Bench press: 3 sets of 5 reps on 95kg. Bit of a struggle with the last rep.
5 reps on bench press at 100kg. A pb. Time for a wine.
Yesterday, I struggled a bit with my bench press at 95 kilograms. Couldn’t get the last set of 5 reps; had to settle for 4. No big deal. Followed that with 6 sets of press and one set of chin-ups.
Today, I did my 3 x 5 reps of squats with 100 kilograms, followed by 3 x 5 reps of power clean with 55 kilograms. I know I’ve done something. Time for a cold beer!
Tomorrow, I hope to run.
Today was my day to work the lower body. I squeezed out 3 sets of full squats (as in ass to the grass) with 100kg on my back. Then I headed off to supervise at our harrier club meet—I didn’t run. Once back at home, I did four sets of power clean with up to 55kg.
It’s great how these compound exercises stress the whole body. I hate the term ‘core’, but that’s what they hit, aside from the legs of course.
