Push Press: 5 x 60kg, 5 x 70kg, 4 x 80kg, 3 x 85kg, 2 x 90kg, 1 x 100kg

Cable Row: 8 x 90kg, 8 x 105kg, 8 x 120kg
That 245kg squat was the closest I’ve come to missing because my legs simply couldn’t move the weight - normally I keep the weight back on my glutes and lower back etc. and don’t feel much in my quads… If I start missing squats at lockout raw I might be able to get some kind of weirdness certificate. Anyway, great work!
Squat: 6x100kg, 5x140kg, 2x180kg; 1 x 220kg, 1 x 230kg, 3 x 215kg (=PR?)

SGDL: (beltless) 3 x 3 x 140kg, 2 x 160kg, 1 x 170kg (PR?)
Good effort again! 160-170kg snatch-grip, belt- and strap-less, is pretty tough, and a nice 220kg pull again after squats isn’t letting me down too badly. Going home today, so training will be more normal again (schedule + equipment wise).
Rugby: up to 7 sec. to sprint 60m, then 23 sec. to rest, x max reps. I got to 7 or 8 reps then my calves started to cramp so I pulled out. Could be far worse, I felt fast even if my endurance isn’t the greatest. Then skills etc. and more fitness.
Squat: 3x120kg, 2x170kg; 1 x 220kg, 1 x 230kg, 1 x 240kg, 3 x 220kg (PR!)
Push Press: 7 x 70kg, 4 x 80kg, 3 x 90kg, 2 x 95kg, 1 x 100kg
There was no time to finish with light bench triples like I’d planned, so I did 80 push-ups, which were actually quite enjoyable, over two sets (50, 30) then left it there. Great work done again today despite having a cold.
Squat: w/u with 3x70kg, 3x120kg, 2x170kg; 1 x 220kg, 1 x 240kg, 1 x 247.5kg (546lbs, PR!), 2 x 220kg
Cuban Press: 8 x 28kg DBs, 10 x 26kg DBs, 12+ x 15kg DBs
Bench: doing some at home now, just taking 40 mins after that session to rest and celebrate continued progress!
…and bench was as follows:-
Bench: 2 x 4 x 80kg, 4 x 115kg, 3 x 3 x 135kg
Simple practice session to begin the push towards another bench PR. Felt reasonable.
Rugby: “friendly” vs an invitational-type team, decent win, tough fitness work.

Not liking the new format here. Shame, this site had a great look before and was far easier to use. Hopefully the spacing will be right on this post, if not I apologize. Training was solid after rugby, nice SGDL PRs too!
