This is going to be super rant-y. Tl;dr: I PBed in bench today and people at the gym don’t know common courtesy.
Woke up feeling absolutely awful because of the heat, which was made worse because the windows were kept closed from the storm last night. Eczema has been flaring all week as well. Tried to sleep off the crappy headache before sucking it up to go and train in the afternoon. 😔
6x1 45kg clean and jerks
3x3 50kg double pause clean pulls
4x4 40kg bench press, then AMRAP
4x5 95kg deadlifts (last two sets)
Jerks made me pretty sad. I tried to move my feet out instead of doing the tightrope stance I usually take, but just couldn’t quite get it. Pressed out a few of them as well. 😩 There was a guy that kept walking into my view between his squat sets to stare at himself in the mirror despite there being another one perpendicular to that. 🤦🏻♀️ Fuck’s sake.
More of that happened during my deadlifts when a GROUP of people (I’m assuming a PT and four of her clients) decided to start bicep curling and rowing directly in front of me despite the rest of the lifting space being available (you can even see one of the barbells within shot of the video of my 3rd set). I lost my patience after that and told them to use the other space available, but then they just left anyway because they were just messing about. 😡
Deadlifts themselves were mostly alright, except I was sweating enough that the bar kept sticking to my thighs and even my hookgrip was going from it. Back was rounding a bit as a result. Better get some talc. 🤷♀️
All the above said though, I managed to PB my bench by quite a bit today (featuring the other half as my spotter) - managed 11 reps at 40kg after the initial working sets! Didn’t think I could have managed more than 10, so that was a pleasant surprise. Happy that they looked pretty alright up until the 10th rep as well, though they’re not quite comp pauses because I rushed them, heh.

Don’t live average, build your own legacy. Let’s kill this next week, fam🙏
April ➡️ May
100lb ➡️ 105lb
SAD! Saki ➡️ Happayyy Saki
Normal squat stance ➡️ Weirdly narrow squat stance that freaks people out
After a weekend of moving with a dash of madness, came in to do a very very quick shoulder session before work... do what you can to take one step closer to the goal... 💪🏼
Having some fun after the gym. I haven’t played ball in a few months. Weights and work sometimes get in the way. #life
Gotta get right and ready for @picq36 @bmmccain28
I have ordered some gymshark clothes:)
I make these videos so I can hopefully give some of you insight on my different training methods and tempo’s used so you can bust out of whatever plateau that you might be stuck in. We are a community. I want to see us all grow.
Equipment Used: Dumbbells, Hammer Strength Machines, and Cable Machines.
Training Method: Heavy to moderate to light
Heavy weight, compound exercises, 8-12 rep sets (slow negative on last rep) until my shoulders are smoked.
Moderate weight, compound and isolation exercises, 20 rep sets until my shoulders are smoked.
Lightweight, compound and isolation exercises, 30-50 rep sets until I have nothing left in the tank and I can’t do one more rep. Feel those shoulders tear down and burn.
Doomed by Bring Me The Horizon
1x1 then 6x4 back off
Rpe: sub 6?
I'm a sumo puller but working on my conventional and cant believe how this moved.
Sentadillas nocturnas para terminar la semana. Aún falta la banca y remos 🤣🤣🤣.■
🇸🇪 böj för att avsluta veckan på bästa sätt! Men bänk och rodd fattas 🤣🤣🤣
Client/boyfriend appreciation post @marcelopeto
Marcelo started the year completing a 100 day push up and plank challenge which increased his upper body and core strength tenfold. He has been able to complete exercises he never though possible with a previous lower back injury that left him in pain for years. We have worked together to strengthen his body as a whole and will continue to do so.
While this video is not of a PB per se, as he has benched a PB of 130kgs this is a PB as he is currently doing a lot of upper body training with fat gripz. //
increase muscle activation as the thicker handles require more muscle recruitment through the hands, forearms and upper body. It also requires more concentration as it’s a very different feeling.
This week challenge yourself, change your hand position, add fat grips, increase your weight or intensity. Don’t allow the body to plateau but encourage it to push harder 👊🏽
