    Trained with Paul D again. Ken and Dom back in a week or so - meaning it'll be a 4 man crew for bench.

    Close Grip Bench Press

    s/s

    Lat Pulldowns - wide bar
    12p x 15 reps, 17p x 12 reps, stack+4.5 stacker plates x 12 reps

    Rolling Thunder (stiff handle)
    worked to +120kg x 3 reps @, 130kg x 3 reps @, 140kg x 3 reps @, 160kg x 3 reps @ (this would be a nice work set number for 3x3). Then up on the blocks to a 188kg x fail and then 1 rep both RH (new PB)
