Monday 6th January.

Back at the Farm tonight, I've not really been training properly for some time however I've now got 4 full weeks in the UK so i'll be trying to get back on it.
No plans to compete this year though but I will be refereeing whenever possible.
Weighed in at 118.75kg, still much to fat!

Squat.
2 x 5 x 20
5 x 40
3 x 60
3 x 80
3 x 100
3 x 120
2 x 130
1 x 145
Easing back into it slowly, all over deep as usual, happy to say that there were no real problems.

Bench.
10 x 20
8 x 50
6 x 70
4 x 90
2 x 102.5
1 x 107.5
3 x 100
5 x 80
7 x 60
Overcoming the osteo-arthritus by benching close grip, happy to say it is relatively pain free but at the expense of some kilos on the bar.

Deadlifts.
2 x 5 x 60
3 x 90
2 x 120
1 x 140
These hurt and were disappointingly hard, that said they were my first deadlifts since October 16th, nearly 12 weeks!
