DE Bench Day

Benched vs 2 yellow bands today, used 1 plate for most sets and did alot of them paused.I have taken my grip out to pointer on the rings for my max grip, seems to shorten the ROM alot.Gonna work this grip for a while and see what goes.Anyway worked up a little at the end to 2 plates. Moved toKrocs next for high reps and then someCG banded pushups for RP, followed by pressdowns.Good session.

Extra Workout

GHRs 3x10-12
Some rolling fro the glutes and piriformis.

Last nights refeed
Chicken and pumpkin lasagne
Huge salad with balsamic vinegar
of a chicken roast
coffee
and a little chocolate

Nice eating, pumkin is probably my favourite veggie, training wise my hams need work, they will get a lot more GHRs as warm-ups for a while until I can do them with added weight.

ME Bench

Hit the 2 board again today, went for some doubles this time, did not hit a max set just did a bunch of quality reps.Took forever to warm the CNS up everything felt like shit. Also due to widening my grip out to pointer on the ring I have had to change racks. The other rack I have has the gayest hooks which makes unracking heavy weight a pain in the ass. I really need a lift off partner to use this rack.Arrrgghhhh. Anyways I will stick with this grip tho as it is way easier on the shoulders with the reduced ROM. I did a bunch of rest pause after for accessory work shying just short of failure for the most part. Just wanted to finish up as the body was saying nope don’t feel like lifting right now.

ME Bench 1/9/10

2 Board
2x2 92.5kg
2x2 95kg
3x2 100kg
1x1 102.5kg

DB Press fatgrips
1x10+6 RP (wow way down here)

EZ Skullcrusher To Chin
1x16+8+8 RP 22.5kg

Chins Paused Top and Bottom
1x10+5+5 RP BW (Lame)

Wow I suck at rep work on chins, always have.

You're finding that a wider grip is easier on your shoulders? I found it quite the opposite.

I did during training but now the hurt like fuck.It might have been the dumbell presses tho, they felt like shit.I will do one more workout wider grip and see how they feel.

DE Squat Day

Box squatted vs a blue band today, worked around 260 then up to 290ish i think for doubles.Got some good work in then moved to SSB GMs, the worlds most humbling exercise, finished with roman chair situps.Great workout, really happy with the squatting.

DE Squat Day 3/9/10

Box Squat + Blue Band (In 38 Centurian)

8x2 110kg
1x2 120kg
1x2 125kg

SSB GM
1x5 60kg
2x6 65kg (will try add reps next week)

Roman Chair Situps (plates behind Head)
2x8+ 11.25kg
1x15 BW

Had to go to a physio appointment for my hams, plan was to come back and do some extra work for low back and hams but had a bunch of needling done and the butt is a bit sore so i'll do it tommorow as a warmup for speed bench.

Might throw some vids up soon.





DE Bench day

Used straight weight today, and will do so for a while, bands just don’t seem to carry over to benching as well as squats do for me. Paused half my sets, TNG the rest then did a couple sets off a 3 board. I changed my setup to my feet tucked behind me with an arch (spent A LOT of time working my Tspine on the roller before hand) I felt tighter but felt like the leg drive was not getting to the bar.I couldn’t feel them helping a lot? I’ll try post a vid but the camera is being dicky so who knows.Finished with some DB rows then high rep CG pushups.I like pushups.

DE Bench Day 4/9/10

Bench
2x5 70kg Paused
2x5 75kg Paused
1x5 75kg TNG

3 Board
1x5 80kg
2x5 85kg

Fat Grip Krocs
1x8 Ramped to 50kg
1x4 60kg (lost grip)

CG Pushup
1x25+8+8 RP

I brought my grip in about a half inch per side, with pointer on the ring I cant seem to use the triceps as much.I might keep playing around with this tho as I feel its easier to flare at the right time with a wide grip.



ME Squat Day

Pulled raw vs 2 orange bands today.Hit a couple PRs I think, I havent maxed on these for a while but the strength was there.I think I hit 350+Bands.Moved to DB split squats next and used the 40kg bells.Finished with RHs light and then obliques.Good day.

ME Squat Day 6/9/10

Sumo+ 2 Orange Bands Raw
1x1 130kg
1x1 140kg
1x1145kg (PR?)
1x1 150kg (PR)

6x1 120kg

DB Split Squats
4x8 Up to 2x8 40kg

RHs
?

DB Side Bends 2x15,12 30kg




Extra Workout

Went back in and did a few sets of static abs, farted around with a high rep set of RDLs, just to get the blood flowing, meant to do a few sets of RHs but forgot LOL.I also intended to do a bunch of GHRs but for some reason natural GHRs annoy my knees, does anyone else find this?

Yellow Band Abs 100 reps
RDLs 1x40 1 Plate
