    Rob: try getting a couple of 20kg flat plates and place them on the ground, then do single leg calf raises with a dumbbell. You can set up near an upright support or a wall for balance.

    Jono: Thanks dude. I was pretty happy with those squats. Working off of Wendler's calculator I've added 22kg to my squat in two cycles of 5/3/1. Reality I've probably added about 10-15kg.

    Thanks. I know that one, pretty good.


    Strong overhead presses, especially the jerk.


    Long, long wait...

    Any extra weight lifted is a gain Timbo, at least that's what I tell myself.

    OHP doesent look bad at all. real nice pullups and pushups as well there!


    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.

    Jono: They were really quite tough too.

    Rob: I've added a pretty decent amount to my overhead press out of these two 5/3/1 cycles.

    Ben: Yep. But I still like knowing that I haven't just made a false leap up in weight.

    Bulky: My back is feeling those pullups today. I just kept doing sets, was almost going to do another set!!

    Ok deadlifts today. Trained late, so no chance of C&J's.

    Deadlifts
    60kg x5
    100kg x5
    120kg x5

    137.5kg x5
    157.5kg x3
    175kg x6 - happy with this, felt good and could have pulled one more at a grind (but I don't want to grind any).

    Step-ups
    10kg x15 3 sets

    Single leg leg curls
    16.5kg x15 3 sets

    Soundtrack:

    Nice deads

    I'm curious about your home setup, though. Are you deadlifting with bumper plates or are you deadlifting on matting or both?

    ^^ I've got standard Olympic sized plates that have rubber edges. I've then got some 1-1.5cm matting that is like a rubber foam (cheap stuff) over bricks.

    For snatches and C&J what I have is some concrete pavers (50x50cm) that I've put on a sand pad (shed and pool used to be there). So I pull on the pavers and drop into the sand.

    It is gradually ruining my plates, and probably the bar as well, but I'm not that fussed. I've been pricing a bumper set and fitting out a complete home gym setup and including a fantastic 5-55kg dumbbell rack and set I could have everything for <$10,000. Only thing is I don't have anywhere to put it all. So that is all on hold until we buy a place to live in. The wife is keen on having a home gym setup as well, so it will happen.

    I ideally want to get a couple of bars for my set-up. A standard, thick bar and possibly a safety squat bar. You just have a single one?

    ^^ I've got my olympic bar and a standard bar.

    I would like to get a couple of other bars, but I don't know that I'd use them enough to justify the cost.

    Benching today sucked. Still don't seem to have added anything to the lift. Strong off the chest, but it was the lockout that was shit. So my triceps continue to be aweful.

    Bench
    60kg x5
    80kg x5
    90kg x3

    97.5kg x5
    112kg x3
    125kg x3 - couldn't lock out the 4th rep. Had plenty more off the chest.

    DB bench
    40kg x10 2 sets

    Thick bar DB row
    45kg x20 2 sets

    Close grip lockouts
    80kg x8 - whole heap of suck, this was meant to be 12-15 reps
    60kg x12

    Chinups
    BW x12 2 sets

    Soundtrack:

    I share your pain about the benching tim. hold me tight! haha, we are exactly the same in the bench. I also have trouble with the lockout. rest of the session looks great though, solid db work!

    Try another try exercise for assistance?

    Swap to CG Press for your main lift for a couple of cycles?

    Yeh I'm thinking that I'll get rid of DB benches and do floor presses.

    I did have dips, but they were not really doing much. I probably needed to just load them heavier and bang reps like I started doing with DB rows. Amazing how easy it is to put the brakes on your lifting.
