Bench and Squats

Again I have fallen behind on my blog posts. Just goes to show how busy my schedule is lately.

On Wednesday 3rd Sept I got together with some great friends for some Bench Shirt work.

Warm Up
Leg Swings and Stretching.

Working Sets
Bench Press - 60kg/6 reps, 60kg/6 reps, 80kg/6 reps, 110kg/4 reps, 145kg/3 reps, 160kg/1 rep.
Bench Press (with Titan Katana A/S) - 205kg/3 board, 205kg/2 board/215kg/1 board, 215kg/1 rep, 220kg/1 rep.

An amazing evening of Bench Shirt work. 220kg is 15kg more than my competition best. This meet coming up is going to be great!

I knew I was going away for the week end so I got out into the garage to do some Buffalo Bar Squats on Thursday 4th Sept. Nothing special but at least I got er' done.

Leg Swings and Stretching.
Buffalo Bar Squats - bar (25lbs)/10 reps, 125lbs/6 reps, 125lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 295lbs/1 rep, 295lbs/1 rep, 5 sets/1 rep/365lbs.

This being my third workout day in a row I was feeling a bit tight. I only wore my belt, no knee sleeves. I focused on form and speed. Another good work out.
