25/20/13

Incline Press
3 x 55kgs
3 x 62.5kgs

Failed miserably, didn't even make the 3 reps I needed as the minimum. I had been thinking of resetting my training max for a few weeks, now seemed like a good time to do it.

10 x 60kgs
10 x 47.5kgs - all paused.

10 Chin-ups.

Short session due to time constraints, and then bad traffic getting to the gym.

30/10/13

Equals rep max!!

12 x 42.5kgs

Incline DB Press / T-Bar Rows *superset

A couple of sets of cable flies to finish for da pump.

Finally a rep PR on a pushing exercise, it's been a long time coming. It seems strange I could fail so epically a few days ago on the incline and now equal a rep PR whilst doing a standing press. I'll take it though. Now to break some PR's.

Been feeling sick this week. Got into the gym for a session on Fri Eve, hit 2 singles @140kgs squatting and a 190kg deadlift. The rest was just filler.

It's taken an age to shake this bug. Finally was able to pop to the gym. Did a complex with a 60kgs barbell -

1 clean - 5 front squats - 2 push press - 5 RDL's for 5 sets.

Worked up to 3 x 110kgs on a SB squat and 3 x 10 x 50kgs benching with feet up. All a bit haphazard but good to be back in the gym.
