Well not really…I had a bet with Michael Sullivan in Utah that I could get 21 reps at 100kgs. I don’t remember if I tried and failed or didn’t try it at all at the time and I can’t remember if the bet was for $100 or $500…at this stage I’ll go with $100. Anyway yesterday after I got my 180kg and missed 190kg twice I thought I’d have a crack at 21reps at 100kg. Now…to be fair to myself…which I always am…unlike how I am with athletes…the 2 misses at 190kg did not make for an optimal warm up and I was more than a little fatigued. Basically I just wanted to get all my excuses in before you watched the video.
Sooo close but not close enough.
I’ve set myself a few goals I would like to achieve before Christmas.
1. I want to bench 185kg…I would just like to crack that 400lbs mark and put some bait out there on the record board for other lads to chase.
2. 25 reps at 100kgs…I want to well and truly clear that 21rep mark that Sully said correctly that I couldn’t do.
3. I’m going to get back down to 105kgs by trying to drop around a kilogram a week.
