Thanks guys.

I have all these lifts on video, i should post them somewhere soon.

I had a crack at 200kg, but my mind started playing tricks on me and i failed to pull it off the floor.

Soon it will be done.

I'm convinced that DL is the most psyche-dependent of all the lifts. Attitude, focus, positive thinking, etc., etc. all have a big effect on it. I find that I DL better when I'm alone than when there is anyone else at all in the weight room at the same time. I have the luxury of lifting in a small private weight room where I can often be alone.

Last week someone else was there, someone who naver DLs. I had the bar loaded up for my top work set, and he commented something like, "that's sure a lot of weight." I immediately started thinking, "what does he mean by that?--it's a lot of weight, you are stupid for trying to lift so much, or it's a lot of weight, I'm really impressed, or you're a wimp and you'll never get it up"--etc., etc. Well, it wasn't really a maximal attempt, and I got a few reps, but they felt shaky and I didn't get as many reps as I'd hoped for. This week I lifted alone, and got what is a recent best, and felt great doing it.

Four cycles complete of 5/3/1 on Bench Press and Squats and i am very happy with the results so far.

Bench Press 1RM - 102.5kgs, which is an improvement of nearly 15kgs in a six months.

Squats 1RM - 130kgs, which is an improvement of 5kgs, but i've been more focussed on my deadlift on which i've improved 25kgs since the middle of January.

I'm moving soon so my gym time will be limited, i've got one full week next week but after that it will be pretty sketchy. So in reality i'm not going to get any regular gym time for probably 6 weeks. It will be interesting to see how much strength i lose in that time, if any.

Moved and back in the gym.

Changed from a countryside gym with a weights room that only me and one other guy used after 9pm, to joining an inner city gym. Bit of a change. But a lot more equipment.

Gonna rest a couple of cycles on 531, and add a few different exercises as i now have more equipment to use.

re: Half Kneeling Cable Anti-Rotation Press

How do you find these? Do you do 12 each side x 2?

I'm thinking of adding them to my workout (per the Gentilcore write-up).
