    Hello guys,

    I decided to keep a log to see if my results are improving or not. I should be posting here three times a week on how I did on last workout.

    My routine is:

    Workout A

    Squats 5x5
    Bench Press 5x5
    Barbell Rows 5x5
    Pull ups 5x5
    Reverse Flies sitting on a bench 3x10 or DB FLies 3x10

    Workout B

    Deadlifts 5x5
    Overhead Presses 5x5
    Dumbbell Rows 5x5
    Lunges 5x5
    French Presses 3x10


    My Stats:

    Started at 5'8 and 110lbs
    Now at 5'8 and 132lbs
    Goal is to be at 154lbs by the end of the year!

    Going to workout later today so will post some results later!

    Thanx


    Newest workout results, yesterday I was able to hit another PB in Deads. Did 5x5 with 102,5 kilos!! YAY! Overhead presses were great too at 40 kilos and 5x5 (gonna be hitting PB soon).

    Deads 102,5kg at 5x5
    Lunges 27,5 kg 5x8
    O. Press 40 kg 5x5
    DB Flies 12,5kg 3x8
    DB Rows 27,5 kg 3x10

    Next workout tomorrow! Squatting 75kg another time, should BB Row 62,5 kilos for 5x5. Would be another PB!

    That 5x5 training is great for strength!

    Looking very good. The deadlifts look very strong. Don't forget that they might have drained you a bit which means you couldnt do the OP as you wanted. Keep going at it and you will be smashing your pb's constantly .

    Ok, back to workouts.. I have missed one workout last week. Back on track this week.

    Today I had a good workout:
    Squats 77,5kg 5x5
    Bench Press 60 4x5, 1x3 (less then last time )
    BB Rows 72,5kg 5x5
    Biceps Curls (decided to switch Reverse flies to day to give biceps some work) 15kg 1x10, 2x7
    Pull Ups 4x5, 1x4

    Surprisingly, I have gained some strength in biceps, I was really surprised to pick up 15kg DBs and do 10 reps on first set. Before training with this program I was doing 6-7 reps on first set only, then do like 5 reps on next two sets.. Now it has gotten a lot stronger.. Deads, BB Rows, DB Rows and pull ups are working very well.
    Lifts:

    Bench Press 60kg 5x5
    Squats 77,5 kg 5x5
    Deads 112,5kg 5x5
    BB Rows 80kg 5x5
    Overhead Pr. 40kg 5x5

    Hey there, looking good in here. Keep it up!

    How do you like doing 5 x 5?

    Also, do you do warm up sets prior to those 5 x 5?

    Trying not to die young.

    Hi, thanx!

    I love it, I have been progressing nicely! And it allows me to focus on doing mostly compound exercises so I love it

    Nope, no warm up sets, just some running o warm the body up...

    Another workout today:

    Deads 110kg 3x5, 1x4, 1x3
    Overhead press 40kg 4x5, 1x4
    Inline DB Press 17,5kg 5x5
    BB Rows 75kg 5x5
    Lunges 27,5kg 3x9

    God I HATE lunges.... it just kills me..

    PB at BB Rows but it was very hard since my grip is starting to give out and I will have to do all reps from the ground from now on probably.

    Didn't get PB at Deads at 110kgs but still pretty good result since it was my 1RM like 2 months a go. No way I could have done 3 reps back then.. Grip is giving out on this exercise too, hope to buy gloves ASAP and it should help...

    Hey junk!

    Good job with the Squats man, getting there!! Nice BB rows too, are you doing full ROM with them? Meaning the weight touches the floor then u row it back into your lower abs. Good stuff !

    I usually don't do them that way (Pendalay rows) but did them today with 80 kilos because the grip is giving out for me so I kinda had to do so.

    Deads 110kg 5x5. And did them quite easy, just had last set was a challenge.
    Overhead presses 42,5 kg 2x5, 2x3, 1x2

    BB Rows 80kg 5x5

    Squats 80kg 5x5 (but not a perfect form so gotta get another workout with 80)

    Lateral Raises 10kg 2x8, 1x7
    BB Rows 85kg 4x5, 1x4
    Pull ups 4x5, 1x6

    Pretty good workout today. Hope to bust through that BP plateau..

    OK, I was back in the gym yesterday after taking a week off of training.

    And this was my worst workout ever!!! I made a mistake of going full speed in it. I didn't easy myself back into training and trained 100 percent. As a result I wasn't able to finish workout.. First time ever...

    Deads 112,5 kg 3x5, 1x4, 1x3
    OVP 40kg 3x5, 2x3
    DB Incline Press 20kg 5x5
    BB Rows 80kg 3x5

    Didn't do lunges and 2 sets of BB Rows. PLus had to take away 5 kg off Rows because the form sucked...I was too tired...I'm back in the gym tomorrow. Probably gonna go easy instead of full strength...
