ME Squat Day

Had my shifts at work rearranged to afternoons this week, it seems to be REALLY affecting me.I am so lethargic in the mornings and cannot seem to wake my CNS. Did pin squats for ME work and managed a measly 280ish? WTF I couldn’t budge 315.I will say I did have the pins a couple inches lower but still I was PISSED! I will smash these next week.After this I still couldn’t wake up so I did 3 sets of hypers and stopped.

Tough day today, I hit all of the prescribed singles but missed out on the rep work. I managed to press 115kg again but it was tougher than it should have been.

Back to some westside for a while, I definately need to handle heavy weight to keep the strength up, will use lower volume and deload my bench more frquently than I have been.Looking forward to speed bench again too as I have become quite slow.Anyways used paused pin press at 1 inch above chest for ME work today, ended up hitting a true Max of 115kg paused for 2 secs , nice.I really need to get back my bench strength its starting to really get me down.I should have benched 300 by now.Moved to 1 arm Barbell rows for high reps, some RE DB presses and lots of band pullaparts. my chiro has told me to up the upper back work cos i dont do enough so warmups for lower days will be some sort of row from now on (like I used to do!)

ME Bench Day

Good day today, I have been spending a lot of time working on my setup lately, I am starting to feel a lot better about benching but I still need to find that setup that gets me leg drive with no low back pain, I feel strong the way I am setting up but it hurts! Anyways I think I tied a PR for a double then threw reverse bands on and did some rep work off a 2 board paused for 3-5 secs, these pauses feel great. Hit up a bunch of rows and some DB benching to finish.

DE Squat Day

So I am warming up with my mini band today for squats doing hypers, and the bloody thing snapped, balls cos I needed that for squats so I said screw it I'll deload as I felt like ass anyways and take a new max with straight weight.Ended up with 450 off a parallel box, didnt take any other attempts cos my hips are tore up, best not to miss straight weight either, it fucks with your head. After I just did some abs and banded GMs.Feeling flat but I'll be ready to bench tommorow.
