  1. Idle ramblings and observations.

    Don't be sorry man, that's life. Bench has been a long time coming back. Lots of dumbbells and Smith machine stuff. Never been a big bencher, did 120kg for 6 reps in a previous life lol. Wanted to rep 100kg, which I did. Now looking to build on that, be happy with a single at 120kg now. Trying to build my deads and Squats mainly so I can have a crack at a comp. Never done one before so it should be fun.

    I had a tumour removed from the middle of my upper arm along with about 60% of my medial delt, a chunk of lateral tricep and a smidgen of the brachialis, there's some pics on here somewhere of everything.

    W11, D4&5 (sort of) Squats 3x8 @ 100kg 3x3 @150kg Bench 3x5 @ 60kg, 70kg, 80kg 3x3 @ 90kg Been a bit of mad week but made sure I got the big 3 done. Have not been happy with squats for a while so I've backed off to work on my technique. 1st set at 150kg was a bit iffy depth wise but the last 2 felt good, slight pause at the bottom. Right knee, calf, hammy was feeling good today. Happy with bench, all sets were pretty easy. Ruined shoulder feels good, form felt nice and tight.

    Lol my squats suck at the moment, struggling with form and rhythm. Can't get my head into them at the moment. You're definitely making progress again judging by your journal 👍

    W11 D2 & D3 20/10/20 & 21/10/20 Bis and tris. Delts. Nothing fancy, just keeping them ticking over. Full workouts are posted previously in my log. Squat day tomorrow 🙂

    W11, D1 19/10/20 First day back after a 2 week break due to illness. Bodyweight is 89.5kg Deads 120kg x5 140kg x5 160kg x5 180kg 3x3 Dumbell row 3x10 Straight arm pulldowns 3x12 Back extension 3x12 Deads felt good, bit gassed by the 3rd set of 180 but still moved ok.

    Been buggered all last week with a gastro bug and now my right hammy has spat the dummy as well. Had a good solid 10 weeks will look to test the waters towards the end of the week. Enjoying the Wendlers type reps and percentages on bench and deads but my squats really aren't happening the way I'd hoped. Will look at tweaking them a bit.

    W10 D3 2/10/20 Squats 72.5kg x5 87.5kg x5 105.5kg x3 122.5kg x3 140kg x3 157.5kg x5+ hit 5 reps here but the entire block was shit. Back of my right knee, calf and hammy have been playing up for a couple of months now and didn't want to play ball today. Did some time on the exercylce and called it a day. Still hit the minimum rep target so I'll take the positive.

    W10 D2 1/10/20 Bench 45kg x5 55kg x5 65kg x3 75kg x3 85kg x3 95kg x5+ 6 good reps here, bit left in the tank but no spotter so it stayed in the tank. Happy with this though, fucked shoulder/arm is holding up well. Seated flye machine 3x10 Squeeze press 3x10 Low to high crossover 3x10 Cable crossover ladder amrap x32 Squeeze press was done on a medium incline.

    W10D1 29/9/20 DEADS 87.5KG x5 107.5kg x5 127.5kg x3 150kg x3 170kg x3 190kg x5+ got 6 here. Dumbell row 3x10 Straight arm pulldowns 3x10 Back extension 3x12 Bit annoyed with my last set of deads, spent too much time admiring my lock out and wasn't focused enough on just smashing my reps. Only got myself to blame, lesson learned. On a positive the weights are increasing as programmed and I haven't failed to hit the minimum prescribed reps yet. Got to keep pushing.

    W9D3 25/9/20 Squats 72.5kg x5 87.5kg x5 105kg x3 115kg x5 130kg x5 150kg x5+ 8 reps Single leg RDL 3x12 superset with single leg curl 3x8 Reverse lunges 3x10 Squats were good, need to harden up a bit and push for a few more reps though. Single leg rdl was un-co as but thats why I'm doing them. Need to build some balance, reverse lunges were slightly better. Good day.

    W9D2 24/9/20 Bench 45kg x5 55kg x5 65kg x3 70kg x5 80kg x5 90kg x5+ 8 reps here no spotter so had to take it easy, probably 2 more reps in the tank. Seated flye machine 3x10 Decline flyes 3x10 Low to high crossover 3x10 Crossover ladder set amrap x32

    W9D1 22/9/20 Deads 87.5kg x5 107.5kg x5 127.5kg x3 140kg x5 160kg x5 180kg x5+ 8 reps here. D/B row 3x10 @50kg Straight arm pulldowns 3x10 Back extension 3x12 Was feeling rough today but made myself get it done. Happy with 8 reps on 180kg, needed to man up and push a bit harder could've gotten 2 more I reckon.
