El Freako's Dating Thread

Hey people, I'm a longtime lurker but minimal poster. I think this might be my 3rd attempt at keeping a log so wish me luck this time. :xyxthumbs:

Some stats on me:
26 years old, 5'7, 81kg. I've been lifting since I was 15 but have only been taking it really, really seriously for the past 3. I've been bulked up to 90kg before (approx. 14% bf) but I've been a bit sick since relocating from Australia to London and have lost a lot of weight.

I'm aiming for some lean muscles gains as I'm not aiming for a comp or anything. Another 5kgs would be nice. I'm also trying to get my strength back up to where it was a few months ago. I haven't got a real program set out yet but I should have that sorted soon once I get a good training rhythm going with my new job.

Anyhoo, here's today:
CHEST AND TRIS

I just had a look back at my old logs from over a year ago and its a bit depressing. I've lost quite a lot of strength while I've been travelling and having been bedridden with the flu twice hasn't helped either.

Tomorrow is legs... I'm not really looking forward to it but it has to be done.

Nice to see a new log - got some strong lifts here buddy! IMO you do a bit too many exercises per bodypart - esp tris, but looks good otherwise.

I do enjoy throwing in a few extra exercises in sometimes if time permits. 2 years ago I was taking on average about 2hrs per session and that was 1 bodypart per session, 2 sessions per day. Legs took 3 hrs and I was usually close to puking after. It served me well though, 10kg in 12 months (including a few breaks due to illness). There are certainly benefits from working in a gym.

Skipped my legs session today, will be doing an extra big legs/shoulders tomorrow. Pray for me. :crymeariver:

I was doing 160-180kg just a few months ago until I had some knee troubles...:crymeariver:

I haven't decided whether its chest/tris or back/ bis today. I normally start the week with chest but I was thinking of trying something different today.
