Deadlift 155Kg/340lbs
Squat 130Kg/285lbs
Bench 80Kg/175lbs (I know)

Training was pretty good today (just shy of awesome)

Well I crushed squats, had no idea what I was afraid of, 112.5Kg felt super light (I’ve squatted heavier for reps before so yeah) and I finally juuuuust about broke through my bench plateau

Squats
Warm up - (1x5 for 62.5Kg, 72.5Kg, 82.5Kg, 92.5Kg and 102.5Kg)
3x5 112.5Kg - Blasted through the first set, second was pretty good had a super tight back and somewhat blasted through the 3rd set, I was playing around and seeing the difference between engaged lats and relaxed lats. ALWAYS ENGAGE LATS! One of the reps might as well have been a good morning, my poor hips.

Bench
Warm up - Can’t remember but pretty standard stuff
5x5 72.5Kg - first 3 sets were awesome, tight back and rock solid balance, last rep of the 4th set took about 10 seconds to get up, a serious grinder but those are my favourite reps tbh. Missed my 5th rep on the 5th set but determined not to stall again I reracked the bar, took 30 seconds rest and managed it with relative ease, I’M COUNTING THAT AS NO REPS MISSED!

Rows
Warm up - shitty, every single bar and plate in the gym was being used so I had to do dumbbell rows and then start my pendlay rows at 45Kg, pretty sure that lead me to fail.

5x5 55Kg - Had to drop the weight to get this, not sure if rear delts are still fried from face pulls of if my lats were just weak (pretty sure it’s the latter actually) but I just could not manage a full ROM with 62.5Kg.

Incline bench
1x4 52.5Kg
2x3 60Kg
6x2 70Kg - Not sure why I ended up going heavy but I felt like it, these doubles were awesome, I fucking love incline bench.

Pull ups/Seated row
10 - Fucking lol. Today was weak as fuck lats day. I did 3 of them with excruciatingly slow negatives (~20-30secs) so that was something but it was all I could muster.
2x10 35Kg - These were the only time my lats played ball today, quite a nice burn by the end of them.

Barbell rollouts
2x10 - Fried my core doing slow pull ups so couldn’t manage a 3rd set, well I probably could have but my abs were ready to give out and I like having a healthy lower back soooo.

So yeah shitty pulls today but squats are coming along nicely after a minor blip and bench is finally moving forward.

This has been long af but it’s mainly for me to look back on so I can see what works/doesn’t work so sorry not sorry.

    Carbs & caffeine are life. SO MUCH ENERGY!

    Fuck having a shitty day I am going to destroy bench today, fucking attack it with everything I’ve got!

    Also I’m not doing high rep squats because that’s just me being nervous about being under the bar after I’ve failed, I’m gonna reattempt the last weight and crush it.

      This makes me sad because it reminds me that I need a smaller leather jacket.

        keeprunningliftplenty replied to your post“How the fuck are you gonna do the cleaning…
        venting needed?
        Yes!
        Like I don’t even care that she’s done that tbh it makes sense, business is slow so she might as well do it now BUT she fucking patronisingly squawks out the exact time at me as I’m signing in like… Can you not just shut the fuck up and let me write down that I got here 5 minutes ago? I couldn’t even just do that anyway because she would been straight up to the bosses office with her tail wagging waiting to tell him the horrible deed I’d just done.
        I think she thinks that all this sucking up will get her off minimum wage but lol NOPE not gonna happen.

          How the fuck are you gonna do the cleaning that you’re paid to do after work during work hours after being a fucking piece of shit over 5 minutes?

          One rule for us and another for the lapdogs. Seriously fuck you. Then you’e gonna expect me to walk to the station with you and make small talk, nah fuck that.

            Can’t be bothered to wash out my protein shaker so I’m putting the powder straight into my mouth and mixing it with water in my mouth.

            Critical laziness has been reached.

                Ok just realised minimum wage in the uk is $8.96. We’re not much better off. Especially in London where rent is ridiculously high.

                Yep it’s sucky, even if you live at home :(.

                Seriously fuck the minimum wage, if a business can’t pay the living wage then it has failed to pay it’s basic operating expenses.

                I will always pay the living wage because tbh that’s the only minumum wage there should be.

                  I can’t fucking stand lapdogs

                  I legit thought You were talking about doggies & I was like but all doggies are great. They’re so gosh darn cute

                  Yeah this post makes a lot more sense with the tags. But yes doggies are great, ALL doggies!

                  I wish!

                    Feeling shitty. Also forgot to take creatine twice in a row so thinking I should just order pizza today and carb the fuck up for my lifts later. Fuck having a beach body, weak bench/rows are pissing me off and yes I know creatine works via saturation so two days shouldn’t make a difference but I definitely feel weaker if I miss a dose and I’m pretty sure it’s not placebo because I usually don’t even think about it until I get home.

                              So are these animals and thugs? 

                              Or, misguided young boys who are going through a stage?

                              this looting reminds me of the London Riots in 2011. the people looting we’re predominantly white, but only black people were shamed about it on national television. hmm.
