Ye, happy with the PR, hitting those in these early weeks when max weight isn't the aim is a good sign.

The injury is similar to last time, just a lower rib. Really tender to touch, makes me wince and just bracing to move and such can hurt. I can push squatting off until Tuesday so not much choice but to sit and wait. Thinking about picking up a single prong belt, I get lazy with adjusting the lever on long training sessions with squats and deads.

You have a double right now?

I use a Spud and it bows out a bit around the edges. Kind of nice but I;m not sure it gives the same support on squats.

I have a lever belt. I wear it looser for deads so when I squat after I can never be bothered changing it and wear it higher on my ribs to get the tightness I'm used to with squats. My ribs don't like it and they're still ****ed so I doubt I'll be training lower, maybe Friday. What a depressing start to the week, my own fault though so live and learn.

I like the look of the Spud belts for deads but with them not being allowed in my fed I wouldn't want to get too used to it/spend on it.

This was always my concern with a lever belt. I too have about a hole difference between squats and deads. It also fits me differently when I'm in my gear. Is it really that much faff to change?

It's really not that bad, it's just the days that I've been too lazy I've payed for it wearing it higher. Think I'll still be getting a single prong sometime in the next few months though, even if it's just for deadlift as that's the lift my belt varies with more.

36kg's x 5 @8.5
36kg's x 5 @9
36kg's x 4 @9
36kg's x 4 @10

Facepulls/Tri Pushdown

Lat Pulldown
42.5 x 25
56.5 x 10
49.5 x 12,12

Not bad, ribs are still painful but no biggie when benching. Switched overhead for medium grip bench as it's painful to do. Felt dodgy on my shoulder at first like all closer grip does but got into a good groove in the end and felt strong.

Thinking about trying some stuff out with my main movements, similar to the paused bench today, working up to a certain @# and then using back off sets. It's similar to some of the more advanced RTS techniques, I think it would work well with bench.

Was going to drop the timed reps stuff and row but that was a real bitch on the ribs. I've got an appointment with the docs on Friday so if they're still painful I'll see if he can check them out. Still managed to get upper back pumped after that.

Huge plate of leftover ribs to dig into now .

Mmmmmm... Ribs.

Nice work.

Hope the doc finds nothing wrong.

You and Mark would be a nice competition to watch!

Hope it works well for you.

I've done a lot of that over the years. Always makes the back off sets feel more powerful.
