    22/1 Deadliftin' Warm up: 1x5 60kg 1x5 70kg 1x5 80kg Main: 1x5 100kg 1x3 115kg 1x3 130kg - Straps. It's amazing how good this felt when I'm not constantly trying to fix my destroyed hands mid set... BBB - Front Squat: 3x10 40kg - I dropped the weight and dropped 2 sets because I was exhausted from the pulling. I want to make sure I'm not too fried for the rest of max week.. I really want to push myself for the squats at the end of the week, and I know this took a fair bit out of me. Accessories: Bent over Row 3x10 40/45/50kg Lat pulldown 5x10 60/80/100/120/60 Seated row 3x10 Cardio: 1km run Tabata ropes 10 minute walk

    18/1 Squat Warm up: 1x5 50kg 1x5 60kg 1x5 75kg Main: 1x3 85kg 1x3 95kg 1x3 110kg BBB Deadlift 5x10 75kg Accessories Leg curl: 5x10 Hamstring curl 3x10 Cardio: 1.6km run (1mi) Tabata ropes 10 minute walk I just don't feel comfortable with the damn squats over 100kg. I can do 5x5 for 95 all day every day, but the second i add a few more kg i can't manage to get more than 3 per set. I'm thinking it's just getting comfortable with the weight on my shoulders, so I might have to add in some 3x3 3x5 5x5 progression in my routine at 100+ just to get the practice in. Hopefully from there I can start progressing the weight a bit heavier again. I've lost 12kg now and my lifts have all gone up so I'm aware that I'm trying to stretch myself a bit thin, but I really want to keep pushing higher. Desperate for a PR at the moment, it's been a while so I'm starting to get annoyed with everything. Tonight is shoulders. I want them boulder shoulders...

    15/1 Deadlift Warm up: 1x5 60kg 1x5 70kg 1x3 80kg Main: 1x3 95kg 1x3 110kg 1x3 120kg BBB front squat 3x10 40kg 1x10 60kg 1x9 (I can't count) 60kg Accessories: Pull ups: 3,2,1 (YUSSSSS!) Lat pulldown: 3x10 80/100/120 Seated Rows: 3x10 140 Cardio: 1km run Tabata ropes I was going to do more accessories, but my rest times between deadlifts were YUGE and I didn't realise how much time was going by. Skipped one arm rows and bent over rows. I might superset bent over rows with my bench tonight and see how I go. That should be a horrible time! Aside from that, tonight felt stronger than I've felt deadlifting in a long time! Grip was good and the lifts seemed to be going up fairly quickly.

    Hey all So after a fair amount of lurking the forum I've decided to try and keep up a log. So, I'm 31. Weigh 106kg and am looking to drop fat while maintaining (building if I'm extremely lucky) muscle. I have no idea of bodyfat % but I'll see how I go with posting and may throw up some progress shots. I'm sure someone will have a much better idea than I do. The backstory is I haven't lifted for 5-6 years, but when I did I was damn strong. Unless anyone is curious I don't think the numbers are that important, and besides that, they just make me sad to look at now. Current Program: 5/3/1 BBB Current Lifts (Haven't truly tested my 1RM): Squat: 95kg 130kg 135kg Deadlift: 110kg 140kg 150kg Bench: 75kg 95kg OH Press: 55kg 62.5kg 65kg Diet (As of 18/9/17) Ketogenic 2000-2200cals < 50g Carbs a day Goals: Drop 10kg by end of the year (ish. This can happen much sooner, or on the date. First goal is to weigh less than 100kg Feel free to drop a line and let me know what I'm doing wrong, or suggestions and such. I'm going to try and get in all my workouts and the odd random thought, rant about whatever I'm watching on TV, meme. We'll see how things go.
