[QUOTE=Scott Jenkins;440820]Niks log seems to encourage banter :rofl: whcih is good, b/c i like to laugh and joke about with other men. And b/c theres a few guys doing it no-one will suspect that i really long for one of them to hold me close, andtell me everything will be ok......... NO scott NO, its not ok to feels these things. I better go and do ring dips until the feelings subside, or maybe il just go and run round and round the track in my wee shorts (see avatar)....and with any luck there will be some other athletes there who can help me work on my 'form'[/QUOTE]

Damn Ricky are you psychic . I am so naive about them quotes I never even thought of changing one before or looking to see if mine had been changed.

Nik- Look forward to seeing your scores, I have no idea what the time is where you are so good luck.

Wow. It was an honor to coach Nik through the front-squats. I'll let him give his results. He was a beast on those!!!!!

Nik Nichols 11-07-2008 09:35 AM

Re: Nik
 
Read it and weep. I just weighed my self at 160lbs even(though I'm light because I've been sick).

I did the front squat challenge at 165lbs

For those who dont know the ''challenge'' it is Scott Jenkins workout of body weight front squats 1 per min, add one every min as many rounds as posible

My total was 8 rounds.

I was suprised at how winded i got from it!!

It didnt intimidate you at all, you kicked its ***!! You got like 8 rounds!! 8rounds of 205lbs is not something im looking forewrod to lol.
Did you alwasy try do all reps in a oner, or spit them up e.g. in round four, do 2 reps, rack it then rest then do another 2?

How did Brady do?

No that is what I'm saying, I did them all in one round, I was so suprised I got past round 3 and round 4 that when I got to round 8, I was so winded I stoped. I thonk i could have gotten atleast one more round or maybe two, but I forgot that I could break the rounds up.

Oh Brady didn't do it , get on to him!!!

What....let em at im lol.

Im toying with idea of breaking it up early,say from round four on, seeing if that helpes conserve energy....rather than do as many rounds in one go as i can until i stall, and then being forced to break them up.hmmm we'l see. im off to do it now.time and vid to psot later.

Finally found and read through your log, Nik. Strong work in that ultimate garage gym of yours. You should definitely have entered the photo contest; you'd have been a great candidate for the free makover.

That 8 round Painstorm score is sick. Congratulations. I'll be thrilled if I get close to it.
