Thursdays Barbell Overhead Press

Arrived at the depot for 7am. 97 deliveries and collections, with 145 parcels handled.

Left the depot at 6pm. 11hr day, boop.

Home, food prepped and some weight lifting.

4 x 52.5kg Barbell Overhead Press

5 x 47.5kg Barbell Overhead Press

5 x 47.5kg Barbell Overhead Press

Definitely hit my 5 rep max on these at the moment.

Struggled to get the 5th rep up to half way, so I’ll stick to this weight for a few weeks, until I can hit 5 reps a few times.

Didn’t decrease weight for 3rd set just because I loaded the bar incorrectly with 2 big plates rather than 4 smaller ones, so it would’ve been a hassle to take em both off and put smaller ones on for the last set.

Pooped now, didn’t take long for the days deliveries to catch up with me lol.

Until next time…

Barbell Rows and Judgment Day

Arrived at the depot for 6.50am. 105 deliveries and collections, with 190 parcels handled. Left the depot at 6:30pm.

Really busy day and loads of parcels today, spread out as it always is when it’s busy too.

Home, food prepped and then some quick weight lifting.

6 x 56.5kg Bent Over Barbell Rows

6 x 51.5kg Bent Over Barbell Rows

10 x 46.5kg Bent Over Barbell Rows

Not done these for a long while, but they felt pretty good, although the 1st set felt really heavy, but that was to be expected. The last set I squeezed 10 reps out just with good form, I could feel my back tiring so it was a good number to stop at.

So today is judgment day on the guy who owes me a lot of money. No contact, no letters or anything from him so it’s time for the court to issue a summons, we’ll see what happens next.

I may well still not end up with any money but at least this guy will have a bad credit history at the very least and hopefully a court appearance to add embarrassment, we’ll see what the court say in the next week or so.

Anyway, not worrying about that, it will sort itself out. It’s steakburger night and footy.

Until next time…

Valentines Day Deliveries

Fucking valentines day flowers.

Arrived at the depot at 7am. 96 deliveries and collections, with 174 parcels handled. Left the depot at 7pm. 12hrs. Shite.

The deliveries were spread out all over my route today. And with the addition of valentines day flowers, today was a just a pain in the arse. Not to mention it was pissing down with rain all day.

Anyway, its over now thank fuck.

Not weight lifting tonight, feeling damp and lethargic so giving it a miss.

Think a rum and some footy on the TV is in order.

Until next time…

Manic Delivery Day and Weighted Chin Ups

Phewee, today was by far the busiest day of the year.

Arrived at the depot for 7am. 103 deliveries and collections, with 174 total parcels handled. Left the depot at 6:45pm. 11.75hrs, phew.

As a whole Tuesday are supposed to be the busiest day of the week at the depot, but on my route that’s not normally been the case. However, today, oh boy, was it busy lol.

Anyway. Got home food prepped for tomorrow and then did some weight lifting.

5 x 12.5kg Weighted Chin Up

5 x 10kg Weighted Chin Up

5 x 7.5kg Weighted Chin Up

5 x 5kg Weighted Chin Up

My wrists and elbows felt fine today. No idea why they ached so much yesterday, but I felt good when I got home so went straight to the weights room. Felt strong, so did an extra set too.

Now I’ve showered, had dinner and sat down, I feel whacked, think I’ll sleep well tonight.

Until next time…

Chilled Wednesday and Weighted Push Ups

Today was the quietest it’s been delivery wise for a while, which was nice, a chilled day driving around for a change. Although it was only about 10 deliveries down on previous days, that’s about 45 minutes worth spread out through the day and makes a difference.

Arrived at the depot for 7am. 88 deliveries and collections. Left the depot at 5:15pm. 10.25hr day, boom!

Got home food prepped for tomorrow then did a short workout.

15 x 10kg Weighted Push Up Normal

10 x 10kg Weighted Push Up Wide

15 x 10kg Weighted Push Up Normal

10 x Bodyweight Push Up Narrow

10 x Bodyweight Push Up Normal

I decided to add a dumbbell on my back for some of today’s pushups, make them a little harder than normal and I could definitely feel it in my arms, they tired pretty quickly lol.

I’m not sure why but I don’t like the bench press, I never have. I have done it regularly in the past but just never felt comfortable doing the movement, so I’ve decided to give it a miss for a while and stick to weighted pushups.

I used to do loads of these so I should be back doing 25kg+ sets in no time. I might even get back doing Olympic ring pushups, I used to love the toughness of those!

Anyway. I can smell my sausages cooking mmmmm

Until next time…

Same amount as last week delivery wise but they were spread out more so the day was longer. Hey ho.

5 x 11kg Weighted Chin Ups

5 x 8.5kg Weighted Chin Ups

5 x 6kg Weighted Chin Ups

5 x Bodyweight Chin Ups

Added 1kg to the weighted chins tonight, felt about the same as last week, so will add another 1kg next week too, added an extra set on the end of just bodyweight, man the difference with no weight is awesome, I felt so light lol.

Mmmmm bacon, egg and chips for dinner, then an early night, I feel pooped tonight!

Until next time

I’ve Found a Local Raw Milk Dairy Farm!

Decided not to write anything over the weekend. Had a chillaxing Saturday and didn’t do a lot except research any local dairy farms that sold raw milk.

Since we’ve been back in Oxfordshire I’ve had to order my raw milk via the net as there hasn’t been anyone local that offered it.

Saturday I was poodling about on the net and happened to have a look at raw milk dairy farms in the UK and I noticed a new one that had cropped up last year, so I decided to visit it on Sunday.

Oh man it’s awesome. Or should I say the raw milk is awesome! The dairy farm even has a little farm shop with local meat on sale too, whoop.

So I got myself a weeks worth of raw milk from them as a tester and a nice juicy steak and some sausages, mmmm mmmmmm.

Anyway. Sunday was also tidying up the garden day, which was cool. It was sunny and crispy cold. Messing around with dirt and plants, ace.

Didn’t do any weight lifting this weekend though. Not sure why, I just wimped out for some reason, hey ho.

Today was work day. At the depot for 7am. 97 deliveries and collections. Left the depot at 6:15pm. 11.25hrs, meh. Should’ve left 30-45 mins earlier, but I arrived back just as one trailer was full and being swapped for an empty one, so I lucked out.

Got home, food prep and some weight lifting.

5 x 47.5kg Barbell Overhead Press

5 x 42.5kg Barbell Overhead Press

10 x 37.5kg Barbell Overhead Press

I really need to do some squats and deadlifts this week, which I think I’ll leave until Thursday and the weekend so that any doms can arrive for the weekend when I’m not working lol.

Until next time…
