Where did you get the DHA/EPA from and what did you pay for it (shipping wise etc)?

Got it from Water4, they cost me 13 € per package (= 90 capsules and recommendation is to take 3 per day) including shipping when I ordered 6 packages since they have "buy 2 get third for free" thing going on.

Still stupidly expensive.

Christmas: LOADS of awesome vegan food, including loads of superb seitan ham and other vegan foods. My family is all vegan, loves it! :)

Sat 27th December: back in business!

- Bench press, barbell: warm up @ 50kg, then 6 + 7 @ 84kg (next time MORE WEIGHT!)
- Incline bench press, barbell: 8 + 9 @ 66kg (more weight next time here too!)
- Dips: 8 + 10 + 8 @ bw + 10kg
- Bicep curls, curl bar: 5 x 5 @ 50kg (pretty clean reps this time)
- Lateral raises: 8 @ 14,5kg (too heavy, bad reps) and 3 x 8 @ 13kg

Bench press went really well. I should hit 1 rep max soon I guess.

Zack, all you have to do is to HTFU. ;) I think the inclines may be better because I do it around 30 degree angle. Maybe I should have more angle?

Sun 4th January

- Deep squat, barbell: warm up @ 66kg, then 6 + 6 @ 92kg (203 lbs), 10 @ 70kg
- Bent-over rows, barbell: 12 + 10 + 8 @ 70kg (I took them VERY deep, slowly and body near 90 degree angle, that explains the low weight)
- Bent-over rows, dumbbell: 10 + 10 + 10 @ 30.4kg per arm, left and right separately

Evening weight is hitting 181-182lbs which is a good thing I guess. :)

Wow Tuc, you are really getting strong now. Reading all of this is really tempting me to get a membership at a gym to see where I stack up. Great work Tuc! :D

Thanks BallZach! GO DO IT ALREADY! :boxer: (btw. I don't go to a gym, I just work out here in my bedroom ;) )

Sun 11th January

- Bench press, barbell: warm up @ 50kg, then 6 + 4 @ 88kg (woohoo best series ever, 6 reps @ 194 lbs! -> should mean 1 rep max @ 234 lbs) :boxer:
- Incline bench press, barbell: 7 + 7 @ 72kg
- Dips: 20 + 15 @ bw (20 is my personal best, easily!)
- Standing shoulder press, barbell: 5 + 5 + 5 @ 50kg

Damn, I've been way too lazy... but I've been saving my legs for a couple of days because I'm going to max my squat soon.

You are benching that much weight in your room? WOW :shock: Do you have a spotter?

Hi Tuc. Are you still training in your room ? Damn that's a lot of weight ! I used to train with bodyweight or with weights with long sets, now I train with heavier weights (6-12 reps) and I can tell you that on exercices like benc press, squats and deadlift you lift like nearly 3 times more heavy than I do ! :) Eventhough I'm lifting a bit heavier everyweek. It's just on some exercices which isolate a muscle group that I lift pretty much the same.

I was doing less and less deadlifts but now looking at your training log I want to try more.
Keep it up !

Quite impressive, BUDDAY, all this weight you're slinging around in your bedroom. These days I need a gym to stay motivated but I used to train in my parent's garage. I had a whole gym set up and I called it the Dungeon :twisted:

You just keep getting stronger and more swol. Love it!

BallZach, sometimes I have a spotter and sometimes I don't. In that last bench press training I didn't have but this week I did have. Depends on if I have a friend here working out with me.

Robert, I strongly suggest you do that. That way you can work out some muscle groups at home and you'll save time... but I guess there are quite a lot of ppl who really want to see you at the gym so it's kind of choose between your own spare time and public appearance.

IYM, yes, still working out in my bedroom. I'll take some pics if ppl want to see the stuff I work out with. Or vids if that is more fun. I guess my body fits somewhat well in deadlift since I have long hands and not that long back. I really suggest to do a lot of deadlifts since you get almost whole body workout with that!

L&G, I still don't have a name for my gym. The apartment in which I live with 5 veggie ladies is called "Linna" (= the Castle in Finnish) so Dungeon might be a good name here too. ^_^ Big & loving it! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogGynMLpgFY )

I already wrote all this once but my Mozilla crashed and I had to write all again from scratch:

Mon 12th January

- Modern dancing and some body control stuff
- Loads and loads of grip training

Tue 13th January

- Squats, barbell: warm up @ 50kg, then 1 @ 92, 1 @ 110kg, 1 + 1 @ 122kg. Otherwise ok but the once with 122 kk were a couple of cm short to be counted as proper lifts. I really have to work out my technique since I wasn't even close to my limit which my legs could lift but I tend to lean forward and such... :/
- Bent-over rows, barbell: 12 + 12 + 12 @ 70kg (again with big tilt, slow and long moves)

Wed 14th January

- 1h 45mins bboying
- 1h 45mins acrobatics with killer warm up

Sat 17th January

- Bench press, barbell: warm up @ 50kg, then 5 + 5 @ 88kg
- Incline bench press, barbell: 8 + 7 @ 72kg
- Dips: 17 + 16 @ bw

EVENING BODY WEIGHT 83KG = 183 LBS!!!

Sun 18th January

- Hammer curls, dumbbells: 10 + 10 + 10 @ 16kg
- Bicep curls, curl bar: 5 + 4 + 4 @ 50kg
- Bicep curls, barbell: 12 + 12 + 10 @ 35kg

BTW, I bought some protein bars... over 20 lbs ^_^
