    @ Powerhouse Gym
    Close Grip Bench Press
    to 140kg/308lbs x 3 x 1 reps

    45kg x 8 reps, 90kg x 8 reps and 120kg/264lbs x 6 reps @

    Hammer Curls
    (done for the 'gram) I ended up one arm hammer curling the 90kg/198lbs dumbbell for reps. Check out this screen grab:


    Instagram Link

    What's kinda f**ked up is, as per my log, I've been no where near this weight (quite deliberately) for a year. This past Tuesday I did 108lbs for 8 reps. But fetch out a camera and...

    Both hands: per dumbbell x 10kg/22lbs x 12 reps, 20kg/44lbs x 10 reps, 30kg/66lbs x 8 reps, 40kg/88lbs x 6 reps, 50kg/110lbs (already more than recently) x 6 reps, 60kg/132lbs x 6 reps. Then, right hand only 70kg/154lbs x 4 reps (did this a couple of sets trying to get photos). Switched to video and screengrabs 80kg/176lbs x 4 reps and finally 90kg/198lbs x 4 reps (more there if I wanted it lol)

    Bwt: 318lbs
