#442

Super jealous. Demo work is my favourite and jackhammers are the tits!


#443

Mate.
I’m just a painter, I’m not cut out for hard work.


#444

@Irishman92 you call this fun?


#445

Oh you are ripping up tiles? Nah fuck that is not fun! You are on your own buddy :joy:


#446

Fine you can help grind off all the old glue seeing as you’ll be in Canberra soon :stuck_out_tongue:

Tuesday workout: weight: 83.9kg

Fat bar OHP: EMOM: 10 minutes. Triples @ 62.5Kg (30 reps)

Accessory:

Goodmornings: 2x10 @ bar (mainly to get a good stretch)
BOR: 10 @ 90,90,100kg

Notes:
Work ran over time again.
Back and forearms are pretty much stuffed from actually working hard today.
Presses moved better than expected though.
Thursday workout will probably be something lighter with a bit more volume.


#448

Thursday workout:

Pause squats: 5x3 @ 165kg

Accessory:

Incline chest press machine, face pull and lateral raise supersets.

Notes:
Completely wiped out after a couple of days on the jack hammer but once I got to the gym and started lifting things livened up.
Weights been feeling lighter on my back recently.
I think I’ve added some mass to the legs, quads are looking a bit better.
So Mitsubishi gave me a time to come and collect my Triton (2pm Monday)


#449

Some nice squatting going on here man.


#450

Thanks man,
I only really squat and OHP these days.


#451

Do you ever combine both and squat with bar overhead ?


#452

Lol overhead squats? I’ve never really seen much use for them as Id be limited by what I could hold overhead. (not much)
So keeping them separate would work better for strength.

Plus I’m not flexable enough for that shit lol


#453

Monday workout:

So spent the day grinding off the old tile glue and my lower back is knackered.
Squats: EMOM: 4 minutes. Triples @ 140kg (12 reps)
Tried these with a lose belt but my lower back wasn’t having any of it.

Legpress: EMOM: 11 minutes. 12’s @ (can’t recall the weight used) (132 reps) Legs are full fried.

Accessory:

Cable curls and face pull supersets.

Notes:
So Mitsubishi called me this morning, some how they haven’t fitted all the accessories.
So fucking useless, they’ve mentioned compensating me but we’ll see.


#454

Wow that is some serious leg press volume, how was the pump ?


#455

Fucking horrible haha I’ll be back on the grinder tomorrow too, so might have to workout something similar for OHP.


#456

Thursday workout:

Fat bar OHP: 3x8 @ 60kg

Accessory:
Goodmornings: 3x10 @ 80kg
Chest press machine 3x10 @ 50(kg?)

Facepull supersets.

Notes:
Working the extra hours and doing physically harder work than I’m used to has slowed me down some but I think I’m starting to adjust.
OHP moved well, not to much trouble.
Goodmornings were another story Lower back still isn’t 100.

On the car side of things, I’m picking it up after work tomorrow
I ended up speaking to the manager and he said after the salesman said he wasn’t sure when he could get someone to complete fitment and would be able to do anything till thursday.
So fucking useless.


#457

What’re you getting done?


#458

bull bar, tub liner, ladder rack tonneau cover, side steps, extra bash plates and some more aggressive A/T tyres.


#459

So didn’t get down to the gym today, planning to head back tomorrow.
Done with demolition, back to painting and a return to normal lifting lol

Finally took delivery of the Triton :+1:

Took it for a trip a drive in the Brindabellas (went up Mt Coree). Had no trouble getting up there at all.
I’m pretty stoked.


#460

That’s pretty. Shame about the bloke photobombing.


#461

Oi just because you lift big weights and shit.
Ha the brindies is really nice, I’d definitely recommend checking it out
