    PV: Thanks dude. I was especially happy given how stiff and sore I was this entire week.

    Freako: I can remember when 3 reps was a high rep deadlift day!!

    Natzo: iPod! Of course I can just put on the sound system, but the neighbours kids are a bit young for metal to be blasting across the fence.


    Was flat, tired and pretty ordinary leading into this session.

    Bench
    60kg x5
    80kg x5

    100kg x5
    115kg x3
    127.5kg x3 - 4th rep wouldn't go to lockout so can't count it, thought I was good for 5-6.

    DB thick bar row
    50kg x15 2 sets

    Floor press
    112.5kg x8 2 sets - was pausing elbows on the ground each rep, made it much harder than previous weeks.

    Chinups
    20kg x6 -

    BB bicep curl
    42.5kg x12

    Rope tricep ext
    BW x15

    Dominating those thick bar rows! What diameter? I'm looking into getting a pair of handles and haven't decided between 2" or 2.5". I don't think my fingers are long enough for 3".

    ^^ It is an old piece of steel pipe, just over 2", probably closer to 2.25".

    I have a 2.5" as well, but that is just a little big in my hands for it to be anything other than grip work. So I'd reckon you'd want 2".

    Rob: Bon Jovi wouldn't get a look in on my iPod!

    PV: I've surprised myself with those. The rows were really a mental roadblock rather than a physical one. I had no energy left when I got to them last night but forced myself to do them, so if I was fresher I'd have gone for 20. Try using a DB you can row for 10 reps and just tell yourself you're doing 20 this week. You'll probably surprise yourself and then be able to start adding weight. I've added 10kg to this in the past couple of months.

    ^^ Yeh just not as many sets as I would do normally. Plus I wanted to try them out to get a feel for them before next week. I'm trying to get some practice at using my knee wraps as a light strapping, such that they don't give bounce but do give support. The BBer I met the other day used them in this manner and I've only really gotten the balance right once (and normally only on my left knee).

    Lionheart: the reason I started doing them was because I was looking for a tricep exercise that didn't hurt my elbows. I had been doing them as a sissy tricep ext but that wasn't hard enough anymore.

    Freako: cheers Ben!

    pingu: wait until a non-deload week!

    Rob: I'm noticing my shoulders and back as well. Need to unwind more regularly now that I'm older.

    PV: Those ext are a great option if you don't have cable machines and the like.

    Shoulder day today. Just a quick in and out deload. Felt like I barely got warmed up by the time I finished.

    OHP
    20kg x8
    27.5kg x5
    35kg x5
    42.5kg x5 - *yawn* barely any weight

    Behind the neck jerk
    65kg x10 - could have done more reps but that wasn't the goal this week, so I'll add weight next week.

    Pullups
    25kg x10 - tore my callouses on the left hand, kinda lame.

    Dips
    35kg x10 - barely warmed up enough for these

    Soundtrack:

    Pickle: They actually felt heavy for the first time in months. Same weight as the week before.....

    Natzo: Dips were affected by my lack of being warmed-up properly. If I'd done a second set I would have easily done 15 or more reps.

    Decided to skip the last deload day and jump into Cycle 4 week 1. Fucked up my squat this evening, in that I just did 5 reps rather than maxing out. They felt good this evening too, so was probably good for 8-10 reps

    ATG squat
    60kg x5
    80kg x5

    105kg x5 - sitting back more to try and correct form
    120kg x5
    137.5kg x5 - didn't max out, forgot: lame

    High box squat - did these really sitting back and keeping upright with a low bar position
    150kg x5
    150kg x5 - these were so hard with the pause (did 10 last week)
    100kg x10
    100kg x10

    SLDL
    90kg x15
    90kg x15
    90kg x8
    90kg x8

    SL calf raise
    37kg x10 2 sets
