Realistically? No I don't . But I'm going to try my damned hardest. How would you advise benching when you know your gonna hit failure if you've no chance of a spotter? Squat rack? Yeah it's all good, weekend off soon:) how's things with you?

Wrong answer! :p you'll do fine man! But doing it in the squat rack is definitely a good idea if you don't have a spotter, it'll make you more confident and more willing to try if you know there's no chance you'll get your neck crushed baha.
Ahh lucky you man enjoy your weekend! All good hear man no training now until monday but may throw in some cardio for fun 8)

01/02
day 24

squats
57.5kg
press
25kg
deadlift
95kg

i think ive cracked it, press was finally fun, and i really powered that weight up, really suprised my self with deads, was a battle but did it, my grip started to fail on the last two reps, so that needs addressing.

and sensai ross, forgive me for doubting you and myself :)

not a single twinge in my knee either so a pretty damn good day, apart from the huge bruise growing just above my right knee from deads hahaha

Mondays bench day, may have a Mate coming who can spot me. to be honest it was only the grip in my right hand, I'm not surprised as im left handed, I think i may need to use more palm than finger when gripping.

Good work! Nearly at a 100kg deadlift, that's pretty solid.

How many reps did you get with the 95?

04/02
day 25

squats
60kg
bench
-
barbell row
45kg
5-4-3-5-5

was in serious beast mode with squats, dont know if its because i had a good stretch before or what but i sailed through, was amazing, but after last bench session i started to feel a pinch in my right shoulder and it came back today when i was benching the empty bar, i think i over pushed my self last time and ive annoyed my rotator cuff. so i didnt want to tempt fate so im leaving the bench be for a week or so whilst i strengthen my shoulders. rows were fine apart from i didnt manage to get contact between my abdomen and gar on a couple of reps, so let my ego take the hit instead of my form.

day 27

2

squats were good, presses were really good, i think ive finally got my form sorted and im now seeing the attraction. only managed 2 reps on deads, no particular reason was just not my day, bring on next time.

What kind of grip are using for the deads mate?? I and most others would agree that mixed grip will allow you to lift considerably more :) hope everythings good your end duder!
