Ok heres the vid
Now I gotta do my wrap up for 2007 so bare with me it might take a while.After xmas last year I ditched the HIT training (Mentzer style) and began reading as much as I could on real world strength training.I bought SS and it was the best $ I ever spent.Here was where I started at last year strength wise.All sets to failure.Add the weight of the bar 8kgs.
Deadlift 102.5kg for 4 reps
Squat 1x3 50kg
Barbell Bench press 52.5kgs 6 reps
Chin BW x 2 or 3
This was after years of S(HIT) training excuse the pun
I started a new routine on the 4th of January last year and have never looked back since.I set a goal a while back just before starting the Texas Method of new 1rms for each big lift
Chin BW+20kg (45lbs)
Here are my new RMs tested recently
Squat 1x1 128kg (281lbs)
Bench 1x1 103kg (226lbs)
Chin 1x4 BW+20kg (44lbs)
Deadlift 1x1 146.5kg (323lbs) I tested this way back and havent really tested it since.
The weight of the bar is included in these figures although I dont normally included it In my normal journal entries.Simply because I just copy straight out of my logbook and its easier to write whats on the bar and not fuss about adding in bar weight.
Overall I am happy I just missed my Squat goal but I hope to plough well past these figures this year.Thanks for reading!
