Thats wicked news Carl, Tamworth is a good venue. Im chuffed with that. I will stay somewhere different next time though as we were next to a pub and the music kept us up and many others I expect.

nice vid phil! go for the 157.5!! you know you want to!

We will see mate. It all depends on tactics on the day. Terry Jex is likely to be competing against me and hes a solid lifter so I will have to play it by ear. I could take a gamble and do as you say, or I could play it safe and do what I know Im capable of.

Great stuff mate, I think you'll love it. As Little A likes to say, "coaches think, lifters lift". It's great, just turn up, do as you're told, and get better Grin.

I reckon I will mate. When it comes to writing my own programs I have so many ideas swimming around in my head that it feels like its going to explode! ie "should I do front squats or leg press" or "should I do 6s or 8s" etc........ With someone else doing the thinking for me I dont have to worry about anything else but my training. And like Robyn said to me, "if it doesnt work it doesnt work", at least I would have given it a go. If it does go well then I will implement the same strategy for the worlds if I qulify.

I am Carls spokeman. We train at the Andover leisure centre, although Carl goes to uni in Bristol so he has to use the uni gym when there. We both live in Andover, although Carl is at uni so spends more time there.

I forgot to add that I was talking to Robyn Brown during training today. I expect there may be a few here who have heard of him as he used to compete in BAWLA then the BPC. He lifted as a master for several years winning 10 world titles in the 82.5/90kg classes. Basically, he is going to write me and Carl a programme leading up to the British Champs. This will be good as Ive always been self coached and I would love to have someone elses input, especially someone with his experience.

Thanks for all the replies guys, sorry Im a bit behind as I had to work for 2 days and nights. Iain, with regards to my warm ups, Im not concerned with the amount of sets Im doing, I just think I do a lot of reps compared to others. I suppose Im always searching for a better way of doing things in training. How comes you only work in 3s in your warm ups? It obviously works for you, I take it its to conserve energy for the top sets. Oh and lol at Titch!

Todays training;

Bench press
20x20 last rep paused
60x10 "
100x6 "
130x3 "
140x1 paused
150x1 "
155x1 "
145x1 "

Close reverse grip bench press

Underarm chins
Body weightx8

Bent over barbell rows

A good session today. The 155kg bench was hard, I think atm on the comp 155 will be my 3rd attempt, although I could go 152.5, then 157.5 and go for a small pb. The chins felt so good, they were going up very quick and I think I could have used more weight. Next week I will do a single set with 40kg and see what I can get. Deadlifts on monday and a crack at 7 plates a side Wink

Thanks Carl for putting that video up you skinny little runt.

Ok thanks for that mate, I appreciate you taking the time to answer Happy My reasoning behind me doing that single was to feel a weight close to what I was going to do for the working set, but may be you are right, perhaps it is a bit close to bother with. Cheers Rob.

It would be if I had done it lol!

Tonights training;

180x3 belt from this set onwards
210x2 failed a 3rd. I wasnt too pissed off actually. The guy I had spotting said they were way below parallel. I really thought I would get a 3rd, but when I got down in the hole then come up a bit it just stalled and I had to dump it in the rack.

Front squats
132.5x5 failed a 6th

Standing calf raises

Not a bad session, but I really am not fond of missing reps. I think now I will taper down the volume of my workouts a bit, maybe just do 1 set on the assistance work, we will see. Although I still have to chin 3x6 on 33.5 to see an improvement and I have my heart set on doing 100x3x6 on military press.

A question for anyone who feels like replying: do I do too many reps on warm ups? I read quite a few journals on here and it seems that a lot of lifters do fewer reps than me for warm ups, maybe Im doing it wrong?
