friday 20/08/10

bench press

kg_reps
45x10
65x10
75x10
add elbow sleeves
80x10 PB
80x7
80x7
100x3 PB (+4th rep slightly assisted)
65x12

next did some rope+bar tricep pull downs, kick backs 22 1/2kg x8 each arm.
also a couple or sets of hammer curls 15kg x 20, 17.5kg x 16.

i was wondering if anybody has an opinion on if/how much you believe elbow sleeves help you bench and does it class as equipped lifting?
ive started using them as i always get "golfers elbow".

Deadlift day!

DEADLIFTS:

60x12
100x6
120x2
(add belt)
140x3
(start using straps)
150x2
150x2
150x3 PB

wide pull ups:
body weight - 6/6/5.

Standing dumbell shrugs.

32 1/2kgx12
40kgx6

did a little bit of forearm work to finish but nothing special.

Knackered at the end of this, quite pleased with the deadlifts but need to get some chalk soon to be less reliant on straps.

18/08/10

today was mainly for practising my squatting technique, every squat was done as low as i could go. tried different wideness of feet, a few narrow a few wide and some middle-ish but all below parallel.

bar 12
60x12
60x10
80x6
80x6
85x6
85x6
90x4

Calf raises machine- best set: 6x390lbs
finished with a set of leg curls + leg raises 3x10

squats feel better now that i keep my hands closer in and have my feet facing outwards slightly. still need some more practise for confidence with heavier weights.

As were into the new year I would just like to say thanks very much to everyone who has posted encouragment/banter/advice etc in my log since i started it in August 2010. Happy Happy
I was pretty clueless at the start and there's been a few hard times with training/minor injuries as well as work/life etc so its all helped keep me going!

Progress
from 08/2010 - 01/2012(today)

Bench press: 105kg - 125kg

Deadlift: 182.5kg - 240kg

Strict overhead press: 65kg 85kg and 72.5kgx5

Push press: 75kg - 85kgRoll-Eyes (Working on it, lol)

Squat: 135kg - 145kgx4 and 150kgx2


Im still training 100% natural and feel that ive still got a fair bit of gains to come.
Not gonna be too specific with goals cos they never work out exact, but this year but i would love a 260 deadlift, a 180 squat and get 100kg over my head this year as well as putting in better performances at comps than i did last year!

Happy Happy Happy Happy Happy Happy Happy Happy Happy Happy

PeteHodgson said:if I was working up to 140 for triples I would probably go

» warming up (Go to post)10-08-2010 @ 14:38 
i was wondering how many sets everyone does when warming up to the ”training weights".
For example, my workout later is 5 sets of 3 140kg deadlift.
for this i will prob do about 20*60kg, 8*100kg then onto 140kg.
Am i a far way out from what i should be doing?

Does anybody know if the northwich competition (u90kg northern final) is anywhere near the train station? or what the place is called? car is off the road atm Angry .

Wayne_Cowdrey said:You have a decent squat number for a guy of your bodyweight, but I'd suggest that you'd need to put at least 20/30 kilos on your dead lift.

Practising on the kit is very important too.


yea i was thinking of starting to compete next spring-ish so hopefully lifts will keep getting better till then.
at the moment i lift with no suit wraps or shoes (just a belt when squatting), any guidance on that subject would be great as i dont know much about that aspect at all?

Boar said:you should come to the u90kg dragons comp in december .... only a trip along the M56 .... also a trip up to the olympic gym for a training session


I think ill try and come up for a nose when my car is fixed! Does the gym have a webpage i could take a look at?
i could do with having a go on some strongman equipment and maybe watching a comp in the flesh to get more of an idea of how it works an so on.

Thanks for the reply's!
