Shoulder day!
Clean and presses. Two excersises for rear delts. Arnold presses, dumbell presses supersetted with side lateral raises. Also did some calf excersises and ab work.
Eating today went bad. When I tried to grind some seeds smoke came out from the grinder. I had to stop because it almost caught on fire. I'm pissed because it's brand new and I won't be able to fix a new one untill friday/saturday. This means I have only 8 energy bars left :shock:

I ate oatmeal with dates, raisins, coconut, hemp seeds, flax seeds. Hummus avocado sandwiches.
Trained: 14 grams of EAA
Dates, apples
Baked potatoe with kidney beans and veggies.
Energy bars.
I woke up really late and I'm going to bed now so not many meals at all. Hopefully I will do better tomorrow.

Okay so I ate pretty crappy today. Usually when I eat bad I think "It's impossible to train good" and my training also goes down the toilet. Today I decided "fuck that thinking, it sucks" and told myself I was going to have the most awesome work out since I started this new gym. So inspired by the golden era (reading a lot about Nubret lately) I did an arm session with 30-45 second rest inbetween sets. It was fucking crazy and I almost started crying (no not really, men with proper t-levels don't cry).
I did 5 sets of skull crushers supersetted with narrow grip bench press
5 sets of reverse grip cable pushdowns
4 sets of dips
5 sets of EZ curls (try resting 30 seconds between these, torture)
4 sets of Alternating dumbbell curls, dropsets
5 sets of cable curls

My arms were pumped, jacked, big, veiny, awesome and wiped out after this.

Eating (crappy as I said)
Breakfast: EAA, energy bar (ginger pear), oatmeal with raisins, coconut, cocoa and blueberries.
Snack: Tofu whole wheat sandwhiches, bell peppers and ruccola
Lunch: Nothing because I didn't think I would have to stay at the University.
Snack: Apple and pumpkin seeds
Snack: Two big energy bars (ginger pear) a banana
Training: 14 grams of EAA
I'm trying to work up my cals tonight by eating tons of dates, bananas and apples. I'm also making spinach, garlic, kidney bean, potato thingy for late night dinner.

Nothing to do but to do it :wink:

I trained legs today! It was a good session. I started with squats, but I felt they didn't give me much today so I only did three working sets. Moved on to leg press and did 5 sets focused on quads. Straight deadlifts, inbetween sets I did calf presses in the leg press. 2 sets of leg press focused on hamstrings. 3 sets of standing calf press supersetted with seated calf press. 3 sets of calf press in smith machine. I did some ab work inbetween a couple of sets.
Eating was not awesome but still okay. I cheated a little since they handed out free chocolate soy milk at the subway central.
Oatmeal, energy bar (ginger pear), coconut, raisins, cocoa
Pumpkin seeds, apple, banana
Kidney beans, white beans, spinach and potatoes
0,5 L alpro chocolate (CHEAT)
Two energy bars (ginger pear) Last ones, crap shit fuck
Training => 14 grams of EAA
2 bananas, way too many dates
Now I will probably eat some beans and tofu with greens. SIKE SIKE

I worked my chest today despite the fact that my triceps were extremely sore.
I did Incline DB presses supersetted with Incline flies.
Dips supersetted with pec dec.
DB bench presses.
Incline barbell press
Decline flies.
Machine bench pess supersetted with cross overs.
I rested about 45-60 seconds between sets only so it was hardcore. When I did the decline flies my chest acted funny, it was so filled with blood that it started jumping around and it looked like I had flubber instead of muscles.
I ate a lot today and I went to an awesome show where my friends Hårda Tider (Hard Times) played. This is a crew photo for their 7" we took this summer:

can you see me?

acctually I don't get sore. I only get sore when I'm not consistent with my training. But as I said, my chest acted up when it got too pumped. I know I dissed decline excersises but I have to say the flies felt pretty good. Still wouldn't attempt heavy pressing though.
