    Thanks boys. Hoping to be Belyaev quality someday.

    Single Arm DB OHP 35kg
    4 right 3 left
    2 right 3 left
    5 right 5 left

    I don't know what could cause this. Perhaps I need to spend longer warming up. I now see that the problem with a db is when I load more plates onto the db I am forced to press the db with the db further and further away from my shoulder.

    That's some pretty solid DB pressing :|

    Thankyou. My goal is to OHP more than you can squat.

    Perhaps I'll be better off with trying to bench more than you can squat then.

    Bench Press 2x5 97.5kg 1x5 87.5kg 1x5 100kg I was sharing the bench with this dude and I miss loaded the weight on the third set. On the final set he told me 2.5kg wouldn't make a difference so I just went with it.
    Squat 165kg 1x5 1x3 1x1
    DB Rows 3x5 46kg
    Curls 3x8 14kg DBs

    On the squat I was just tired. I have developed this bad habit of waking up in the middle of the night and just not being able to go back to sleep. I am thinking of just reading some boring ass book to resume my slumber.

    Nice pressing
    Thanks. I wanna press 100kg by the end of the year.

    22/8/2011
    Bench Press with the worst form ever 3x5 100kg
    Squat 165kg 4/5/3 Once again I had bar sliding issues. On the last rep of the last set the bar was literally halfway down my back.
    DB Rows 3x5 48kg
    Curls

    I need to sort out this bar sliding. Also my wrists feel like they are going to snap when I squat.

    Mate that sounds a tall order. What you press atm? Looking at this page I'm guessing ~75? +25kg on press in 4 months is huge progress !

    :O

    Good luck anyway

    I've pressed 70kg for 3x3. I am going to try and get that for 3x5 in my next gym session rather than bench pressing. To help me in this quest I'm gonna try to gain a lot of weight.

    I just read through your freshers pulling thread and loled at how insecure some people are. If you wanna beat me then lifting is gonna have to be more than just a hobby bro. If you do find out how to pull please let me know as I am going to the halls as a 2nd year. I am more muscular than the rugby players and nerdier than the WoW players.
