It’s complete! The ‘Hench’ training ebook is finally finished. The last photo’s were taken today, I have a small amount of editing to do and then I will start the publishing process. Watch this space for progress.
Due to time constraints I had to train early today, it was hard to get going, but still had a pretty good session.
Press 75kg x3x3x4 – jumping up 2.5kg from last week was a killer! I also found out from some of the other members that the different makes of weight plates (York, Olympic, Jungling etc) are slightly different in weight despite being labelled as the same! I guess the old spit and sawdust type gym isn’t always ideal, and when pressing today definitely noticed the difference as bar felt unbalanced so had to swap the plates.
Weighted chins 25kg x7x6 – still struggling to increase weight/reps with these, need to do more frequency work I think.
Weighted dips 15kg x12x10x8x6 – Again will jump up 5kg as felt strong on these
Romanian deadlift 120kg x5x5 – decided to only perform 2 sets of these and the third as conventional deadlift and just keep an eye on my form. I filmed the second set of romanian type to see how my technique is and feel I still need to tighten up.
Deadlift 157.5kg x6 – felt good, I think doing the R.D’s first helps me to get more of a feel of engaging my hamstrings & glutes before the lift.
Weighted decline sit-ups 20kg x10x10x10
Got 2 hours of spin to teach tonight, been a while so I think I’m going to be sore tomorrow!
