It's been one of those weeks again. Exams have been taking almost all of my time and this week i had to write a 40 page assay on ethics, so basically I've just been sitting on my couch reading and writing days on end.

So, what am I going to do now you ask? fucking sleep, that's what!! I'm so mentally exhausted that I can hardly focus on updating my log :wink: Nighty night!

Monday (A) - 08/07-09

I took a maintenance day today. Lack of sleep for the last couple of days has made me quite sluggish. Will add weight next time.

Squat
Warm up sets: 5x20kg - 5x40kg - 5x60kg - 5x80kg - 3x90kg - 2x105kg
3x5 110kg

Bench press
Warm up sets: 5x20kg - 5x30kg - 5x40kg - 3x50kg - 2x65kg

1x5 140kg (While deadlifting I started feeling really good, so despite having a maintenance day I though, why the hell not add some more weight? Threw on another 10kg and they just went up nice and smooth, which felt nice, haha)

Pull-ups
10x3

The mystery of the missing squat rack have been solved. Apparently someone fell and busted his ass using the rack and our gym manager deemed it to dangerous for our gym, so the genius sold it :shock:

I'm speechles.. Who the hell sells a rack just because some meathead can't handle his weights!?! Christ! So now I'm on the lookout for a new place to work out..

I'd love to have my own rack and equipment, but I just don't have the space to fit it anywhere in my apartment :?

Ah that blows, i'm lucky, got the biggest room in the house.

That's some serious weight/reps on the Squats you had going. I'm looking forward to squatting my own bodyweight for 5x5 that's my first mini-goal. Hope you find somewhere soon so you can keep building on them!

Shit, starting from a dead stop. Hardcore :D Before I got my rack, I had the bar sitting on top of 2 chairs....I couldn't budge it. Had to clean/press it to get it on my shoulders (which was harder than the actual squats :lol: )

So, I've been taking some time off from my old gym.. The manager there just kept pissing me off and nagging me about how squatting free weights wasn't allowed, so for the sake of not arguing or punching the guy I joined a new gym.

The new gym is pretty cool. It's got everything i need. Also, i met another vegan guy there, which is pretty rare here in Denmark, haha. So right now I'm really motivated and ready to hit the weights hard!

I decided to stay at my current weights for my first workout at the new gym. Had to get a feel of the place and get comfortable with the new equipment.

Monday (B) 29/6-09

Squat
Warm up sets: 5x20kg - 5x40kg - 5x60kg - 5x80kg - 3x90kg - 2x100kg
3x5 113kg

OH press
Warm up sets: 5x20kg - 5x30kg - 5x40kg - 3x50kg
3x5 63kg OHPs were really hard today. Gonna stay at this weight till they go up more smoothly

Power cleans
3x5 70kg The new place has bumper plates, so i got to throw the bar to the ground instead of catching it on my thighs, which was quite pleasing

Chin-ups
3x6

Weighted Sit-ups
3x10 (25kg)
