    Yeah usually it's the other way round, with bench hurting people's shoulders. But I'm glad that's not me because no-one asks how much you can weighted dip lol.

    Good session tonight.

    Squats:

    123 x 5
    123 x 5
    123 x 5

    Nice and easy.

    Press:

    50 x 5
    50 x 5
    50 x 5

    Could have probably qualified as speed work.

    Pendlay rows:

    70 x 5
    70 x 5
    70 x 5

    Really easy.

    Chins:

    bodyweight x 3/1/1/1/1/1/1/1

    These weren't so great. Did some 10s negatives on the last couple.

    Stretching and home.

    Good session tonight.

    Squats:

    126 x 5
    126 x 5
    126 x 5

    Nice and easy. Forgot to wear my knee-sleeves today too. The sleeves help a fair bit with correct knee tracking so squats were a little quad dominant.

    Bench:

    73 x 5
    73 x 5
    73 x 5

    Felt heavy in my hands but every rep went up nice and smooth.

    Deadlifts:

    155 x 5

    Again not too hard.

    Tried to do some chins but had really bad ab-DOMS because last session I tried to do some sit ups with a weight and really felt it since then. Strangely ab-DOMS totally destroyed my ability to chin. So did some curls and left.

    Good session tonight.

    Squats:

    129 x 5
    129 x 5
    129 x 5

    These were fine and easy. Had to wait a while between last warm-up set and first work set, though, which made it the hardest set as I was slightly cooled down.

    I was wearing an pair of rugby shorts today and a fairly long legged pair of boxers (I usually wear boxer briefs) so that when I stretch not too much of my inner thigh is showing. So when I was warming up a set of 60 I noticed that this experiment didn't work... then on the next warm up set with 80, I saw something that looked to be my scrotum slightly hanging out one side. ****, I though, rather than show less skin with the longer legged boxers I am actually showing more flesh! So I readjusted myself (discretely) and pulled my boxers right up so hopefully my reproductive organs were held tightly against my lower stomach. So I preceded to do 100 for a couple of reps and **** me, my **** fell out and was hanging right out for all to see! So I couldn't have that! Then I remembered that the other pair of clean boxers I took with me were of the normal kind, so I scampered back to the changing rooms to put them on.

    It's a good job that there is no option other than to squat facing mirrors or else I would have done a whole three sets of five with my knob hanging out. Quite a lot of people - especially females - in the weights area tonight, too. Someone must have seen something, even out of the corner of their eye...

    Press:

    53 x 5
    53 x 5
    53 x 5

    Easy.

    Pendlay row:

    73 x 5
    73 x 5
    73 x 5

    Really easy.

    Chins:

    bodyweight x 2/1/1/1/1

    These sucked. Last four singles were with exaggerated negatives, failed on the concentric on the 7th rep.

    Didn't stretch. Went home.

    Probably the most embarrasing thing to happen to me in years. I get over the embarassment by having a good laugh about it.

    Forgot to update this last night.

    Quite a good session tonight.

    Squats:

    132 x 5
    132 x 5
    132 x 5

    Not too hard again. Form wasn't too great though as they felt very quad dominant. I think that it's my heeled weightlifting shoes throwing me forward. Considering switching to flat soled shoes.

    Bench press:

    76 x 5
    76 x 5
    76 x 5

    Quite hard.

    Deadlifts:

    160 x 5

    Not hard at all.

    Chins:

    bodyweight x 1/1

    These felt atrocious tonight. Failed on the second one, then the plan was to make up the rest of the reps with long eccentrics but elbow felt ****ed up. Might drop these and do something else instead as they feel exclusively a biceps exercise.

    try rack chins

    I prefer them to normal ones - feel it in the lats a lot more, easier to add weight, and there is good carryover when you go back to normal ones

    I did 5 triples with 85 the other day, and have done 90 for a single with a slight pause (not a long pause like when I do say, pause squats ie 3-4 seconds), but still a slightl pause. Wanna race to 100

    I get pretty bad abs doms if I chin after not-doing so in a while.

    It's weird that you think it targets mostly your biceps though. Chins are one of my favourite lat exercises.

    Maybe it's just because my biceps are likely to be the weak link, hence why I feel them the most there.

    In my garage I have a pair of 15kg and a pair of 20kg DBs, so now I'm home I curl all the time lol. It's just too easy, I can smash out a couple of sets in a minute or two every time I pass the garage so theoretically I can curl like every day LOL. Do the same, see what happens !
