    Thursday 3/5/12 - Squat/Bench/Rows

    Squat
    85kgs - 5, 5, 5, 5, 5

    Bench
    60kgs - 5, 5, 5, 5, 5

    Extremely happy I got this! So close to failing on the last rep, took forever to get the bar back up, actually had to grunt "no" to the spotter to stop him touching the bar as I hadn't really moved the bar in so long!

    Rows
    57.5kgs - 5, 5, 4, 3, 2

    Completely lost energy and form on these. Will probably drop back to 50kgs next week and work back up from there.

    ****er! Going to back down to 37.5kgs next week and work back up.

    Aren't you only supposed to increase by 2.5kg? Your last press was 40kg right?

    2.5kgs is correct. I have failed 45kgs twice before, my last pressing session was 40kgs because the entire session was light as I was knackered before I had even begun.

    I thought it would be a good idea to jump back to 45kg and give it another go, clearly it wasn't!

    Just had a quick look at your log. You seem to be making good progress so give yourself a pat on the back. I know what its like to struggle on the bench, it can be very demotivating at times. However, i've found that doing a thorough shoulder routine has helped me a lot and has carried over to the bench and i've went from lifting 50s to 80s in 6 months.

    Stick with it !

    Thursday 10/5/12 - Squat/Bench/Rows

    Squat
    87.5kgs - 5, 5, 5, 5, 5

    Bench
    62.5kgs - 5, 4, 5, 5, 3

    Chest and triceps were still aching from Tuesday. Didn't get tight enough on set 2, which is why I only got 4. Feel confident that I will get this next year.

    Rows
    50kgs - 5, 5, 5, 5, 5

    Felt good coming back down to 50kgs from 57.5, was able to control it much better and keep better form.


    Played 2 hours of football tonight, and am absolutely shattered. If I manage 130kgs deadlift tomorrow I will be very surprised.
