ME Bench Day

Been sick for 2 days and haven’t eaten a thing, feeling better tho so I pressed today. Went well I missed a PR at 61kg but hit a nice volume PR. I did a bunch of rowing next and then some tricep work, pretty good day, I worked out that JMs to a 3 board don’t destroy my elbows but still gets me a tonne of tricep work. Very cool.

DE Squat Day

Thought it was gonna be a great day today, warmups were on point squats were feeling fantastic, sitting back perfectly, tight arch, stance way out wide, anyways got to about 117kg and wanted to hit about 5-8 sets with it, trouble is with the blue and the orange bands on the bar I really struggle to rack the bar, there is that mush tension on the bar so I had to dump it in the lower pins.On top if it all the set was SLOW so I Said fuck this noone was home and I couldn’t get a hand racking so I cut the squats there and got after some ssb GMs.Did a bunch of split squats to finish and heavy reverse crunches.I need to hit more volume with this much band tension, in future I'll start my wave with about 2 plates or so and do 10 sets and wave up from there.

Bench Day

3rd week of the bench program I am running, had a pretty good day, the weights are still a little low but the workouts are getting a little tougher. Did a bunch of chins after benching, it always amazes me how bad I am at repping chins, I can do sets of 5 with 20+kg around my waist but I would struggle to hit 10 BW chins, weird. Anyways finished with a bunch of tricep work.Solid day, been eating up a bit more in my refeeds, starting to fill back out and looking a little thicker without the fat gain.Thanks WD!!

ME Squat Day

OOOOhhhh those zercher squats, man great movement.I used wide stance box zerchers for ME today, hit a couple PRs, top set of 135kg, I wanted a 2nd rep but the bar tends to slip at these heavier weights so I racked it. I didn’t want to drop the precious Eleiko bar again! and then hit up RDLs for reps.Finished with a load of Rev hypers. Good day.

Press Day

Took it easy today, shoulders are a bit banged up, usually an easy week takes care of that, I need em fresh to bench on Saturday. Just concentrated on a bunch of rowing today with tricep work.Did low cable rows and BB rows for back and then heavy extensions and light JMs for tris, this got me quite swole up LOL

Press Day 27/10/10

BB Rows

3x3 75kg
2x10 60kg

I know its seems weird to do 3x3 on rows but its something Wesley had in one of my routines a while back and it sure helped rep the lighter weights better. The BB rows is weird for me I just cant seem to get a good groove on them. Never have really

ME Squat Day

Pulled sumo in the suit today, wanted to try a few tips from Ex thread.Went well, hit 487lbs for a top single.A true Max effort tho, I would not have made another gram on the bar!! Moved to RDLs next and repped out and then hit up the 1 arm DB swings. I feel confident in the changes I made and will stick with them, 13lbs to go before 500 falls, I have milked the suit for all I will get out of it (which seems like nothing now, I think its stretched cos I dont get that nice POP off the floor anymore, I noticed nothing when I put the straps up). I am thinking of doing more raw conventional work as long as the hammy holds up, and of course Box squats. I would also like to pick up some chains too.

Bench Day

Benched in the new rack today, a few things that became evident. The J hooks are WAAAYYY oversized, I had to do a 3 bord press to get the damn bar out, first order of business Monday morning at work is to file those suckas down. I also cant spread my feet out as wide as I hit the side of the rack, no biggie I’ll just bench out of the rack.Anyways did my sets and things are getting a bit tougher now, I am starting to hit numbers closer to my old 5rms. Looking forward to seeing how the rest of this phase goes.Hit up chins next, for clusters which were great and then did some CG pushups to finish with hammer curls.

ME Squat Day

Pulled sumo in the gear again, this time I reversed the centurian.I got a tip from a friend who lifts in the IPF that the centurian makes a great deadlift suit if you wear it backwards, I thought he was shitting me but no it seemed great. Hit 489.5lbs (maybe 490 if you count he collars LOL) PR. That pull took all I had but I noticed a little better pop off the floor th so that was cool.I did conv rack pulls at mid shin with quadded yellow bands next for reps.Wow I forgot how hard bands are to pull against, I will really try to progress these over the next weeks.Finished with step ups I will smash abs and extra hams tommorrow.Good ass day.
