Exams over now, think I'm ready to up the weight on shoulders now so ill probably increase shoulder press to 20.5kg in 4 days and increase the OHP. Actually my first time doing OHP, had to get creative with my bench in order to do it so i don't really know what weight I can hit on it, but this can go up as well.

Have dropped a bit of weight since the start but ill put a nice stats update at the very end of the month.
Haven't had chicken wings in a while, so good!

Yo I'm appreeciating your efforts man your killing it.Some of the weights your doing are killer, im guessing your not new to this whole gym thing like I am lol

Mine's being going ok but I wanted to ask did you start on the weights you currently lift ? Because currently I'm doing ok but I'm really struggling with my left arm with dumbells. Like even at low weights my form is sloppy and most annoyingly of all I can't feel the workout and thats because the weight is low but when I do increase it my form becomes worse plus it feels like my leftie cant handle it whilat my right is miles ahead

I definitely did not start with these kid of weights!, I started as everyone does with some nice low weights. At the beginning you want to nail down the form of exercises as when you do finally up the weight later down the line, poor form can cause some injuries.

As for your left arm, you will have to just build it up slowly, so doing things with dumbbells where it has to work on its own rather than doing the barbell equivalent (where it can kind of ride on the back of the strength of your stronger right arm).

Its okay to "let the form go a bit" on maybe the last few reps of later sets when you are a bit tired. All in all, especially when going to a gym i remember hearing "leave your ego at the door and lift the weights you can lift". It may look as though you are not lifting much compared to some of the others at your gym but don't worry strength gains tend to come pretty quick for beginners so don't get down on it!

Is it your whole left arm thats weaker or just a specific set of muscles on that arm i.e. the bicep?
Oh yeah could look to do drop sets on your left arm, you will feel them bad boys : )

Haha I like that quote, its the whole arm although I understand why. For manual labour and in everyday use my right hand has been getting trained for most of my life.

Its funny though although my left arm is weaker, when I'm doing shoulder work its as strong as my right. I learnt this yesterday when I was doing a shoulder exercise with a 14kg dumbell as punishment for its general weakness (goddamnit I had to use a 5kg dumbell for a chest exercise lol)

Monitoring my progress is a really important so I always take down notes and aim to improve each weak increasing weights and so on

From the looks of it your delts seem to pretty even so its probably just the bicep and triceps on that left arm which are weaker. You could try doing one or two extra sets of exercises on that left side so that hopefully over the course of time your strength will even out.

Instead of this you could just do some drop sets on that left side. For example take dumbbell curls, pick a weight you can do 8+ reps with on that left side. Keep curling until you feel close to failure or are at failure then quickly change the weight to a lighter weight (at least 30% lighter if not more, going marginally lighter will not really work it has to be a sizeable decrease really) then curl that weight until you hit failure (so literally no rest in-between the two sets) . This should give your left arm a strong stimulus to grow hopefully. You can apply drop sets to most exercises as well so they are pretty versatile.

Hope this helps! Good luck

Also bought some monster apples from lidl today and they are pretty tasty.

First proper training session will be on Sunday so todays kick about was good to get back some co-ordination after this holiday break.
Think i will stay at these weights on chest for a while. Plus todays workout was total decimation of the triceps, could see all three heads of them when i looked in the mirror. Missed out on incline chest flys today but i'll try fit them in next time.

Got through last night with virtually 0 alcohol kcal's (had a gulp of cider) so that went pretty well. Shouldn't have eaten that coffee cake today, really need to tighten up on my lunchtime deserts but did go shopping today and bought some stuff to tryout all with pretty good macros, so it'll be some interesting eating next week. (Tinned Fish FTW).

As of today going to try and focus a bit more attention on the long head of the bicep. First football training session tomorrow so i'll really feel how unfit I'll be reminded of how unfit I am. Hopefully will do some running next week as well, haven't been this week as i hurt my foot mysteriously and have never worked out what I did to it.

Legs a little tired today but to be expected. Got a 9-6 in uni tomorrow so gotta pack up something vaguely decent so I'm not tempted to nip into town on lunch break for food and I'll probably be forced to exercise after dinner which is not ideal for me.
Had Kai Lan today, probably my favourite vegetable but song don't eat it too often as it can be a bit pricey ; (
Will measure my body fat on the weekend at boots and put some progress pics up on here which I'll do this month and at the end of February. Should've measured my body fat before I started in hindsight >_<

No weights today had no time and didn't feel like smashing out a sesh after dinner as when I've done it in the past, I always find it difficult to sleep. I've run out of cookies now but I'll be having a re-feed day tomorrow which I always look forward to. Will hit Chest and Triceps tomorrow after football. I think my raid on the cookies today was ok as i believe I'm still in a caloric deficit today just a different ratio of macros for today than normal.

Post workout

- Protein Shake (Water)

So I ate like an absolute bro today, total disregard for being somewhat healthy but its the re-feed day and it keeps my sanity . Ended up working out after dinner which sucks as I'm now so awake that it's gonna be a challenge to get to sleep however I couldn't bring myself to miss weights two days in a row (gotta remind my body to hang onto that muscle!).

Workout was fine today that being said, felt really strong but it's probably since have some actual glycogen in the muscles for once after filling up on carbs. The reason I don't go heavy on skull crushers if you are wondering is because mainly my form gets a bit ragged for my liking and i don't put my elbows further back behind my head result in a weaker contraction (imo). Drop sets on the overhead extensions are awesome (i do these two handed, not that strong).

Back to the lower carb life tomorrow, farewell milk and spaghetti see you in 5 days.

Well today was an interesting one. Woke up at 6 in the morning, ate my breakfast ended up going to hospital for the whole day not eating anything until 6 in the afternoon/evening then ate a large meal then finally exercised.

Ordered some more protein today as there was a sale on and my supply of whey is dwindling so I though I'd pull the trigger while the price is good. That slice of lemon cake cheered me up but I regret it already...... hard to tell if I'm under maintenance because I'm feeling pretty full but I usually count my protein roughly then let fats and carbs fall into place (trying to avoid really sugary non natural stuff, I'm looking at you cake!) + taking into account my mini fast in the day.

Will up the Russian twists to 3X85/ 3X90 and the crunches to 3x45 next time. My squats are lint as my setup is quite awkward so i use a light weight for safety (its hard for me to do squats with the barbell because putting it back in the stands is a pain, (using my bench now)).

Forgot to measure my body fat today but I've definitely made progress so far.

Anyone know of any cheap vegetables that you can snack on during the day? i feel like I've been eating too much fruit recently.

Could definitely go a little heavier on the incline flys next time, hadn't done them in so long that i didn't really know where I was at with them. Loving the drop sets with triceps, i find it works really well. Starting to enjoy bench press for some reason.

In the process of trying out most supermarkets canned sardines, tuna, salmon etc to find out what I prefer. My favourite Sardines so far are tesco's own brand in okie in chilli oil. Had tesco's brand in tomato sauce, very inferior to the chilli oil ones imo. If anyone wants to try some new cheeses a try, manchego is worth a try.

Re-feed tomorrow :DDDDDD

Oh dear, well I learnt that cottage cheese >> quark cheese today. i bought some quark cheese out of curiosity, mainly because it had similar macros to cottage cheese and I wanted to see if it was nice. Tried some of it at lunch and found that cottage cheese is far better in terms of taste (for me at least). Just gotta find a way to eat the remaining 120g or so i have left of it now over the next few days.

Lately I've been looking at different vegetables that i can cut up and use to make my own salad. So far i'm thinking of : Celery, Tomatoes, Red Cabbage, Peppers, Cucumbers and Carrots.

Also "measured" my body fat at boots today. I say "measured" as it quoted 18.7% which i believe to be a bit inaccurate, so sadly I will not be able to compare my body fat throughout the next 2 months I'll just have to eyeball it with the photos.
