Hahaha. I seriously need to train my arms, they haven't been trained in probably over a month. Ironically they probably have the most potential out of all my bodyparts :?

Working sets
55Kg x 5 (was supposed to be 65Kg but I miss calculated.. Fail)
70Kg x 5
80Kg x (5 or more) 8! The last two reps weren't quite parallel but felt okay!
Some guy was staring at me the whole time like I was some kind of fucking wizard firing lightening bolts from my butt. Offputting.

Leg press
Heavyyyy
X12

X12

Leg extensions 4 sets

Crunches

Good stuff, felt good throughout, but I'm looking forward to getting heavy duty squats stands for home so I never have to go in that place again baha

I believe the proper way to quote that is with the correct title...

Hahaha :D love it! If only I could change my username :p
Cheers captfit, I'm not really a fan of the leg press but thought it would be good to throw it in.
Got a fair bit of doms today but have a deadlift and shoulder workout to do after I finish work.. Wish me luck ahha

20Kg x 8 plenty of stretching, mostly dynamic stretches for legs.
Working sets
72.5Kg x 5
85 Kg x 5
95 Kg x (5 or more) 8! Probably a rep pb ahha, last 3 reps were mixed grip and plenty of chalk but still very happy with it, it almost knocked the living daylight out of me ahha

OVERHEAD PRESS
Warm up
20 Kg x 8

30 Kg x 5
35 Kg x 5
40 Kg x (5 or more) 13! Another rep pb, felt amazing and still feeling pumped :)

Pull ups (conventional)

Thought it would be cool to apply the same rep ranges to pull ups as with the main lifts :)

Bicep/totally rad bro barbell curls
20 Kg x 10
25 Kg x 10
30 Kg x 10 just about
30 Kg x 7
This wasn't too good on my wrists, I definitely need an ez curl bar..

Plate rows (each arm)
5kg x 12
10Kg x 12
15Kg x 12
Superset to plate shrugs
20Kg each arm x 12
Drop set 10Kg each arm x 12

Done and done great session, I've got a good feeling about february

Yep all standing mate, which means I have to do a clean before my first rep, I don't mind though, maybe when I get some squat stands I'll use that as a help.
Are you notcing any changes with using the menter programme matey? Oh and is it snowing in wales? Its snowing in some parts but mild and sunny on the iow haha

Well, awkward to admit it, but sometimes I keep looking at guys(most of the time girls, but guys also) while squating or deadlifting to check how it is done, since I`m a noob(lifting for only 3 weeks now) and I don`t know to do it right, the proper form. I watch some youtube videos to learn, but watching someone doing it live is a whole different experience... ¬¬

So maybe you helped someone out with all your butt lightnings =)
