Friday 7/12/12

Deadlifts, thought I would go light/medium and work on reps
50 Kg (110 lbs) x 8
70 Kg (154 lbs) x 6
80 Kg (176 lbs) x 5
100 Kg (220 lbs) x 3 done as single reps, I even let go of the bar for a second
100 Kg (220 lbs) x 1 was supposed to pull another 2 but single reps is difficult!
50 Kg x (110 lbs) 12 super easy, I may use 60 Kg as last set high reps from now on.

All this talk of shoulder pressing has gotten me to dedicate more time to doing them, especially if it'll help in my benching too.
OverHeadPress
25 Kg (55 lbs) x 10
30 Kg (66 lbs) x 10
40 Kg (88 lbs) x 7 was going for 8 :/
40 Kg (88 lbs) x 4
25 Kg (55 lbs) x 10 (to failure)

shrugs (weight per dumbbell)
20 Kg (44 lbs) x 12
25 Kg (55 lbs) x 12
30 Kg (66 lbs) x 12
35 Kg (77 lbs) x 12
could do so much heavier if it wasn't for my grip.

3 light/medium sets for high reps on seated rows (machine)

from now on I'll convert my lifts into lbs as most on this site use lbs

There is a big enough minority here using KGs to not give a shit about converting it. If you feel like being nice just finish your posts with this link: http://www.onlineconversions.com/weight.php

+1

Don't bother converting the units. The only reason most of us use lbs is because that's what's stamped on the plates. I would rather use kg myself but I don't want to deal with converting the units every time I lift. 1 kg = 2.2 lbs, roughly, and those who care can do the math for themselves.

I didn't do it to "cater" for people that couldn't be bothered, I just thought it would make my log more readable for people in the states, all I have to do is times my lifts by 2.2 so it isn't any hassle for me at all :)
plus lbs sound heavier haha :p
