    I appreciate the nick name. Have you read any of the emperor series by Con Iguldon (sp?). Its all about Julius Caesar - I think the 4th book details his fights with the German tribes and describes them as quite banshee.

    Any how, to the OP, I say again, don't neglect the PKC. Running is great, but can often lead to imbalances of quad to ham/glute strength. Good mornings are a great exercise, as are reverse hypers is you dont have access to a GHR.

    Nope, haven't read that one so far, but I have read quite some books on this topic. One of 'em ist the Germania of the aforementioned Tacitus. The Edda written by Snorri Sturluson, the Heimskringla (decent stories of many danish, norse and icelandic kings), the Sagas and various ancient mythology tales from Germany (like The Nibelungen Saga, The Tale from Widkund, Battle of the Teutoburger Woods and the whole story about Arminius, the chieftain of the German tribe of the Cherusci. Well, there were some historic books too about the Migration Period in the Dark Ages (on behalf of the Normanni, Goths, Vandals, Franks and Anglo-Saxons (and a bunch more).

    Are familiar with the Sagas? Ragnar Lodbrok, Harald, the Hard, Sweyn, the Forked-Beard or King Olaf Tryggvisson? Man, those a great tales.
    I am always looking for a good read

    Today no training. Pain in the right wrist, because I have slept quite twisty. Ah well, tomorrow will be another day

    I really don't see that guy going anywhere very fast. Haha

    You should try car pushes for some good HIIT training if you dont have access to a prowler. Throw it in neutral (turn it off so you dont breath exhuast fumes), push it up a very slight incline for 20-30m. Hop in, roll back down, a few A skips to freshen up, repeat.

    Guess what? I'd love to do that stuff, but nevertheless, I don't have the equipment right now. I am also curious to try out kettlebell training someday. Hell, all those oldschool training regimen are kick ass programs if you ask me. Lifting tires, chopping wood and lifting heavy weights on everyday occasions seems a great thing to me, too.

    Bah, today was a good day to die...nearly missed an exam on microeconomics II just because I've looked up the wrong time. 25 minutes out of a 60 minutes exam. Nevermind, finished in time, but the result was somewhat unstructured. With A LOT of luck, I might pass. It would have been an A grade without this freaking haste and chaos. Oh well, at least I attended the exam, lol...

    made my fu***** day. Rage time in the gym.

    main
    Dumbell Squat
    T-Bar Row + Upper Back Machine
    Dips

    DAT Power. Written exams in Microeconomics I. Hi(i)t the gym afterwards for the treadmill: hill runs, max incline at 9,5 % with +6 kg weighted vest. Was pretty tired thereafter, so I took a nap (well, that was refreshing!). Hit the gym again in the evening. Training was tough but I powered through.

    main
    Leg Press
    Bench Press
    Barbell Row

    complement
    Prone Incline Dumbell Bat Wings (helluva monster name for the exercise)
    Abdominal Crunch

    Time to enjoy a mammut-meal now and chill down. Three exams written, two more to go in march. Oh, and a motivational of the day. True story, that.

    So today I hit the gym around 4 p.m. - nothing special to be said:

    main
    Deadlift
    Incline Dumbell Bench Press
    Pendlay Row

    compent
    Landmine Grappler

    Destroyed some aerobi stepper made of plastic, because the barbell fell out of my hand by accident @ the Deadlifts. Oh well...anyway, those Landmine Grapplers were pretty hard. 30 kg - like putting the shot. Great exercixe. Had to work afterwards in the gym, 'cause its really overcrowded on Tuesdays evening. Worked until 8 p.m. and now waiting for my pizza. No cooking for today. Time to lay down
