Daily updated training info + stuff #AKtraining

24 March 2017

Had an embarrassing mishap in gym today. Was doing bench presses at my limit at 80kg, the aim to do five sets of three. On my last set I was beasted by the second one, but thought “maybe I can do one more after resting the bar on my chest”. I rested the bar but 80kgs is actually quite heavy, and I realised that I wasn’t going to get it up. Trying to remain cool I tried rolling it along my body to my hips when some spotted me, ran over, and tried to lift it, but from one end (idiot!), which he couldn’t do. Next someone else ran up, seeing two people entangled in some terrible weights based industrial incident, and between the three of us we wrestled the bar back onto its perch. Christ how embarrassing, but I guess it does show that I’m trying! Funny little note is the guy was rescued me was the dental assistant from my visit to the dentist last night (it’s a small world, but with a population of 4.5 million Ireland is smaller than most).

The Day's Training

  • Row 5km 29:46
  • Bench 5x3 80kg (last one was only 2!)
  • Bench Wide 5x5 50kg
  • Low Squats 5x5 80kg
  • Press 5x5 40kg
  • Deadlift 5x5 100kg

Note:These numbers don't include warm up, which tend to be done at 25%, 50% and 75% of final weigh.

Notes

Good week I think, but next weeks going to be very different. Time to go out of pre-training routine and do throw in some my dynamic compound exercises into the mix.
