Did the gearbag competition shop for next weekend! A good solid brekkie then snacks all day to stay topped up! Half of this will probably come home with me, but I've all bases covered for quick calories between lifts next weekend! #sugar #water #carbs #quickcarbs #nuts #biltong #jerky #sodapop #jellies #chocolate #fatty

When the singlet doesn't split and you manage depth.

Last week 170kg was a #pb here's #181kg because there's clips on the inside and I'll take any fecking gram I can! #Paused #bench 65kg and #deadlift #160kg for 405kg #total which is 55kg more than my only ever full power #comp way back in 2014.
Nothing to do now only #eat, #sleep, #stretch and enjoy next weekend. Thanks to @jamesgoconnell and @assumptafeeney for your permanent boots in me hole. The Shed is a magical place!

Today I did a hang #power #clean after YEARS and ended up on my arse.
I've various niggles here and there but just have to be mindful of what movements I do.
Today was as the board, warm up, #explosive aspect with #Olympic #lift elements. #Strength aspects with front squats or #overhead #squats, I did a bit of both. I swapped #metcon for some #spinning #bike work as hips and shoulder are weary of such movements just now, and then a nice #mobility enhancing cool down. Why do one type of #class when you can have some of it all in one hour? Check out @oakgrove.leisure.centre

I'm not just #excited for this #comp, I'm excited for every one that comes after it too! New found #mobility and a will to push myself and #strive to be the #strongest that I can be, not as #strong as the strongest out there, just the #best that I can be!
Right now my #goal is simply to put up a set that #squatchamps want to feature! And there's a lot of #reps to be done between now and then! Oh and a 500 #total!

Haven't had one #glute #dom in this #comp prep.
Until that is I got my hips #dryneedle and they decided to do some #work yesterday. I feel like my #arse could loosen bolts.
Thanks for showing up #glutes!

I had to take a week off training. Spent a couple of hundred on treatment. Pec minor and sub scap strain means I have to widen grip. My ring finger is usually on the knurling.
Even with the widened grip I only have so many reps in me, so fuck it.
Jan 8th squat set was 60kg.
Feb 19th, lifetime PB of 170kg with wraps yes.

#Spuds, ribs, #wine, big #ginger man.
#squats tomorrow. Life is grand like.
We didn't really "do" valentines. This is so much better. #datenight #keepitsimple #ribs #buyirish #buylocal #butcher #meatandspuds # #treatyoself #lazydinner #outtathepaw #primal #meat

Suppose I better do some pauses.
55kg x 3 for loadsa sets! Suppose this will be my opener.
I know my bench really needs to improve drastically but I think all the reps and sets have paid off a little in this crazy short time. Did some speed deadlifts too at 100kg. We'll see how squat goes tomorrow! Tender chest, but we'll figure it out.
That's totally an arch too, not at all my belly.
