I know it's ambitious but I would rather set targets too high than too low, don't wanna get complacent :p

Those are good numbers, what time frame does that give you?

Just as a guideline, it took me 3 months to go from a 140 max DL to 180kg. If you're looking at say 120kg to 170 (that's a 10kg gain on what I did but working with slightly less weight), I'd be looking at probably at least 4 months if you're approaching the training in a sensible way. So saying that, I think you could probably aim for around a 10kg improvement each month, at least for the first few months mate :) :)

Well I have until may when my course finishes so 6 months total! I'm pretty confident with the DLs but unsure on the bench

you reckon? :p well we'll see, like I said I'm very confident I'll get the dead lifts I need but not sure about bench, it's weird I do a lot of assistance for bench and not a lot for dls yet my dls are constantly getting better and my bench is a marathon..

Not such a good session today :/ the mrs got up for work at 5am woke me up and I couldn't get back so just got up too, went to college early and cut out early to use the gym at 12:30.
Squats, very low, set the catch to below hip height and touched it with the bar each rep. My buddy rested on the catch and got himself stuck :lachmal: he found it funny so it was fine.
Empty safety bar (25kg) x 8
45 Kg x 6
55 Kg x 5
65 Kg x 5
75 Kg x 5
75 Kg x 10

Leg press 4 heavy sets

Dumbbell shoulder press, I'm making very little to no progress with these..
(Weight is for each dumbbell)
10 Kg x 8
15 Kg x 8
20 Kg x 6
20 Kg x 5
Rubbish

Side raises, 3 sets

Pressup challenge! Decided to do them slower and lower to make it more fair
Casey - 35 reps
Ross - 36 reps (could have done more but felt spiteful :p)
2-2!

Tricep isolation 4 sets 10 reps

After seeing MFs breakfast photo I thought I would post my post workout meal
Blueberry juice with 30g brown rice protein powder + 5g creatine
2 homemade braised tofu subs with tigertiger (vegan) mayo and iceberg lettuce in a french stick! Oh yeaaaah 8)
