Training at Monster Gym, Cheshunt
Warm up, treadmill & dumbbells.

Bench
Warm up
Mixed between pinky on the rings and first finger
Few sets on 90 for 5s
Few sets on 100, 105 for 4s - didn't feel strong. Gonna work on my wide grip, reckon its got good potential.

Incline bench
8x60kg
5x80kg
1x90kg
1x100kg
1x105kg - mate thought I was gonna fail but I had it, failed the second clean attempt.


Log - each first rep cleaned then push press.
2x5x48kg
2x4x67.5kg
2x72.5kg
1x77.5kg
1x80kg
1x85kg, failed first attempt.



Loved the log, my first go on one. Didnt realise they had one there and left my belt at home. Had a play around with some s**tty Velcro belt. No good!

Squats
Warm up
All beltless
2x2x100kg
4x2x120kg

Pull ups 5, 5, 4

Really fun workout, loved it at Monster. Felt really lightheaded at the end of the workout, was training for over 2 hours.

Monster gym is near me! (Well its a 40 min drive and I dont have a car but yeah)

105 incline press is good, you should have more than your current 120 flat bench in the tank

Cheers mate. Whereabouts do you live?

Bench has felt really heavy recently. Need to work at some easier weights.

Also working a wide grip at the moment as I feel I can rep well with it, just need to get used to the heavier weights, so I can feel more stable with it. Definitely feel I've got some decent potential with it

A small town called bishops stortford.
Get the technique dialled in and you should be good for more weight. I find a wide grip is good for me if I can keep my elbows in as much as possible

Yeah I know mate. A friend keeps trying to tempt me into a night out round there on a Monday. Apparently there's a club that does a crew night with all the flight staff. Meant to be a decent night. Have you been?

Oh you mean Fountain, with the 'crew lounge' or whatever they call it. Ive been a few times and it is so incredibly small and hot in there. Drinks are mega expensive (well compared to uni prices). And I did not spot any flight staff or uniforms or whatever. however, embarrassingly it is probably one of stortfords best/biggest nights out, apart from a friday in Bacchus. The Star pub on a saturday or friday is always heaving though if you want a slower paced evening.
At the end of the day a night out with mates can be a laugh wherever you end up though.

Sounds like I might have to check one of the nights out, just for a change of scenery lol.

You study at Nottingham don't you? Think I may pop up there for freshers with a few mates.

Yeah it's a small town but there are some good nights. Post-night out at shekos2 is compulsory though!
Yeah I'm at nottingham uni, all freshers events last year were wristband only, and they were given out in halls. So if you can get hold of some then you'll be good!
Nottingham is a great night out
