    Very strong DL

    Any idea what your 1RM is?
    I find that the Epley formula generally works well for me at least for repetition work (1RM=W+WR/30) which would put me at 218.5kg, however I tend not to do so well at heavier weights, so I doubt that even with a taper I would hit that. 210-215 might be a reasonable estimate I think.

    It was only one set, not five. But still it does require a good few minutes to feel better again!

    I'm awful at high-rep deadlifts. Even fives were a stretch for me back when I was doing 110 or something. Naff.
    Do you plan on competing in the future?
    I hate that you're heavier, taller, stronger but younger than me .

    Possibly might compete, I don't think I'm that great of a lifter though so I don't expect any records to be broken soon :P. I mostly lift because I enjoy the process of incrementally getting better.

    And lol but I have probably been lifting longer than you, although not that seriously.

    As a general question to everyone reading, should I try to post some pics? I'm not amazingly lean (obv @ 97kg 6ft natty) but it feels like it would make the blog slightly more interesting.

    Whenever I get bored of trying to get stronger tbh. I've always been fat really and I don't have any intention to become shredded.

    70*6*3

    Squat:

    85*5

    GM:

    60*2
    62.5*2*5

    Nearly took two hours to do this!

    Squatted 70,75,80*5 yesterday too. Wouldn't say I feel any pain atm but my knee feels iffy so I will probably not go too heavy. If my knee just doesn't want to heal fast enough I might try a wide stance powerlifting squat or maybe box squats. Better that than nothing tbh. Got my TK bands on monday as well. Knees feel warm and stable ^_^

    Found it interesting that backing off slightly in the power clean and then working back up allowed me to nail 80kg again.

    Wide stance squat:

    80*2*3
    90*3

    GM:

    52.5*8

    Press still feels heavy lol.

    Wide stance squat allowed me to squat without knee pain to parallel (used a box for reference but didn't sit on it). Will probably continue doing these as it allows me to train. They're also a lot easier in terms of lifting weight than oly squats that's for sure, at the expense of being a little more harsh on the lower back.

    WS Squat:

    80*3
    90*3
    95*3
    100*3

    Was pretty annoyed about Push Press. Was all rather easy until today when I just couldn't seem to get the leg drive and lockout going. Oh well, Will up volume day slightly and try again next week. Might have been that I just lacked aggressiveness as I felt a bit dazed today and could not get into the mood.

    Still, managed to set a minor Deadlift PB. Maybe 195*4 next week.

    Low back felt a bit fatigued yesterday and today so will give the Good Mornings a rest.

    Was warming up thinking 'pfft I'm not sure I'll even be able to power clean 80/82.5' then I actually managed to work up to a PB of 85kg. Moral of the story here is that you should beleive in urself.

    Very important message. Positive thinking and visualization are very important to pretty much everything in life. I've busted a few PR's after having some failed attempts as well.

    PC felt promising but I just seemed to crash after I tried 87.5kg.

    PP felt a bit hard at first but sets 4-6 started feeling easy.

    gah! nearly got the last rep of push press but it's like a brick wall is there.

    Deadlift was a bit too round back for my liking, but I managed 3 reps. Took a lot out of me, so much so that I nearly didn't get my last squat rep.
