Phone fell out of my pocket in the car so couldnít time my rest apart from on deadlifts as someone lent me a timer.

Deadlifts felt easy with the belt on. Looking forward to when the weight starts getting heavier!!

Phone decided to pack in 5-mins into the session so couldn't time my rest periods. Blooming annoying since when I got home I plugged it in and it came straight on at 40% charge Angry

Back squat
warm up - paused squats x10, overhead squats x 10, good mornings x10
60x10
100x8
130x6
150x1
160x2+2+2+2+2 I think I may have missed a set as I should have done 5 but I'll not let it bother me - these were easy

Bench
Bar x10+10
60x8
75x6
87.5x4+4+4+4+4 - these were good. Probably better than mondays as they were a little faster even with the higher volume

Deadlift
60x5
100x5
145x3+3+3+3+3 - turned feet out a little more, helped activate the glutes a little and made the start of the lift a bit easier.

Done - probably would have finished in 20-mins less time but there was a guy there who didn't half like to talk! Nice enough but I got the impression he was a bit of a wrong un and would've chinned me if I'd have ignored me!!! Grin Grin Grin

I'll try and do some planks this evening at home.

I think Ronnie is in the extreme rather than the norm. Even other Mr Olympia's as they've aged have seemed to fare far better. Dorian still appears to be in reasonable health, Lee Haney, Sammir Bannout looks pretty good for his age.

I wonder if he *really* doesn't have any regrets? Ego/Machismo whatever, is very easy to keep up whilst in front of the camera but when it takes 5 painful minutes just to go for a piss when you're all alone it's probably a very different matter.

Back squat
warm up - good mornings, lunges, overhead squats
60x8
100x7
130x5
150x2
150x3+3+3+3+3 2:00min rest - not too hard

Bench
Bar x10+10
60x8
75x6
87.5x2+2+2+2+2+2 1:30-min rest - ok. Actually a little slower than the other day which I *think* may be because this grip is new so the newly activated muscles aren't recovered fully from last week. That could also be complete tosh!

Bent over row
60x8+8
80x6+6+6 2-min rest

Muscle Snatch
40x4
50x5+5+5 - pretty hard

Done

Pretty tender after yesterday.
Between changing nappyís getting thrown up on Iím managing to Train 2-3 1 hour sessions per week so push/pull/events.
Hows you getting on with your new addition to the family?


Yeah, we are all getting on well. I work from home so it makes things a bit easier! Iím managing to get 2 1.5hr sessions in so better than nothing.

Surprised you have time for training Wink

Back squat
Bar x10 + 10 overhead squats
70x10
100x6
120x4
135x3+3+3+3 1:30min rest - easy and pretty fast

Bench
Bar x8+8
60x6
72.5x3+3+3+3 1:30-min rest - ok. Much, much easier with the narrower grip. Looking forward to how this will pan out with more volume and when the weight starts ramping

Deadlift
60x6
100x6
140x3
160x1
170x3+3+3+3+3 -2-min rest - hard! Last 2 sets I struggled to break the floor with the first rep (reps 2 & 3 were easy though)

Alt dumbbell curls superset with tricep pushdown
14x10 + 26.25x10
18x8 + 31.25x10
18x8 + 31.25x10



Planks
1-min on front + 30-secs each side
3 rounds - really hard! It does feel like I've pulled a muscle in my abs but it doesn't hurt so I'm thinking I'm just being a wimp Roll-Eyes

Back squat
Bar x10 + overhead squats, front squats, bit of everything really
60x10
100x8
130x6
150x3
160x2+2+2+2+2 2:00min rest - ok

Bench
Bar x8+8
60x6
75x4
87.5x3+3+3+3+3 2:00-min rest - ok. Have finally had it confirmed that my grip is far narrower than it needs to be. I can move it out probably 2in on either side so it'll be far less like a close grip bench. I'm expecting immediate strength GAINZ! Grin

Deadlift
60x6
100x6
130x4
142.5x3+3+3+3+3 -2-min rest - 1st rep is still really slow from the floor. Need to work on body positioning a bit



Side Planks
45-secs on, 1-min rest
3 rounds - hard! Yep, my abs are that bloody weak Roll-Eyes

He was injured!

I think he can still do damage at WSM, though be hard to pick him over Thor.


Isnít this what people were saying about big Z just a couple of years ago?

Ray Williams squatting 490kg.

Four-hundy-n-nine-tee kee-lows?!?!?


Looked like decent depth as well, especially compared to some of his more recent big lifts

New programme/targets will start Monday so this was a final session with a bas***dised set/rep scheme.

Back squat
Bar x10+8
60x8
110x6
135x3+3+3+3 1:30min rest - easy

Bench
Bar x8+8
60x6
77.5x4
87.5x2+2+2+2+2+2 1:30-min rest - easy although slightly slower reps than I'd want, presumably due to mondays heavier session

Deadlift
60x6
100x6
140x4
160x3+3+3+3+3 -2-min rest - far better than Monday. Not the fastest reps, but better.



Planks
1:15-min on, 1-min rest
5 rounds

Alt dumbbell curls
12x10
16x8
20x5+5 - heavy - no more with right arm

V bar tricep pressdown
26.25x10
31.25X10+10+10 - last set was a bit difficult but nothing too bad.

Rest til monday ready to start with some proper work!!

So, after the rigors of the 1rm squat and 95% deadlift last Thursday I'm going to take this week easy and then start my programme over afresh with new targets.

Back squat
Bar x10
60x10+10
100x6
130x5
150x5+5+5+5 - 2-min rest. Heavy!

Bench
Bar x10+10
60x6
80x4
90x4+4+4+4 2:30-min rest - said I'd struggle with 3 4's but did 4 4's today and whilst hard, it was ok so fairly pleased with this.

Deadlift
60x6
100x6
140x6
160x4
180x2+2+2 2:00-min rest - hard! 2nd rep of the set was far easier than the first, even with a dead stop between. Made it so apparent how much easier it was with a belt on....or maybe I'm just still a bit fatigued Confused

Planks
1-min on, 1-min rest
3 rounds

Easy - but just working it back in after a few weeks rest, plus my rib is still sore


Done - pretty pleased with this session but I think the programme is going to really etst me after this week is over. Weeks 5+6 will be VERY interesting.
» Do you shop at Budgens? (Go to post)25-02-2019 @ 17:28 
I do the big shop at Aldi. With a big household it would cost a fortune shopping at Sainsbury's! Also, I actually thing some of the produce at Aldi is better than the big non-discount supermarkets. Aldi's "extra special" pizzas are awesome.

Plus, a pack of carrots is a pack of carrots, no need to pay any more than the lowest price.
