Bench Press - paused with the fat bar
worked up to
1 x 90kgs
6 x 5 x 75kgs

10 x 60kgs
10 x 60kgs
8 x 60kgs

Seated Cable Rows
4 sets of reps

Facepulls
4 x 12

Was supposed to be legs today, but my groin was feeling a little tight after doing some Goblet Squats at home yesterday. As for my bench press, I've decided to follow one of the rep schemes from the article I linked in the GF. I'll run it for 8 weeks, then shoot for some rep PR's and then try a new 1RM. I'll do the same for Front Squats. Press day will be volume and deadlift day will be hitting some heavy weights.

3 x 2 x 87.5kgs

CG Neutral Chins/Press *superset
4 x 6 x 5kgs/4 x 9 x 40kgs

New Bench 1RM max. Hit 95kgs easy, so did 100kgs which was also easy. Then told myself to stop stopping at 100kgs, so I went for 102.5kgs. Lost balance on the way up so it was a little ugly, 105kgs will be next. In the meantime I have some rep PR's to hit.
