Our Brittany holiday cottage with private heated swimming pool and gym / fitness center near Baud

A couple of weeks ago at our Brittany holiday cottage with private heated swimming pool and gym / fitness center near Baud I hit the tender age of 50.

In the body building fraternity it is custom to perform squats on your birthday - with that in mind I attempted to turn the clock back and perform a weight on front squats that I last did around 30 years of age, a 140 kg front squat.

The week before I got 4 reps on 130 kg but on this attempt I actually crashed out on 120 kg due not to my legs but my shoulder injury - the hardest part of the exercise for me is actually holding on to the bar, either the bar is to high on my neck restricting my breathing or its lower down and has the tendency to roll off.


You can see from the  clip how low I perform the squats using a pause at the bottom on 100 kg.



The gym at our holiday cottages La Forge and La veille maison is available for all our guest to use.
