    Yeah for sure! I feel a whole lot better and more agile etc than when I just chucked on useless weight and as you said hitting same total at lower bodyweight is sweet as.
  3. Pretending to Powerlift

    Hey guys, been really quiet for the last couple weeks. Was getting ready for UPANZ nationals... So 6 weeks ago I did a novice comp and hit a 505kg total which really pissed me off. That was going to be my only comp for the year as I was focusing on work and a few other things happening etc etc. But 505 wasn't good enough so I set out to hit a good total at nats yesterday. So here's a bit of a run down of how it went - Got to venue, weighed in at 74.8kg stripped down so lifting in the 75kg class. Sweet as didn't bother me much, just weigh in how I am on the day. Had a good feed in the morning, kept hydrated. Started warming up and things were feeling good. Squat warm ups went to 140 for a single and that felt so mint and fast. Knew my opener of 160 was there. So I went 160, 170, 175 (personal best). After squats had another feed, lots of powerade etc. Bench up next. Was a bit freaked about bench as my shoulder has been my weak point for a while. Warmed up to a single of 95 paused. Attempts were 107.5, 112.5, 117.5 and all good! After this I was feeling amped as all hell, especially after failing 117.5kg touch and go 3 weeks ago. Deadlift warm ups, up to 180kg for a faaaast single. Opened on 215 and that flew up better than even in the gym. Was going to take 235 for second and thought f it I want that 240. So 240 for second which was good too. 3rd attempt I had planned to go for 250 to equal my old man as a YOLO lift... 240 was pushing limits so went for 242.5 but not today haha. So I ended up with 175/117.5/240 for a 532.5kg total @ 74.8kg bodyweight from 8/9 lifts. This equals a total I did at 80 kg last year. So a 5kg drop in weight (basically fat) and I hit the same total via 2.5kg up on squat and 2.5kg down on bench. The plan for now is to take some time to grow into the 82.5 class again but less fat this time around. Will do deadlift comp at end of year to have a go at beating my old man in the rivalry. Big ups to him for all the training, coaching and mental prep for yesterday. Was one of my best performances yet. Vid is 240 deadlift.

    15/8/2016 Good and bad session today. Shoulder wasn't feeling the best so gonna go see my physio who has brought me back from benching 60kg with massive pain to hitting near my peak again for a couple of massages before comp. Will be sweet then. Bench - warmup 22 press ups for the PTSD challenge + mobility etc bar x12 40kg x10 60kg x10 60kg x8 80kg x5 100kg x1 (felt shit) 105kg x1 (felt even worse) 110kg x1 (got mad, made sure i set up nice and tight, flew up faster than 100) 115kg x1 (good enough rep, shoulder dropped and was a bit uncomfortable) Incline DB Benchpress - 20kg x12 30kg x8 40kg x5 42.5kg x5 Flys 3x12 Nice and simple, last heavy workout before the comp. Rest of week will be light technique stuff then full deload no weights with some active recovery and mobility etc etc. No vid cos go pro cut out during the one good rep (110) and 115 on phone was bad quality due to the way it uploads. Stupid technology.

    Yeah man they aren't the best but we do what we can! Kinda like training from a very slight defecit and always gives me a surprise when I get to comp so not the end of the world haha.

    12/8/2016 Buzzing today, was tired as, had energy drink, sorted. Never use them or drink coffee so you can imagine the caffeine and guarana combo for me. Deadlifts - 60kg x10 100kg x5 120kg x3 140kg x3 160kg x3 190kg x1 (add belt) 215kg x1 (belt) 180kg x3 Sumo Stiff Leg Deadlifts - 60kg x10 80kg x10 100kg x8 Deadlift felt easy, strong through each part of movement. With calibrated plates and a deadlift bar rather than hex plates and broken olympic bar this will fly up as an opener.

  12. Pretending to Powerlift

    After cooking bro. Hmm that's around 3100 cals once i add sauces etc which is enough for me to be in about a 200 cal surplus. I've gone 500 over before and usually end up putting on more fat than I'd like. I think you'd be surprised at just how much food that all is if you cooked it up haha Oats are a cup raw

  14. Pretending to Powerlift

    Average session. Didn't go the way I planned. Was away over weekend, 13 hours of travelling, a birthday party, shit food etc etc my own fault. Always good to have Snr Grizz talk some sense into me. 8/8/2016 Bench 20kg x20 40kg x10 60kg x10 x 2 80kg x3 95kg x 5 105kg x3 117.5kg miss Annoyed as shit at that 117.5 attempt. Controlled down felt fine, pressed off chest then didn't move. Felt slight twang in left elbow but fine now. Tried 110 straight after cos mad as fk but same shit. Anyway, went to do incline DBs, thought f*ck that and pyramid back up on bench to another 105x2. Will sort eating out and smash it for next 3 weeks. Diet for those who care for next 3 weeks: 1. 1 cup oats with berries, 200ml milk and 3 eggs scrambled 2. 1-1 1/2 cup rice, 190gm tuna, 1/2 cup brocoli 3. 1 cup oats, 200ml milk and 3 eggs 4.
