    Be good to see some regular PB's in here and I don't doubt you have what it takes to achieve them. I'll have to be on form to keep my tag of Mr PB!

    ^^ I accept your offer for a duel.

    Should it be on heaviest lifts or also allow for most reps?

    Does anyone else want to join Rocky and I on the PB ego trip?

    I didn't realise I'd made an offer of a duel!

    Damit I've been hitting PB's for the past 2 months and have started slowing down.
    I'm claiming the use of all the PB's I've racked up over those 2 months!

    Ok my new routine started last night. THough somehow I managed to come in flat and my pressing suffered as a result.

    Upper
    Warmup

    Work

    Bench
    120x3
    115x3
    125x1
    115x3
    130x1
    115x3
    This was meant to be 120x5's with 1x 130, 135, 140kg. My 1RM of 150kg should have made that easy, but I'm clearly 10-20kg down.

    Thick bar dumbbell rows
    60x5
    65x1
    60x5
    66.5x1
    60x5
    65x1
    60x5
    These were easy, but my forearms are suffereing today.

    Fat man pullup
    10kgx15
    Need more weight

    Pushup
    10kgx20
    Need more weight

    Sissy tricep
    8
    6
    Need to use an alternative

    Bicep
    50x6
    50x5

    I will have to repeat this workout, and probably build up to the weight I should be using. I'm not sure why I couldn't press as well as I rowed, but 120kg should have been an easy 5 with my 6-7RM.

    Still an impressive workout all around, Tim. I'm sure you'll get up to where you want quickly...what are you going to do, 115 x 5 and then build up or are you going to try right away for the 120 x 5 again?

    I'll have to see. I think since 120x3 was all I managed then I'd be better off dropping down to 110 and building up from there. That way I under do it and can bounce back quicker than if I work "on the limit" again.

    But then again it was just a shitty session, so I may find 110 far too light (which it should be having done 100x12 the week before).

    Okai I went a little lighter than I planned for legs, just to make sure I didn't have a ballz up like yesterday. Lifted ok until the rain came down, at which point I pulled the pin so that I didn't slip and do a John Pierre Fux.

    Lower

    Warmup

    Work sets

    Front squats
    100x5
    110x1
    100x5
    115x1
    100x5
    120x1
    100x5

    Single Leg SLDL
    52x5
    55x1
    52x5
    57x1
    52x5
    59x1
    52x5

    Called it quits. Rain was light but had made the surface slippery.

    Don't sweat the light start off - may have just been a bad session, but even if not with your usual strength I'm sure you'll be back to your required point in no time!

    An umbrella is far too girly for his hardcore setup.

    Perhaps some tarps suspended with twine you've braided together from the hemp you found out in the bush.

    I think I might just invest in some great big ovens. That way the rain would evaporate before it hits the ground. Although tarps and braided twine held together with a paper clip would be good too.


    Rocky: Better to underdo it rather than overdo it to begin the new program. And it went well, so can't complain.

    Rage: Rain don't affect me. But slipping on the lifting mat and looking like Jean Pierre Fux isn't going to be stopped by a brolley.

    Glex: Repped!

    Done a couple more sessions, and my shoulder has started to play up again. I'm going to try and consolidate my form on squats and presses for a few weeks to let everything recover, rather than push on.

    Also I've signed up to start riding my bike to work. Teams of three and the most kilometres done in a fortnight wins. I just want to make a good showing going into summer.

    Pisser about the shoulder - sods law that something comes to interrupt you as you get going again. Hope you work around it ok. Bike riding sounds like a good plan.

    ^^ The shoulder seems to handle work as long as I don't push it hard. Inclines and dips were fine yesterday and I didn't go light, just did 3 out of 5 reps.

    The biking will be interesting for a change. Plus it should act as some good fitness work which I haven't really been doing.

    Train hard, train smart people.

    sucks about the shoulder tim, training smart will obviously help but if not i guess resting won't hurt either....

    I'm back!

    Trained tonight for the first time in best part of a month. The flu has weighed me down for the past 3 weeks, but my strength was surprisingly good. Prior to my illness I was 88kg and was using a double progression on a three-and-one week rotation. It seems that my limit strength hasn't declined but my strength endurance (what I have been training for) has.

    The outline of the current program is similar to a weightlifting schedule. The program calls for two main exercises done at 80-85% for 8 sets of 3, then two support exercises at 2x15-20, with accessories done for 2x5-10. Unfortuneately my goal of competing in the State Champs has been shot to pieces with my continued shoulder and hand problems. I have added some good mass, and am finally getting my hamstrings on track.

    Tonight:
    Bench
    60
    80
    100
    110
    120
    120
    100
    Was doing 122.5kg prior to the flu so should be back to that in 3 weeks.

    Thick bar DB rows
    40
    50
    60
    70
    70
    60
    I was doing 71.5kg prior to the flu, these were easy enough, but couldn't rep out the drop set

    L-fly
    12
    12
    Need these for my continued shoulder issues.

    BB Bi curl
    50
    50

    Sissy Tri ext
    x10
    x10
    Elbow is still hating any tricep extension

    Cuban presses
    20
    20

    Band pull aparts
