Back squat
warm up - good mornings, lunges, overhead squats
60x8
100x7
130x5
150x2
150x3+3+3+3+3 2:00min rest - not too hard

Bench
Bar x10+10
60x8
75x6
87.5x2+2+2+2+2+2 1:30-min rest - ok. Actually a little slower than the other day which I *think* may be because this grip is new so the newly activated muscles aren't recovered fully from last week. That could also be complete tosh!

Bent over row
60x8+8
80x6+6+6 2-min rest

Muscle Snatch
40x4
50x5+5+5 - pretty hard

Done

Phone decided to pack in 5-mins into the session so couldn't time my rest periods. Blooming annoying since when I got home I plugged it in and it came straight on at 40% charge Angry

Back squat
warm up - paused squats x10, overhead squats x 10, good mornings x10
60x10
100x8
130x6
150x1
160x2+2+2+2+2 I think I may have missed a set as I should have done 5 but I'll not let it bother me - these were easy

Bench
Bar x10+10
60x8
75x6
87.5x4+4+4+4+4 - these were good. Probably better than mondays as they were a little faster even with the higher volume

Deadlift
60x5
100x5
145x3+3+3+3+3 - turned feet out a little more, helped activate the glutes a little and made the start of the lift a bit easier.

Done - probably would have finished in 20-mins less time but there was a guy there who didn't half like to talk! Nice enough but I got the impression he was a bit of a wrong un and would've chinned me if I'd have ignored me!!! Grin Grin Grin

I'll try and do some planks this evening at home.

Phone fell out of my pocket in the car so couldn’t time my rest apart from on deadlifts as someone lent me a timer.

Deadlifts felt easy with the belt on. Looking forward to when the weight starts getting heavier!!

Back squat
warm up - not much!
bar x10
60x10
100x6
130x4
150x1 (belt on)
160x4+4+4+4+4 1:30min rest - not too hard - decided I need to get used to a belt. Feels horrible in the bottom of the squat with it but probably stops me going too deep, which is probably a good thing!

Bench
Bar x10
60x6
75x4
87.5x2+2+2+2+2+2 1:30-min rest - ok.

Bent over row
65x8
85x8+8+8 2-min rest - meant to do 82.5. This was bloody hard

Out of time so no assistance at all.

Cheers fella. I think the deadlifts have come on more than anything but that might just be due to wearing a belt! I'm certainly able to cope with shorter rest period with slightly heavier weights than I could in Jan so defo moving in the right direction.

60x6
100x5
130x4
150x3
160x2+2+2+2+2 1:30min rest - fairly easy

Bench
Bar x10+10
60x7
75x5
87.5x5+5+5+5+5 2:00-min rest - getting harder but there's only 1 more week of extra volume before I start increasing the weight so it should be harder!

Deadlift
60x5
100x5
130x1
142.5x3+3+3+3+3 -didn't time rest - better bracing of midsection before starting so even the first rep is getting a bit quicker.


Alt dumbbell curls
12x10
16x8
20x6

Tricep pressdown
18.75x10
26.25x10
33.75x8
38.75x6

Done - must start getting some planks back into it.....

155x1
170x5+5+5+5+5 2:15-min rest - this was bloody hard! Thought I was going to need to use straps as even my hook grip was starting to fail. They wern't actually too hard on my legs/back, grip was the biggest problem

planks
1:15min on
1:00min rest

x3

Decent session - lower rest on squats and bench with no noticeable effects. Powered through on deadlift even though grip nearly failed. Pleased overall.

Well, here I am in Preston hospital dosed up to the eyeballs on morphine having just had my left leg amputated following a car crash last night.

Guess powerlifting is gonna be difficult now......

So sorry to hear that!

Wish you all the best with the recovery.

My freind lost his leg and it made him more active and sportier than he ever was. He even plays for England amputees now. Another lad also lost his leg and hes now a very competitive disabled strongman. With todays technology its not all doom and gloom. Best wishes.

April's Fool!!!! :P :P :P

Sorry, it was in real poor taste but I couldn't think of anything else which was training related.

Maybe next year I'll say I'm going back to bodybuilding or even worses, men's physique.....

Omg! Opened this thread earlier and read that you'd lost your leg. After driving to the hospital about an hour ago to bring you grapes and condolences I was puzzled that they had no record of anyone being admitted following a car crash and losing their leg. I kicked off big time and demanded they check again. Imagine my embarrassment when I checked the forum only to find out it was a hoax! I'm going to leave now. Wonder how much the car parking will cost me?!
