    I think the angle makes it look worse than it is, but i'll pay a bit more attention to it next deadlift session. Good to have you back @Jester

    Still struggling with some kind of stomach bug that I've had since Sunday. Hardly been able to eat or drink anything, but when you're 5 weeks out from comp you got to get the work done.

    Deadlifts
    220kg x1
    200kg x5(x3)

    2ct Pause Bench
    132.5kg x1
    122.5kg x4 (x3)

    Havent posted in a while... been having a bit of a family crisis. Unfortunately my younger brother decide to end his own life a couple of weeks ago which hit me pretty hard so training has taken a bit of a back seat. Managed a few sessions here and there but more as therapy and an outlet for my emotions than anything productive.

    Still going to compete in 2 weeks time as I know my brother would give me a hard time of I pulled out.

    So this mornings session I managed;

    Squat w/Belt
    185kg x1 @8rpe
    180kg x3 @9rpe
    170kg x3 x2 sets @7rpe

    Comp Bench
    142.5kg x1 @8rpe
    140kg x3 @10rpe
    130kg x3 x2 sets @8rpe

    That sucks mate.

    Words always fail at times like this, so I’ll keep it simple - hope you’re going to get to ‘OK’.

    Ah mate... I'm so sorry to hear that. Don't know what to say, but I know you'll get through this. It's never easy... and it's okay to feel whatever you're feeling.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your loved ones mate

    Thanks @Jester, @mickc1965, @_Simon_, @adpowah Really appreciate your words.

    Like the cliches go I suppose it will get easier with time, and life goes on and all that. Had the Funeral Tuesday so can start re building and moving on. Still pretty painful at the moment though :(

    Been trying to train when I can and still going to compete in a couple of weeks. Weight training is a bit like life, no matter how heavy it gets you just got to keep on pushing.

    Good luck mate.

    As far as the lifting goes; looks solid, 3rd attempts are for pr’s.

    Thanks mate. To be honest I'm not planning on hitting PR's (unless they are there on the day) Just going to have fun and hopefully make 9/9

    The Plan for Saturday;

    Squat
    Attempt 1 - 180kg
    Attempt 2 - 192.5kg
    Attempt 3 - 202.5kg

    Bench
    Attempt 1 - 140kg
    Attempt 2 - 150kg
    Attempt 3 - 157.5kg (would be PR)

    Deadlift
    Attempt 1 - 220kg
    Attempt 2 - 235kg
    Attempt 3 - 247.5kg

    Goal total - 607.5kg

    May change depending on how the openers feel. At the start of prep I had planned on hitting the 620kg total needed for British qualification.
