Building for a Better Tomorrow

It certainly helps with the motivation.

Had knee and back problems following the last ruck so missing it until they are 100% again.

Warm ups then PITT Force
Chin up 20x1 5kg
Dips 20x1 11kg

Chins are getting a lot harder, the weight increases on dips don’t feel as heavy although it’s the same amount.

Back at the gym again.
Warm up then
PITT Force seated row 20x1 65kg
Pitt force chest press 9x1 53kg 11x1 42.5kg
Leg press 13,6,0 x132.5kg 1 leg negative 1x132.5kg as slow as possible
Leg Curl 5x50kg

Couldn’t get my right arm to lock out on the 10th rep on the chest press so had to reduce weight, will stick with 53kg until I can get the full 20 reps.

11.11.21 06:40 20 min ruck 11kg

Today, at the gym again.
Warm up then
Pitt Force seated row 20x1 68kg
Leg press 20, 6, 2 x 132.5kg 20 seconds between groups of reps
Leg curl 6x53kg
PITT Force chest press 15x1 53kg 5x1 42.5kg

Slowly getting close to 20 reps on the chest press, leg work done out of sequence rather than stand around waiting for the chest press to become available.

Finally went and took a look at some of the PITT force vids on Youtube. Seems to be very popular in Germany as the first 3 vids I watch were in German which I fortunately speak. Looked like some nice equipment.

It does originate from Germany, I did German in school but can’t remember any of it other than useful phrases like “We are making masks”, so totally useless to me really. There is a web page in English at the link below though https://emerging-athlete.com/pitt-force-training/

Leg press 20, 10, 2 x 132.5kg 20 seconds between groups of reps

Leg work again out of sequence rather than hang around waiting for the chest press and leg press to become available. Only got about 4 hours sleep last night so wasn’t expecting things to go as well as they did.

Been looking at Pitt force, since coming across it in your log. Thinking of giving it a go, from what I have ascertained, you pick a Wight you could do 10 continuous reps with, but do 20, taking longer rests between reps as the set progresses, keeping a high rep quality?

That’s exactly it, you also have 4 minutes to do the 20 reps on exercises except for the harder ones which have 6 minutes (squats and deadlifts).
