Pressing helped my bench quite a bit, and 2xbw is a sweet squat goal. Nice stuff...

Front squat (no belt)
5x5x82.5kg

Bench
5x5x69kg (made up the weight with collars)

OHP

Wednesday - Saturday I'd been getting stomach aches after most times I was eating. Last night (saturday) it started to feel better. But anyway, this workout was a pain in the arse. It didn't really affect anything during the sets but I was drained before, during and after workout so didn't bother with assistance exercises. Done some cable and BB curls Saturday night.

Weighed in at 83.3kg this morning for my new year weight (183lbs). 13st 1lb

2012 goals;

190kg squat
100kg bench (touch & go)
250kg deadlift
70kg ohp (strict)
BW Push Press

Lol, that "stand up now" almost sounds like Plattdeutsch.
Like "steh op nu" or so (no I don´t speak Plattdeutsch at all, just sounds like it).

195 kg SQ, 130 kg Bench, 245 kg DL, 200 kg SQ w/ wraps

Long Term Goals:
@ 75 kg: SQ - 252,5 kg, SQ w/ Wraps - 267,5 kg, DL - 307,5 kg, Total (w/ and w/o Wraps) - 710

Sun 8th January 2012
30 mins on stationary bike

Mon 9th January 2012
Bodyweight = 83.5kg

Lunchtime - 30 mins on stationary bike

PM...

Squats (with belt)
1x2x135kg
1x4x145kg
1x4x150kg

Bench
2x4x72.5kg
1x4x75kg
1x5x75kg

Push Press
5x5x57.5kg

Weighted dips
5,5,3 +20kg

Plank
2 mins

Today was one of those workouts I just had no energy before I started. I didn't even wake up properly till after squatting. My last rep at 150kg was a disaster. My left hip flexor was tight as fuck from a static squat hold yesterday, when i hit the bottom of the squat i kinda leaned to one side and too far forward, struggled but got it up. Someone said it rolled on my back a bit as well but I didn't feel it. Real real happy with the numbers though.

Bench felt 10x better than friday. Push press I struggled with the last rep on 3rd set, didn't hit the leg drive properly. Dips I'll need to deload a bit and build back upto this. I'll get it in a few weeks, was just down to barely doing them over xmas.

Forgot to mention closed the #1 Captains of Crush gripper with both hands easily in the middle of workout, someone had it in. They'd had it a couple of years though so it'd have been easy compared to a new one.

Wed 11th January 2012

Deadlift (with belt)
1x2x190kg
1x1x202.5kg
1x1x217.5kg
3x3x160kg

Standing Kroc rows
2x10 each hand with 40kg dumbbell

Chins
8, 6, then 3 wide grip pullups

Close grip lat pulldowns
8,6 x60kg, 13 x45kg

Totally fell short of what I wanted to deadlift this cycle but fuck it, still decent.



My lockout needs a shit tonne of work. This coming cycle I'm actually going to do something about it. Speed work at 160kg was fucking rapid pulling.
