how are you getting on with it ? and what's your opinion of decline bench as a max effort ? I ask as it allowed me to handle more weight than a flat bench and I enjoyed it. | |||

comp plans abolished due to my laziness and stupidity. Reckon i've left it too late now with fees etc so itll be onto another training cycle as of tomorrow. Quite fancy the westside conjugate style of training so I'm going to give it a whirl and see what i make of it. Videos Will be made as I'll be hoping to get some feedback. Anyway onwards and upwards ! | |||

Aye man its handy having a pitch round the corner. I've been slacking off on it recently as well so its an aim to get some more fitness work in and lose some bodyweight. Wednesday was Benching bench 40 x 5 60 x 5 80 x 5 100 x 3 110 x 3 115 x 1 misloaded 110 x 5 115 x 2 All felt very heavy and bad. Need to sort form out. Dumbell shoulder press 15 x 12 30 x 8 30 x 8 30 x 6 Bodyweight dips 8, 8, 8, 5 Tate Press 15 x 8, 8, 6 Abs etc to finish. Felt terrible so not too worried about the bad session. Today was Squat Squat 60 x 8 100 x 5 120 x 3 120 x 5 140 x 5 180 x 3 190 x 2 190 x 2 195 x 2 200 x 1 The double was probably there but im a snivveling wimp and moaning that i have a cold. On another note my brother(and training partner) had a spectacular miss at a 160. I wish it was on video. Lost the bar on his back and threw a hissy fit. Great to watch !! Frontis 60 x 8 100 x 8 120 x 5 , 5, 5 Good mornings from pins 100 x 5 120 x 5, 5, 5 Finished with 8 doubles at sumo speed pulls. used 100k. All moved very fast and happy with session. | |||

Sumo deadlift felt great today. I forgot the camera so no s**t form footage but i think with some work it could be a go-er. Worked up to a 200kg single and it was a grinder but i think its due to lack of experience and practice. Ill definitely keep it in mind for after the january comp. Anyway the session Sumo Dead 60 x 8 80 x 5 100 x 5 120 x 3 140 x 3 160 x 3 180 x 3 200 x 1 Conventional deads 210 x 1 230 x 1 Threw these in as I want to keep some heavy singles. Stiff Leg Deadlift or Romanian im not sure 120 x 5 120 x 5 140 x 5 140 x 5 140 x 5 dumbell rows 45kg x 8, x5, x5, x5 Finished with some ab work and stretching. Fat as f**k asfter xmas pig out but the power is there. Bench session in the Am so hopefully a video or 2. | |||

cheers Andy. Another stupid question, is that open to any members or does it require qualifying ? cheers |
