    The Loughborough Files

    I just started university at a big sports uni called loughborough (in the UK), which happens to have an amazing gym, so I thought it'd be about time I started another journal.

    I got this routine from the fortifiediron boards in the recent article on hypertrophy. This will be a short cycle, just until christmas. Then I mght introduce some rep range changes and things like that.

    Routine:
    Monday & Thursday
    Squats 3x8-10
    Leg curls 2x8-10
    Rows or Pulldn 3x8-10
    Shrugs 3x8-10
    Curls 2x8-10

    Tuesday & Friday
    Dips/Bench press 3x8-10
    OHP/Military press 3x8-10
    Triceps 2x8-10
    Calves 3x12-15
    Abs 3x12-15

    Week: 1 Workout: 1

    Yeah i'm trying to get diet in order, pretty hard with set meal times and late nights; always end up missing breakfast. Its got a really awesome gym. Dumbells up to 60kg, lots of squat racks, lots of olympic lifting stations etc. I'm not doing a sport related course at loughborough, i'm doing engineering stuff, but i'm aiming to improve myself physically as well as educationally. 5 years at loughborough should do the trick I think
