    Friday 20 October

    Training with Manveer.

    Front Squat
    Medium Day
    Straps, Rehband sleeves
    105 kg X 3 X 3

    X-1-3 Tempo Press
    ℞ Ten singles across
    55 kg X 1 X 10

    Couldn't load 56 kg as all the 0.5 kg plates were in use. Since the last go with 55 kg wasn't great I was happy to stick there.

    Sumo
    Belt, straps
    170 kg X 5
    Paused
    140 kg X 5 X 2


    Wednesday 25 October

    BW: 89.5 kg

    I felt sick and skipped Monday this week. Planning to train Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, but since the priority is press and back to back squat days are dumb I only did upper body stuff for this Wednesday morning session.

    X-1-3 Tempo Press
    ℞ Ten singles across
    55 kg X 1 X 10

    OK. Training in second gym with no microplates after a slight break so didn't try to increase the weight. They've actually got a 28mm bar with tolerable knurling now, so that's an improvement.

    3-1-3 Chin Grip Pulldown
    45 kg X 8 X 3

    Elbow / wrist pain.

    Elliptical
    20 minutes @ c. 125-130 bpm

    X-1-3 Tempo Press
    ℞ Ten singles across
    56 kg X 1 X 8

    Grindy and poor. Dropped weight after 8 singles as I thought I was in danger of failing.

    3-1-3 Chin Grip Pulldown
    47.5 kg X 8 X 3

    Good.

    Better - same as two weeks ago.

    ℞ Ten singles across

    Couldn't make it through 56 kg on the second go. Thinking of adding belt + wrist wraps.

    Thursday 2 November

    Front Squat
    Light Day
    Straps, Rehband sleeves
    95 kg X 3 X 3

    Knees sore.

    3-1-3 Tempo Bench
    40 kg X 1 X 10

    Cautiously trying bench again. This seemed OK at the time but my shoulder was a bit more sore after. I'll try again and monitor closely.

    Sumo
    Belt, straps
    170 kg X 5
    Paused
    150 kg X 5 X 2

    Took a heavier weight on the paused sets to aid working in with someone. Pauses were short and even so those sets were tough.

    Saturday 4 November

    Training in gym #2.

    Front Squat
    Medium Day
    Straps, Rehband sleeves
    105 kg X 3 X 3

    X-1-3 Tempo Press
    ℞ Ten singles across
    Belt
    55 kg X 1 X 10

    Added belt because my back's been a bit sore recently and I don't want that to bottleneck my shoulder rehab. Elbows got irritated.

    3-1-3 Chin Grip Pulldown
    45 kg X 8 X 3

    Don't like the pulldown machine in gym #2. Elbow pain.


    Monday 6 November

    Only going to manage 2 sessions this week.

    Front Squat
    Heavy Day
    Belt, straps, Rehband sleeves
    115 kg X 3 X 5

    Added belt for heavy day. +2.5 kg on last week. Tough but good.

    3-1-3 Tempo Bench
    ℞ Ten singles across
    41 kg X 1 X 10

    Still unsure how well I'm tolerating this. I think it was better than last time. It seems to feel better when I don't depress my shoulders too aggressively.

    3-1-3 Chin Grip Pulldown
    50 kg X 7 X 3

    Tough, couldn't get 8 reps. Elbows somewhat better today.
