well today was my first post and unluckly Andy (my training partner) is crook and has postponed for allll week which stuffs me right up cos i have to use the smith for my incline or find a spotter with some time...

although i got thru all 3 sets of 8 of my flat and incline bench without failing and without dropping the weight which was good

today was day two, still no training partner, so i couldnt do squats properly and usually i love them but oh well
my arms are stronger and so are my hams
i love the progression from this routine

training with no spotter is bad news, i was benching today and got to the second last rep in my second set and struggled but pushed it out easy enought to think, 'yeah one more i can do that' so i came down and uh ohhh i cant push anymore so i was left sitting there with 200lbs sitting on my chest with no where to go
lucky enough one of the other guys in the gym was smart enough to realise i was in trouble and helped me lift it off. other than that i trained well, im fucked now
cant wait for my partner to come back tho

day 2 again, no spotter but that was ok,
today was good i trained heavy and altho there was no-one to give me a hand when i was near failure i pushed it and kept goin
preacher curls suck tho
my lats are gettin bigger i think ;)
