11/03
day 39

no squats

shoulder press
20kg 1x10
25 1x5
30 1x2
35
3/2/2/2/2

deadlift
20kg 1x10
40 1x5
60 1x2
75 1x5

dips
1/1/4

up right rows
20kg
3/3/3/3/3

first day of no squats :( , struggled with shoulder presses maybe because ive upped the weight or maybe because im not rired up after my squats. deads were good but there was a twinge in my thigh(might have to stop leg work completely for a while :( thought id try dips again as i had extra time and surprised my self on the third set( lack of confidence oon the first two maybe) and upright rows to assist with shoulder presses.

instead of using the inacurate body fat scales at the gym they have finally invested in a set of calipers and the amazing news is im 11.2% and not 14.2% as i thought:) best diet ever haha.

went in with trepardations about my bench seeing as last time i maxed out i tore up my shoulder but 50kg was easy as anything, i had to sheck the plates twice because it didnt feel heavy enough :) rows were tough towards the end so i thought id add in some extra back work as it feels like the part of me thats lagging behing

Four PB's broken in a week? That's insane.

Hope your thigh comes right, rest it up. Good stuff going on in here, you're making some solid progress MF.

Yeah all good here man, its typical I've got some time off and was looking forward to getting the bike out so it decides to piss down.. Baha, are you gonna throw in some extra cardio soon since summers on its way? 8)

Sounds rad :) I avoid the road as I got knocked off once and it terrifies me going on it.. But there's a beautiful/creepy cycle path near me that follows the river for 5 miles, it used to be a railway line haha! Get some photos up on the cycling thread ;)
