Thanks guys! It ain't easy but if it was, it would only be a sign that I'm not doing enough.
@Fazc: I write this in the Goals 2013 thread:
"Better conditioning, maintain training consistency but be a bit more patient. Hit weight loss goal and gain weight sensibly when the time comes. Stick to the program and trust the process.
As for numbers:
Bench Press - 120kg x 3
Squat - 160kg x 3
Deadlift - 200kg x 3 Hitting this weight for singles would represent progress but nailing them for triples would be awesome and a stepping stone to the 300/400/500 ground.
Power clean & push press - 100kg x 1
A bodyweight strict press would also be awesome"
Fairly generic I guess but all of the above is possible.
Cycle 2 Week 1 Back Density Dec 19
80kg: 5 x singles - These were surprisingly good and crisp. I rarely have hit 80kg so cleanly consistently.
Deadlifts - 10 minutes
160kg: 3 x singles
140kg: 8 x singles
Made a balls of this. Should be looking for 15 singles not 10. 160kg felt shite and there was a danger of injury so I chose 140kg to get in some decent reps in the time I had left. Live and learn!
70kg: 7 sets of 5 = 35 reps. 5 above target
5,5,5,4,4,4,3 = 30 reps. On target!
50 secs, 30 secs
No excuses, just results.
Getting it done one session at a time.
