westside for skinny bastards

will update...

Bench 5RM, 100kg, failed on 5th
Incline press, 2nd notch up, 4x10 - (10,10,8,8), 30kg
Dumbbell row, 4x10, 30kg
Rope pulls to throat, 3x12, 30kg

all fine, bench and incline press can stay the same
dumbbell row was comfortable
rope pulls were strange, 30kg tired me out a fair bit

Squats, 5rm, 160kg - cleared comfortably enough
lunges 4x8 - did the first two at 60kg but balance was awful, dropped to 40kg. in hindsight shouldnt have done these, wasn't quad dominant mostly glutes. might look to do single leg squats next week
romanian dadlifts 3x10 at 80kg - not done these in a long time, took it easy
didnt do grip work
