Thanks a lot, lelle! We'll make you look like this or better, just wait ;) (you wouldn't think i was very unsportive when i was 15)

Thanks SeaSiren! :D

Day 28:

Bench Press: *Jawsmusicinthebackground* I was really anxious how this would turn out :? After warming up, i did two easy sets of 6 reps with 90kg. No pain. :D Great! 8) Although 90kg were easy, i think they should have been even easier :roll:

Incline bench flies: 22kg for 6, 4 reps (short break).

Dips: 35kg for 5, 3, 2 reps (very short breaks!)

Barbell press: 40kg for 8 reps - no pain! 8)

Upright row: 40kg for 8 reps.

Squat: Warming weights felt easy and comfortable, but the 120kg for 2x6 reps were harder than i thought, esp. in the lower back :? I hope the deconditioning of 9 days wasn't too long...

Calves, standing: 110kg for 6, 6 reps, loaded stretching after each rep for 5 seconds and stretching in between.

Abs: Crunches and side crunches.

Rotatorcuff: 4 sets each side, 3 exercises, 10 reps each.

The training was harder than expected, especially the dips and squats. But the upright row and bench were easy. I earned myself one of my precious Vega samples into my muesli 8)
Tomorrow back day again :)

Day 29:


Chin ups (as it's correct - i've learned from Will ;) ): 30kg for 6, 4, 2 reps. Easy 8)
Barbell row: 100kg for 4, 4, 4 reps.
SL Deadlift: 135kg for 6, 6 reps.
T-Bar: 90kg for 4, 4 reps.
Dumbell curls on incline bench: 16,5kg for 8 reps.
Barbell shrugs: 145kg for 10 reps.
Z-Bar pullovers: 50kg for 10 reps.
Calves, seated: 110kg for 12 reps.
Abs machine: 60kg for 6, 6 reps

It was a great workout, it felt all quite easy except the barbell row. Pronated grip is really harder on that exercise. I got a good feeling in the worked muscles, after the pullovers my triceps felt great for a minute :roll:

Day 31:

Rotator cuff exercises in the morning, just a few sets.


Chin-ups: 35kg for 4, 4, 4 reps.
Barbell row: 102,5kg for 4, 4, 4 reps. I didn't increase to 105kg as planned, because the 100 on tuesday were quite heavy. But i noticed today the same as on tuesday: the first set is heavy, the second better and the third the easiest!
SL Deadlift: 140kg for 4, 4, 4 reps.
T-Bar: 95kg for 4, 4 reps.
Incline bench Dumbell curls: 18kg for 8 reps.
Barbell shrugs: 150kg for 5, 5 reps.
Pullovers: 52,5kg for 6, 4 reps.
Calves, seated: 120kg for 12 reps.
Abs machine: 65kg for 6, 6 reps.

And here are a few shots we did two days ago that didn't make it into the calendar.
