Well we didn’t have the meet in the end, due to some people not being able to attend - but we trained with Beni again at his gym.
We did max bench, bench with bands, box squat, max deadlift and then sled drag.
My bench was ok didn’t do a 1RM got up to 14Kg / 308lbs which is a little shy of my 1RM.
Did a bit of Bench band work, haven’t been doing any band work as yet but I’ve now bought the red mini bands to get my speed up. Like Beni said we’re all strong guys but our speed pretty much sucks…
Box Squatting - I did this with Beni the last time I came up to his gym but I did it again and my form pretty much sucked. The guy I train with came with us as well so at least he learnt from Beni and he can watch me and vice versa. I got it pretty much nailed at the end.
Deadlift 1RM - I managed to do 200kg / 440lbs - quite pleased with that as I’ve never tested it before. DrSTU managed 180kg as did my mate Lee but DrSTU was suffering from a cold so he did well to attend anyway.
Sled drag - Not to give excuses but my trainers were crap for getting grip. This was a humbling exercise. We had 180kg on the sled and we pulled it to the end of the road behind Beni’s gym and then back again. I just couldn’t get going at all - bloody useless. Lee and DrSTU did much better than me.
Once we’d done this we’d finished. I bought some bands and a Westside sweatshirt which I haven’t stopped wearing as yet.
Thanks again to Beni, very generous with his time and facility.
Good to meet DrSTU also and put a name with the face.
Another bloody good day with likeminded people.
