Monday
Iso Press
to 80-kilos a side (3 reps L and 4 R). I had it in mind to not fanny about but it was a little bit too big of a jump.

Hammer DB Curls
to 80-kilos x 6 reps @

Tricep Pressdowns
to 16p x 6 reps
Cocked up with too high a starting weight and pre-ex'd the triceps via the press

Stub work
to set up +
L: 13-kilos x 4 x 1 reps (no skin tears today although it's sore)
R: 15.5-kilos x 4 x 1 reps
Both up a 1/4-kilo next time

Wednesday
Leg Press
to 650-kilos x 6 reps - the 'hole 3' thing really makes a difference to depth. Every Fkin Time lol.

Power Squat Machine
to 430-kilos x 6 reps (it'll only hold 460kg although I'll see if using the 50kg discs makes a difference on cycle). Powered the 1st 3 reps out.

Seated Leg Curls
to stack + 3 stacker plates x 12 reps

Leg Extensions
As above

Nail work
I need to use suede wraps as cloth kept slipping. As before the initial bend is easy

Awesome, much good fortune to you in the competition, Steve! As Peter said, we're all rooting for you! :)

The Pickaxe Lever to Rear Lift sounds interesting. Is it just an ordinary everyday pickaxe that'll be used or is it specially designed/made just for the competition?

It's a handle modified with a loading pin. Have a look at David Horne's YouTube page. They'll be a video on it
