crouchtouchset: Training 3 days/wk seems light on paper, but the amount of work I’m putting out really makes me enjoy having 4 off days to rest and recover. Getting these minimum rep challenges (last sets are generally get AT LEAST this many reps, but rep it out til failure or near failure) feels like I’m…

Always sick on my Birthday. Only downside to August.
Crunching some programming numbers, loads, intensities etc. Who would have thought that uni subject in excel would have actually paid off.
In need of some topics for some Q&A’s, so if you have any questions you’d like to get an answer to, fire away. Fitness, rugby, strength and conditioning, coaching or anything related etc
Averaging 2x 100g protein shakes per day (120g of powder) for the last 3-4 weeks. Kidneys, why you no shutdown?

Three former players in Australian U20 team. Great stuff.
Finally decided to “outsource” my own training, one way or another
Looking to test the audio post format on my iPhone tumblr app. Any questions?

Starting to think a 24hr fast the day after a massive deadlift session may not have been the best idea in terms of recovery.
Latest idea: a podcast focusing on fitness/health/s&c etc
Working on a seminar about conditioning for Rugby 7s. Completely new and unique content you won’t find elsewhere.

My current programming is great. Very happy with it. However, my current goals and the programming do not align perfectly. If I was in a hypercaloric state with the goal of getting bigger and stronger, this program would appear to be near perfect. Currently, having 400lbs+ on my back twice per week while doing plenty of other activity and eating hypocaloricly is leaving my recovery a little...
Tired of everything
Current Training Schedule
Tuesday: Volume Bench Thursday: Intensity Squat Saturday: Intensity Bench Sunday: Volume Squat *Saturday and Sunday can combine key elements into one session if required. “Bench” and “Squat” refers to the primary lift, but most of session is spent in a range of movement patters, especially horizontal and vertical pulling on “bench” days and hip extension...
Just read someone saying none of the Aussies had a meaningful game. Know much about rugby? Pocock had probably the game of the tournament by an individual. It also shows how bias the average fan is to only half the game. South Africa dominated territory and possession, but they did not dominate the game. The game is more than just attack and for Australia to make three times the tackles that...

Really need to turn this project idea into a seminar/presentation.
Really thinking I want to do something for the RWC. Commentary, discussion type thing, but not sure what.
