I finally got my new computer, my new apartment and my new gym membership (24/7 :) ) so I guess it's time to do a log.
Lately I've been slacking a lot, I found it hard to get motivated and my food habits has become a joke. But now it's time to flip the tables or something.

All the weights I write in this log are in kilograms

Sunday 30/9 Biceps, light back, light calves and rear delts

Barbell row, sup grip
60x9
60x9
60x9

Standing bent-over rear delt raises
13x8
13x8
13x8

Seated calf raises
60x10
60x10
60x11

Cable pull down, sup grip
70x8
85x5
85x4

Alternating dumbell curls
19x8
19x8
19x8

Some cable cross excersise for rear delts
15x8
15x8
15x7

Usually I aim to do 4-6 reps but I'm just trying to start slow, I also do everything really strict.
Please comment and give me tips and help me with motivation.

Regardless of your goals(strength or size) I think you really need more sets that that. Three sets is fine per series but not per body part.

I know what you mean. The thing is my split is pretty unusual, I train every muscle on my body twice a week. Once "light" (few excersises) and once "hard" (more excersises).
The split looks like this:

Day 1: Hard triceps, front n' mid delts, light chest and legs
Day 2: Hard biceps, rear delts, light calves, back
Rest
Day 3: Hard chest, legs, light triceps, front n' mid delts7
Day 4: Hard back, calves, light biceps, rear delts
Rest
Start over

Abs I do when I feel like it and sometimes I just do legs once a week on a separate day. If you should count the number of sets totally for every muscle group per week I would probably have a higher number than most people.

Thursday 5/10 Legs and abs

The only squatrack was occupied so I used the smith for the first time, acctually felt really good. I haven't done any leg work in a while so I took it easy.

Smith squats
70x10
80x4
70x9

Leg raises

Tried the leg press for the first time at the new gym, it was kind of weird, you kind of add weight to your own bodyweight.

Leg press
bw+100x8
bw+100x8

Crunches

the session was okay I guess. but the training wasn't planned so didn't really have any expectations.

I used to only use the rack but now only use the smith. I have to be very careful about form, but I take my squats to total failure (can't get back up), so I feel better being able to flip the bar where I am stuck rather than drop down to the safety (altough I still set the safety). I prefer it over a spotter ..... I hate to be touched :lol:
