Im a happy Man!

Thursday 27th September:

Squat 140kg 1x5
Bench 115kg 1x3
Deadlift 165kg 1x5

I trained after a long day at work and was still able to get my PR's easy. I was pretty psyched up to get my 140 squat, that helped alot today. Thanks for the advice Eric Im STOKED.

Sunday 30th September:

Squat 122.5kg 3x5
Bench 102.5kg 2x5,1x3
Rows 92.5kg 3x5
Grip work

Todays session went ok, except for my last set of bench. I am only resting 2 minutes between sets, so I may increase to 3 minutes on bench. I will leave my bench weight the same next week and get my 3x5.

Any reason why? I usually give it 3 mins + especially on later sets.

Hi Hopper,

I like to keep the workout moving allowing only as much rest as needed. Until recently I was only resting 1 and a half mins. Although I will now need to increase to 3 or more if I want to keep increasing strength. I guess part of the reason was trying to keep a certain level of fitness. Training Time is also a factor, some earlier sessions were already taking 1 and a half hours, with 90 seconds between sets.

Ok cool, I think the extra rest is a good idea, all of the 5x5 influenced articles Ive read seem to think its necessary. From my own experience it works great and I keep the shorter rest periods for higher rep work.

PS do you follow the footy??

What a devistating weekend it was for us Power faithful!!
