Haha - I still function Wink

Legs are doing surprisingly well today - I actually expected some fatigue as last night they were pretty tight.

voldomonkey said:Cheers Steel. Physically, it was by far the hardest set, and way harder than 30@102.5...

I was slightly annoyed that I didn't keep going and get 20, but thought it safer and more prudent to stop before my arms gave way. (Plus my legs were starting to burn from the lactic build up) Next week I'll aim for 16 at the same weight, as well as my 6x6 which I reckon I'll start at about 160 or so - give myself a few easyish weeks to get eased back in properly and all Wink

Last week I reckon I could have done an easy 200. No chance of that tonight - legs felt totally creamed after the raw set. Glad I did it though - that wasn't far off my top squat in 2007. Lol


I'm not surprised your legs were creamed after all those reps haha!

Sounds like a solid plan you have there, huge squat coming in the next comp no doubt about it!

Haha -here's hoping. As long as it stays 2.5k ahead of yours... Wink Hell, even 1k would do me Wink Think the squats in the new 83s will be a tightly fought competition this year...

Closer but I don't think close, you are definitely a better squatter dude.

Stop fishing for compliments LOL. You're catching up VERY quickly and I don't think you realise what your real potential top figure is as yet. You're certainly making me work harder at my squats again which is good Happy

I wasn't I was giving you one lol!

You're right though it pushes us both on to higher levels which is most definitely a good thing.

Wee session tonight that ended up with me being in the gym for about 4 and a half hours - giving commands and tips, training and spotting once I was done.

DEADLIFT (Sumo)

Warm ups then..

5@ 160 raw

2@180

1@207.5 - new sumo pb Happy It's creeping up towards my conventional pb now...

BENCH

3x6@ 100

1x6@ 112.5

1x1@ 122.5

First bench session in about 6 weeks where I've gone above 90k - had spotters tonight LOL

ABS

4x6 headstand ab folds. These are starting to get easier again - haven't done them enough in a long time.

Great looking session tonight dude. Wish I was there to see it. That sumo is fair going up. I'm pretty excited to see just where it'll take you.

Cheers bud. I'm hoping that the sumo will exceed my conventional, or at the very least that it forces both of them up a bit more - I want that 227.5k deadlift this year! My neck is a bit stiff from the ab work but only because I haven't done them much of late for more than a set or two. Gonna make them my main ab work for the next few weeks and see how I can progress them...

Looking forward to a MANIMAL style squat session on Tuesday Happy

The way that things have been going for you lately, I'm pretty sure that the 500lb dead will fall this year if the consistency and diet is there.

Thats some good sumo deadlifting. Sounds like youll be getting the 500lbs in the not too distant future if this prgress continues. 150kg x 15 is mental squatting!!

Thanks bud. The sumo is working pretty well now. Still not quite as strong as my conventional, but not far off. Deadlifting twice a week and going 200+ same as you (although it's closer to my max than yours) and not feeling fatigue from it either.

The squats - I WILL get 20 reps at 150 raw before my next comp (and maybe even 15 at 160 Wink ) I've done 10 at 160 before but I really want to start hitting my squats harder again - been taking it pretty easy the past wee while. Stopped using the wraps after those 2 sessions - didn't feel they gave me a huge benefit - 10k maybe.

Back to basics tonight and had myself a cheeky wee session where I did some exercises I haven't done in a while (again) as well as a few regulars.

SEATED DUMBELL SHOULDER PRESS

Warm ups...

2x8 with the 26k bells

1x6 with the 32k bells - be taking it heavier next time.

CROSS BENCH PULLOVER

6 with 20k bell, 6 with 22k bell, 6 with 24k bell, 2x6 with 30k bell - not done these in a couple of years so wanted to make sure I started light and got the stretch that the exercise is designed for.

DIPS

Nice easy 3x10 - start adding weight next week

NECK BRIDGES

3x20 - again, will start adding weight next week

CORE

Horizontal cross body holds - forgot how tough it is to keep the arm in line with the body and opposing leg.
Plank - a comfortable minute and a half.

Did some developmental stretching for the adductors then a very relaxing few lengths in the pool.

First session back in the PoA in weeks and it was s**tE! I had a target of 16 raw at 150, but a slippy platform f**ked with my chi.
I made 11 (had to keep resetting my feet and adjusting my balance during and after every rep) then did a second set of either 10 or 11. Was gonna take 172.5 for 5 belted but it turned into 2, again due to the floor and my right foot slipping. Squats therefore got cut short, which was annoying as it wasn't a strength issue.
Deads were just as bad - was going to double 190 and didn't feel I got a good grip on the floor, so it became one and a half. Tried again and after one threw in the towel. By this point my back was feeling things as well.
Did some benching (just to keep my hand in) and did some 6s with 110 but I dislike the red bench - distance from bench to top of racks is too far for my wee stubby arms.
If the floor isn't better in there next time I may not be back in for a while.

On the plus side, Wiege got a rather tasty squat pb which is a 7.5k jump and only 10k off his goal - well done again! Happy

Gutted dude. How come the floor was so slippy?
