275kg x3 reps wrapped Hi bar #squat as an overload after 255 x1 Hi bar RAW .
It looks like next Monday i Will go for 265kg RAW and Will add some heavier wrapped SQUATS to expose myself to Weights close to 300kg
2 weeks from now on Monday 3 July I am competing at WPC Euros in Finland with #britishpowerliftingunion team
Unfortunately monolifts I have ordered back in October 2016 haven't arrived, and my next supplier is 3 weeks behind due to extra load of orders... my elbows are desperate for monolifts so I have to stick to hi bar squats instead . I'm still hoping to get 2 #monolift s tomorrow or on Wednesday
Training tip - as I said - if your elbows/shoulders are in pain from low bar squats - you may need wider grip. Unfortunately when your wider grip is 120cm wide and your squat rack is 120cm wide ... MONOLIFT is the best way to go (or "ER" power rack as used by IPF federation)
If your wrists are bad however - get proper stiff wrist wraps (I'm using orange Metal) and learn how to wrap better ... #powerlifting#powerbuilding#salford#wpceuros2017#manchestergym#prestwich#manchester#salfordquays#squats#benchpress#deadlifts#competitionprep
Was good to be back deadlifting today after a back injury... kept everything very light and just hit some volume.... 140kg x 10, 180kg x 10, 200kg x 5 for 5 sets then 210kg x 5 ..... finished with 5 sets of hamstring curls ... no back pain at all so happy day 👍👍👍
First time going heavy with my new bench technique was happy no ass lift on first 2 reps👍 (minimum ass lift in 3rd rep) happy overall ... started working sets with 120kg x 12, 140kg x 8, 150kg x 7 then 165kg x 3 ..... then done shoulder accessory exercises
Good session today @silvermerefit squats from today 5x7 with 65% (150kg). This hypertrophy block is proving fun, even though I'm dead every session. But loving the volume. Thanks @jacobdoingtings
Really good gym as well, throughly impressed!
