Taking down 650kg among other things

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd start a new log. I find it's good to have a log even though insta etc. 

Early December I hit a 625kg gym total at about 103 bw. Happy with gains made in 2017. It was a light year competing. I did 570 in march and then a 145 bench only mid yearish. 

I have packed in a decent amount of bw and some of it is power belly I'll take that for the numbers I'm putting up. It's interesting that even though I've had a massive life stress this year if buying a business, I have still made great gains. I put this down to the less stress of competing. 

2018 I've made the call to compete with gpc and ipl if a comp slots in with them. 

End if the day I compete for fun and I'm not world class at this point so I might as well lift where it's the most fun. Regardless I'll battle with whoever I'm up against. Weighing up jumping in wraps or sticking with sleeves. I guess if I want to maximize my total and be  more competitive I'll go with wraps. I've used them a few times and are starting to get used to them a little. 

Goals for 2018


Sleeves. 235

Wraps 240-250




272.5 (600lbs)

Total 650

These numbers are reasonably conservative. I got 270 well past my knees and just couldn't lock out. Time to get it done in 2018

220x1 inzer z

230x1 Sig golds pb

Huge pb. Self wrapped to. Once I get my training partner back I should be able to go tighter. Think depth looked dunked too.

Tues 20.2.18

Bench paused 






Not a great day. Gym is flooded again. Weather is crap. Shoulder and arms are fucked. I suspect from all the low bar and possibly bailing on yesterday's squat. Left shoulder felt nasty so didn't really push the issue on the 152.5

3 weeks out from gpc shoreline 3 lift. Just need to get my body to hold up.
