It sucks hey! I guess I can sort of relate to that too, as I cramp in the feet during hack squats.

Yesterday (Biceps):


Alternating Bicep Curls: 12.0'sx 12, 12.0'sx10, 12.0'sx8, 12.0'sx6 (Each arm)

Alternating Hammer Curls: 12.0'sx 12, 12.0'sx10, 12.0'sx9, 18.0'sx4 (Each arm)

DB Cheat Curls: 18.0'sx8, 18.0'sx5, 18.0'sx4 (Each Arm)


Today (Chest):


A nice short workout as I got home from school late. (First day back; Term 4. the final term of year 12, yay!)

Since it was a shorter workout I upped the intensity by having 30 second breaks between each set and each new exercise.


BB Bench press: 50.0x12, 50.0x10, 70.0x2, 60.0x8, 60.0x6, 50.0x10

DB Bench Press: 18.0’sx12, 18.0’sx10, 18.0’sx8

DB (Incline) Bench Press: 18.0’sx12, 18.0’sx10, 18.0’sx8, 18.0’sx6

DB Fly’s: 12.0’sx12

DB Incline Fly’s: 12.0’sx14, 12.0’sx6

My chest was so sore and pumped after that, so i had a big bowl of assorted grains and seeds for dinner; (Royal Quinoa, Green Lentils, Pearled Barley and brown rice mixed with a tablespoon of chilli, some paprika, Cayenne Pepper all in a diced tomato sauce with a side of broccoli and green beans).

I think i will have a PB sandwich before bed in about an hour and a half as it is 8:19pm over here and i have school tomorrow.

I think rest is an individual thing but the heavier you go the longer you need to rest. I rest for 2-3 minutes. But if you are trying to work in cardio into your lifting you should rest less. if you want to get huge rest longer and go heavier. i definitely can lift much heavier if i rest longer.

Training has been a bit out of whack but that is because I was back at school this week (20 something days til I graduate) and i also started lacrosse again this week. However i am a strong believer that any training is better than none so in saying that my workouts may not be up to scratch in the following few weeks but my main aim is to just get SOME training done.

Today

Legs

Lunges:
18.0’s x 8, 18.0’sx8, 18.0’s x 6

BB Squats: 50.0 x 10, 50.0 x 9, 50.0 x 8

Stiff Legged deadlifts: 50.0 x 12, 70.0 x 10, 70.0 x 12

Calf Raises: 12.0’s x 20, 18.0’s x 14, 18.0’s x 13, 18.0’s x 6

Goblet Squats: 18.0 x 12, 18.0 x 10, 18.0 x 8

Today was an interesting training session, I did goblet squats and lunges for the first time EVER!

Suprisingly the lunges were harder than I had expected. I thought "Meh, lunges will be a breeze; boy was I wrong! I actually found them quite hard evenn though I was using 18kg dumbbells (40lb Dumbbells). I had lowered my reps today because yesterday I had gone for a 20km bike ride and my quads felt sore from that.
