    You roll well with the push presses and deads, look forward to seeing you introduce other movements along the way. Good luck with everything, including possibilities of joining up at a good gym near you just for variety.

    Cycle Review (07/11/2011 - 08/06/2011)

    BW: 187lbs - 190lbs (+3lbs)

    Push Press
    185lbs x 5 - 195lbs x 5 (+10lbs)
    total tonnage: 30925lbs - 23450lbs (-7475lbs)

    Deadlift
    365lbs x 5 - 375lbs x 5 (+10lbs)
    total tonnage: 52375lbs - 40915lbs (-11460lbs)

    I'll be adding some frequency to my training in the next couple of cycles with push presses and deadlifts still as main lifts but throwing in some GPP/Grip/Assistance in the off days... We'll see how it goes...

    BW: 190lbs
    Diet: Bad. Very busy days at work this week, also I'll be traveling to Qatar on Saturday for work and I'll be there for a week... I'll see how I can manage with Ramadan and see if I can train over there...

    Push Press
    160lbs x 5/2/2/1

    Deadlift
    340lbs x 5/2

    New strategy starting this cycle, I'll use less volume and try to make up for it with intensity, also as I stated before I'll be upping my frequency...
