Surely grip would help more in deadlift, unless you have trouble holding on to the bar in bench for some reason.

The grip would be great for when I'm working those 8s in the future. Especially if I start lifting more weight than my baby cousin haha.
For some reason in the bench when I grip the bar as tight as I can, it feels more stable. Hopefully it'll benefit both well.

I tried this today and failed miserably.
I managed the 10s and aaaaalmost got the 15s. 3 of the other lads managed the 15s but we all bombed out on the 20s. That takes some serious grip.

It was seriously f**king tough dude. I'm gonna work at it though and try a little grip work twice a week. Who knows, it might even up my benchpress a little bit in the long run haha.

It was pretty good dude. My account of the day is posted up on Wiegie gets his grunt on.

I'm just jealous I wasn't Unhappy lol

Heal up well man! I'm looking forward to seeing a 160 bench out of you in the not too distant future! I was gonna say I'm catching up but that's wishful thinking to a whole new level lol.

Saturday November 7th 2009

I was still ill today in that I felt weak and tired. My asthma was playing up big time too but training twice a week is pretty much all that I look forward to, so I wasn't missing another session.


I'm much enjoying my new warmup routine. I start at roughly 50% of my working weight and do two sets of 8. Then I bump the weight up by ten kilos a pop, doing 3s at each weight until I reach my working weight. For some reason when I do it like this, my technique stays tighter. I also feel less strain on my sacrum and much warmer in the muscles.


Bench: (Speedbench)

I've been adjusting my technique for a couple of weeks now. Arching better, pulling my shoulderblades closer together whilst flaring my lats, pulling my elbows tighter, breathing better and decreasing the distance I push the bar by rotating my elbows better and keeping my shoulderblades pulled together at the top of the movement.


I then executed a single.


T-Bar Row (Wide grip)



We then went on and had a little fun.
We watched the video on the training videos section with the two 20 plates getting pinch lifted. We decided to try this too. I managed the 2 ten plates no problem and almost managed the 2 15kg plates once. The other guys managed the 2 15kg plates with chalk but we all bombed out on the 2 20kg plates. Holy s**t that ain't easy!
I've got wee lassies hands, so I reckon I'm gonna keep working at it each week to see if I can manage the 2 20kg plates eventually.
It's a new challenge.

After training was the post workout Saturday Maccy d's trip where my body enveloped a large Big Mac meal with coke and a free cheeseburger which I always enjoy the most being a cheap jock c**t and all. We then had to battle on back to Glasgow in the rain as the underground was stapped full of people looking to partake in some spousal abuse upon return from the football match at Ibrox Stadium. I didn't enjoy that part so much as I've never enjoyed crowds, never mind football crowds.
The train home from Glasgow central was decent with some ultra lightweight but surprising large breasted bootie (yes, bootie!) on display right across from my now rather fortunate arse. Given that it's November, you gotta wonder how some girls can walk around in as little as they do. I'm not complaining mind, just curious.

Roll on Tuesday which is squat day! I'm also gonna be seeking a 105 bench from fresh. 2 singles in a week :/ . o O (The f**k am I thinking?)

"Got out a bit late and ended up walking home in the rain becasue the queue for Ibrox subway station was about 2 hours long as a game had just finished..."

The walking was supergay I have to agree. My hooded top is still wet just now. I never enjoy walking around that area on matchday. As I said, it's like the polar opposite of Mensa are having a field day out and the carers have gone A.W.O.L.

Glad you had fun with those chains. I'll be giving them a shot in 3 weeks I think. I'll likely try the bands the week after that.

Good to see it was a good day all in for you.
A clean double at 200 will be with you soon enough!

You need to make your way along to the palace!

You can drop weights, chalk up and burp if you need to. Plus, the door's always kept open for if you need to be sick or simply grab fresh air between sets.

In other news. The first of my goodies arrived today. My 10lb bag of whey. It looks a lot like a bag of cement.

Good times, people!

I am coming over your way on saturday so i will wait till then, we only have bumper plates at ours and 2 20's is stupidly thick, just one of them is about as thick as the video

There are solid Eleiko 20s by the power cage in the Palace. I'll bring the camera to see if any of us can do it. Simon may be able to because he works his grip and forearms quite a lot. As for myself, I wont be putting bets on it.

To help improve tissue quality until you find a way to achieve what you want exercise wise.

That gadget is two tennis balls wrapped in zinc oxide tape.

I've just spotted the suited deadlift. That was f**king awesome! LOL

I'm giving that a try on Saturday. Wish I had a bird who could do that. The practical applications are limitless.
