Nakkered and aching from helping to put a shed roof on yesterday haha 15000 steps up and down a hill, but the gym never dies!!

Kept it brutal yet simple, keeping the reps low and the weight high!

All the way to achieving failure on 130kg incline press.

80kg 3reps
90kg 3reps
100kg 3reps
110kg 3reps
120kg 3reps
130kg 2reps

Failing the third rep on 130kg.

FAILURE ACHIEVED!!

VALHALLA AWAITS

the day after I then did

DECLINE

basically watch this one as I was a beast but I'll say a new mahoosive PB was achieved!!

Third workout:

Quick play on light weights from yesterday, you can't go heavy all the time, keeps the mind and body fresh

100kg 20reps

I enjoy watching both, but I'm a powerlifter.

I don't train traditional powerlifting programs tho, I mix a lot of bodybuilding concepts into my training (try to keep the best of both) with a focus on strength and thickness of muscle.

I have no interest in aesthetics, when I was young I was interested more so in the bodybuilding side of things, but I don't have the genetics for it in any way whatsoever, so as I got older and realised this I developed .y passion for powerlifting :) never looked back since

In short I suppose you could call me a powerbuilder lol

Me and my father in law doing dome Viking press, always loved this movement so I am so glad to have now attained the equipment to do so. I got up to 110kg for 20 easy reps

Newest video in my ongoing series "Training for VALHALLA" (which is the inspiration for this group's name).

Front squat and back accessory work, presented in a new format so hopefully I'll be able to post more frequently.

Sick pump and #gainz using the simplest of formulas

Heavy weight x reps = GAINZZZZZ

At the end of my heavy phase now, so will be lots of volume work very soon.

At the end of each of my phase I take my basic measurements to get a rough idea on thos GLORIOUS GAINZZ

Today measured in at

Weight: 20st10lb (290lb/131.5kg)
Chest: 54inch (137cm)
Waist: 44inch (111cm)
Wrist: 8inch (20cm)
Forearm: 16inch (41cm)
Bicep: 21inch (53cm)
Thigh: 38inch (96.5cm)
Calf: 17inch (43cm)

Proper pleased as most of my measurements are basically the same as 3months back,except I've gained 4lb in bodyweight, but lost 2 inches from my waist. Going for strength this coming year rather than gains, I feel big enough now for a little while, so if I grow I grow, but I won't be forcing it, instead I'll be focusing (first time ever) on pound for pound strength. Time to chase those pbs!!!
