Actually, he said my squat technique was 'the best ever' because I had the chest out and hit good depth. Now if I can do that with 100kg+ I'd be on a good path! His was hitting nice smooth deep reps with 3 plates which is a rarity in my gym.

Thanks Ravi!

I've decided that high rep squats are in fact the root of all evil! Today was a bit more difficult than Friday, mainly because squats were first today and last on Friday since the rack was taken on that day. I guess the fact it was a morning session today may have made a slight difference. Anyways, onwards and upwards!

Squats 52.5kg - 3 x 12
SLDL 52.5kg - 3 x 12
Bench 42.5kg - 3 x 12
Rows 32.5kg - 3 x 12
OHP 22.5kg - 3 x 12
Chins B/W - 5, 4, 5 = 14 reps

On Squats, I am going slightly deeper if anything. Working on pushing up into the bar so I don't fall forward on the ascent. Falling forward on heavy squats has always been an issue with the back rounding under max weights. I've never been too good with having the chest out either so I'm working on that too. Also, I'm learning to breathe better between reps on squat and high reps helps with that! Today, rep 36 was as good as rep 1 which was positive. Every session is a chance to reinforce better technique as well as testing my conditioning!

I used to do Pendlay rows but have changed to more traditional BB rows.
My bench technique is half decent actually with elbows tucked on all reps, heels into the ground, something of an arch and wrists pointing forwards. OHP, I'm working on tucking in the elbows on the descent.
SLDL is not something I normally do so I'm trying to keep it smooth and prevent the back from rounding.

That's good.

Keep playing with Bench form. You don't want too much of a tuck for raw.

Kept the same weight as Sunday and felt much better. The squats are the only exercise that actually caused a bit of fatigue but my technique was spot on at least. Between reps 9-12 on all exercises is when things get sticky but I'm learning to concentrate better and my form is much better on squats now, even when tired which is positive. Focusing on each individual rep is something new for me but it will undoubtedly yield dividends. Before, there would be sets and reps that were half-assed, not anymore.

I also used a slightly narrower grip for bench and didn't tuck the elbows as much as before.

SLDL 52.5kg - 3 x 12
Squats 52.5kg - 3 x 12
Bench 42.5kg - 3 x 12
Rows 32.5kg - 3 x 12
OHP 22.5kg - 3 x 12
Chins B/W - 5, 5, 5 = 15 reps

I also do some push ups, sit ups and bodyweight squats on days off. I hit a set of all 3 together and do 5 sets of each. Nothing major, just something to get me moving since I work at a computer all day! I also walk for 30+ minutes too and use the ab wheel at home. I tend to do this mini session just to take a break from work and I feel great afterwards.
