Overhead press day.
Used a bar in this gym's squat rack. Again, it was thicker and felt heavier than than the normal olympic barbell I am used to using.
However, again will count it as 20kg, it could be 22.5-25 however. I compared the two and it was def. heavier.

Military press, supposedly 85, 90, 95% with 5 3 and 1 reps for each %. I reckon that last single was at least 60kg, so I'm happy with it.
40x5
50x5
55x3
57.5x1

Passed out a bit after the 2nd 55kg rep so didn't push the next one because I was passing out there too. HARDCORE! Don't know why, probably had my air in my chest.

Incline bench
40x5
50x5
55x5
60x5
65x3, PR.

Pullups
A good load of pullups!
Slightly wider than shoulder.
12 pullups, 12 pullups, 15 neutral grip chins, 15 pullups.

And now, bb'ing trickery!
BB Shrugs 110kg
supersetted with
Band aparts with the #2 band

2x15, then did 20 reps with the shrugs.

Good stuff.

Deadlifts
80, 85, 90% of a supposed 130 max, about 10% under what it really is.

60x5
100x3
110x3
120x3
130x3

Splendid.

Band leg curls with #2 band

Some grip work and abs.

In uk!
Coming to Manc in 8 days.

Trained today at a place called the Academy Fitness.
Nice place, lot of heavy weight and thick bars, untidy and people with beards. Brilliant!

Did 2nd wave of benching, which was odd because I used a barbell there that wasn't the usual sort I'm used to, it wasn't as thin as normal olympic barbells, slightly fatter. I will put it down as 20kg, but I think it was 22.5 or maybe even 25.

Flat bench
barx10
40kgx10
60x5
65x3
70x3
75x2, the second one I dropped down too fast so the 2nd rep was a grinder where it shouldn't have.

So instead of 80,85, 90% of my supposed max of 70 (lower than what it is but for the groove's sake), I did 95, 100, 105.
Splendid.

DB rows
20x10
30x10
40x12
45x12 with straps, nice thick dumbell handles but my grip is pitiful, you see.

Shrugs again with this mighty bar.
60x10
100x10, tough on the grip, madness.
Straps, 120x10.

Grip work needed!

Not a bad session.

What are student unfriendly hours?
I wasn't hinting at anything :P
Just curious if there was a nice tyre lying around somewhere in town.
» Where do you fellas do your strongman training? (Go to post)07-09-2008 @ 08:37 
And anyone in central Manchester?

I mean the heavy tyre flips, the farmers walks, the log presses, keg tosses.
You know the drill.

Where do you do it?

Thanks guys, appreciate all the replies.
NSCA seems the best so far.

If their front page mentions "1RM BENCH" and "CHAINS" in the same sentence I'm sold.

Thanks for the replies fellas.

If anyone can point me in the direction of any associated work for a skint Uni student, would appreciate it. Anything, really.

That looks like a load of cobblers, thanks though.

To work in a gym, on even the register, what kind of certificates would I need?

Does Joni work in a gym?

Having to get up for 2 years at 5:30 or earlier, Luke, does strange things to a man. Army habits die hard!
And I don't have the money or inclination to go out on the razzle for more than 1 or 2 nights a week mate.
Also looking for a job in the meantime, as you know.

Anyone know where I can enroll on a strength training or personal training course in the UK?
I have a few in America in mind.

Could make some decent part time money in that industry, I have a lot of enthusiasm and knowledge.
Just need some sort of certificate.
