Those are some good numbers you're lifting there, especially at 133 lbs. body weight.  Nice work.

OHP 140 - 8/27/15
BP 245 - 4/7/17

Squat - ugh

9/3/14
Workout B
Squat 3x5 112.5kg/248lb PR
OHP 3x5 47.5kg/104lb (reset)
Power Clean (practice=hang cleans) worked up to a few singles with 60kg/132lb

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jh5r9gzJdh4&list=UUM9_FXVjnTKXh1Oi6j0RM3g (2nd set of squats)

Good workout today! I hit a PR on my my squat so I'll be moving up to 115kg in the next workout.

I did a -10% reset on my OHP so that wasn't too difficult, and I did a few sets of hang cleans just as practice before I start doing cleans again next week.

I've only been eating around 3700-4000kcal for this week so I'm surprised I've been gaining weight still! But I weighed in at 135lb this morning, which is 1 pound up from last week. Ideally I want to gain around 0.5lb a week so if I gain another pound next week I might ease back a bit on the calories but I'm happy I'm gaining weight again now :)

Today was the last workout in this gym so I'll be back in my regular gym from next week.

Great job on them squats!

Glad to hear you'll be back in a real gym again.  I'm slowly putting together my own gym at home so I can slam stuff and spread chalk all over the place with no one to yell at me except for the wife.  I just picked up 275 of Oly weights today.  I just need a bar, a rack, and a bench and I'll be all set.

Damn, That would be cool! Being able to blast out your own music and everything. I do like my regular gym though, it's just got a nice atmosphere to it and you get to know some cool lifters, from people who compete in powerlifting to oly lifting but I don't know many gym's like that around Britain unless I'm mistaken so I might go down the whole home gym route one day....

11/3/14
Workout A
Squat 3x5 115kg/254lb (1x5 1x4 1x3 PR)
Bench 3x5 67.5kg/148lb
Deadlift 1x5 132.5kg/292lb (1x4) PR
+ 1x1 an extra deadlift with 135kg/297lb (just for fun  8))

Tough workout today. 115kg is the most I've ever squatted so I was happy with the reps I got. I failed the last set on the 4th rep but I should do better in the next workout.

Bench was fine as usual nothing overly heavy.

As for deadlifts they were pretty tough. I got 4 reps out but I didn't attempt the 5th because I didn't think I had it. My friend thinks I probably could have done it but I wanted to make sure I kept good form. After that I was waiting for my mate to finish his sets because he was doing the same workout as me but with 5x5, deadlifting with 135kg/297lb so I was just just relaxing for like 20 minutes and then I just decided to go for a single with his working weight for a laugh before we left the gym. It went up fairly slow but it still went up which is technically a PR weight for me but only by 2.5kg and I was pretty tired after already doing 4 reps with 132.5kg.

Anyway, I'm about to eat a 2,018kcal meal  :o I'll try to post a picture a bit later for all the food lovers out there :P ....

Post workout 2018kcal meal (90g carbs/122g fat/125g protein) :P Most of the calories came from the chicken wings since there's about 700kcal in just 4 of them and I had about double that



Chicken Wings + Buttered Potatoes and a Strawberry Milkshake
