Life time PB on SSB squat tonight 260kg x 5 camera failed again but I managed to get this off someone that was also taking a video in the gym at the time the best thing about it is that my wraps was slack and NO SPOTTERS!!!!!!!! So I know I can take this further this literally takes me a huge step closer to my goal of 340kg squat in competition the reps that are shown is the 3rd and 4th just to give you am idea of how the full set went and for those of you that use the #ssbsquat bar you will know how difficult it is to keep your position to a regular Olympic bar. #teammuscleunit #lv2lft #powerlifting #britishpowerliftingunion #powerliftingmeet #squat #benchpress #deadlift #total #bodybuilding #bodybuildingmotivation #strongman #strongmanmotivation #fitspo #fittnessmotivation #strength #power #rawpowerlifting #challengeyourself #motivated #workout #workoutmotivation #glutes #glutesworkout #bootyfordays #legday #quads #fuckyou #gravity

Little PB from last week that I had forgotten to post +30kg on my rack pull! Now at 150kgx2. Excited to see what I can deadlift when it comes round to maxing next πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼 #rackpull #deadlift #powerlifter #powerlifting #shelifts #pr #britishpowerliftingunion #abpu #fitness #fitnessjourney #stronggirls
More fat guy 'speed' work with the bro @mattphewww. Biggest speed session will likely be next week, then slowly take out resistance as comp grows closer
-
235kg, 4 sets of 1, against ~70kg band tension
Followed by speed pulls with forward pulling bands, 5x1 @ 180kg

Fat guy DE upper with @mattphewww. Super mini reds (cinched) floor press. Felt weird, but not as bad as last week. Nearly readjusted to being back totally raw on bench. Some remaining bicep/elbow pain from bench mishap at Euros, but it'll be gone come the British!

140kg, 2x2
150kg, 2x2
160kg, 4x2

#didlift day, and back felt good today, no twinges anywhere. 
#deficitdeadlift top single 190kg, which moved way better than the normal 190kg last week.
Followed by 2x5 @170kg, first set my belt kept digging into my fat so it took about 50 seconds, 2nd set I just got on with it and took about 20 seconds.
Bunch of assistance work and going home happy πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ˜€

Cluster singles, paused well except for last one as felt out of shape. Racking after each and resetting so about 5-8 seconds gap. Working on the same weight I started @poweringthrough triphasic model programme on that led me to my first 140kg bench in comp. so it's been a long recovery but slowly getting there. Hopefully bench will be good for September and looking good for my bench only goals next year. Slow eccentric rows as one of my accessories #powerlifting #britishpowerlifting #britishpowerliftingunion #britishchampionships2017 #gainz #bench #pectear #recovery #abpu #bpu #benchpress #triphasic #PWRTHR #crossfit #bodybuilding #gainz

272.5kg/600lbs for the first time ever, tried this weight a while back and didn't get it. Some people don't get anything from sumo block pulls but I've definitely noticed a difference to pulling from the floor by adding them in again.

Week 2 day 1. Slow eccentric keystone deadlifts(sort of).
Struggling due to enjoying myself a bit to much the night before and staying tight was hard with the feeling of vomit. Possibly something in training in a bad condition though for being not feeling well on comp day prep.....that's my excuse #powerlifting #britishpowerliftingunion #britishchampionships2017 #abpu #triphasic #gainz #deadlift #glutes #gunshow #crossfit #bodybuilding #triphasic
Slow eccentric squats paired with box jumps and trap bar jumps. Week 2 day 1 with a hangover.

167.5kg reverse band (cinched blacks) Poliquin bar press (it's like a football bar, but wants to meet your face more).
-
Really hard variation for me, with wrists shaking due to the fat handles and poor tricep activation, making biceps want to take over somehow and the whole situation ended up really fucking shit really fucking quick. But a grind is a grind, and this is obviously a major weak point for me, so I will keep doing these and get FUARKIN HUGE. Still confident for the British cos I'm a cocky fuck like that #gimmesomeflute

Another good one with all of #TheGayBrigade @mattphewww @jimmythepoo @kurt689

Prep for British Powerlifting Unions, British Championships underway. Week 1 day 4........sprints......hmmm maybe not the best idea but it's fun!
#powerlifting #britishchampionships2017 #britishpowerliftingunion #britishpowerlifting #athletics #squat #bench #deadlift #fitness #crossfit
230kg + 70kg band tension, 5 sets of 1 in knee wraps, last set shown
-
Bit of a special time using the wraps today, and I finally got it locked down on the final set, after a pep talk from James 'The Form Doctor' Taylor. It really just is time in wraps that I need, but I have another 7 or so training weeks to get everything peachy, and I made things 10x better in the space of one set, so it's gonna be fucking sweet on the day!
-
Big up to @jimmythepoo and @kurt689 for stepping up and spotting and wrapping when @mattphewww had problems with his autism and couldn't make it today

It really just is time in wraps that I need, but I have another 7 or so training weeks to get everything peachy, and I made things 10x better in the space of one set, so it's gonna be fucking sweet on the day! - Big up to @jimmythepoo and @kurt689 for stepping up and spotting and wrapping when @mattphewww had problems with his autism and couldn't make it today - #powerlifting  #squat  #benchpress  #deadlift  #bpu  #britishpowerliftingunion  #britishfinals  #wpc  #worldpowerliftingcongress  #westsidebarbell  #conjugatemethod  #accomodatingresistance  #inzer  #inzerbelt  #gometal  #metalpowerlifting  #hammerstrength  #definitiongym  #friends 
210x5. Got to be a pb. Even though I'm not sure that's actually 210 with decades old Olympic plates a smooth bar and straps. But in my world of being a shitty deadlifter this makes me happy. #britishpowerliftingunion #gpcgb #masters1 #mcqueenmethod #deadlift #181
Day after the elbow day of hell, some light #highbarsquat which will be my #skwaats style moving forward over next few weeks. 
Today's other lifts actually helped calm my elbows a little.
2x8 90k #highbar #skwots
Top single #deficitdeadlift 175kg
Then 2x5 @155kg moved nice πŸ‘πŸΌ #hanginglegraises 4x12
#closegrip #seatedrows 3x15 @65kg
Rest day tomorrow, gonna ice these elbows!! ----------------------------------

Getting the hang of the bench shirt, well trying to. My slimmed down version of myself meant the shirts is definitely looser so had a lot of sets getting the tightness reasonable so actually got some pop at the bottom. Lock out strength lacking here and arch not great. Plenty of time to improve with a view to bench something big single ply next year. Probably in a new and size smaller shirt.

So with doing a powerlifting meet at the weekend I thought I would take this week to try some new variations of lifts a sort of trial/error before I start my prep for the #britishchamps first time on this machine did not get full video due to memory but you can see how the reps are moving. #teammuscleunit #lv2lft #powerlifting #britishpowerliftingunion #powerliftingmeet #squat #benchpress #deadlift #total #bodybuilding #bodybuildingmotivation #strongman #strongmanmotivation #fitspo #fittnessmotivation #strength #power #rawpowerlifting #challengeyourself #motivated #workout #workoutmotivation @lewisrossi7 @_m4ttykav @zeez_the_future @fisher_bw @samwattfitness @sir_nodaysoff @lv2lft @m_hagi91 @leechambers86 @teamprobodeez @sjt_fitness01 @jakeboid95 @jamienadin @ryantanofficial

So first day of program leading into #britishpowerliftingunion finals turned into a complete disaster. Was really looking forward to what looks like a real full on program by @aw.performance.pt - lots of work - πŸ‘πŸΌ, but elbow pain kicked in far far worse then normal.
After 170kg single pain was so great I was hunched over on verge of tears - I consider myself to have a high threshold of pain - but today I bailed. 
Did some #legpress #reversecurls #sloweccentric curls to try and help my pain. 
Gutted, only saving grace was I did some squats and bench yesterday so hopefully not too much loss this early in cycle.

277.5kg basically no reverse band squats. Kilos left to be had, but form started to breakdown so no need to take the reps. 2.5kg less than my comp max in wraps, putting me in a great place for the British in just under 8 weeks.

Great session with all the boys, getting back to doing ME lower with everybody once again @jimmythepoo @kurt689 @mattphewww and little @danasmith_x too

Bench video trimmed down but no rest between the three exercises. Slow eccentrics followed by speed reps with the bench daddy then slow eccentric weighted chins #powerlifting #bench #benchpress #benchdaddy #triphasic #PWRTHR #gainz #pectear #recovery #britishpowerliftingunion #britishchampionships2017 #britishpowerlifting
Didn't make the drive down to Chelmsford for @poweringthrough opening of their performance centre as still recovering from Haiti. Did need to start prep for British today though. Following the triphasic model that's fine me well. First exercise squats with slow eccentric (counting 5 in my head) then contrast with box jumps and trap bar jumps. #powerlifting #britishpowerlifting #britishchampionships2017 #britishpowerliftingunion #squat #bench #deadlift #gainz #recovery #triphasic #eccentric #PWRTHR #crossfit #bodybuilding #glutes #quads

Ugh. Back in the gym yesterday for the standard 'everything moved like turd' post-comp session. Little bicep impingement I picked up in prep needs a touch more rest and wankerback is going to get chance to recover so just some very slow paused squats on the menu. 8 weeks til the Brits so not much time to wallow - time to add some kilos to that total!

Too much driving and sitting for work recently, missed meals and low carbs over last two days is affecting my sessions. Will need to sort and meal prep asap.
Was hoping for 220kg #didlift today but hit a brick wall at 200kg. 
Failed 210kg 3 times
Need to eat more, weighed in at 97.3kg

As promised, a sub-standard single ply bench press. I only got my opener of 185kg on my second attempt, as the first time I launched it into my face, and on my third attempt of 195kg, I (as I jested) couldn't get a touch with due to bloating too hard HA. Annoyed because the 195kg felt better than any other single ply bench attempt I had ever taken, and then it just decided to lock up maybe 0.5cm off of my chest, and then my elbow said no thanks and I had to bail it. *Technically* 185kg is a European record, but yeah, whatever. I also won my class, but being the only one in it, I should have! There are many more kilos to be had, I just need to have many more hours in the shirt before I can get them.
-
Big up to the boys for an awesome week, maybe not of lifting, with 2 bomb outs and basically no PB's, but we still had a laugh (maybe not really we all hate each other).
-
A special mention to somebody who deserved to be here, but unfortunately couldn't be, Adriano. It was a brilliant tribute from Emma Ylitalo-James to have his bar loaded for one last time, and I know that all of Team GB will have been applauding him from at home. Rest in peace Adriano!

Thanks to everybody at Metal for running a wicked meet, #TheGayBrigade for all of their help on the day and in training, Emma and Kalle for doing such an awesome job of running the BPU, and Team GB for all being supportive of one and other, and smashing some big lifts along the way! Sorry to anyone who I have missed.

Finally fasting all finished. Over the last 18hrs eaten close to 700g in carbs so felt a bit bloated today. But had to get through today to see where I am up to.
Plenty of technical points for me work on but happy to get through it. Now that I can eat properly, numbers should start rising.
Weighed in at 99kg before session. Felt like I needed a πŸ’© on every #lowbarsquat πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Some real grinders today, but at least I know at my worst I have a 200kg #skwaat πŸ‘πŸΌ
Top singles 170, 180, 190 and 200kg

Should probably post my deadlift too! Had to be super conservative with my opener to keep my squat record safe (they don't count if you bomb!) and as we didn't really know what my back had in it. 110 opener sailed up, this was my 120 second which also moved nicely. We put 130 in for my third but I fell out of position and just don't have the confidence in my back yet to have monged it up. Still, it finished me on a 317.5 total which is a 10kg pb even with a token deadlift. Happy.

Good session today, finished hypertrophy block last week, starting the strength block with 9x2 70% on squats, 3x4 paused above parallel squats with 130kg and bench 4x6 with 102.5kg. Nice and simple to kick things off. Feeling much better now with training now the hypertrophy work is done.
