I went in and did some overhead stuff because it had been a pretty long time since I had done any. I went around 7:30 pm, which was a nice change, especially since it's getting a bit cooler at night here.

Strict Press
12 x bar
6 x 40 kg
3 x 5 x 62.5 kg

Seated Dumbbell Press
3 x 6 x 30 kg

That's all. It was a pretty quick session. I'm sitting here drinking a carton of soy milk & eating some spinach, kale & rocket..

I almost missed that 190kg squat on the last page! Incredible work man

Do you follow any set routine for your working out, or do you just do reps/sets/weight as you feel?

Thanks chewy. I've been following a couple of Sheiko routines. Started with #29, then did #37, then tested my 1RM's and started #29 again, using those new 1RM's as the starting weights.

Here's an excel spreadsheet if anyone's interested -

This wasn't the plan, but just felt like going a bit heavier. The bench routine kind of frustrates me.

Hey congrats on the 100 kg benching. I know your PR is 110 kg last month, but still.

Do you figure out your 1RM any particular way before you actually do it? Like any math formula? Or do you just put weight on the bar and try it out? Do you use a spotter when you do this?

Hey thanks Rob.

With my 1RM attempts I don't use any set percentages for warm-ups, but if I was going to try a 200 kg squat, I might do this -

5 x 60
3 x 90
2 x 120
1 x 140
1 x 170
1 x 200

Sometimes I use a spotter for bench press, but normally just count on the safety bars on the power rack.

Just went in for a quick workout today, to do what will probably be my only bodybuilding style workout for the year.. and even then, there wasn't much to it. Just did some shoulder stuff.

Seated Dumbbell Press
8 x 20 kg
3 x 6 x 32.5 kg

Dumbbell Arnold Press
3 x 8 x 25 kg

Then did a few clean and jerks with 60 kg..

So that was it.. I'll probably do deadlifts some time on the weekend.

I trained tonight at about 7:30, which was a nice change. I normally go in the mornings but I think I'm going to start going around 7:30 more often because it's a lot quieter and cooler inside the gym with winter coming up pretty soon.

Squat
5 x 60 kg
5 x 95 kg
4 x 115 kg
3 x 132.5 kg
6 x 3 x 152.5 kg

Bench
5 x 60 kg
3 x 80 kg
2 x 90 kg
3 x 3 x 100 kg
2 x 10 x 60 kg
