    Yes mate! Biggest previous lift was 160kg for one rep, several months ago. We're talking like a 45-50lb PR, easily.

    I think we can safely say that my back has healed up okay, haha!

    Not sure where the strength came from. I've been doing more legwork and I tried to focus more on pulling backwards rather than upwards and tucking my shoulder blades into my back pockets, if you know what I mean.

    Still stoked about it now, I wasn't expecting to hit that for another month or so.

    Nice pull. Wish I could still get big prs like that.

    Good you're doing rows the better way. I always do each rep from a dead stop also. I think it is more useful that way.
    Best competition lifts:
    650lbs. raw squat
    441lbs. raw bench
    580lbs. raw deadlift

    Thanks April! Only been lifting a year, so milking the newbie gains for all they're worth, haha.

    And yeah - I find that doing my rows like that feels a lot less stressful on my lower back and keeps me fresh for each rep, stopping me from cheating.

    Cheers matey! Be a while before I'm there, but it'll be fun trying, haha!

    Main goals in the short term are Squat 3plates for reps and bench 2plates for reps. Be happy when I get those.

    Thanks all! Don't know whether to take this week off as a deload or not now. I was off ill last week and didn't train at all - guess that's pretty much a deload!

    Listen to your body. If you feel like you need a deload then go for it.

    I think I will, Brian. My left shoulder is still really sore from all the pressing and dips on Weds. Just don't want to aggravate it. My back feels great, but wanna take it easy now I've set that PR, then get back on it the week after. Just do a high-rep, low-weight week to keep the blood flowing.

    Thanks Tom, it felt great. I didn't think I'd get it this soon as I still feel like such a beginner compared to everyone on here.

    Deloading!!

    Squats:

    15x60(132)
    15x80(176)


    Leg Press:

    15x100(220)
    15x150(330)


    Calf Raise:

    15x50(110)
    15x70(154)
    22x91(200)


    Hamstring Curls:

    15x30(66)
    15x30(66)


    Abs:

    3x10 Situps
    3x20sec Planks


    Treadmill walking 20mins


    ----------
    Summary:

    Really good session, felt good to get some reps out.

    Shoulder's still niggling me from last week. Hurts to lie on it at night and sometimes twinges when I perform pressing motions with it. I think I definitely overworked it. Good job it's deload week this week!

    Gonna nuke it with ibuprofen and skip the dips on Weds, keeping bench and overhead very light.

    Had a read up on the symptoms - similar to those of torn rotator cuff. However, from what I've read rotator cuff injuries are very painful and persistent, whereas this is only moderate and intermittent pain, making me think it's already starting to heal up after a few days. Think it's worse than a pull, probably some kind of tear, but not too serious from the feel of it.
