Looking good man!
Good work on the chin-ups and bridges! Those kicked my ass when i started out, haha.
I'm happy with the chin-ups but my pull-ups are so pathetic. I can only manage 1 from a dead hang then I have to switch to negatives. I've been trying to practice them when I can but I just seem to tire myself out then I can't even do 1. It's depressing
The prone bridges are hard, I done these a few weeks before starting stronglifts. Always about half way through them I start to shake uncontrollably but somehow manage to hold them (keeping a straight line) till the end...thank god i workout at home
Wed 17th June 09
Squats 30kg 5x5
Bench Press 25kg 5x5
Inverted rows - Tried normal ones again, done about 6 but i'm still falling way short of the bar. Switched to on my knees, done 13, then 7
Push-ups - 17, 8 (for the life of me I couldn't do anymore...maybe i didn't rest long enough), then 8 again (i need to get a good rucksack so i can start doing weighted ones)
Inverted rows - 3x12 (i use a dumbbell as a counterweight...took one of the plates off to make it harder to stabilize. The last few were REALLY burning, was rolling about on the floor in pain for 10seconds after this
I have a concern...when i was 9 I broke my left elbow. Yesterday afternoon after moving it I got a very slight weird feeling on my arm starting from my elbow. I woke up in the middle of the night to get water and I had to stretch my left arm a couple of times to get rid of a dull pain. A few times today (including during workout) when i twist my arm I've had a sharp, but not intense, pain in my elbow. I've had no problems with my elbow since i got it fixed...I hope it isn't the weights. I'll give it a couple of days see what happens.
Last night when I put my hand on my hip I thought "there used to be a bone here
" seems I'm starting to get a belly for the first time in my life haha - i'm loving it!
