I had a Dominos last night, which was probably a VERY BAD idea 8 days out from competition; but I was 71.7kg this morning so I think I winged it. Phew! No more Dominos this week, though (not as if I ever have pizza twice a week anyhow!)

Today at the gym:

Squats: worked up to 3 x 3 @ 70kg. Felt fine but a bit sluggish, probably because my legs are tired after conditioning yesterday

Dimels, glute & ham raises, reverse hypers.

Bench: worked up to 3 sets of 2 @ 42.5kg, both with a pause. 

Seated shoulder press, front raises, tricep pushdowns. 

And then, Bethnal Green lifter Ernie Parkes turned up, fresh from the IPF Masters in Miami. He took 3rd place overall in masters 4; second in deadlift & 3rd in squat. So proud of him! To be deadlifting 220.5kg at 71 years old is AMAZING.
