Monday
*Damn training was hard today. I'm talking ass draggingly so. I ate real well yesterday evening (16oz 'big daddy' rump steak from Aldi's, sweet potato and followed up with cheesecake) so was a little suprised to see a pound or two off the scale and me flagging. It may well be that the couple of PB's etc recently were a 'peak' for me and I need to change things up. I also got a warning twinge in my lower left back again. The only thing/s different was a little late start (like 30 mins) and I only had 1 coffee.

Leg Press
Usual warm ups and then 200kg x 18 reps, 400kg (felt heavy as above) x 18 and then I held back by doing one more than the last 'held back' set of last week with 700kg x 9.

Power Squat
My back feels like I might need to get a little osteo work done. Anyway zero probs with 150kg x 8 reps, 300kg x 8 reps and then fill blown WTF with the max at 460kg x 1 rep*. I wasn't gonna risk injury foolishly (I ignored the twinge the last time at rep 6 and carried on to the PB at 8 reps).

Seated Leg Curl
Again felt heavy (it being relative of course). 12p x 20 reps, 17p x 20 reps, stack +5.5p x 10 reps*

Leg Extensions
Zero issues here. No 2nd wind but job down. 10p x 20 reps, 15p x 20 reps, stack x 20 reps

Bwt: 293lbs* I honestly felt like I had eaten well and was wearing boots and jogging bottoms etc and yet 3-4lbs??

Hi Steve, yes we get those days when everything should go right but somehow does not.Then there are those other days you have no expectations and things really happen. Whatever we carry on regardless and come back to fight another day.
Regards.Peter.

And in a slightly different way

Tuesday
Another day of not chasing the reps over chasing the weight on Pinch and all the better for it. I had more in me. Apart from the warm ups all the other sets were 'hands off' every time between reps (so a few seconds rest-pause, reset, then go)
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 102.7kg x 3 reps (with a feeling of 2-3 more if I wanted it)
