    Good idea Kong will do that next week and maybe swap them around each workout to keep me on my toes.

    Cheers OR the meal was awesome :-)

    Workout 24-06-10

    DEADLIFTS
    New PR on free bar, felt good but my grip died first before my back
    6+2+2+2x95kg./209lbs.

    SQUATS
    New PR seems i had way more in the tank than i ever thought with squats hope they shoot up to around my deads soon... Beat my pr by 12.5kg, just thought screw it lets try another 2 ten plates!
    6+2+2+2x87.5kg./192.5lbs.

    CALF RAISES
    Used a bar rather than leg press.
    6+2+2+2x 90kg. 198lbs


    Ate huge yesterday and lifted huge for my standards, hope to get my squat and dead over 110 by end of this five weeks. Making good gains again now after sqapping movements and gyms about loving it.

    How much do you weigh? Am I right in saying you're squatting over 1x bodyweight for 6 reps now? That's really good progress for a beginner. You must be closing in on a 1.5x bw squat now, which is a good milestone. You'll know your "not weak" by then.

    Well went for a workout today and my back felt a bit stiff from the high intensity workout on Sunday.

    I warmed up, stretched off and started a ramp set on deads but felt stiff and swore down my right side.

    It was not painfull as such but now i feel a bit more experienced and have a slightly better grip on my own body and what it is telling me, i decided to call it a day and not push myself to an injury just because i was already at the Gym!

    So will give it a shot tomorrow

    Probably a good idea. I think that sometimes it's good to push through soreness sometimes - if it's muscular - but if you feel stiff and you're risking heavy deadlifts it's always best to play on the safe side.

    Lower Body

    Whoop New Pr's

    Deadlifts

    6+2+2+2x 100KG (202LBS)

    Two problems with this PR on a real Bar, first i lost my grip 3 into the six and had to re-adjust, i have combated that by doing two things, buying some gloves and by doing my calf raises with 34KG Dunbells rather than a bar on my shoulders and after each set of 6 holding them untill my grip fails. Any thoughts on this?

    Squats

    6+2+2+2x97.5KG (198.2LBS)

    Calf Raises

    6+2+2+2x 34KG Each hand...


    Weighted plank and situps to finish...


    Happy with the new PR's and happy my back held out.

    Next workout tomorrow afternoon.

    Nice job despite being tired. You might want to add some extra grip work. You could just hang from the chinning bar for time. Try to hold on longer each time. Simple to do after your workout.

    My grip is good for my chin-ups and rows. But, my grip sucks when it comes to deadlift. I have to take my own advice and start working on grip strength.
