on about how good deadlifting is for you, and it really is - it has transformed me like nothing else
my core is now pretty damn strong
I am sure I could wrap myself around that big thingy above just like that pretty lithe lady (what IS that thingy?? for martial arts I reckon? I thought they used logs of iron, as in Kickboxer...)
and my arms are coming along just fine
though not as big as this impressive lady above,
what a nice pair of delts she has too, and check out that chain around her waist! cool eh? so tough!
I will be making myself a dip belt with a nice 1/4inch chain on it, since I do dips with a 15kg plate (not too bad, I do sets of 6 at 10/12 reps)
didn't wanna spend $50 plus postage on that one, though I am sure it is worth every cent, will see how I go stitching one up, rather liking the chain, all that metal *mmm*
and maybe if I keep up my deadlifting and my weighted dips, and weighted chins, then one day I will have a nice pair of guns like this pretty lass!
Such a beautiful girl eh?
I love smiles :) did I mention that before? so LOVE smiles :)
okay, so I'm finished blowing my own trumpet, patted myself on the back enough, texted my mate to brag about my lift... was congratulated then promptly put in my place :) heh heh
maybe these new hares I made will bring a little smile to you?
(yeah, that's the hand that gripped the bar that had 100kg on it...)
they are looking forward to scampering around your xmas tree! which one do you love?
omg!!! forgot to say - saw my first xmas tree tonight on the way home from the gym! wow! totally love xmas trees and that all sparkly stuff
these little pals are in a Scandinavian floral pattern (came from a Norwegian tea towel, nuff said!)
and then when I got home and looked up at the stars, as I always do - omg!! I saw THE biggest, sparkliest star I have ever ever seen, like ever!
It was to the left hand side of Orion the Hunter, and em, I reckon it could be Sirius, the dog star, and the brightest star in the sky, because it was so bright! it was like the sun!!
alrighty, not as bright as the sun, but nearly as...
hmmmm, then again, maybe it is Venus??
all this star navigation stuff is a lil' confusing for me - will have to ask my brother, he will know for sure, he studied the stars and knows where they all live in the sky, I merely admire them as they glisten away
aaah :) so many things to LOVE!
little carrot covered hares perhaps?
perfect for the centre piece decoration on the xmas table
(that little chap has a home to go to already, I'll have more hopping by in the next few days)
so LOVE the stars
so LOVE my gym
so LOVE deadlifting
so LOVE my strong body
... I could go on and on and...
so here I am - a 'selfie', taken a month or two ago.
(was for an artist's profile for my paintings actually) (real professional huh?)
Still got a little way to go with my guns eh?
I'm not into singlets (yet) or tight shorts or revealing stuffs. The most I do is turn my sleeves up, that's my vanity taken care of.
oh - forgot to boast (again!) - I now do shrugs on 170kg!!!
yeah, really! 170kg! I do 3 sets of 6/8 reps not too bad eh? I warm up with reps on 120kg, then 140kg, then 150kg
showtime is now officially over :)
I have warm ups to do....
