    these are my workouts over the last 2 months, decided to post them cos i think my gains have been ok, throughout my workouts i focus solely on form and on pumping the muscle itself, not on increasing weight/reps. i find if i concentrate more on incresing weight/reps i lose form.

    legend is : exercise - weight x reps, weight x reps, weight x reps
