Sorry for the lack of updates, having some laptop issues that makes it all a bit tricky. Weight gain appears to have stalled a little bit (despite upping calories to 5000 on workout days!) and in fact if anything I feel like I've los a bit of fat... All of my major lifts have had good gains of late although a tricep tendonitis means I'm having to lay off the pressing and tricep exercises. I'm also going back to a 3 day split (working chest and shoulders on the same day - doing isolation exercises to try and rest the tricep as much as possible). PBs for lifts are now Squats 135kg x 1, 115kg x 8, Deadlift 140kg x 8, OHP 45kg x 8, Decline bench 70kg x 8.

Todays workout:

Barbell Squat
12 x 20kg
1 x 60kg
1 x 70kg
1 x 80kg
1 x 100kg
8 x 110kg
8 x 110kg
8 x 110kg

Leg Press
20 x 85kg

Calf Raise (on parallel leg press)
20 x 40kg
15 x 40kg
20 x 40kg
20 x 40kg
20 x 40kg

Leg Curl
12 x 55kg
12 x 55kg
12 x 55kg

Leg Extension
12 x 60kg
12 x 60kg
10 x 60kg

Oops been a bit slack with the logging again so this will be a long one! Took a few days off and was back in on Monday to do legs. Didn't squat as my triceps were feeling a little sore. Wednesdays chest/shoulders had no pressing movements and feel much better for it and the pain in the triceps have gone. Will repeat this week again and then try adding in something for triceps but keep it light.

Also have a picture update...

Woo! Pressing without pain!

Tried to keep the weight down on the pressing, probably could have done with dropping a bit more weight off the bench but no pain (just pump!). Was surprised how hard the OHP. Was good to drop some weight off, made me think more about squeezing the muscle, especially with the pushdowns.


Barbell decline bench press (super slow negative, pause on chest):
20 x 20kg
10 x 30kg
5 x 40kg
9 x 50kg
10 x 50kg

Dumbbell standing overhead press:
12 x 12kg
11 x 12kg
8 x 12kg

Side/front/rear raise superset:
12 x 5kg
12 x 5kg
12 x 5kg

Dumbbell pullover:
12 x 12.5kg
12 x 12.5kg
12 x 12.5kg

Tricep pushdown (v-bar):
10 x 12kg
12 x 21kg
12 x 21kg
12 x 21kg

Machine Fly:
15 x 15kg

How many days is your split? I found going to 3 days a week a huge help in gaining mass. If you're doing supersets & the like I'd say to drop them. Shoulders I'd say a barbell OHP with db pressing for 4x12 reps or side & rear raises are enough. Especially if you're benching & hitting plenty of pull ups & dip. Actually give your shoulders chance to recover.
