Hey Steve 293, looks like you are melting away in that heat. :D
Defrosting ha ha

Monday
WTF is it with me and the damned (previously loved) Power Squat Machine? I even went lighter ('only' 400kg)... one rep... tweak and yep a damned twinge again? Third time in what... 7 weeks (inc week off). Time for a change I think... hack squat show daddy some love.

I wore the same shoes last week (closed toe sports sandal) and they were fine but today... sweaty and my toes were sliding into the front. Boots next time for sure (zero effect on the workout just off putting).

Leg Press
to 700-kilos x 12 reps

Power Squat Machine
see above

Seated Leg Curls
to stack +5.5p x 15+3+2 reps

Leg Extension
to stack x 20 reps

Tuesday
My usual faffing about = a not great nights sleep + moody belly + slightly twinged back (I need to get a little manipulation soon I think) + looking at a pension plan that I can cash in / budgeting. So a busy-ish late start. Anyway... training went well lol

Two Hand Pinch
to set up (22.7kg) x 8 reps, 52.7kg x 3 reps, 77.7kg x 3 reps, 87.7kg x 3 reps, 97.7kg x 3 reps and then 105.2kg x 3 r/p reps
NB: every so often I need to stay with a level, do more reps and or another set of 3 x 1 r/p reps and THEN move up

The gym has a stand at the Aberdare Motorcycle Races. I'm doing the usual nail bending, book tearing etc. The main highlight is, as I practiced today, my bending a long piece of steel

Wednesday
My ass was DRAGGING all day at work. Legs Tuesday and a 12 hour shift...

Thursday
I was still feeling the effects today. However, I managed to bend that piece of steel (48x1.5x.5-inches) in practice for the upcoming event

Close Grip Bench Press
to 155-kilos x 4 x 1 reps (on rep 3 I hit one of the stirrup points... but ground it out)

Low Cable Rows
warming up the muscles to bend the steel.
12p x 8 reps, 17p x 8 reps

DOTBDL-TO
It should have been the adjustable but I left it at home
to 182.5-kilos x 3 r/p reps (wanted 4 but I was too damned tired)

Tuesday
Two Hand Pinch
upped the weight a fraction and ground out 3 (of 5) ugly ass singles which tore my skin a little (not a good idea two days out from an event).

Thursday
Only bench. The rest would have sapped me for Saturday and Sundays efforts
Close Grip Bench Press
to 157.5-kilos x 2 x 1 reps and then I did a 1 rep pause with 140-kilos and that was all she wrote.

Moody belly last night meant I dropped 5lbs bwt
