Ok here it is. I decided to start a log. Let's see if I can keep this active. At least I promise to try.

Intro:

- Started training somewhere around 2002 when I was in army
- Back then my weight was about 85 kg's (now it's 108 kg)
- I'm about 188 cm tall (something like 6'1"-6'2")
- I've had problems with my lower back (way before I started training with weights) so it affects to my training but nowadays I know how to keep it secured and I won't do anything that feels bad in my lower back. For example when training legs I have to be very careful.

I will mark my training like this: 2x10x500 kg (2 is the number of sets, 10 is the number of reps and 500 is the amount of weight). > is a drop set. Units will be in kilograms.

This is my split ATM:

1. Chest, shoulders
2. Legs
3. Back
4. Arms

Calves at least twice a week and abs also twice a week. I also usually add lil' some something to those days depending how I feel. For example I may do some delts also at back day. You'll see.

Feel free to ask if you have something on your mind!

Here's something that I have done this week:

Monday July 28th - Chest, delts

Bench press BB: 2x3x140 kg. Getting back to bench press again. I did incline bench press for a long time.

Incline hammer strength: 8x80, 8x110 > 6x80 kg

Side lateral raise: 4x10x16 kg

Standing calf raise: 4x15x120 kg

Upright row BB: 3x15x40 kg

Cable curl for biceps: 3 sets just for pump.

-----

Tuesday July 29th - Legs, abs

Front squat: 2x3x110, 2x3x90 kg

Reverse hyper: 3 sets

Hack (leverage): 10x6x40 kg. Damn this was sick because my rest time was only like 30 seconds between sets.

At the end I did some abs (I don't even know what's the name of this exercise in English but that's not important).

-----

Friday August 1st - Arms. This was basically a workout when I really concentrated to feel the tension in my arms and didn't go that heavy.

Preacher curl: 5x10

Pushdown (rope): 5x10

Lying triceps extension (with girya): 3x10 This was kinda funny. It was the first time I did this with girya.

Bicep curl DB: 2x10

Standing calf raise: 3x10

Side lateral raise DB: 3x15

That's it. I'm going to hit back tomorrow morning so keep tuned fellas!!

Thanks guys.

Like I said...I like to stir things up a bit once in a while. It means that I might do some calves at chest day. Or few sets of side laterals at back day or something like that. But the basis is what I told before.

Okey dokey.

First training session today was about 20 kilometers of cycling. My quads are so sore.

After that I went to the gym.

Saturday August 2nd - Back

Front pulldown: 5x6x110 kg. Easy.

One arm hammer row machine: 6x50, 2x6x60 kg

Pek back (rear delts): 3x10

Rear pulldown: 3x10. Just for the pump. Good contraction.

Side laterals: 3x10. Side delts can't never be too big. :D

Short but solid session today. That cycling took all of my energy.

Sunday August 3rd - Recovering workout

Today I went to gym and I did this very light whole body workout. No heavy weights just pumping the muscle to get some blood flowin'.

I also did some cardio and foam rolling. Foam rolling is very good to recover you muscles. I suggest it to everyone!

Updates? Here it comes...

Monday August 4th - Chest, shoulders

Bench press BB: 2x3x140 kg. Getting used to it. Next time maybe some serious shit 'cause this was eaaaasy.

Incline hammer chest press: 6x110, 8x130, 10x80 kg. Oops, I accidentally made a new record here lol. Actually that was quite easy.

Side lateral raises (cable): 2x10, 2x15

Front lateral raises DB: 2x8x20 kg

Side lateral machine: 3x10

At the end I did few sets of abs.

This shit was intense even though my stomach did hurt quite a lot. I don't know why.

I forgot to say that I normally don't train to failure. Besides I leave maybe one rep in store.
