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


Yep, that's just about all I'd be able to eat for the day. lmao

A PR is a PR, congrats.

Enjoy that meal. that's more than what I eat for the day.  :'(

Thanks! I would give you about 1500 of my calories to only eat about 2500kcal a day aha ;D

If I ate 4000 calories a day I'd be as wide as I am tall. :)

Lol!

13/3/14
Workout B
Squat 3x5 115kg/254lb (1x5 2x4 PR)
OHP 3x5 50kg/110lb
Power Clean 5x3 60kg/132lb (1x3 2x2 1x1) + (Some extra practice with 50kg/110lb 2x3)

Pretty good workout, I was hoping to hit 3x5 on my squats with 115kg/254lb but it didn't happen today, I'm still one rep up from what I got last session though so at least I still made some progress. One more attempt at this weight before I have reset so hopefully I'll get it.

OHP felt really strong in this workout. It's funny how sometimes certain lifts just feel really solid and tight and other days they can be really difficult because 47.5kg felt pretty difficult last session but 50kg felt really good today. I was trying to focus more on squeezing my glutes throughout my sets on this lift to make sure I stayed tight.

As for power cleans I'm still practicing being consistent with my technique and it's been a week since I've done them properly so I was just messing around with my technique a bit today. Still it wasn't too bad....

I agree with everyone else.  That's some heavy iron at your weight class.  Keep up the great work!

Thanks everyone! On the subject of videos, do any of you guys know how to embed a video on these forums? I tried the whole [youtube][/youtube] thing on my last squat vid of 112.5kg but I couldn't get it to work  :-\

You don't need the youtube tags here. Just put the address between the url tags. If there is an https just drop the 's'

If you don't know, the button is this one.

15/3/14
Workout A
Squat 3x5 115kg/253lb (2x5 1x4 pr)
Bench 3x5 70kg/154lb (3x4 wtf?)
Deadlift 1x5 132.5kg/292lb (1x3?)

Squat 115kg/253lb 5 reps


Not that great of a workout today.
Firstly squats were really tough! Looking back at the video I was going WAY lower than I needed to which I think is one of the reasons I didn't get all the reps in this workout. I cut the depth a bit on my 2nd set which made things a bit easier, you hear most people have a problem with hitting depth and I have the opposite problem I tend to go too low  ::) I'm still 1 rep up from the last time I squatted this though so I guess it's still a PR. Next workout I'll be resetting to 102.5kg/226lb on this lift.

I'm not sure what's going on with my bench, my form didn't feel as solid in this session but I'm gaining weight so my bench should be going up but it's just been stuck around 70-72.5kg/154-159lb for the past few months. I'm not really sure what to do on this lift, my OHP is still progressing so I don't know what's going on  :o

As for my deadlift I only got 3 reps (which is one rep less than last time) but I think it was just fatigue from how heavy the squats were today so I'm sure that will be better the next time around.

Still I guess bad workouts happen, I still hit a minor PR on squats so I guess I can't be too unhappy  :)

61 kilo BW

Nearly 2.5 X BW squatting 1rm and it was an OK workout.


Holy FUCK.

Great work man. And your fucking red over that other place. Shows how much some people there are total wankers. No rep button here but a deserved rep for that PR mate.
