it's pretty much what you'd expect. Tons of chest work while putting everything else on maintenance.

So I did. How strange. Thanks for that.

Doc, could you please remove the offending posts I seem to have placed in Rob T's log? Thanks.

Cheers Doc.

Rob, I've just seen the message you sent. Unfortunately I can't have you stealing my glory. :grin:

I saw you were doing deficit DLs. Just say that Cressey has a blog post, something negative about them, but I didn't read it. It might be interesting. It might not be.

He's talking about anything over a 3" deficit, I only use about 1". I stand on a 45 plate.

Thanks though.

And many powerlifters still recommend the deficit deadlift if you have the mobility as means of helping you improve the starting pull from the floor. I still understand Cressey's point, but I haven't had a problem this far.

First cycle finished. Here's the deets.

Incline Press

3 week - 5 x 65kgs = 73kgs
5 week - 6 x 62.5kgs = 73kgs
1 week - 5 x 67.5kgs = 76kgs

Press

3 week - 5 x 50kgs = 56kgs
5 week - 8 x 47.5kgs = 59kgs
1 week - 6 x 52.5kgs = 61kgs

Front Squat

3 week - 8 x 95kgs = 118kgs
5 week - 8 x 90kgs = 112kgs
1 week - 6 x 100kgs = 116kgs

My pressing went up through the cycle, but my front squats went down. As I said in my log, I started a new job after week 3 which I cycle to, so I would assume the cycling is having a slight impact here. Anyhow, 100 x 6 was a rep PR and brings me a step closer to my goal of 100 x 10. Next cycle I shall add deadlifts into the mix.

using some alright numbers these days Philip. Finally got that 100k bench I see! Not bad, don't think I could keep up with you these days.

But that won't last Phil. I'm back to grind you into tiny bits and drink you in a shake.

I don't think Phil is as grindable as he was a couple of years ago!

Bob - I've benched 100kgs for a double a while ago, maybe a couple of years now. I decided a little while ago to do all my pressing with a pause, not long; just a count of one, but enough so there is no bounce. It makes all the difference. My pressing has been up and down over the last year, but finally it seems to be on an upward trajectory. Squats and deadlifts always keep going up, I put front squats in a while ago and have made some steady progress. The goal is 10 x 100kgs. Hopefully by the end of march I'll be there.
