On a quick note i ended up doing some cardio on Sunday arvo. i did 15mins on the treadmill and then did some 25m runs with 100kg farmers.

Deads from platform (no straps)
100 x 15
140 x 12
160 x 8 x 4
180 x 6 x 3

Lat pulldowns
85 x 12 x 3

Seated rows
130 x 12 x 3

Barbell curls (with swing on 60 & 70kg)
30 x 10 x 2
60 x 8 x 4
70 x 6 x 2

Decline crunches with 10kg weight on chest
4 x 20

1/2hr jog then stretch for 15minutes

I was really into it this arvo and am feeling very strong! My deads have improved so much in the last few moths that i am considering going for a 260kg lift in the coming weeks…maybe more??

The cardio and stretching is already paying off as i have heaps more wind in the gym already and my lower back is no longer hurting AT ALL and i attribute this to the advice i read on “stronglifts”. It states that the lower back area should be regularly stretched to acheive better lifts and with everything I have read lately in regards to stretching i thought I’d better get with the program and my flexibilty is alot better already.
