    160kg xf
    145kg x2
    145kg x2

    Done!

    Squats ok I suppose, not much to really discuss.

    Strict press felt ok, almost failed the 3rd rep at 90kg, had to reset and got it 2nd time of asking.

    Bench was good, all felt smooth, 160kg flew off the chest quite easily, but kind of lost it mentally

    Couple of the guys gave me some hard slaps around the face to get me going, probably need to really eotk on my aggression when approaching heavish lifts.

    Normally I wouldve gone home after the first failure but gave it another go and got the 145kg 2x2 quite easily.

    Decent enough session.

    Onwards and Upwards!

    So I havent really done much as far as this comp goes but i've decided to get a little more serious with my nutrition.

    Tracking cals and macros etc.

    Interestingly it works out being more food than Im used to eating when freestyling a cut, so should be interesting.

    Energy levels will be higher which will mean better performance in the gym, so looking forward to how things will pan out.

    Todays training

    Flat dumbbell press - per hand

    30kg x10
    40kg x10
    50kg x5
    60kg x5
    60kg x4
    60kg x3
    50kg x8
    50kg x5

    Standing Overhead Press

    40kg x5
    60kg x3
    70kg x2
    80kg x2
    90kg x2
    60kg x10

    Lying ez bar extension

    50kg 3x8

    Done!

    Not a bad session in hindsight, felt a bit tired this morning, triceps were just struggling to lock everything out.

    Food so far today

    6 eggs, 2 thick cut slices of bacon
    Coffee

    Chocolate milk post workout.

    3 meals planned for rest of the day.

    Chicken and rice

    Beef and rice

    Gammon steaks

    Onwards and Upwards!

    Diets the bastard isn't it mate! Does get easier the more you stick it though.

    Still best part of 7 weeks left, plenty of time to make some good changes for the comp......

    Day 5 of diet now and all going well, hitting my macros without much drama.

    Training this morning

    Wide stance power squats

    60kg x5
    100kg x5
    120kg x3
    140kg x1
    160kg x1
    170kg x1

    Narrow stance

    100kg x5
    120kg x3
    140kg x1
    160kg x1
    170kg x1

    Bench

    80kg x5
    100kg x3
    120kg x2
    140kg x2

    150kg x1

    Chin ups to finish.

    Wide stance squats felt solid but depth really difficult to hit.

    Think i'll work on both stances.

    Bench was ok, didnt do it on a proper bench, was in the rack so set up was off and couldnt use leg drive.

    Onwards and Upwards!
