  11. It does look good, had a browse earlier and read an interview with the man himself and I've gotta say I was less than impressed at how arrogant and aggressive he comes across.. not that I care as long as his programme works ahha Friday 2/11/12 Bodyweight 79Kg ish Tonights playlist consisted of Your Demise, The Red Chord and Dead Swans, everything is better with hardcore. Dead lifts! 40 Kg x 5 60 Kg x 4 80 Kg x 4 Had a little rest grabbed my ipod and busted out a Pb! 90 Kg x 3 I put 95 Kg on and thought, fuck it I'll make it even 100 Kg x 1 My grip failed me but if I hadn't had to put it down to the floor I could have nailed another rep 100 Kg (mixed grip) x 1.

  15. I use machines in my workouts but as ve said only after I've finished my main lifts using free weights, it's nice to get a pump from the lat pulldown machine after finishing my pull ups for example. I have used them quite recently due to not having a spotter, felt it would be safer and better than not working out at all, I'm not one of those people who would be confident enough to ask a stranger or trainer at the gym to spot me ahha
  16. That's what I thought, I used to read veggiesasquach's training log before he left the site and he spoke very highly of the programme (: do you follow a custom one dude?
  17. Cheers captfit! My one rep max is 72.5 at the moment didn't wanna free weight that without a spotter though ahha
  18. Hey mini, well I have been lifting on an off for quite a while followed a basic bodybuilding programme after reading roberts book. Thought about stronglifts but don't like the 3 days squatting a week ahha. I'm gonna keep at what I'm doing at the mo because the progress is actually okay just a bit slow. After christmas I'm thinking of doing wendlers 5/3/1 after hearing great things about it
  19. There's some good advice on here, spot on phyto and CO. Where abouts in england are you from charlotte? I'm in the south on the isle of wight
  20. I love this thread it's so inspiring! That's some rad deadlifting asparagus!
  21. Wednesday 31/10/12 Bodyweight 79 Kg Didn't have a spotter today as it's halloween there's a bunch of wildlife talks and stuff going on at the steam railway and my training partner is there all day whereas I finished at 5, so.. no squats or bench despite it being squat and bench day. fuck!

Wide Dips x10 x10 x10 Knuckle Press ups x 20 4 sets on the fly machine Front raises 5 Kg plate x 8 10 Kg plate x 10 15 Kg plate x 10
