God, I still suck at keeping this log up to date. On the bright side, I'm still going to the gym.
So this last month or so has been .. eh. Well, in terms of workouts, it's been fine. I didn't quite hit my 200 kg deadlift, however, due to illness. And partying. A lot of partying.
I went a bit crazy, and I've decided to cut down on the partying a good deal. It's probably hurting my progress, and it's definitely hurting my wallet.
Workout A -- heavy week
1 x 8 x 70 kg
1 x 4 x 120 kg
1 x 4 x 170 kg
1 x 6 x 36 kg
3 x 4 x 50 kg(No problem whatsoever, lovin' it)
Pullups -- Yes, I can do these now :D
3 sets to failure. It was bout 5-4-4 reps, or so. That's after a heavy deadlift and heavy rows.
1 x 4 x 22.5 kg -- felt light, went up
1 x 4 x 25 kg -- felt like I could do heavier
1 x 4 x 27.5 kg -- possibly 30 kg next time.
After a month of some illness, too much partying and so on, I just decided to leave the deadlift there for now. That's still the 2nd or 3rd heavy workout I've done 170kg, so.. yeah. Less partying.
The biceps.. well. My form was probably too strict before. With only a tiny bit of momentum, I could do the 27.5kgs without a problem. Slow, controlled eccentric.
Workout B -- heavy week
BB Bench Press
1 x 10 x 20 kg(bar)
1 x 4 x 50 kg
3 x 4 x 70 kg
DB Incline bench press
1 x 4 x 25 kg
2 x 4 x 27.5 kg
DB Seated Shoulder Press
1 x 10 x 10 kg
1 x 4 x 20 kg
2 x 4 x 22.5 kg
Tricep cable pushdowns
3 x 4 x 35 ?(Unknown unit, thinking KG)
First heavy bench I've done since november 4th due to wrist injury. I can finally do BB BP without feeling pain. I'm looking forward to going somewhere with the bench.
Shoulders.. well. They're pathetic. However, I've been doing some half reps(initial half) where I understand shoulder activation is the most(e.g. triceps take over in the upper half of a rep) and it seems to have helped, as I didn't experience sudden fatigue in my shoulders and fail completely(with no hope of grinding) as I've experienced several times before. I really, really want a proper OHP. I should probably move to the bar again soon.
