Deez bricks. 5 reps with roughly 70 lbs. Better than my previous max of 4 reps. Focused on the slow negative on the last rep. I might need another brick to test for 1 rep max, but I think I'll need a longer chain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
DIYers, If you're looking for a cheap alternative to buying weights that cost $1/lb, bricks are the way to go. Oh and get a concrete drill bit unless you want to ruin your wood drill bits like me.
Box jumps are an awesome and effective way to get your heart rate up while working the core and lower body muscles. But did you know that they help improve your balance and coordination which works your brain? They are known to increase your endurance and athleticism! Tag a workout buddy and get those boxes out! #boxjumps

Day 4 of the #bbcomchallengeseries
so that means it's push day number 2 for the week! I'm used to working in the 10-12 rep range, so for my first 3 day training cycle of the week the aim is to hit the top end of the hypertrophy range and be spent at 12 reps. For the 2nd push/pull/legs cycle it's time to go heavier man! Trying to stick at maxing out at 6 reps, although working between 6-8 reps this week while I adjust because it's been awhile since I lifted heavier! Still salty about the fact that I can't lift as much weight now as I could this time last year though. However I am 2 stone lighter now compared to then, and I'm working on getting that strength back bit by bit so it's all good man!
Deffo need to pay much more attention to maintaining form when down at this lower rep range so that's next week's goal. Need to keep the standing shoulder exercises for the 12 rep range at the moment as well. I clearly need to be seated for that Arnold dumbbell press, and I need to isolate the shoulders aswell and work each one individually because that left delt is lagging behind!
Looking forward to next weeks training sessions, time add some new stimuli. Gonna switch up my lifting tempo from 2:2 to 1:3 so that I can really feel that burn on the eccentric portion of the lift. Gotta cause as much damage as possible to those muscle fibres in order to get the maximum amount of growth possible!🏋️♂️💪🌿👌😁
