GL with your goal.

Do you plan on making it happen this year?
Was 64kg x8 set all-out? Because that’s about what I do (cf my log), but last time I checked my max, it was still quite a bit behind 80x1 and more like 70x1.

dnt think it will happen this year, but will work with all my might. my top sets are always all out till im unable to keep form (so to speak). my 80kg max was on one of those days where your body is primed just right, everything feels great etc. pissed i didnt film it, will do next time though.

5/3/1 Deadlifts 185kg x4 - meh, reps felt strong, but wanted 5

5x10 back squat 105kg easy

hill sprints x10

5/3/1 OHP 66.5kg x6 - much better, felt stronger overal

BBB ohp 49.5kg 5x10
High BBrow (nipples) 60-70kg
db row 50kg x20
floor pree 5x5 60-80kg

good today

What happened?! You should be way ahead of me by now!
I’m guessing life/studying intervened. Good luck getting back on track - no doubt you’ll get there.
