I find single leg split squats feel pretty nice, just got to be good at keeping your balance. Key is to ensure you're going down not forwards.
My balance ain't too bad, it's getting into the damned position which is hard, I always end up too close to the bench and hence can't go down to any reasonable depth. Not helped by super slippy benches which I slide around on. I'll stick to split squats I think

Also.. my views on this blog is going up expotentially... up almost 2k in 2 days... more active blog or because I'm posting more in the debate forums.. who knows

Ah yeah I know what you mean. First time I did them I was too close, took a few sets to get a good position.

What I find is best is to start away from the bench and put one leg backwards, find that a lot easier than starting close to the bench and trying to move away.

tbh the thing I've found hardest about them is keeping hold of the DBs in the latter sets. Chalk to arrive sooooon so should be all sorted.

I'd have thought standard PHP code would work fine. [b ] TEXT HERE [/b ]

Obvs remove the spaces between b and ]

That's how I do bold/italics/embed images/videos/urls etc all the time. Have been using online forums for various things for like 10 years now, I'm used to the times when PHP code was all we had and none of these easy buttons to click existed

You just type in the PHP code with square brackets to make text bold on your phone.

So nobody mentioned the 3x100kg bench pb? Beast. That's awesome. You're a good 5kg ahead of me. You ever tried a 1RM?

Nice to see someone plays a bit of cricket here! Do you not play any other uni/club cricket?

Bulgarian split squats feel really dodgy at first. I think the key is to pick a bench/platform for your trailing leg that is fairly low, mark the position your foot should be before hand - not too close, not too far - then start at the bottom position and warm up with no weight, then pick up the dumbbells for your sets at the bottom position. Balance will improve and it will blast your quad. Your heart rate will jump up, even for a heavy set of 5 in my case! Otherwise, just stick to step ups, regular split squats, walking lunges etc.

What body fat would you estimate your on and what is your aim? I gots cutting to do. Cheating every 2 weeks but going to have to go until I go back to uni in September at least. Sucks

Shoulder rehab = stretch pec, lat, traps, get internal rotation back if it's lost, strengthen anterior core, upper back (face pulls, Ts, Ys), external rotations, overhead holds (KB turkish get ups, DB kneel-to-stand amongst others), do lots of horizontal rowing with good form (at least more than pressing in sets/reps), don't pack your shoulders (let your scapula upwardly rotate, for the technical terms), do scap push ups and overhead shrugs, ideally no straight bar benching or overhead pressing (neutral grip is safer) but gotta do what you gotta/wanna do, do push ups, include yoga push ups, prone cobras/YTWs, band pull aparts and band dislocations in warm up. I'm sure there's more to it, but just thought I'd brainstorm as you said you had a bad shoulder.

Is it from sport like cricket or just lifting/life in general?

I did before Easter, I did 105kg but failed 110. I'm a little bit stronger these days.

I think I'll go for 100 3 x 3 tomorrow Or 97.5 for however many.. we'll see lol

I used to play in my teens, but I stopped due to illness when I was 16, then when I was finally well enough I couldn't play for last season as I injured my right shoulder, farming.
If my back holds up I'll try and play a bit this summer back at home.

That game was for my campus team which is being set up and was against the local village
You play cricket to a decent level if memory serves... what are you, batsmen/ bowler?

I'm a leg spinner and a bit of a tail ender tbh, when I hold my nerve I can bat decently but usually I end up playing some god awful defensive poke and dolly it to a fielder. When my nerve holds I am well known for sending balls over/ at bowlers heads

Yeah, they're dodgy as hell to get into, will try this next time

Er... I'm eating maintenance I'm somewhere between 83 and 84kgs at 5'10, about 17 ish bf%? Maybe, I don't really know tbh. I'm eating maintenance atm as I don't know whats going to happen with my back in terms of treatment. MRI soon hopefully.

Yeah it's my other shoulder that was bad - doing band dislocates and pull aparts with lots of facepulls has revolutionised my left shoulder tbh, no longer does it make a grating noise

I was lifting to supplement my sport (cycling, running, ultimate frisbee amongst others) my ideal goal is to become a cross athlete, so to be able to be decent in the powerlifting world and decent in the cardio world, kind of like Alex Viada (that man is incredible tbh)
