No point in limiting myself based on the achievements of others. It may well be unlikely but that doesn't mean I shouldn't try. It has been done so it is possible.

100kg shredded as a natural is extremely unlikely, even as a gear user that is a mammoth task.
OHP was trained today.
Seated Smith Press
Rear Delt Flyes + Front Raise superset
Also did lots of pullups throughout the workout.
Week off now. Yay! Still going to keep the conditioning and flexibility work up but I'm not going to lift again until next monday.

Yup that's the plan.

Strong stuff. Good , a week off once in a while helps in recovery and in hitting prs .
I'm feeling pretty beat up at the moment following this last microcycle.
I don't plan in weeks off but take them when I start to get pain in my joints and/or low back that interferes with basic things like picking stuff up off the floor or sitting in a chair for a long time. This usually happens every 12-20 weeks.
Plus I'm working 1900-0700 night shifts weds-sun so it fits in quite well.

Squat day. It hurt. Fun though.
Assistance work is aimed at strengthening my hips and adductors to try to rectify the medial knee drift I get when I go to >95% or on the last few reps of a widowmaker set. This is all a result of my hamstring tear. **** me I love rehab. Or not.
Paused Squat (A2G, 3 second pause in the hole)
Good-Girl/Bad-Girl Machine (Adductor)
Worked up to maxing the stack out over a few sets of 10, pausing for peak contraction. Then did 3x10 with the thing maxed in the same fashion.
