    PV: Well it is either carry the bar loaded or make several trips.

    Pickle: I'm chomping at the bit too. Though I don't want to put the horse before the cart.

    Just a quick update. I've been slightly heavier and I noticed I need new pants (button does up, zip doesn't like me). So I decided to measure this morning.

    Height: 182cm
    Weight: 90kg (dry morning weight)
    Arms: L 43.5cm R 43cm (1cm gain, they were both +45cm pumped the other night)
    Legs: 69cm (added 2cm)
    Lower thigh: 46cm (good size added to VMO)
    Hips: 99cm (been this for ages)
    Chest: ? (roughly 110cm, but didn't measure)
    Waist: 84-85cm (want this down at 82cm)
    Calf: 42cm (this varies depending on whether seated or standing measure)
    Forearms haven't changed.

    Ok bench was only average tonight. 5 reps just seemed as much as I was going to get, even though I felt like 7-8 was do-able. Long work day again, so probably set back a little by that. The week off will probably see week 3 of this cycle go through the roof!!!


    Bench
    60kg x5
    80kg x5

    95kg x3
    107.5kg x3
    120kg x5 - was aiming for 8, banged 5th into the j-hooks and called it a day (form was just going to get sloppy)

    Thick bar DB row
    47kg x20 2 sets

    Floor press
    110kg x10 2 sets - I've never been pinned by a floor press before, 10th rep did it to me!

    Pullups
    20kg x6
    20kg x4 2 sets
    20kg x3

    DB bicep curls
    22kg x6 2 sets

    Plate OH one arm tricep ext
    10kg x15 - held as a plate pinch

    The reason for the reps is that on 5/3/1 I'm doing it as an accessory and the goal is to hit higher reps. So I'm trying to keep most of my accessories above 10 reps when possible. I have done the heavier floor presses in the past, but I'm thinking that doing something reasonably heavy (I want around 115-120kg for 10-15) will help with my lockout, my triceps (size and strength) and be a good additive to my bench.

    Plus I felt I was being a pussy with some of my accessories. I'd hit a weight for 4 reps and think that I was done, then add weight to the bar and still hit 4. I added 20kg to my dips in a week just by pulling my finger out. 5/3/1 has really shown me that the reason I sucked at reps higher than 5 was that I just gave up, now I'm deadlifting weights for 10 reps that I only ever did for doubles!!!

    My PB is about a decade old and was set when I weighed 75kg. 140kg x3

    Half the problem has been that I injured my shoulder and then didn't train bench for a year. So then I ended up with all of these imbalances that have meant I'd get an impinged shoulder whenever I hit about 120kg. I finally got everything working for me last year and my bench has been getting better since I've been able to seriously train it.

    Based on the calcs I've had a max of this or there-abouts for a couple of months. I want to blast that PB sometime this year, I want a 150kg bench!

    Week off for easter and my friend's wedding. Then I had a work trip so a couple of gym sessions for a change. Met a local BBer, Jase, nice guy, apparently looking at nationals. He is one big MFer!!!! At least 188cm maybe more like 190cm, would have to weigh 120-130kg (didn't ask). Either way he was doing a light squat day and did reps with my max after I had finished with the rack.

    The two sessions:

    ATG squat
    60kg x5
    100kg x5

    120kg x5
    135kg x3
    150kg x5 - not happy. Everything felt about 5kg heavier than I'm used to. So either I messed up with the weights I put on the bar, the weights there were heavier (20.5kg instead of 20kg) or my plates at home are 19.5kg instead of 20kg. I'd say a combo of the last two (as a couple of my plates are worn).

    SLDL
    100kg x12
    100kg x8
    100kg x5

    Single leg Leg press #1
    4 plates x5
    2 plates x10 2 sets - this is the first heavy leg press I have used, absolute killer.

    Leg press #2 calf raise
    8 plates x15 3 sets - this was the standard leg press I'm used to. Easily can chuck 4 plates per side on and just rep it out. This one had a bar for calves on it which worked well. It was also the more used leg press due to the ego dent the other one caused.

    Incline situps
    BW x whatever - just repped out 2 sets


    Session 2

    Standing OHP
    30kg x5
    40kg x5

    52.5kg x5
    57.5kg x3
    65kg x7 - not sure on the rep count, either 6 or 7. I was happy with it either way.

    Behind the neck jerk - raised some looks
    65kg x8 2 sets

    Pullups
    25kg x8
    25kg x6 2 sets
    25kg x4

    Supine Tbar row
    20kg x12 3 sets - once again a heavy machine, I was going to use double the amount and aim to rep out. Apparently a few of the machines there are heavier than most expect (according to the guy I spoke to).

    Dips
    35kg x10
    35kg x7

    Preacher curl - not sure of bar weight, either 5kg or 10kg, assuming 5kg.
    35kg x8 2 sets

    Rope tricep pushdowns
    50kg x15 2 sets

    Pronated wrist curls
    20kg x10 2 sets

    supersetted with

    Supinated wrist curls
    30kg x12 2 sets

    Soundtrack:

    PV: slight improvement. Hard to tell as I can't remember how many reps I did. My calculated max is ~85kg, which is 15kg better than when I started 5/3/1.

    Pickle: if we want to look at how much bigger the guy was then I have no problem being out lifted by him. Plus he squatted really well, none of this half rep BS.

    Freako: yes wrist curls. My forearms (and waist) haven't gotten any bigger while my other girths have. I can't manage wrist roller or other forearm work at the moment due to my wrist issue. These don't seem to be a problem as long as the reps are high.

    Oh and I spotted a mistake: the Tbar rows should be prone, not supine. It would be interesting to do a supine row.......

    Also I've tried to find some photos of Jase competing but no luck. I could see him dominating the stage, especially if he gets a bit bigger so he is on stage as big as his current off season.

    Ronnie is coming back. Of course it is Ronnie Lite not Ronnie Original. *sigh*


    Deadlifted tonight. Felt like I needed a lay down and a deep tissue massage rather than lift. Been suffering DOMS all week, which I put down to the crappy diet and sleep while I was on the road. Going to get a sports massage this week coming.

    DB snatches
    22kg x5 2 sets

    Deadlift
    60kg x5
    100kg x5
    120kg x3

    142.5kg x5
    160kg x3 - did these all overhand grip easily, which is a little PB.
    180kg x7 - happy with this, it wasn't that long ago I pulled 180kg for the first time.

    SL hammy curl
    20kg x15 2 sets

    supersetted with

    SL step up
    20kg x20 2 sets

    Soundtrack:



    Can't wait for the movie!!!

    Good effort on the deads dude. The thought of 7 reps made me kinda nauseous.
