Thanks Pete.

Incidentally I discussed the red light with red light tonight, he did'nt deny it was him but claimed he could not remember why he gave it!

As the lift was passed there can't have been anything wrong with it. I suspect that was code for "I hit the wrong button but won't admit it"

Wednesday 5th Feb.

Busy again at the Farm, I counted 14 lifters and then as we were joined by a further 9 of the disabled lifters who now come down and use the Paralympic kit. It's good to see it being used. Weighed in at 111.65Kg, worked all sets with Horny! Grin Grin Grin

Front Squat.
5 x 20
3 x 60
2 x 80
1 x 100
1 x 120
1 x 132.5
1 x 140
1 x 150 Failed, leant forward and could not hold onto the bar.
1 x 145 Good, sat back and kept the bar on body.
Monday's efforts were my first front squats since last Feb, so i expected to be a little rusty. Would like to push this up close to my 160 PB before the end of the month. Horny has some vids of these, maybe he'll post them on here.

Bench.
20 x 20
10 x 60
6 x 80
4 x 4 x 100
2 x 6 x 90 Close Grip.
Benching is becoming more comfortable.

Deadlift. 5's to 75% target (235).
5 x 70
5 x 110
5 x 140
5 x 160
5 x 175
5 x 170
5 x 165
No problems.

No gym on Friday as i'll be late back from visiting customers in Wiltshire! Back onto normal sesions next Monday.

Wednesday 12th.

Weighed in at 112.4Kg, bulking up Eek Eek Eek

Front Squats.
5 x 20
3 x 60
2 x 90
1 x 110
1 x 130
1 x 147.5 Failed badly, leant forward and dropped the bar.
I'm getting worse at these, I generally only do these in Feb, I managed 160 in Feb 2012 and 155 in Feb 2013 so I guess a 150 should be possible before the month is out!

Deadlifts. Trebles to 82.5% target.

5 x 110
5 x 140
3 x 165
3 x 180
3 x 195
3 x 190
3 x 185
5 x 170
Other than painful callouses no problems.

Finished with some Strict Press's, sets of 5 up to 60Kg.

The observant amongst you will have noticed a lack of benching tonight, i'm reigning it in to just two sessions a week for the immediate future.

What about April 26th?

The Farm Powerlifting & Weightlifting Club now has a Facebook page.
I'm a Facebook Virgin so you'll need to bear with it whilst I figure out how to drive.

Monday 17th Feb.

A very pleasant evening at the Farm, the students have all gone home to mummy so it was just proper lifters in attendance. Weighed in at 111.65Kg.

Deadlifts. Doubles to 87.5% target max.
2 x 5 x 70
5 x 110
5 x 140
2 x 160
2 x 180
2 x 200
2 x 207.5
2 x 200
2 x 190
5 x 172.5
Hard work but everything came up!

Bench.
10 x 60
5 x 80
5 x 100
2 x 107.5
2 x 3 x 107.5 This should have been 3x3.
2 x 4 x 100 Should have been 2x5.
2 x 5 x 90 Close grip. Should have been 2x6.
I don't think that I've failed so many final presses for a very long time!

Happy with Deadlifts, not so with Benching.
