    I don't really do those, and when I do they are for my own benefit. I am 5'8", 94-95kg, around 25% bodyfat, so you'll have to use your imagination lol

    Going back to the question about progress photos, you can sort of see progress in my Instagram feed, which is here. I posted a progress photo of sorts back in January where you can see the weight I had lost in my competition prep.

    Wednesday 11th July

    A Bench press

    Coach gave me heavy singles :love:

    5 x 80kg
    3 x 85
    1 x 95
    1 x 105
    1 x 112.5
    1 x 120 (PB)

    Butt came up off the bench a tiny bit on the 120 so it would likely have been a 'no lift' on the platform, but it was a strong press, waaaay better than the 117.5 I did in the gym in January. Decent bench PB should be incoming in September!

    B 1-board press
    4 x 3 x 95kg
    Left elbow starting to feel a bit irritable now

    C Larsen press
    2 x 10 x 80kg
    1 x 9 x 80kg (failed 10th)
    The second set was tough and I had an inkling I might not be able to complete the last set, so I took the collars off before the last one. The 9th rep was basically triceps-death but I decided to try for a 10th anyway and missed near lockout. Unfortunately a lady in the gym noticed I had failed and started to come over to help me just as I started to tip the bar towards her side - fortunately she saw what was happening and got her toes out of the way of the cascade of plates just in time!

    D1 DB press
    4 x 15

    D2 Cable curls
    4 x 20

    D2 Cable tricep extensions
    4 x 20

    Then watched England lose to Croatia in the world cup :cry:
