I'll video the set up mate, it works very well and is comfortable for me so hopefully you'll find the same.

Thanks mate, feeling good again shoulder wise so we shall see but I'll get back there. Last time I trained for bench a 7 years ago I managed a 205kg with a pause, was aiming for 230 and a double with 180kg in CGBP in my 40's so all going well should get close again over the coming year.

Your opening post is quite a thorough plan Dav, you're sure to reach your goals.

Yeah, shoulder niggles are the worst aren't they just? I've always been weak in that area, but we persevere don't we. Never give up mate and best wishes in your competing journey :)

Thanks mate! Yes I love the gym and after years of not competing and working around gyms I'm back PTing and looking to compete next year!

As we get older things don't get any easier but I'm loving researching and reading all the great information available now and trying new things out. Fingers crossed with the Powerlifting I'd love to compete into my 60's and beyond!

Decent workout today, taking a slightly different approach and increasing reps/volume by a rep or two for the next 4 weeks and then reduce reps for last 2 weeks.

Yoga stretches

Squat

4x4 185kg

SLDL (paused)

1x6 150kg
1x6 180kg
1x6 200kg

Coan bent over rows

1x6 150kg
1x5 165kg

Parallel bar dips

1x10 25kg
1x10 45kg
1x8 65kg

Seated front press from pins (forehead height)

1x6 60kg
1x6 75kg
1x6 90kg

Relatively light but first time doing these so will build up weight over coming weeks

Body saws

2x10

Tried the SBD knee sleeves for the first time today (squats). Much tighter than my Rehbands particularly around my calves. Got them on and initially felt very stiff and "strange" compared to 2 years wearing the Rehbands. But the proof would be how they performed whilst squatting.

Did they make the same weight feel easier, in a word no. They don't build heat around the joint like the Rehbands and don't feel as comfortable. BUT on my heavy sets due to their more stiff nature did give me more confidence once in the bottom position. I changed back to the Rehbands when doing SLDL for comfort and little support/warmth.

SBD sleeve positives v the Rehbands

Slightly higher quality/better made
Longer so I guess would be a little more supportive
Stiffer (good and bad) so gave me more confidence when squatting heavy

Negatives v Rehbands

Less comfortable (due to stiffness)
Don't build warmth like the Rehbands
Can't be worn for long durations
Size/tightness around the knee dictated by calve size - they are more tapered than the Rehbands and stiffer.

Solid work all round mate. SLDL is very impressive!
 
What are body saws? Is that with that ab wheel thing?

Hi mate thankyou, all going in the right direction.

No they are a fairly "advanced" core exercise. I extend my arms to almost straight which obviously makes them harder and hits the abs and obliques like nothing else.

Progressive volume is a pretty foolproof plan of attack

Yes DV all a bit new to me this time around so am trying different approaches to see what suits me as a 50 year old lol. When I was younger I could just train hard and heavy, eat loads and the weights went up, not so now.

I pause at near the bottom of the lift mate just below the knee (probably a few inches off the ground). First week I've tried it but enjoying the tension on the hamstrings and it will help with explosiveness from the floor or that's the hope.

I always play a little music on the way to the gym after a strong coffee to hype myself up. It seems Brett gets into arguments with fellow drivers to prepare for a workout (joking mate😂). Me I just need something like this as I find music of a certain genre really helps;

Brutal and beautiful at the same time
