    Skippy: I was working out my numbers just then and supposedly I've added some kilos to everything but my squat.

    Hot today and mowed the lawn before this session. Heart wasn't in it but I was really pleased with the deadlift as the form felt great, weight felt light (until rep 6) and I think I could pull a 2xBW deadlift for 8 now.

    Deadlift
    60kg x5
    100kg x3

    127.5kg x3
    145kg x3
    162.5kg x8

    Hanging leg raise
    BW x15 5 sets

    SL hammy curl
    15kg x10 5 sets
    This was a bit light, should have used 20kg.

    SL standing calf raise
    32kg x8
    37kg x8 3 sets

    Soundtrack:

    How did I miss Tim's marriage?

    a belated congrats. Nice squats, too.

    Congrats on the marriage Tim, sorry it's late.

    Nice to see your doing 5/3/1. Great deadlifting and those squats will come up, just keep pushing harder.

    Jono: Thankyou

    lifterdead: Thanks, we've been having a good marriage so far, the honeymoon should be terrific!

    Xiva: No rest pause. I don't like touch and go, don't want to end up lifting like Branch. Also rest pause allows me to reset my grip and back with each lift, although I try to keep the bar in the hands the entire set.

    Anabolicus: They have progressed a bit, hard to tell how much. I'm confidant I'm back to were I was before I tore my hammys this time last year.

    Lance: Congrats are never late at the first opportunity I'm thinking the squats are just me not having the G&D for higher reps. Deadlifts I had spent a month or so doing higher reps as a finisher for a month prior to 5/3/1, so I probably need similar for squats.

    Steve: Thanks dude. I think 2010 should be my best year yet, all the best for you too.

    Ben: I'm glad I manned up enough to actually do high rep deadlifts. I'm not far off a 2xBW or 180kg for 8 reps. That would be awesome to do in a commercial gym.


    Ok it has been stinking hot here for a couple of weeks now. We have had something like 8-9 days out of 14 that have been over 40°C, several of them like yesterday and the day before that were over 45°C.

    This just means that training becomes more of a dehydration event than actual training, which is counterproductive. But last night was the last night I'll have a chance to train before the honeymoon, so I waited until quite late in the evening for it to cool down. It was still 30°C when I started (and I think still that when I went to bed). It was just going to be a short session, but I completed the accessories as well.

    Warmups

    just complexes

    Bench
    20kg x??
    60kg x5
    80kg x3

    90kg x3
    102.5kg x3
    115kg x6 Thought I was good for 7-8 but on rep 6 I just felt unsteady towards lockout. I'd say I was just too dehydrated to push it out.

    Incline DB press
    32kg x10 5 sets

    Thick bar DB row
    40kg x10 5 sets

    Should have done some arm work, as my arms are lagging just a little since I gained a couple of kilos.

    Fuck those temperatures... but I spose thats what you get for living in Western Australia

    Good effort benching in the epic heat though! Not a bad soundtrack either.

    ^^ I was trying out some of Amorphis' back catalogue and was less than impressed. That album is very good though.

    It isn't just WA it is the wheatbelt. We don't cool down in the evening the way you do at the coast.

    Touch and go isn't the way to lift imo either.

    Good round today!

    nice benches.

    How much do you weigh?

    Kurt: And here I was thinking that Brisbane did have beaches due to the Bris-Vegas thing.

    Mike: I live to impress you

    Ben: the 30 degrees isn't as tough as the radiant heat from the hotter temps. All of the ground, walls, roof, rack are all still a lot hotter; draining!

    Mike: Cheers!

    Lifterdead: I'm not 100% sure on my weight as it has been hot here for the past fortnight. Drinking a lot of water and retaining a bit of it. I think I'm sitting at ~87-88kg, but I have weighed 89-90kg at times during this last fortnight.

    I'm off for a couple of weeks guys. May or may not be training, I'll see how I go. Train hard!
