          Let me see how trying to match you goes first.

          I'll deal with Markus next week!

              I haven't loaded up heavy dips in a while, but this sounds like a good challenge. I think this would be fairly achievable for me, but maybe I'm grossly overestimating myself.

                Nah. It's harder for Markus to achieve than you or I because he has the better part of 100 lbs of bodyweight on us.

                  He's only about 230.

                    Hmm. In that case, I'll out-dip him and take his lunch money!

                    I was 159.6 this morning. Mr. A tends to weigh around 165 if I remember correctly.

                      I was a gnats testicle under 200 on the scale last night, definitely going to have a shed a few pounds for summer !

                        Yeah, I intentionally decided to compete in PL in May, figuring my sports and beach-season body composition goals should line up for a change this year. I'll have to make 148 then, but probably will be comfortable walking around closer to 155.

                        Now give me yer lunch money!!!

                            I like your workout straight away because your reps often fall on odd numbers which tells me that you are pushing to failure and not just to some predetermined number. As soon as you see someone list reps such as 10,10,8 throughout their routine you can pretty much bet they did not train to failure.

                              • Today, Friday is my workout day. About over a year ago I got into superslow training in which a person lightens up on the weights and trains for time instead of reps and sets. The usual exercise for me requires four 15 second reps where time under load and tension is about 60 to 90 seconds. I do between three to five exercises back to back. This way I combine strength training with metabolic conditioning. It seems the only people who knock it are those who have never seriously tried it.

                                Deadlift
                                Wall squats using foam roller at the back
                                incline bench press
                                chest supported rows
                                handstand hold against a wall
                                weighted chins

                                That will do it for me today.
