    Xiva: thanks dude.

    Bulky: the high reps killed me and my lower back.

    Skippy: 210kg is on the cards very soon.

    Philo: cheers dude.

    Pickle: well I was kinda expecting for more energy, especially on the bench day. I was really looking forward to a PB and essentially failed on a weight I had pin pressed the week before.

    Another session this evening as I won't get another chance this week by the look (stupid category 2 incident). I'll be on the road. My lockout sucked so I've moved over to floor presses for some heavy work.

    Floor press
    60kg x5
    100kg x5
    120kg x5
    122.5kg x3
    125kg x3

    Thick bar DB row
    22kg x5
    43kg x5
    50kg x5
    55kg x5x2

    Chinup
    12
    8

    Dip
    15
    12

    Lateral raise
    12kg x10
    12kg x10

    Miami: cheers dude. I need to get my triceps working so I can lock out a decent bench.

    PV: I can smell PB's!!!


    Cardio this evening. Hot muggy day, and I think I have a minor bout of gastro (resting HR this evening of 120).

    So 25mins on the rower with 10mins of HIIT felt like I had just hiked the Himalayas.

    What do you think about the Thick bar?

    - I've been considering to buy some fat gripz to get the same effect. Is it worth it?

    I just made my own out of metal pipe. I do like thick bars and I actually prefer them for rows. For the cost of zero you can make your own to suit your needs (this assumes you have tools laying around). I made my handles using some rope, a piece of 2.5" galvanised steel pipe (scrounged), a hacksaw and a drill.

    The other one was a two part job. It is an old piece of iron or steel water pipe. It was rusty, but rusty in that old heavy duty way (outside corroded, inside solid as a rock) so I sanded it down a bit. I then drilled a hole for a bolt to go through. This bolt was to tie a chain with plates loaded on it. The chain was once again scrounged and attached to a bottom plate so the chain would go through the centre hole but I wouldn't have to tie anything off. The bottom plate was a 2" square piece of iron I scrounged from an old harvester blade. This stuff is rock solid. I cut the end of one chain loop, then drilled two holes to match in the iron (this actually distroyed two drill bits it was that solid) and then welded the chain in place.

    Kurt: The goal is stronger Aussies so that we can continue to kick ass I think we both need to be pulling 220-230kg in the next year or so.

    Anabolicus: I squat this arvo so it might be my next post.

    Ben: I did the deads expecting to pull 200kg, but kept it in the tank. If I can pull well before Xmas I'll know that the hammys are all better again (if anything improved).

    I think 230 could very well be a possibility :gaysign:

    ^^ It is actually quite easy to do. Do a search for some of the homemade equipment how-to's and you'll see what is involved.


    Short session this evening. I got to my first work set of squats and just didn't feel right. So just did some other stuff since I was warmed up anyway. I'd say the gastro is still playing with me a bit.

    ATG squat
    60kg x5
    100kg x2x2
    120kg x2x2
    140kg x1
    150kg x1

    Split squat
    100kg x3
    105kg x3
    110kg x3
    115kg x2 PB I think.

    Zercher squat
    50kg x12

    Soundtrack:
