Fair enough, I’m assuming we’re talking Joe DeFranco, not Rogan. Cheers for that, I’ll check it out.

Also I ended up doing the exact thing I swear I wouldn’t with DeFranco Insider. Getting all those programs was too tempting :joy:

ME lower
Warm up: 4x25 back extn/goblet squat/db row
Main lift: 20 inch box squat 230kg PR 506LB FUCKERS!!!
assistance 1: good mornings superset W bulg split squat 3 rounds
Assistance 2: back extensions W 20kg superset W hollow dish rocks

So happy to hit a 500lb something. And it wasn’t wrapped and, while not a bouncy touch and go either, just a solid rep.

Congrats on the 506 mate and looking solid. Surprised not to see them quads in the photo, though 506 would add at least an inch.

I prefer 28s. Start and finish with full reps. You think you can’t after the partials, but just another chance to give it hell!

I’ve tried to turn my 21s (usually more like 30s) into mechanical drop sets. If I get the weight right then the final partial reps are just like 7-10 failed full reps. It takes everything I have to get to the halfway point.

There is something strangely satisfying about pushing out a few more than you thought possible. So much easier when another is pushing you. Too easy to disappoint yourself

Max effort upper today
Warm up: seated row, band pulls, pushups 4x25
Really enjoyed that
Main move: bench press medium grip. Single at 125kg.
Supplement: seated machine ohp 2x max with 2plates per side
Assistance 1: face pulls and bicep curls
Assistance 2: lat pulldown, 2 ramping sets, 1 double rest pause
Assistance 3: standing abs
Good day.
Bench was less weight but felt technically better. Not just bouncing off my sternum with a wide ass grip. Keep at the tricep and upper back work and hopefully keep improving

Week 1 day 2
(Life got in the way this week, bday etc)
Deadlifts 5x 125/145/165kg all dead stop
Squats 5x10 85kg
Decline sit ups 5x10
Sled 6 efforts

I made the mistake of dismissing the squats today. There’s no way 85kg will be any challenge I thought. 50 reps disagreed. By the time I got to the sled I was buried lol. Lesson learned. It’s going to take focus and effort to get to 5x10 with 140kg/308lb
