ME Bench

Skipped, was sick until Friday.

DE Squat Day

I finished my wave with the blue band this week, I hit 6 sets with 110kg on the barbell then hit up a bunch of accessory work. Abs and shit like that.Good day , still feeling off tho.I can remember when 110kg was my max with the blue band not too long ago! I forgot to mention it was my first day using my brand new Eleiko Comp bar so all weights listed can now have 20kg added to them for total lbs.This bar is awesome deep knurling and under load and band tension it didn’t bend at all.Gold!

DE Squat Day 17/9/10

Box Squat + Blue Band
1x2 90kg
1x2 100kg
6x2 110kg
1x1 120kg

DE Bench Day

Last week of paused work for this wave, I used around 200lbs for sets of 5, setup is feeling better although I could probably time my leg drive better, still it feels better tho.I moved to barbell rows super strict next, I seem to get more out of these with girl weights and lotsa reps. Finished with weighted CG pushups. Still feeling sluggish from being sick, so no more was done.

Hit up GMs today for ME, its been a while since I did regular GMs, worked up to a pretty big PR of 308lbs for 5.Decided to go back down for 1 more set of 5. I’ll hit the max triple next time I do GMs. Moved to speed pulls after with 2 orange bands, did about 12 sets here and then hit abs. Also did a lot of hypers as warm-ups. Remember all sets listed add 20kg bar to total.

ME Bench Day

Real stinker today, could not get going on the bench 2 plates felt like 10 plates, ended up with a pitiful 3 board with 110kg for a couple weak sets. Moved to accessory work which was great I did heavy chins some tris and curls too. Next week I will throw in some heavy shoulder work instead of a bench variant, and hit the chins real hard. I need to work shoulders more.

DE Bench Day

Well, RE Bench day for Mikey! I did triples today with about 205ish I think. Did 8 sets then hit up rows and some extra tris and pushups. Damn good day, I’ll be sticking to paused benching I think, I tend to have better control and get loose easy TnG. Looks like ME day will be heavy shoulder day and DE day will become bench day.I will see how this goes.

DE Bench day

Decided to work up today to see where this paused thing is going.I managed to hit 115kg total bar weight, which is 253 lbs.Not too bad considering its only about 10lbs off my old TnG record.I was probably good for a little more with a lift off as I hit that weight for 2 singles and shitgrooved the first attempt.I gotta push that bar back on time dammit.I did a RP rep set after and then did shitloads of rowing and some extra tris.Good day, the pausing stays.

Suited up today and pulled sumo, couldn’t get a groove going today, felt I should have been much stronger.It was an early morning workout tho and I felt a bit tired too. Plan was to pull doubles and I wanted 210kg for a dub but no dice the single was tough as hell.I did hit 204kg for 2 which is a PR but felt like 200 should be mine!! Did a shitload of RDLs next and then some light step ups. Glutes and hams will come up I will make sure of it!!
