i use the machine mate, i know its better to free squat but when i was 18 i had a hernia and i really dont wanna go through that again, so i try to use the machines in order to lessen the risk of it.

but today went well

90 KG 198 pounds close grip bent over rows 10 reps 3 sets
all cable weights went up by 2 4 sets of 10
150 KG 330 pounds deadlift 1 set 15 reps (need to up this its gedtting easy)
60 KG 132 pounds close grip curls 2 sets 10 reps
22 KG 48 pounds dumbell curl 2 sets 10 reps
50 KG 110 poundscable curls 1 set 17 reps

seem to be putting on more and more on the bar which is always a good sign dont seem to be gaining much mass though

MISSED OUT LEGDS THIS WEEK! trying to get back on it later on in the week as i had to do a long shift at work cuz some of the other people didn't turn up for their shift and we had some breakdowns which sucked! but hey more money for tofu.

but shoulders went a bit odd today

90 KG 198 pounds overhead press 3 sets of 10
34 KG 74 pounds a hand dumbell press 2 sets of 10 <struggled with these this week odd
22 KG 48 pounds a hand side raises 2 sets of 10 < easy should of upped it really
20 LG 44 pounds a hand back raises 2 sets of 10
then amazingly 120 kilo in total shoulder shrugs 4 sets of ten quite comfortable

been eating slightly more this week, especially quinoa and flaxseed, and more seeds can feel much more energy and a think with the big lifts it shows

so back went a lil badly this week

did the same on all the block movements but thought screw it go heavier on deadlift and do less reps.
got 180KG 396pounds up for five for one set but failed on the other three, sucked but considering its my first time going heavy in about two years im hoping for a much better result next week

well did shoulders today and it went crap

90 KG 198 pounds military press 3 sets of 8!!! went for ten but my mate was helping me too much on the last few so im not counting them
36 KG 79 pounds a hand dumbell press 2 sets of 10 down from last week thought it would be a good idea because of the military press and this was hard
20 KG 44 pounds a hand back raises 2 sets of 10
120 KG 264 pounds in total shoulder shrugs 4 sets of ten easy, but still harder than last week

no idea why lifts have gone down this week, i know i did a heavy bench set yesterday but still thought this would affect me as much with these lifts today

training has been more on the lighter and rep side this week, basically all the same but doing 15 reps on a lighter weight, this is because i havent had a spotter at the gym as he is on holiday and i am not risking that kind of weight coming down on my neck, but i have got some pictures to put up.....
