    Good session at last
    Bench 30x5 30x5 40x4 55x5 55x5 55x5
    Squat 20x5 40x5 60x5 70x5 80x1 90x5 90x5 90x5
    Deadlift 60x5 70x5 80x5 90x1 100x5

    Amazingly my fantastic university gym has a no deadlifting over 100kg rule as it may damage the floor. In a dedicateds weight lifting room. With those black hard plastic mat things down I hate my gym

    Just go over 100kg anyway.

    Are they going to come over and count your weights as you're lifting?

    And if they do claim ignorance to the rule or say you thought you were lifting less and accidentally put on 110.....:cool:

    Cheers - not really that long, i was a gym rat (machines) for about 6 months (I cry thinking about wasted time), ****ed about with free weights for about a month and half then did SS for about a month properly, didnt do much last term at uni, then have been hitting it for the past month or so properly.

    I guess I can go over 100 but its where do I draw the line - in a year i should be deadlifting a hell of a lot more than 100 so its not really a long term solution

    True, you locked into a years membership at this gym then or can you look for others?

    If you're gonna be paying for membership at this gym you could do something like smolov at 100kg ish deadlift where you just rep the hell out of 100 until your membership runs out?

    Cheers.

    My concern is that i'm developing a belly... I wish I could tell you my weight but the scales I have are god aweful - they're reading me at 14st 4ish but i think may be about half a stone over (given what people who know their weight say when using them) - which would make me about 13st 11 - BMI 26.9....
    Eat a bit less?
    Mini-cut?
    **** it and keep going?


    Bear in mind i'm doing this for 60% aesthetics 40% strength... - (But im willing to get a bit fat now if it means ill make faster progress and be able to cut quickly later on)

    I would personally say **** it and keep going. However, you could always try and switch to a clean bulk.

    Squat 100kg 3*5
    Bench 60 3*5

    All I had time for/ felt up to - my backs been really weird for a while so likely a good idea I didn't deadlift.
    Still don't feel 100%
