Awesome.

Already spoke about tuesday body weight above I think -

Wednesday was boxing/ cardio/core.

thursday rest.

Friday Weights - Chest and Legs, light jog.

This morning the young fella got up at 6am and bravely asked if I wanted to go on a Parkrun.
Initially I dismissed his request, then thought about it - first of all he would have set the alarm to get up and then have the courage to ask, and i’ve been encouraging him to get a bit fitter - man, I’m being an asshole here - so i got up, took him Down to Paradise Point for the park run, and pushed out an agonizingly close 30:04 over the 5kms.

Have to say to get up and do it with less than an hours notice, and to smash out a 30 min 5kms, I’m not all that mad.

Tomoz morning a boot camp with friends before work.

I have a feeling we will be hearing from AD and his management some time very soon. We are not coming across as desperate as we were for LM and we learnt a big lesson with how the media can portray us. I like how Madge is playing this, we’ve thrown him an offer and if he wants it or if souths pitch in then let’s table it up. AD definitely has talent, but the world won’t come to an end if we miss out on him. He needs us more than we need him atm.

This is the type of realistic assessment of our club that I like. We are the ones in the box seat. We have great opportunities available for quality players who are prepared to accept hard work and a fair wage. If you want to be overpaid or you don’t want to work hard than go to another club.

Mmm? So we are looking for players who don’t want to be paid highly and want to work harder than most players.
That should attract a better than average response. Should we get in extra people to man the phones?

No we are looking for players that want to win a comp. That takes hard work and it requires getting a talented team on the park. One the key factors in getting a talented team on the park is not overpaying players.

You mean players like Teddy? He has talent and wanted to win a comp?

Teddy is a prime example of a guy that is extremely hard to build a team around if you are a club on the up like us. He is a primma donna with no loyalty at all. Great player but he is the sort of guy who you don’t give your back too unless you want a knife in it.

Spot on. The gimp is a mercenary. He wanted a club with plenty of cash that were willing to provide him with the soy-latte lifestyle (and give him the Hollywood teeth). Hence Unca Nick ticked all the boxes.

He’s not.

The Tedescos are well off.

Like kids don’t have to work ever if they were brought up like that, well off.

Money isn’t the issue, and the kid was already a soy-latte lifestyle kid, just from the country.
Ulitmately they promised him success, and lordy has he found it.

Then Latrell talk.

Jeez, the Idea of Jennings and BJ Leilua on one side… thats a cracker, and the size.

Just remember boys, we used to trot out DWZ and Naiqama on one edge…

MWZ is so average.
Naiqama is cool tho.

Never a lack of effort from those lads - but really worlds apart in size compared to Jenko and BJ.

For those of you who are curious about the myzone trackers, I think they are about 69 bucks for the basic one - which I use, or you can get a you beaut one that doens’t need to be connected via bluetooth, and will saves the last 20 or so workouts before uploading for something like 139

A lot of people love this stuff hey.
The ones that count your steps and your sleep.

I’m old school tho.
Haven’t bought into it.

Rather just leave it all in the gym and know i did all I could.

Dont hate tho cos whatever keeps ya motivated.

and thats the main thing - whatever motivates.

My fascination with numbers has never wained since school - so to see the numbers changing, shifting, improving is part of my motivation, admittedly. Having some form of measured metric given me fact based evidence of improvement.

So the myzone belt is like a far more basic version of the the heart rate monitor that the NRL lads use. It straps round your midsection and tracks heartrate far more accurately than your watch, and also tracks “effort” for lack of a better word.

When I first started using it It calibrated to work out my maximum heart beat, and worked out effort levels based off that reading. 20200121_105700.jpg

Youll note the above graph is broken into colours.

Red denotes periods where you are utilizing between 90 and 100 percent of your maximum heartrate,
Yellow is 80 to 90,
Green is 70 to 80
Blue is 60 to 70
Dark Grey is 50 to 60
Light Grey is below 50

So not only does this track heart rate and Calorie Burn - it gives you a realtime indicator to see how hard you are working. as you can see recovery plays a big key in keeping on going, and that middle 20 minutes would have been a high intensity session, such as a burpee relay or something.

The MEP number is a myzone score you can use to get an idea of how well you fared effort wise vs friends, connections, or even yourself.

Through my work I’ve been fortunate enough to get to know a well known and loved Tigers Alumni - and we are Myzone buddies too. 😉

As you can also see, he’s still got it, and the percentage is how much effort you put into the overall session - because I have rest and recovery periods my overall percentage drops, but man - he’s still an absolute weapon.

Can I just say - he’s an overall just awesome guy as well.

I use my Samsung active, and I alos use a MyZone Belt as I’m a member of Snap fitness and they use it on their network -

However the Myzone this morning was less than accurate, as I kept moving more than Bluetooth range from my phone during the circuit.

However thats usually far more accurate than the samsung watch
Ill thrown one of those up in a sec as an example.
