High Frequency Westside (Kinda!)
Hey folks

Thought I would start posting my lifts up over here, seems like a great place with lots of strong Pler types.

So far I only have a couple meets up my sleeve, all raw with wraps but things are on the up over here in Australia so hopefully we can get more meets going locally.

Heres a weeks or so of training to kick it off.

ME Squat Day

I squatted vs 4 chains today, worked up to an attempt with 166kg on the bar and missed it. Bah, I think my stance was in a touch closer than normal. I did backoffs for reps after and then worked chins and hammies. Pretty good day despite the missed attempt.

Had a strong day today, I squatted with the straight bar and 3 chains + an orange band. This went well as I got pretty close to my record with just the band on there. I did quite a few sets then hit abs, GHRs to finish. Legs were all swole up after this! Good day.

ME Squat Day

Squatted vs a blue and orange band today, alot of bands is never fun but it worked me good! I hit a max and then backed off for volume. I then pulled sumos from a small defecit to a heavy single with lots of speed pulls before. Finished with rows I think.

ME Squat Day

I decided to test the waters today and squat straight weight, spent the whole day in a stressed out frenzy and my head was really not in it.I worked up and missed 170kg, stress is a muth****a! But the backoffs went pretty well, I hit a nice set of 8 with 3 wheels. Legs are growing nicely from the rep work.

ME Squat Day

Tried straight weight again, for something different.I got to 157.5kg which was way tougher than it should have been. So I dropped way down and did ALOT of sets. I topped out at 145kg for a tough double but in my defence I had already done 17 sets before that! LOL I finished off with UDLs which destroyed my hips and then black band GMs. To down after that.

Bench/Squat Day

I did paused singles today and then a bunch of assistence work, it went pretty well, the singles didnt feel great but they were not heavy either, more awkward. Bench feels weird ATM! I then did close grips and some incline dumbells followed by SSB anderson squats with chains. These went great and blew me up. Good day.

Bench/Squat Day

I just didnít feel like squatting today, at least not first anyways! So I benched, I worked heavy 6s after some submax singles. I got about a kg off my old PR so not bad. I then did MPs for quite a few sets and some tricep extensions. I finshed with front squats.This is the first time doing them in about 3 years, I now remember why. Any squat that works my shoulders more than my back and legs can **** right off. Only way Iíll do these again is with a harness. I finished with high rep GMs so I at least felt a bit worked.

ME Squat Day

Kicked it off with SSB squats and an orange band today, worked up to a new record of 131kg, I then repped out for 3 sets with the plan of doing a bunch of single leg volume after.I got a bit caught up with lat work first and tanked out so I’ll pummel leg volume tonight to be sure! Lats is one thing I could do more of, trying to fix that. Good day anywho.

ME Squat day

I did anderson squats to pin 28 today, this places me at about paralell, maybe a tad higher, right below where I stick in the squat.I worked up to a top single of 157.5kg, paused on the pins that was one biatch heavy lift.I did a tonne of backoffs for triples and then did defecit split squats. Had some weirdness going on with my rh hip flexors (which when done heavy these always aggrevate) so I started off extremely light and will build from here. I finished with leg curls for high reps. Solid day, not one ounce of energy left.
