EllD90 said:5x5 @ 90% on DL is a lot of volume mate. Surely that's gonna f**k you for other sessions?

90% for 5x5 would be mental (doubt it's even possible!) but 195kg isn't 90% any more, max is definitely higher than 220kg atm just haven't tested it in a while. Having said that, I am starting to feel a bit run down at the minute. Might go a little lighter next week and just do a few reps with 180kg

70kg x 5, x 3
100kg x 3
120kg x 3
140kg x 2
160kg x 2
180kg x 1
195kg x 4 sets of 5 PB
Felt extremely tough today, even warmups felt a little off. Not fully recovered yet after last week I think

Front squat
60kg x 2 sets of 5
100kg x 5
115kg x 5
125kg x 5 PB
135kg x 4 PB
Did these because stones is one of my weaker events, hoping fronties will improve them

BB rows
60kg x 6
100kg x 5
120kg x 3 sets of 8 PB

T-bar rows
50kg x 5
75kg x 5
100kg x 3 sets of 8 PB

BW x 2 sets of 8
BW x 2 sets of 8 - neutral grip

Considering how f**ked I was by the time it came round to all the back assistance stuff was really pleased with how it went. Upper back isnt the weakness it once was, need to keep working on it though

I think thats because he is too short for that weight.
That changes his leverages.
I haven't seen him do anything that was better than his last year perfomances

I agree. I think if he'd have maintained his weight, worked on fitness and mobility and just focused on maintaining strength he'd have had a very good chance at WSM this year. As it is I can't see it happening.

60kg x 12
75kg x 8
85kg x 8
95kg x 6
105kg x 5
112.5kg x 3 PB
Got bruising all over the forearms after stones yesterday, wrists were feeling very sore & weak. Regret not bringing my wrist wraps for this now :/ shoulders were also very sore, all in all very happy with this given how I was feeling

Incline EZ bar skullcrushers
15kg per side x 12
15kg per side x 12
These seemed to be making my wrists worse so left it there

Pushdowns (v-bar)

140lbs x 12
160lbs x 12

With all this work I've been putting in arms are starting to look a lot more jacked Grin now time to rest and eat up for Monday, been a bit of a brutal week think I might have overdone the training a tad

Right, so after finally taking the plunge and entering a couple of big(er) comps, really need to gain some strength! Deadlift is probably the number one priority atm, as I've got max DL from floor in 8 weeks at England's and 260 for reps from the floor at yorkshires U105 in September. However I also really need to work on pressing as the log at England's is 110 for reps, the best I've done so far on log is 105x1. I think from Monday training will be as follows:

Monday - deadlift + lots of back assistance
Tuesday - overhead pressing
Wednesday - arms (lighter, just trying to work on my weaknesses)
Thursday - rest, maybe some conditioning if I can be bothered
Friday - squat + leg assistance
Saturday - benching, incline benching etc
Sunday - rest

If I want to include some event training I would probably do something like

Monday - deadlift + farmers & stones
Tuesday - back & bicep assistance work
Wednesday - overhead pressing + some tricep assistance
Thursday - rest
Friday - squat + yoke
Saturday - benching, incline benching etc

Plan for deadlift right now is to mainly focus building up my 5x5, this should really build a solid base and put a ton of mass on my back. Current best is 190 5x5, setting the goal of a 210 5x5 by England's. Also plan to work up to 140-150kg on bent over rows for reps in the same time frame. Going to train squats hard as well to really build leg strength off the floor, might even include some trapbar deadlifting on Fridays to get some extra pulling work in. Would probably only work up to a single top set on that though so that I'd be recovered in time for deadlifting on Monday.

For pressing, I'm going to ditch the log completely for now and just work with a barbell. Lots of strict presses, seated pressing & some push pressing as well. Also going to work on increasing my bench as well, to build pure pressing strength and strengthen my triceps for the lockout. For the last few weeks of the build up I'll go back to using a log but I feel barbells are better for me at building strength.

Didn't get enough sleep last night, felt tired but got some caffeine in me and cracked on with some event training

Push press
Bar x a couple of sets
40kg x 3
50kg x 3
60kg x 3
Added leg drive, was strict until this point
70kg x 3
80kg x 3
90kg x 3
95kg x 5 sets of 3 PB
Happy. Shoulders were a bit fatigued from the incline benching a couple of days ago but still made 95kg feel easy, there's deffo more there.

Farmers walk (every set 20m, drop & turn @ 10m)
97.5kg x 3 sets
First time doing these since tearing a callous a few weeks back. It hasn't recovered fully so didn't push it, weights felt light

Circus DB press
35kg x 3 each arm
40kg x 3 each arm
45kg x 3 each arm
50kg x 1 each arm - PB with left arm

Stone over yoke
90kg x 3
Add tacky
105kg x3 PB
105kg x 2 - tacky got really dirty on the first set, was practically worthless
90kg x 9 - PB

125kg x 30m
205kg 3 sets of 30m
Confident I'll be able to move with the heavier weights now, just trying to work on speed atm amd not do too much on yoke to fatigue myself

Chin up mate, is there a decent turn out on Thursday nights?

mark_f1 said:Get your name down for it and just enjoy the day. Yes the likes of Paul Smith and Ashton are on another level to most opens never mind juniors, but you'll still find you might mix it up in one or two of the events.

Just sent entry form off haha. Entered yorkshires U105 as well, you doing it?

Once again planned to rest today but the gym was calling me Grin

Pause incline bench
Bar x a couple of sets
60kg x 2 sets of 5
80kg x 3
90kg x 3
100kg x 3
105kg 3x3 PB
105kg x 4 - did this set touch & go

Floor press
60kg x 10
80kg x 8
100kg x 3 sets of 6
105kg x 6 - very tough
Second time trying these, definitely work the tris hard

BW x 15
+20kg x 10
+40kg x 8
+50kg x 4 - triceps were fried at this point

Incline DB press
35kg's 3 sets of 12 PB

Still undecided on whether I should do England's strongest junior in June. The event I'd be most worried about is log press (110kg for reps), so hammering pressing hard from every angle until I make up my mind.
