Logging this here as a.... reminder? motivation? goal setting? for good purpose anyway:

Top 10 M 40-44:
16:27 , 18:56 , 19:02 , 21:00 , 21:48, 21:58 , 22:09 , 22:22 , 22:44 , 22 :44

Top 10 M 45-49:
16:48 , 18:00 , 18:28 , 18:54 , 19:30 , 19:58 , 20:14 , 20:26 , 21:07 , 21:26

Damn, next age group is harder,  22' gets you in top 5 in 40-44 but not even top 10 in 44-49. Anyway, that changes from event to event, just wanted to have a clear map of what it takes to get some serious ranking.

Just saying!  ;) 8) :lololol:

haha yup. some fast folks there.

dudes getting even more serious as they approach 50.. understandable.

18 October 2018

Bodyweight@session : ???
Soreness : none
Injuries/aches : shoulders hurting from being hit from the bar at HPCs. lol funny

1½ hours full court basketball.
All good. Endurance, speed, strength, vert, all good. Still gassing out though. I think that from a basketball perspective, my aerobic base is solid, i need to improve my anaerobic abilities. I have to ( and i wanted to, regardless of bball ) bring back tempo work in my running sessions.

Gotta start running again. No real run since previous Saturday's race. Just 20 mins bike and 1 bball session (ok 1 more bike today and 1 more bball tomorrow ). Not a dramatic off  but gotta get back at it relatively soon.

Also, i want to buy a smart watch. I was thinking Samsung galaxy watch ( im a samsung guy, got mobile and TV and i am really happy with them ). Note that the strongest reason for getting it is for fitness tracking. Samsung watch is a great all around choice. But the Samsung running app on my mobile (samsung health) is very basic, it keeps only total time, total kcals and 1km splits. No custom laps, no other auto metrics. e.g. if from 1.5km to 2.5km i do 4', but 1 to 1.5 / 2.5 to 3 was walking , like 5' each, then the log will say 2nd km was 7 minutes and 3d km was 7 minutes, the intermittent 1km PR is lost.

I searched a bit the reviews but couldn't find what i wanted. Before i dig deeper, can you guys tel me:
Long shot : Is there someone with a samsung watch? Or someone that can easily find the full specs of the samsung watch fitness tracker?
For a larger target group : Is there a mobile app (android) that does such complicate measurements? Ideally i would like a full report like those that adarq posts. 12 mins test, fastest km fastest mile fastest idk what. That's garmin right? Is that from a built in app? Or from a post-processor that i can download too?

If i can get good/complex measurements with an app, i will prefer the samsung watch. If not, then i will opt out the smart/cell stuff and will buy a garmin watch. 

Thanks and cheers!  :lololol:

mapmyrun measures pace continuously and works on laptop and phone. i haven't used it to program workouts since i got a garmin but iirc the phone app does that as well. adarq uses strava.

as with many things, the basic version of mapmyrun and strava have decent but limited functionality (although it sounds like more than samsung fitness app), and if you pay you get more bells and whistles. for example i get 1 km splits in addition to the timeline of my pace*, but if i paid for an mvp membership i could get 100m and 500m splits. mapmyrun syncs automatically with my garmin, as would strava if i used that.

*and elevation, although the garmin is pretty inaccurate on that.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

Ah that is very useful, thanks! Ill give those a try and probably get the samsung watch which offers a greater level integration and is much more useful to me than a garmin.

Bodyweight@session : ???
Soreness : none
Injuries/aches : don't remember

1½ hours full court basketball.
Again all around good. Good endurance, speed, strength. And a bit more than good vert/spring, feels like my body is always ready for a good jump now. Maybe it is the power cleans. Ill take it. Must do rim jumps sometime soon.

Friday was a day off here so was away on a mini vacation till Sunday midnight. Not a total waste, got in some insane volume of (recreational/touristic) walking, e.g. Saturday was ~15km!!!  :o

1 November 2018

Bodyweight@session : ???
Soreness : glutes, traps, some shoulders and triceps
Injuries/aches : don't remember

1½ hours full court basketball.
Little improved endurance, no gassing out this time, there were tired sections but not totally gassed out.
All else the same, which is good all around for my standards. Some short dist HIIT would help now but i don't see it happening.
Vert was springy again, it has to be the power cleans.

7 November 2018

Bodyweight@session : ~86kg , finally it moved up
Soreness : chest and lats a bit, also calves, wtf?
Injuries/aches : none

HANG POWER CLEAN:
10@20kg
5@30kg
5@40kg
5@45kg
5@50kg
5@55kg ( +1 rep )
3@60kg
2@65kg ( +1 rep )
0@70kg
0@70kg ( extra set )
6@55kg ( +1 rep )
8@50kg ( +2 reps )
-More progress, very strong. However 2 failed PR attempts were close but not that close.

BICEPS Z-BAR CURLS:
10@32,5kg ( +2,5 kg )
10@32,5kg ( +2,5 kg )
10@32,5kg ( +2,5 kg )
9@32,5kg ( +2,5 kg ) , ( -1 rep )
-Finally lost a rep. Very very strong though, fourth time in a row adding weight. Some ego pump from curling 10kg plates plus something (1.25kg , lol )

TRICEPS ROPE PUSH DOWNS:
10@120lbs ( +10 lbs )
10@120lbs ( +10 lbs )
9@120lbs ( +10 lbs ) , ( -1 rep )
8@120lbs ( +10 lbs ) , ( -2 reps )
-Reached limit strength here too. Still, very strong.

STATIONARY BIKE:
25 mins: 12km / 180kcal worth.
-Sweet sweat.

I need to find a way to break the 70kg plateau at HPCs, been stuck at it for ages. Checked log, last time i was in them again i was doing 65kg triples but still unable to to a single @70.
Volume dropsets like i do now are probably useless. Should do more near-max doubles and singles. Should also do some high pulls.
I like olifts very very much, i enjoy them, especially HPCs. And although it seems a very very long shot, I'd love to be able to clean 80kg.
