Light session today at Doherty’s Campbellfield. One of the few gyms I’ve gone to with metal plates they are good fun.
Working out starting weights for the next volume block on various exercises. Nice and light so I can rep it all day and plenty of room to add work.
No safety bar but played with a high-ish bar position. More comfy than last time but not sold on it. Starting weight ~ 100kg. Safety squat bar stuff gonna start at 80kg I think.
Tried out wide grip and close grip today up to 80kg.
Wide grip felt surprisingly good compared to times in the past I’ve incorporated it. Close grip the stronger grip I think for now. Will start these out at 70-80kg for high reps.
Playing with deficit heights for conventional and sumo. Been told a small deficit is enough to get an effect so it seems an inch or two will be good.
Able to get into a safe position for both lifts with the deficit and weights look like starting around 110kg and 120kg for conventional and sumo respectively. Might increase deficit on the conventional a smidge
Keen to start making some volume gains next week.
