    Chest is sore, plus legs a bit wobbly, woohoo!

    Bad thing is today, somehow, I hurt my inside thigh up near my groin. When I finished squats, I felt a slight pain in lunges. I left them, did leg lifts, went back to them, and the pain had eased up a bit.

    Should be able to provide video's of my terrible run up and action some time on the weekend (Sunday), and you can critique it.

    FFS, injuries suck. I got hit on the foot yesterday playing backyard cricket, and immeadiately, it didn't hurt. 30 seconds later, the pain set in, and 5 minutes later, it was a big lump, with a big black bruise on it.

    It hurt and I had trouble going to sleep, and today I'm staying home from school to rest it up. Laying on the lounge at the moment, with my foot elevated on pillows, plus I had some ice on it before, and it will be back soon.

    I've got training this week sometime after school, for my school team, which I'm captaining, I can't miss training! This SUCKS!

    Why? The most successful powerlifters in the world started around that age.

    lifting weights supposedly stunts your growth when you are still developing, although i do not believe. Im no expert but lifting weight hasnt stopped me from growing, atleast i dont think it has

    "Myth #2: Strength training will stunt the growth of children.

    It still amazes me that parents won’t hesitate to get their young children (6-7 years old) involved in sports such as football, gymnastics, basketball and soccer, yet they feel that participating in a strength-training program is damaging to their children’s bone health and will stunt their growth. Nothing can be further from the truth.

    The fact of the matter is that running, jumping and tackling can create loading on a child’s body which is up to ten times greater than most strength training exercises. In other words, the physical demands on a child’s body are far greater on the athletic field compared to the weightroom. Parents who don’t let their children participate in resistance training are actually increasing their children’s risk for injury on the athletic field.

    There have even been position stands by such organizations as the American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine and the American Academy of Pediatrics suggesting that children can benefit from participation in a properly designed and supervised resistance training program. Position stands recommend that prepubescent children shouldn't lift maximal weights; they should lift weights that can be lifted for at least six repetitions with proper form.

    Strength training in this manner can be the most potent exercise stimulus for bone growth and development. In fact, research has shown that young weightlifters have greater bone densities than individuals who don't lift. Thus, the positive benefits of resistance training for bone health, injury prevention and improved athletic performance are far greater than the risks."

    Sounds like your committed Jake...which is good. For doing weights, it's not harmful and will definitely not stunt your growth but remember to do it with perfect technique. If it means going lighter, go for it .

    Since Monday, I've decided I'm stopping the weight training for 2 weeks. With the ankle almost 100%, I've got training today for club, training on Tuesday for school (which I am captaining, so I need to go) then rep tryouts the following Sunday. If I injure myself, I will be devostated. I will be resuming after the rep try outs if all goes to plan.

    Had five days of rest this week before my 20/20 yesterday. Best idea.

    6th September

    Just thought I would update that I trained today, was really good. Was scared to bat against the older guys, but I was better off for it. I faced an under 19's Australian indoor player, he bowls some nice offies. I faced a quick, who bowled a nice ball at my head, and I got out of the way well, and the rest weren't too hard to face. A bit of swing, good line and lengths, nothing else that troubled me. I only got out once in the whole innings, to the spinner, coming down the track, trying to defend, and his turn and bounce got the shoulder of the bat, and it balooned up into the air. I absolutely creamed an off drive against a second grade bowler, and didn't play too many bad shots really. With the ball, I bowled some lad, who wasn't a bad bat, and got the edge (but it went too low for a keeper, I reckon) of another guy. My ankle was troubling me a little, but it got better through bowling, then it got bad at the end, resulting in my bowling a short outside off, short at the hips, then a full toss, above waist. I decided to stop bowling then, and just as I sat down, I was called over to fielding. That was good, just a drill with a tennis ball and racquet, hitting the ball at us, in games where we were punished if we miss it and stuff. Good times.

    Thanks. Even if you are being sarcastic.
