• Usual warm-up.
• dB incline press: 3 sets with 25 kg (15,15 & 13) (total of 43 reps).
• Back squat: ramped up to 3 x (3 x 100 kg). No 20 repper today.
• Supersetted 4 sets: pull-ups (5 reps) with dips (8 reps).
I watched the video on bracing as suggested by @mortdk before this mornings session. It all made sense, but executing it while under the bar is never as easy as it seems. Will need to keep focusing on this aspect of my lifting.
Little short in time this morning and even though I was feeling good, I was not in the mood for 20 rep squats ,so I passed on that. Im happy with the 100 kg squats, although they did feel extra heavy this morning.
I think I have had enough with this program, but I will continue it for another week until I leave for vacation next week. Im happy with the results I haven’t yet managed to injure my “glass” back, so Im happy with that.
Thanks for the compliments @Destrength. Looking at the above pic, I am kind of disappointed that my legs look that skinny, but considering I stand at 6’2, they probably aren’t that bad. As I was discussing with @Ironwarrior25 the other day, my mind is in a constant battle of choosing between strength gains vs staying “lean and mean”. In an ideal world I would like to lose 1-2%body fat, and gain 5% muscle mass.
