South Pole Training

A nice dollop of Monday morning misery…

That was filmed a week or so ago. This morning I was in the gym for a short, but very painful session:

  • 6 minute run test on the treadmill- max effort.
  • Rest for 10 minutes then the following at max effort without a rest-
  • Front Squat @ 40kg x50 reps
  • Deadlift @ 60kg x50 reps
  • Dumbbell Military Press @ 10kg x50 reps
  • Inverted Row @Bodyweight x50 reps
  • Row 1km
  • Front Squat @ 40kg x50 reps
  • Deadlift @ 60kg x50 reps
  • Dumbbell Military Press @ 10kg x50 reps
  • Inverted Row @Bodyweight x50 reps
  • Row 1km

Now it’s time for tea and toast!

And, in other news, why not come along to this event if you are in London next week and are planning a big adventure (or if you have been on one and can help other people):

  1. Nice little film Mr H. Got to say the cycle ride up Box Hill looked the easiest bit of the day (apart from the last bit of course).

  2. Setting the bar for expedition web shorts and you haven’t even started the expedition! Fantastic to offer an insight into all the work that goes in before you hit the ice. Look forward to the next instalment and good luck with all the other bits and bobs. Fingers crossed and all that!
