Training today was a little different in that the entire session was captured by the amazing eye and camera of Lee Archer.
I had booked a shoot with Lee a few months back -my goal being to have him shoot an actual training session.
Different to what I had done in the past I did not want anything posed.
In keeping with my goals at the present I wanted to show hard work and the muscle shown is while doing the hard work.
In-fact I only struck one arm pose at the end as my forearms looked freaky.
The rest of the shoot I wore a vest, track pants and plenty of chalk.
Jo did the shoot with me and the same goals applied, just train and Lee did the rest.
I think the whole shoot/session took under an hour.
We shifted some good iron – Jo 55kg Rack Shoulder Press -myself 77.5 – for sets of 5
Close Grip Rack Press again Jo in the 55’s – me low 80’s.
We just did our session we should have done Tuesday and loved it.
After the photos I did for my 50th I knew I could grow and still be really lean. Having not trained in a vest since last October I could see a huge change in size and fullness.
The condition was around the same without any thought given to a look– it was there.
I could kick myself sometimes- after all those years of stressing before shows.
The look now is better without any thought given to it – all I did was just crack on with training and just ate basic.
I must say Jo looked real good –strong, full, healthy, in-fact Lee commented on her strength several times.
The photos will be used for this site and for my new book early next year.
Dino Bodyweight Day tomorrow and I hope Lou my son will film that for you guys.
Have an awesome day – love ya all Ian
