    i recently started doing all negative training due to the fact that i have been reading too many articles by arthur jones. they are working very well. all negatives are 8-12 seconds down.

    friday: chest and shoulders

    chest:
    flat bb bench: -4@185
    peck deck fly: -4@270

    shoulders:
    standing military press: 3@100, 4@90 + two cheat reps at the end
    shoulder press machine: -3@180

    sleep 7 hours 45 min.

    today was sunday, leg day!!!

    leg press: -5@630
    leg curl: -4@135
    squat: 27@102
    standing calf raise: very intense drop set

    i ate good today and consumed 1 L of water after my post workout shake

    **this was the best, most intense workout ever, i am sore already and i just got home. it was the closest i ever came to puking in the gym. i fell down in the middle of the gym and had to stay there for 5 min.**

    thursday, 22/01

    today was back day

    weighted chins: 6@60, 4@60 (slow negative on last rep of both sets) this dosen't seem right

    dumbell rows: -5@85 (tried new technique. partner would help me for the positive part then would pull down on the db and i would try to pull it back up. it was very hard and i think it worked well)

    sleep: 8 hours, i didn't eat well today but there's still time to make it a bit better

    **workout was good, still can't do deads because of back injury but its getting better and i might start back light next week.**

    thursday, march 8/01

    today was pull day and it sucked

    deadlift: this was the first time i did deads in 3 months because of an injury. well my form was terrible. my traps have gotten weak so my upper back was rounding really bad and my lower back is out of shape so i did. 7@165 and coulden do anymore because my form was too bad

    chinups: 7@25, 6@25 this is worse than last time
    dumbell rows: 9@75

    sleep: 8 hours

    **this was the worst workout of my life. i had a bad sleep, i was ****ed off all day, my diet was terrible, and my workout was horrible. my next one better be really good to make up for this horrible workout**

    today was march break workout #1... holy ****

    i did a workout based on the workout that ian duckett did in his aritcle on the site. it was hell. it went like this:

    squat: 20@95
    leg extention: 5@75 with 4 negatives at the end. total failure
    squat: 15@95 (failure)
    flat bench: 6@135 (super slow reps with 3 negatives at the end)
    chins: 4
    dips: 4 with like 8-10 negatives at the end
    machine shoulder press: 1@90 with 3 negatives
    squat: 6@95 (this was supposed to be leg press but some woman invaded, and took over the leg press machine)

    thats it. no rest between sets. all sets except the first 20 rep squat were to failure.

    sleep: 7 hours. diet really good. so far this march break i have been eating a lot. i love it.

    **workout was hell. i wanted to shoot myself in the face. i almost puked and i had to lay on the floor for 5 min and then i managed to make it to the incline bench where i stayed for the next 20 min.**
