Yeah it's a great atmosphere for lifting! The belts are awesome, I had one for over a year and a half before I started working there and no signs of wear. They last! I have no discount codes unfortunately, I'm just hired muscle :D


Friday 15th June 2012
Bodyweight = 84.5kg

Log (steel) I should mention - so far with log it's just the 1 clean. So if I say 3 reps it's 1 clean then 3 presses.
2x3x60kg
2x3x62.5kg

Deadlift
1x5x150kg (no belt)
1x5x170kg (belt)

Yoke 10m
200kg 7:09s
220kg 9:31s
220kg 9:13s

Circus Dumbbell
31kg, 10 reps in 75s (all right hand and cleaned every rep)
31kg, 1 clean and press, then clean then 5 presses, all with left hand
Then quite a few fails with 42kg on the right hand

Atlas stones
2x80kg
1x120kg, Fx120kg, 1x120kg
Few fails with 130kg (we're suspecting the 120kg is actually lighter than 120kg. Think I cemented this when I couldn't even budge 130kg)


Log - weight felt easier today which is good. Last set I tried doing my breathing at the top after the 1st rep, felt much better - easier to stay tight at the bottom.
Deadlift - First time pulling conventional from the floor with a decent weight in a while. Felt heavier than 170kg with a belt should've felt, squatting down to much because of fear of rounding my back and falling into old habits.
Yoke - Felt alright, some runs were better than others. 220kg didn't have the same crushing effect when walking as the 115kg farmers did, so there's more there.
Circus DB - 31kg felt much easier on both arms. A couple of the 42kg fails were close.
Atlas stones - Definite improvement. The 2nd rep with '120'kg came up easy enough, I just didn't lift it high enough before moving forward. First rep I nearly jammed my fingers lol.

Feel fucked now.

1x1x130kg
1x3x145kg

Chins
9 (+15kg dipping belt)
9

Front squats (no belt)
1x10x90kg

Push Press
1x10x60kg

Strict Press
1x3x50kg
1x2x57.5kg
1x2x67.5kg (+ failed 3rd)



Wed 20th June 2012

Cambered Bar Squats (no belt)
1x5x100kg
1x3x122.5kg
1x1x145kg

Deadlift
1x5x150kg (no belt)

Gunz with log.



Squats all week have been PB's in one way or another. Beltless triple, front squat high rep and not done much cambered bar so everytime I go heavy it's a PB. Deadlifts feeling easy, didn't setup 2nd rep properly will fix for next time.

Bodyweight = 85.7kg

Axle
45kg clean + 5 press
55kg clean + 5 press
65kg clean + 3 press
70kg clean + 1 press
75kg clean + 1 press
80kg clean + 1 press (last 2 were PB's)

Farmers walks
115kg each hand, about 6m, grip gave. then finished the last 4m. Didn't prepare properly, didn't setup properly enough or use chalk. Underestimated it.

Prowler
Loaded it with 42.5kg and done multiple runs. I'd heard a lot of bad things about the prowler and it lives upto it, it's fucking horrible.

Then done some grip holds with 55kg farmers with the fat grips. Managed 35 seconds at the end.

Atlas Stones
80kg for height. See video. Nearly died around 6:00.



That's an overhead PB with the axle. :)

Cheers mate :D I love all the strongman stuff

Mon 25th June 2012
Bodyweight = 85.2kg

Squat (no belt)
1x2x120kg
1x1x140kg
1x2x152.5kg (most I'd done beltless before this was a single at 150kg, so PB)

Push Press
1x7x65kg (was nearly 8 but lost my balance on the last)

Strict Press
1x1x60kg
1x1x65kg

Barbell rows
1x5x70kg
1x5x75kg
1x5x80kg



Extremely happy with squats. Been a while since I've had a grinder of a rep. My pressing is looking much better on this workout. It looks like I'm starting to get into a good position overhead. Barbell rows my hamstrings were tight as fuck, haven't stretched properly in way over a week so done some foam rolling/stretching when I was home.

Cheers :D

Friday 29th June 2012
Bodyweight = 85.3kg

Log
60kg - clean & 3 press
65kg - clean & 3 press
65kg - 7x clean&press in 75 seconds

Yoke
200kg, 12m, 9.78 seconds
220kg, 12m, 8.84 seconds (quicker pickup, beat my time for 10m)

Farmers walk
75kg each hand, 40m (4 x 10m), 33.09 seconds

Fucked about with the new dog sled.

Stones
Not super high, about chest height or just under.
Had a 3-way rep off until we couldn't do anymore, so whilst the other 2 guys are lifting you get a chance to recover.
13 reps with 120kg stone. I have no idea how the fuck I managed this. After about 3 reps I thought I was nearing my limit. Just kept going and going. Died.

Cheers guys ;D

Mon 2nd July 2012
Bodyweight = 85.1kg

Squats (no belt)
1x5x90kg
1x8x110kg

Push Press
1x5x50kg
1x3x60kg
1x7x70kg :D

Strict Press
1x3x62.5kg (failed this few weeks back, good to nail it)



Squats were effortless, even went for a short pause on the last rep. Huge improvement in my push press. Haven't benched in ages but at least my overhead is improving.
