Ox's - Activate Beast Mode!

My old journal has died, hence welcome to Ox's Insanity Journal Take 2!
 
You know what goes on in here so I won't go into details, for those new to my journal, take a look at my old journal here:
 
http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/Oxs-Journal-Of-Insanity-Strongman-and-Powerlifting-m4903716.aspx
 
I think its safe to say I train outside of said conventional wisdom and normal behaviour, makes things more fun and interesting.
 
Todays session as posted in my old journal:
 
Axle Push Press - in a very very heavy thunderstorm!
 
31.5kg x 20
66.5kg x 5
76.5kg x 5
86.5kg x 3
97kg x 8 + 2 + 2 REP PB
531 done...
106.5kg x 1
120kg x f but closest yet!
120kg x f again so close its crazy!
116.5kg x 1
109.5kg x 2
106.5kg x 3
101.5kg x 3 left it there as the lightning struck very close - I am a little nuts but not that insane!
 
Very pleased..the 97kg x 8 is a big rep PB, and I think there was 1 maybe 2 more there but rest paused it to get a little more done. According to the calculator that puts me on a 122kg max. I wasn't going to attempt anything too heavy today but the 106.5kg went up so fast I nearly thre myself backwards so decided to try the 120 again. Twice I nearly nearly locked it and i'm happy enough with that as I was fatigued from repping, it feels light on the shoulders now so know when fresh I have it in me and maybe a bit more, progress coming quickly. The main 531 set was very light and every rep apart from the last 2 were leg driven to lockout, no pressing involved, leg drive improving rapidly. It was raining VERY heavy the whole time I was out there and it was like being in a shower so I wasn't expecting much so very pleased. I saw lightning strike nearby on the last set so packed it in and went into The Ox Box for safety! Job done though.
 
Close Grip Bench Press
 
75kg x 5
85kg x 5
97.5kg x 3
110kg x 7 + 2 + 1 rep PB
531 done..
120kg x 2
125kg x 1
130kg x 1
132.5kg x 1
137.5kg x f
reverse green bands on
152.5kg + reverse greens x 3
152.5kg + reverse greens x 3
152.5kg + reverse greens x 3
152.5kg + reverse greens x 3
152.5kg + reverse greens x 3
triceps screaming!
160kg + reverse greens x 2
160kg + reverse greens x 2
160kg + reverse greens x 2
160kg + reverse greens x 2
160kg + reverse greens x 2
triceps now dying!
165kg + reverse greens x 1
165kg + reverse greens x 1
165kg + reverse greens x 1
165kg + reverse greens x 1
165kg + reverse greens x 1
165kg + reverse greens x f
bands off
110kg x 4
110kg x 3
110kg x 2
110kg x 2
110kg x 2
110kg x 2
105kg x 4
105kg x 3
105kg x 2
105kg x 2
 
Awesome  sets, crazy that 110kg x 7 is a rep PB, shows how little I've repped! All nice improvements though and I can finally feel some tricep work being done, really enjoyed all these sets.
 
Lying Paused Barbell Extension
 
45kg x 10
45kg x 10
45kg x 10
45kg x 8
45kg x 6
 
Triceps destroyed, my god these hurt after all the compounds, I can barely bend my arms!
 
Awesome session, pressing keeps getting better and everythings coming together with 531 and my method working well together, very happy indeed.
Another few months should see me hit 125kg on the axle push press and I have expectations for big big bench improvements over the winter.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
This afternoon I have done a 30 minute 30kg chain around neck walk and 2 deadlift walks around the block with 125kg then one walk around with 100kg sack on my back - this last one was TOUGH!
 
Deads and a few new bits i'm messing with tomorrow, hopefully my tight lower back will ease off by then.
 
Hope my regular followers will continue to follow my journal, i will do my best to keep some crazy stuff coming :)

Cheers Kian, you get used to it mate, just a case of building the volume over time, the body adjusts. My pressing was always my weakest movement, rapidly becoming a strong one :)

Dont know if iv ever asked you this before, but how long you been lifting? Im assuming it must have taken a long time to adjust to that kind of volume.

20 years mate but training has only really took off properly the past 7-9 years tbh and only like it is now the past 2-3 years, I wasted years tbh. If I had internet resources like we have now i'd be much further ahead, I experimented badly for years.

God bless the internet lol, I wasted years myself doing 10kg bicep curls and pushups till I finally had access to the net to research proper methods.

Cheers for following along lads, i'll try to keep things interesting in here :)
 
Fasted van push sscv this morning - no idea on distances but did it for around 15 minutes.
 
Back feeling more free this morning after an extensive rolling session last night and the Mrs gave me a deep tissue massage which has seemed to helped. Calf still not 100% but its nothing terrible, more rolling required.
 
Deadlift session later with a few new things i'm trying out after, I may just do the minimum required on deads or I may go all out for a rep PB on 232.5kg or I may try 270-275kg - all depends on how body is feeling.
 
Just had my delivery from The Protein Works and finally got some caffeine pills so will bang in 400mg of them beforehand, always used to seem to work nicely :)
