    Restarted my 6 week bench program to try up my lift to 125-130, the gym now has a PB board and someone has 130 bench 180 deadlift (someone else has 150 squat but I'm not friends with squats at the minute, working on our friendship though) my bench is currently 120 and deadlift is 200.







































    I MUST OWN THE BOARD!*


    Once I sort this poor squat out.

    205 and 210kg deadlifts tonight (singles), almost didn't get the 210 and thought my spine was going to boing out of my back like a coiled spring. Video proof too which I will post if anyone is interested.

    Worked up from 100x8 120x6 140x4 160x1 180x1 205x1 210x1

    Gym boards are such a cool feature. When our gym set one up, people started trying harder.

    hmmm. I'm still bumbling along but we have purchased new bits for the gym to launch a serious attack. Obviously I am not in it for the strength and just to loose some weight as my height and current weight don't tally .

    but for reference I am doing the following to kick start the weight loss stuff

    All GVT 10x10 with a 4-1 or 3-1 tempo

    Bench 100kg - all 10 sets with zero fails (but damn close )
    squat 120kg - all 10 sets with zero fails (ditto as above)
    deadlift 110kg - all 10 sets with zero fails.

    The list goes on, the weights aren't great but they are ok for 100 reps effectively. I haven't done any 1 rep max's for a longgggg time but they should still be ok but at 42 the proper heavy stuff I leave for the younger lads

    meh its not bad, but I'm not big by any means, so its prob more to do with prior conditioning and just being pig ignorant when it comes to not knowing when to give up. generally try to keep and 3-1 tempo but obviously the last 2 sets probably speed up a bit.

    Tonight the guys were in a bit of a hurry so we did chest, we just did 5 sets of 20 (70kg) on a 4-1 tempo supersetted with 5x20 tricep push down, then topped it off by taking 10kg of the bench and 5kg off the pushdowns to do one superset of 35reps on each.

    I don't mind dropping the weight for an easy one every now and again as it keeps things alive and different. Also its better to do something than doing nothing

    Don't think I'd manage 10x10 @100kg attempted a single at 110kg last night to see where I stood on my quest to 130kg, all was going well in the run up but my right elbow failed me twice at the 110 attempts. Current PB is 120 for 1 so I should have got it easy.
