I trained yesterday and it was fucking awesome!

Dumbbell bench press - weight is per dumbbell
10Kg x 12 reps per arm
25Kg x 12 reps per arm
35Kg x 7 reps per arm! Will increase to 37.5Kg next session, I felt like there were a couple of reps still in the tank..
25Kg x 12 reps per arm!

Wide grip push ups x 30 reps

Tricep kickbacks, I loved them! And I'm feeling the burn from them which I don't often get in my triceps! I won't bother logging them at the moment because I was just figuring out what weight to use for them, I have it written down on my paper journal.

Diamond push ups x 20 reps

Front raises
10Kg x 12 reps
10Kg x 12 reps
15Kg x 12 reps
15Kg x 12 reps

No training today, a friend of mine is moving away so off out for a few beers and crap food!

Nice mate! Getting up there with the DB Bench! Tricep kickbacks always kill me so I "forget" to do them from time to time aha 8) You ever try the one where you lie on a bench, DB's in hand, do a chest pull over, and when your arms are perpendicular to the floor, bend the arms toward your head for a skull crusher? One move, insane burn. You're killing it with those diamond pushups too man - putting me to shame!

Have some pints for me - I'm jealous. Let me know what you're drinking so maybe I can try something new!

Haven't heard of that before bro, I'm not very adventurous with my training if I'm honest haha!
I had a couple of ales, 'badger' is the brand name, it's a very English drink haha!
I've not trained today and won't tomorrow either but I've been using my grip trainer constantly, will train Sunday and Monday and then have a few more off for Christmas Eve/day and boxing day!

Okay scrap that I've totally caved in.. I'm gonna get a little bit of training in now after all.
I wanna do something different so I'm thinking of doing dumbbell deadlifts. I can barbell deadlifts 175Kg but I can only maximise each dumbbell to weigh 62.5Kgs.
Il just see how it goes I guess :)

Dude 176kg is a pretty beastly deadlift! If you're doing db deadlifts, maybe try single leg deadlift, straight leg on a box, some good mornings, or even wide leg deadlifts - those are killer on the hammies!

Well I just went for your basic dumbbell deadlifts and.... What the fuck!! They were so hard!

Dumbbell deadlifts -weight is combined dumbbells
50Kg x 12 reps
70Kg x 12 reps
80Kg x 12 reps
80Kg x 10 reps
I think it was a balance issue, or maybe the strain on grip, either way I liked using dumbbells for this! I felt it doing some major damage haha

Bicep concentration curls weight is per dumbbell reps are per arm.
I deloaded a fair bit and switched to concentration curls for a bit of shape.

5Kg x 12 reps
7.5Kg x 12 reps
10Kg x 12 reps
12.5Kg x 12 reps

10Kg x 8 walking lunges and 8 squats
10Kg x 8 walking lunges and 8 squats
15Kg x 10 walking lunges and 10 squats
15Kg x 10 walking lunges and 10 squats

My whole lower body was totally fucked from the DLs haha
Looking forward to getting some training in on Monday!
