What type of roof do you have Steve? Is it pitched with slate or tile?Or is it a flat roof with bitumen? I used to be a roofer so am interested.

Friday
Timing of food, rest and the like was spot on so when I saw the weights flying on the bench press (training with Dom and Ken today) I upped it and took full advantage of the 'good day in the gym' feeling.

Close Grip Bench Press
Heavy sets only: I practically threw the 145-kilos up so I decided to keep going and see what happened. 145-kilos x 1, 150-kilos x 1, 155-kilos x 1, 157.5-kilos (started to slow here) and 160-kilos x 1 (just and with a needed touch from Ken)

Low Cable Row
to the stack +5.5p x 15 reps

One Hand Deadlifts
Worked on form and kept back tight

Hi Steve, i always found that 3 going in turn was the perfect set up for benching. At the club where i started even if guys were doing different programs there were always 3 working together on the bench press.
