    I forget, where are you going? I remember it's somewhere not near here at all. Will there be internet there? Or even electricity? When are you coming back? When are you leaving? I miss you already.

    I see you now MoM.

    I'm going to New Zealand. There will be electricity. I will still post when I have intarnet access. I might have to post a week or two's worth of updates at a time, though. I will also post updated photos at the first of every month and some videos of weird training we do.

    I'm thinking of changing my log's name to:

    DICK LOG: Transient Kiwi Hobo Strength

    Maybe I should just start yet another training log.
    Because of you I now pseudo Identify with Rich or Dick, neither of which are my name.

    My right hip hurts a lot right now when the knee is raised and then rotated out, rasing the foot up. Think bringing the knee up to a 90degree angle, then rotating it clockwise. FUCK it's acute.

    None of the S&P has updated for me in over a day. Other sites are loading fine. What's up?

    THURSDAY
    Session 3-Fitness: partner runs 140m (two field widths) with ball held in front while you stay behind the sideline and perform either burpees, pushups into bridges, clockwalks, tuck jumps, or situps until partner returns at which point he does the exercise and you run. That is one repetition. One set is at least five repetitions and so includes all the aforementioned exercises and at least 700m running. If players fail to carry the ball in front, run sprints and return. If players ask how many reps we're doing, they are unanswered and one is added to the end. One minute water break, 2 sets performed.

    Today was a solid good day. Not too great, not monumental, but not bad either. Hard work, hard results. I'm doing so many sets of different weight now that I'm going to write it like this, W x R x S to simplify if possible.

    Nice training.

    Have you ever tried Fireman Carries/Sprints or Stairs?

    I did humanweight (partner on your shoulders) squats for a while, and have sprinted hills.
    Sometimes we do fireman carry shuttles in conditioning for rugby, but we don't focus on developing them.

    I have not carried a human up hills or stairs except to make love.

    THURSDAY
    (Rugby Conditioning, Intense)

    FRIDAY

    Snatches
    40kgx3, 10 sets
    50kgx3, 3 sets
    60kgx1, 5 sets

    Cleans
    50kgx3, 5 sets
    50kgx5, 2 sets
    60kgx3
    70kgx3, 5 sets (took a break here)
    80kgx1
    90kgx1
    100kgx0,0,0,1 (eek)

    BTN Overhead Press (I really liked these and am considering making them my primary press now that I'd like to return to shoulder work. I have heard ill of them as well, though.)
    40kgx10, 3 sets

    Overhead Squat
    20kgx5, 2 sets
    20kgx10

    Felt much weaker, as I landed 105kg clean on Monday with better form. Could be the conditioning or that it was day 5 of my 5-day lift/conditioning cycle. Perhaps I should make Friday a light day, and focus on hitting bigger weights on Mondays...

    Tons of Front Squats / partials.

    I've been instructed to keep the weight forward and press my knees down over my toes. If I continue to squat with my ass far back I won't develop power in the oly lifts and I won't develop flexibility in my ankles.

    The going is slow and frustrating, as I know I have strength, but I can't develop it in my normal range of motion, because my normal range of motion isn't athletically healthy and can't accommodate for consistent olympic lifting. One of my coaches reckons it will be 12 months before I complete enough progressive work to perform the lifts with flexibility.

    Conditioning has worked up to finishing practices with 8x200m sprints with 10-15 seconds rest between sprints.
