Shocking effort to being the workout - Ryan was complaining about his shoulders on the front squat, so I dropped the weight but made him do an extra set @ higher reps than planned.

Ryan also wanted to try out OHP with the dumbbells, as I told him they would better target his stabilisers, consequently the load moved was less than with the bar.

But something changed after I told Ryan he was comfortably moving 65 kgs on the seated row - he didn't realise. Suddenly PRs started happening

Bench press (flat)
11.5 reps @ 50 kgs PR

Hammer curls
12 reps @ 12.5 kgs equal to best effort

Ultimate Ryan is getting STRONG.

I swapped out his last set of tri-push because he complains of it not properly recruiting his triceps. It is kind of a sticking point for him - I've assessed his form and it appears solid. But we tried this other exercise (which is like a 1 arm french press) and he says it feels more effective. I'm not going to argue with him. While he's doing that, the tri-push machine is free for Jared to use. Time saver.

Yo! look whos training hard

one thing i would recommend is not starting with squats, i would put them in after rows just to give the upper body a mini break in the middle of the workout.

keep it up

Cheers Ken! But I like Squats at the start, as does Steve Reeves. So that's how it's done. :P

understood, but just remember Steve Reeves and yourself are mesomorphs and genetically built for punishment.

Ryan is not, that small amoount of rest will allow him to smash through the last part of his workout without having any negative effect on his squat numbers.

but just my thoughts, now i had probably better do some work ROFL

The initial reduction in Ryan's progress on squat has been remedied.

Coming in cold was having more of an impact on his CNS as the load went up. By simply performing a warmup set of 5 or 6, at a reduced weight (it's not a predetermined amount at this point - just whatever he feels is easy to warmup with), he is now hitting PRs on almost every set.

Take a look at his numbers from earlier this week (coming soon).

I will make certain he does the whole lot tonight.
