    I was doing a compound barbell exercise this morning, that I think I invented. What do you call it when:

    - You do a hang clean
    - Which turns into a push press
    - Which you then release behind your neck
    - And press it back above your head
    - And then release back to the original hang clean starting position

    Is there a name for it?

    It's basically a complex, there are a million variations.

    Usually do them at end of a workout or on a circuit day. Fav complex at the moment is power clean, front squat,press,back squat,good morning. Do 5 reps each exercise and 3 sets. Each week add 1 rep, once you get upto 8 reps and no dramas then increase the weight.

    Plenty of combinations you can make, is good way of thinking up new workouts.

    @craigy

    I will look for some examples of complex routines, can do them with d/bells as well.

    http://www.istvanjavorek.com/page2.html

    That link didn't really work, go to the philosophy tab, shows some complex routines

    In that link are some examples,used to do some of these when I was younger. First complexes I started doing. They are great, aim more for muscular endurance. Do great strange looks doing these at the gym. Mainly because no one really bothers with circuits and that on the higher rep sets I'm out of breath between sets. After 3rd set I'm usually collapsed in the corner :)

    Plenty of different variations out there or just make one suited to your own needs.

    I did a 10k row in 37:45 yesterday, which apparently puts me in the top 10% according to the Concept 2 online rankings thing

    Yeah, but you have to keep in mind how many fatties you see on the things. ;)

    Nice job!

    I am better than the best 80-90 year old, but not as good as the best 70-80 year old

    The concept 2 online rankings are definitely not for the fatties. It's dedicated folk only.

    /doesn't rank anything like as highly as smoothpete

    Really? I've seen loads of fatties on them at my local gym. Or are you suggesting that they wouldn't sign up to the online stuff out of shame?

    Yep. I think only the dedicated sign up for the online logbook. I am rather lower down the list than I'd like. I currently have a 2:14/500m average just now for my ranked 5k row. Admittedly I have not rowed much lately due to illness/focus on running for an imminent race and am only 300 places from the bottom of 1400-odd folk in the 30-39 age range for my weight (>75kg).

    I know I don't row as often, or as well as I used to, but I am still reasonably fit.

    It pains me greatly.

    I don't think I've ever really tried rowing. I suspect my arms wouldn't be up to the task of late.

    How does the whole online thing work? Does it store your data somehow? My old gym had Concept 2s but I never noticed a way of getting a log from it.

    No it's not automatic, but I think you can get a doohicky that you plug in the top of the machine which produces a verifiable code for like proper record breaking times. Otherwise you just have to enter your numbers onto the website (on your profile)

    Yep, just log in and enter the data for your weight and that's it. Lwt <75kg or hwt >75 kg


    I think if you're really good it can display a verification code. I never need to worry about that! :(

    A pretty good article on the age old weights vs cardio for fat loss debate.

    I've got a great new exercise called The Daughterjump™. With my (2½ yr) daughter on my shoulders I crouch to the deadlift position, hold for a few seconds then leap/jump into the air (hopefully still holding onto aforementioned offspring) then straight back down to the crouch position.

    Repeat x 10

    PS: She absolutely loves it.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    The good thing about that is you have a self-adapting weight. Just carry on doing that exercise for the next 15 to 20 years and you should have some pretty good results.

    Heh, ceilings are pretty close actually, could turn into an outside activity soon! She also loves lying on my back while I do press-ups. Quite a good exercise actually as I have to counter her rolling off so works the core quite well.

    Kids eh? Who'da thunk it!

    I could do that, just a bit awkward more than anything. I used to be able to military press my ex for a few reps.

    Keep seeing this thread being bumped, so I would like to ask some advice on weight loss.

    For the last eight weeks I've been on a diet and gym. It is hardly what I would call strict, but I have managed to shed nearly a stone because of it and actually wanting to do more

    However I seem to be hovering over a certain weight and the belly doesn't seem to be going down much. Is there anymore I can do?

    Exercise at the gym is mainly cardio with resistance machines at the end for the legs and arms. I don't seem to be doing much in the way of ab/stomach work though. Are there exercises I can do to target that area?
