Welcome to my lifting/training journal.

I generally train 5 days a week and update daily with details of my lifting sessions.

I train primarily for powerlifting but with a lean towards bodybuilding.

Some might call be a 'powerbuilder'.

I try to reply to all questions and comments, so don't be shy; post away.


Hatebreed - Perseverance




 I know your fear of loss
 And your struggles with faith
 And how it takes everything that you have to face the day
 The virtues you possess now bring you eternal pain
 All you have is contempt for a life you can't obtain
 All your heroes have failed you
 Yet you try and prevail
 Face your torment and dismantle your doubt
 Refuse this legacy of shame and deceit
 Cause the only real truth in your life that you know is hostility

 Your world is coming apart
 Remain steadfast

 Perseverance
 Against all opposition
 Crushing all limitations
 Pure strength through solitude
 Discipline and determination


 You can't accept what you've been told
 Anchored in sin you must reverse your descent
 Declare the weight of the world has yet to claim you
 And admit that your faults will not restrain you
 Glimpses of fate bring light to your despair
 Realise hope isn't short of your grasp
 Resurrect every dream that you've buried alive
 And never succumb to the war that you fight in your heart

 Your world is coming apart
 Remain steadfast

 Perseverance
 Against all opposition
 Crushing all limitations
 Pure strength through solitude
 Discipline and determination

Dam you do a lot of sets Flex. I thought I was doing a lot by doing sets of 4. Only time I do warm ups is on the first exercise of the night, I stretch out and ride a bike for 5 or 10 minutes also. Leg day I spend quite a bit more time stretching though.
I am my own hero.

Chest & Biceps

Not a bad start to the week. 

Gym was quite busy this morning so I ended up doing barbell presses again because there was nothing else available.  No pain, which was good, but the strength kinda sucked.  Lisa was elsewhere so I had no spotter; didn't push things too much.

185 x 10

205 x 6

Had some time left so I messed around on one of the Hammer Strength machines:  MTS Decline Press; 4 sets of 10.

That's it.

Squats tomorrow.

Happy Monday.  :)

Thanks Guys.

The bench work wasn't too great....

But....  I got some berstares doing those curls with the 110lb bar. 

That's as heavy as the fixed bars go, and my form was damn near perfect and I brought the bar right up to my chin on every rep.

People were mirin.   :)
