Prop Cyril - PHOTOS HERE....!!!



  • Right Squidly, time to stop just lurking here and start recording.

    History - Prop Cyril still playing, though on the disabled list at the moment with a booboo on his knee, so over the last month he has been back at the gym training.Â

    We have now done I think 5 serious bench press sessions - here's two I wrote down earlier...

    Prop Cyril update.  After three chest workouts, starting with bench, he is now 12 reps at 100 then 8 reps at 110kg then 10 at 100kg again, while I am left in the dust with 10, 2 (4 negatives) and 6...  One word, bastard.

    My training poartner Cyril, after 4 chest workouts is now back up to 120kg presses, 6.  he then follows that as we work back down with a set of ten at 110, and then 10 at 100, or was it 12 - I think it was 12 atually.  Warm up sets, 10/60 and 10/105.  Serious power in this man.  Serious size too - started two weeks ago at 145kg, now down to 140.[/quote]

    So without further afo, Props Cyrils log starts now.

    :nta Hell of a warmup there. I assume from the 47 that its press-to-failure?



  • yes, just go until you can't anymore.  Think he could have cracked 50, as me above him spotting, once he hit the 47 said "50", meaning "go for fifty",  PC thought he had hit 50.  SO next week, as I always press first, I will be first past the 50 barrier  :coolsmiley:  best I have ever done is 68, first time PC has started doing the mad high reps stuff.  My chest feels like armour plating today.  Pity the rest of my body looks like a half set jelly...

    All sets were to failure, a good fun little mess around - considering PC is still feeling a little under the weather!



  • :nat Feel the need to drag a couple of guys from the club down to the gym for some spotting help now. Was doing 110 x 5 at my peak (as a lusty 19yo). Always believed you should be able to press your own body weight...

  • [b]TUESDAY 24th July

    Got 2 gym 5mins late & wat did i see Bartman cheating on me with the gym owna. :evil:
    They were havn a great time doing squats. So i did a20 min row,then 3x8 chins
    and sum pulldowns, then went home.Bart did assist me with the chins.Just getting ready to watch
    the netball now.



  • mate, it was NOT a great time - squatting hurts, but loving getting back into big weights there, downheartening though struggling through 8x140 kg squats when we used to crank out 200kg squats - but it'll come - when your knee gets right soft cock...Â



  • Bart you git, whinging about 140kg lifts that some of us look at whistfully!



  • lol, well think of a lift that is about 2 3rds of what you could lift, and that is all you can do - very sucky motor!!  Mind you, I was probably 15kg heavier when we were lifting those weights, and PC about 15 lighter!



  • It's ALIVE !!!!!!

    Hey Prop Cyril, you have finally surfaced so howzabout a race to lose 10kg ? I'm still struggling after 4 to5 weeks to lose and maintain 2 kilos off so I badly need the motivation a comp would provide. What do you say ?

    Hey Cyril/Bartman. How much weight are you guys putting on your belt or feet when you are doing your dips ?



  • Prop Cyril just starting to get to full reps, me too lazy to put the weight on, so just going with slooow reps.

    Yep, that works a treat doesn't it ? arms turn to jelly fairly quick the slower you go. I just thought from the weights you guys were benching you'd be putting a couple of plates on your dips ?!?!Â



  • just too lazy to really, probably should though, and now that you have remineded me, I'll do it next week!!
