5no leg presses today, im going to do them on bench days so i can save my legs for deadlifts
di amazingly better on oh press, will definitely own it next week
deadlifts were no good, only managed one, ill get there, may need a deload as 105kg were sketchy towards the last few reps, still not going to give up.

Don't give up with the deads, Rome wasn't built in a day mate.

Good effort all round in here, you are making some really good progress by the looks of things MF.

day 58

SQUATS!!! fuck yeah
1x8x20
1x5x40
1x2x60
5x5x77.5kg

overhead press
1x8x10
1x5x20
1x2x30
2/3/3/3/3x37.5kg

deadlift
1x8x40
1x5x60
1x2x85
1x4x110


so ive decided as i only have 4 weeks left of strong lifts im gonna focus on that and that alone.

squats are back, fuck yeah, not a single bit of pain or discomfort, felt really strong. and considering my pr of 80kg was back at 7th of march ive not lost any strength and actually felt stronger.

oh press was a bust though, i have had a permanent stitch on my left side just under my ribs for about three days that made me struggle.

and i only just failed on my last rep of deads, pissed me off so god damn much.

Awesome squat and bench bro!
By calculations that's a deadlift one rep max of 120Kg
Squat one rep max of 87.5kg
And a bench one rep max of 60Kg
Really good stuff man :) you would do well on the strength table!
How was your weekend dude? Also awesome mileage on your bike, I don't think I'll be able to handle cycling if I'm squatting 3 times a week baha
