Thank you Boar.

Very kind. But definitely don’t think that’s the case. Some INCREDIBLE u80’s knocking about now (much better than I was).

Anyway, first days lifting today. As this is an honest log…. I’ve literally not lifted since I started it. Peak. Performance!

Travelling to Exeter one day, then Morecambe, then London, then Tetbury = not conducive to productive consistent sessions.

But… excuses excuses….

I now have some time off over Christmas so intend to set a baseline then follow a regimented plan come January. (Don’t we all?!)

BW- 84.6kg (mainly cheese & Peroni)

Rear delts & mobilty- Lots

(IYT & Powell raise)


Warm up- Lots
100- 5
130-1 (HARD)
140-0.5 (I chickened out… went half way down then back up).

Little bit pathetic. Wanted a solid 140kg+ to start this journey. But now I’m mostly made of cheese I guess it’s an honest start.

Slingshot Bench

100- 5x10

Incline DB Bench

32.5- 10
37.5- 5
50- 8

That’s it.

Might (very strong ‘might’) dabble in some SM comps next year. More chance I’ll just build a ‘big’ bench for fun (we’ll see).

Strong pull Wayne!

Big fan of a trap bar deadlift.

Doesn’t correlate so well to conventional (but who cares)?!

Do the lifts you enjoy and the ones that are safe (my motto now I’m old and beat up).

Boar said:I have very fond memories of my time as a decent u90'er but if i were still doing it today it would mean i am still on the sauce .... and i dont want to die young i choose life !!

I have a certain admiration for those that stayed clean , coz drugs are awesome and deffo do what they say on the tin ,

very best of luck Paul , i will drop by to check your progress

Thanks Boar.

I stayed ‘clean’.

I was also never really that good…. So, I guess there’s a correlation there.

Might start posting again.

Drink too much and far too busy with work (selling high end gym equipment), seems like a perfect time to try and get a massive bench press…

Long story short (as possible): Used to be strong. Enjoyed documenting training on here (lots of likeminded individuals), got ‘less strong’ and ‘likeminded individuals’ also stopped posting…. But, in my depths of despair (after a few pints on a Wednesday), let’s get it started again.

Goal: Bench double Bodyweight (~85kg). Why? Seems the ‘easiest’ strength goal. I’ve previously done a 320kg deadlift (suited like a dirty whore) at 80kg… so have NO desire to pull heavy again. I’m knackered.

Please note, if the following are still active please get involved;

Pagan (loves a pint)
Boar (gave me a lift once)
Shane J (currently working with); if you see this… POST
Mark Clegg (legend… lift some s**t again)
Bullet tooth Tony (self explanatory)

jamspastic said:Lol, I really don't do many dips anymore, as I've been trying to work on my bench.

Maybe it's time just to accept my fate and realise I'm a s**t bencher and just work on what I'm good at?!?

Who actually really cares about bench? (Apart from Julius Maddox)

A +100kg dip though.... that’s badass.

jamspastic said:
Think I did 85kg for a double, I stopped as it was doing nothing for my log or overhead.
I did BNSF in 2019 I think, didn't do very well to be honest. I'm the type that needs constant training with events to get any good, and I just don't enjoy event training enough to do it all the time.

Fair enough.

Just smash the 100kg dip goal then. Grin

I’ll look on with great interest

Trap bar thruster?! Sounds extreme. What’s the rationale behind that mate?

Lesson to learn.... stay away from the DEVIL (aka... sumo deadlifts)

macroth said:5:30pm, just before curfew Roll-Eyes : 4.3k/25' run with my 12-year old, then guided him through a short strength workout. He says he's keen to start training regularly so I'll try to nudge him along, provided he keeps enjoying himself. He tends to jump from one grand project to the next when left to his own devices.

I think it was BMX for me at 12.
Then gymnastics.
Then BMX again.
Then rock climbing.
Then ‘bodybuilding’ into powerlifting into strongman....

Kind of wish I stuck with the BMX/Climbing Grin
