    Trying to get strong

    silly title but this is a log for me feel free to follow and critique Been a bit ill so should see numbers go up quickly at first.
    I believe that when the body is strong, the mind thinks strong thoughts. Time spent away from the Iron makes my mind degenerate. I wallow in a thick depression. My body shuts down my mind.

    ...Wow. You're actually the person that I WISH I'VE BECOME. Hopefully, within 2-3 years, I could surpass you...

    Until then, the only thing that i can give you are compliments. There are lots of freaky strong people in this site.

    Samj - do you normally ramp the weights like that? I used to go all out on every set and try for 5 but for the last 2 weeks i've decided to ramp the weights instead and feel like its going to work much better.

    Just wondered about your experience with it

    Sorry for being unclear... basically after a warmup I basically use the same weight on the bar and my set usually get something like 5-4-4-3-3. I think ramping the weight like you do is going to be much better. Been doing it 2 weeks now and it feels much better anyway.

    By the time you get to 21 your are gonna be one strong mofo
