From what I can remember these are my max weights ever for the following exercises.
Deadlift – 150kg (1 rep with wrist straps)
Bench Press – 62.5kg (Although reduced now due to bad shoulder)
Squats – 60kg
Bicep Curls – 35kg
Clean and Press – 30kg (Technique is all to fuck)
There’s a few more but I can’t remember them all, and those are the 5 which I want to improve. I don’t think a deadlift of 200kg is an outrageous thought for example.
I had a session with Mark my PT, which was strenuous to say the least.
I did 6 or 7 sets of deadlifts, starting on 60kg for warm-up, for 1 set, then 100 or 110 kg for the last 5 with little rest between sets. That is a fucking strenuous exercise and I would have lifted in excess of 6 tonnes with my legs and lower back.
Then we went on the bench press, and did 100 reps, 10 sets of 10 with 10 seconds rest between each set……fuck me, that hurt. Started off with 40kg for about 6 sets and went down to 30 for the last few. Still hit failure a few times too lol.
THEN…he had me do 5 pull-ups, 10 body row and 10 press-ups…for 10 mins…not fun lol.
Then we did kettlebell swings for 15 mins and after that I collapsed in a heap and had to be fork lifted out of the gym. Lol.
