do you feel an advantage from changing your routine that often? especially when you´re cutting.

Yes I don't hit roadbumps that often and the training is more fun since I have variation and don't do the same routine for 4-6 months.

Shoulders and Lower Back

Weight x Reps (Wanted Reps If I fail)

WU = Warm Up Set
WK = Work Set
BO = Back-Off Set

+ if I am gonna increase weight next workout
| if I am gonna stay
- if I am gonnde decrease weight

Straps is used on Deadlifts since the bar is thicker than normal bars.

Shoulder Press Front (Seated Without Backsupport) - Waveloading


WU 20kg x 10, 30kg x 8, 40kg x 5 |
WK 45kg x 3 55kg x3 50kg x3 60kg x 3 +
BO 40kg x 10 +

Deadlift - Waveloading

WU 70kg x 8, 100kg x 5 120kg x 3 -
WK 130kg x 3 150kg x 3 140kg x 3, 150kg x 0 (3) -

Deadlift on Blocks (Smithmachine)

WK 160kg x 3 +

Abs

Comments: My stomach still gives me some trouble so I have stopped with the creatine and the preworkout drink. I overestimated the weight on the deadlift today so gonna correct that next time. But it always hard to estimate the weights in the first week of a new routine. Also my shoulder injury in my left shoulder is almost gone so I could do shoulder press to the front and they went fine considered I haven't done them for awhile.

Chest and Upper-back

Weight x Reps (Wanted Reps If I fail)

WU = Warm Up Set
WK = Work Set
EC = Eccentric Set ( Do the negative part and let spotters raise the weight )
BO = Back-Off Set

+ if I am gonna increase weight next workout
| if I am gonna stay
- if I am gonnde decrease weight

Straps is used on the rows since the bar is thicker than normal bars.

Bench press is alternated with the rows so first one set bench then one set rows.

Bench Press (Smithmachine) - Waveloading - Alternated


WU 40kg x 10, 50kg x 8, 70kg x 5 |
WK 92,5kg x 3 107,5kg x3 100kg x3 115kg x 3 +
EC 130kg x 3 +
BO 80kg x 18 |

Barbell Bent-over Row Low Bar - Waveloading - Alternated


WU 50kg x 8, 60kg x 5 70kg x 3 |
WK 77,5kg x 3 92,5kg x 3 85kg x 3, 100kg x 3 +
EC (Dumbell) 40kg x 5 (3) + (Largest dumbell on the gym need to find another solution)
BO 70kg x 20 +

Abs

Comments: Was afraid to have to much weight since the failure yesterday on the deadlifts. But instead it was to easy so I will bump up the weights next week. The bench press felt very easy but it's still in the crappy smithmachine so I won't compare it it to regular bench.

Changed name on diary and some in the introduction since my diet isn't that serious anymore. Still has pretty low calorie intake but can't do cardio since I have to much work in school.

Chest and Upper-back

Weight x Reps (Wanted Reps If I fail)

WU = Warm Up Set
WK = Work Set
EC = Eccentric Set ( Do the negative part and let spotters raise the weight )
BO = Back-Off Set

+ if I am gonna increase weight next workout
| if I am gonna stay
- if I am gonna decrease weight

Straps is used on the rows since the bar is thicker than normal bars.

Bench press is alternated with the rows so first one set bench then one set rows.

Bench Press (Smithmachine) - Waveloading - Alternated


WU 40kg x 10, 60kg x 8, 80kg x 5 |
WK 95,5kg x 3 112,5kg x3 105kg x3 120kg x 3 +

Abs

Comments: Fun workout bench went fine on 120kg but will only increase 2.5kg next week since I rather succeed on 122,5kg than fail on 125kg. Will do another workout tomorrow since I wasn't able to train on last Thursday.

Comments: Gonna report my abs also since I will start focus some more on them. Increased 5kg on shoulders and it worked out well but will only increase 2.5kg next time. Some dude that I spotted when he did benchpress came and asked if I wanted spotting right when I was about to press up my third rep on 65kg and that was a little bit disturbing but I managed to ignore him and do what I had to do. On the deadlifts I found a better weight than last time which was good. How much I will increase next time is probably depeding on how I feel that day. Next workout Tuesday. Forgot that I also did a extra set of dips to see how many I managed to do.
