Squats were effortless, even went for a short pause on the last rep. Huge improvement in my push press. Haven't benched in ages but at least my overhead is improving.

Looks like we're in a race when it comes to the strict press! Have you got any specific objectives regarding this lift?

Short term is just to get my bodyweight overhead. Will be some sort of push press. Strict press not really got any goals, happy as long as I'm making some progress. I used to bench a lot and neglect overhead but stince starting my new job it's the complete opposite. Seeing improvements because of it :)

My secret (well...) long-term goal is to get a bodyweight strict press. I've found out I really like overhead movements, and the strict press is sooooo challenging :D

Yeah I'm getting stronger across the board as well, was talking to my mate about this. Whether on purpose or by accident we're always rotating what exercises we go heavy on every week, but also don't do crazy volume with any lifts so seem to be able to sustain staying so close to maxes all the time :) Not to mention putting on weight slowly :D


Fri 7th July 2012
Bodyweight = 85.7kg

Log
5x50kg
3x60kg
1x65kg
3x70kg (was only going to double it but felt really easy)
7x60kg

Farmers
12m, 95kg each hand
Run 1 - 8:43s
Run 2 - 7:41s
Run 3 - 7:88s

Yoke
40m (4x10m), 200kg, 55:08s

18" Deadlifts (belt)
1x3x190kg
1x3x210kg
1x3x230kg

Done 18" whilst everyone else done sled/circus DB/stones cause I missed it on Wednesday, wish I'd just went with the flow cause back feels a bit dodgy. Not terrible but I like to avoid it when possible. But anyway, decent numbers across the board. First time doing log at start of June, 70kg was an absolute 1RM and could only rep out 60kg for about 4. So big improvement there.
