you gonna expand the crop operation at your new digs?

for sure.. MAJOR expansion.

more stuff in the ground (citrus everywhere). proper area for propagation. plan is to turn the land into a food forest. eventually might get some chickens, a horse (or 2) and maybe even some cattle (additionally for tax purposes). ranch life progression about to get into motion.

going to be nuts. can't wait.

pc man!

Bunch of testing for the new RMVT program. Highlights were-

Front squat- 110kg
Power snatch - 60kg (didn't have the confidence to go full depth)
C&J- 80kg (felt like I had more here. Definitely did in the clean but not sure about the jerk)
Weighted Chin- +20kg (collarbone to rings)
Weighted Dip- +20kg (nose to hand level)
Some other mobility, flexibility and handstand stuff.

C&J-

I signed up to RealMVMT again this week. I am starting a martial arts gym next year with a couple of mates (once all this lockdown shit is sorted) and have wanted to do a part time training business for years. These guys have their own certs and a pretty impressive network. The cost of entry is quite low too for the information that's on offer. It will be a nice side business and if it gets to a decent enough level I will take it full time. Financial services is largely fucked in this industry and may not exist in it's current format in 5-10 years time so it will be nice to have a plan B.

I said a few months ago that I wanted to start boxing. Unfortunately my achilles is not getting any better and because boxing involves a lot of endurance and footwork I've decided not to pursue it. However, I have chosen to start another sport- Judo. I had my first training session today and it was pretty cool. I can't remember any of the names of the techniques but I learnt how to fall sideways, front and backwards and also learnt a couple of cool throws and chokes with 1 on 1 training for 90 minutes. I think I pulled up fairly well but we'll see tomorrow. I plan on going back on Thursday for my 2nd session. At this gym they train on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Chin Ups-
7,7,6,6

Pull Ups-
4,4,3,3

Nice! Judo is badass.

Once you learn the techniques you will find your strength a huge advantage. By chance I actually came across this a little while back which I thought was interesting.



That's a cool chart. I'm planning to be in the -90kg division. Currently I'm Regional for Bench, Squat and Deadlift. I should be National for Bench and Deadlift in a few months.

Nice. How did you find your strength compared to the other guys in your first session?

Also, we need to get the Adarq martial arts squad up and running.

- run 10.13 in 50:19
T+DI 168, but turns out clouds and a light breeze make a huge difference. 4:58 average pace, pretty even throughout, and had enough energy to run 4:51 for the last complete km and run the last couple hundred meters at race pace. good stuff

- stretch
