You know I've just popped my first ibuprofen in about a year and half so it must be sore! And currently have a bag of frozen spinach on it :D

Decided against deadlifts as I didn't fancy a heavy bar hitting my sore knee, still had a good workout and my back feels pretty wrecked so its all good! Hit some extra pullups this week which is good although the gloves that I thought might help make pull ups a bit more comfortable made no difference whatsoever - oh well.. Calfs felt full and pumped at the end, some of the calf raises on the leg press weren't the best form but the calfs felt like they got a good workout. As the gym was empty I took a few sneaky leg progress shots. My lower leg looks a bit full and watery to me but otherwise quite happy with progress.

I took some more progress photos yesterday and am a bit disheartened at how cr*p my back looks, maybe its angle and poor lighting but it doesn't look like its changed much :( (and no I won't show the pictures) after seeing a thread about someone getting their bf % checked Im under no illusion that mine is probably about 5-6% higher than I first thought. I plan to continue "bulking" however as I don't think shredding any fat will do my any good looks wise! If I can put some weight on and then have a decent cut to get my bodyfat nicely low I can get back onto weight gain. I'd rather have a bit of extra fat than be skinny and lean.

Still not keen on Romanian deadlifts, I seem to feel them more in my lower back than anywhere else although this probably isn't a bad thing with the absence of deadlifts of late. Had a shuffle about with my tricep exercises too by doing dips first then close grip bench with incline skulls to finish.

Straight leg deadlift
12 x 20kg
12 x 60kg (+5kg)
12 x 60kg (+5kg)
12 x 60kg (+5kg)

Romanian deadlift
12 x 80kg (+5kg)
12 x 80kg (+5kg)
12 x 80kg (+5kg)

Tricep dips

8

Close grip bench press (smith machine)
10 x 30kg
8 x 30kg
8 x 30kg

Incline skullcrusher
12 x 22.5kg
12 x 25kg
12 x 25kg

Leg curl
12 x 20kg (+2.5kg)*single leg*
12 x 20kg (+2.5kg)*single leg*
12 x 20kg (+2.5kg)*single leg*
25 x 20kg
