FAT_SAM said:Decent pinching mate, 2x20kg plates soon.


I was gonna try it today, but i gave up when i couldnt find 2 20's that fit together properly - someone was using one of the ones that you normally use for it, and it seemed like every other one i picked up was slightly warped...

Unlucky on the 227.5kg, no doubt you'll get it soon. Was it hook gripped?


Everything was hook gripped apart from the 2 heavy rack pulls. I was in the suit, and so its a bas***d to get down to the bar and get the grip set properly. Just needs some work, i have only been using it for a week or two now, cant expect it to be perfect every time yet.

Pause Squats - all strict form, deep with ~3sec pause at the bottom, apart from the two belted reps, that had ~2sec pauses.
1 x 5 20kg
1 x 1 60kg
1 x 1 70kg
1 x 1 80kg
1 x 1 90kg
1 x 1 100kg
1 x 1 110kg
1 x 1 120kg
1 x 1 130kg
1 x 1 140kg
1 x 1 150kg belt on
1 x 1 160kg

Finished off with back raises, hammy curls and reverse hypers. All 3x10.
» What would you change about WSM (Go to post)21-09-2010 @ 19:29 
I quite like max events, allthough the WSM things allways seem to be for reps, rather than max weight - except i think the max log is in it this year?

Sumo Deads
1 x 5 60kg
1 x 5 100kg
1 x 3 130kg
1 x 1 150kg
1 x 1 180kg belt and suit bottoms
1 x 1 200kg suit straps, very fast
1 x F 220kg - came off line at the top, easilly strong enough to pull this...
1 x F 227.5kg - didnt get grip set right, and it gave out about an inch from the top - will get it next time for sure.

Rack Lockouts
1 x 5 120kg
1 x 5 150kg
1 x 3 180kg
1 x 1 200kg

20min or so rest, then:

1 x 5 60kg
1 x 1 80kg
1 x 1 90kg
1 x 1 100kg
1 x 1 110kg
2 x 1 115kg - think this is a "comp bench" PB with the wide grip
1 x 2 60kg - focussing on speed
1 x 2 65kg
1 x 2 70kg

finished off with various stretching and generally distracting other people from their training session.

As per last week, i am now aware of how much glute and hip issues can affect the deadlift. 240kg equipped is a reasonable goal for you for year's end. I reckon you could get that. However i would still be a lot more impressed with a 220kg conventional, belt only effortTongue


conventional is gayer than benching.
» Toby's training log (Go to post)15-09-2010 @ 20:50 
Had a shot at 220 today, it came off the ground about an inch but i was just completely f**ked. When the glute heals up i think 220-230 unequipped easy, and probably 10-20kg or so out of the suit as it is now.

forgot to update log yesterday, because nothing f**king happened. did some light pause squats working on form, and pretty much nothing else.

Today:
Bench
1 x 10 20kg
1 x 5 60kg
1 x 1 80kg 5sec hold
1 x 1 90kg 5sec hold
1 x 1 95kg 3sec hold
1 x 1 100kg 3sec hold
1 x 1 105kg 3sec hold
1 x 1 110kg
1 x 1 115kg
1 x 1 117.5kg - all lowered controlled and similar to my shirted bench style.

Sumo Deadlifts
1 x 1 60kg
1 x 1 80kg
1 x 1 100kg
1 x 1 120kg
1 x 1 140kg
1 x 1 160kg belt on
1 x 1 180kg
1 x 1 200kg - sumo PB

Finished off with some light lower back work.

Happy with the new sumo progress, looks like it is gonna be way stronger than my conventional very soon! Not to mention the advantages once i put a suit on...

Bench
1 x 10 20kg
1 x 5 60kg
1 x 3 70kg
1 x 1 80kg
1 x 1 90kg
1 x 1 100kg
1 x 1 110kg
1 x F 123.5kg - went way off line, and struggled off the chest
did some more, lowering slow, holding just off the chest and pressing:
1 x 2 80kg
1 x 2 90kg
1 x 1 95kg
1 x 1 100kg
1 x 1 105kg
1 x 1 110kg - held for a second, didnt press.

these felt great, hitting my sticking point perfectly and should help me progress quickly.

finished with lat pulldowns (4x8) and some pinch grip work - worked up to 2x20kg plates, lifted a few inches off the floor on first attempt. will get it soon!

Wiegieboard said:Sounds like you're going about it sensibly with respects to volume. Sure you'll get your 125 next week. Good luck!


Yeah, bench is progressing well but i dont want to do too much, did 10 singles the other day and it f**ked my recovery...

squats today!!!
Squats
1 x 5 20kg
1 x 5 60kg
1 x 5 80kg
1 x 3 100kg
1 x 1 120kg
1 x 1 140kg
1 x 1 160kg
1 x 1 170kg
1 x 1 175kg

Walkouts
1 x 1 180kg held for 10 seconds
1 x 1 200kg held for 10 seconds
1 x 1 220kg held for 10 seconds
1 x 1 240kg - didnt walk out, but lifted off and held for a while.

finished off with 5x10 hamstring curls and some stretching.

felt great, still struggling a bit on deapth due to the hip, but strength is coming back quickly - added 15kg since last week. walkouts felt great, but 240 was a little heavy.

Jesus Christ you wanna hit a plateau some time or something!? This is verging on ridiculous!


Not sure when i will plateau, with the progress i am making at the moment i dont think i will for a while yet. consistantly hitting 120kg wide grip now, looks like it is gonna be equal to my close grip within the next week or two. Hopefully i will get my years targets of 300lb raw 400lb equipped bench!

Bench
1 x 10 60kg
1 x 10 70kg
1 x 5 80kg
1 x 3 90kg
1 x 1 100kg
1 x 1 110kg
1 x 1 120kg
1 x F 125kg - very close, needed a spot due to going off line. Will get it next week

did a few more singles around 110kg, i forgot the exact numbers.. 6 singles over 90% in total.

Finished off with some tate press and chest supported row.

Tried some very light pulls today, glute felt good but didnt want to push it too hard!

Haha, think that will take a while. My wide grip is more or less as strong as my close grip at last... quite happy with that!

Wiegieboard said:Nice bench pb Toby.
It's amazing looking at your numbers week by week.


Yeah i am making pretty decent progress at the moment, quite happy with it! 2 new raw bench PBs today:

Bench Pinkies On Ring
1 x 10 20kg
1 x 5 60kg
1 x 1 80kg
1 x 1 90kg
1 x 1 100kg

1 x 1 121kg PB
1 x 1 122.5kg


Put the shirt on afterwards and did various boards working down to a few touches, failed 172.5. no shirted work for a few weeks now, then i will give that 175 a shot. Did a bit of assistance afterwards, rear delts and tate press.
