Strong benching, Tuc. Good to see the squat weights moving up steadily, too.

The best supplement for someone who is not eating enough and is therefore not recovering is more food.

Good numbers dude!
However your routine would look more awesome if you skipped the lateral raises and did clean and presses, they're awesome.

@ tiiti, it's just the beginning. A year ago I could bench press something like 50-60kg. You'll get the weights up too in no time! :)

@ Hilary, thank you sir! You're an inspiration and always there for support!

@ ralst, thanks! I'm really happy to finally get some weight on squats. My legs also start to look a bit bigger -> I can't wait to deep squats 100kg for reps! :boxer:

@ xjohanx, swedish pretty boy, when I look at big ass bbuilder vids they always do lateral raises. Lots of them. Cleans are mostly technique and are hardcore and I'm quite disco myself. :) ...no really. I don't do cleans because I don't have bumper plates. I train at home, remember!

Mon 29th September

2 h 15 mins bboying and popping. One of my bboy pupils (an exchange student from Taiwan) taught us some popping and it was jolly good fun.

Tue 30th September

- Deadlifts, barbell: warmup @ 74kg, then 1 @ 116kg, 4 + 4 + 1 x 134kg (should I do this with lower weights since my reps suck ass?)
- Bent-over barbell rows, barbell: 13 @ 74kg, 5 + 5 @ 92kg
- Deep squats, barbell: warmup @ 50kg, then 3 + 4 @ 86kg, 5 @ 78kg
- Bicep curls, curl bar: 4½ ( :oops: ) + 4 + 4 @ 50kg

I also made some kick ass noodle food! Whole corn noodles (~30g protein) with tofu (50g protein), chickpeas (25g protein), pumpkin seeds (15-25g protein), onions, oat cream, huge amounts of oil and spices, chili, and garlic. It must have at least 4396039069346893896389 calories!!!

I'm not xjohanx, but... overhead presses (not the cleans so much) are going to make your shoulders stronger and bigger than lateral raises will, IMO. Tho no reason you can't do both, and it looks like you already do :) But from what I've read in your log, the overhead pressing is behind the neck and with a curl bar. What's your reasoning for doing them that way?

Btw, what's oat cream taste like? Your noodle bowl recipe sounds good nutritionally (ie, lots of protein and calories :D) but I can't quite picture the taste.

oat cream tastes like soy cream but it has less fat usually.

@ xjohanx, I think I'll try them in my next session. That looks quite fun.

@ ralst, I do overhead pressing behind the neck because I want to keep my posture good. I use a curl bar because that is the one that has just the right weights and I'm lazy to take the plates on and off. :)

Wed 1st October

1h 45min bboying

Thu 2nd October

- Bench press, barbell: warm up @ 50kg, then 1 @ 92 kg (very easy), f @ 100kg ( :cry: ), 5 @ 82kg -> realized that it is a very s**tty day for benching -> no more normal bench today.
- Lateral raises, dumbbells: 12 + 11 + 10 @ 12kg
- Dips: 17 (PB) + 13 + 10 @ bw :mrgreen:
- Incline bench press, barbell: 5 + 6 + 4 @ 60kg

Disco alert. Disco alert.
In all seriousness, no respect for those unless you did either drop sets or supersetted it with another disco excersise straight afterwards. Sorry :wink:

Are you enjoying the C&Ps?

@ xphilx: Thanks mate! Agree, gotta look good in disco!

@ xjohanx: I AM as disco as it gets! Also, I am getting quite good results with my disco training. :popcorn:

Sun 12th October

Still a bit sore from the last training. Just deadlifts today. FYI: 150kg = 330lbs and 130kg = 287lbs.

Deadlift: warm up @ 70kg, then 1 @ 118kg, 2 @ 150kg, 1 @ 150kg, 1 @ 130kg

-> I realized that I need gloves. My hands hurt. -> I found some old gloves and took some more reps:

6 @ 130kg, 5 @ 130kg.


EDIT EDIT EDIT!!! EVENING WEIGHT 81.6 KG = 180 LBS :boxer: :boxer: :boxer:

I could drink some water and get myself over 82 kg but I don't see a reason. I reached 180 lbs and that was my target for now. Next target: get my morning weight over 80 kg (176-177lbs) all the time. Now I am a bit less if I'm a bit dehydrated.

If you mean that you catch the bar with your legs allmost straight it is a power clean. If you mean you keep your legs allmost straight all the way from the floor, then you really need to improve the technique ;) .
I'd imagine you get a really strange angle at the wrists using a curl bar for cleans?

Thanks bronco! Actually I did it like the vid above, so I didn't lift the cleans from the floor. Guess it's actually not clean at all but I got good pump with it so it's all good.

Mon 13th October

- Bench press, barbell: warmup @ 50kg & 62kg, 1 @ 94kg (super easy), f @ 100kg (lolfail), f @ 100kg (REALLY close!), 7 + 6 + 5 @ 82kg
- Dips: 13 + 13 + 8 @ bw
- Clean & press, curl bar: 5 + 5 + 5 @ 45kg (like last time)
- Bicep curls, curl bar: 9 + 7 + 7 @ 45kg

Next time I'll take that mf'ing 100kg (220lbs) bench press. I already thought I got it but about halfway there I lost my strength.
