the not training very much is obviously helping your bench ! I need to come up to the farm and get some tips as my son is interested in doing a powerlifting comp.

ED happens to most men with age, there are tablets for that.

Hope you kept up the weight loss over corona lockdown, you're far too loved here for anything to happen.

Monday 10th August.

It's been a while.
After being stuck in a Peruvian hotel room for two weeks back in March i finally gets repatriated to the UK only to find the Farm closed and the UK in lockdown.

However, following various risk assessments the Farm was allowed to re-open today. So this was literally the my first time at the bar since early March!

Six lifters back on the first night! Red Light Pete, Pete the chair, Jermaine, Mark, and Stewart. Weighed in at 117.40kg, i can live with that.

Squats - all really deep.
2 x 5 x 20
5 x 40
5 x 60
4 x 80
3 x 90
2 x 100
1 x 110
I guess we've got to start somewhere.

Bench.
10 x 20
8 x 40
6 x 60
3 x 70
2 x 80
1 x 90
1 x 100
All good until the 90 but the 100 was a proper grind.

Happy to be back after 5 months absence, all the annoying aches and pains appear to have gone and i've even weaned myself off Ibrupofen!
