    Strengthbrah and Wiggium's Log

    Welcome to our log! We aim to update this as often as possible, and at certain intervals pics and videos will be provided!

    We are both 19 year old males from the UK. Seeing as we are almost 20 and aim to keep this log going for over a year we figured that it would be pointless posting this in the teen section. As we are from the UK, all weights will be in KG

    Strengthbrah Background info:

    -started lifting around march 2010
    -gained a lot of size and strength over the course of around 1.5 years
    -had to stop lifting due to certain circumstances for just over 1 year, subsequently losing a lot of size and strength
    -In the past week have started getting back to the gym to once again reach and surpass my previous records.

    1RM Records as of august 2011:

    Squat -145kg
    Bench - 100kg
    Deadlift - 192.5kg
    Military Press - 75kg

    1rm levels as of today:

    Squat - 90kg
    Bench - ~65kg
    Deadlift - 110kg
    Military press - 55kg

    The plan is to eat a fairly clean surplus for as long as it takes to reach my previous strength and get my size back. After that, I am not sure.


    our situation

    I work x2 a week, and usually get overtime for 2 more days. Saturday and wednesday are my contracted days, and both shifts stretch into the evening. The evening is when I like to work out, so therefore said days will not be gym days. Any other overtime I will attempt to get in the morning so as not to disrupt trainig.

    Wiggium is currently at university and is thus lifting and eating on a budget. His university is a long way from my place so understantably we will only train together when he is back home, such as now (xmas holidays). Other workouts will be done separately but both logged here.



    I hope you enjoy the log!

    Our Routine

    Our routine will potentially change throughout the duration of our log, but for now we are doing what I found worked really well for me before I stopped lifting. It is the routine which allowed me to gain the most size and strength quickly.

    There are no set days in which we must workout, but it is more to do with if we feel recovered as it is a fairly intense program. More often than not we will lift at least x3 a week.

    Apart from DB rows on day 2 because you can't really max rows, we will often max, or come very close to do a single max rep on each the big lifts at least once per month.

    Brief overview of Routine

    Day 1:

    Squats
    -warmups
    -working up to a max of 3-5

    DB incline
    -warmups
    -working up to a max of 4-8

    Dips
    2x~10 adding weight if needed

    Rope pushdowns
    2x~10

    Hanging leg Raises
    2x10

    Day 2
    Off

    Day 3

    DB Row
    -warmups
    -working to a max of 6-8

    Med Grip Lat Pulldown
    -warmups
    -working to a max of 6-8

    Cable Row
    -warmup
    -working up to a max of 6-8

    DB shrug
    -2x8

    Alternating DB curl
    -2x8

    Day 4
    Off

    Day 5

    Military Press
    -warmups
    -working up to a max of 3-5

    Deadlift
    -warmups
    -Working up to a max of 1-3

    DB side laterals
    2x8

    Hanging leg raise

    Notes:

    -been ill over xmas. Not a good way to start a log. Been sleeping around 15hrs a day past few days, to put it into perspective. Felt almost better today and looked pretty **** so decided not to waste anytime and get straight back into it.
    -strength did feel pretty bad, but still technically managed to pump out prs all round
    -going to eat a lot and potentially train tomorrow. If not tomorrow then sunday (as I have a long work shift on saturday). If I do train on sunday it will be alone as wiggium is unavailble

    hanging leg raise

    Notes
    -had about 2.4k cals the past 3 days or so, and have slept very little due to it being new years eve. Now that xmas/new years eve and all that stuff is out the way, from this point on, some serious gains in size and strength are anticipated.

    -Actually felt very weak on everything today because of the above, but just powered through it. Goes to show a lot of your strength is in your mind.

    -for those wondering why today is called 'day 3' when this clearly isn't the 3rd day since beginning the program, the 'days' work on the basis that usually there will be 3 workouts per week. Or should I say, there are 3 different days per week with different lifts. So the days don't necessarily correlate with the days of the week but actually the different workouts. Therefore, the next session will be titled 'day 1 week 2'. As it is the 4th workout when taking into account that there would ideally be 3 in a week.

    Notes:

    -Fairly decent day today strength is slowly coming back
    -Decided to do barbell bench because haven't worked chest in ages due to missing some sessions around new years. This means that most likely next session (probably monday) will only be squats and abs and maybe a leg accessory
    -Was expecting more on bb bench due to fairly decent db incline, but put it down to the fact it is simply a different exercise with different mechanics.
    -Was wiggium's last session before heading back off to uni so from now on, we will train seperately

    -Also did bb bench for the same reason, haven't done bb bench in a very long time so easily set a PR.
    -Struggled to hold the DB while doing heavier weights on shrugs, need to get my grip up.
    -My last workout before heading back to university, hopefully the gym near university matches up (not sure if it has a squat rack or not)

    Notes:
    -managed to crank out the 100kg on squats, going atg as usual. I am aiming to stick with this weight for the next few squat days and go for more reps. will advance when i can comfortably get 5 out of it
    -didn't get any reps on 40kg db incline. wasn't surprised as felt weak warming up to it. Only did bb bench the other day (which i technically shouldn't have done) so that was probs why
    -that being said, dips went well. if i had really pushed i could have got 15 on all 3 sets but didn't want to push too hard as failures (i.e. the db incline) are very hard on your cns and had already maxed squats this workout

    -Pleased with DB incline setting a good PR
    -Dips were so-so
    -Overall a reasonably good workout, though I felt a little weak.

    tricep pushdown
    1x8 warmup
    2x8 can't remember weight


    Notes:
    -had first flying lesson in months yesterday that really killed me mentally. They are really stressful if you don't keep them up, loads of stuff to catch up on
    -this carried over today, slept most of the morning and afternoon only really got out of bed to go to the gym
    -thought workout was going to fail miserably, i didn't feel great but i did get some solid prs on deadlift and military.
    -the 140kg for deadlift was a lifetime pr for double overhand (aka normal) grip which was nice. have only ever done hook grip before above 130kg. form could have been better but it was because of this double overhand grip that it suffered a bit
    -military form was actually ok although a lot of psyching up was needed prior to lifting it
    -don't want to get back into the habit of maxing everything just to boost ego in gym, need to snap out of it

    Notes:

    -retarded workout today
    -was going to squat but all racks (and almost all weights) were taken by this massive strength crew squatting heavy
    -was forced to do deadlift instead. only got 1 rep more because only did it recently. also it was with hook grip :/
    -db incline was a bit of a fail. was really hoping to get more reps on the 38kg. i literally only just got it up the first rep. and then barely managed a second. was a bit embarassing
    -dips were piss as usual
    -did some close grip randomly.
    -due to now screwed up workout schedule, no idea whats going to happen next session. squats for sure.
    -weighed myself, and i weigh approx 185lbs. this is some 25-30lbs lighter than i was when i was hitting my previous prs before. so if i can come close to them whilst staying at this weight then that will be a big improvement. in the meantime, it kind of explains why things are progressing slower.

    Notes:

    -emotionally, this was probably one of the worst days of my life. the story is too long and uninteresting for most of you to type here and seeing as this is a log and not a diary of pessimism I will spare you all the details.
    -I felt like death, until i took craze. I have always taken jack3d before, pretty much beginning 3 months after i ever lifted a weight. It was good, but got old.
    -craze is on another level. The focus it gives you is amazing. I am still waiting on the crash though and will report back.
    -the strength gains were not there though but i am happy with other aspects of it.
    -got a pr on squats, the other stuff was just maintenance really. I am intrigued to say the least about how i will perform on a day where I am in a good mood and take craze
    -as of current (1hr post workout) I can hardly move my wrists due to forearm pump.

    edit: hard to say because of how i feel today but crash is no worse if not slightly better than on jack3d

    Notes:

    -i know ive deviated from the program
    -ridiculous doms today, mainly bi/lat/legs (makes sense) but generally all over felt pretty crappy
    -also felt sick today. have been waking up in the mornings MASSIVELY hungry, since starting ZMA. Not sure if adverse effect, or if those gains/test increase is making me want to eat more? I get on average about 3.3k/day which is easily 3-400 above maintenance. i do not intend to bulk on any more than that.
    -Woke up 6am had some weetabix and a protein shake then slept again for 5 hours. woke up feeling really sick though
    -craze may overcome mental/emotional problems but it seems to not work so well on days where you feel ill. energy and focus was there, but no where near as good as last session
    -got a 2 rep pr on military press, this was after going pretty heavy (warmups) on db shoulder press as some phaggots were upright rowing with like 40kg in the squat rack (why don't you just deadlift it off the floor). so it could well have been even better
    -was undecisive on bench. kept alternating between normal bb bench and close grip. i did the final heavy set close grip so i just called it all close grip
    -dips were meh, i had major tricep doms and was scared of injuring myself
    -threw in machine fly as didn't want to use shoulders on anything anymore
    -need to either do a different ab exercise or do nothing, doing hanging leg raise each workout is pretty stupid

    random ab stuff
    random x random


    Notes:

    -wasn't going to go but needed something productive to do today
    -wore my misc shirt, first time since training before. almost fit into it as well as i used to
    -deadlift was meh, i long for that feeling where 100kg feels ridiculously easy like it used to. went for 1 rep on 150kg after getting 140kg for 3 last week. form was probably 6/10. definitely nothing to write home about but still acceptable. I need to remember for 1 month in, this is very very good.
    -held the 150kg and the 100kg deadlifts at the top to work trap and forearm endurance
    -wanted to do some pullups as wont be training lats until sunday. i think im gradually getting better at the wide grip pullups. seeing as i am also bulking and they are a bodyweight exercise, this needs to be accounted for
    -got bored of doing the heaviest dbs in gym for shrugs so went high reps with lower weight. my forearms gave out quite a bit before my traps would have
    -decided my form with 1 arm lat raises is mediocre so have dropped the ego and decided to start doing both arms with 16kg
    -really need to start working my abs properly and not doing random ****. i used the ab machine but it was lame.

    Day 2 Week 4

    Db row
    -1x12 16kg
    -1x8 22kg
    -1x6 28kg
    -1x4 34kg
    -1x7 40kg
    -1x5 40kg

    Hammer grip chin up

    Wide grip lat pull down
    -1x4 65kg
    -1x6 60kg

    Alternating DB curls
    -1x12 8kg
    -1x3 16/18kg (massive fail)
    -1x4? 16kg
    -1x6? 14kg

    DB Shrugs (weren't great as forearms were already mega pumped)
    -1x8 26kg
    -1x7 22kg


    Notes:

    -Craze still hasn't arrived, so took some caffeine tablets instead (probably a bit too many)
    -Pleased with db row, DB curls mega fail don't ask. Pleased with Lat pulldown aswell
    -Still can only do a couple of pull-ups, though hopefully that will improve soon.
    -Forearms were mega pumped by the start of shrugs, and as such, could barely hold the weight to do shrugs.

    Day 3 Week 4

    Bench
    1x15 bar
    1x8 40kg
    1x4 60kg
    1x3 70kg
    1x3 80kg


    Squat
    1x12 bar
    1x6 40kg
    1x4 60kg
    1x2 80kg
    1x3 100kg
    1x1 110kg


    db row
    1x8 22kg (concluded I cannot do these after squats)

    wide grip pullup
    1x7 1x6


    hammer grip pullup
    1x6 1x5


    barbell curl
    1x6 bar
    1x0 40kg (didn't realise arms were that tired)


    hanging leg raise (knees tucked in)
    2x10

    hanging ab windmill thing
    2x8



    Notes:

    -had to stand for 8 consecutive hours at work yesterday, utter bs. felt so bad today and knees/legs in general hurt decided to man up and squat anyway
    -although back did feel a bit off since yesterday, still feels a bit off, i don't think its injured though but i doubt squatting really helped
    -got 80kg bench which is still ridiculously weak but can only get better
    -got 110kg squat which was alright, form like deadlift the other day 6/10 at best, but all things considered it could have been much worse
    -db rows are epic fail after squats i have decided
    -found a better pullup bar without weird handles, probably explains the pr on wide grip pullups
    -doing leg raises with knees tucked in from now on, isolates abs more without lower back coming in. also doing these ab windmill things i saw in a jeff seid video


    another note about work:

    -shifts have changed and am now working double the previous hours. will definitely complain if i have to consecutively stand for 8 hours+ x3 a week as it is simply not good for you and definitely takes a big toll on my energy

    Rotary ab machine:
    1x12 25kg


    Notes:

    -Craze finally arrived, am very pleased with it's performance. Energy increase was subtle though persisted throughout the workout.
    -Very pleased with Deadlift, was originally going for higher reps lower weight, but then thought **** it and set a new PR anyway.
    -Military press was meh, couldn't quite get 45kg but managed 42.5kg for 2 (not much weight increase but still reasonably pleased)
    -Overall, very pleased I bought Craze, gives great focus in addition to energy. Though the energy is nothing as extreme as say - Jack3d.

    1 Month mini update

    -has been 1 month since starting the log and about 6 weeks since officially starting lifting again

    -am pleased with strength progress, for 1 month in I am actually on course to hit my previous prs in around 3 months time which is pretty damn good after being out 1.5yrs

    -have also gained a decent amount of lbm the past month and am expecting more to come fairly rapidly due to muscle memory although this will taper off around month 3

    -however gained more fat than I would like, had a pretty defined 4 pack before starting and now its more of a 2.5pack (when flexed), although i guess thats what you get for wanting strength gains back so fast

    -I am going to slightly reduce my calories, so will be aiming for about 3.3k instead of ~3.5k and even less than this on non lifting days. because of this I won't be as ambitious when attempting new prs but should still see solid gains


    Supplements I currently take:

    -orange triad (2 caps/day, sometimes 4 on lifting days)
    -vitamin D (4 caps/day)
    -zma (2caps before bed)
    -craze
    -whey

    DB lateral raise
    1x10 8kg
    2x10 14kg


    Ab windmill/hanging leg raise
    2x5/2x10


    Notes:

    -felt pretty decent today, bored as fuk all day so wanted to go gym
    -knew i was going to pr military before i even picked up the bar, just felt pretty strong. low and behold got a 2 rep pr at 60kg and then got 65kg for 1
    -have been watching form videos on deadlift on youtube to see if i can refine my form even though its already pretty good.
    -really went for chest up and squeezing the lats on the warmups and on working sets
    -despite this was unimpressed with deadlift strength still. 140kg still felt pretty hard (was double overhand). 150kg felt like it did last time i deadlifted, and i pushed out another rep for the sake of getting a pr but form suffered and back hurts a bit. will definitely do light weight high reps next time
    -have found a nice combination with the ab windmill supersetted with hanging leg raise works quite well

    Ab windmill/hanging leg raise
    2x5/2x6


    Notes:

    -the new hours at work really have worn me down this week, it also sucks because it means there's no one my age there to talk to (new hours = in the day instead of weekends/at night) so that's pretty depressing
    -nevertheless gotta hit the gym anyway, also had a sore throat
    -got a 2 rep pr on 100kg squat and a 1 rep pr at 110kg, form was acceptable
    -bb bench felt pretty weak, actually not going to do that anymore. don't know if its the bench or my technique (which used to be solid) but i just feel so unstable. db bench suits me much better.
    -cranked out a solid 20 reps on dips which could have done for 2 sets but didn't want to go to failure, nice pump
    -definitely getting better at the ab windmills. good for side abs (obliques)
