    Oooo. The bands look interesting. I've never tried bands or used chains. Tend to lift in commercial gyms and the one for the last year has been very small with limited equipment. Maybe some day I'll get to try them out too. Nice work. You are starting out strong on the training.

    Decline bench 01.11.16

    My husband and I are going to go to a hardware store at the weekend and see about making a block for the decline bench sessions. We did try looking around the house to see if there was anything, but there was nothing stable. Bench was okay - last couple of reps in the 66 sets felt a little tough, but doable. Found the 50 harder to control (think it might be going from a heavier to lighter weight) so need to work on this.



    Decline bench

    Warm-up set:
    45x8

    Working sets:
    66x2x6
    50x8

    Bent over close grip barbell row
    45x3x12

    Seated close grip row
    27.5x3x12

    Rear delts bent-over raise
    11x3x12

    Hammer curls
    11x3x12

    Shrugs
    27.5x3x12

    Hanging ab raises
    b/wx10x10

    Nice session.

    I always found decline bench to be super awkward.

    It's nice it's going to someone looking to start though. Music can be an expensive endeavor, quality instruments are usually quite pricey. It's great it'll go to a younger kid getting her start in music. On top of that, yay for belt, and clock restoration.

    Haha, mine's in my closet too. Though it's an OM, so it's smaller, and less clunky. I got everything I needed to start learning/practicing with it, except the tuner (it was ordered, but the seller didn't send it, refunded it, and I never got a different one). Can't tune worth a damn by ear, so it's hard to work with when it won't sound right.

    Someday I'll want to try again though, and it'll be there. Though I'll still have to get a tuner sometime. lol

    Lol, I just went through all my clothes to get rid of stuff I don't or won't wear, and some of it was way harder than it should have been. Just sitting there for five minutes like "I know there's a stain, but I can wear this somehow, right?" I get attached to things.

    Yes, I know these things all too well.

    Yeah, it should see her through all her grades, if she does them

    My belt has apparently begun its journey from Germany so I'm hoping it won't be too long!

    That was my goal going into it, lol. Figured I'd get rid of anything I haven't worn in a year or more, or that absolutely won't fit even after leaning out. For the most part I was good, made some tough choices, but I know there's a few things I'm not entirely sure I should have kept. lol.

    Good pressing. I put plates under my bench because the angle isn't steep enough. It helps some. Blocks would definitely help too.

    You get the lever belt?

    I never thought of plates as I thought my bench might slide off them (it's a pretty cheap bench). I'll try plates but also try and sort out a block.

    Yeah, ordered a 10mm lever belt. Can't wait to try it

    So, I ordered this and it came today. It's had some good reviews from people on these forums as well as Amazon and the website I got it from, so I figured I'd give it a go. Works out at about £11 each month which I didn't think was too bad if it's going to keep my joints healthy. I guess I'll only know if it doesn't work if I start having joint problems lol

    Squats 03.11.16

    I decided to accompany my training this morning with a 90s compilation album…brought back some memories lol. First go at paused squats and I can see how they’ll be a benefit for building that explosion out of the hole. For wide squats it felt like I was able to get lower this week, particularly in the second set.



    Squat warm-up sets
    Barx8
    66x6

    Squat (comp. stance)
    100x5x2

    Paused Squat (comp. stance) 1-2 count up
    45x2
    55x2
    60x2

    Squat (close stance)
    66x3x6

    Squat (wide stance)
    55x2x10

    Resistance band leg curls
    3x12

    Calf raises
    132x3x15

    Hanging leg raises

    Cheers, I need to make adjustments next time. Wade has said to ensure I am pushing my knees out on the comp. stance. At the moment I am pushing them forward, so will need to be aware of that next time

    Mine were at a light weight (for me) so I have no doubt the challenge will increase with the weight!
