    I know you're a very form-conscious person, but if you go heavy on those be careful. I tweaked my back pretty good doing these carelessly. Good job on the PB

    Free stuff! Thats awesome :hyperguy:.

    Standing Smith Machine calf shrugs eh? I've never done them before, i'll give them a go next session. Whats the benifit of doing them this way over doing them on a calf raise machine btw Tweak? (if any at all).

    everybody that stopped by, thanks a lot. I still have to get around to everybody's log, sorry I haven't been around as of late

    Base - the standing calve raise machine at my gym (as most are) is made for midgets so I prefer the smith machine


    Anyway, I did a leg session yesterday with Paul (he joined the same gym as I now ) but it's nothing special, so I won't bother to post it

    Tonights Session - Fullbody exclude Legs

    Time: 8:40pm
    Weight: 158lbs (I fluctuate from 156-166 daily) some may understand

    Bench Press - getting stronger by the week
    Rotator Cuff Warmups
    45x10
    135x6

    195x2
    195x2
    195x2
    195x2
    195x2
    180x4
    180x4
    180x3 - knackered

    Chinups
    Me+25 x8
    Me+35 x8
    Me+35 x8
    Me+35 x8

    Front Raises - 2nd set was done after my "Up/Down, and back up the rack" just for the hell of it
    30x10
    20x10

    Side Laterals "Up, Down, and Back Up The Rack" - Paul brought up the fact that he rarely does drop sets anymore, so I figured lets do something intense

    This is all one set
    10x12
    15x10
    20x8
    25x6
    20x8
    15x10
    10x12

    ^ could barely lift my arms after that massacre

    BB Shrugs - light weight, close grip, lots of reps
    135x20
    185x20
    185x25

    Forearms - feel the burn
    - Behind Back Wrist Curls supersetted with Static Holds
    - 65x30 supersetted w/ 75lbs for 20 seconds
    - 65x30 supersetted w/ 75lbs for 20 seconds

    Static Holds Alone
    75lbs for 30 seconds

    Abs
    1 Set Decline Crunches (20 reps)
    2 Sets Pulley Crunches
    - 60x12
    - 70x12


    Aftermath: Considering I fluctuate from 156-166, and most of the time I weigh 158-162, I'd say my strength isn't too shabby if I do say so myself (benching 195 plenty over my bodyweight )Especially considering I'm not gaining any weight, but continue getting stronger
    I honestly thought I'd put on a few pounds from the Creatine, but it has only been a week since I officially started, so we'll see how that goes. In all honestly at this moment I don't care about putting on a ton of weight, I just want to get as strong as possible before I plan on putting on weight on purpose


    The biggest difference between you and me is you're you, and I'm me. I always win. Sorry bro.

    Nice workout, bench keeps getting better and better, I have a hard time putting on weight too, but like u said its awesome to be light and lift impressive weights, pound for pound its very hard for any one to match u, Strength i believe coms alot from the heart, some cant gain size like others( i think im under that category), but to be able to gain strength like u have, shows u have serious determination.

    yeah great workout tweak, getting stronger from week to week thats awesome man, the chins are superb, the bench press is good too and i love those side laterals, repped for an awesome session bud


    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate;
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Bench is strong indeed sir.

    Your chins shame mine these days. Git.

    Nice drop sets and supplementary work to finish with.

    Aftermath: Extremely pleased with how well my bench has been progressing. Last week I was struggling with sets of 4, this week I'm doing sets of 5. I haven't improved this well in terms of strength since I was 13% + bodyfat so needless to say I'm stoked. Especially for weighing 160lbs


    The biggest difference between you and me is you're you, and I'm me. I always win. Sorry bro.

    overall awesome workout brother......i see that bench press increasing brother!!! keep up the hard work and i wanna see another improvement next workout session

    Another improvement on bench - and then straight into close grip. Good.

    Chins whilst not to your usual weight adding standard are still respectable.

    Calf sets are mighty in number.
