Friday
Hanging out my ass today (exhausted). I went to bed tired and got up at 3.30am. I then did an hour setting up the Muscle Mob library (info elsewhere - to be added). Back to bed and managed another 45 mins nap (bad idea??)

Close Grip Bench Press
to a fail at 170kg. Perfectly fine warming up with half an eye on an attempt at 180kg but it bottomed out and I decided to ease off for today. the pump out after (30 reps with 60kg) was non-lock style and easy

Iso Lever Low Row
to 140kg x 6 reps @. Yeah DAMN heavy lol

Bwt: 22st 6lbs / 314lbs

Saturday am (in lieu of Friday pm)
Adjustable Thick bar
Upped the weight but it was an up and down session. Work got done. Work on project too

Monday
HAF session. Lots of rest and huffing and puffing. That's down to the weights, the trail walking yesterday and my insistence on doing hours of work on my new project (involving many journeys up and down the stairs with loads of magazines (like 40-60lb loads)). My right hip tie in feels stiff after

SSB Hatfield Squats
to 305kg x 3 reps - stick with this until I get at least 4-6 reps

Leg Press
to 572kg x 15 reps

Leg Extensions
to stack x 15 reps

Lying Leg Curls

Had a lie down after (30+ mins)

Tuesday
It's gonna be time to ease off the gas soon. Either drop way back down (did that a bit today) or have a rest as well. My right shoulder labrum has been sore since Friday, I've had a small strain under the right scapula and, as of yesterday, seem to have a minor strain to a tendon going into my right hip. Bizarrely, following this mornings workout and adjustments as I type this I feel good lol.

Close Grip Bench Press
bar x 20 reps and then 60kg x 3 x 15 reps (nice pump)

Low Cable Row
1/2 stack x 15 reps, 3/4 stack x 15 reps, stack +15kg x 12 reps

Huffed and puffed by recovered quickly and felt good after.

Started at 8.45 and done at 9.45. Rest now then project and podcast work followed by the PM workout.

Bwt: 315lbs
