Its definitely my worst lift too mate, I was stuck at 40Kg/45Kg for months :( it was because I was wasting shoulder time on stupid side raises instead of pressing more often ahha

Your OHP is really solid Ross, sometimes I think you underestimate the progress that you are making.

Great stuff man.

Haha, well I can join you on the rubbish squats!

Good to hear that your knee is good. How did your weekend go, how's that tiny little bat doing?

I'm really hoping to pack on a bit of mass, I'm living at home at the moment and saving to get a decent place with the misses. So whilst I can afford to eat like a goddam champ I'll take advantage of the situation!
My training won't be that much different, will do 3x5 and add a couple of higher rep sets at the end!

Deadlifts, with deads I'll stick to 2x5
Warm ups. And then..
110Kg x 5 reps
110Kg x 5 reps
60Kg x 12 reps
80Kg x 12 reps

I need to get rid of this pencil neck!
Shrugs!!
20Kg x 15 reps
30Kg x 15 reps
40Kg x 15 reps
40Kg x 15 reps
Drop set to 30Kg x 15 reps fuuuuck I feel like I'm on fire :o


Overhead press
42.5Kg x 5 reps
42.5Kg x 5 reps
42.5Kg x 5 reps
30Kg x 12 reps
35Kg x 12 reps

Hey james! :) the little bat is doing great! We actually put him back to the wild, we found the maternity roost where he must have fallen, he's able to fly a little now too so he should be fine :) had a big rescue today man it was nuts I had to climb inside of a curtain on a ladder to get a trapped bat hahaha

Awesome Ross I'm sure you'll be all beefed up within a few months if you eat enough . For me carbs really do the trick . All the best .
What I did with strong lifts was to add 2x10 of an accessory for higher reps .
Like Bent over rear lateral raise , some dbell flyes , light arm work and so on maybe u can try that as well .
