1RM's



  • Push press yesterday 5x 8 with the last one meant to be AMRAP. Didn't AMRAP it as arms/shoulders were fucked from the day before probably could have done 20 anyway and weight was based off strict press.

    Snatch grip deadlifts 4x8 then 1x18 @97kg then bench 4x8 @ 84kg and some light front squats.

    Body is fucking tired.



  • Weekend off then?

    I did heavy deads this morning and worked up to decent doubles which I hadnt done for a while. Feeling pretty drained!



  • Yup going to watch the rugby tonight then gorge myself in a leather recliner at the New Star Wars movie.

    See how the body holds up for pick up b ball tomorrow!



  • Weekend off (apart from basketball). Today is a deload week. Was 3x2 at 80% of 1rm with pause at the bottom squats so about 120kg plus some warm up sets. Snatach grip high pulls and good mornings. Meant to do split squats but I don't have exchanged for box jumps.

    Feeling good after doing 120 as 140 was my 1RM just over 4 weeks ago. 120 Felt really easy.



  • Start of week 6 of 12 week block.
    Last week was a bit of a deload (3x2's on new predicted 1RM's)

    Previous 1RMs were 105kg bench, 140kg squat, 170kg dead. We did snatch grip deads so haven't changed predicted.

    Technique is coming along and becoming a bit more natural which is helping with the lifts.

    Last night squats : 2sets of 1 with 2 second pause @120kg then 5x5 @120kg. Good depth, no belt or anything.
    Did some Ecc deads, box jumps (i do instead of bulgerian split squats), snatch grip high pulls

    This morning: 5x5 Bench with a pause on the first rep of each set @100kg then 105kg for my last set which was my previous 1RM.
    Dips,pullups (banded for me) and was a couple of other exercises I ran out of time with.



  • Strict press: 4x5 @60kg 1x5 @65kg
    Front Squats (not main squat for the week): 3x5 @60 1x5@70kg
    Bicep curls: 3x20kg DB (missed it on tuesdays workout
    Muscle Snatch: 4x6 @40kg
    Kneeling (one knee on the ground) single arm shoulder press DB: 3x10 @15kg (left arm is shit house).
    Some shoulder stability exercises and core to finish.

    Deads tomorrow.



  • 5x5 deads @136 not an issue
    bench 4x10 @76kg
    bent over rows 4x8
    closed grip bench 4x8 @73
    Found all pretty easy. Time to raise above the % next week i reckon



  • 5 sets of 4 squats@85% . Still working on getting my cues right under heavier weight. did 130kg previous 1rm is 140kg
    Also did few slow Deadlifts
    box jumps
    snatch high pulls



  • 5x4 Bench @105kg which was my 1rm 6 weeks ago. Which is exciting.
    Also did some dips and pulls ups but didn't do a full workout as played 2 games of basketball last night as well.

    Nothing beats repping a weight you used to bust a blood vessel on just to lift once. Well done fella!
