    Chase for Zeus STRENGTH

    Chase for Zeus STRENGTH

    The main reason I'm starting this is to keep track of my progress, post clips, and of course seek help with exercise-form!

    Short background:

    I have always been big (neither fat nor skinny). But in elementary school I was fat and I wanted to lose fat, of course I did that and lost a lot of weight, but i also lost muscles and strength, otherwise during that period I knew nothing about training and did not even train. I decided to add muscle mass and I started to research. After researching I started doing push-ups and biceps curls. I know i was stupid, but every beginning is hard or stupid. So I did more and more research and after about a month or two, i decided to go to the gym. Then I had all needed information about exercise and nutrition. I started doing "Strong Lifts 5x5". And I loved that program (i love it still). In 3-4 months of active training, recovery (i mean i went out a lot at parties but who cares) and nutrition. As i said i wasn't fat but i still had some fat to lose but nothing dramatically. My one rep max for deadlift was 309 pounds. I did 4 reps of squat with 220 pounds, my bench was around 165 pounds for 4-5 reps, and my overhead press one rep max was 110 pounds. Suddenly, an outbreak of the virus corona appeared and i didn't want to go to gym anymore. Since my entire country is quarantined and we have a prohibition of movement, I decided to start this log.

    I hope it will be at least a little interesting for you to see my progress. See you below!

    Regular Pull-ups: 8 sets @ 8,6,4,4,4,3,3,3 reps

    Comments: Next workout i will do Decline Push-ups, because i can do 30 reps of regular push-ups and i don't want endurance. I did lateral raises with backpack and it's around 7-10 kilos, i really didn't count number of reps, but it wasn't more then 15. I did biceps curls because i don't know i just want to add extra size and strength in arms. As i said i don't have access to weight because it's a virus epidemic. Stay healthy guys see you tomorrow!

    Comments: Why did I workout today, its my rest day? Well, I feel a lot of energy today, so I wanted to do it. I think it won't affect my growth, because I was really satisfied with today's workout. Well I think I could to more diamond Pushups, but I didn't I don't know why, but I will try to focus more on diamond Pushups on my next workouts because I want to reach 20-25 diamond Pushups rep max. Pump was amazing too. Tomorrow I will do leg workout because I didn't do them last 3 workouts. See you tomorrow.

    Comments: Why didn't I do diamond pushups? I felt a slight pain in my wrist, I didn't want to force it, it was probably a bad form of exercise, so I will do my best next workout, to do a proper form of diamond pushups. Why did I do 10 sets? I finish 8 sets relatively quickly, so this is some type of progressive overload. I wasn't really satisfied with today's workout, but who cares. See you guys next workout.
