    Wednesday Oct 24th 2012 - Deadlift Day

    Deadlift (and equipped deadlift, Titan NXG Centurion squat suit)

    70kg (154 lbs) x 5
    120kg (265 lbs) x 5
    160kg (352 lbs) x 3
    190kg (419 lbs) x 1
    215kg (474 lbs) x 1
    232.5kg (513 lbs) x F,F
    232.5kg (513 lbs) x 1 (squat suit on)
    240kg (539 lbs) x 1 (squat suit on)
    215kg (474 lbs) x 1,1,1,1,1

    Rather displeased with that, thought I should be able to get 2.5kg more than last week. Pleased that I got it with the suit on and it wasn't all that hard. The suit helps with the start off the floor of course, which is where I fail. The failed attempts took rather a lot out of me and the final 215 singles were hard.

    60kg (132 lbs) x 8

    Not bad. Aiming for a 145kg opener and M2 Icelandic record, hoping for 160ish.

    BW x 14

    The benching took a lot of time and I was late.

    Here's a video of my 240kg (529 lbs) deadlift from last Wednesday, taken without my knowledge. Presumably you have to be on Facebook to see it.

    Friday Nov 2nd 2012 - Deadlift Day

    I am so pissed off I don't really want to post this.

    Deadlift

    70kg (154 lbs) x 5
    120kg (265 lbs) x 5
    160kg (252 lbs) x 3
    190kg (419 lbs) x 1
    220kg (485 lbs) x 1
    250kg (551 lbs) x F,F (suit on)
    245kg (540 lbs) x F (suit on)
    220kg (485 lbs) x F

    I don't know, I felt ready, but it wasn't happening. I was all alone in the gym which makes it hard to psych up for a really good lift, that might make a small difference, maybe. 242.5kg next week. I strained too long on the first attempt. I got it maybe 5cm (2") off the floor and pulled a little longer than I should have. I was very tired after that.

    Press

    50kg (110 lbs) x 5
    60kg (132 lbs) x 5
    65kg (143 lbs) x 3
    70kg (154 lbs) x 1
    75kg (165 lbs) x 1
    80kg (176 lbs) x F,F
    75kg (165 lbs) x 2

    Bah!

    Bench Press

    60kg (132 lbs) x 8
    100kg (220 lbs) x 3
    120kg (265 lbs) x 4,4,4,3

    Power Snatch

    40kg (88 lbs) x 3
    50kg (110 lbs) x 3

    70kg (154 lbs) x 1,1
