11/02
day 27

squat
65kg
bench
-
row
30kg

squats felt amazing, i felt like i had so much power still unused, still off benching just whilst my shoulder recovers and I've taken my row weight down again because i was jolting the weight up and have been for a while so I'm trying to lift heavier than i can, if i don't manage to make contact between my body and the bar, I'm going to class it as a failed rep.

was also weigh in day and according to the scales at the gym, i the last two weeks I've lost 3kg of muscle and gained 5kg of fat, this is obviously majorly wrong. not a very good days training at all.

Keep up the good work mate, don't get too hung up on what the scale tells you.

Hope you had a great weekend and your week is going well MF.

Oh I didn't believe it, was just a little disheartening to see, the weight on the bar is the one I'm concerned with, and that's only going in one direction, up

13/02
day 28

squat
67.5kg
press
30kg
deadlift 100kg
1

squats were amazing again, im only going just below parallel now as the weight is getting heavyer, but im feeling it more on the inside of my thighs, my abductors i think, is this normal, is also the reason i couldnt complete my deads, really chuffed with my presses, best ive ever done:)

and the scales must have been wrong on monday because ive now apparantly lost 1kg of fat and gained 2.8kg of muscle, dont know if this is completely accurate, just happy that theyre both going in the right direction

I would say continue on with 47.5kg matey, all that resting could have been beneficial to your strength, was 45 fairly easy or did you scrape through it?
