Am still here, dw.

Last week got a bit stressed out preparing for this competition i was going to (european quiz championships) in bulgaria over the weekend, so training time got consumed by cram revision time for that at, and that was pretty draining so I didn't have much energy for training. Did do a sort of makeshift OAC session last Thursday, just testing out strength in hangs are various points in the motion -- feels stronger than I've ever been before, and the soreness was not debilitating which suggests a comparatively high level of preparedness at this stage. Got back Sunday evening and was exhausted (about 10 hoours sleep from Thurs->Sun which isn't great), so didn't do any proper training, but just king of messed aroudn with OAC negatives/isos and assisted stuff through the day (probably slightly stupid to do OAC stuff withoout a full warmup, so will be a bit more structured going forward).

Will probably run later today.

Quiz went well, got a bronze medal in the team thing and had a few other top 15 finishes.

blah, had a cold last few days, looks like i'll be back to normal tomorrow, i hope.

have been doing "grease the groove" oac work, i guess you could call it. has been fun, feeling strong. looking forward to getting back on a normal programme for that though -- think i can profitably do oac stuff without it being hellishly taxing now, so will make that the main focus in strength stuff, with weighted chins weekly as supplement.

Good to be working out again!

Felt strong. Satisfying AF to do OAC work like that without feeling like I'm wrecking myself.

Think if I can hit a 10s iso @ 90* with BW I'll be very close to an OAC.

Training still nit been very structured, though OAC progress been good. Managed a successful BW OAC from 90 degrees on left, couldn't quite manage that on my right. Want to get back to running and structured training soon though.

damn nice!!

Thanks dude!

Back to logging properly, hopefully also back to training properly. Trying to build volume with those heavily assissted reps, need to get used to breaking out of the bottom in a deadhang, etc.

Still sore from Sunday. Forearms will be sore for days from this, I can tell. Was fun. Good to get mind off election stress.

BW - 67.7

Workout

Chins
BW x 3, 3
+8 x 2
+24 x 1

OAC negatives
-16 x 7s
BW x 10s, 10s, 7s

Assisted OACs
-16 x 2, 2  :personal-record:

Deadhangs
HC@24mm
BW x 5s
HC@21mm
BW x 5s
HC@18mm
BW x 5s
HC@15mm
BW x 7s, 7s, 7s, 7s, 7s

Dips
BW x 5
+8 x 8, 8, 8

Notes

Still sore from climbing. Still sad from Thursday, fucking apocalyptic result.

Anyway

10s negatives feels like a good milestone. Similarly, I had never hit a double on any OAC thing, no matter how assisted, and that feels big to me, since they were done totally deadhang. Being able to break that deadhang bottom position twice, even with assistance, feels like a strong step in the right direction.

Climb wednesday, may (should?) start running again before then.

yeah man, there's a ton of bouldering gyms around london, it's really a growing sport. My sessions are still a little bit incoherent, I don't quite go frequently enough yet to have a thorough sense of how to implement a more structured sort of training. If I want to make proper improvements I need to be going 2-3/week, which I might make an effort to do once I've got the OAC...

Climb

~2 hours -- managed a "blue" route at the gym for the first time, and then climbed a second one. They're graded v4-6, fwiw. Very stoked on that. Amusingly my best style of climb isn't really strength based/big move routes, but ones where balance or leg strength are the main thing (the first blue one involved doing almost a pistol squat from an awkward position, so it's good I can still do those).

At the end of the climbing sesh, I did some OAC negatives, for fun. One @ BW on each arm, then two + 4kg on each arm just for larks. Doing weighted negatives is probably not super smart, especially while fatigued, but whatever I wanted to give it a go. Could control pretty well all the way down to the bottom. Have to say it is way nicer doing OAC work on a pullup bar that you have to jump up to, and which has loads of space to its sides, as compared to a cramped chinup tower...

Anyway, super awesome session.
