Good fun though. The Venetian is SUCH a lovely room to play in. As almost always, Mr & Mrs Shulman were in attendance.

Any of you that have played at The Venetian will be familiar with Mrs Shulman, aka Allyn, wife of Barry, the Cardplayer.com owner. She was/is co-owner of Cardplayer, & is their Attorney. Decent player, won a WSOP Bracelet in the Seniors around 12 years ago for ~$600,000, & won a big Deepstack Extravaganza affair for over $300,000, so knows her way round the table. I happen to like her very much, a view not widely shared, but she does strike quite an imposing image with her posh shades, long blonde hair, menacing cleavage & opinionated views.

It did quite amuse me though the way she casually slung her $700 Versace scarf over her chair in such a way that everyone could see it. To be fair, I do the same with my Tesco scarf.

'Menacing clevage' I have to admit I lolled

Ha, Mr Spangles, all sorts are popping out of the woodwork.

Listen, when a 70 year old woman with a push-up bra & half an acre of cleavage gets in your face, believe me, it's scary. You never been in a Golf Club Locker Room on Gentleman Seniors Day? Not nice, not nice at all.

You see much of the Fen Flouncer these days? Go to the sane Gym, perhaps?

Sadly very few sightings of the flouncer..did bump into him a little while back at the G.. looked very buff and seems to have traded in his midlife crisis muscle car for a much more sedate soccer mum SUV

I think your current intensity would still comfortably see me off. I got some engine work done earlier in the year which did surprise me, but I just cant keep it up.

A standard circuit would be

DL 100kg- 8
Burpees- 8
C&P 60kg- 4

Ten rounds in around 20 mins. I was training with someone so rest periods were whilst the other works but he was an animal so my rest was low. Very very tough.

The hardest we did was

5x5 DL 140kg
5x5 C&P 80kg

We did that in less than 20 mins and I didnt miss a rep. No idea how I built up to that.


The thing with strength/cardio workouts is the weight doesnt have to be too heavy. As you know heavy bars will take it out of you big time. people who dont OL will never know how hard you will be breathing after consecutive heavish lifts .

One of the best basic types is cardio machine combined with strength.. so say

500m row with 10x 70KG deadlifts

5 rounds look to go sub 15 mins

My 20year old daughter made the mistake of asking me to go to the gym with her and do one of my basic workouts with her..HAHAHAHA we only did bodyweight prisoner stepups, lunges, push ups and situps.. she was whining and dying after two rounds.. Kids lol

Agreed there is very little reason for me to do that, but I dont think I am more proud of anything I have ever done in the gym that that. I have no idea how I did it, 80kg overhead for 2-3 kills me off. I dont know how I managed to peak at that.

Be surprised how much of it can be mental.. many times ive gone into a lift thinking, 'im never lifting that' etc... positive thinking  Smiley

Yeah intensity is way down.. probably operating at 60% when it comes to the crazy stuff.. I’m hoping once they fix me I can ramp it up a bit don’t think I’ll get back to the lunacy of  a couple years ago.. may be a good thing in the long run lol

Quick update my end:

Squat- 140 3x3
DL- 200x3
Bench-  DB 46 3x8
OAR- 50k 3x12
Pull up- 20kg 3x5
OHP- 3x6 65kg
C&P 5x5 80kg

BW 90-92kg

I am officially stronger than I am pre hemorrhage which really is insane considering I was paralysed for 5 days. I never thought I would get back to this. The DL nearly made me cry and if I am honest I think I had more. I think I will do them for 6 by the end of th year. Previous best was 200 for 1 at 80kg.

Started to do some clean and presses as I really want 100kg over my head and unsure if I can ever strict press that.

Strength wise it's bizarre how strong I have got, and the start of the year I was doing a lot of conditioning too which only helped.

Training 3-4 a week max now because of life and recovery but getting it done.

Some good numbers there.. im still hard at it.. slight setback, I was diagnosed with an AFIB heart, basically my heart is out of sync and beats too fast under load i.e excercise. Apparently its common in athletes and middle aged men who excercise a lot ( always knew I was an athelete).. for reference American Football player JJ Watt had it.. was diagnosed on a wednesday, treated on a thursday and he played on the sunday. Just waiting for the procedure, apparently they will stick something down my throat and send a tiny electrical shock to my heart to put it back into rhythum.. really looking forward to that..not Smiley. Doc said its not too serious and quite common, said if untreated it can increase the chances of heart attack or stroke but he said as I was quite fit there was little to no chance. if I had been a normal 54 year old it might have been more serious. Doc said heart was good and strong, so when you hear these body postive idiots tell you being 28 stone is fine ill point out the healthy life is the better option for when things like this crop up.

So on some tablets for now It has slowed me down but only on the basis I literally cant go all out anymore. Heart was getting up to 230 bpm.. my max heart rate should be 170..ooops. Incidently I only discovered this as I wear a decent hear rate monitor ( full strap across the chest job) when i workout. Started noticing the readings were jumping all over the place and I was struggling doing the mental things I usually do. Thought the monitor was faulty and old age was catching up with me. I ordered a new monitor with the same results. the better half has an apple watch and it has an ECG app on it. Ran that and it said i was in AFIB..ran it loads of times, same result. then got a decent ECG machine..same result. So finally went to the Doctors who confirmed it with a proper full on ECG. I suppose what I take from this is that i never wore a monitor I would probably never have know and would have assumed age was the reason i was struggling.

So still been training hard, still good and strong and by non crazy human beings standards im still very fit ( still get odd looks from fellow gym goers as i go through crossfit workouts in a non crossfit gym Loool.

Recent numbers:

Bench 130KG
Squat 170KG
Deadlift 175KG
OHP 85 KG
squat clean 100KG

I have no time for either of these players, but if she was bright and sophisticated enough to cheat in a high-stakes, televised game in the company of top class, savvy players, wouldn't she be bright and sophisticated enough to pick a better hand/spot? 

Think shes the fall girl..not that bright..superficial and look like shes banging the ring leader who is a basically a peniless con man.
This is her husband..lol.. lawyer//looks as dodgy as fuck

Top Gun: Maverick

Recently I have had a strange feeling deep inside, a hankering for something. Then I realised, it was a need.. a need for speed Smiley

I must admit to being a great fan of the original Top Gun and considering it was released way back in 1986 it still holds up pretty well today. I remember going to see it on several occasions, once driving over fifty miles to the newly opened multiplex at Milton Keynes (the only one in the country at the time I believe) as it came towards the end of its cinematic run.

So, after an eternity of broken promises Top Gun Maverick finally arrives.

Anticipation is high as the ominous, familiar tones of the theme tune run through the surround sound and we are treated to an almost identical opening sequence from the original with fighter jets taking off and landing whilst ground crews jig around and high five each other. It must be great to serve in the US Navy, they seem to have so much fun.

We find our protagonist as a newly sacked test pilot, for once again demonstrating the sort of reckless abandonment of rules and regulations that would have seen him court martialled a dozen times in the real world. However, this is Tom Cruise, and this is story time. Maverick is brought back to Top Gun to teach a bunch of the finest pilots the Navy has to offer for a an almost impossible mission. Obviously, the mere mortal pilots struggle and in the end its maverick who will have to lead the mission They are going to have fly faster and lower than anyone has before.. Wooo Hoooo!

So, what’s Maverick like?

The story is incredibly basic, and even cheesy in places. Spoonful’s of over sentimentality are poured over one-dimensional characters and for the first thirty minutes we are starting to have doubts about the hype.
Then the action kicks in and wow some of the sequences are beyond spectacular and even though some CGI is interjected, it’s almost impossible to tell.

What makes the action so exciting is for a good amount of time the actors are in fighter jets, pulling G's and turning and burning for real. They occupy the backseat of the plane, pretending to operate said vehicle, whilst someone who knows what they are doing does the good stuff at the front. We see our heroes faces vibrate and fill with blossoms of blood as they experience for real what it’s like to be in a jet with your hair on fire.

One can’t but fail to feel exhilaration as we go first person in a supersonic fighter jet twisting and turning at low level through narrow canyons and over high-topped trees. The action sequences are truly breath-taking, add to that some great aerial fight sequences as air to air missiles and enemy jets try to blow our guys out of the sky and we have a film that finally makes you realise the seven hundred trailers were worth it.

Top Gun Maverick is not Shakespeare... it’s a basic story and premise, but the execution of its action is of the highest quality, and I’m sure thats what makes my partner want to see it again and absolutely nothing to do with Tom Cruise in dress uniform

For suspension of disbelief action junkies, it doesn’t get much better than this

So, another excellent Fajita Friday topped off by some Top Gunning

81/10 Fajitas
