I'm embarrassed to say how much those last three sets wrecked me, my legs were shaking and I really had to dig deep to make it to five ~ I was done after three reps.

Feel okay today though thankfully.

BW: 130
40mins

WG DIPS

15

STANDING OHP
BAR x 10
66 x 8
88 x 6

PAUSED BENCH
BAR x 10
66 x 10

110 x 10

** Last set of bench was quite tough from around rep 8, possibly because I deliberately pre-exhausted the chest a little.

MONDAY 30th SEPTEMBER

PRE-WO:

Image

Image

SQUATS: Focusing on technique ~ good depth and knees out
BW: 130
50mins

SQUATS
BAR x 10
88 x 5
132 x 5
154 x 5
176 x 2
176 x 2

GM's
66 x 12
77 x 12

OBLIQUES: BROOMSTICK TWISTS
3 x 1min

** A little frustrating as the 176 felt heavy, and I've hit well over 300 in training before. I guess it's just a case of being patient and building them back up again and hitting them regularly.

Legs were a little tired and sore tonight, so decided to bench instead of deadlift. Seeing as I had no idea where my current 1RM is at I thought I'd give it a nudge.

Nailed 188 without any issues, quite happy with that (231 is the NZ record I'm working towards). It's 10.50pm now so I'll write the session up in the morning.

I got my results back from my cardiologist a couple of days ago and they're pretty good overall, can't really ask for much more than that. I have been given the all-clear to train as I was before which is awesome, I just have to go back for one last ECG in a couple of weeks time to rule out any structural heart disease. I have been told that's probably unlikely :)

Just back from a quick but solid session, short on time so focused on deficit DL's. Will write up later tonight, getting ready for our youngest daughter's 5th Birthday party this afternoon; have around 40 people coming so will be full on!

Hey MF. I just wanted to stop in and say Hi. Even though I just became active in the forums, I've been following your journal for months. You're a real inspiration to me, and I'm glad to see you're doing well. Keep up the awesome work!

Great day, she had such a good time. The adults were happy as well because the replay of the All Blacks Vs South Africa match was on so we watched that while the kids all played outside...

Image

They did all come back in to watch the haka though, they're proud kiwis already !! :lol:

My rhomboids and upper traps are pretty sore from the weekend deadlifts. Will train tonight but thinking I might hold off on the bench for a day or two until the DOMS ease a little.
