    ^^ I have done as much as 0.8xBW dips, but I think there is a reference to Matt K there that I need to take heed of for dips.

    When I was doing dips I was hitting 15 reps, but it was the same weight I was using for chins (for convenience). Reality is that it was far too light to be usefull. I found with the DB rows that one week I was doing 5 sets of 40kg for a total of 60 reps. The next week I just decided to see how many I could get in one set. Now I'm hitting sets of 20 with 45kg! I was just limiting myself in order to hit the set numbers rather than pushing out what was possible.

    Ok plan is: OHP day will have dips back in with 30-40kg added, aim for +10 reps. Bench day will have floor presses with the aim for 10-15 reps (100kg should be about right for that). Although I do find it hard to hit high reps when fatigued.

    ^^ Don't know. I had to cut my step-ups short last week with my knee suddenly giving me grief. I think I may have loosened some scar tissue, as my knee is clicking a fair bit at the moment.

    As for my lower back and back in general, I haven't been sleeping comfortably. I think I need to hit some stretching more rigorously, get to bed earlier and spend less time sitting down at the computer.

    AC/DC tomorrow so I'll spend plenty of time jumping around. My sister called last night to tell me she had just heard them come on stage. She lives two suburbs away from the arena!!!!!!!!!

    Standing OHP
    20kg x10
    27.5 x5
    35kg x5
    42.5kg x5 - barely felt like a workout

    Behind the neck jerk
    42.5kg x10 3 sets

    Pullups
    20kg x8 3 sets - I will now just tie some weight and get as many reps in 5 sets as I can.

    Dips
    30kg x12 2 sets - proving I was being lame before

    Wrist curls
    20kg x15 2 sets pronated
    20kg x20 2 sets supinated

    You will JIZZ your fucking pants to AC/DC captain. Nice to see some heavier dipping in this log.


    That's a great plan, Walter. That's fuckin' ingenious, if I understand it correctly. It's a Swiss fuckin' watch.

    nice pullups and dips tim looks great.


    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.

    nice work on the dips!

    Elbows from obtuse angle to acute, I take it?


    slept with faith and found a corpse in my arms on awakening; I drank and danced all night with doubt and found her a virgin in the morning.

    Pickle: Yes I am awesome. Expect 110kg in the next few weeks.

    lifterdead: stop being ambiguous and precise!

    I use a proper ROM on dips, although I would like better dip bars than two bars in the power rack. A proper dip station would be ideal.

    First day of cycle 3 of 5/3/1....... and it sucked.

    Just didn't seem to have any balance and strength today. I have been busy and had a long work day, but I didn't feel that off until I got to my first snatch set. Just didn't feel right at all. I broke my lifting platform with my third set, just didn't get under the weight and lost my balance.

    Warmups

    Snatch
    20kg x5
    40kg x5
    60kg x2 2 sets
    70kg x1 x1 - first set dropped the second rep.

    Squat
    70kg x5
    90kg x5

    102.5kg x5
    120kg x5
    135kg x5 - whole heap of fail on this. 5 really felt like a challenge this evening, yet I really should have gotten 8.

    Front squat
    70kg x10 2 sets - these felt ok, but only did 2 sets due to the previous fail exercises

    supersetted with

    GM's
    70kg x12 2 sets

    Single leg standing calf raise
    32kg x8 2 sets - first time I have done these on a step in over a month due to my foot problem. Seemed fine this evening, although foot is still stiff most mornings.

    Soundtrack:



    The video they had for this at the concert was fantastic.
