It was ok, nothing special... The one I got was from Fry's but some of the other places
are trying another brand. So I'm going to have to taste that one also and then I'm going to
have to buy lots of the one I prefer so that they keep it in their assortment. :)

Thanks Rach, you're too kind. :) I'm not very happy with my oh press and I have to be a
little careful because it has messed up my neck in the past. One good thing about push press
I think, is that you can go heavier and be able to do the negative part of the movement with more
weight than you can with strict press.

Thanks, I appreciate it! I guess one should be a little respectful of heavy metal objects and make sure to be focused before one starts tossing them around, huh?
I've had a few close calls but haven't broken any body parts yet... *touch wood*

Did some lifting today (carefully):

DB bench press: 16 kg, 5 x 6.

Triceps cable pushdown: 36 kg x 8, 8, 7, 6.

Squat: 50 kg, 5 x 10.

SL deadlift: 50 kg, 3 x 10.

Pulldown: 50 kg, 3 x 8.

Neck raise: 20

Plank, side plank.

I'm thinking that if you don't get a move on and get a bench PB, I'm going to fly to Sweden for a weekend just to spot for you... :wink:

Yoga at home, 45 min. Almost finished packing for SA but haven't found my favourite swimming shorts yet. *worried*

I promise to give it a try tomorrow, otherwise I guess baldy and Talyn are going to have to help me out!
It would be kind of cool to get a PB on another continent. :)

Gentlemen, I did nail the 55 kg today! Failed the first attempt, second try went much better, felt like
57,5 kg could be possible on a good day. 60 kg - not yet but maybe in Tuscany? :)


Bench press: Bar x 10. 40 kg x 5. 45 kg x 3. 50 kg x 1. 55 kg x F + 1 (PB). 40 kg, 2 x 8.

Dips: 5, 4, 3, 2, 2.

Hip abduction: 77 kg, 3 x 8.

Seated calf raise: 35 kg, 3 x 10.

Deadlift: 60 kg x 5. 80 kg, 4 x 6.

Press: 25 kg x 6, 5, 4. Tired arms!

So this will be my last update before going to South Africa! I've located my swimming shorts
and can't wait to hang out with vegans and penguins on the beach. :mrgreen:

Outstanding work mate :) Bodyweight bench will be nailed soon.

I think we can convince you to have a go at 60kg in ZA, the weights are lighter in the southern-hemisphere.

Not long to go now!!!!!!

Maybe I should take the opportunity to try for 2BW deadlift then...
See you soon Talyn! :)
