  2. mini-session from last night..

    Comp bench [x5@10]:
    120kg @10
    115kg @10

    Same as previous..first 3 reps fly then really gas on the last few - these very proper @10s, real grinders for the last reps. Will double check my diet etc to make sure I am on top of everything.

    Deadlift [x5@9.5]:
    150kg @8
    170kg @8.5/9

    Decided to finally go and see a chiro to get checked ...

  4. in a rush..

    was off to bodypower for the day to see some strongman/powerlifting/abzzzz...think arnolds but much worse. So, that meant early session and slightly off plan too.

    Bench w/slingshot [x3@9]:
    130kg @7.5/8
    150kg @9
    140kg @8
    140kg @8/8.5
    140kg @9

    I had mid range pin press noted, but didnt have access to a power rack - so to get the lockout work in, used the slingshot - paused all reps except the final 140s..pretty solid. ...

    120kg @9/9.5 *PB*
    115kg @8

    Got much more aggressive with these reps - very happy overall, strong sets - finally!

    (210kg x1)
    220kg x3 @8.5
