Dan's training Log

#1 Postby dan beaton » Wed Dec 23, 2009 6:14 am

Today I start my Vegan Bodybuilding regime

At my strongest (About 3 months ago) my personal bests while being on a pescatarian diet have been:

Bench press 8 reps on 100kg/220lb
Deadlift one rep on 190kg/479lb
squat I rep on 140kg/309lb

At present having not really trained probably for several months

pull ups (full lock out): 15 > 10 > 8 > 7
squat: 8 reps on 100kg (x 4)
bench: 8 reps on 85kg (x4)
dead lift: 6 reps on 120kg (x4)
dumbell shoulder press: 8 reps on 30kg (x 4)

Lets see if these increase

Having sustained a wrist injury, I am now unable to train my upper body. I am using this negative situation as a positive chance to focus on my legs, core and abs. Thusly, I will be training legs, core and abs 3 times a week, though I am unable to squat due to wrist positioning.

Leg extension
105kg x 8 (x4 with strip set)

calf raise
