Hello guys its been a long 5 days i have been out of action , couldn't do any workout in gym , did get some time to swim once and few game of table tennis but that was all . Now what i am thinking is that i only have 2 days this week that i can workout that is Fri and Sat , Sun the gym is closed and Mehdi says we shouldn't do 2 workouts together so i am thinking is tomorrow i will do my workout A Squats , Bench and Rows . And on Saturday i will do Workout B without Squats that is OHP and DeadLifts . That way i will have 2 workout sessions this week .

Nice work on the deads, they're coming up nicely. Just see how you go with the squatting, 3 days a week might take your body a little time to adjust to squatting with that much frequency.

Where are you off to now, business or pleasure?


Well this trip and the previous one were both business . I am an Airline Pilot by profession so end up going for layovers once in a while , luckily i am still positioned in Delhi my hometown but in a month or so i will be posted to Kolkata and i wonder how easy it will be to work out there .

WEEK 9 WORKOUT #21 A

SQUATS
10xBar
8x27kgs
5x37kgs
5x53kgs

5x5x74.5kgs

I needed some support in the last set not much but just a little so that i dont lockout in the bottom position . These are really killing me i take good 30 mins to finish with just squats , I have no idea how will i do linear progression for 5 more weeks grrrr

BENCH PRESS
10xBar
10x27kgs
5x37kgs

5x5x54.5kgs

Instead of the required 2.5kg Increment from my previous workout i went up by 5 kg and i pulled it off :boxer:
Next week i'l reach my First goal which i set when i started , that was to have a 20kg plate each side of the bar .

BENT OVER ROWS

Couldn't do them today as i was out of steam and time by the time i finished above so i plan on doing them tomorrow with DEadlifts instead of doing Squats i wll add them . Shouldn't be too much on by back i hope Barbell Rows and DeadLifts together .

I am happy with the progress i mean the squats do take the hell out of me in terms of effort but i still haven't stalled and next workout i will meet my Initial Squats goal as well that is 30kgs Weight each side of the barbell and that would be my BodyWeight Squat .

WEEK 9 WORKOUT #22 B

Back to Back to Stonglifts workout are killer indeed but well have to squeeze them in somehow when you dont get enough time .So here's my today's log .

No SQUATS as i just did 5x5 of my new PB yest

Overhead Press
10xBar
10x27kgs
5x7.5kgs

5x5x39.5kgs
I had to get a spot to assist my last two sets , i almost went off balance in the last set with the barbell overhead ( That was a scary feeling ) but tightened my gut got the body in balance and finished it .

Pendlay ROWs

No Warmups on this one
5x5x54.5kgs

DEADLIFTS

5x57kgs
3x67kgs
3x77kgs

1x5x92kgs PB
I guess i did screw with my form a little bit on this , will put up a video by today for the same , as in when i was getting up i could actually feel my shoulders curling inward to lift the weight and not up and back .

Overall it was a good workout considering i just did heavy squats a day before i managed to achieve all my goals for the session , as for as OHP i have decided to increase the weight next time but just keep a spot around to get done with the nasty last rep or two .

I am planning to get some Whey Protein as a christmas gift to myself ;) will start with it in January. i am already at the peek of all my lifts so i am happy the year is ending on a good note here , i am definitely stronger than ever before but its a long journey before i sit back and relax .
CHeers !

hi all , hope all you guys had a good Christmas . I am just back from short vacation from GOA , place with amazing beaches :)

Anyhow as you guys can see from my Log i have only done 3 workouts last 3 weeks which sucks add to it unmanaged eating . Now with temperatures going so low i really need to get as much motivation i can get and get towards my goal lifts .

I wanted to share my new years resolution in terms of lifting , I will ontinue focusing on Strength Training till i reach following goals :-

Bench Press - 80 kgs
Squats - 100 kgs
Deadlifts - 125 kgs
OHP - 60 kgs
BodyWeight Chins 1x10
Parallel Bar Dips 1x10 ( with a 5kg dumbbell atleast )

So i hope all of you will be with me in this coming year motivating me , guiding me to reach my goals as soon as possible so i can move to bigger goals .

CHEERS :)
