Friday December 5th.

First day back at the Farm post lockdown.
Weighed in at 115.4kg, so i've only put 2kg of the 6kg lost back on since the recovering from Covid.

I have lifted nothing in the past 4 weeks so this was a very easy session.

Squats to 120kg, lot's of them and all over deep.

Bench to 100kg, easier than i thought they would be!

Hex bar pulls to 165kg, knees complaining about the earlier squats now!

Strict OHP, lots at 35kg.

Back on Monday so will try to get a regular routing going, at least until the next lockdown.

Friday 18th December.

Down to just 4 lifters at the Farm tonight. So many lifters complained about not being able to train during lockdown yet once we re-open they stay home or go to the Poundland gym.

Deadlifts.
2 x 5 x 70
4 x 110
3 x 130
2 x 145
2 x 155
2 x 162.5
2 x 150
5 x 130
This was the first proper deadlift session in 16 weeks and it was not comfortable, the first attempt at the 162 double saw me walk away after not budging it, took 2 minutes and got my head straight then ground out the double. According to the formerly famous Finch formula that equates to a single at 176Kg.

Bench.
12 x 20
8 x 60
5 x 80
2 x 100
1 x 107.5
3 x 92.5
2 x 5 x 80 Close Grip.
The 107.5 is a post covid PB so pleased with that.

I'm not planning on going anywhere for a while Ed, besides the Farm opens on Monday for the first time this year so i've got something to look forward to.

I shall look forward to seeing your progress Ian, and hope it's a bit more rapid than mine

Monday 17th May 2021.

First time back at the Farm in 147 days!
Absolutely no lifting of any sort has happened during lockdown.
Weighed in at 119.2kg. Much too fat.

Tonight's target was a paltry bodyweight squat, BW x 0.75 bench and BW x 1.25 deadlift.

Squat.
2 x 5 x 20
2 x 4 x 50
2 x 3 x 70
2 x 2 x 90
2 x 1 x 110
2 x 1 x 120.
Depressingly painful but handsomely deep.

Bench.
2 x 10 x 20
8 x 40
4 x 60
2 x 80
1 x 90
3 x 5 x 65 Close Grip.
No problems but not much more there.

Deadlift.
5 x 50
4 x 70
3 x 90
2 x 110
Left it there, i'm reasonably certain that a 150 was in me but i suddenly felt like vomitting so decided to skip the potential clean up job.

Very sore today.

Welcome back Ian. Hurts a bit if you haven't lifted in a while doesn't it?
