I'm really enjoying 5/3/1 so far, working out all the percentages and stuff was all part of the fun :p I've got a few pages written down with what I'll be doing for the next couple of months :) oh and my cold is already disappearing, however I've decided to skip my lectures today and stay in bed to make sure :)

I can send you the calculations that you'll need to make yash :) I'm sure MF wouldn't mind sending you the ebook, it's great! :)

Right so my last heavy week is now over for my first cycle of 5/3/1, here's a little recap

My actual One rep maxs are as follows
Bench 77.5Kg, Deadlift 120Kg, Shoulder press 50Kg, squat 115Kg

Here's 90% (my training maxes from this cycle)
Bench 70Kg, Deadlift 108Kg, Shoulder press 45Kg, Squat 100Kg

and finally some of my best lifts from this cycle
bench 67.5Kg x 6, Deadlift 105Kg x 4, shoulder press 42.5Kg x 8, squat 85Kg x 5
some of these were achieved despite a cold so I'm pleased with it, going to upload a photo later too!

Thanks mate, they haven't budged in a while but I'll be testing maxes in 5 weeks time so I'm hoping to put some big numbers on the board :)
I would say stick with stronglifts until you can't progress anymore, the progression is much faster than 5/3/1 much much faster haha.

Oh bummer, at least you have a cool job and one that you get a lot of satisfaction from.

Dunno what I'm going to do, Saturday morning now and it looks like it's going to be a nice hot day. One kid up and the other is still in bed, might head out to a beach or something then gym later this arvo.

Have fun dude! Its killing me that I'll have to wait more than a week to lift anything vaguely heavy :p
Weird question and it may be a stupid one.. I'm assuming arvo means afternoon ahha so is that a kiwi thing? Or am I just very naïve haha. We have words on the isle of wight that the rest of the uk don't use lol

Haha, that's funny. I've been asked that before, I assume everyone knows what it is lol. I guess these would be some of our common, everyday speech...

Arvo - afternoon
Fush & chups - fish & chips
Sweet as/choice/mint/good as gold - that's cool
Wop Wops - middle of nowhere
Jandals - flip flops
Pants - trousers
Chur bro - thanks
She'll be right - it'll be okay
