    I love that guy

    So basically I`ve reset madcows based on what I hit at my meet, except for the deadlift. I`m continuing where I left off as my new max would mean jumping about 20kgs.

    So current 1RM's:
    Squat: 140kg
    Bench: 130kg
    Deadlift 185kg (using 169kg for spreadsheet)
    Row 98kg (estimated)
    Military 73kg (estimated)

    Yesterdays workout went like this:

    Squat

    Reps Weight
    5 58
    5 72
    5 86
    5 101
    5 115

    Bench

    5 54
    5 67
    5 80
    5 94
    5 107

    Row

    5 40
    5 50
    5 60
    5 71
    5 81

    All felt good. Paused bench as well. Did some arm work as well.

    Got another meet lined up: 25th July, Scottish Unequipped, Glasgow Palace of Arts which gives me around 11 weeks or so. If I was a strict spreadsheet disciple and assuming no stalls I will be somewhere around:

    Squat 170kg
    Bench 160kg
    Dead 210kg

    So it`s a good job I`m not OCD

    At this point I would like to aim for:

    Squat 150kg
    Bench 140kg
    Dead 200kg

    Given my last meet I feel these are achievable given no injuries and steady progress and a good diet. Time will tell. I`ll get the other videos of my squat and bench up hopefully tomorrow.

    I`ll be going out tonight to do some hill sprints for the first time. If I don`t update this again you`ll know I`ve died and gone to powerlifting heaven. God bless you all.

    This is only acceptable if the stepper machines are in front of you.

    Check.

    There was also a "fitness instructor" getting one of his beeyatches to superset 5 minutes on the stepper then stepping up and down onto a box, then back onto the stepper.

    Weird.

    That really doesn't count as a superset, just a terrain change

    Can you do Oly stuff? That's pretty similar to sprinting after a while to be quite honest.

    Plus it's fun to throw stuff around.

    Never tried any of it other than cleans. Not sure how I would fit it in with the 5x5 really

    Monday 17th May

    I missed Firdays workout due to my selfish son being ill so instead of doing 3 reps with the weight on the Friday and 5 on the Monday I jumped straight in with 5.

    SQUAT
    5x61
    5x76
    5x91
    5x106
    5x121

    BENCH
    5x56
    5x70
    5x84
    5x99
    5x113

    ROW
    5x42
    5x53
    5x64
    5x74
    5x85

    Rows were deifnately harder this week. I had to use a bit looser form to get the weight up at the end which I don`t think is too much of an issue as long as I don`t go mad. Will hold off on a reset and just use a bit of body English in the next few weeks I think....see how it goes.

    I`ve discovered 2 things that annoy me in the gym.

    1. People who ask if I need a spotter. No I don`t need a spotter. If I did, I would ask.
    2. Idiots who hog the one and only squat rack. A guy went into the squat rack straight after me and after warming up put 3 plates a side on the bar. Now this is a rare occurance in my gym and apart from 3-4 guys I have yet to see ANYONE squat parallel or better with 2 or more plates.

    So before squatting this douche drags over a bench into the squat rack and I figure he`s gonna be doing some box squats. Again a rare sight in my gym but I was intrigued. Turns out the bench was only there to give him an indication of how far to go down so a 1/4 squat if I`m being generous. Had a little chuckle to myself and carried on with my benching, rowing and finished up with some arm work. Even after all this the guy was still in the rack.

    I have come to the conclusion that as a general rule in life, people who do not look strong, aren't. Not always, as I know some VERY strong people who don`t look like they could snap a twig in tow, but from my experience in my local gym, people who don`t look like they can squat 3+plates and load the bar up as such, won`t get anywhere near parallel.

    lol, I know the feeling.

    Power Cleans were actually originally part of 5x5 instead of Rows mate. I didn't mean that however, I meant instead of some of your conditioning - Complexes etc.

    Everything felt pretty good today. For some odd reason I felt the need to experiment with my set-up on the bench and instead of going flatfooted, I tucked my feet behind me pushing from the toes. Felt pretty solid which was surprising. I noticed a lot more leg drive without my ass coming off the bench which happens sometimes when flat footed. I`ll keep them tucked for now, see how it goes.

    5x54
    5x65
    5x76
    3x89
    10x65

    Everything felt pretty good considering I didn`t sleep well the night before and had been out drinking until 4am on Sunday morning. God damn rugby club dinners

    There is a definate thrust with the knees as I get to the heavy sets of rows. At the moment it`s fairly minimal and will keep an eye on it but I expect to reset soon, although I`d like to row 100kg before I do.

    Weight is gradually increasing and I`ve had a few people say I`m looking bigger which is always good. Diet wise I`m not sure if I ever put it up but here it is

    100g oats + 50g protein powder + skimmed milk + yoghurt

    25g protein shake + water

    200g chicken + rice + apple + bag of chipsticks (mmmm)

    25g protein shake with water + apple

    tin of tuna + mayo + brown roll

    Post workout
    50g protein shake + 35g maltodextrin + 35g glucose

    250g minced beef + veg + potatoes (mince n' tatties )

    That`s my diet, every day mon-fri (I eat how I feel at weekends) About once a week I`ll replace the mince n tatties with a frozen pizza or something.

    Wednesday 2nd June

    Deadlift

    Military

    Squat
    5x64

    5x96
    5x96

    Deadlifts felt great today. I read something about filling your lungs before you lift and it definately helped

    Military was hard but I got all the reps.

    On a side note my belt arrived today. It only just fits. Not gonna return it though as it`s fairly cheap and if I use it more I`ll spend a bit more money (or lose weight )

    Tried it on and I have no idea where to have the belt sit. Too low and it sits on my hips and digs into me when I squat down. Need to experiment.

    It'll loosen up pretty quickly and wear in mate. Especially as it's crappy leather like mine
