The one in the guns and roses teeshirt. Member 171, 2462 posts SQ 272.5, BP 140, DL 245657.5 kgs @ 80.2kgs Eq | You lifting yourself off on the bench with anything more than the bar definately shocked me! But the weeks training impressed me. | ||

Member 2213, 300 posts SQ 235, BP 130, DL 215580.0 kgs @ 75kgs Eq | Post Edited: 25.05.2011 @ 16:27 PM by John_C Hehe Bad situation with my squat briefs; they were far too loose, slipping on in ten seconds, so I sugared them. I can no longer get them past my arse, and its not even close, so they're bust. I can get a new pair one size up or one size down but neither of these are a good fit. The size I wear is a custom size that I can't get a new pair of in time for the comp. Also, I don't fancy spending £100+.

Deadlift70kg x 5 110kg x 1 130kg x 1 x 7 Good for and speed, happy with these. I don't have time to get back into equipped squatting before the comp and I can travel to use a monolift but its going to cost £10+ a time. I'm really enjoying raw lifting too. Also need a new deadlift suit at £100+. As well as this, shirted benching causes problems still with the tendons around my elbows, and I can't use it in my gym -- again I'll have to travel a £10+ a time. I think I'm best sticking to raw lifting for a while. That was my plan at the start of the year anyway as I knew it would be really tough this year in the final part of my degree to travel to train and so on. | ||

Cramp, maybe, but I'm not sure what cramp feels like. I spent half an hour trying to get it to wake up. 45 degree back extensionsBW x 12 x 2 These are great for getting blood through! Felt good after these, but we had to move on. Snatch pull40kg x 5 x 2 50kg x 5 70kg x 5 x 2 Light still, but felt good. Oly squat50kg x 5 x 2 60kg x 5 70kg x 5 80kg x 5 90kg x 5 100kg x 5 110kg x 5 x 3 50 reps total. Everything hurt after this. Instead of my usual cycle home I was walking and it took a lot longer than normal, but by the end of it, everything felt way better. | ||
