Nice work Nellers.
One of the early morning crew invited me to join in on bench press yesterday, starting at 40 Kg x10, and adding on each set without much of a rest. pecs are aching today

I'm not hitting 40kg on bench at all yet, and I'm only doing 5 x 5.

I wish I was big and strong like you, Mac. ;-)

Wow! Me too! 😉

I only bench 29kgs but I do lots of reps cos of it being a light weight. 3 sets of 15.

The gym owner had a word with me the other day about the fact that my 5x5 had stalled, and maybe I should shift the emphasis a bit; judging by the DOMS today, I may have found the right approach

temporary switch to 3 x 8 reps and dropping the weight at the mo after a bit of a twinge in my lower back. I've dropped the back squat to just 25kg but I'm making sure my torso is very upright and I'll build back slowly and very cautiously from here.
