gym and chill

the above song is in swedish but might still be enjoyable for everyone. she is not angry, just disappointed. which is worse.

training is coming along nicely given it is merely one of many parts of life. recently I became curious how much I could squat (9x 175 kg, 5x 195kg and worked up to a single at 212.5 kg the morning after working the night shift). my plan for 230 kg is set. hopefully senior coach lives long enough to see it.

bench is more of a problem. yesterday I did an easy single at 135 kg, followed by 10x 100 and 9x 105. all with pause, of course. a great increase compared to a few years back. that is a small comfort, however, when all my training partners routinely bench between 170 kg and 220 kg each training session. regardless, the long term goal of 150 kg stands (just like cadia).

work is great. I’m learning so much stuff every day. even on my days off, I find the energy to read material related to the profession and I thoroughly enjoy it. a few weeks ago, by necessity, we set up a temporary mini-ICU at an ordinary ward. our efforts were successful, btw.

be good to each other.

    How do you feel about all this 8th edition background and the ever expanding Horus Heresy series?

      I like both. hard to see how they can screw it up tbh. just hope that the fallen primarchs stay with chaos (no redemption for traitors!).

      what are your thoughts?

        I don’t really read the novels so this is only what I hear second hand or see in a codex. I think the Dark Imperium setting is a really cool idea for moving the plot forward, and has lots of space for ”your dudes” and your group to play in.

        I like the HH models and forge world source books, but I prefer the mythical feeling Warhammer gave to the HH before it was explored in so many novels. That said, I haven’t read any of the HH novels apart from the start of Mechanicum.

        fair point about the mythical feeling. there is a delicate balance of exploring just enough and ruining this shit completely.

        my impression is that while some things really are described in more detail, many of the books just flesh things out a bit more. like describing marines from the different legions in slightly more detail than ”night lords have hats with wings hurr durr”. maybe I’m wrong though.

        exploring the heresy even more is not unlikely just a consequence of the great commercial success it has been so far. I wonder what will happen after the planned siege of terra books a published, what then? GW and black library has a need to churn out more books to drive miniature sales. ideas here?

        Hard to say what they’ll do after – maybe delve into the fates of any surviving primarchs and the consolidation of the Imperium after the Heresy.

        Age of Apostasy/Reign of blood would be sweet, nothing is more over the top than that. Would also closely into the 500th anniversary of events of the Reformation.

        I hope Vulkan returns and kick some chaos butt, preferably Fulgrim’s.

        the possibilities are endless.

    You using the SlingShot at all?

    That program seems to be working really well, some big increases. I’m doing something similar now for the bench, only with fewer reps (24-25 instead of 30).

    • lyftapajobbet skriver:

      no, I’ve had issues with using it (I don’t get the hang of it) and just meh.

      woho fatman recognition! it’s a slow process but gainzzzz! do you get positive results?

      • Fatman skriver:

        I’m making very slow progress on the bench. At this rate, in 5 years I might beat my all-time PR from 4 years ago 🙂 I guess at least I’m having fun?
