Not mucking around with too many accessories - too frigging hot and humid tonight!

Bench
103 * 5
125 * 3
136 * 4 - final working set
147 * 2 - put a little extra on and went for it, was feeling the love! weight PR! - sooo close to BW bench, but that'll have to wait another cycle.

Inverted rows
Body wt * 10/10/10

Close grip bench
103 * 9/8/7/6 - piece of cake - might have to bump this up next cycle

Planks - maximum hold (50-60 secs) performed between close grip bench sets

Now to look forward to another BW deadlift and a BW squat attempt in a few days time! :cheers:

A now for something completely different. Sort of. Going to keep the 5/3/1 progression on main lifts, but use a "full-body" workout, rather than main lift + respective accessories. i.e. Upper body pull (1-2), upper body push (1-2), squat/deadlift, 5-10 mins for ego-exercises (optional!). Variations of squat and DL used on non-main lift days. Not that I wasn't progressing with the 5/3/1 (hence I'm still using it), just trying to keep things fresh!

A few unfortunate interruptions today led to a longer workout.

High pull (from floor)
81 * 8/7/8/8

Bench
103 * 5
114 * 5
125 * 5
125 * 7
125 * 5

Inv row
bw * 10/12/10/10

C/G bench
103 * 8/8/8/7

Goblet squat
33 * 10/10/10

What do I want from Santa? A nice bottle of port, some dark chocolate, a copy of 5/3/1...and now...new shorts. Got a little over enthusiastic whilst squatting tonight and practically split them in two. Notch it down as another benefit of lifting at home - no spectators.
