Maybe a grandiose name for what I will be documenting here, I am essentially still trying to work out (ha ha) what I enjoy doing and sticking to it.

Warm up:
pushups- 20x4

DB shoulder press

20kg x 10x 2
30kgx 8x 3
35kg x 10
40kgx 8x 2
40kgx 7
25kgx 20

Lateral raise/ front raise SS
10x10 each

rear delt raise
15kg 10x10

90kgx 10x5

pushups: 20
wide pushup- 20
knuckle push-20
diamond pushup-20
crunch 20

I really enjoyed this session, shoulders are my favourite body part to work on. I especially love the pump I get on my traps(?) it feels like good, healthy, hard-work.

Thanks man, it means a lot that someone else is taking an interest in what I do.

Does it make sense to write the weight of individual DBs or does it work better to do total weight? I wasn't sure which way to go with that.

Well I write it as weight per dumbbell but it wont matter too much as long as you specify :)
If you don't mind me asking, where abouts are you from?

OK, I write my weights as per dumbbell just to be clear. I am in South-West England, so I guess not that far from you.

Fancied some cardio this morning

Rowing machine:
slow start to get the heart going for maybe 5 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of super intense trying to break the machine on the toughest setting. Then about an hour and a half at a good regular pace. Might do chest later after I obliterate my food supplies.

I LOVE training back! But something is holding me back right now, maybe it got wasted during my leg workout.

warmup- pullups 12x2

deadlift- 80- 160-180-190-200

200x1x 10

weighted chins- +40kg fail
+30 x1x2

Oh hamburgers!

DB row 40kg 15x4
DB row 40kg x10 30kgx10 20kgx8 (superset?) Is it a superset if it is the same exercise but a lighter weight? I just keep a line of DBs and grab a lighter one when I can't do another.

concentration curl- 10kg-20x4

save it for another day....

My shoulder just wasn't moving right, I had clicking and grinding and pain when I tried to bench. I did not warm up my rear delts before playing, my rotators probably need some strengthening too so that's probably why. It just wasn't working. I did some light bench work in the hope I could consider it a warm-up and kill some flys, but my bicep started giving me trouble with those. Lots of little things!

Nice you started a journal, and it looks like you do some serious workouts too.
