    Patrick's 2010 time to get strong log

    Hi all.
    I've been seriously training for the last 4 months. My best lifts are
    Bench 120kg
    Trap bar deadlift 225kg
    Military press 87.5kg

    My goal is to get bigger and stronger.

    Today I did
    Bench 1x6 60kg, 1x5 80kg, 1x5 95kg, 2x5 90kg.

    Had way more to do but it's getting dark and I need to walk the dogs.

    Wow VERY crappy workout today. Even the barbell felt heavy.

    Bench 1rm@120kg
    50% 5x1, 60% 5x1, 70% 4x1, 75% 3x2, 80% 2x2,
    75% 3x2, 70% 4x1, 60% 6x1, 50% 8x1

    Glad heaps more to do byt my shoulders got extremely sore. Could barely lift my arms. Really weird as I haven't had shoulder pain in years.
    Really hope this isn't something to be worried about

    Pushed myself to the limit today.
    Did trap bar deadlifts 1x5 210kg. The 4th rep was a real grinder but the 5th was just beyond insane.
    Took me about half an hour just to recover from that.
    Doubled the strength of the post workout shake because I know my body needs it after that.
    That 5th rep was BY FAR the hardest I've ever pushed myself.
    Kinda scared for next weeks workout after that.

    Tested my bench 1rm. Got 125KG. 5KG PR, WOO HOO!

    Also did some rotator work as I'm putting my shoulders under a lot of stress with the kind of weights I'm lifting.

    I like the workouts, basic and abbreviated. Trap Bar Deadlifts are one of my favorite exercises. Are you more quad dominant or hamstring dominant with the Trap Bar? You might want to throw some lunges in if you are hamstring dominant, or throw some stiff leg deadlifts in if you are quad dominant.

    I'm definately more hamstring dominant. Since I can't barbell squat for the moment I bought a hip belt so my quads get some work.

    Tested my trap bar deadlift 1rm.
    Tried 240kg and failed then 235kg and failed.
    Last workout I got 210kgx5 so I should have been able to get the 235kg at least.
    Must be a weak day and I think I'm not training the deadlifts hard enough.
    From now on I'm going to do 3x3 Tuesday and Friday.
