10Kg x 10 reps
10Kg x 10 reps

Side raises
5Kg x 12 reps

Nice lifts man, especially the overhead press. Haven't been doing those much myself, so I doubt I could manage 22.5kgs (50lbs, right?).

Hey, what makes a banana cheeky?

It's cool that you are helping young people. I think that many of them are misguided, usually by poor/absent parenting. It's a very serious problem here in the States. Many of them have no work ethic, or major entitlement issues. Good stuff man, I'm sure they can learn a lot from someone like you.

Good stuff on the OHP, I'm going to give the 22s a go this week, good motivation

On the lunges try doing sets of 5 per leg or doing a set per leg and then racking the weight and get a few breaths and go again. If you are doing 10 reps for each leg then that is 20 reps on the core! Alternatively you could just keep going at them and adapt!

Never thought of it that way mate, good idea i'll definitely stick to 5 per leg from now on :)
Race you to 30s on ohp? :p

It's about 50lbs per arm mate yeah :) I'm proper pleased with my ohp!
Yeah the young people I work with aren't that much younger than me (im 24) which is terrifying considering most of them live in hostels and some have even lived on the streets, it's shocking thinking that wealthy countries that we live in still have homeless teenagers :/ anyways I run a little Facebook page to promote the group, it's not very big but it's only just been made really :)

Training was odd today, I woke up with shoulder DOMS which made bench press and front raises dreadful!

DB bench press - weight is per dumbbell and reps are per arm
10Kg x 10 reps
20Kg x 10 reps
30Kg x 1 rep.. Soon realised it was 35Kg which was why I couldn't budge it.. Haha
30Kg x 8 dodgy reps. Will repeat this weight next chest session when I don't have bad DOMS..
Press ups to finish x 25 reps

Skull crushers
10Kg x 12 reps
20Kg x 12 reps
20Kg x 12 reps
27.5Kg x 12 reps

Front raises. These sucked from the shoulder DOMS so I kept it fairly light
10Kg x 12 reps
10Kg x 12 reps
15Kg x 12 reps
15Kg x 12 reps

Managed to wrangle a day off today so I'm gonna spend some time with the girlfriend!

30 for ten, that'll be the day!
Don't forget to double the sets add 25% plus weight on the lunges if you drop the reps, lol you're going to hate me!!!

Hahaha oh man I totally do! :p
Although I only added one extra set.. And didn't put the weight up too much.. Il just keep increasing from here

So I woke up in the strangest mood.. Had an overwhelming urge to pound the crap out of my punching bag at like 6am.. Didn't have work till 10ish so got in some early morning training.

10Kg x 10 reps
15Kg x 8 reps
17.5Kg x 6 reps
Finished with a drop set to band curls x 30 ouchhhhhhh

Lunges (took some advice and kept reps at 5 per leg which was a lot better! )
10Kg x 5 reps each leg + superset of calf raises 10Kg x 30 reps
10Kg x 5 reps each leg + superset of calf raises 10Kg x 30 reps
20Kg x 5 reps each leg + superset of calf raises 20Kg x 30 reps
20Kg x 5 reps each leg + superset of calf raises 20Kg x 30 reps
25Kg x 5 reps each leg + superset of calf raises 25Kg x 30 reps
Calf torture eurghhhhh

Sounds like a great way to start the day !!

Hey, I think that sometimes what I eat before I go to bed has somewhat of an effect on my mood when I wake up the next day. Some foods give me really dark, messed up dreams whereas other types of food I have some amazing dreams and wake up feeling top of the world.

I think you're right there MF and it also depends on what I've watched on tv and stuff.
So to anyone confused about my blue roses tattoo shifting sides, it's in the mirror :p

Yeah I hear you. Don't tend to watch a lot of TV and I try to shut down the laptop at least an hour before I go up to bed.
