Red Beards Gym Junkie Rebirth.



  • Am working at a gym now so I had better start working my butt off again to look the part.  Have been back training seriously for two weeks.  Am on a 12 week crusade to regain previous PBs.

    [b]This week. (WK2)[/b]

    Monday:  Deep BB Squat 140kgs 3X5.  Followed by Leg Ext,Leg Curl, Calf and ABs.

    Wedneday:  Bench Press 120kgs 3X5.  Followed by Flyes, DB SMP, Close Grip and ABs.

    Friday:  Deadlifts 160kgs 2X5, 170 KGs 1X3  Followed by Chins, Rows and Curls. No ABs.

    No cardio whatsoever this week.  Too tired!

    [b]Goals by Week 12.[/b]

    Bench 140 kgs @ 5 reps
    Deep Squat 160 kgs @ 5 reps (Perfect technique 90 deg)
    Deadlift 200kgs @ 5 reps.

    Need to get bodyweight closer to the tonne again.



  • Good luck Bro. Sound like a active man. The coaching must help you a lot with the sprinting.  :nta



  • well done RB, was watchting that programme on 20/20 Thursday night and thought, "there's Red Beard"  (OK, that's plain nasty - apologies in advance).

    Should be a good contest between you and Cyril on the bench press front - although pound for pound at the moment you would have it over the 139kg behometh!!

    I may have it on power to weight but Im interested to see how much will Cyrill bench when he really cranks it up after a few more weeks?



  • yeah RB, he is flying at the moment - mind boggling when you see him with 3 20kg plates on each side, sucks.  Think that'll be my target for this year - 140kg - previous best 137.5, at the moment might be able to crank out a single at 120-125.

    Thats some big lifting there RB well done. Did deadlifts the other night for the first time in ages, partially thanks to the grippers alluded to in the grip strength thread I was able to do a lot better than I have done previously but deadlifts are farkin brutal, whole body was trembling and I was seeing stars by the end of it !!



  • [b]Monday[/b]  Week Three

    [b]Squat 140kgs (2X5),  150kgs (1X5)
    CG LPD  91 kgs (5X8)
    Bench 100kgs (1X5), 120kgs (2X5)[/b]

    No abs yet again!

    Am getting reasonably serious about doing some cardio tomorrow.

    Throw in the abs at the end of your cardio session - I'll crack out 50 sit ups at the end of each rowing session - just roll onto the floor and start sitting - a habit now, otherwise would never do them either!



  • [b]Tuesday[/b]

    [b]Cardio.[/b]

    Yes I actually did some.

    40 minute jog with RB Junior 'the pace car' riding alongside on his bike.



  • Is that at Big Keith's gym RB?

    Yep.  I actually work there in the evenings a few nights a week.  Hence thes udden push to get cracking tino some respectable sort of shape!



  • Ha, yeah it is funny when you get nutrition or exercise advice from someone who clearly doesn't use it. However, I'm sure you look like you know what you're doing.

    Another possible career change on the cards?

    I need the extra hours because Ive just bought a house.



  • Wednesday.

    Warm Up: Row.

    Stand BB Press 60/5 70/5 80/5 80/5 85/5
    Seated Calf Raises and Stand BB Curls.

    No Abs.

    Managed to pinch a nerve in my neck/trap.  Old scrummaging wear and tear (from having to play loosehead) rearing its ugly head again.



  • Thursday

    [b]MORE CARDIO[/b]
    30 minutes.  Running programme on treadmill.  Nothing too intense just finding my feet again (literally).

    Followed by ABs and even a stretch or three.



  • Friday

    [b]Weights[/b]

    Squats (80% of Mondays top weight) 5X5

    Bench Press 100(5) 120(5) 130(2)

    Deadlifts  100(5)  140(5) 160(5) 180(3)

    Followed by half an hour of one one one scrum practice with a wily old Swamp Fox prop in the fitness class room.

    Awesome session!



  • Good lifting there Red.

    Thinking of incorporating dead lifts into my routine now, but never had any instruction in how to do them so a bit nervous of fucking my back up.



  • Go to [url="http://www.rugbysmart.co.nz"]www.rugbysmart.co.nz[/url] and log onto the inseason training programme.  Click on the video clip for BB Squat/Deadlifts on one of the weights days and you will get a vid of squat and then deadlift technique



  • Like RB says - that is a good site.

    Also, start out with really light weights to make sure your technique is good. Get side-on to the mirror and make sure it looks like the video from 1st rep to last, because when you're farking tired you'll bend your back and then you WILL fuck it up!



  • Cheers Gents!
