MONDAY, 8 Nov

I finally bench pressed 70 kg! OK, maybe it's not too much, but for me that was a little personal goal, or step-stone to one-day-to-be-achieved 100 kg!
70 kg (154 pounds) was also my bodyweight until recently, but I gained weigt in last couple months, so now I have 75 kg! Yes! I guess 75 kg bench press is my next goal!
PS: started doing chest cable flyes, never tried them before. Felt OK.

BENCH PRESS: 10x40kg/ 8 x 50 kg/ 5x60kg/ 5x65kg/ 2 x 5 x 70 kg
CHEST CABLE FLYES: 3 x 8 x 25 kg
INCLINE BENCH PRESS:8x45 kg / 5x55 kg / 3x5x60 kg
INCLINE DUMBBELL FLY: 5 x 5 x 11 kg done with almost no rest between sets

LYING TRICEPS EXTENSION: 3x8x15kg
TRICEPS EXTENSION: 3 x 8 x 45 kg

You could easily hit 75kg for a few reps if you wanted, bodyweight bench is already in the bag.

Nice work!

Thanks, Chewy! But even two sets on 70 kg were only possible because I had a gym trainer as a spotter behind me. He didn't help me in lifting itself, but psychologically it was nice to know that there was somebody to catch that bar if it smacked my face :D :D :D

BENCH PRESS: 10x40kg/ 8 x 50 kg/ 5x60kg/ 5x65kg/ 2 x 5 x 70 kg
CHEST CABLE FLYES: 3 x 8 x 25 kg
INCLINE BENCH PRESS: 5x55 kg /
and then I decided to try drop sets: 5 x 55 kg/ 14 x 45 kg / 10 x 35 kg
This killed me so I did triceps, also in drop sets mode starting from 45 to 25 kg
I felt like on drugs, so I grabbed 10 kg dumbbell and did 3 sets of concentration biceps curls.

I FEEL GREAT!

What's the use of lifting weights if you can't get high on it?:)))))

yesterday I felt liek shit all day, don't know why, I have sometimes depression days... Went to bed early, wanted to be fresh for todays workout. But workout today was catastrophe. During my last two sets of dead-lifts, I felt dizzy, I was loosing sight, and felt weak... My heart also bumped like crazy. Maybe I am forcing myself to make big achievements in short time. I have to take it easy, really, or this is going to kill me. I mean, you can't do no sports at all for your whole lifetime, and then expect to become Schwarzenegger just in one year. And when you're 37 years old.

So, I decided to quit todays session. They even gave me "first aid" at the desk (some glucose powder in water). Went home. Spent the rest of day relaxing and eating. I hope this is not going to happen again...

PULL UPS: 8, 5, 4, 5, 4, 4
DEAD-LIFTS: 6 x55 kg/ 5 x 65 kg/ 3 x 5 x 75
SEATED CABLE ROWS: 8 X 55 and then decided to quit...

I decided not to keep my log so detailed, I got tired of writing down the data twice (in my notebook and in this log). So from now on, I will just make notes here when I make some progress in basic exercises. The good news is that I made two "personal records" during my last two workouts:

Saturday, Nov 20:
INCLINE BENC PRESS: reached 70 kg, 2 sets of 5 reps

Monday, Nov 22:
DEAD-LIFTS: 80 kg, 3 stes of 5 reps

To make progress is the only way. I wonder what this log will look like in 3 years or so:))))

Good job on the bench press! 70 kg is impressive. I think patience is the key to succeed in this game. Squats and deadlift are hard lifts, but they are worth it. Keep up the good work!

How is training coming along?

I left this low rep routine, and decreased weights due to some arrhythmia heart problems i have and that are getting worse when I push myself to lift such big weights (for me).
Last month or two I am doing 4 sets of 12 or 10 repetition per exercise. And I also improve with this system, and my heart is not so stressed. I actually now lift 10 times 60 kg, which is, I think, better then to lift 70 kg for 5 times. Or at least it is the same, only my heart says: thank you for not torturing me! :lol:
