  • Bench:

    60kg x 3
    80kg x 3
    80kg x 3
    107.5kg x 3
    100kg x 5
    100kg x 3
    100kg x 3
    100kg x 3

    Really wanted to make sure my form was ok on this and I was training with a knowledgable chap so I took full advantage. Managed to keep things tight and I'm a lot more confident about my bench now.

    Incline Db press:
    40kg x 6
    40kg x 5
    40kg x 5

    The volume of the flat bench got to me here, 30 seconds rest between each set too so I'm ok with it.

    Dips:
    Bw+ 20kg x 8
    Bw x 8 x 3

    Incline Flies:
    25kg x 8
    22.5kg x 8

    Cable Flies x 8-These are a **** exercise and i'm never doing them again.

    Tricep Pushdowns


    Decent enough session, happy to get my form down on the flat bench, although the guy I was training with noticed I fatigued very quickly. The first 2 reps were generally very strong but the 3rd was noticeable a lot weaker.




  • Deadlift:
    70kg x 5
    70kg x 3
    110kg x 5
    110kg x 3
    150kg x 1
    150kg x 1
    150kg x 1
    180kg x 1
    200kg x f

    Failed on the 200 when I should have been going for 190. Spent a lot of time getting my form correct today.

    15kg x 6 x 3
    bw x 6 N-grip

    30kg x 10 x 2




  • Just realised i've hit the 1000 views mark on this, so I've decided to compare my lifts from the day I started this log to today.

    18/September - 8/November
    Bench: 100kg x 5 - 115 x 1 Happy enough with that. I've no doubt i'd get 120 for 1 if I tried too.
    Squat: 120kg x 5 - 130 x 1 Not happy with that, realistically that's no change what so ever. I think I need to get the finger out and start squatting multiple times a week.
    Deadlift:160kg x 1 - 180kg x 1. Happy with that.

    Overall it's ok progress really. A lot of it might have been down to increased body weight. I think I might need to structure my workouts better throughout the week and not have "chest days" "back days" etc

    I knew the second I did my first rep I wasn't in the game today as far as deads go. Tight everywhere and lacking power off the floor in a big way. Should have stretched more over the weekend and last week.

    Aren't Kroc rows extreme high rep? I think he recommends sets of 20+ reps etc...
    Matt Kroc wrote: »
    I recommend shooting for at least 20 reps and not increasing the weight until you can get at least 25 reps with each arm. I've gone as high as 40 reps per set and my back was pumped beyond belief afterward....

    ...

    After two to three warm up sets, go balls out for one max set attempting to hit either a weight or rep PR and shooting for at least 20 reps per set.




  • I probably shouldn't be calling them Kroc rows, they're just single arm dumbbell rows that I do with my shoulders higher than my hips cause I've to improvise most of the time in UCD where I do my rows!

    First time front squatting, the weight was no problem at all but I kept it down because I wanted to get the technique right and come the last set I was happy with it. Would have done more but I got kicked out due to closing time!

    Pushdowns;




  • Deadlifts:
    70kg x 5
    110kg x 5
    150kg x 5
    170kg x 1

    Left it at that. First time i've done proper deads in a while. Felt good.

    Due to Ucd being robbed of a foam roller Students no longer have access to stuff like the dip belt, fat gripz etc as such I can no longer take advantage of weighted pull ups unless I get my own chain belt or I do the the ghetto way, which I hate. Balls.

    A karate/martial arts belt can be used in place of a dip belt. I think you can pick them up for less than a tenner.
