, cheers bro.
@Austin the bicep himself! Thanks man, appreciate it coming from you.
@Jake, yeah man my shoes are from Strength Shop (love that place) but they're called Lokis. They were very cheap but my first ever pair of Oly shoes so I played it a little safe in case I didn't like them. But I LOVE them. And it's actually my best mate's little brother - I've been coaching him for a few months. My brother doesn't lift.
As for bench tips, get a vid up of your bench and I'll take a look but I'm no expert - I've just been doing what the experts say. And also I ditched bodybuilding form - that shit got me injured and I never made it past 90kg.
I'm down south in Hampshire, you?
Various warmups, air squats and broomstick stretches.
60kg x 5
100kg x 5
120kg x 4
140kg x 3 - Double overhand PR
160kg x 1 - switch to mixed grip
175kg x 2 - deadstop reps
Form felt solid and strength was there but I could tell my body isn't used to heavier weights still. I felt "pressure".
60kg x 3
100kg x 3
110kg x 1
120kg x 4 - 3Rep PR! Was aiming for 3, so I'm pleased with that.
These felt terrible as I was ramping up. Nearly cut them short but glad I didn't.
Conditioning: 21/15/9 as quickly as possible of:
This was a goddamn bastard. Deadlifts I went straight through the reps without breaks because the weight was so light, but I had to do the burpees 5 at a time and was dying by the end. Still, the burpees are feeling better, I just really suck at them.
Massively overheated after the metcon so jumped in to a cold shower for 5 minutes. But I'm still overheating as I write this 10 minutes later lol. Good session though. Now I need to eat. Everything.
