#chestday ๐Ÿ˜ 3x5 at 115kg, 132.5kg and 150kg. The 150kg was a bit funny first I didnโ€™t have the bar, and see it drop a little when I sayโ€my barโ€ oops ๐Ÿ˜ฌ and the last rep hit my #stickingpoint and had to fight to get passed it. Other #presswork #inclinebench at 80kg and #pausedbench at 120kg with #triceps and #biceps works as well ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿป#rafpowerlifting #powerlifter #powerlifting #power #carlislepowerliftingclub #strong #strongest #strongereveryday #strongman #beast #beastmode #gains #pecs #militarymuscle #policemuscle #bandana #bandanaofpower #chestdaykeepsalegdayaway #chestdayisthebestday #531training

#cardioday and as itโ€™s cooled down enough to train out side decided to do a bit of #mancardio.4x#tyreflips up and down the football pitch . Can see the sand and dust kicking up after each flip. God knows how much I inhaled๐Ÿ˜ฎ. Followed by hitting the big monster #tyre with a #sledgehammer, 4x20.First time doing them and enjoyed it. #rafpowerlifting #powerlifter #powerlifting #strong #strongest #strongereveryday #strongman #strongmantraining #beastmode #beast #gains #calfs #hamstrings #quads #hipflexors #lats #traps #deltoids #grip #forearms #hands #gymlife #bandana #bandanaofpower

Really hope thereโ€™s something wrong with the #heartratemonitor ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ณ. This was after my final 30sec #sprint. Thou at one point Iโ€™m sure it was 201๐Ÿ˜ต hopefully it was either the transmitters or receiver that was faulty, hopefully.
