friday, back! weighed in at 84.9 kilos today havent weight myself for a while


after MF and rossco talking bout deadlifts, i decided to start doing them again tonight, i wanted to stay light and work on technique but couldnt resist going a bit heavier.

1 set 20kg 30reps
1 set 60kg 10 reps
1 set 80kg 10 reps
1 set 100kg 10 reps (failure)
1 set 40kg 20 reps

5 mins stretching

30mins fast spinning bike

was made up to deadlift 100kg again its hard to lower the weight tho because im upstairs on a wooden floor so i have to slow right down for the last inch or so of the rep so it doesnt damage to floor :lol: ill probably keep the weight down next week and go for 20 with 80kg, and 15 with 90kg

food today

6 slicesbrown bread toast with jam
2 cups brown rice
1tin butter beans
1tin black eyed beans
6 baked potatoes
1 pineapple
small dry salad

wahey! good to see you deadlifting! high rep deads feel great don't they :p?
get yourself a couple of spongey mats? I have some that were intended for taking camping but they've become a little platform for the weights in my room haha, where did you get your weights from dude? I got mine from argos (lol) agessss ago but only have up to 35Kg at home.
also noticed loads of beans in your food for today ;) I just got a tin of the new heinz 5 bean its so good!

holy shit that sounds amazing!! Currently saving for a deposit as I'm getting a decent place with the mrs next summer so can't invest in something that cool just yet but I'll need a set up like that! it'll save me a lot of money in the long run paying for gym memberships and petrol money getting there :p
yeah they're standard heinz baked beans but consist of 5 different types of bean :o

theres a pic of it a few pages back somewhere. i think it was 500quid for the rack bench and all the weights but its a proper heavy duty 3inch box section one, i got in on good old 0% finance about 5 years ago. fitness-superstore.co.uk brilliant place. its definately works out cheaper, plus you can have the music as loud as you want, and shout YEAH BUDDY whenever you like too :lol:

first stop tomoro is tesco for some heinz dream beanz!

I love how simple your food is! proper to the point meals ;) I very often do that!
cool idea with the homemade forearm roller! i've been meaning to use my grip trainer recently but haven't got round to it, it's so tedius!

Which Mike Mentzer book? I've had great success from his stuff, I highly rate it. I have most of his books and a few of his videos and seminars where he is speaking.

Food looks delicious !!

yeh my food is simple, i cant be bothered cooking fancy stuff lol just big portions and im happy. my forearms feel fine today! was hoping for some soreness, do some more tonight with more weight. ive woken up with a sore back for some reason today :( hopefully it will ease off in a bit.

ive got a mike mentzer dvd, and 'the wisdom of mike mentzer' also 'high intensity training the mike mentzer way'. like how he recommends a diet of 60%+ carbs dont hear bodybuilders saying that these days.

MM was ahead of his time, a shame more people didn't take much notice of his methodology.

Shame how his final years ended up, what a waste.
