    Friday
    Chilled / rest day

    Saturday
    Big crowd in. Lots going on. Had to show a friend of a friend the door. One beer too many and he's 'I wanna lift' and I'm 'no'. The crowd of guys may have raised the tension a tad. Original friend embarrassed. Because of what we do and how often we do it outside guys with some spare testosterone think they can have a go. Not for free and not without potential injury. I've said on more than one occasion they should see the yard as my front room. The door may be house open but that doesn't mean every ones welcome to make themselves at home. I'd be the same with theirs. Ditto the gym.

    Wednesday
    Viewing today (just been). Jason dropped by. Body part training due so worked on CGBP to a max to see what was what.

    CG Bench Press
    Bar x 15 reps, 40-kilos x 3 reps, 60-kilos x 21 rep, 80-kilos x 1 rep, 100-kilos x 1 rep, 120-kilos x 1 rep, 130-kilos x 1 rep*, 60-kilos x 2 x 15 reps

    * some discomfort. Of note today is the heat here. Yesterday and perhaps why I did so well today it was as warm and Jacek and Nev went over 100-kilos on the RT handle. Amazing for both.

    Tuesday pm *Decided to have a go at benching again. Made a right cock of my first 120-kilo single by getting stuck on the other bench with n one around to help. Having rolled it off etc I now have a mark or three. I switched to the rack and bench set up. CG Bench bar x reps, 40-kilos x 6 reps, 60-kilos x 6 reps, 90-kilos x 3 reps, 100-kilos x 1 rep, 120-kilos x F*, 1, 1, 1, 1 (last was best) Wednesday Woken at stupid o'clock by the local police helicopter. I thought some idiots was being chased. As it later turned out 60 morons here decided to copy some of the other dolts that were kicking off nationwide. Pretty much at either end of my street. Made me furious. 2HP worked to attempts at +81.25-kilos and +80.5-kilos but it seems all I can do for a few singles is +80-kilos

    Still dealing with some BS here... once done and dusted the road will be smoother (I hope).

    V/Gripper
    Interesting to note (or brag) that I am, at least with my right hand, matching the winning level (Paul Knight L19) of the most recent WSH competition. Not once but multiple times per session. Come on chaps if I enter the fray I'll push ya ;)
    B/H: usual
    L/H: 5/6+B (eqv to a little more than level 16) x 1, 1, F, 1, 1, 1, 1.
    R/H: 6/7 (eqv to L19) x 5 x 1 reps, upped to 7/7 (L20) x N, N, N.
