I wouldn't say your fat, maybe chubby but by no means fat. Goodluck with everything.

05-06-2004, 02:27 AM
What happened to the last journal? :)

You may want to try lower weight on the wrist curls, and concentrate on a really tight contraction. That's what I do anyway, I'm using sub 10kg. You could also try some static holds instead.

05-06-2004, 01:49 PM
Tried a diffrent gym 2day, it was **** lol. Small and poorly equipped, compared to the huge well equipped gym that was recommended to me by my drinkin buddies, the local hells angels haha. Did the following-Smith squats 3x8 @ 30kg
Leg curl 3x8 @ 30kg
Lying leg curl 3x8 @ 25kg
75 rep 3 minute workout on calf raise machine @ 40kg

Bonus, the protein shake tasted good, but that was it. It was all too cramped, one member of staff...a scrawny bimbo so no one to spot me. Back to the other methinks. Gonna Start spreadin my leg workouts across my arm days, gotta drop deads too, ****ed my lower back up with bad form, always had back problems and i cant keep it straight when i do em. They're good but they have 2 go, maybe when my backs better.

So far i've eaten Breakfast Brown bread sandwich packed with beef(was in a rush to get 2 the gym in enough time before it closed as i got up late)
Post workout protein shake
Dinner Breaded fish cubes, pasta and garlic mushrooms
Probably go for some eggs and chicken for tea

05-06-2004, 02:02 PM
This is what i got down now

05-07-2004, 05:54 PM
Started loading with Cell-Tech today, altho the loading amounts stated on the tub seem a little excessive to what guys on the board say...hmmm. Seemd cheaper than the rest but now i think about it, gah **** it, i've got it now. Back at the gym tmoro for my shoulder/traps/neck day(hopin the creatine will get my neck thicker from my neck flexion/extensions). Couldn't even get outta bed today from the pains in my legs/shoulders/chest. Every time i get up feels like im squattin infinite kg's! Hopefully be a bit better tommorow! Anyway, meal plan-

Breakfast-8 Eggs(2 w/yolk) ommelete with cheese chopped/melted in and cheese slices on w/3slices whole bread
1 Scoop cell-tech, eugh
Dinner-6 eggs scrambled (3 w/yolk) with half tin chopped corned beef(blasted thru the health grill b4 hand to remove some fat) and 2 slices whole bread
Had some crisps and a choc bar, naughty me, wont do it again lol
Gonna go for some chicken and pasta or egg(original lol) and cheese on a baguette, peace...

05-08-2004, 11:49 AM

05-13-2004, 10:27 AM
Went to the gym, but like an idiot did tris before chest and on the wrong day too, shoulda been my back/bis day!
Incline tricep extension 3x6 @ 10kg! (only managed 6 coz i was then told it was an olympic tri extension bar and that the sides weighed a total of 71/2 k, so i ended up doin 17 1/2kg, thats why i did 6 not 8)
Cable pushdowns 3x8 @.....cant remember(gah)
Barbell banch press 3x6 @ 30kg (again without me knowing an olympic bar so ended up bein 37 1/2 kg)
Incline press 3x8 @ 30kg
Pec deck 3x8 @....cant remember

Close grip lat pulldowns 3x8 @ 25kg

Buy some dextrose somewhere (not sure where in the UK) and mix that into your postworkout shake along with the creatine.

Again had no money for the gym so i did some shoulder stuff at home.....eugh.....
DB Shoulder press 1x6 1x6 1x5.5 @ 37.5 Ibs per DB

Side lateral raises 1x8 1x7.5 1x7.5 @ 13 Ibs per DB

Front raises 1x7 1x6.5 1x6 @ 13 Ibs per DB

After thos heavy DB presses my shoulders really werent wanting to let me do those front raises. Cutting SUCKS. Hopefully UD 2.0 will help next week. I'll start a new journal, hopefully as many people will post on that one as do on this....my....wouldnt that be exciting(what? sarcasm? oh yes...your right...i am basically the only one to post in my journal.....). Diet sucked today, was under for protein and carbs by quite a bit, and over on fat and total cals, i messed up, suppose all i can do is get back on track....and look forward to that full body workout on monday as part of my new UD 2.0....ugh.....

06-18-2004, 08:14 PM
Oh yeah, and yesterday i was at my friends house and his older sister who i hate has a cat. So while she was out i unwrapped all the toilet roll of the cardboard cylinders, put them on its legs and tried to make it walk like a robot....it didnt work, but it was fun nontheless, damn i hate cats!

06-19-2004, 11:32 PM
lol robot cat. I've put a sock on a cats head before, it was hilarious; it was running into doors trying to back out of it.
Nice progress man, sucks you have to pay for each workout at the gym. Maybe a small home gym would be better in the long run. Maybe not.
