Sunday 11th November 2012

Upped frequency press-ups to 18 yesterday (chins still at 7). Despite a late finish at work last night, had a good session today. Keeping the rest-pause for now – I’m enjoying the change. I started  a little lighter today on the incline bench, think I’ll do the same on the decline bench and overhead press over the next few sessions. I wasn’t entirely happy with the amount of reps (or technique) on the press last workout as I started too high on the weight. Ah well, you live and learn eh?

Incline Bench 90kg x8+3+2, then 62.5kg x12

Face Pulls (10) x17x17 – (Did these either side of Bench Press)

Kroc Rows 45kg x18

DB Flyes 15kg x15x9 (60s rest) – Right shoulder started feeling a little sore so stopped at two sets.

‘V’ Grip pulldown to chest (11) x10+4+3

Hack Squat 102.5kg x20 – These are starting to become a real test of willpower! I’m wondering how long I’ll be able to keep adding weight? I guess I’ll find out!

Thursday 1st November 2012

Another late finish at work last night (1am) so feeling it a bit today. Just did the main lifts and got out. Usual Thursday double spin this evening .. I’ll sleep well tonight!
Still no broadband for at least a week so no video – I’ll try and get another article or two up, but it’s a pain writing on my phone!
