Really good session today,despite covering Spin yesterday I felt full of energy! I put it down to getting a good nights sleep and plenty to eat (ate dinner about an hour before teaching, and had a big meal when I got home :)).

Stiff-Legged Deadlift 50kg x5, 60kg x20 (dropped weight on these to focus on form, also using as a warm-up for deadlifts, so staying shy of failure)
Sumo Deadlift 85kg x5, 97.5kg x5, 110kg x15, 85kg x10 then Hamstring curls (6) x10+4+3RP
Decided to add in some ‘V’ pulldown to chest (level 11) x12+6+4 and weighted dips 10kg x18+8+4RP
Struggled to get going today, taught 3 SPIN classes in last two days so a bit stiff!

Bicep Curls 30kg x5, 36kg x7+3+3RP
Stiff-Legged Deadlift 97.5kg x5, 120kg x5 – Going to lower weight on these, started too heavy and not feeling it much in the hamstrings, it’s more of a Romanian Deadlift
Sumo Deadlift 95kg x5, 107.5kg x3, 120kg x8 then 95kg x10
Lying Hamstring Curls (5) x14+5+4RP
Threw in some ‘V’ grip pulldowns (11) x11+5+4RP

Sumo Deadlift 90kg x3, 100kg x3, 113.5kg x13 then 90kg x10 – Still working on the technique for these, definitely easier on the lower back, but still not feeling right – I’m adjusting feet position each session till I can work out the best for me and practicing as part of my warm-ups every session.
Bicep Curls 22.5kg x5, 31kg x10+4+3RP
Stiff-Legged Deadlifts 105kg x9+2+1RP – Lower back was killing me so I know the form is definitely an issue on these, especially after doing the Sumo-Deadlifts – I’m thinking about swapping them out for Good Mornings or Pull-Throughs ..
