One Week Closer

Here we are another weeks training done and getting closer to the Western Europeans in September. It has been a great week and I have to say I have hit some PB’s this week.  For a change I did some squats and benches with a few of the guys down Burns Gym. The squats were 262.5Kg for doubles and feeling good I did a set of 4, half a suit and with knee wraps on. The bench was 180 also for doubles and again I squeezed a set of 4 out in the last set. Deadllifts went well working up to 217.5Kgs for a few sets at the start of the week. So on the whole being a busy week and with the routine all over the shop because of holidays and children off school I am more than pleased with the week’s progress. My weigh is around 75Kgs most of the time and I am now starting to feel the benefits of the weight, I still need to do some cardio though to get a bit fitter towards the comp but I am sort of hoping this one will be the one that makes up for the rest of them this year. It has been a badly planned year and I hope to make amends at the WEC.

I have some big lifts in me and think I just need the right time to bring them out, what with a good build up and the preparation being right I can get them out. Hope you guys like the video and feel free to comment on any of the posts in the blog.

5 Weeks to go

Here we are just over a month till the Western European Cup.  In the next few weeks I am going to get a few video from the weeks highlights. I am now back to full training mode back with a vengeance after the Welsh Counties. I did a few sessions last week to keep myself up with the weights and focused.  They were a bit harder than normal but what with doing the comp last week it was to be expected.  I have started to add some kit to the main lifts a training suit to squat with and only half way. Nothing for the deadlift as of yet, and a loose training shirt for the bench.  In a few weeks I may introduce a suit for the deadlift but for now I want to keep going at it without a suit.

Welsh Counties 2012

It has been a while but here is the update from the last weeks training and the Welsh Counties at the weekend.  Training has been going well and I decided to do a local comp to test my new kit from Titan. I did not want to push it too hard as my main event is going to be next month in Luxembourg.

This weekend was more of a fun comp and it was good to see so many new faces and the usual old ones. Weighing in at 74.4Kgs I did 2 squats ending on 285Kgs, 3 Bench presses 195/202.5/210Kgs, then again 2 deadlifts ending on 247.5Kgs for a 742.5Kg total. I have posted the video from the day below for you to see. I would like to thank Titan for the New Kit and along with my Supplements From NRG Fuel I am  on target for something good next month
