Thursday
Laine est arrive. But did not lift lol. Still, in spite of various niggles, weighs 304lbs (21st 10 in Imperial).

As with yesterdays I tweaked everything down in lieu of the week off and the cough etc I've been fighting
Close Grip Bench
to 140-kilos x 4 x 1 reps (first not as good as the last)

Iso Pulldowns
to 60-kilos x 8 reps

DOTBDLTL (Laine watching)
to 180-kilo x 3 x 3 reps (lower back spasm after food once or twice)

Adj Thick Bar
to
LH: 130-kilos x 2 x 3 reps
RH: 140-kilos x 2 x 3 reps

Loaded Millennium Dumbbell in Laine's car then off for two mixed grills. His didn't touch the sides (hence being 3014lbs ha ha). It was my turn as he'd paid for a couple of Chinese buffets back in the day

Good times, huh Steve. :)

So is Laine transporting the Millenium Dumbbell to the guy you sold it to? Anyway, I hope he's doing well and it wasn't an injury that kept him from training and I hope you're starting to feel better. Even when not 100%, your lifts still beat the heck outta mine, lol.
