    How come you're starting so light on the exercises when you're deep into your workout mate? Eg in your last back workout you did 60*8 then 100 then 140 then 160. By that time you should be warm enough from pulldowns, t-bars and seated rows. I would just for the rackpulls do a set with 100kg for 3 reps then go straight to few working sets :)

    Yeah it's a fair point mate, I just like to do a light set on a new exercise before getting into it. It's a mindset more than anything, but your right like it's not really necessary.

    if it was just unnecessary then no big deal but I reckon you're actually doing yourself a disservice by doing so many reps at such low weights - by the time the work sets come you're knackered...less is more...work smarter not harder :)

    Trained legs yesterday, squats were decent but I had fuck all energy just felt knackered so was written off shortly after and missed most of everything.

    Banged loads of food in today and was pretty pumped for Chest & Tri's:

    Incline Smith - BAR 15, 60 X 15 X 2, 100 8, 120 5, 120 5, 120 3

    Happy with that, good improvement on last session but did drop warm up sets down.

    Seated machine press (kg plates a side) - 25 12, 40 12, 50 9

    Incline Flyes - 20's 12, 27.5's 10, 10, 10

    EZ Skulls (kg plates a side) - 10 x 15 x 2, 15 7, 15 7

    V Bar Pushdown - s9 12, 12

    Decent session.
