Power Day 2

Seems we have gone off on a tangent what with everything over the next few weeks.

But do you know what?

It is bloody awesome.

A few things in the works this morning so I spotted for the guys at the gym at 6am.

Then did what I had to do and trained later in the day at Bodyindesign headquarters (home). Along with my sidekick Jo –who trained twice today (greedy).

I have re-jigged the entire program and settled on two power days and one bodyweight/neck/abs day a week.

Picked this idea up from Brooks Kubik’s awesome book Dinosaur Bodyweight Training.

The bodyweight day I have been doing anyway all I have done is drop a big weights day and programed the bodyweight stuff in.

The idea being we can gain strength for Jo’s meet and I can cover all bases for Debs –Jo and I.

Let me settle in this program for a week or so and I will outline it for you under programs.

We have also been working on some tracking/journal sheets so along with me, if you like you can fill them out.

When I have used them and made sure we have everything we need in them I will let you guys know.

All you will need to do is email me and I will shoot them to you.

Print em – fill em -file em.

That way you can track everything – training – a base eating plan and keep a checklist on recovery work I bang on about all the time.

Keep you up to date as we progress with them. They are just in the test stage at present.

Seated Rack Press Thick Bar

The bar weighs 46kg on its own – with weight added I used 66kg off pins from a dead stop 3 x 5

Flat Dumbbell Bench 25kg 3 x 8

Dumbbell Rows 32.5kg 3 x 8

Close Bench Press Thick Bar off Pins 2 inch off chest 71kg 3 x 5

Standing Dumbbell Curls 20kg 3 x 8

Calf Raise 1 Leg 15kg – deep stretch – and high contraction 3 x 10



Good heavy basic session all reps smooth tight and precise

I kept the same weight for the prescribed reps for the 3 work sets after warm ups –All I will do now is increase the weight a little each week

On Thursday I will post about the bodyweight session and Saturday will be the same as last Saturday

I have done a couple of runs and a huge amount of walking so recovery works in there

Like I said – let me this program through a few sessions and then I can get you guys set up on and tracking on sheets

Love to ya all Ian
