    Technically we do have beaches... but they are some of the most godawful and pathetic excuses for beaches lol

    Its only an hour north or an hour south so some of the best beaches in Australia... so its not a big loss hehe

    wow, nice benching tim 115 for 6 is quite respectable. u beat me now anyway anyways, hope u have a good time, and c u in the log section again in awhile


    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate;
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Ben: Only one?? It's a honeymoon, it is all the time!!

    Kurt: Beaches are overrated in my book. Sand follows you home, especially in crevices you don't want it in, it is hot, the sun burns my fragile skin, it is often windy.......

    Bulky: Thanks dude, I'm now back!

    The cruise was great. They had a pretend gym on the boat, but in fairness the gym couldn't have freeweights due to the movement of the boat. It was hard enough running on the treadmill, let alone squatting with weight. I gained weight on the cruise, up to 92kg (today I was 90.5kg after losing some water weight).

    Also I officially hate the lat pulldown. Shit exercise and it was topped off by a lameo old guy that wanted to just do a quick set of 8. He proceeded to do 8 at one weight, then 8 at another, then 8 in the reversed position, then a final weight the other way around.

    So back at it for week 3 of 5/3/1, the first cycle of it and although it is week 3 I started it on the 15th Dec 2009.......

    Warmups

    Snatch
    20kg x5
    40kg x3
    60kg x2
    70kg x1 2 sets

    ATG squat
    70kg x5
    100kg x3

    112.5kg x5
    127.5kg x3
    142.5kg x6 - this was good and indicates a good gain on my squat

    GM
    62.5kg x12 5 sets

    Single leg calf raise
    32kg x8
    37kg x8
    42kg x8 2 sets

    Front squat
    80kg x5 - was close to tearing my shorts so stopped early on these, also lacked energy so didn't bother with any more sets.

    ^^ Yep deadlifts win.

    But unfortunately my bench sucked today. According to my reps this week I have gained at least 8kg on each of my lifts (15kg on my deadlift). But not my bench. Apparently it is exactly the same.

    Warmups

    Bench
    60kg x5
    80kg x3

    97.5kg x5
    110kg x3
    122.5kg x3 - 4th rep wouldn't go up (without form going out the window) and I was aiming for 6-8, 6 was realistic.

    DB Incline bench
    32kg x10 5 sets

    supersetted with

    Thick bar DB rows
    42.5kg x10 5 sets

    strong deads and good benches timbo, i just love how u can row the damn thick dumbell for so many reps/sets without ur grip giving out, must have some manly big rough hands

    On a serious note, i have been trying to improve my grip, and the dumbells at the gym im currently working out at go only up 2 40 kg, but after 20kg they handle get noticeably thicker. How thick is your thick bar? gonna ask at the gym how thick mine is ( no homo)

    Kurt: Yeh but it feels like a failure when everything else has improved and my bench is still the same.

    Actually I had a rude awakening at some of the gyms when it comes to dumbbells and grip. The dumbbells I use actually have either knurling or rust, so you can actually hold onto them. But at gyms I've noticed that the chrome bars are more slippery (as sweat and humidity really gets to them) and they have started to have virtually no knurling. This makes them very hard to handle without chalk or straps.

    My own thickbars are actually old pieces of pipe. The one I use for rows is just over 2" thick (standard bar is 1.25" I believe, so more like lifting an O bar collar) and the other I use is 2.5" thick. The thicker bars at gyms tend to be 1.5-1.75" thick I believe, and they generally tend to lack knurling. For pressing they are fine, but they assume you just rest them on your hands not actually grip and control them.

    Try using some chalk, liquid or powder, which will help immensely. Either that or find the non-chrome bars to use, they just don't get as slippery with use.

    Deadlift win.

    No worries about the bench though, there's always one lagging movement at any given time. And you probably expended a lot of energy while you were honeymooning.


    My log - read it f*ckers!

    I also had a lot of sex


    Got my belt and wraps in the mail this morning. Ordered them from Titan Australia. Minh was really good to deal with, so I can highly recommend ordering stuff from them.

    You are very right about the lack of knurling on the dumbells, they have the HS line of dumbells, which i dont particularly like, instead of the plates gettin bigger in diameter,they just get wider, so the 40kg's touch very easily, adn the handle is about 1.5 inch thick and no knurling, really hard to hold on too long, but it will greatly improve my grip.

    Jono: it will only improve your grip if you have chalk, as slippery does nothing.

    Mike: New PB's? I was joking on Facepage.

    Although I can state what I was working off of and what I should be working off of from my 5/3/1 (deload next week).

    Bench
    90% of 140kg
    Max still 140kg

    Squat
    90% of 163kg
    Max now 173kg

    Deadlift
    90% of 198kg
    Max now 208kg

    Military press
    90% of 70kg
    Max now 75kg

    The joke I made on Facepage was that I have just bought some knee and wrist wraps and a belt from Titan Australia (Titan were great to deal with and I can highly recommend Aussies to order from Minh). I was having a practice at wrapping my knee last night and was amazed at how much a light wrapping gave me, let alone if I did an X wrap or really stretched it tight. I can see how knee wraps could easily give you 20-40kg on your squat, maybe even your deadlift, without any trouble at all!

    seems as if 5/3/1 is working very well for u tim glad to see that. lifts look much improved over a short period of time. deadlift, squat and mp have all come up. as have been said dont sweat the bench. i have the same issue. my bench strenght is the hardest to bring up. we are pretty much equal in the bench too. so u just stay put until mine starts to move up


    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
