Awesome dude.

How high are you setting the pins?


Unfortunately, the gym I am in is one of the commercial kinds. They don't have a 'squat cage'. What I use is two step benches on top of each other, and it just so happens it is the right height for me. The bar is just half an inch above my knee cap, and I stand with my knees under the bar, hips bent, and shins perpendicular to the floor. The angle of the thigh relative to the shins is about 135°, as was described an article I read(On t-nation, I believe) as the angle that was about the optimal one to train the upper part of the deadlift.

50 reps! You masochist. You might like this little complex I use for shoulders sometimes:

snatch
clean and press
cleans
high pull

do 8 reps of each before moving on to the next, no rest between exercises. Hurts so good

Erg, thats not for shoulders, thats for heart rate ! :)

Anyway - 105kg bench x2

finally looking like a normal bench number - spent first 1-1.5 years with a bizarely disproportionately low bench - im 95% sure all the gains on it have come from sorting my pipe cleaner triceps out via isolation accessory.

Its starting to cap out now, but it was amusing going from 80/82.5k to 105k in about 4 months, 5k+ per 5/3/1 cycle rather than 2.5k - just shows you what a weak link can do.

Stalled hard on my OHP now though - and cutting soon, think thats stuck on 82.5k for a while, lets see what my shoulder and tricep work does to it - im satisfied with the lift now though (82.5 x1 - suspect a bit of fling/leg drive on that as I still fail it from time to time)

Oh, and I thought I was about 14.5-15% body fat, had a go of an electronic hand held one the other day - 16.8%!!!! hope its wrong, either way, time to cut.

390 bench x 4


The Deads were good for me right now, but not a PR

I think the name Jason Bennett, MD has a nice ring to it. :headbang:

I have mixed feelings about this. While I want to congratulate you on your new PR, I also hate you for doing reps in the bench with something that isn't too far from my 1RM in the deadlift. :(

Heck, he's repping with close to my life-time goal!

I was thinking "Junglejason."

Deadlift 1x145kg (320lbs.)

In 10 weeks I have upped my PR 10kg (22lbs.) And I wasn't even close to failing. I'll break 150kg in two weeks. I'll Smash that.

Wow! And this while your bench is lagging! It goes to show you that often we don't make equal progress in all lifts at the same time.
