Fri 27th January 2012Squats
(just a light day, paused some of the reps at the bottom)Push Press
1x5x127.5kg (no belt, hook grip)
1x5x147.5kg (no belt, hook grip)
1x10x165kg (belt, over under)
hook grip+belt for these sets;
1x10x70kg +red super mini bands
1x10x90kg +red super mini bands
1x10x100kg +red super mini bands
We basically had the bands setup like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aN3h2LQphsk
just that we only have round DB's so put a 25kg plate inside each one to stop it rolling. Seemed pretty solid so done 2 sets with it, and decided it just wasn't enough tension (wanting to work on the top end more - wanted it light at the bottom, hard at top). So we put a blue small band in addition to the reds round the DBs. Already we could see the bands start to move the plates in a bit - as soon as i done the first rep the tension just pulled the DBs/plates in. So just had to put on more bar weight, didn't have time to play about with it.
When I was at Strength Shop a bit back, I much preferred the setup there; http://youtu.be/5i4BrHT2oxs?t=6m59s
1 block, extreme band tension. Will try this next week.
Anyway, no problems with anything really. Hook grip is sore but didn't fail. Didn't want it fucking up my main set though. 10 reps ain't too shabby at 165kg.
was there a time we weren't at war; when we knew what our hearts and hands were for?
