man i just started reading this thread properly, so much to dissect lol
firstly, the bolded bit implies you are one of the "just light touch" but the mans behind you is holding the bar throughout and getting swole muscles upright rowing the weight for you
please tell me this is not true
if it is, i've lost all respect.
Thanks for the comments will take it in.
No lol, whenever possible I bench with a spotter watching, but not touching. if i'm struggling to put up the weight, they will help me, but obviously thats only for the last rep or two of a set of probobly 5-10 reps. E.g. a week or two ago when i did 92.5kg, i did 4 reps with the spotter not touching, but i was struggling on the 5th so he did use 'just a light touch' and help me put it up.
i said 'completely unassisted' because I want to lift 100kg without a spotter intervening at all. but obviously a spotter will be present when i aim for this, for safety reasons. and obviously they will help if i need it.
However, i get what you mean about supersetting with the big lifts. Was probobly a bit naive to have just 45s rest inbetween two big compound exercises. Will increase this as you said to 60-90s in future.
Decent session. Gym was RAMMED! Had to use machine shoulder press because the weights room was simply packed and I wanted to keep the intensity and speed of the workout high. Got an awesome pump on, but kinda missing benching heavy!!
B1 - Dumbell shoulder press x 4
44kg (2x22kg) x 8,8,8,8.
B2 - Wide grip chin ups (machine assisted) x 4
Level 6 x 8,8,8,8.
C1 - EZ Curls x 4
25kg x 8,8,8,8.
C2 - Skull Crushers x 4
25kg x 8,8,8,8.
Exactly the same as last time i did this workout.
"Good workout, did with my training partner, very quick and smooth transitions between exercises, and got an awesome pump. All good, again, have to do assisted chins on the machine to get the full amount of reps out."
80kg bench felt good. Losing some strength during this fat loss period but it's worth it imo. Can always get it back quickish, muscle memory etc.
Massive pump, good workout. A bit gutted because I was db benching thinking they were 2x30kg db's, and it was only when i finished that my mate pointed out that they're 28s. oh well. will do 30's next week, should easily get out 12-15.

Stop running mofo, you're making me feel guilty.
Are you just playing League at the moment?
Haha. Well, we won the league, and the quarter final vs Exeter is on wednesday 25th. If you're near roath park tomorrow around midday you'll see us training! There was gonna be a friendly but we couldent sort one out in time.
Yeah atm i'm just training/playing league, and gymming.
Don't normally do this much running, just trying to accellerate fat loss for the next few weeks, then back to heavy lifting.
