I kept waking up through the night with the idea of hitting this particular personal target. And so it was. I kept the warm up sets and reps brief and used knee wraps for the first time in a couple of years.
Bar x 20 reps, 60-kilos x 8 reps, 140-kilos x 3 reps, 220-kilos x 1 rep (support belt only) and then 340-kilos x 1 rep (could have done two. Support belt, lifting belt and knee wraps on). 340kg is 748lbs and marks an all time 1 rep max PB

Leg Press
to 766-kilos x 8 reps

Leg Extensions
to 11p + 2.5-kilos x 11 reps

Lying Leg Curls

Friday
Little tired. Mild toothache again. But... the bench flew up!!

Close Grip Bench Press
I'd aimed to hit 160kg or 352lbs this time around but every single rep was in the groove so we kept going. I stopped at 170kg or 374lbs

I'll do the wrist roller later then I'm having a week off
