Where Strength and Size are the only goals

Thursday 30th August 2012

Busy day today so got down the gym later than I usually train, however still had a good session. Warmed up again with GHR, decline crunches & chins – I don’t usually advocate crunches, but working on shortening my abs in line with strengthening hamstrings and stretching hip flexors/lower back as per previous posts about APT/Lordosis.

Press 72.5kg x5x5x7 – finally started filming  my lifts to check form so had to create a YouTube account to load them up to, you can see this here – definitely some leaning back going on as the set progresses, better tighten that up!

Weighted chins 25kg x6x6

Weighted dips 10kg x12x10x8x6 – nice to do some parallel bar dips over ring dips, felt much stronger so will jump the weight 5kg for next session

Romanian deadlift 100kg x5x5x5 – still felt like I had more in the tank, but didn’t want to overdo it as focusing more on technique. Rather than perform these as a substitute I’m going to use as heavy warm-ups for my deadlift set instead of powercleans and really focus on form.

Deadlift 157.5kg x4 – stopped after 4 as I don’t feel I could have kept tight form.

Roman chair leg raise x10x10x10 – keeping the rest down to 60s, going to increase to 12 next session before adding weight
