Ah bugger! I'll try uploading it again or something, I'm squatting today for pbs at lunch time at college lol, don't think I'll be allowed to film but I'll ask permission ahha. Going for 115Kg to make sure I can still do it, then 120 and see how that goes :), I would test it from home but my "squatstands" are likely to crumble under that weight

So I trained around 11ish, just warm up squat and stretch. Got a pb but not too content with it :/
Warmups stretch
20Kg x 8
60Kg x 5
90Kg x 3
Then..
SQUAT max attempts!
115Kg x 1 felt okay
120Kg x 1 PB
125Kg x 1 PB shaky and crap but got it
130Kg x 1 PB! Felt terrible, looked terrible but its still a new record I probably could have done a little bit more but was advised by the trainer spotting me not to continue :/ my back feels a bit crap now too eurgh.
Stretch/cool down
Am currently playing with the animals at college.. Bench max testing tomorrow!

Haha hey guys! It must be something I ate :p although being a bit pessimistic here, the DL was a 25kg increase but it took months! The squat was only a 12Kg increase and that took even longer :/ maybe I shouldn't be so hard on myself eh?
Looking at a few new ideas for training, I wanna give higher reps a go! I've also decided to take my eating as seriously as my lifting, I ordered some creatine Lglutamine soya protein and brown rice protein, I'm going shopping at the weekend and buying loadssss of stuff! I've got a big list and some ideas of what I'll need to eat in a given day.
I used a calorie calculator and apparently I need 3600 calories per day for muscle growth, now is it just me or is that not that much? I'm not too good with nutrition.

At least you gave up after setting a new PB, nice! How did the 80kg feel?

I knowww but I had my heart set on a heavier PB like 90kg or at least 85Kg, soon as the 80Kg bar touched my chest I was like "shit.." Haha
