Tue 29th July: I donated blood, no workout.

Wed 30th July

- Bench press, barbell: warmup 8 @ 50kg, then I went for 1 rep max -> 1 @ 82kg, 1 @ 90kg (VERY easy!!!), 1 @ 96kg (212lbs) -> was going really good, already more than 50 % up then my right leg jammed and I failed. However, it was very very close and I know I'll lift it soon. :boxer: After that I did 1 @ 84kg and noticed that my right tricep doesn't want to do anything else today. It hurts a bit so I'll give it a rest.
- Deep squats, barbell: 8 @ 50kg, 2 x 12 @ 60kg. My back is still a bit sore from monday so I didn't want to do much else.
- Bicep curls, curl bar: 15 + 12 + 12 @ 28kg
- Ab moves in which I raise my legs and then lift myself on my upper back/neck: 3 x 15 @ bw

Nothing else. I don't want to hurt my tricep.

Great workout! Have you tried standing overhead barbell press on your shoulder days? I got great upper body bulking results with that one . . . anyway keep up the good work!

Thanks mate! Your new avatar kicks ass!

I've done standing overhead barbell press earlier but for some reason I haven't done them for a while. On monday I took dumbbell presses but they're a bit hard. I'll try some with barbell in next workout. My tricep doesn't feel like it's torn or something, it just might be a bit after the blood donation since my other arm is totally fine and I didn't do anything to hurt it. It felt a bit sore even before my failed pb try.

I'm going, I'm going! :boxer:

Morning weight today 79.1kg which is 174lbs. Evening weight max so far 81.1kg = 179lbs. It's going up again and I'm VERY happy because of it!

Fri 1st August

- Bench press, barbell: warmup @ 20kg and 50kg, then 5 + 6 + 4 @ 84kg -> I think 6 reps at 84kg (185lbs) is another pb for me. :twisted:
- Shoulder press, barbell: 3 + 2 @ 52kg (heavy shit :shock:), 6 + 5 @ 46kg(lightweight, baby :twisted:) -> I belive Hilary, better move than I remembered!
- Bicep curls, barbell: 5 + 6 + 6 @ 46kg
- Bent-over row, barbell: 6 + 5 + 5 + 4 @ 84kg
- Dips: 9 + 12 + 8 @ bw

Strong benching, Tuc.

The best supplement for someone who is not eating enough and is therefore not recovering is more food.

Tue 5th August

I didn't take deadlifts yesterday so I decided to take some today:

Warmup @ 50 and 92kg, then 2 @ 110kg, 7 @ 130kg (287lbs), 4 @ 130kg (lacking grip in right hand :x ), 6 @ 110kg. Hum, I kinda lost my stength there. :?

Nothing else today. I haven't recovered from yesterday and I want to punish myself tomorrow.
