    You've made pretty good progress :yy:
    Thanks! Its been decent considering I was just doing whatever I felt like on the day until I started starting strength mid Jan. Definitely could be better though as whenever it seems to be going well I have a holiday to interrupt progress.

    Hoping to rectify that this summer going to a proper gym and should be able to hit some respectable numbers by the end of the year hopefully.

    Edit: Plus it was a nice milestone finally being able to squat as much as Victoria Pendleton. Obviously she is only about 60kg but it makes you feel slightly better about yourself.

    03/05/12 - Weighed in after drinking 2 litres at the gym at 90kg. Really don't mind the weight gain if I continue to progress like this. First time on my own in a long time and I think it allowed me to get into the zone better. Music is a big help.

    Squats
    127.5 x 5
    127.5 x 5
    127.5 x 5 PB 3X5 Tough at the time but I think I can definitely go up next time.


    Bench
    107.5 x 5
    107.5 x 5
    107.5 x 5 PB 3X5 Surprisingly easy, one of the first times trying this weight so pleasantly surprised.


    Deadlift
    165 x 5 - Enjoyed how easy this was. Haven't been up to this weight for ages.

    Dips
    +15 x 5
    +15 x 4
    +15 x 4

    8 minute mile. A bit tired after all that.

    08/05/12 - Didn't start well as I forgot to have caffeine and then ipod decided not to work when i was going to squat. Overall very good session, 2PBs and an equal PB.

    Squat
    132.5 x 5
    132.5 x 5
    132.5 x 5 PB 3x5 Very pleased with this as nearly lost it on the second rep of the last set. Was worried about depth but filmed the second set and was well below parallel.


    Bench
    110 x 4 PB I think this is a PB for reps.
    110 x 3
    110 x 2

    Deadlift
    170 x 5 - Equal PB at this weight. Much easier though and even better considering it was after squats.

    Chins
    +15 x 5
    +15 x 4
    Body weight x 6

    Quick km run. Absolutely dead.

    Squat
    135 x 5
    135 x 5
    135 x 5 PB 3x5 Pleased with this. Can't go again until Monday as I am going home so should give me enough rest to go up again for then.


    Press
    62.5 x 4
    62.5 x 4
    62.5 x 4 PB for reps. Think my technique is much worse on this than my other lifts which is why it is so behind. Need to push my head through as I don't think I do when I am not concentrating on it.


    Wide Grip Pullups
    Bodyweight x 8
    Bodyweight x 8
    Bodyweight x 7

    Dips
    +15 x 5
    +15 x 5
    +15 x 5

    Biceps and then a 2k run in about 10 minutes. Hopefully a few days rest will mean some more PBs on Monday.

    Bench
    110 x 5 PB
    110 x 4
    110 x 3 - Annoyed at this, had a wobble on bottom of 4th and so spotter helped. Would have got it if I hadn't messed up.

    175 x 5 PB

    Chins
    +15 x 5

    140 x 5
    140 x 5
    140 x 5 PB 3x5 Really pleased with this. Form starting to deteriorate though so might reset after a 1RM test on friday. Not sure what kind of weight though. Got 150 with 122.5 3x5 so hopefully 170.

    Squats - With new belt
    140 x 2
    150 x 1
    160 x 1 PB - Wasn't concentrating fully and don't think I got my back straight. Have got videos of this and the 150 which I might put up later. Have realised I am leaning far too forward so will correct this when I reset.
    170 x 1 PB
    Pleased with this one, apparently there was more there so will go for more in a few weeks before I leave for summer.

    Bench
    110 x 5
    110 x 4
    110 x 4

    Deadlift
    180 x 3 - Was grip that failed me here as haven't done as much back assistance as I used to recently. Awful form though, can't seem to go heavy without back rounding so will lower next time.

    Chins
    +15 x 6
    +15 x 5
    +15 x 5

    1.2km run
