Well - today was “bold”.

Deadlift 178 8 sets of 3.
About 16 weeks back it took me 45 mins to pull 4 sets of 3 with 190. So to pull 8 sets of 3 within 25mins as weel. Very happy. Progress.

Front squat
100 3x6 felt like I had much more in there. I will push this next time.

Goblet squat and lunge SS limited by plate size.
25kg GS. +10kg lunge

Straight leg deadlift and dimmer dead lift
3x12 each of. 110kg each of.


Good solid progress in here Carl, any news of future comps?

Not yet. My coach is asking me to hold off anything for a while. He wants a good 5-7 months I think. Its a bit crap. BUT the guy is strong as you like. Squats 400kg - without a suit. So he knows his stuff. So I’m gonna let him work his magic.

Exciting times, be interesting to watch your progress with a coach, you’ve been training hard and been seriously dedicated for a while now, so it’ll be a good comparison.

Thank you.
Yeah - its exciting. I’ve committed to a year with a coach. Which is not a massive amount of time. But already hes got a plan for the next 16 weeks. And its nice to “be lead” for a while.

We’ve agreed targets. I’m looking toward 180/200kg front squat. And 110kg log over head. Which are big. But honestly I feel like I have them.
