Thanks a lot guys
I'm a ways from catching you in anything Swede
I'm starting to fixate on hitting 3pps for bench, 4pps in squat and 5pps in deads by this time next year. Today was my first day as a thirtysomething and I just had to celebrate it with a PR
Set up for 175 but said sod it, let's go for 4 plates!
180x1 - PR! Honestly feel there is more here. Knees to near lockout was the hardest and lockout was surprisingly comfortable. Held the bar for a good 6-7 seconds and could have done longer.
160x1 - The PR did take a lot out of me, these were harder than the 180!
Next week I'll do 162.5 for singles and then try for 400 pounds in 2 weeks.
70x5x5 - Decent
Pin 12: 8 reps - cheap PR
Pin 12: 6, 6
75kg: 10 sets of 2 reps - Got better towards mid sets
Seated DB curls
20x7x2 - Another PR of some sort
Decline sit ups + 27.5kg dumbbell - TOUGH!
3 x 8 - A final PR
Note: My arms are fairly small in comparison to the rest of me. My upper arm is maybe 15-15.5 inches flexed and forearms around 12 inches at widest point. I don't mind that much and I certainly wouldn't let arm concerns get in the way of deadlifting, squatting and pressing but I assume I will look like someone who lifts when I reach the 3pps bench, 4pps squat, 5pps deads area?
Note 2: First time in months that I have gone 3 days in a row without getting sick. Happy days
