Good work as always mate, I'm looking forward to making up a few videos again. I think they really add something to a journal.

Thought you might be interested to hear that one of my mates got 4th place at the Bro's V Pro's PL'ing bash at Poundstones gym this weekend just gone. He pulled a crazy 405 for 25 reps, pretty insane as I've been following his training leading up to it and he certainly works his arse off. Poundstone reportedly pulled 850 for a strong single.

Hope you had a good weekend anyway, take care and keep up the solid training MF.

Yeah man, when I worked out at the weightlifting club/home I used to do the videos myself. But now that I workout at my new job my boss does the videos, it's great :D More or less get one every session.

That's some crazy pulling endurance/strength! I'm not a big fan of doing long sets of deadlifts myself. If I do more than 6 or 7 reps someone has to come in with an oxygen mask.

Hey mate. I thought I'd repost this in your jounal as you might find parts of interesting, just explaining my rationale for why adding in a light bench session ever now and then could be a good thing:

IMO, light bench days also help to open up the chest (opposite of the cumulative effect of heavier benching). I see this as beneficial in terms of strength/muscle development because muscle strength has a direct correlation with the cross directional size of the muscle. Light stretching/benching will help to open up the pectoralis major as well as offering needed relief on the tendons. While your bench continues to increase, the natural increases in muscle mass occur but your tendons progress at a much slower rate; this can become problematic as the vulnerability of the tendons become a higher risk factor due to the misalignment of collagen fibrils. Tendons become completely secondary to muscles in terms of strength and I can see how some physio's today think that this 'light benching' work offers some conditioning to the tendons that it otherwise wouldn't get, allowing for a little more 'proportionate' growth as well as possibly slightly reducing injury risk.

Have a great weekend, you training?

Hey Forklift! That's some good pulling, shame about the grip giving - definitely way more there. I used to speed bench but not benching much at all just now so just taking what I can get! I gots crazy DOMs from Wednesday in the pecs but feeling better today.

Fri 7th July 2012
Bodyweight = 85.7kg

Log
5x50kg
3x60kg
1x65kg
3x70kg (was only going to double it but felt really easy)
7x60kg

Farmers
12m, 95kg each hand
Run 1 - 8:43s
Run 2 - 7:41s
Run 3 - 7:88s

Yoke
40m (4x10m), 200kg, 55:08s

18" Deadlifts (belt)
1x3x190kg
1x3x210kg
1x3x230kg



Done 18" whilst everyone else done sled/circus DB/stones cause I missed it on Wednesday, wish I'd just went with the flow cause back feels a bit dodgy. Not terrible but I like to avoid it when possible. But anyway, decent numbers across the board. First time doing log at start of June, 70kg was an absolute 1RM and could only rep out 60kg for about 4. So big improvement there.

What's the difference between a push press and a strict press?

Push press you use leg drive, strict press you don't. At least that's how we distinguish between it :P

Bodyweight = 85.5kg

Bench Press
1x5x70kg
1x2x77.5kg
1x6x85kg

Wide grip Pullups
14, 5, 5

Busy as fuck at work today so went to the weightlifting club in Killie for a bench session with the powerlifters. New 6RM on Bench. Hopefully nail 100kg single soon :D

Thanks for the explanation.

Your bench should be higher than that, no? Your DL and squat numbers kick some serious punch mate.

It should be higher. I've trained it consistently with the other lifts with similar rep ranges but it just moves slower. Long arms as well = good deadlift, shiter bench. I'm just glad it's on the way up!

Thu 12th July 2012

Cambered bar squat (no belt)
1x5x100kg
1x3x125kg
1x1x150kg

Bench
2x8x70kg

pause reps-
1x1x80kg
1x1x87.5kg (equal pause PB, and it was easy as fuck)

Good to nail the cambered bar. Wasn't even going to work out today cause back was dodgy earlier in week.

What's that cambered bar like for squats?

I've never used one before.

When I squat normally I use a low bar position. Cambered bar is high bar so I keep my torso very upright. The bar can kind of swing a bit if you let it.
