    Friday

    Moved house.




    Was wondering how I'd fit my workout in but I'm glad now that I didn't bother. Lifting heavy things up and down stairs all day was enough for me.

    Monday

    Squat 115kg 3x5
    Press 52kg 3x5
    Chins 2 2 1

    Decided I'm going to switch to chins and pullups instead of power cleans for a while. Clearly chins are something I need to work on!

    Dude you hit 117.5 on the squats. Good effort. I fucked up my bench at 82.5- sick and form was a little shitty. Hit 55x3x5 on the press today. Yew!

    Cheers. I can't wait to get 120kg on the bar tomorrow!

    Nice pressing. I've never gotten past 55kg for 3 sets. I'm trying to microload from 50kg to get past it, only problem is the smallest plates in the gym are 1kg each. I could do with two .5kg plates

    ...or ideally, two .625kg plates! ...ie to be able to add 1.25kg at a time

    starting strength nutrition camp
    Go to magnet mart or bunnings. Get some big ass washers that are slightly larger than the barbell size. Weigh one, and drill holes out of it to make it the desired weight. Should fit snug and with a pair of scales and enough holes, you'll have an accurate microweight. If thyre light, glue them together and then drill.Spraypaint black, and get strong!!

    Yeah I find press has a significant correlation with bodyweight. I weighed in at 98kg when I pressed 55. Try increasing your food intake?
