Mad busy lately. Kickin' it when I can which isn't as often as I'd want to... but still making progress!

Sat 23rd May

I helped 3 of my friends move sofas, beds, washing machines ect. which counts as a workout I guess. My dad has a van and I lift weights. Guess who's the man among my friends when they have to move? :lol:

Mon 25th May

Bent-over rows and strict leg deadlifts with light weights and loads of reps (+20) per set. I just wanted to test how it kicks in. Not bad!

Also MAD eating! I ate about 8 plates of food!

Tue 26th May

- Bench press, barbell: warm up @ 50kg, then 8 + 7 @ 82kg (181lbs, I guess this is among my best bench presses ever!) :mrgreen:
- Standing shoulder press, dumbbells: 10 + 9 + 8 @ 20kg per arm
- Dips: 20 + 15 @ bw

Now off to move some more! :D

Quickie!

- Deep squats, barbell: 10 @ 52kg, 10 + 10 @ 78kg
- Bicep curls, curl bar: 3 x 12 @ 34kg (slow reps, seems to give better pump)

God damn, too busy! But at least I've been eating a LOT and it's just as important as training! Reps and increasing all the time, which means I'm getting somewhere!

Tue 2nd June

- Bench press: warm up @ 50kg, then 6 + 6 @ 84kg (185 lbs, quite easy. Next time more!)
- Standing shoulder press, dumbbells: 3 x 10 @ 20kg per arm
- Dips: 15 + 16 @ bw

Thanks Robert! It's sometimes a bit hard to see the progress myself since I see myself from the mirror every now and then and every time I look quite like the last time. But I am very convinced that consistency is the key... I look quite different compared to what I looked a year ago. And I hope I'll look next year different as well.

Well, back to my training! Another few days pause... I had my birthday party and then I had some incredible business things to do which kept me busy but I'll tell more about it later.

Fri 26th June

- Bench press, barbell: 10 @ 50kg, then 4 + 5 + 6 @ 84kg
- Bicep curls, curl bar, 2 x 10 @ 44kg
- Standing shoulder press, dumbbells: a few sets @ 20kg

Sat 27th June

- Deep squat, barbell: 10 @ 52kg, 3 x 10 @ 72kg
- Bent-over rows, curl bar: 3 x 12 @ 82kg

Tomorrow I'm once more off to teach breakdance to a large bunch of kids for a few days.

Sun 5th July

Time to pump those triceps for comp pics!

- Bench press, barbell: 10 @ 50kg, a few reps @ 66kg, 4 + 4 + 2 @ 86kg (190 lbs). Worked out alone so I had to be careful and ended up with low reps. :(
- Standing shoulder press, dumbbells: 3 x 10 @ 20kg per arm
- Dips: 15 + 13
- Also combined sets: hammer curls & standing shoulder press, dumbbells: 3 x 5+5 @ 20kg per arm

Did I get a good pump? Go check in the photo section!

Long time without updates! Back in business!

I forgot to mention that between 30th June and 3th July I had like 5 hours bboying every day. PHEW!

Last week I hardly worked out at all. Just some squats, bicep curls, a few bench press sets and that kind of stuff...

This week I've been doing lots of physical work but no real training. Today, I'm changing my workout routine totally!

See what changed:

Sat 18th July

- Bench press, barbell: 10 @ 22kg, 10 @ 52kg, 10 + 10 + 7 @ 72kg (159 lbs)
- Deep squats, barbell: 10 + 10 + 10 @ 52kg
- Deadlifts, barbell: 10 @ 50kg, 10 + 10 @ 100kg
- Bent-over rows, barbell: 8 + 8 + 8 @ 92kg
- Lateral raises, dumbbells: 8 + 8 + 8 @ 12kg per arm

In case you didn't notice, I did much more something like full body workout than I've done for a LONG time! I realized that if I hit one body part like hell, it takes so long to recover that I can't have the workout pace I want. With this kind of workout I can stimulate whole body 3 times a week and I am quite sure that it's worth it. We'll see!

Next 2 days: NICE PAIN in whole body! Now that's what I'm talking about!

Tue 21st July

- Bench press, dumbbells: 10 + 10 + 10 @ 24kg per arm
- Front squats, barbell: 7 + 7 + 2 @ 52kg (I haven't done these for a long time and the bar keeps slipping off my shoulders in every single set, miserable! :evil: )
- Straight leg deadlift, barbell: 10 + 10 @ 92kg
- Bicep curls, curl bar: 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 @ 40kg

Oh come on! I USED to update this really often. :wink:

I think I'll do this at least a few weeks and if I keep getting good results, I might stick to this for years. :roll: I heard people getting superb results by deadlifting 3 times a week so I have to try that out, gradually putting more weight all the time.

Fri 25th July

- Bench press, barbell: 10 @ 50kg, 10 + 10 + 10 @ 72kg
- Deep squats, barbell: 10 @ 52kg, 10 + 10 @ 60kg
- Deadlits, barbell: 10 @ 50kg, 10 + 10 @ 92kg
- Bent-over rows, barbell: 10 + 10 + 10 @ 92kg
- Dips: 15 + 15 @ bw

Tue 4th August

I didn't work out for several days, I was in Faces Etnofestival ( http://www.faces.fi/sumuSHOP/splash.php ) representing Vegan Alliance of Finland. Shared loads of flyers and sold lots of vegan stuff. And had jolly good time!

Now back in business baby!

- Bench press, barbell: 9 + 7 + 6 @ 76kg
- Deep squats, barbell: 10 @ 54kg, 10 + 10 @ 70kg
- Deadlifts, barbell: 10 + 8 @ 112kg
- Bent-over rows, barbell: 10 + 10 + 10 @ 100kg

On monday 3rd August I worked hard for 2 hours carrying planks (something like 50lbs per piece and there were dozens of them). Counts as a workout I guess. :roll:

Oh god, what a HUGE gap in reporting!

In August the next 2 weeks went traveling around Europe. Some photos here: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=9 ... d44cb55e7a

And AWESOME vegan food we had during our trip here: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=1 ... ec15e5d435

When we got back I caught cold and was out of business for 2 weeks and on September I had loads and loads of bboying and didn't have that much time to work out, until last weekend when Guillaume aka IYM(!!!) came to see me here! I'll post a photo to prove it soon.

Sun 27th September

- Bench press, barbell: 10 @ 50, 3 @ 82, 6 + 5 @ 74kg
- Shoulder press, dumbbells: 12 + 12 + 9 @ 14kg per arm
- Bent-over row, curl bar: 10 + 10 + 10 @ 76kg
- Hammer curls: 12 + 12 + 12 @ 14kg per arm

Mon 28th September

2h bboying

Wed 30th September

1h 45mins bboying

Thu 1st October

- Deep squat, barbell: 3 x 10 @ 52kg
- Deadlift, barbell: 10 @ 92kg

Sat 3rd October

- Bench press, barbell: 10 @ 52, 5 @ 62, 5 + 6 + 5 @ 72
- Shoulder press, dumbbells: 10 + 10 + 10 @ 16.5kg per arm
- Bicep curls, dumbbells: 10 + 10 + 10 @ 16.5kg per arm
- Deadlift: 5 @ 92kg, 5 @ 110kg

An easy start is required after such a long break! It's amazing how fast you lose your best shape, but I hope I'll be back in heavy weights in no time!

Hmm... what else... I started importing vegan sausages from Germany and already sold almost 1000 of them. Also bought 5.5kg spirulina and sold it too. I think we're talking about business in no time! You should have seen the face of the guy who brought me 50kg (110lbs) delivery and I said it's full of vegan sausages! :D
