Yes mate, all in kgs, none of this imperial nonsense here
Actually, I would like to do it in pounds but it would just look awkward. Thanks for the support

Squats Light:
65x5
80x5
95x5
95x5

Deadlifts
60x5
77.5x5
92.5x5
107.5x5
122.5x5 PR
Tougher than I thought it would be as last week was so easy. Was very tired and fatigue was a bigger enemy than the weight itself.

Push Press
40x5
50x5
60x5
67.5x4
Failed the 5th rep but this is further than I thought I'd get in a short time so not too displeased.

Cleans
60x3
65x3
72.5x1
Had nothing left and didn't even raise the bar off the ground for the 2nd rep. Might switch this to day 3 next week.

Shrugs:
42.5kg dumbbells: 3 x 8 PR

BB Curls
42.5: 3 x 6 PR as I had never done more than 5 reps at this weight

Abs:
Side Bends: 25kg: 5 x 12

Lifts are funny that way for me. An extra 5 pounds can often feel like 50.

You're creeping to towards 3 plates Kuyt. Nice effort.

Went out last night for dinner and had some cocktails. Felt rough and back was still stiff from Thursday's deads. Felt like giving it a miss but I went in regardless, unsure as to what I would do weight wise. After 2 sets I felt strong as a horse. A new squat PR followed.
Today's Lesson: ALWAYS MAKE THE SESSION! We really have no idea what wil happen. Sometimes we will do a bad session but on other occasions, you'll really surprise yourself.

Squats
65x5
80x5
95x5
110x5 felt smooth so tried
125x5PR
My face looked like a strawberry but I got in 5 good hard reps. Incredibly pleased

BB Bent Over Rows
Pendlay's are not working for me. I just don't feel comfortable so I went back to the other version, weak boy rows as Steve calls them
40x5
50x5
60x5
65x5
75x5PR
Bit of body English but not ridiculously so.

Bench
50x5
62.5x5
75x5
85x5
Felt a wee bit rough by now so I called it at set 4. If it felt good, I would have tried a PR.

Pull Ups
6, 4 ,4 Less than awesome

Weighted push ups:
25kg: 9, 8, 8

Farmer's Walk:
30kg dumbbells: 20 slow steps x 3

Abs:
Decline sit ups:
+10KG: 4 x 12, 9

That's ok. You have to do what works best for you. The only thing important is strength, from any position. And you're doing a great job of that.

Nice work on the squat PR.

Thanks From now on, I'll go for a PR when I feel up for it rather than have a designated day and see how that goes.

I have come down with a bad case of SSS (Shit Spotter Syndrome). I specifically told the guy not to touch the bar until I said so. I began the set and what does he do? KEEPS HIS HANDS ON THE BAR AND PULLS IT UP FOR ALL REPS!
I just finished the set without knowing how much of the effort was mine. Anyway, I do feel as if my bench has stalled so on Saturday, I will try an 85kgx5x5 for some much needed volume. Indeed, I may use this approach whenever I fail on consecutive weeks as a means of fighting the good fight. The alternative is to cry about life not being fair.

Squat
67.5x5
82.5x5
97.5x5
112.5x5
Left it at that for the day.

Bench
50x5
62.5x5
75x5
85x5
97.5x5??? See above

Cleans
55x3
65x3
72.5x3 PR
Decided to move the cleans and it felt good today.

BB Bent Over Rows
40x5
50x5
60x5
70x5
60x11
Form felt crap @70kg so I may enforce the 5x5 volume approach here to get strength while keeping the form somewhat decent.

Weighted Chins
+10kg: 3x3 Felt like trying something different

Weighted Dips
+25KG: 7,7,6 PR Nice

Weighted Crunches:
+27.5KG: 5 x 12

Bent over laterals:
8kg: 3 x 8

Sounds like a good approach. In the old days, when cars had stone wheels, I would drop the weight and do a 10x10.

Keep charging hard.

You're in Leicester, surely turning around and nutting the lad would be socially acceptable?

And commonly seen in the pubs around the West of Ireland when everyone becomes a 2 can Van Damme.
