    Thanks all!

    Prob a great deal to do with the cardio.

    Alex is going to start me on a new program soon - Westside, with some added cardio.

    Will be starting it in the next three weeks or so.

    Expect PRs to be smashed.

    Better day today!

    Deadlifts:

    5x60(132)
    5x60(132)
    5x100(220)
    3x120(265)
    1x140(308)
    1x160(352)
    1x180(396)


    BB Rows:

    5x60(132)
    5x70(154)
    5x80(176)


    BB Hip Thrusts:

    10x60(132)
    10x60(132)
    10x60(132)


    Situps:

    10xbw
    10x+10(22)
    10x+20(44)


    Reverse Hypers:

    10xbar
    10x10(22)
    10x20(44)


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

    Just what I needed to cheer myself up with!

    Wrist hurt from 140kg onwards, but fought through it. Surprisingly, it didn't hurt on the last pull, 180kg. I think I might be able to work around it by fiddling with my setup, grip width etc, just to try to put less stress on it.

    Loads of ibuprofen helps, too.

    The next few weeks, whilst sorting out my mum's estate/selling the house/moving to a new place (again), I'm just going to be in cruise mode at the gym. I'm going to go in, have some fun, keep the blood pumping and see what comes.

    Once I'm settled into the new place (hopefully 3/4 weeks), Alex is starting me on Westside (or a variation there of). He's also getting me to find a Powerlifting Meet and a Race, both about six months away, that we can train for.

    I'll be able to commit to it fully, I'll have finances to stuff my face and buy extra gear (bands etc) and, hopefully, we'll be seeing huge PRs before Christmas.

    In the mean time, considering I've not deadlifted in a few weeks, I'm happy with a 4pps lift out of nowhere.

    Thanks both!

    I think my body's always responded better to heavy singles rather than doing triples and 5's. Don't know why.

    Good deal on the close grips, that movement is key for helping to bring your overall benching up.

    Squats!

    Squats:

    10xbw
    10xbw
    5x60(132)
    5x80(176)
    3x100(220)

    1x150(330)


    BB Hip Thrusts:

    10x60(132)
    10x80(176)
    10x100(220)


    Situps:

    Reverse Hyper:

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

    Another session where I came away feeling great!

    Working up with singles rather than lots of reps is really agreeing with me, I feel.

    Was in two minds about whether to go for the 150 or not, but I did. Between that and the 180kg DL the other day, some of the heaviest weight I've lifted in weeks. Very pleased.

    Thanks guys! Certainly enjoying the fact there's no pressure to hit numbers or reps.

    Tbh, was expecting it - rarely get several great sessions in a row, haha!

    Still, got in, did some work, that's all that matters.
