You are a machine.
Yeah, the first heavy sets are quite often pretty horrendous, but I'm getting so used to squatting 230 now that it was fine. And thank you buddy.

Just a couple of sessions ahoy...

06/03/12

Main Session

Bench Press
20x15x2 sets
60x5x2 sets
80x3
100x3x2 sets
115x3 (this definitely seems like a better jump than going from 100 to 120)
130x3
140x1

Slingshot Bench Press
140x3
160x2
170x2
180x2
190x2
200x1+1 spotted rep
205x1

Nice little PB there. Annoyed I missed the 200 double, but the first rep was so easy I had to chuck a little more weight on and go for it. 205kg was a hell of a grinder and my arse came off the bench a little, but I just about managed it. Suh-weet.

CGBP off a 3.5" Block
100x5
120x5
130x3
140x3
150x0
140x3

Pretty broken by this point, shouldn't have even tried the 150!

CGBP
100x12

Lying Tricep Extension
52.5x10x2 sets
55x8
57.5x5
57.5x6

Going to film these next time I see how my form looks because I'm not 100% sure. Triceps were pretty drained, which I guess is kinda the point, but I guess because it's a stretch reflex based power movement it doesn't have the same effect (in terms of pump, not effectiveness) as doing them strict.

Bonus Mini-Session

DB Curls
24x8x5 sets

07/03/12

Squat Jumps
20x5x2 sets
60x3x2 sets
100x3x2 sets
120x3x8 sets

MUCH better than last week - lowered the weight a little and smashed out some nice triples here. Reckon the shrugs on the Monday really messed me up and made these difficult last time as they felt great today and the bar jumped up off my back during each rep. Only thing I'm worried about is it doing that and landing badly on my back/neck/wrists. But, oh well!

Front Squat Lock-Out
60x5
100x5
140x5
180x3
200x3
210x3
220x3
230x3x5 sets

From the same height as last week's lock-outs so only really the top portion, but nonetheless these were great fun and damn tough. Counted the work sets from 200kg upwards so eight in total. And then I moved onto...

Squat Lock-Out
180x5
220x5
260x5
280x3
200x3
320x3
330x3
340x3
350x3
365x1 - 800lbs BIG
365x3x3 sets

I was going to do some high-rep rows after this, but I was utterly broken by this point so I decided to call it. Really love this session and I think the squat jumps and lock-outs work fantastically well together as complete opposite ends of the squat variation spectrum - light and fast versus heavy as all hell and a grind. Again, with the back squat ones I think my traps being broken last week had something to do with me being weak on them, reckon I've got more weight in the tank (would love to hit 400kg or maybe even 100lbs (455) in the future!), but I'm slightly worried with how much weight the j-hooks can withstand or the rack can hold without being a severe safety hazzard!

Your kung fu is strong on benches right now.

How much of a range of motion are you using?

Putting 800 pounds on your back and just standing is an accomplishment. Are you unracking and walking these out or are they from a pin?

On the jumps I'm dropping fast into a full squat then powering back up. With the lock-outs I'm probably getting about five inches. It feels a hell of a lot more than it looks in the video!

No way in hell would I even try to move with the weight on my back, simply standing up is effort enough!

Thank you buddy.

Shush your mouth.

Thank you mate, probably going to start bringing the hooks down, week by week. Or at least hitting a few weeks at the same height then dropping it.
