Deadlift 85kg 1 x 6, 4, 3

Lockouts 50kg 3 x 10 secs

Some good progress although my grip was totally knackered by the time I got to the lockouts I couldn't even pick up anything heavier than 50kg.

Then I did 15 mins on the bike at level 5, which was 6.15 km.

I am now ravenous...haven't been this hungry after the gym for a long time!

21/04/07

So training in the hotel gym in India, it's okay but having to use machines (no idea what the actual weights are) and I don't think that there are enough free weights for my deadlift...also all the weights are in lbs!

Leg press 160 3 x 10
Lunges 30lbs 2 x 8, 1 x 6
Wrist Curl 30lbs 3 x 8
Incline twist crunch 20,10 (the worst sit up board in the world)
Jack knife sit ups 3 x 15

This killed my legs the next day!

24/04/07

Incline Chest Press 120 3 x 6
Dumbell Flys 40 lbs 3 x 8
Military Press 50 lbs 2 x 8, 1 x 7
Shoulder Press 30 3 x 8
Skullcrusher 50 lbs 8, 2 x 10

Someone from the hotel came and spotted me for my skullcrusher after the first rep which was interesting, managed to squeeze out more reps and could feel it in my muscles afterwards.

Sorry to hear that mate.

I have to say looking at your training over the last few months you have lost a bit of strength. Anything you can pinpoint? Want a hand devising new routine or anything?
