ME Bench Day

Taking an easy(ish) week this week, will probably only lift twice. Anyways benched today with the goal of working on my setup. I suck when things get heavy, I have got some ideas why and will work on them but needless to say bench is the one lift that constantly gives me the shits.I did a couple singles with 100kg and up to 107kg .I came loose on the 107kg and it was harder than it should have been, still that’s 4kg away from my old PR at 7kg less bodyweight so I am somewhat happy about that. Dropped the weight down and repped out for a couple sets, man these rep sets are getting me swole LOL. Finished with cable rows for lats. Solid day, wish I could stay tight on the bench tho!

ME Bench Day 10/8/10

Bench
1x1 100kg
1x1 105kg
1x1 107kg
1x15+7+5 RP 60kg

DC Cable Rows
4x8 82kg

I am pretty sure I will be starting a squat wave with the SSB this week, looks like I’ll have some Olympic plates to work with. Nice!!

ME Squat Day

Enjoyed a nice easy week last week and hit the gym rested up nice.I did box squat mornings from a defecit of about 1.5 inches.Yikes that extra depth was kick ass I hit 135kg for a single then missed 140kg.I removed the defecit and hit 140kg missing 145kg. Not entirely happy with that as my PR is about 150kg on the bar.I will smash that record next time so fuck it. I did GMs off pins next, these were VERY strong kicked my ass good, used about 260ish for sets of 8.Finished with reverse crunches and then tried SSB split squats, these are a keeper I need to really hit the glutes hard and these will do it.

DE Bench Day

Benched vs an orange band today, used around 50kg on the bar for about 9 sets, I used 3 grips mostly closer grips and finished my wide grip sets with a yellow band on there too. Moved to some kroc rows next for sets of 10 and then some pushdowns and some pushups with a CG. My dumbbell collars are fucked so I need to get more, that will give me more to work with on upper days as any type of extension just destroys my elbows at the moment.

DE Bench Day 20/8/10

Bench + Orange Band
7x3 50kg
Add Yellow Band
2x3 50kg

Krocs
3x10 50kg

Band Pushdowns
1x12+7+7 RP

CG Pushups with Orange Band
1x12+8+8

Need those bells, using bands for accessory stuff is gay.

ME Squat Day

I did GMs to pins today for ME work, smoked a bunch of PRs. I think the last sets was 300ish for 3 reps, nice!! I tried a few box squat mornings after as I really wanted to see if I could get a PR there too, no dice back and legs were smoked from the GMs oh well.I did 2 reps sets to finish standing on 1.5’ blocks (cos I cant lower the pins) and then did a shitload of split squats.I was gassed and had a headache (seems to happen with split squats a lot) so I cut it there. I will try do heavy abs tonight with some light hams too. Great day.

ME Squat Day 23/8/10

GM To Pins
1x2 125kg (PR)
1x3 130kg (PR)
2x5 100kg (standing on plates)
Box Squat Mornings
1x1 135kg
2xM 151kg Got her moving but couldn’t push it up. Need abs cos I don’t have that extra 3 ‘ of fat on my waist anymore!

SSB Split Squats
6 sets of 8 up to 55kgx10


I will need to do more and more heavy ass ab work, I might throw WOD back in see how the low back holds up.

Wow this just destroyed my entire core with a womanly 175lbs, a weight I can probably do for 30ish on a reg GM I did 2x8 with, LOL this bar will make you cock strong for sheezey. Finished with roman chair situps, these are a keeper and then GHRs for reps.Fucking ace day.
