Fir-23rd-June cycle 6 week 3 (5/3/1)

Main lift:
squats: (warm up sets 5x5kg5 70kg x5 82.5kg x5) 105kg x5 117.5kg x3 132.5kg x1+2g

Assistance:
Squats: Boring but big 97.5kg x10 82kg 2x10 70kg 2x10
Standing hamstring curls: 4x12
Hypers: 4x15

Abs: Hanging knee raises 3x10

Summary
SO in all I'm aching all over...I'm glad I have opted to reprogram everything now instead of in a cycle or two. I'm just starting to notice one to many niggles & I'm taking a wee bit longer to recover. Never been one to ache for days so this is noticeable.

Left squats at just two reps, I had no plan today & was wise to leave more in the tank.

Side bends with 20kg plate... nice one.

Might use that on my next session, that would fire the obliques nicely.

Mon-25th-June cycle 6 week 4 (deload)

Not logging anything for this, work was super light & I paired up upper/lower lifts as its deload week.

Going to be reviewing my program as I'm reprogramming for a new start. So will be starting with cycle one, new 1rm on the lifts.  I ve made some good gains so will be taking my best lifts from previous cycles & basing off those.

Contemplating going to a three day split, primarily because I can't deadlift programmed so may just use  them as a pre squat warm up. Also thus allows me to start some running on off days.

Today's work:

OHP 
3x10 pull ups
Close grip bench (for programming in new cycle so tested this) 
Mts rows
Cable tricep/bicep work

Deadlift
Front squats 
Standing hamstring curls

Ab work...

Summary:
Looks a lot but it was all easy/light weight...

Hey mate, have you any idea what happened to vegansludge?

It's like she just disappeared from the forum, she used to be really regular with her journal and that's why I am wondering. Chur MF.

Join the club!

Precisely why I train late at night by myself. When I'm in a rut and need to be pushed harder than ever, I do well with other people (but, only people that are motivating, i.e. those who are stronger than myself). But, 99% of the time, I'd rather have the gym to myself, turn up the music, and take care of things without seeing another human being for the 90 minutes I'm there.

Training with people is quite frankly overrated IMHO.

Can't agree more VE, when I was flat out training Keysi 3 times a week I'd usually partner up with two guys who'd been studying the art for years...to achieve the black you have to train in front of the founding members so high standards. I found doing this I couldn't actually train with people even a couple of years in front of me, I quickly progressed through the ranks but lifting last year became more enjoyable. Also it was be a middle distance runner/more of a fighter/become bigger & stronger so I opted for lifting:) I do still throw down in my pals "fight club" basement now & then...how the tables have turned lol

As for lifting solo, I find I can get into my zone & stay there...if someone's trying to chat to me about the footie ect I just tend to drop off. Also my view has & will always be that I hate everyone & everything, my mind has to be turned otherwise lol I find you feel less obligated this way.


I'm thirty one now & fairly happy with who I'am, being thirty+ means you get to complain a lot I've found....I like it
