Hitting 2x2 on all lifts next week if i feel good

Awesome stuff. I'm gonna have to attempt a couple of doubles soon too. I have no idea what my dead and squat singles are.

True that. I'm gonna have to get jacked and tanned if I wanna continue with that nonsense.

I'm all about the 8s and 5s right up until April. Then it's back to 5s 3s and 2s.

I've decided to alter my writing style as I'm unsure if everybody knows the format I write in.
From now on it's gonna be for example 4x8/100 which would mean 4 sets of 8 reps at 100kg.

I was back at training today doing the squats and the bench press. I was only away from the gym for 9 days but christie me am I glad to be back at it!

All 10 racks and 8 platforms were taken tonight so I started off on bench. It went a little somethin' like this uh huh.



It felt f**king brilliant to tell the truth. By far the best technique I've displayed to date. I paused on every rep. at the chest for a count of 1 and my velocity was great until the second last rep. of the last set where it slowed to about half the pace. I'm feeling my pressing line better now, my forearms and wrists are in a much better, verticle position, my lats are assisting my lift and I'm increasing velocity throughout the lift.
Best technical bench session to date.


1x8/70kg front squat.

Having been in bed for the best part of a couple of weeks, my legs were pretty stiff today and cramped during warmup which I've not had happen since my first week lifting back in august I think it was. The movement felt reasonable on my back squats (a little lifting with the back on the last 2 reps) and felt spectacular on my front squats. I worked my technique hard today having never trained front squats with a barbell before and had Stevie coach me through my depth and technique. I really want to continue with the front squats every week. I could feel the stability in my core and the technique just seemed so natural to me. I'll be adding 5 kilos each week until my form starts to suffer.

I had great fun today and learned a fair bit.

I'm jealous that you guys have an axle!
It's the run up to the liftoff. You starting your peaking next week?

Glad you're on the mend man. The lift off approaches! It's gonna be pretty competitive I reckon. The eat off afterwards is gonna be even MORE competitive haha!

Hi Toby.

Yea I've been resting. Whatever it was it hit me hard. My skin went all f**ked up and I had a big rash all over my body but I'm back to training squats tomorrow. I'm looking forward to my re-introduction to society.

I still look much like a well cooked pizza, but the pain in my skin and insides isn't as bad. I'm really wanting to get back to it this Tuesday coming. I'm itching like f**k to squat.

Did you work your new bench technique today? I'm sure you'll get a new pb soon enough!

A sweatband is wise when you're balding. Your forehead gets bigger and bigger and the sweat pours more and more.

those 5x5s are always tough mothers, especially without the belt. Good luck beating that personal best soon enough.

I'm just gonna spend the next while in bed doing the wise thing. How are you healing up yourself dude?

Yeasterday, I thought I was getting over this flu thing that's been bothering me for the past week or so. Then at about 8pm I started getting a sore throat, by 10pm it had swollen up and I had aches and pains. I decided to go for a shower, but my skin was so sensitive that I couldn't stand under the waterjet.
I went to bed soon after where I shivered and shook all night.
I was supposed to get up for college as to hand in my final assessment for the block but found that when I stood up, I promptly fell over, so I went back to bed. Around 13:30, my goodies arrived from I stumbled down the stairs and signed for my package.

I couldn't really make breakfast because I didn't have the energy and felt s**t, so I ended up mixing some whey, powdered oats, creatine, vitamin c powder and strawberry nesquik in my shaker.Not the heartiest of breakfasts to tell the truth. I still feel like s**t and am pissed at the possibility of missing yet another squat and bench session tomorrow.
In an hour or two I'm gonna take a couple of ZMA and sleep until tomorrow.
