your overhead press is really good mate! it's by far my weakest lift but I still really enjoy it :) looking forward to seeing your deadlift video mate! hope everythings cool in delhi :)



Its same for me i find OHP most difficult to do . Yes Deadlift video will be up and coming probably by Thursday next week .
Delhi is okay the weather is cold now but whats not cool is England kicking India a big time in the butt ,in the Test Series . You into cricket ?

Cricket is pretty popular in New Zealand, it's all cricket and rugby over here. Hardly get any soccer coverage at all lol.

Black Caps are our team but they're pretty bad TBH, one of their nicnkames is the Black Craps.

WEEK 7 WORKOUT #19 A

Decline Crunches
3x10

SQUATS
Bar x 10 ,8 x37kg, 5x47 kg , 5 x 50kgs
I did not do my required 5x5 for squats today , i just couldn't feel the strength while i was doing my warmup and just felt the weight would be too heavy and i'l end up wasting myself . So just did few warmup sets too get the blood flow for better recovery . I do not feel any Soreness post workout in my legs considering i am squatting heavier than ever before , is it good or bad ??

BENCH PRESS
Bar x 10 , 8x27kg , 8x37kg
5 x 5 x 50kg

BARBELL ROWS
5 x 5 x 50kg

Dips
Bodyweight 3x5

Push ups 2x10


I felt a little low on energy through out the workout despite having a Peanut Butter JAm sandwich pre workout . I guess maybe training so hard for 7 continuous weeks the first time in my life the body is asking for some rest . My next workout will be on Thursday now that i have to go out of station for 3 days . So i should get a decent break that way .

when your a bit tired having another days rest is a good thing people worry that they are going to lose strength or size from doing things like that, but if its makes you have a better workout a few days later rather than a useless one on schedule then its all good! rest is very important especially when your doing maximum weights.

Hello everyone just came in last night, so workout will be tomorrow . Feeling a little strange not working out for a week now and i will only be able to do one workout this week that will be tomorrow , and that's a big workout as i will be aiming for new PB in Squats , Deads and OHP . Only thing after missing one full week i am still not sure if i should carry on the increment from where i left or just do one workout to get back into the feel .
Is one week a break long enough for a lower weightlifting workout session ?

Anyhow i plan to eat like crazy today and hope to rack up all the weight tomorrow .
How's it going with you all ?

Welcome back capfit! how was your time away?? Personally I would just continue from where you left off, one week wont have done any harm in fact you'll be all rested up and ready to go so nail it mate :)
from December 21st-January 7th I wont be able to use my gym which is a two week break, but I feel like I need it anyway, gonna train extra days and go a bit heavy to make up for it!
are you filming your session tonight??

WEEK 8 WORKOUT #20 B

SQUATS
Bar x 10
8 x 27kg
5x47 kg
5x5x72kg

3 times during my set for Squats i thought this is it i am not doing anymore but somehow just pushed myself and finished my 5x5 .

Overhead Press
Bar x 10
1x5x22 kgs
1x5x27kgs
5x5 x 37 kg

Deadlift
1x5x57 kgs
1x5x77 kgs
1x5x87 kgs

This felt great , lifting 7kgs more than my bodyweight definitely feels good , i did get a video too for today but have to pack for tomorrow's flight so no time to upload .

Overall Really heavy workout today so i wonder if 3 days of squats a week is getting too much now with the increasing weight . I am leaving again to Bangalore for 4 days so next workout will be after 4-5 days only , but maybe i will use the hotel gym for some light workouts .

Nice work on the deads, they're coming up nicely. Just see how you go with the squatting, 3 days a week might take your body a little time to adjust to squatting with that much frequency.

Where are you off to now, business or pleasure?
