Newcy; half price Monday. 3 of us for less than £20 then I'm set for endgame

Rad: yeah. Last of the the few we had left. They never really crisp up in the oven so the others don't really like them. But thanks for completely ignoring my epic burger

Never ignored the burger just it was made from the mince you swapped over so didn't want to open that Pandoras box

Weight at 107 this morning so not really much of a drop on the last week so will keep an eye on this. Mobility work all feeling good this morning and ready to get my superhero gains on for Cpt Marvel this afternoon.
 
Smith Squats: 10x20, 7x40, 7x60, 7x90, 112.5x12, 11, 10, 9
Hack Squats: 10x40, 95x12, 10, 8, 8
Hamstring Curls: 8x#7, #9+5kg x13, 10, 8, 8, 7
Smith Calf Raises: 10x60, 112.5x14, 11, 11, 11, 9, 9
Incline Dumb-bell Curls: 17.5s x16, 13, 12, 11, 10
 
Warm up work all felt good enough but unfortunately things went t1ts up on my first set setting up. As I braced myself in under the bar I lifted my head up and got a rather unpleasant crack/crunch on my neck. From a training perspective for today this has just made things uncomfortable rather than untrainable, however, discomfort now is pretty high. I'm hoping it's just some muscular straining that needs to calm down. But back to the session. Squats went alright after that, work sets were up 2.5 and even finished up a rep (I'm at the volume and intensity level were progression jumps start to decrease in size). Hack squats were up 5kg, a decent start altho 4 sets still put in today. Ham curls were good for the extra weight, 5 sets done for volume but didn't tail off as badly as it can do. Calf work was so-so, all up on paper but TBH not 100% happy with the 'feel' of everything.... could be fatigue, could also have been the sore neck distracting me. Bicep work was just up a rep or 2, happy enough that I got a couple TBH as I know I'd let ego push me earlier than prescribed recently on these.
 
Tested some mobility and stretching to see if the neck would ease off, too early to have tried it really but mobility is actually OK just a few pain barriers to push thru

“Crack/Crunch” doesn’t sound very muscular to me mate?

I know it’s taken me 6 weeks to say anything , but wtf are you holding on to straps for a back squat on a smith machine? Front squat I can understand, but it if you really can’t get your mobility into that position, there are lots of other exercises you could do . Just looks so awkward mate.

There is no apparent issue with spinal mobility I'd say but the entire range of my traps feel tight and tender/sore... I'm not discounting the sound a few fibres going that close to my sense of hearing possibly sounding more brutal than it actually was. My mate is always keen to say that spinal cracking/popping is more than likely to be something going back in rather than out, so I may have dislodged and relodged something that has just caused some muscular spasms. He was off today tho so when I go in tomorrow hopefully he'll be in and can give me a quick once over.
 
I can't get the wide grip I like to squat with on the smith, especially when I need to rotate the bar to unlock the hooks so the straps give me the grip while still getting the movement in that I want for this block. They really aren't awkward at all, quite easy and comfy TBH

Things cracking and crunching doesn't sound great dude although the bangs and creaks I get off just getting out of bed these days are unreal I think we need constant physio just to keep mobile LOL
 
I woke up this morning with a huge fcuk off bruise on my inner thigh it wasn't there when I went to bed what's that all about ?
 
Sounds like your having a week like me I just feel bloody exhausted all the time.....the joys of getting old !!

Cracks/crunches/tenderness/soreness. Despite your perfect form these still appear, you must be just showing your age mate!
 
Epic burger though, can't beat a home made burger.

Cheers guys... other than feeling like I've taken a sledge hammer to the mid part of my back I feel OK. Mobility etc is fine (neck and upper traps have eased right off) just delicate where the traps originate which is a good bit lower than I would have said I heard/felt the crack. My mate gave me a quick 5 min look over and re-clicking and all seems fine, just muscle soreness/tenderness from whatever went on at that moment. 
 
He thinks I may have just soften when I braced under the bar for a brief moment (could have been as I breathed) and that threw things out when the load struck.
 
TH has been up to his usual standard.... the fvcking bed we bought for our Grandson just after Xmas (the one we sourced, paid for, collected and delivered) he has skipped in the house move. Their charity bail out they use gave them a mattress and bed (they couldn't have just a mattress for the bed it turned out), we were meant to have the new bed (still in flat pack) for when he stays with us and they were using the bed we got. But no, he decided to chuck it and rung the Mrs up saying he was struggling top put together the new bed (dunno what he thought we could do) - she went mental and hung up LOL Told me to tell him that I'm not impressed but what's the point, he doesn't give a crap about my opinion and his response would just piss me off anyway, I'll just remember to not bother next time. 24hrs they've been moved in and already pissing us off Dread to think how it all went with the final move with his old man

Back on the loss vibe today hitting 106.2kg this morning. Back/neck feeling better on waking, still sore mid-way down but looking promising.
 
Smith Decline Bench: 10x40, 8x60, 5x80, 105x12, 10, 9, 9
Pec Dec: #16 x13, 11, 10, 9
JM Smith Press: 65x14, 12, 11, 10
V Bar Push Down: #16 x16, 12, 11, 9
Dumb Bell SLR - 'Pinned': 10s x20, 17, 15, 14
DB Front Raise: 32.5kg x12, 11, 10
 
Mobility work went well despite the lingering discomfort, in fact some bits were moving better than they have done for a while it felt which was interesting. Bench also moved fairly well, unfortunately not a lot of extra work got out of the top sets tho, just the single extra rep altho next week will see a bit more weight and an extra set. Pec dec was solid tho, up to the next pin here and altho rep 1 took a hit all went well after that. Bit of a delay for JMs as I got my back quickly looked at after yesterday but popped a couple of reps or so in anyway. Upped push downs and they felt strong and the extra weight barely made a difference, still did a 4th set. SLRs up, didn't take the hit here I expected either hitting good reps. Swapped the plates for a DB on FRs, bit awkward and 32.5 certainly felt heavy too but all good to finish with.

Solid work mate!
 
People like that just don't appreciate things they are given. Unfortunately a result of not working for it themselves. Sad thing is they tend to go through it even faster and then get more from charity.
 
Glad to hear the back sounds like nothing too major mate.

It made me laugh when his Dad mentioned that now it's liveable they can take their time to get it now how they want it, colours and furnishings. I had to laugh, does he really think in 5 years time that place will look any different than it does today (I know he doesn't but forever being hopeful I guess). I bet even the unfinished rooms will remain unfinished now unless others say they'll help to do it. They may have a week or 2 of enjoying the novelty of a new house and do a bit more but by the turn of the month it'll just be another chore they can't be arsed to do.
 
Relieved with the back, but I have had this before so I was half hopeful that it would be OK

Didn't mind it... origin type films are always a bit slow to get going. Clearly not one of their better ones but perfectly watchable. Not too impressed with a superhero who runs like Pheobe from Friends, every time she ran...

There was a YT vid or something on how they did it. Bit disappointed in how Fury lost his eye. Was hoping for something a bit more heroic

Isn't a common theme throughout the various shows the different war tales he tells about the lost eye? Maybe they did it as a parody of the old sailor telling tall tales.

Still a little delicate but can feel the back improving slowly. Weighed in at 106.2 so a new lightest so far, 7kg off my heaviest this year.
 
Seated Cable Row (EZ): 12x #5, 10x #8, 6x#11, #14 x13, 13, 12, 11
Parallel Grip Chins: BW x11, 9, 8, 7
Standing Shrugs: 37.5kg x14, 11, 10, 10
Dumb Bell Spider Curls: 15s+1.25kg x14, 13, 11, 10, 9
Rope Curls: #11 x15, 13, 12, 11
Hack Calf Raises: 10x80, 105x18, 18, 16, 15, 14
Wrist Curls (Cable): #5+2.5kg x20, 18, 15, 11
 
Usual mobility work went fine and feeling good. Still stinging in the mod back but moving alright. Cable rows felt good altho there was a little click at some point but didn't seem to be anything. Wight was up a bit more than I would usually go but managed break even on reps by the end. Kept the extra set today for chins, progressing slowly on these, got 1 more rep out then tagged on the 4th set. Was a little worried how shrugs would go, didn't stop me upping the weight and managed to find a comfy enough groove to get an extra set done with too. Spider curls felt tougher than I would have liked, switched set up slightly and got on better and managed to get away without dropping weight down as I did last week, altho 5 sets were done. Rope curls were up for the same reps so they went better. Calves were another weird one again where the weight was up, the reps were up and felt good - they just don't grow at the same rate they seem top get stronger. Finally wrist curls again, up again here and up in reps (more due to having the time not be quite so quick between sets).
