Monday 24th September:
Weighted Pull Ups
Had a few days off due to going to the shack for a few days, I think the R&R helped as I'd been getting sore in the right front delt/upper bicep which I worked out was from catching the weight after a power clean as I was letting the tension out of my shoulders before dropping the bar. Squats felt tight after a few days off and 90kg felt relatively heavy. Overhead press felt great, really great, it was the first time I've got 3x5 of 60kg out so a PB for the day is always good! Deadlifts felt awesome too, up to the 115kg set I was just ploughing through, the 135kg felt a lot lighter then I thought it would so I hope to go beyond my PB of 5x140kg soon! Decided spontaneously to go with weight pull ups, didn't realise I would go so well with them, I think I'll aim for 5x5x5kg then step up to 7.5kg and so on now! Hoping to get some pesky weight off soon too, I've gained 10kg since January, unfortunately not all muscle, though I am noticing changes in my musculature through the arms and legs, I've gained a considerable amount of fat back around the belly, so getting back into some cardio with some interval training 2 to 3 times a week and trying to eat "cleaner"!
