Friday-10th-Feb Cycle 2 week 1 (3x5)

Usual warm up, brisk walk & intermittent sprints on treadmill followed by foam rolls & stretches with 3x5 lighter weight on squats.

Squats: 85kg 97.5kg 112.5kg
Good mornings (programmed assistance 3x10) 37.5kg 45kg 52.5kg
GHR: 5x10 

Ab circuit: hanging leg raise 10 reps, side bends 20kg plate 20 bends a side, straight leg ups 15 reps & cable crunch 95plate for 10 reps.

Squat felt heavy today (wtf). Usually wear shorts on lower body days but forgot them & felt restricted in joggers. Maybe that's why it felt off  but I pulled through. Hit required reps only, no point carrying on when your getting annoyed.

I still absolutely stink at hanging leg raises......

A 20kg gain over 5 or 6 months is huge mate !!

Oh, and I like that little 'IIFYM' banner. Cool, might have to steal that one haha.

It's more like 8 months but I usually get the same reaction...I talk to folks who say it's taken them a year to gain just 10kg. I don't know why? When I hear "I'm a hard gainer" I just say "no you don't eat enough" haha

I didn't follow any diets...Just did the simple things. 2g protein per body pound & loads of clean carbs. Olive oil in shakes ect I avoid soya

I don't see a lot of sense in following a diet if your goal is to gain weight, just a rough tracking of macros (if you wanted to) and keeping the bodyfat relatively in check.

I'll be sure to keep an eye on what's happening here, hope you have a good weekend bro. Funny to find out you lived pretty much down the road from me when I was in the UK haha, small world aye.

24hrs of work the wkend kind sir but it leads into 3 & a half days off & some lifting/xboxing.

You must recall crumpets then? I absolutely swear by these as an energy source...I'd eat 4 before running & they use to work wonders for me. I still use them now with peanut/almond butter.

I've never been a "loads of oats" person to perform

Haha, yeah we have crumpets over here. Great with Nutella somethered all over them!

Like your updated signature btw, couldn't agree more. I look at some of the numbers these big guys push in the gym and it's laughable. Especially if it's a big guy that's on the sauce, shameful.

Ye someone tried telling me they were quad dominant! My reply "unless your quads look like the hulks & the rest of your legs are like johnny Bravos mate you ain't quad dominant".

People hear something once & talk them selves into believing it haha

So fucking true. Been following the log again - just haven't had the chance to respond until now. You're definitely right about the progress of cycles - the first couple look like a cakewalk but, once you look further down the road, it gets a little hairy.

Have you ever seen/read dinosaur training?

When I scanned over mine my eyes became wider the further I looked on haha

I believe Wendler says you get 7-8 cycles usually before you re do the lifts because of stalling. If you stall on a lift you re calculate that lift & continue with the others if still gaining. If its a general grinding hault you re do the lot :)

Mon-13th-Feb Cycle 2 week 2 (3x3)

Up at 5:00, have a delivery coming today so up early for breakfast & workout.

Usual warm up then onto military pressing.

Military press: 35kg 40kg 45kg+6

Assistance:
close grip bench (programmed assistance 2x8 1x6 as outlined in program) 47.5kg 55kg 65kg
Chin ups (various grips) 5x10
Tricep push downs, Bicep curls, Narrow grip cable row (all 3x10 light)

Nothing major again & smashed though this. Looking forward to cycle 3 now so I can start gaining on my lifts. Pressing was easy, hit 6 reps with holding a few back on final set. Everything else straight forward, Assistance work kept light....

haha They have 50% off a lot of the bundles right now with free delivery...

Not used them before though known about them. I just sat comparing prices to what I usually buy & really surprised at the price of the range! 5kg of quality whey for £40! Granted unflavoured but still. Pal of mine writes for the site in his spare time & has said he thinks they are a good company.
