Monday
What a fkin grind of a day. There's 7 more days training to do then four days rest (stretching and walking only). I'm also waiting on a call from the gym (now I'm back home) re them dropping off their old leg extension in lieu of their getting a new one. A nice addition to the home gym. After eating I crashed and had a nap. Feeling better already

Iso Press
to 87.5-kilos x 4 reps an arm

Hammer DB Curls
to 90-kilos x 9 reps @

TPD
to 17p +1 stacker plate x 9 reps

I forgot my loading pin so I'll train my stub work shortly

Coming close now Steve, everything where you planned it to be? Nice to have your own leg extension machine too.

Tuesday
So gym work is getting harder and harder. Rather than tear my skin up I decided to hit the pinch 2x today
Two Hand Pinch am
to 106.45-kilos x 1, 1, 2, 4, and 4 reps.

Two Hand Pinch pm
to 107.70-kilos x 1, 1, 3 and 3 (very nearly 4) reps

I'll be staying at 107.70-kilos and aiming to up the volume over the next 2-3 sessions

Last leg session before the competition. The only issue was I felt I could have done more reps on the power squat but for the sheer discomfort of the pads on my right shoulder.

Seated Leg Curls
to stack +6 stacker plates x 12 reps

The walk home after is always fun lol. Thighs rubbing together

Saturday
I got the call that my new (used) Leg Extension machine was on its way so having humped it in with 3 other guys to the foyer I spent a LOT of time and energy getting it into the home gym. So training was done later - I finished at 9pm

Two Hand Pinch
Great session. I decided to go as heavy as I could. As it happened I actually stopped a little short. Now back when I did my best ever work of 118+ kilos (4th best of all time) I hit 112 and 113 or so kilos in training (video on YT). Today I hit 116.45-kilos x 1 rep and felt like 117.70 was there. I've one more pinch session to do. All in all I feel like a platform 120+ is on target.
