I wasn't joking when I said @wookielifting had snuck an extra 1.25kg plate onto my bar yesterday - yep, it's nestled between the 20 and the 10 plates πŸ˜‚

2 weeks rest (not necessarily planned) & back up & at em with 3 @ 62.5kg x 3. Slightly modified stance with toes pointed out worked well for me πŸ˜€πŸ‘ This looks like it could be a game changer as I've struggled before with both setup & depth. Really enjoyed the feeling after this last set 😊

Last upper body session before research trip. Shoulders significantly better push pressing more than my bodyweight with no pain. Then pull ups with an extra 10kg of chain with no pain. #pectear #tendinitis #recovery #powerlifting #britishpowerlifting #britishpowerliftingunion #abpu #gainz #bodybuilding #crossfit #athletics #fitness #pullups #chains #pushpress #pump
Was in hospital on Sunday with breathing problems, lung capacity feels so much less than normal so scrapped today's plan of 4x5 and did some singles with 155kg

DE squats against ~65kg band tension (different set up to home) in the presence of @danasmith_x. Starting to slowly reintroduce wraps as didn't have enough time in them before the last meet and it showed on 3rd attempt, so slowly phasing them should see the problems eliminated

180kg 1x2
220kg 5x1

Big up to @wiseelliot who spotted me during his session, and put up with me essentially shitting my pants at the bottom of my third set (sorry again)

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

Progress. Having your back go into full-scale meltdown four weeks out from the Euros is far from ideal, but that was the situation we were faced with two weeks ago. Still, I'm not really one to roll over and give up so we did what we could to let things heal up. Today was the first day since then that I've been able to lift something that vaguely represents a total, under the watchful eye of @tommartinpl (and @rustyprotonz and @pennybc92). Still a bit of a way to go and not all that much time to get there but I'm closer than I thought I would be when I couldn't even get myself out of bed, let alone dress myself. Highlights from today's session at SILA - the rebuild continues...πŸ¦„

Slightly difficult time squatting at first, but managed to get things together (just about) in the end. Last session before 12 week (perma)peak into British begins, so upped band tension for this little extra speed session.
-
All sets against weirdly wrapped greens for ~75kg band tension:
140kg 1x2
180kg 2x2
190kg 3x2 (last set shown)
-
Was doing a lot of box squatting outside of 'prep', so now I've swapped back to free-standing squats it feels a bit weird, and I was taking too long on the descent and not whipping into depth like I usually do, but have plenty of time to fully sort that and then hit what I know I can at the British.
-
Good session with the tiny @danasmith_x, the big man @bobharleymc and thanks to Little Addy Canny @adam__canham for rerack guidance on the last few sets. Always the best atmosphere at @definition.gym

Goal today was to do a full range bench in the shirt to check shoulder pain. No pain and descent felt comfortable. Fucked the line up on the way up I think. But fatigued from pushing the bench daddy last week. Single ply bench only at British champs, may even get a new shirt for the occasion. #powerlifting #britishpowerlifting #britishpowerliftingunion #bench #singleply #benchpress #pectear #recovery #gainz #athletics #crossfit #bodybuilding
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 πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Trying @poweringthrough hand supported split squats (Bulgarian) hard work but definitely helps taking the balance out. #powerlifting #britishpowerliftingunion #britishpowerlifting #squat #bulgariansplitsquat #crossfit #bodybuilding #athletics #sprint #gainz #fitness
Looking back before the injury benching 180kgx5 
Trying to stay motivated while I cant train properly at the moment, cant wait to get back to it eventually.

Not the nicest reps ever, but just got a rub down from Russ @batchsportstherapy so getting tight was a slight problem 
However, a Rep #pb, never done a double at this weight let alone 5

#pausesquats today, not done these in a while and went pretty smoothly. Still fasting, so no food or water since 1am this morning, and fast doesn't open for another couple of hrs. 
This timetable for gym is pretty standard during #Ramadan for me now. 
Top single #lowbar #pause #skwaats 130kg then 3x3 110kg set 3 video shown.
Finished with 3x5 107.5kg #tng #binch which felt easy.
Down to 98.6kg now, 6kg weight drop during fasts so far, time to hit some #abs πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Not bad progression for sprints. 6 weeks of standard 60m sprints followed up by 4 weeks of specific training. Finishing with a PB and just outside of a sub 7 second 60 metres. (Caveat being manual stop watch so accuracy may be a question). Not bad for a powerlifting non athlete with no running coaching.  #sprints #powerlifting #athletics #gainz #athlete #fitness #crossfit #britishpowerliftingunion
Top single today at 180kg. Felt pretty smooth. This week and another 2 to go for me on fasting, so all these sessions are on zero food or water all day, and it was warm today as well.

A very disappointing squat session..still hanging from the stag doo at the weekend ... and my hayfever destroyed me today so stuck to some speed work on a light weight 😞

Great session with @Matthew7bradbury Got talked into trying the 70kg dumbels for the first time. Not the best reps but a good place build off

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!

Pretty horrific top single of 160kg from yesterday's #skwaats, very little sleep as I got back very late fro #aerosmith concert, then fasting all day. 
So....probably can't be too hard on myself, despite dropping from 85% to 78% of 1rm over 4 days.

RPE 8 so basically 1 rep with 2 in the tank 240kg Squat 152.5kg Bench 260kg Deadlift. Feeling good for next week! #sfcoaching#powerlifting#bpu#abpu#powerliftingmotivation #bodybuildingmotivation #britishpowerliftingunion #big3#squat#bench#deadlift#roadto700kgs
Getting much harder to hit big numbers now in #ramadan so no food or water until sunset from sunrise 
Really felt thirsty today, video shown is 1st set of pause bench 105kg 3x3 in total

This was after 160kg top single #lowbarsquat followed by 3x3 @ 140kg which moved OK

If I can just hold onto top singles close to or around 85% 1rm through rest of fasting I'll be happy ----------------------------------

Working on my weaknesses. Sumo deadlift is a pretty big one especially at this height. One more week before hopefully a bit of an international adventure then back to serious training when I get back. #deadlift #powerlifting #britishpowerlifting #britishpowerliftingunion #sumo #sumodeadlift #glutes #hamstrings #bootybuilding #bikiniprep #bodybuilding #fitness #crossfit #athletics

First part pretty awkward... But after that it was a 50kg bench attempt.

WELL. It would appear being injured and only being able to bench is paying off. No idea where these came from but what was meant to be a top single of 60kg escalated quite nicely to a lovely little 67.5kg PB! Had a little pop at 70kg but I'd used up all my pb tokens by then. Soon. πŸ‘€ Thanks to @tommartinpl for letting me play while the bench gods were smiling down on me 😁

Always a good session at @ironathletegym and fab to see the squad @rustyprotonz @jaseholmes @themartinlewis @lisabeee10 @chrissie.ellen @redevie101 @jwsfpt @alexlovesdeadlifts @wyliesung28 @sam_bollands and anyone else I've forgotten!
