Tuesday
Possible competition in the Ukraine in September 2019 to consider. I'll think on it. Job first, money second, comp third.

Legs today and apart from the SSB work (only cos I've not done it in a long time) it was all 20 reps.

Leg Press
footplate x 20 reps, 80-kilos x 20 reps, 120-kilos x 20 reps, 160-kilos x 20 reps, 200-kilos x 20 reps. Wide duck feet splayed setting and super deep stroke. Inner thighs pumped

Safety Squat Bar Squats (SSB)
Depth was too a bench at just about parallel. The bar is either 20 or 25-kilos in weight. I'd zero intention of going heavy so as to work my stabilizers first. x 12 reps, +20-kilos x 12 reps, +40-kilos x 12 reps, +60-kilos x 12 reps

Seated Leg Curls
5p x 20 reps, 10p x 12 reps, 15p x 20 reps, stack x 1 reps - game over lol.

s/s with

Leg Extensions
5p x 20 reps, 10p x 12 reps, 15p x 20 reps

The walk to the supermarket was 'interesting' ha ha :D

Wednesday
Two appts in town (1120 and 1230) so...
Two hand pinch
Still on volume (might be fun to break - so I am told - the how many reps in 16 seconds (??) for 90-kilos record. It may well be mine from around 2007 or so. I'm told it was 13). So 20 reps again.
equ x 20 reps, +20-kilos (42.7kg) x 20 reps, +40-kilos (65.2kg) x 15+5 (brief rest) reps

Thursday
More twenty reps sets. There was also a lad competing this weekend who was being tanned up who I took some photos of for him. Then, like a dick, left my camera behind. The gym owner rescued in but left a handful of 'interesting' pics on it lol :D

Close grip bench press
bar x 20 reps, 50-kilos x 20 reps, 80-kilos x15+3+2 reps. Pumped

Lat pulldowns - v-handle
8p x 20 reps, 11p x 20 reps, 15p x 20 reps I might have had a little more in me but was pushing the clock

Double overhand thick bar deadlifts (thumb over for most part)
The last set was a KILLER. 'Er Indoors' (the GF) and I went for a drive/walk after and the ride back... my back didn't like me at all lol. At some point, as per the Ukraine events, I'd like to hit 170-180-kilos x 20 reps (in 75 seconds)

bar x 20 reps (10kg), 50-kilos x 20 reps, 70-kilos x 20 reps, 90-kilos x 20 reps. Even though I knew I might moan about it after... 110-kilos x 13+4+3 reps. All ball busters. Huffing, puffing, bordering on pukey and shaky ha ha :D

Wednesday
I had a LOT on yesterday so the only way to stay on schedule was to start early. So I was up at 4am, did my PC stuff and then was at the gym, at 6.30am. That's the earliest I've managed that (it opens at 6am 3 days a week). The first half I was running on yesterdays food before the second half kicked in from my 5am or so breakfast.

One problem was NOT LOOKING IN MY TRAINING DIARY!! Hence a few muck ups :)

Close Grip Bench Press - volume
bar x 20 reps, 65-kilos (should have been 55) x 20 reps then 85-kilos x 15+3+2 reps (killers too ha ha)

One Arm Dumbbell Rows
32.5-kilos x 20 reps, 42.5-kilos x 20 reps then 52.5-kiklos x 20 reps

Double Overhand Thick Bar Deadlifts
bar x 20 reps, 50-kilos x 20 reps, 95-kilos x 20 reps. Then I loaded 130 before the penny dropped and loaded 115-kilos x 10 reps, paused, did another 10 reps.
