Front squat – 5 x 62.5kg, 3 x 70kg, 10 x 77.5kg
Around The Square – 3 x 4
Straight Leg DL – 5 x 10 x 50kg
Stomach Vacuums – 6 x 10 secs

I went quite aggressive here with the final set and was pleased to reach double figures. I might skip ahead again in 5/3/1 as I’m itching to lift something heavy.

16 Dec

Straight Leg DL – 5 x 52.5kg, 3 x 60kg, 6 x 67.5kg
Front Squat – 5 x 10 x 62.5kg
SL Calf Raises – 3 x 15 x BW

Grip was a problem again, I’ve started a protocol to improve it so hopefully not an issue too many more times. The jump to 62.5kg was tough, some pausing between reps is creeping in but I’m holding at 2 mins rest.

19 Dec

Running – 3 x 400m, 2 x 400m (3 mins / 5 mins)
Times: 1:20, 1:24, 1:20, 1:20, 1:20

The second rep was too slow a start and I never recovered. I thought my stopwatch didn’t start so I slowed down and then went through 100m in 22 secs. It was another tough last rep but I like to challenge my CV fitness.

Next week will be an easy one as I’m heavy legged
