Jeff's.... kinda:
With the promise of motor pacing this weekend I wanted to get my weights done earlier in the week to ensure I'd be recovered and able to give the motorbike's rear wheel my fullest attention. This meant that I'd have to skip hanging out with Jeff and his lovely setup and instead make do with a lesser operation. Jeff being the top bloke that he is emailed me through a lovely list of things to achieve, so I took that to my local gym, as I couldn't find anything suitable at home or around the place I could step/jump onto.

2 x 20 Deck Squats
3 x 40 Box Jumps
3 x 10ES @ 20kg Step up to Lunges
3 x 10ES @ 20kg Explosive Step ups
1 x 15 @ 20kg Jumping Squats
2 x 15 @ 40kg Jumping Squats
1 x 10ES @ 20kg KB Snatches
2 x 14ES @ 20kg KB Snatches


There were a couple of variations to the routine Jeff gave me. Firstly 40 instead of 30 box jumps. The box was lower, so I figured more reps would compensate.

I did Step up Lunges before explosive step ups... and got the rep count wrong (10 instead of 5). I also noticed a lack of power/snap in the right leg.

I added additional weight for the last two sets jumping squats to speed them up. Gravity wasn't pulling my light 90kg+ frame down to the ground fast enough.

I stuffed up the first set of snatches by only doing 10 instead of 15.

I learned a few things amongst all this. Firstly I can't read/count to save myself. Secondly normal gyms don't cater for the stuff I/we do.

PMPW: 91kg
