aha thanks DNG, it's just my bench that's getting on my nerves as of late but I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually....

Post workout meal for the day. 2 Beef Burgers, chips (fries) and half a litre of orange juice. I didn't manage to eat all of the chips but I still got a good 1100kcal out of the meal....

x2 Those squat numbers are very impressive to say the least. Just under 2x BW. Great job.

And I wish I could eat like you do. :(

I had some stomach issue last night for some unknown reason so I only managed 3600kcal in the end, then to top it off I woke up with a 2 hour migraine this morning :-\ It seems to have gone now aside from a mild headache, so I'm just going to suck it up, eat and then head to the gym.

Hopefully it won't affect my workout too much, but we'll see. I'm glad the squats will be lighter today.....

Can't imagine what the migrain is like, sorry to hear. Go in and do what you can.

Thanks, I haven't had one for a while but they are horrible, it feels like a really achey pain in one side of your eye and it just makes you feel sick.

But enough of me moaning  :nopity: on to the workout :)

18/3/14
Workout B
Squat 3x5 102.5kg/226lb
OHP 3x5 52.5kg/116lb PR  :banana:
Power Clean (messing with technique) 50-60kg/110lb-132lb

I reset -10% on my squats so they felt nice and smooth in this workout. I didn't think I had much of a chance at a PR on OHP because of  the headache and lack of food. BUT I was happily wrong :)

I managed to get all my sets with 52.5kg/116lb on OHP so I'll be going up to 55kg/121lb next workout, can't wait to get to 60kg/132lb! Although, I think I'm at least a month or two away from that yet but that will be a big milestone for me.

On the power cleans I was messing around with my technique a bit. I'm going to go down to 55kg/121lb next workout on this lift and progress from there.

20/3/13
Workout A
Squat 3x5 105kg/231lb
Bench 3x5 70kg/154lb (1x5 2x4)
Deadlift 1x5 120kg/264lb (-10% reset)

The left side of my knee was hurting a bit today while I was warming up for squats. It did stop hurting once I got to my working sets but I need to be a bit mindful of that I think. I'll just do some mobility work for it and hopefully that doesn't happen next workout. I got all my squat reps/sets though.

As for my bench it's still not moving, I'm thinking about changing to 3x3 on my bench for a month or two just to help break me through this wall because I've been stuck around 70-72.5kg/154-160 for months now! and my OHP is going up so I don't know why this isn't?

I did a reset on my deadlift's in this session because I was feeling really tired, which is probably due to the low calories the last few days from all the migraines I had. However, 120kg/264 went up really easily which I was happy about.
