No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

    It's been a while since I kept a log on here, but since I'm starting to run a strength-centered program again and this place still feels like home, why not.

    My main goals at the moment are getting stronger, supporting my rugby performance and the usual "getting yuge and shredded and stuff"
    The last two or so years were spent lifting on and off, I'm not sure what my 1RM in the big lifts is at the moment, but I'll probably find out soon. Strength training will be via the Texas Method, conditioning will be somewhat varied.
    Week schedule in season will be something like this:
    Mo Intensity Day
    Tu Rugby Practice
    We DL Day with accessories and conditioning
    Th Rugby Practice
    Fr Intensity Day
    Sa Game/Open Mat/Conditioning
    Su Game/Open Mat/Conditioning

    Short-/mid-term goals are:
    RHR <53bpm
    DL over 200kg
    20" Neck
    Blue Belt in BJJ

    Life getting in the way big time this week, more rest for my sore legs though.
    Yesterday: Rugby practice. Missed the first 30 minutes due to traffic, then defensive strategy and drills followed by lineout work. Intensity 7.5/10
    I got poked in the eye and learned that we'll get a scrum machine next week. I'm stoked!

    Big rugby game today, didn't get the W unfortunately, but we have improved leaps and bounds in the last week, at least it was a close one. I caught a bunch of headknocks today and I'm pretty sure I'll be sporting two black eyes and at least one giant bump on my head tomorrow... Intensity 9.5/10
