Haha - I still function Wink

Legs are doing surprisingly well today - I actually expected some fatigue as last night they were pretty tight.

That's some pretty tasty squatting there mate! Well done Happy

Cheers Steel. Physically, it was by far the hardest set, and way harder than 30@102.5...

I was slightly annoyed that I didn't keep going and get 20, but thought it safer and more prudent to stop before my arms gave way. (Plus my legs were starting to burn from the lactic build up) Next week I'll aim for 16 at the same weight, as well as my 6x6 which I reckon I'll start at about 160 or so - give myself a few easyish weeks to get eased back in properly and all Wink

Last week I reckon I could have done an easy 200. No chance of that tonight - legs felt totally creamed after the raw set. Glad I did it though - that wasn't far off my top squat in 2007. Lol

Definitely a 200 at the next comp! My legs are stiff after my wee short session tonight - looks like we were all on the old squats Happy

1st Session of 2011 - got cut short as gym closed earlier than expected, so will need to make up for the lack of deads on Thursday instead.


1x15@ 150 raw - was going for 20 but as I was hyperventilating I got the tingling in the forearms and stopped before my muscles went into spasm.

1x5@ 170

1x2@ 180

Not bad for session number 1 though. And, the black bar I used tonight was a proper Ivanko power bar, so at least I have the use of decent kit in the commercial gym now Happy

Ross_Harkins said:nice solo squat session mate I take it you eventually get used to heavier stuff after a 10 rep set? See you next week mate enjoy whatever you get up to.

Yeah, that and all the core work. I'm gonna get the rest of them at David Lloyd doing headstand ab work before too long I reckon. Already seen one or two of them practicing headstands in the stretching area - not seen anyone else doing them on a bench as yet though LOL.

You too bud! Good to see the journal going again. Happy training!

Yeah - not been using the computer that much lately. Thought I'd best make an effort for the end of the year and all. lol

Yeah same to you mate..whatever or whoever you get up to lol Wink Training starting to pick up after a dry patch, back squats a bit behind mainly because I'm determined to get stronger at high neck, onwards and upwards for 2011!

Glad to hear it Happy I'm starting to develop on deads at last thanks to trying sumo, and doing them twice a week. I just need to get back to benching properly now. My squats are there or there abouts

Hope you have a good time at New Year bud. Looks like your training is going pretty well.

All training done for the year - last night was my last session and I had to go light due to a very tight left hamstring, so no deadlifts over 190 - gutted Unhappy

The session I had on Tuesday this week was a bit better.


1x10@ 150 raw
2x1@190 - no spotters so didn't go any heavier


backoff sets @ 150

I found a bar similar to the black bar at the PoA and liked it, so used it for both sessions this week. After my necessitated lighter session last night I spent a good bit of time on the foam roller - there are 2 new ones that are very firm upstairs - my quads got a tough rolling as did my hamstrings - not tight at all today Happy

Hope all you guys have a great time over New Year!

Your 2nd lift was strange as Steel says. It was looking strong off the chest and then just seemed to stop, dip a little then you powered it up. Pity you didn't try it again during the 3rd round.

Still, good solid benching with the 170 mate. I'll come and bench with you guys if you can get me up to a 150 in the next 6 months. lol

Going from your work the past few weeks mate I'd say there's a 202.5 there right now.

Just keep the work rate going and you'll have a 210 there by the unequipped I reckon. Damned good progress of late!

I agree with Steel buddy - we all have good and bad days and given the rate of leakage during your warm ups, I could tell it was gonna be a tough session for you.

As for the banter - yes....that was a particularly funny way to end the day Happy
» Manimal's training log (Go to post)14-10-2010 @ 10:11 
Cheers guys. I definitiely think I'll stick with wider grip for bench now that I can work it without too much pain.
When I return on Saturday I'll be trying my sumo style deadlifts again. Gonna mess about with training days to see which works best for me - Tuesday and Saturday or Tuesday and Thursday.
So some irregular training patterns over the next few weeks. It'll be nice to do some light work again and concentrate on working my core again for a while.

Pb on squats tonight for reps and sets.
One week off a pb for bench hopefully.
Bring on Saturday!
