Good work having the (balls) to go for the 60s again.

 :o

Lol! Thanks DNG, it was just a technique issue but I got through it in the end :)

Damn, I'm cutting and sitting at around 154 lbs right now. I am eating around 1880 calories daily. There is no way I could eat double that let alone 4300 calories. What is your Macro breakdown?

I don't have set numbers but usually I aim for around 400-450 Carbs, 170-200g Fats and 100-140g Protein. Generally as long as I get at least 400g of carbs and 100g of protein, I just fill everything else with fat. Just because it's easy to get plenty of calories from...

It does mean you get to eat whatever you want though. For example today I had....

Museli + Whole Milk

Chicken Wings + Chips + more Milk

and I'm about to eat a 1200kcal pizza with some juice :)

And I've still got another 800kcal to eat after that lol  :o

Ok, that explains a lot. I'm shooting for about 65g fat and 140g carbs. I could probably eat 2 large pizzas throughout the day so I guess I could eat that much. lol

29/2/14
Workout A
Squat 3x5 105kg (231lb)
Bench 3x5 72.5kg (160lb) - ended up with 3x4
Deadlift 1x5 130kg (286lb) PR

Pretty good day. Squats went up well and I managed to hit a PR on my deadlift :) I didn't get all the reps I wanted on bench but I still did better than the last session (where I only got 1x4 and 1x2 with 72.5kg)....

My uni's gym is closed next week for maintenance so I'll be going to the other gym in my area. It's a commercial gym and it's not very good for weightlifting but it has one squat rack so I should be able to manage for a week before my regular gym opens again...

My bodyweight is up to 133.8lb now so I've gained about 2 pounds this month which I'm happy about.

For the record this was my food for yesterday, in case anyone's interested. I only managed 4000kcal in the end but here it is.....


Breakfast -
Bacon and Egg Sandwich with Juice (only managed to eat 3/4 but I still got 674kcal out of it)


Lunch -
BBQ Ribs + Milk for some reason the ribs didn't agree with my stomach though :/


Snack -
Serious Mass Shake


Dinner
Pasta Salad + Milk


2nd Dinner
Rice + Mixed Vegetables + Olive Oil + Serious Mass Shake


When I get the money I want to buy a blender and make my own weight gain shake, just because the Serious Mass stuff tastes pretty bad...

4/3/14
Workout B
Squat 3x5 107.5kg
OHP 3x5 52.5kg (1x5 2x4 PR)
Chinups 1x20 1x10

No power cleans today, since I'm at a different gym for the week and this gym doesn't have bumper plates or protected flooring. It's only for this week though so I'll be back at them once my uni gym opens up again (they are doing maintenance on the weightlifting section atm, which is why it's closed for the time being).

Squats felt nice and smooth, no problems there. OHP was pretty tough but I still hit a small PR (an extra 2 reps from last session). It's time to reset on OHP but I should be able to get 52.5kg for 3x5 next time around!

It was weird I could still do a good amount of chin ups since I haven't done them in months and the only back work I really do comes from deadlifts and power cleans. They aren't as fun as power cleans, but as I say it's only for a week.

My deadlift should be interesting on Thursday though, because the last time I was at this gym I got told off for deadlifting too loudly :S It's a commercial gym so they don't really have a lot of people who do deadlift's there.....

There are a couple guys at my gym that actually do this. They must think it's cool to drop the bar about 2" off the ground. The girl who runs the place always has to yell at them.

Aha yeah the stupid thing was I've never done that at this gym because I know they don't have bumper plates, I was just putting the weight down normally and still got told off :S Hopefully I don't get that on Thursday...

a couple folded up sweat towels under the plates will quiet things down pretty well  ;)

What kind of flooring to they have in that gym?  Every gym I've been in had rubber tiles.  Mine also has extra rubber mats that a lot of folks through under for deadlifts.  I don't use them because it raises the bar 1/4".  I guess I could stand on a rubber mat too though.

It's rubber flooring, it's only for the week anyway luckily. My workout went fine today though, I had no problems, still I'll be glad to get back to regular gym :)

6/3/14
Workout A
Squat 3x5 110kg/242lb
Bench 3x5 65kg/143lb
Deadlift 1x5 132.5kg/292lb (1x2)

Squats moved well. They were pretty tough but I felt like I had at least 1 or 2 more reps in me on each set which was good.

As for my bench press, I did a reset today so the weight wasn't a problem but the benches at this gym are pretty high off the ground and me being a short guy, I couldn't really plant my feet properly. In the end I just put two 5kg plates under my feet, which helped but my set up wasn't quite as tight as it usually is because of that.

For my deadlift I only got 2 reps with 132.5kg/292lb, due to the fact I was having to do the negative REALLY slowly because this gym doesn't have bumper plates or lifting platforms. I usually don't really do a negative on deadlift's I just let gravity push the weight down so I'm not really used to having to control it but I've only got one more session in this gym and then my regular gym opens again so I can get back to normal then. I think if I didn't have to lower the weight so slowly today I could have gotten at least 4 or 5 reps but oh well.

I'll be up to 112.5kg again on my squat next workout which I'm looking forward to. So I should be able to set a squat PR next workout if I can get all 3x5. I'll try to film it too.....

Good lifts. I bet you'll be real happy to be back at the old gym next week.
