    Genuine lol at that picture


    Got my new non-bent bar

    Bench
    Warm ups and mobility stuff
    Paused
    100 x 1
    110 x 1
    115 x 6
    120 x 4
    125 x 3

    Making good progress on the bench, without doubt the most consistent bench pressing I have ever done.

    Your bench disgusts me.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,561 ✭✭✭JJayoo


    AM session
    Benched in singles up to a 1RM
    140 x 1

    PM session
    BB OHP worked.up to 1RM
    97 x 1

    DB OHP
    30 x 15 x 5 sets

    Side raises

    Surprised with the OHP was expecting it to have dropped off but the new bar is helping me get really tight consistently.

    Do you ever deadlift. I'm too lazy to go back and check

    I haven't done a lot recently, but I have been playing around with different set ups trying to find one that feels comfortable. At some stage I will level out the floor in my shed and get some bumper plates.

    First off, I salute the PR.

    But, and I don't know what the reason is but the bar path seems to move forward halfway down. I only day it because it might mean your PR could be even heavier. It also seems like something I'm trying to correct myself but maybe for different reasons.
    Either way, colour me impressed.


    Tl;dr VERY STRONK!!

    I'd hazard a guess that the forward movement is probably down to trying to keep the chest up?Looks like the second the chest is no longer vertical is the same as when the forward movement starts.

    I was shown to set my torso angle as soon as I break at the knees and hips and keep the same angle all the way down. But what do I know - that was strong as fcuk

    That's what I was thinking myself. Because I'm prone to do it.

    But i should stfu since I can't squat that :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,561 ✭✭✭JJayoo


    will have to investigate wither it's a form issue and is present everytime I squat regardless off weight.

    Or wither it's just my form breaking down due to it being a max lift.

    It's not an issue either way. Not a big one at least. If it is just because you're in a bit of extension to keep the chest up, it's a simple fix that won't effect your lift negatively.

    Just as an example, in my own case, I was kicking back my hips and trying to keep my chest as upright meaning my back wasn't in a 'straight line', which kinda works against the tightness anyway and towards the bottom, that levelled put so it was more like I leaned forward on the bottom part. It's just not as strong a position.

    I only really appreciate this because I was doing it on Wednesday and have been trying to remind myself not to do it and it feels stronger.
