Lessons from S&C course
Or, lunges hurt. Lots.
A quick blog entry between a lifting session and spin. Started with deep/full squats, 3 x 10 @ 60kg - not much weight, my balance and technique at these sucks. More of a technique session for squats, given my still injured achillies, although I could feel my VMO doing some work at the bottom of the squat. On to bench for some balance, easy enough, then lunges. I haven't done much in the way of one leg stuff for a few months, so I slapped the empty bar on my shoulders and did 3 sets of 12 @ 20kg (unweighted olympic bar). I have much technique to learn ... my balance was all over the shop and I was leaning forward a lot. Bad! Must arrange a time to see Peter Cayley or someone else to fix my bad technique. Finished off with deadlifts, but I was too tired to push them much, and only did 3 x 10 @ 90kg. Overall the session, while hard, felt unsatisfying. Nothing really felt stable or strong. Maybe it's the leg injury, maybe it's residual fatigue from running on Saturday too, my legs haven't felt good since then. I dunno ... I'm going to ride at spin tonight and share the session duties with the Foxy Ox (Nath) so I'll squeeze in 30 mins or so on a trainer tonight, will see if I have any power on the bike...
Time to pack stuff and get going!
