  1. Alright, same weigh-in of 70.4kg this morning, same annoyingly early wake-up time. Had gym this morning for squats and I decided that I've been sacrificing volume for weight. So I stuck fairly light, 90kg, and did 5x5, went up pretty easy, next cycle I'll start at 95kg, follow the same method as other lifts. Followed with 4x8 deadlifts with 80kg, 4x8 leg press with 120kg, 4x8 hanging leg raises, and 4 planks of 70 seconds each which weren't too difficult. Also realised I've been kind of an idiot, as my house is just over a mile from the gym, running home provides decent cardio. With obstacles
  2. Okay gotta make this quick as I've only got 20 minutes. Woke up too early with a weigh-in of 70.4kg nice and high, then headed to lectures. Took some pre then headed to the gym. Workout went ridiculously great. Nailed 5x1 on bench with 75kg, pull-ups were smooth, assistance work went off without a hitch, ended with 10 minutes cardio. Showered, ate, studied a little, then work started. I've had a bit of a headache all shift, caught a housemates cold I think, nothing I can't brush off though. Gonna head home very soon, drink something hot, then go to bed as tomorrow's an early start also plus sq
  3. Tutorial this morning finished early so I came home instead of hanging around campus for 4 hours. I've got around 2 hours now before I have to head back so I'm gonna try to get all my revision done before then. As of now I have two textbook chapters to read and 2 notes to rewrite, shouldn't take too long but I might not get it all done before I leave. Plus I'll have another lectures notes to rewrite and chapter to read after my lecture at 4 today. Still, on the plus side there's a placement fair tomorrow meaning no lecture, so I don't have to worry about work piling up. Anyway, this morning's
  4. Up way too early with a weigh-in of 70.2kg, so it's shifting back down and if I had to guess I'd say I'll level out around 70kg, which ain't half bad. Had bfast and headed to a morning lecture, wound up round the friends house later than I was expecting, so the morning was a bit rushed. I had every intention of going to the gym for cardio before work but I'm knackered and decided not to. I really need to step up on my cardio a little as of late, I dunno if it's lectures or work or all the walking I have to do to get everywhere now, but I've not been giving cardio 100%. I have a friend who like
  5. Last night I went to an all you can eat Brazilian place, you fill up your plate with salad and whatnot, then sit down at your table as people come by and bring you freshly cooked meat. Essentially the way I see it is you load up on carbs then have seemingly infinite protein thrown at you, can't remember the name of it but it was awesome. Anyway, no surprise this mornings weigh-in was up a lot at 70.4kg, so just 100g under the halfway goal, but I'm expecting something of a drop by tomorrow morning, if not the next day. Got some studying done this morning but not a whole lot, tomorrow's a cardio
  6. Weigh-in of 69.1kg today, pretty low but I'm sure it'll shoot back up in no time. 2 hour biological lecture at 10 this morning so not too bad, pretty interesting stuff on motivation and addiction, suspiciously low on the biology side of things but I'm sure that'll begin to change in the coming weeks. Headed to the gym, got changed, took a little pre and headed up. Incidentally I've decided to only use pre-workouts on days where I'm working or have lectures before the gym; after work I'm a little knackered mostly from being up on my feet for hours, and after lectures I'm more mentally fried tha
  7. Weigh-in of 69.7kg, had some coffee before hitting up some squats. Built up to 110kg which sadly I was unable to make a third rep with, gonna have to work on squats a little better next cycle. Deadlifts with 70kg for 5 sets of 12 was no problem, as was leg press with 120kg for 5 sets of 10. Hanging leg raises for 5x8 went really well, as did 70 second planks. Came home and ate something of a cheat meal as it included ice cream and brownies, but ya know. Got a lecture at 4 so I'll finish what little revision I have left before then. Aside from that not much else to say, tomorrow's OHP day shoul
  8. Got a text from my manager this morning saying someone called in sick so long story short I had to come into work early. Still, woke up with a weigh-in of 69.7kg, not bad for a week into the month. Went to a morning lecture which was the biggest waste of time ever, 2 hours of introducing the lecturers, explaining what the module is about, makes me glad I left after hour 1. Got to the gym, took some preworkout, hit a bench day. Bench press was 72.5kg which I did for 3 sets of 3, second set was the quickest, third set I had a trigger-happy spotter who yanked the bar away half way up rep 3, but o
  9. Damn do I lack free time. This mornings weigh-in was 69.1kg so not awful, did some reading this morning, went to a stats workshop, 3 hour gap I spent in a cafe somewhat studying, then a social lecture to end at 6. Got home, had dinner, prepped tomorrow's food, and that is the monotony that was my day. Still, tomorrow I get to go to a morning lecture, then to the gym, followed by work, followed by bed. At least it's a bench day, though it's also a cardio day which is something I've really been slacking with lately, probably all this walking I've been doing. Okay, tomorrow I gotta really push fo
  10. It's late so I'mma make this quick. Woke up with a weigh-in of 69.3kg, had bfast an hour or so later, left for my first lecture at 10.30, it was advanced stats, basically a recap of last year, over in an hour. At just after 12 I left uni to head for the gym, had my preworkout and went up for deadlift day. Deadlift day went well, built up to a triple with 120kg. Unfortunately the squat rack was taken for the rest of my session, so I went to leg press for 5x8 with 120kg, after that as I couldn't do squats I fooled around a bit on the leg press machine, built up to a heavy single of 180kg, then d
  11. There was no post yesterday as I was somewhat sidetracked but I am back baby. Feeling pretty good just generally speaking, even with lectures kicking off tomorrow with advanced statistics and data analysis, plus a shift a little bit later. Had to move some stuff around and as a consequence tomorrow will be deadlifts instead of a rest day, because that's the obvious trade-off. Weighed in this morning at an even 69kg but I'm gonna stick with 69.3 as the starting point unless it remains lower. Got everybody moved in now, and I'm sure everybody's amped up to get back in a sweaty/freezing lecture h
  12. Okay, up at around 8 with a weigh-in of 69.3kg, nice and high net gain for September, gonna go on whichever is the highest out of today and tomorrow for a starting point of October. Nice that my sleep cycle has shifted forward somewhat, only difficulty will be that I need to get up early on Fridays for an early shift. Yesterday my hamstrings were real tight so I was expecting today's deadlifts to be pretty poor. I was mistaken. Built up to 115kg for a single set of 5, next week will be 120kg+ for a single set of 3, and I'll end the cycle with a single set single for 130kg+, all depends on how
  13. Alrighty, quiet day today, I'm not supposed to do any intense exercise prior to the health MOT I've got booked for 3, and I got roped into work for the evening shift tonight. Still, woke up this morning with a weigh-in of 69.8kg if I remember correctly, I'll see what tomorrow's weigh-in is before making it a starting point for the month. Quite a sizeable leap in weight this month, which is weird as calories haven't changed, I'll see how the first two weeks of the month go before considering changes. Still, approaching the halfway point of 70.5kg, so that's good. Looking forward to the health M
  14. Last night was a house-wide Dominos 2 for Tuesday night, I kept to eating exactly half (which with my appetite is restraint), so around maybe 1,000 calories, putting me just barely over my typical calories no problem. Weighed in at 69.4kg this morning, which I'm surprised isn't actually higher. Prepped preworkout and headed to the gym after bfast and antibiotics. Spoiler alert: fairly disappointing gym session, but not terrible. OHP was supposed to be sets of 5 with 47.5kg, got to 4 reps on set 1, 3 on set 2, then lowered the weigh to 42.5kg for 2 sets of 5. Likely it's just recovery from sick
  15. Woke up at like 8 with a weigh-in of 68.9kg. Ate and headed to the gym with no preworkout for a heavy squat day. Damn squats, I got to 105kg which was supposed to be for 5+ and yet only managed a single, failing on rep 2. I'm gonna put this down to just being due to not having gotten any squats in during the deload, deadlifts may also suffer too, though I did 5x10 for 70kg after squats. Then was leg press, 5x10 for 110kg, ending with some ab work which got cut short due to being in a rush. Got back, ate, showered, gotta leave for work in an hour. Awesome. Here's hoping next week's squats are a
