  1. Still doing all my workouts with a buddy. But now I'm gone and hurt myself, lower back muscle is super tightened. That's what it feels like at least, can't bend it forward. Which pretty much means I can't really squat, and deadlifts I haven't tried. Goddamnit.
  2. I learned just by watching a few trusted videos and other sources online. After you get the general idea of things like "straight back, lift with your butt and drive through the heels" etc it feels natural. The risk of injury is fairly low with lighter weights, you can learn form and technique with an unloaded bar first. Of course, anything becomes easier with a bit of support to drive you through.
  3. Mentally blocked? My, that doesn't sound good at all!
  4. Today was a good day, one of my friends decided to join me. Taught him what I know about diet, form (straight back basically), the works. Squat: 5 x 5 @ 80kg Bench: 2 x 5 @ 80kg, 1 x 3 @ 80, 2 x 5 @ 70kg Rows: 2 x 5 @ 60, form and technique abandoned me after that, won't even count them. I really need to improve my row technique and form, but at least I hit BW on bench and squats.
  5. Well, it's sorta gone now. By sorta I mean I threw it in an unused corner of the garden to decompose. Maggots and stuff still around, but hopefully the smell should go.
  6. Stench of death and maggots was too repellent for me to do a workout near, yuck. Had to move the bloody thing too, rotted open. Managed to do some Deadlifts. Deadlifts: 1 x 5 @ 90kg THe rest of my gear is too close to the smell and quite hard to move for me to use.
  7. Forgot about that, my old sig used to have the stats. Right now I am 80kg and 5'11" (178cm). And it should be known I've just woke up since I fell asleep after posting that workout. Fourteen hours of sleep, never again.
  8. MONDAY I TOTALLY forgot about Monday's workout, good thing I've got a hard copy in my little black book to write down. Oh, and just to clarify, the ? x ? is sets x reps. Sets first. Squat: 5 x 5 @ 77.5kg Deadlift: 1 x 3, 1 x 1 @ 90kg Overhead Press: 3 x 3 @ 60kg TODAY I pulled a bit of an all-nighter, so all I want to do is sleep right now. But I managed to get in a pretty good workout, even if everything was trying to persuade me otherwise. I have my homemade power rack sort of thing outside, under a little shed. And of course, a stray cat decides to go ahead and die a few meters away from my gear. So now I'm got a decomposing cat and all the flies and stenches it brings to put up with. I'll have to get rid of it tomorrow, yuck. Anyway, dropped 10kg this workout to not overtax my tired body. Squat: 5 x 5 @ 70kg Bench Press: 5 x 5 @ 70kg Rows: 5 x 5 @ 50kg I would have hit a bodyweight (80kg currently) squat and bench today if I didn't tone it down. I'm confident I can do bodyweight in them already. Apart from the whole "corpse" thing, this was a satisfying workout.
  9. Ugh, why oh why did I do an all-nighter? Bad idea, I'm so tired and slow! Gotta do a workout though, can't break so easily!

  10. Dropped pullups from workouts. Now I'm working on heavy weighted pullups greasing the groove style, just found my current max is about 25-30kg. Squats are now part of every workout, and rows are on bench days now. Here's today: Squat- 5 x 5 @ 75kg Bench Press- 5 x 5 @ 75kg Row: 3 x 5 @ 65kg Just kinda quit after the third set of rows, still working on that aspect. The bench felt off, and I couldn't understand why. Turns out the bench was slightly too far beyond the rack, making me press from lower down my chest. Going to fix that tomorrow.
  11. I always forget about the time differences on here. Anyway, sounds good and have fun at the gym.
  12. You've probably already done your workout, but depending on how you feel the day after it should give you an indication of how hard you can go and what you can do in future.
  13. What ever you do, don't try to do everything we have said to. Don't burn yourself out and you'll be fine.
  14. Good to see Waldo still doing his thing.
