    Tuesday am
    I need to do some calculations of percentage of max because, as shown by today's workout, the both times I go t to around 170-kilos on either bar I hit a wall. The target will be 200-210-kilos / 440-462lbs


    2.5-inch thick (hollow) d/o sumo deadlift
    bar(14)+40-kilos x 6 reps, bar+90-kilos x 3 reps, bar+140 x 1 rep, bar+160-kilos (174) x 1 rep (was dizzy after)


    2-inch thick (solid) d/o sumo deadlift
    bar+40-kilos (70) x 1 rep, bar+ 80-kilos (110) x 1 rep, bar+120-kilos (150) x 1 rep, bar+140-kilos (170) x 0 reps (see above)

    It was all right but I wanted a tad more. I'm probably training too often at the mo but so much to do and not enough time to do it all.

    Simple a tad over 2 (2.2 or 2.2046). So 1-kilo equals 2.2lbs, 50-kilos 110lbs and so on.

    Wednesday am
    Plate wrist curls
    B/H: 5-kilos x 6 reps, 7.5-kilos x 3 reps, 10-kilos x 3 reps
    L/H: 15-kilos in plates on L/pin x 2 x 3 reps, felt strong on this so upped it to a 15-kilo plate and did 2 reps (of 3)
    R/H: 15-kilos on L/pin x 3 reps, 15-kilo plate x 3, 15-kilo plate on L/pin x 2 (tried for 3 rep on both 1st and 2nd set), 2, 1
    In between attempts I had a few single rep attempts on the newly arrived 2" FBBC V-Bar

    R/Formulator work
    2.75-kilos x 10 reps, 5.5-kilos x 8 reps, 8.25-kilos x 8 reps, 9.25-kilos x 3 x 5 reps (on every one the first 4 went quick but the last slllloooowwww rep... that was hard).

    I did one attempt on the MM7 (dud) gripperwhich went to 3/4-inch. Considering I was working my hands hard on the other exercises I thought that was ok. But a few minutes later, having done the last working sets of the above I had another crack and got it to a 1/4-inch. I think it's doable and when I am rested, fresh, etc I'll crack it in half!!!

    With the MM7 dud in my grubby paws only 18 hours or so it's job done and onwards to the next. It wasn't going to be a gripper session but I wanted to get this done. As follows:
    Torsion Grippers
    usual warm ups
    L/H: BBGM x 3 x 1 reps, CoC 3 x 3 x 1 reps. Instead of the BBE I did the HG350 thus: 3 x 1 reps Tried a 4th missed so stopped

    R/H: BBE x 1 rep, HG350 x 1 rep, CoC 3.5 x 1 rep, BBSE x 1 rep, then 3 solid attempts inc a go at baby repping the MM7 dud. Job done.

    Thursday am
    Leg press
    0-kilos x 10 reps @, 40-kilos x 10 reps, 80-kilos x 20 reps, 120-kilos x 30 reps, 260-kilos x 50 reps... ouch ouch... pumped!

    Leg Curl
    25-kilos x 8 reps, 35-kilos x 8 reps, 45-kilos x 8 reps, 60-kilos x 2 x 7 reps (hard)

    Bwt: on GN scales 283lbs sans belt etc
    Thursday pm
    2HP
    Set up, as per is 21.7-kilos and set at 44mm. Usual warm ups then from +80-kilos x 1 rep, +82.5-kilos x 1 rep, plus 84-kilo x 1 rep, plus 85-kilos x 1 rep, plus 86-kilos x 1 rep, plus 87-kilos (108.7-kilos/239.64lbs total) x 1 rep. I still felt ok so tried for what would have been a new PB and gym record with plus 91-kilos or 112.7-kilos but this was firmly welded to the floor.

    Onwards. As I was working what is effectively a wide grip I thought I'd fry it with some blob work so...

    Blob
    easy work on the 20-kilo blob with either hand (3 x 1 reps). Then R/H: 25-kilo blob x 2 x 1 reps. Then tried, with the other hand adding a finger and a thumb, the 30-kilo blob. It took a couple of goes and I was power dropping so really not doing negatives. I dropped back to the 20-kilo and pulled it with the pink resistance band over the top to box height.

    Then, just for fun, I managed a few singles lifting the 20-kilo blob in the left and 25-kilo in the right but not to full height.
