So, it seems I'm crap at training for any period longer than 3 months before having a few months off.

Had my first planned weights session since August 2015 yesterday. I've decided that I'm going to follow the Russian Squat Routine for 6 weeks to I can hit the ground running in a structured way.

My old PB's:

Deadlift - 270kg
Olympic style squat, beltless - 210kg
Strict OHP - 105kg
Push Press - 130kg
Bench Press - 155kg
Log Press - 130kg

I'd like to think that I'll be back on these figures by the end of the 6 weeks. I'm generally quite quick to pick up the movements. I would like to compete in a couple of strongman events this year and possibly a couple of natural powerlifting competitions.

My shoulder strength is always the thing to go to s**t when I have some time off, so that will be a grind. I need to be very careful not to push too hard on them as I have had tendonitis issues in the past.

Training 01/02/2016

Locker 27, Weybridge

Foam rolling, stretching, working out where the stuff in my gym has all moved to since I was last there!

Squat - No belt, no wraps, olympic shoes:
Bar x 10 x 2
70kg x 10 x 2
120kg x 5 x 2
165kg x 2
165kg x 2
165kg x 2
165kg x 2
165kg x 2
165kg x 2

Felt quite easy, so relatively happy. My "weights fitness" isn't there, so legs were a little shaky at the end of it.

OHP, Strict:
Bar x 10 x 2
50kg x 5 x 2
75 x 3
75 x 3 ( 1 Push Press)
75 x 3 ( 3 Push Press)
75 x 3 ( 3 Push Press)
75 x 3 ( 3 Push Press)
75 x 3 ( 3 Push Press)

Not good enough, but to be expected.

Deadlift, no belt, no shoes:
70kg x 10 explosive
120kg x 5 explosive
160kg x 3 explosive
Straps on:
195kg x 3
195kg x 3
195kg x 3
195kg x 3
195kg x 3
195kg x 3

Easy enough, legs were a bit shaky but that didn't affect it too much.

Session was 50 minutes all in all. Quite sore today.
