    Pulls looked good Gaz, I'd say you had at least 3-5 reps with the 357 set.

    agreed. Solid pull though.

    with your BBB deads...I don't know if you need to be hyperextending that much. Quality session, Gaz.

    Thanks Brian! I'd hope I could have about 5 reps with that on a good day as, if you look back a few pages, I did a triple with 180kg(396lbs) a few weeks back.

    Thanks Rileigh! Didn't feel particularly heavy, tbh, though singles rarely bother me - it's when I try to get reps with reasonably heavy weights that my form begins to break down.

    Thanks Tom! Will hopefully get a vid up of some heavier pulls this cycle, 180/190kg maybe.

    Thanks Hayden!!

    Really suffering this morning - had to get out of bed at 6:30am as got struck with a horrendous pain square between my shoulder blades. Just had a half hour contrast shower and took two paracetamol (all we have as we're on a weekend holiday, didn't bring much with us) and it's eased off a little, not crippling now, merely uncomfortable.

    Dobn't know what brought it about. I did sleep on top of the covers (the room was really warm to begin with) so could possibly have caught a draught on it.

    Or maybe during one of my DL sets yesterday I had my shoulder blades pinched without knowing and pulled it, for it to only start hurting this morning?

    I don't know, either way I'm glad it's deload week, not in till Monday for Squats. Gonna try and hunt down some ibuprofen and deep heat from a local store.

    Still sore today, but a bit better. Contrast showers definitely helping, as are the ibuprofen and deep heat.

    Will be home this afternoon, so will do some foam-rolling later.

    Doesn't feel too serious as it seems to get better throughout the day, only seems to be hurting first thing in the morning after not using it for ages. Taking it easy this week, so hoping it'll be healed up for the next cycle in time to get heavier for the meet.

    Cheers Brian! Less than a month away, it was a last minute decision to enter it, haha.

    Feels like it's healing up pretty quick, would hope it's gone by the end of the week. Doesn't seem to hurt at all when I'm using it, just when resting/slouching/lying in bed.

    Deload Squats

    Squats:

    ?xbar
    5x40(88)
    5x60(132)
    5x70(154)
    5x85(187)


    BBB:

    10x72.5(160)
    10x72.5(160)
    10x72.5(160)
    10x72.5(160)
    10x72.5(160)


    Leg Curls:

    10x25(55)
    10x25(55)
    10x25(55)


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

    Felt great after that session, really relaxed. Strained lat didn't hurt at all, it only seems to be hurting now when I sit down (like now, typing on this).

    Still hate leg curls on the lying down leg curl machine. Might do SLDLs or GMs instead to try to hit hams.

    SLDL have helped me a ton Gaz. I don't even do them heavy, I actually do them quite light and just make sure I get a good stretch from it.

    Cheers guys, will deffo try some next Squat day. Back feels great so far today, though pec aches a bit in the car. Same side as strained lat, so I imagine it's linked in somehow. No biggy, as long as it doesn't affect benching tomorrow.

    Cheers, Rob, but I wear jogging bottoms when trainng, so hopefully it won't be an issue. We'll see though.

    If it gets that Luna seal of approval, then it's good enough for me.

    Sweltering hot here in England today. Sweating like a rapist in the gym.

    Got in, got work done, go out, very quick and easy.

    Worried about straining Lat again, so didn't do any Rows, instead I did some light, easy lat pulldowns.

    Missed out on Overhead day on Sunday, so got my assistance in from that too, tri pds and curls. Got a curl PR to boot, wooh!

    Maybe you're getting the heat wave we just had here in Nova Scotia. Was crazy hot here all weekend - was nice for the long weekend.

    Good light and easy deload session Gaz!

    Cheers Rileigh. And yeah, warm again today. Will have to go out on the bike, take advantage.

    Also, Push n Pull Competition that was scheduled for next month has been cancelled Lack of interest apparently. Told them to put that entry fee towards the new competition they're trying to set up for later in the year, rather than messing around sending it me back.

    Sucks about the comp, man. On the bright side though, more time to train means bigger numbers when it's rescheduled.
