That 100 rep challenge looks brutal.

Regarding straps, I could never master them. If you ever get a chance, pick up some Versa Gripps. They are easy to use and great for rows.

It is pretty damn brutal. I'm giving it another shot tomorrow, might try two sets.

Those versa gripps look good. My grip is a limiting factor with DB rows, I have only just thought that I don't use chalk for them so I will give that a go first.

Default 5/3/1 - Wave 2 - Week 3 - Deadlift + Military Press

Deadlift

1x5 60kg
1x5 80kg
1x5 100kg
1x3 110kg
1x5 137.5kg
1x3 157.5kg
1x1 175kg
1x1 190kg
1x1 200kg
1x1 210kg/462lbs
1x0 227.5kg/500.5lbs

Deadlifts felt really strong. Missed 227.5kg two or three inches off the floor. I think this might point to weak hamstrings which I'm hoping regular GM's will help with.

Military Press

1x5 30kg
1x5 37.5kg
1x3 45kg
1x5 55kg
1x3 62.5kg
1x1 70kg
1x1 80kg
1x1 90kg/198lbs

Definitely a PR because I have never maxed out military press before because I've always wanted to save my shoulders for scrummaging and line out lifting but since I have a couple of weeks off I decided to give it a go. 90kg felt solid but I didn't know what I would do if I failed.

Default Cardio

Cardio - Rowing Machine

2 minutes rest between sets.

1 x 500m 1:44.6
1 x 500m 1:53.5
1 x 500m 1:54.9
1 x 500m 1:55.3
1 x 500m 1:56.6
1 x 500m 1:55.8

Total time 6 reps 11:20.5 - Average 500m split = 1:53.4

Took over 10 seconds off my total time. Absolutely flew on the first rep which I paid for on the 5th and 6th rep.

100 Rep Challenge

20 Bar Push Ups
20 BB Row
20 RDL
20 Squat
20 GMs

Total time - 160 seconds

Struggled with hand position on the bar for GMs. No idea what I was playing at to start with and the bar was moving all over the place. After 7 reps of GMs the urge to just quit was massive, I think you can see it on the video. Next time I will try 40 squats.

Great video. Had me sweating. Had you ever tried good mornings before this challenge?

I have been doing them pretty regularly for a couple of months. I don't know why my hands went out, my grip for them is always fairly narrow.

I don't think GMs were a particularly good swap for shoulder press. I looked at Martin Rooney's youtube page and the athletes he does it with look to half rep push press it, maybe I should be less concerned about full range and just concentrate on moving the weight as quickly as I can.

Does he do the front military press or behind the neck press?

Split stance front press but what I would consider to be half reps (no problem with that, it looks like his coach is happy with them).

Is it as awesome as it looks in the video?

I have just changed gym, will be going there from 9th August. It look a little similar with a running track going around a lifting area. The woman that showed me around said it was the biggest training facility in Europe but there is a lot of stuff there that I won't ever use.

There are recovery pools that look like they could be amazing.
