Back pumps to the max! I think I may have to ditch the separate hamstring workout and just tack some leg curls onto the end of quad day - the back pumps I'm getting off SLDL's is insane :(. Other than the agony today was a really good workout. Decided as I had some extra time and I missed out on biceps the other day that I would do a few sets at the end. Doing the drop sets for my last set makes me feel so good, gotta love that pump eh Arnie? I felt like Greg Plitt during one of his workouts (minus the pep talks and other weird sh*t). It feels good to feel good :). I keep forgetting to do the close grip bench correctly though, always flaring my elbows out, one day I will remember hopefully!

Overslept this morning so was at the gym a bit later than usual for a Saturday. Really glad I went in though as I had a really great workout with more PB's!

Decided to make the jump up to 40kg for OHP which is a greater jump than I'd like but I keep forgetting to take my micro plates to the gym. Didn't really feel like I got the best forearm workout and I think I may drop that out (along with moving the hamstring exercises to leg day).

Leg day = pain and suffering.

This morning was a bit of a struggle to get up, I think my 2 weeks of getting up slightly later has wrecked my pattern for early mornings again. Some more back pumps again but I have bought some taurine so hopefully that will help. Diet has been great, eating (with ease) everything I have planned and in fact I have increased my non training days calories to be the same as workout day. I'm going to add in some cardio to help keep me trim (ish) while the weight goes up. Good workout overall with weights/reps all going up. I seemed to get through the workout pretty quickly so probably should have thrown some dips in too. Loving the extra sets and massive pump at the end of each bodypart too :)

If pump was a gauge of how well you'd worked a muscle - my shoulders will be huge tomorrow! Had planned to do close grip bench after my shoulder exercises but the pump was too painful, I think mixing up the exercises/muscles might make more sense (at least where shoulders are concerned).

Hell yeah squat PB! Not bad for 6:45am :)

Great session, squats felt easy at 95kg so I figured I'd see what I could get for 100kg all 8 reps were good quality deep squats too. 20 reppers on the leg press gave the usual feeling of wanting to be sick...

More PB's thank you very much! Pretty good as I considered staying in bed this morning, thank god for a cat waking me up again! A spotter definitely makes the difference when going for increased weight each week. No incline dumbbells as there were no benches available so went for dips instead. Had a little time to kill at the end so tried machine fly for the first time in years, these will probably become a regular part of my chest workout.
