Heheh Grin

And Titch, the lamp is a lie Wink

Did some benching a few days ago working on the technical aspect of heavy lifting, slower & controlled to 170. There's video available of the 170, but it's a bit boring.

Today

Squats
Same depth as the 140*5 or deeper
60 * 5
100 * 5
110 * 5
120 * 5
130 * 5 - Feeling knackered
140 * 5 - Quite a sweat on
150 * 5 - Bleh, too tired to carry on

Still felt like more of a back workout, legs don't feel worked hard. I think next time I'll go 100, 120, 140, 160 rather than 10 kg steps.
Didn't find it any harder going slightly deeper, if anything a little easier.

Dumbbell Rows
55 * 8R + 8L
60 * 8R + 8L
60 * 8R + 8L

I can't really fit any more on the dumbbell without using 10kg plates which reduce the ROM, but I'm not sure I get more from 60 than from 45... it's harder to really concentrate on any part of the lift in the same way. Still, variety is the spice of life and all that.

Today was a little more upper body work as my legs/back are feeling tired after some walking.

Bench Press
60 * 6 - Paused
100 * 6 - Paused
100 * 6
140 * 1
145 * 6 - Embarassed I loaded one side but not the other, unsurprisingly it was a lot of work to keep it under proper control
150 * 5 - Felt good, but hard work after the last set, pain in my right wrist so I dropped the weight down a lot
100 * 10
100 * 10
100 * 10 - Not full ROM, working the lower part of the rep more
60 * 10
60 * 10

Plate Flyes
Working mid-deltoid and using plates rather than DBs as I couldn't be bothered loading up the DBs.
10kg * 10
10 * 10
5 * 10
5 * 10

Felt quite a good session overall, probably because I was in the mood for it. It's not following any plan, just what I feel like I can do at the time and trying to mix up heavy weights and form/control/higher reps work. I got a good pump at the end as well! Happy I've not repped 150 before either.

Missed out a couple of sessions including squats to 160*5 and paused technique squats using 100 & 140 kg to maximum compression.

Today:
Bench Press
60 * 10 - Felt like nothing
100 * 5 - Felt silly light
140 * 1
170 * 1 - Felt good
175 * 1 - Felt good
180 F - Miserable and painful Angry I don't know if I got the wrong line or if I was tired out by the two previous sets. It felt good on the way down but just stopped on the way back up.

Finished up with supersetted CGBP@60kg and EZ-Bar curls@38kg with no rest until I couldn't take any more :'( Felt quite ill after that.

Indeed, but one step at a time eh? Happy

Warmed up with 100*10 on bench - still quite stiff.

Clean & Standing Military Press
50 * 10
60 * 10
70 * 8
70 * 8 - Last two reps had leg drive involved
60 * 10
50 * 10

Lateral Flyes
10 * 10
10 * 10

Painful pump after these

I did some rowing as well with 50 kg and concentration curls for fun given the new mirror Grin *999, 1000, 1001...
